Adam Rodriguez, Michael C. Hall, Daniel Dae Kim

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

What is the deal with Delko and Calleigh on CSI: Miami? What's the status of their relationship? — Tanesha
ADAM: For the immediate future, they will be more friends than lovers.

Will it spike again? Probably, but they're taking a little break from the intensity."

Any scoop on Dexter? — Scott
NATALIE: In the season's penultimate episode, there are not one, but two deaths! And not one, but two kidnappings!... read more
