Do you have any scoop on the Grey's Anatomy finale? — Sonya
We're already stocking up on tissues for Sandra Oh's sure-to-be-tearful farewell. But Yang's heartbreaking send-off won't be the episode's sole focus. Rather, I hear the doctors of Grey Sloan Memorial will be dealing with a number of victims injured during a possible act of terrorism. What's a Grey's Anatomy finale without a big dramatic event, amirite?

Since The Mentalist hasn't been renewed yet, will the writers finally get Jane and Lisbon together in case the show's canceled? — Jackie
Funny you should ask, Jackie. "It's... read more

Person of Interest: Is This Fusco's Moment?

Kevin Chapman, Jim Caviezel

Person of Interest fans were stunned in November when the CBS drama killed off original cast member Taraji P. Henson's Detective Carter. But no one took it harder than her castmates. 

"I really miss working with Taraji," Kevin Chapman, who plays Carter's partner Detective Lionel Fusco, tells TVGuide.com. "She was very gracious, and we just really connected. We had a lot of fun. We'd go to basketball games together and dinners. I really miss having her around."

Postmortem: Person of Interest Bosses, Taraji P. Henson Break Down Shocking Twist

Jim Caviezel and Taraji P. Henson

[WARNING: The following story contains major spoilers from Tuesday's episode of Person of Interest. Read at your own risk.]

The brain trust behind Person of Interest promised a hero would fall — it just wasn't exactly the hero some might have expected.

Although the promos for the CBS drama's three-part "Endgame" trilogy heavily suggested that Kevin Chapman's Fusco wouldn't make it out alive, Tuesday's episode pulled a switcheroo... read more

Do you know how next week's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. connects to Thor: The Dark World? — Dirk
NATALIE:
If you haven't yet seen Thor: The Dark World, you may want to put that on your to-do list this weekend or you might be a little lost during next week's episode. "The story centers around an Asgardian relic," Brett Dalton tells me. "As for how it affects the team ... I'm hoping it gives me Chris Hemsworth arms." Seconded.

Is it too soon to ask for scoop on The Following? Will Claire be back this season? — Jessica
ADAM:
Natalie Zea's role remains a bit of a question mark, especially given the Comic-Con teaser footage that suggests a grim fate for Claire. Another bad sign? read more

Person of Interest Bosses: The Battle with HR "Will Not Come Without Loss"

Kevin Chapman, Jim Caviezel

Is Person of Interest about to lose one of its team members?

The CBS drama sent fans into a frenzy last week when it released a teaser trailer to promote a three-episode arc that begins with Tuesday's episode "Endgame." The clip suggests the death of a one of the core cast members, with most of the evidence pointing to Kevin Chapman's Fusco. But there's got to be some kind of twist, right? ... read more

Ask Matt: Cancellations, Renewals (Sleepy Hollow), Breaking Bad, Person of Interest

Nicole Beharie, Tom Mison

Question: So we had the first cancellation of the season with Lucky 7 after two showings. There are no tears from me as I never watched it. My question is: On what planet did anyone ever perceive this show's premise to be interesting or sustainable? Out of the hundreds of pilots, it is sometimes hard to believe someone at ABC thought this was one of the best. What do you think is next? — Rob

Matt Roush: Next for ABC, or next in the long annals of "what were they thinking" pilots? (That sound you hear is ABC kicking itself for not keeping Body of Proof around as a back-up, because for the time being, Scandal repeats will be airing in place of the unlucky 7.) To be fair, Lucky was based on a more successful British series, The Syndicate, but something clearly got lost in translation. (Same thing must have happened regarding ABC's equally mediocre Betrayal, based on a Dutch series and adapted by the same exec producer, who's batting 0 for 2 right now.) Your point about the sustainability of a pilot's premise is a good one, and comes up frequently when analyzing the failure of shows as disparate as last season's Last Resort and (though it may be premature) this season's Hostages — more on that one later. But from the moment many of us saw clips of Lucky 7 at last spring's upfront presentation, it felt like nothing we could imagine almost anyone would want to see. And we were right.

Walt looks pretty sickly in the Breaking Bad flash-forward. Will we get more of those scenes in the final episodes? — Tom
ADAM: Probably not many. "Look to last year for the shape of [the season]," creator Vince Gilligan says. (Season 5 opened with a flash-forward, but didn't return to it again until Sunday's premiere.) However, as noted by Walt's return to chemotherapy, his health is of supreme interest to Gilligan & Co. "I don't know if lung cancer is ever cured," Gilligan says coyly. "It's a very insidious thing and you never know when it's going to rear its ugly head. We always kept that in mind and we want to pay off that initial story engine."

Will Abby and David get back together on Scandal this season? — Jones
