Ask Matt: Scandal, Walking Dead, NCIS, Elementary, Brooklyn Nine-Nine

Question: I started watching Scandal from the start, when it was simply a problem-of-the-week plot mixed in with a little soap opera with Olivia and the President. They lost me a little bit last year when they temporarily dropped that element to completely focus on the soap opera element when the president was shot. With the addition of the B613 storyline (and possible new Harrison storyline), I feel the show has lost its focus. I was highly enjoying Lisa Kudrow's story and performance only to have the show dragged down by B613's machinations and apparent manipulation of Quinn. I get the fear the show could be the political Love Boat where the guest stars get all the meaty storylines, but I watch shows like Strike Back for my spy action and adventure. Have these writers learned nothing from the mistakes countless shows including Alias and recently Revenge have made with these over-the-top secret maniacal agencies? — Brian

NCIS Boss on Ziva's Exit, What's Next for Tony and the Team

Michael Weatherly, Cote de Pablo

For now, NCIS has bid farewell to Ziva David.

After Cote de Pablo abruptly decided to leave TV's most-watched drama this summer, producers had to find a way to tie up Ziva's narrative in short order. The result is Tuesday's episode, in which Ziva's will-they-won't-they partner-in-crime-solving Tony DiNozzo (Michael Weatherly) goes to Israel to find her. Once he tracks her down, he begs her to return to Washington with him, but to no avail. She leaves him on the runway with a tearful goodbye and a long kiss.

NCIS: What did you think of Ziva's goodbye?

How will Ziva's exit affect Tony, Gibbs (Mark Harmon) and the rest of the team? Is there a chance for her to return? And why was her exit arc so, well, Ziva-less? TVGuide.com turned to executive producer Gary Glasberg for answers.... read more

Walking Dead

Send questions to askmatt@tvguidemagazine.com and follow me on Twitter!

Question: I'm new to The Walking Dead this season, but I did catch up on all of Season 1 with the marathon presentation before the Season 2 premiere. I mostly like it and I know we're supposed to suspend disbelief, especially when watching a show about zombies. However, I do think they try to make it seem "real" plot-wise, and I especially like the explanation provided during the Season 1 finale where only the brain stem comes back to life which would account for the mobility and other "mindless" behavior. However, it also occurs to me that these are supposed to be smart people caught up in this fantastic scenario from hell. So why don't they just make it to a marina and procure a nice big boat and hang out on a lake somewhere? The way these zombies move, it's clear they can't swim or otherwise follow, and they could just cruise around and make the occasional raid to get gas and hunt, not to mention just fish for sustenance. I know ...

VIDEO: Diane Neal Returning to NCIS; Will Borin and Gibbs Get Together?

Mark Harmon and Diane Neal

Diane Neal realized just how avid NCIS fans are soon after her initial appearance on the show.

"After I did that first episode, I'd be walking down the street and people would [say], 'What's going on with Tiva?' and I was like, 'Why is everyone talking about a pair of sandals?'" she says. Neal soon learned that "Tiva" is the shipper name for fans who want to see a Tony DiNozzo-Ziva David coupling.

Mega Buzz: Thirteen's House Return, Glee's Finn and Rachel and CSI: NY's Finale

Olivia Wilde, Lea Michele, Sela Ward

Every week, editors Adam Bryant and Natalie Abrams satisfy your need for TV scoop. Please send all questions to mega_scoop@tvguide.com.

What can you tell me about House's big 150th episode? — Trisha
ADAM:
The episode, perhaps the best of the season, finally reveals that Thirteen (the returning Olivia Wilde) ended up in prison. It's a shocking story, so we won't give it away, but we will say that she was convicted of one thing, but actually did something some might consider worse. Mitigating factor: She was acting in the best interest of someone very close to her, which moves House so much that he makes an incredible promise that proves that Dr. Crankypants may have a heart after all.

Is there hope for Rachel and Finn on Glee? — Cheryl
ADAM:
"There is [hope], absolutely," Cory Monteith tells us. "That's a very important, very... read more
