Do Anna and Elsa have a connection to any of our favorite Once Upon a Time characters? — Nathan  
You mean other than Elsa having been locked up in Rumple's vault all those years? It sure sounds like it! "Maybe there is an unlikely friendship that Charming had in his past that maybe literally changed the entire path of his life," Josh Dallas told me at Comic-Con when I asked the exact same question. Safe  money is on him being friends with Anna over Elsa, though.

What can you say is coming up for Lindsay and Severide this season on Chicago P.D. and Chicago Fire— Nina
A love triangle! Showrunner Matt Olmstead says that Severide will stay with Lindsay throughout Season 3, but he also says that sparks will continue to fly between Lindsay and her partner Halstead. "I'm sure it will be sticky again for Lindsey and Halstead," Jesse Lee Soffer says. "They obviously still have a connection. Who knows if they'll take that risk and if Voight will allow that to happen or if he'll end up killing somebody?" I know he's kidding, but let's not forget what happened to poor Jin in the season finale! RIP!

Anything on The Blacklist— Michelle 
While everyone has been focused on the mystery of Liz's father, Season 2 will also explore who Liz's mother was. "If the part about my dad wasn't true, what is the truth, if any, that I need to learn about my mom?" executive producer John Eisendrath says of Liz's mindset this year. In other news, there will be a small time jump when the show returns, but Berlin will still very much be in the picture as the main villain in the "first portion of the year," Eisendrath adds.

Scandal's Shonda Rhimes Reveals Harrison's Fate, Talks Season of Abby

Kerry Washington and Columbus Short

When Scandal returns, the ABC political fixer drama will waste no time resolving many of the jaw-dropping cliff-hangers that fans have been discussing all summer.

In the Season 3 finale, Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) inadvertently fulfilled her father Rowan's (Joe Morton) wishes by boarding a plane with Jake (Scott Foley), leaving behind Washington D.C. and Fitz (Tony Goldwyn). Little did she know, daddy dearest murdered Fitz and Mellie's (Bellamy Young) son in a bid to become Command of B613 again and insure that POTUS would stay in office.

Scandal: Who didn't survive the season finale?

The only person who figured it out was the one man who had a gun pointed at his head in the closing moments of the finale. And Harrison's fate is certainly up in the air now that Columbus Short will not be returning to the show. So, what does this mean for the Gladiators in Season 4?
