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 can you tell me about the Bones honeymoon episode? — Kristy
ADAM: As we previously teased, the getaway won't be all romance. "They're going to get bored just hanging around having sex and going to the beach," Emily Deschanel jokes about the pair getting swept up into a murder investigation. But the real reason the vacation is derailed is Brennan's competitive nature. "We discover a set of remains that Brennan does not have faith the coroner there will be able to solve," Deschanel says. "There's a bit of a rivalry with the medical examiner." And why does Booth get sucked in? "Brennan's books are very popular in Buenos Aires, so Agent Andy, who is the character based on Booth in her books is a real hero there," Deschanel teases. Guess he can't let down his fans!
Will Hook tell Emma that Neal is alive on Once Upon a Time? — Cherish
NATALIE: You'll find out his decision very soon! "It's a hard one for him because he does feel something for Emma," Colin O'Donoghue teases. "Especially because he had that relationship with Baelfire, he's definitely caught between a rock and a hard place. Hook is a pirate, after all, and he's been so selfish for so long that you would understand his character wanting to keep something like that to himself, but this season he wants to change and he's trying to be a better person." You can't blame him: He's hooked on Emma! (I know; that was terrible.)
The Good Wife was so good this week! Is Will going to find out the real reason why Alicia left Lockhart/Gardner? —Whitney
ADAM: Oh, you mean that Alicia still has feelings for Will? Yes — and it will happen soon, according to executive producer Robert King. "Before [Alicia] gets on the elevator, she said it wasn't personal. [Will] said, 'I don't give a damn,'" King tells us. "The question is, even if he does find out, does he give a damn? It's not enough to get the information. [What's] also important [is], how do you act upon it?"
Is there anything you can tease about the event coming in Grey's Anatomy's fall finale? — Joanie
NATALIE: Shondaland is keeping the event under lock and key, but I
coerced convinced Jessica Capshaw to give me some scoop. "It will please some and it will not please others," Capshaw says. "Arizona will have some part in it. It's going to be dramatic." We don't know about you, but we're really hoping that she doesn't mean this.
How I Met Your Mother scoop, please! — Daniel
ADAM: Remember Ted's mother's new hubby Clint? We'll see him again on Monday's episode when Marshall and Daphne take a pit stop at Ted's mother's house in Ohio on their road trip to New York. Speaking of Monday's episode, The Mother makes her long-awaited return, and the final minutes are not to be missed. Trust us.
What info do you have on The Walking Dead spin-off? —Tom
NATALIE: It will be set in an entirely different location. "Georgia has become a character in itself on The Walking Dead that is very unique and very visually interesting, so we would want to find a new location that has similar appeal so it can be its own character in the spin-off," executive producer Robert Kirkman says, adding that they haven't decided on the timeline yet. "It can be minute one [of the outbreak]; it can be it can be the next-to-last minute," he adds. "We're very excited about being able to go anywhere we want to go as a starting point." Anyone else vote for minute one in Los Angeles?
Julia broke my heart when she was crying to her dad about Joel on Parenthood! Are they going to be able to make it through this rough patch? — Selena
ADAM: Unfortunately, it looks like things are going to get worse before they get better. In fact, I hear Joel will eventually move out of the house as part of a trial separation. Even more heartbreaking, when the couple consults a child psychologist about how to tell their kids about the split, it's clear that Julia is more much optimistic about reconciling than Joel is. So, um, when does the "better" start, exactly?
Tyler is finally back on The Vampire Diaries! Please tell me he and Caroline will stay together. — Becca
NATALIE: Well, the good news is that Caroline and Tyler don't waste a second in making up for lost time — especially in bed. But all good things must come to an end, and unfortunately for these two, that end will happen sooner rather than later.
Any scoop on Nashville? — Janice
ADAM: It's certainly unfortunate timing that Rayna asked her dad to buy her out of her recording contract just as his lucrative assets were frozen by the Feds. But that doesn't necessarily mean that she will come to his defense during the investigation — especially if Rayna ever learns about Lamar's suspected involvement in her mother's death. "It would be heartbreaking for Rayna to realize there might be any link [between] her father and her mother's death," Connie Britton says. "But I also think there might be a part of Rayna that thinks to herself, 'Well, I always knew he was a bad guy.'" Lamar might want to get used to wearing orange.
When will ever see a Klaroline crossover on The Originals? — Lisa, via Twitter
NATALIE: Not yet! Although Klaus made his feelings for Caroline well known, he's a little busy developing some feelings for another blonde — Cami (Leah Pipes). Danielle Pineda, who plays Sophie, recently shared why she thinks viewers should keep their eye on Cami and Klaus. "The story line that I really love is the one between Cami and Klaus because clearly there's an attraction there, and he's strangely so drawn to her. But that relationship is a lot deeper than people realize and where that story is heading is really cool."
What can you tell me about Danny's brother on The Mindy Project? — Kristen
ADAM: It doesn't sound like a particularly happy family reunion. "Danny and his younger brother have a bit of a falling-out," Ed Weeks tells us. Fortunately, Weeks' Jeremy may be able to smooth things out. "Jeremy steps in and puts Danny's point of view across and defends him," Weeks says. "He says how close they are and how Danny's a great guy. They have a little story between them which is quite sweet and touching actually." Bromance alert!
Do you have any scoop on Parks and Recreation? — Mitch
NATALIE: Get ready for the sequel to "Requiem for a Tuesday"... sort of. I hear that Ben will create the nerdiest and most complicated board game in history. Think Settlers of Catan meets Dungeons and Dragons, which is exactly why Leslie will have about the same reaction to the game as Ben did to his Tuesday creation.
Natalie's Mega Rave: Arrow overloaded fanboys with more DC Comics mentions than we could count, including Oliver being called the Arrow for the first time. But when it comes to the geekdom, Howard's love song on The Big Bang Theory was hands down the best moment on TV last week.
Adam's Mini Rant: This? Ditto.
