Every week, editors Adam Bryant and Natalie Abrams satisfy your need for TV scoop. Please send all questions to email@example.com or tweet them to @adam_bryant or @NatalieAbrams.
I heard there may be trouble ahead for Booth and Brennan on Bones. Please tell me that's not true! — Hilary, via Twitter
ADAM: The couple did seem to be having some serious communication issues before Brennan got shot in this week's episode. I think you can put safe money on those issues not being quickly resolved. In the meantime, Brennan will also have trouble with another man in her life: new squintern Oliver Wells (Brian Klugman), who has some issues with Brennan's authority. "[He] is completely un-intimidated by Brennan. He does respect her, but he doesn't revere her," executive producer Stephen Nathan tells us. "That's a new thing for these interns because [Brennan] holds their future in her hands. He has so many degrees and is so accomplished, he doesn't need her. It's very disorienting and disconcerting for her."
OMG! Why is David Rosen being framed for murder on Scandal?! — Kate
NATALIE: We were just as shocked as you by the promo, so we got Josh Malina to fill us in — sort of. "First of all, can we really be surprised? After everything poor David Rosen has been put through, wouldn't it be a disappointment if he didn't wake up next to a dead woman? And, sure, the promo suggests he's been framed, but all we see is Olivia saying that. She could be wrong. You feel me?" Let the conspiracy theories begin!
What's going to happen on The Good Wife now that Alicia is an equity partner? — Jackie
ADAM: Well, that hothead David Lee isn't going to like it, but look for an aggressive, outspoken Alicia to emerge. In fact, the face-off will be so intense that two of our favorite Lockhart Gardner employees will consider leaving the firm! Another side effect: Alicia and Will's romantic past rear its ugly head in a most unusual way. (Seriously, you're not going to believe what you see.)
Any Klaus scoop before he heads to New Orleans on The Vampire Diaries? — Rachel
NATALIE: Can we say hot hybrid sex? Joseph Morgan's wishes have been granted and in an episode to air in March, Klaus is finally getting some lovin'. But who's the lucky girl? Share your best guesses in the comments!
Do you have any news on the upcoming NCIS: LA spin-off? — Bradley, via Twitter
ADAM: In the backdoor pilot episode of NCIS: LA, our merry band of agents meet the NCIS: Red team when a Marine's murder in Idaho bears a striking resemblance to that of a suspected terrorist in Los Angeles. Sam and Callen head to Idaho, where they spend the night (in perhaps uncomfortably close quarters!) at the mobile unit's makeshift headquarters. Although there is some mild flirtation between Callen and Kim Raver's Agent Paris, it seems she's not exactly over John Corbett's retired analyst. But it's not all about the new team: Look for that mysterious box that was addressed to Kensi in "Kill House" to reappear — this time on Deeks' desk!
Is Derek really quitting Seattle Grace on Grey's Anatomy? — Leo
NATALIE: Yes, but don't worry: His resignation is most likely part of a plan to save the hospital. What should worry you: He's not the only one. "[The plane crash survivors] come to terms with the fact that they don't feel good about taking the settlement money," Patrick Dempsey says. "Callie really feels that the best thing for them is to give the money back and to possibly buy the hospital. They look into it and realize they don't have enough money and need to find some outside capital." It's a shame Addison and her trust fund couldn't help them out.
It's been a while since you offered up any Big Bang Theory scoop. What's up? — Barney
NATALIE: Surprisingly, each of our favorite nerds will actually have a date for Valentine's Day — even Raj! But it's Leonard and Penny's night out — which hits a rough patch when she witnesses her ex getting engaged — that will really make your heart swell after Leonard makes a proposal of his own. (No, not like all those other times.)
Can't wait for Body of Proof to come back! What's the dynamic like between Megan and Mark Valley's new character Tommy? — Lisa
ADAM: Although the premiere doesn't give us too much of Megan and Tommy's backstory, it's clear from Megan's icy demeanor that she's still a bit heartbroken. But she's got bigger problems to worry about, including... her daughter being kidnapped! When Megan's maternal instincts cloud her judgment and her daughter is put in harm's way, look for Tommy to literally save her life. That ought to melt the ice a bit!
I can't wait for this week's Once Upon a Time! Is there anything you can tell us about Mr. Gold's reunion with his son? — Dakota
NATALIE: The details of how this reunion takes place were actually foretold long ago, as a flashback will reveal — and that's not a good thing, at least for one series regular. Suffice it to say, do not miss the final 30 seconds of Sunday's episode.
Got any spoilers about the new season of Psych? — Heath
ADAM: Relationship troubles abound! Look for Shawn to be majorly uncomfortable when Juliet is forced to go on a number of dates for an undercover case she's working. (Making matters worse, she's dating mature, successful guys while Shawn is home sitting on his parents' couch!) Elsewhere, Gus' new relationship might be over before it starts once Shawn becomes convinced that she's a serial killer.
Will Brenda Song return on New Girl? I loved her! — Shari
NATALIE: You are not alone in that assessment. The producers also love Daisy, Winston's flirty, not-married new pal, which is why you'll see her again next week! "She's really funny and we really like her," creator Liz Meriwether says, noting that because Jess/Nick and Schmidt/Cece are hitting bumpy roads ahead, the romance quotient on the show will, for now, be filled by Winston. "She's tough love for him, which is fun and gives it back to him pretty intensely. She's almost like a coach for him."
Will anyone else find out Oliver's secret on Arrow? — Dan
NATALIE: You betcha! And soon! In fact, you may be able to spot a clue in the awesome new trailer — OK, we'll just tell you, it's Felicity. But will she join Oliver's Scooby gang? The answer will surprise you.
Adam's Mega Rave: Thank you, CBS, for (potentially) bringing Lost's Josh Holloway back to TV. Seriously, what took everybody so long?
Natalie's Mini Rant: If The Walking Dead goes on the hunt for the Dixon brothers like they did with Sophia, I'm out.
