Bones Season 7: Can a Baby Break the Moonlighting Curse?

David Boreanaz, Emily Deschanel

Ever since the demise of Moonlighting, many television writers have had one great fear: Once their show's two romantic leads sleep together, the show will lose its tension and become lifeless.

Fall Preview: Get scoop on your favorite returning shows

But Bones creator Hart Hanson — who faces that challenge as the show's seventh season premieres with Dr. Temperance Brennan (Emily Deschanel) six months pregnant with the child of her former will-they-won't-they partner Seeley Booth (David Boreanaz) — has found the opposite to be true.

"I feel like it re-energized the series," Hanson tells TVGuide.com... read more

Mega Buzz: Bones' New Baddie, a Revenge Death and Miami Romance

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

So excited for Bones to come back! What can you tell me about this season's new villain? — Brittany
ADAM:
Creator Hart Hanson tells us that if The Gravedigger was the "evil" version of Brennan and Jacob Broadsky was the "evil" version of Booth, then Christopher Pellant, the show's tech-savvy new killer, is the "evil" version of... Booth and Brennan's baby!? "It's too creepy to say that it's like, 'What if Booth and Brennan's baby grew up to be a horrible serial killer?'" Hanson says with a laugh. "But thematically, they have to deal with two things this year that are a combination of the two of them. One's the baby, and the other is this big baddie."

I really don't want Daniel to die on Revenge. At least tell me who his killer is. — Melissa
NATALIE:
Let's put together some facts: Executive producer Mike Kelley has previously said that the second half of the season will show the trial of Daniel's murderer, so yeah, it looks like he's going die. Now, the show is currently looking for an actor to play a high-powered attorney who will defend... read more

Networks Ponder The Future of Broadcast Drama

Revenge

Mega Buzz: A Cuddy Return on House? Plus: Glee Lovers and a CSI Exit

Lisa Edeslstein, Lea Michele, Marg Helgenberger

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

How will House deal with Cuddy's absence? Is there any chance Lisa Edelstein will come back to shoot a proper ending for her character? — Beth
ADAM:
Though the show's one-year time jump will skip Cuddy's exit from Princeton-Plainsboro, creator David Shore says the show won't overlook it altogether. "There's going to be an acknowledgement, but it's not going to be a big story about her because unfortunately we don't have [Lisa]," he says. Does Shore think he will ever get to write Cuddy a proper send-off? "Down the road, that might be more appropriate. It didn't seem right now," he says. "Given that she was gone, we decided it was better to not just have her come back to leave again." 

Will Finn and Rachel be happy when Glee returns? — Joshua
NATALIE:
Yes! "You pick up with them as a couple," Lea Michele tells us... read more

Could Bones sixth season finale turn into a baby boom?

While we know for sure that Thursday's finale (9/8c, Fox) will feature the birth of Angela and Hodgins' baby, a certain level of mystery sill revolves around how Emily Deschanel's real-life pregnancy may impact the show.

I am dying to know what happens in the NCIS finale. — Eric
ADAM: 
Expect even more bloodshed. But the Port-to-Port Killer case doesn't completely rule the hour. "The finale really hits a lot of the Vance-Gibbs tension," executive producer Gary Glasberg says. "It's going to provide a lot of answers to what Vance has been dealing with all season. Gibbs is going to become privy to a lot of it... and it's going to bring his relationship with Vance to another level." Does that signal an administrative shakeup? "There are definite changes that affect NCIS," Glasberg says. "The team is going to have to work together in a way they've never had to work together before next season."

Can you tell us anything about the Smallville finale? — Brad

Here's what we can tell you: As Darkseid's Apokolips speeds toward Earth, Clark and Lois will attempt to... read more
