Every week, senior reporter Natalie Abrams satisfies your need for TV scoop. Please send all questions to firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet them to @NatalieAbrams.
Is Quinn really no longer a Gladiator on Scandal? —Jonas
Well, for now. But wait until Olivia finds out that Huck ousted her from the group! Prepare for one Huck of a fight! "He doesn't feel bad about what he did to Quinn," Guillermo Diaz says. "He only feels bad that Olivia is upset at him for doing what he did. [But] he's not apologizing for it and he's standing his ground."
Any How I Met Your Mother scoop? —Katia
The series finale is titled "Last Forever," which, like most HIMYM episodes, will fiddle with the timeline. "We're a very time-jumpy show, so you will see a lot of the future and where everyone is in the end," HIMYM boss Craig Thomas says. But when is the end -- like past 2030? "Well, that is the future!" he says with a wink. Thomas admits that he and co-creator Carter Bays haven't written the finale yet, but "we know what the last minute or two is like."
Is Rumplestiltskin really dead on Once Upon a Time? —Tamryn
"He's definitely dead," executive producer Edward Kitsis says. But I mean, come on, this is a show about magic! "He went into that knife, it looked like death to me, but he's the Dark One," he adds. Sounds like he's not totally dead just yet.
NCIS scoop, please! I can't believe Delilah is paralyzed! —Charlie
I know, right? Naturally, Delilah's recovery will strain her relationship with McGee, but executive producer Gary Glasberg promises that they won't break up. "It's going to be a bumpy road for them, but I think you'll see how it brings them closer together," he says.
Does Skye know she's an 0-8-4 on Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.? —Dan
Yes! Chloe Bennet tells me that Coulson told Skye the truth about her parents' deaths and her potential to have special powers. But don't fit her for a cape yet. "I have no birth certificate," she reminds me. "I could still be a human. I could be something else." Get ready for a very dark episode that deals with the fallout from the ultimate reveal.
What can you tell me about the new season of Hannibal? — Mark
If you liked the big twist at the end of last season -- Dr. Lecter visits Will in the asylum -- get ready for even more switcheroos. This season, Hannibal becomes an FBI consultant helping Jack Crawford build psychological profiles of murderers. But is Jack just trying to keep Hannibal close so he can test Will's theories about Hannibal being the bad guy? The shocking first scene of the premiere will answer that question.
When will Alicia learn that Will knew the truth about the tampered ballot box on The Good Wife? —Lucas
"Very soon," executive producer Robert King says. "It is pretty darn fast." Uh-oh.
Do you have any scoop on the fate of Alex's dad on Grey's Anatomy? —Mandy
He's not dead... yet. We'll actually meet his estranged wife (played by Victorious alum Susan Chuang), who is lured to Grey Sloan Memorial under false pretenses in the midseason return. Suffice it to say, she's about as happy with Jimmy as Alex has been.
I'm loving True Detective. What can you tell me about what's coming up? — Kyle
Hart and Cohle's investigation of the burned-down church will lead them to a good ol'-fashioned tent revival complete with a suspiciously charismatic preacher (Boardwalk Empire's Shea Whigam). In possibly related news, by the end of that same episode, Cohle and Hart will get a first look at the monster they're looking for — or, at the very least, a creepy dude with some seriously disturbing issues.
Any last-minute scoop on The Vampire Diaries' 100th episode?? —Ginny
First, read this item very carefully. Second, while I know many of you are looking for an Elena-Damon reunion, it'll actually be Katherine who shares a moment with her doppelganger. One other thing: Caroline and Klaus will cross paths. (And yes, that's a euphemism.)
What will we see of the Chicago P.D.'s personal lives in coming episodes? —Dawn
Look for sparks to fly between Ruzek and Burgess, as well as Halstead and Allie, his high school flame. When there's a death in Allie's family and Halstead is assigned to the case, they reconnect, much to the joy of her parents. The only problem? Allie lives in Phoenix.
Adam has been trapped in the cage on Supernatural since Season 5. Is he ever getting out of Hell? —Sarah
Unfortunately, Adam is not one of the many familiar faces returning to Supernatural this season, but there is some hope to see the third Winchester brother again. "As long as he's in the cage, there's always a chance," showrunner Jeremy Carver says. "He's not coming out tomorrow, but there's always a chance."
Mega Rave: Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. finally finds its footing this week with an actually shocking reveal: While we all focused on Coulson's origins, the show lets it slip that Skye is an 0-8-4. Keep it up, S.H.I.E.L.D.!
Mini Rant: The award for least shocking reveal goes to... The Following, because of course Joe Carroll isn't dead!
This week's recommendation: The Vampire Diaries (Thursday at 8/7c on The CW) It's the 100th episode, and the kids are playing a drinking game that commemorates all of Katherine's misdeeds. Have tissues — and a lot of bourbon — handy.
