Every week, editors Adam Bryant and Natalie Abrams satisfy your need for TV scoop. Please send all questions to firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet them to @adam_bryant or @NatalieAbrams.
Got any Castle scoop on Beckett's answer to Castle's proposal? — Denise, via Twitter
ADAM: Yep, you'll get it — and Beckett's decision about the job in Washington — immediately when the show returns. But creator Andrew W. Marlowe suggests that the answer is the easy part. "There are four possible outcomes and each of them have their own particular consequences," he says. "There's no version of this that's easy and that they live happily ever after — even with the good stuff." And while Rick would certainly be heartbroken if Beckett said no, Marlowe says Beckett has the most to lose. "How can she make any choice without giving something up? She'll have to sacrifice something," he teases.
Please tell me you have some Damon or Stefan scoop on The Vampire Diaries! —Shari
NATALIE: A shady lady-vamp is coming to Mystic Falls, and though at first it seemed like she was one of Stefan's numerous exes, she's actually in town to see Silas. This is not necessarily a happy reunion.
Have you got any scoop on the final episodes of Breaking Bad? I can't wait to see how Hank reacts to learning Walt's secret! — Philip
ADAM: The first episode back continues the flash-forward from the Season 5 opener — and Walt will use a tool from his trunk for a very specific mission. As for the Hank of it all, I'd encourage a little patience. The usually loquacious blowhard is rendered pretty much speechless through a lot of the episode -- which makes it all the more important when he finally has something to say.
Any chance we'll see Glenn and Maggie's wedding on The Walking Dead? —James
NATALIE: The group is in desperate need of a lighter moment, right? New showrunner Scott Gimple was coy on the impending nuptials. "As far as the sweetness goes, as far as love goes, as far as emotional moments between the characters, it's a huge part of the season," he teases. "Horror doesn't really mean anything if you don't really care about the characters." We're guessing The Governor won't be on the guest list though.
What is coming up on Parenthood this season? — Gina
ADAM: I think I hear wedding bells! Look for an on-again-off-again couple to get engaged. (Leave your guesses below!) But the happy couple won't be the only ones facing big changes. After successfully battling breast cancer last season, Kristina — like her sister-in-law Julia — will be diving right back into work, as she starts a run for the mayor's office. Mayor Braverman... we love that sound of that!
Very excited that Justin Hartley is playing Victoria's son on Revenge. Got any scoop?
NATALIE: When Revenge returns this fall, five months will have passed since Patrick showed up on Victoria's doorstep. Mother and son are getting along swimmingly, much to Charlotte's chagrin when she returns from Europe, having been evicted from the Graysons' Paris abode. Charlotte recognizes that Patrick's presence threatens her father's new position as governor, and she intends to do something about it. Maybe we like her after all?
I can't wait for Nikita to return for its final season. Please tell me there will be a happy ending for "Mikita"! — Victoria
ADAM: No word on a happily-ever-after yet, but when the final season begins, the star-crossed operatives are still apart, thanks to the manhunt that's ensued since Amanda framed Nikita for assassinating the president. Although Michael eventually tracks down Nikita, Amanda's influence is as significant as ever. Look for her to help an outspoken public figure set a trap for Nikita, who unwittingly falls into it while trying to clear her name.
Anything on The Originals? —Harriet
NATALIE: We'll soon find out that Katherine wasn't the only woman who came between Klaus and Elijah. Back in the 1800s, Klaus was entangled with a stunning Creole woman named Celeste, who also had a fondness for Elijah, who wasn't as busy as his brother keeping the residents of New Orleans in check. I'm sure that'll end well!
I like The Bridge, but how do Sonya's co-workers put up with her? — Jessica
ADAM: Forget about her co-workers — wait until you see how she handles the other men in her life! You'll get your first glimpse when she picks up a man in a bar in Episode 2. Suffice it to say, Sonya's seduction technique is a little unconventional. Speaking of outside-the-office action: Look for married Marco to receive some extramarital temptation from a surprising source.
Mike Schur said Diane was Ron's wife in your Parks and Recreation interview. Does that mean they're getting married? —Sampson
NATALIE: I went back to executive producer Mike Schur with that very query and he said his choice of words was likely inadvertent. But there could be a wedding in their future since Ron and Diane are having a baby together. "They are probably the next in line to tie the knot, given the events of the finale," he says.
What's the scoop on British Harvey on Suits? Can Harvey handle him? — Liam
ADAM: British Harvey, aka Stephen Huntley (Max Beesley), will show up as a result of Harvey and Darby's arrangement to take down Jessica. Harvey is wary of him at first, according to creator Aaron Korsh, but Stephen eventually wins him over — that is, until British Harvey "starts to have some flirtation with Donna." Go find your own British Donna, amirite?
Got any scoop on Under the Dome? —Jerald
NATALIE: The military will finally set up a Visitor's Day, where the residents of Chester's Mill who were caught outside the dome will finally get to see their loved ones. But the military has an ulterior motive: to launch a missile at the dome that could endanger the lives of everyone, inside and out. Let's just say that Barbie's military experience will really come in handy.
Natalie's Mega Rave: I both love and hate True Blood for pitting Eric against Pam in a death match. So help me, if you make maker kill progeny (or vice versa), I will angrily protest... for a minute, and then I'll tune back in to see how you fix it!
Adam's Mini Rant: The only thing worse than Maggie's short, redheaded wig on the new season of The Newsroom is the inanity of her Sex and the City-themed freak-out being conveniently on YouTube and being the cause for her most recent breakup from Don.
