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.
What's coming up on Parks and Recreation? — Kevin
NATALIE: Besides an elegant wedding? What the French call "le threeway sex." Yes, Tom's head just may explode if he gets his way and has a menage-a-Pawnee. What's more: One-third of that saucy triangle could be Ann. We'll wait while your head explodes.
Got any good SVU scoop? — Brad
ADAM: Thanks to Detective Rollins' black sheep sister (guest star Lindsay Pulsipher), the SVU squad will have another run-in with Internal Affairs' Sgt. Tucker (Robert John Burke). "He's the Javert of SVU," executive producer Warren Leight jokes. Tucker will get his claws into Rollins when she shoots her sister's deadbeat boyfriend to stop him from attacking her. There's just one little wrinkle: Rollins' sister recently took out an insurance policy on her babydaddy. "The question becomes," Leight teases, "did her sister set this up... to make the big score?"
I can't believe the doctors quit! What's coming up on Grey's Anatomy? — Will
NATALIE: Even though the doctors have left Seattle Grace, Meredith still has a mole back at the hospital who keeps her apprised of her patients' conditions and all the latest scoop on what's left of the hospital. Any guesses?
Will the hunt for Eli David and Jackie Vance's killer be resolved in this year's NCIS finale? — Frank
ADAM: That would make sense, right? Although executive producer Gary Glasberg tells us the effects of those murders on Ziva and Director Vance will be felt throughout the rest of the season, Rocky Carroll isn't so sure the case will necessarily be tied up. "This may be something that spills into next season," he teases. "I wouldn't be all that surprised if the resolve of this happens when [no one's thinking], 'Hey, this is the episode where we solve it.' It's going to be one of those things that catches us off guard again."
Is Jeremy really dead on The Vampire Diaries? How will Elena ever get over that? — Jessie
NATALIE: You'll find out if he's truly a goner before the next episode ends. But regardless of whether he lives, Elena is going to be in a bit of a state for a while. At times she will seem complete completely numb, while at others she will display a fiery recklessness that leads her to do something she might ultimately regret.
Why is Scott Foley's Jake such a creeper on Scandal? — Linda
NATALIE: Just because Jake was spying on Olivia via hidden cameras, it doesn't necessarily mean that he's a creeper — at least that's what Foley says. "Jake definitely isn't doing this on his own," he teases. "He was hired by a group or a person to keep an eye on her and to find out something about her." Certainly his boss/es didn't anticipate that he'd fall for Olivia. That will be one interesting date.
Any details on the Morgan-centric Criminal Minds episode? — Nancy
ADAM: Familiar faces! Executive producer Erica Messer tells us the show is finalizing deals for a lot of the actors who were in "Profiler, Profiled," to return, including Skipp Sudduth, who played Morgan's arresting officer Detective Stan Gordinski. The episode's case will "ultimately lead back to the youth center," where Morgan was sexually abused as a child, Messer says. "It will bring him more closure that he's been needing for six years."
Please tell me Negan is The Walking Dead comic book character that's coming before the end of Season 3! — Johnny
NATALIE: Johnny! As if The Governor isn't killing enough of our main characters, you want another sick and twisted dictator on the scene? But no, it's someone else. "We're going to keep that stuff in our back pocket, but everyone on our show is pretty excited about that character and looking forward to getting him on our show." So who is it then? I'd put my money on seeing Morgan (Lennie James) again.
Is this week's CSI: NY finale going to be the end of the series? — Katelyn
ADAM: "No one's told us to write it so that it ends," executive producer Pam Veasey says. Nevertheless, as has been the case for the past two seasons, the show's writers had to craft an episode — in which Mac & Co. try to solve a case of a police shooting of an unarmed man — that could serve as a fitting end for either eventuality.
Heather saw Cat and Vincent kiss. How are they going to handle that on Beauty and the Beast? —Sarah
NATALIE: Well, nosy sister Heather will expect a meeting with Cat's man, but the dinner doesn't go so well. Let's just say that Vincent does something that gives Heather a very bad impression. As a result, Heather and Tess will stage a "Vincent intervention."
Turkey Baster. Disgusting. That is all. Any Shameless scoop? — Steph
NATALIE: Just you wait, Steph. The baster was tame compared to what they'll do next in an attempt to get pregnant. It's probably the first and only time that we can say that Shameless and Parks and Recreation will share similar plotlines in the near future. (See above.)
That Suits finale promo is not a red herring, right? Mike is going to tell Rachel his secret? — Gina
ADAM: All we'll say is that Rachel's Harvard ordeal is not over. She tells Mike that she was rejected because of Louis' relationship with Sheila (which, remember, is a lie Louis came up with) and tries to use Mike's status as a Harvard "alum" to make a case against Louis. Will he help her or come clean?
Adam's Mega Rave: Nathan Fillion may not get to play the deeply emotional card that often on Castle, but he still knows how to make us feel his character's anguish. Now we can't wait to see him go all Liam Neeson and save Alexis!
Natalie's Mini Rant: This week on 2 Broke Girls, Andy Dick played a super-creepy (does he do anything else?), litigious "marionette manipulator." "I'm not drunk enough for this," Max says, and we were right there with her.
