Bones, Desperate Housewives, Castle

Every week, senior editors Mickey O'Connor and Adam Bryant satisfy your need for TV scoop. Please send all questions to mega_scoop@tvguide.com.

When is Brennan finally going to wake up and see what she's missing with Booth on Bones? — Sara
ADAM:
Sooner than you think. In the midseason finale, Brennan investigates the murder of a workaholic, and Bones quickly draws parallels to her own life. "She's forced to face feelings that she's never had to deal with before," executive producer Stephen Nathan says. "She confronts the fact that this woman was running her whole life from feeling anything and she has to confront whether she's going to run her whole life from feeling anything. It butts right up against her relationship with Booth and the past five years of history."

I'm so excited about Episode 10 of Desperate Housewives. Please give me some hints about it. — Dean
MICKEY:
TNT may have people buzzing about Dallas again, but it's Desperate Housewives that will pay homage to the classic soap by asking: read more

What's the deal with McGarrett's sister on Hawaii Five-0? — Jen
ADAM:
Mary's presence will be explained in an upcoming episode in which she's kidnapped. McGarrett and Danno's investigation will reveal that her disappearance is connected to the murder of McGarrett's mother years before. The lead suspect: a businessman with significant ties to the Japanese mob who's also a close friend — and major campaign contributor — to the governor.

Mega Buzz: Housewives' Mystery Bride, Dexter's Accident and Vampire's New Blood

Mark Moses, Michael C. Hall, Ian Somerhalder

Every week, senior editors Mickey O'Connor and Adam Bryant satisfy your need for TV scoop. Please send all questions to mega_scoop@tvguide.com.

What's up with Paul's creepy wife on Desperate Housewives? — Cassidy
MICKEY: It's clear after Sunday's episode that Beth's mom really wants her to remain married to Paul. (Why is another question.) She even ordered her daughter to sleep with him, which is kind of creepy. Once she does, though, we'll get a very different perspective on the self-proclaimed virgin.

Dexter is getting good. Can you tease what's ahead? — Alex
ADAM:
Now that Lumen's abductors know she's still alive, the guilty parties will look to destroy the evidence of their crimes — namely those barrels of bodies in the swamp. That task is made slightly more difficult when... read more

Mega Buzz: NCIS' Daddy Danger, House's New Doc and Chuck's Run-In with 007

Cote de Pablo (NCIS), Hugh Laurie (House), and Zachary Levi (Chuck)

Every week, senior editors Mickey O'Connor and Adam Bryant satisfy your need for TV scoop. Please send all questions to mega_scoop@tvguide.com.

Have you heard anything about Ziva's storyline on NCIS' November sweeps episodes? — Carly
ADAM: A special security team will be tasked with protecting Ziva's father (Michael Nouri) when he attends an NCIS conference. Also at the conference: former NCIS agent Riley McCallister, whose troubled past has given him a bit of a hero complex. It's probably no accident that McCallister is played by Michael O'Neill, who learned a lot about gunplay as a Secret Service agent on The West Wing and as the gunman who shot the hell out of Seattle Grace in last year's Grey's Anatomy finale.

Who does Amber Tamblyn play on House? — Peter
MICKEY:
House describes her as the "the love child of Einstein and Mary Poppins." The brainiac's bleeding-heart principles of course irk the cranky doc. So he fires her — several times.... read more

Mega Buzz: Grey's Bieber Connection, an Office Hunk, and the Bones Sniper

David Boreanaz (Bones), Jenna Fischer (The Office), Justin Chambers (Grey's Anatomy)

Every week, senior editors Mickey O'Connor and Adam Bryant satisfy your need for TV scoop. Please send all questions to mega_scoop@tvguide.com.

Any news about what's coming up for Alex on Grey's Anatomy? — Emma
ADAM:
He'll have a blink-and-you'll-miss-it moment of flirtation with Lexie in the Oct. 28 episode, but his primary focus will be on a young girl who needs her trachea replaced. And though Alex maintains his stint in pediatrics has nothing to do with him being a softie for the kids, you can judge for yourself when he sings a few bars of a Justin Bieber tune to calm his patient while she's getting an MRI.

I heard that the guy from Justified was going to be on The Office. What's that all about? —Carl
MICKEY:
Show some respect, Carl! The man's name is Timothy Olyphant, and he'll play Danny on The Office. Danny's a really successful, kinda hot salesman who works for a Dunder Mifflin competitor... read more

Mega Buzz: Modern Family's Halloween, Hawaii Five-0's Ex and The Event

Blair Underwood, Sofia Vergara, Scott Caan

Every week, senior editors Mickey O'Connor and Adam Bryant satisfy your need for TV scoop. Please send all questions to mega_scoop@tvguide.com.

I love Halloween episodes! Tell me about Modern Family's. — Denis
MICKEY:
It'll focus on a horror of another sort: Gloria's accent! "She tries to fix her accent, but of course that doesn't happen," Sofia Vergara tells us. Ariel Winter, who plays Gloria's brainy step-granddaughter Alex, adds: "Gloria takes on some new weird way of speaking." Since "Ay, Manny!" is already my favorite non sequitur exclamation, I can't wait to see what rich verbal stylings Mrs. Delgado-Pritchett will serve up next.

Can you give me some scoop about Danno on Hawaii Five-0? — Nikki
ADAM: Tired of his ex-wife's angry phone calls? Get ready to... read more

Mega Buzz: A Grey's Competition, A Glee Return and Love on CSI: Miami

Sara Ramirez (Grey's Anatomy), Jessalyn Gilsig (Glee), David Caruso (CSI: Miami)

Every week, senior editors Mickey O'Connor and Adam Bryant satisfy your need for TV scoop. Please send all questions to mega_scoop@tvguide.com.

Any scoop about Callie and Arizona on Grey's Anatomy? — Marija
ADAM: When the Chief offers $1 million to the department of the hospital that best demonstrates need, Callie's and Arizona's feelings for one another do not put a damper on their competitive spirit. "Callie turns into a very competitive person and actually starts running around trying to intimidate everyone," Sara Ramirez says. "[She] does this hilarious passive-aggressive thing that was fun to play. She's trying to psych everybody out."

I was surprised to see Terri on Glee. She's been MIA for so long ... yet she's a series regular (or at least recurring)?  Why is Mike Chang not a regular?  He appears on the show more than Terri does! Christine
MICKEY:
These designations are complicated and take into account the plan for the entire season. So while Mike's fling with Tina is at the fore now, I'm hearing that Terri will play a much larger role in later episodes. As she made clear in the Britney episode, she's not giving up on Will, and her presence will be similarly menacing when she returns... read more

Mega Buzz: A Bones Murder, The Event's Lies and a New CSI Affair

Emily Deschanel, George Eads, Laura Innes

Every week, senior editors Mickey O'Connor and Adam Bryant satisfy your need for TV scoop. Please send all questions to mega_scoop@tvguide.com.

What's this I hear about Brennan solving her own murder on Bones? — Maggie
ADAM:
Well, Brennan obviously isn't the corpse, but her resemblance to the victim is uncanny. Executive producer Stephen Nathan says the experience will be educational for Bones. "Brennan gets to look at herself objectively, which is something she's never really been able to do," he says. "She sees herself in a new light, and that obviously will change her character to a certain extent."

So many answers on The Event this week! I can't help but think they're pulling a fast one on us. Have any scoop? — Martin
MICKEY:
Go with your gut. We'll soon find out that at least one of the most fundamental parts of The Event's narrative is... read more

Mega Buzz: A Criminal Exit, the House Romance and Jane's Mentalist Breakdown

Criminal Minds, The Mentalist, House

Every week, senior editors Mickey O'Connor and Adam Bryant satisfy your need for TV scoop. Please send all questions to mega_scoop@tvguide.com.

Can you give me any new information about how and why J.J. leaves Criminal Minds? — Renee
ADAM:
Although her exit is abrupt, it sounds like J.J. is on to bigger and better. "We've always intimated that J.J.'s character has connections outside of our world — other more powerful elements in the government," executive producer Simon Mirren tells us. "Those powers that she's connected with come back into her life. So basically, what we're saying is, our loss is going to be someone else's gain."

How will House and Cuddy's co-workers respond to their newfound love? — Mary
MICKEY: "
Some of them think it's great," says House executive producer Katie Jacobs. "Others think, 'Oh my God, this... read more

Mega Buzz: Fringe's Body Double, NCIS: LA's Mystery and House's Budding Romance

Anna Torv, Hugh Laurie, Chris O'Donnell

Every week, senior editors Mickey O'Connor and Adam Bryant satisfy your need for TV scoop. Please send all questions to mega_scoop@tvguide.com.

How is Nolivia different than Olivia on Fringe? — Ken
MICKEY:
The season premiere, titled simply "Olivia," addresses that question in an unexpected way. You see, not only has Olivia been kidnapped and imprisoned "over there," but her captors are trying to forcibly convince her that she is Nolivia. They start with her marksmanskip skills.

Will Callen get some answers about who's been following him in the NCIS: Los Angeles premiere? — Maggie
ADAM:
Yeah, I'd like that answer as well, but executive producer Shane Brennan says that solving that riddle would give away... read more
