Any Tony-Ziva NCIS scoop? — Rita
ADAM:
Executive producer Gary Glasberg says it was no accident that the fan-favorite couple ended last season in close quarters when the bomb went off at NCIS HQ. "We'll pick up with them in that elevator and, with the situation that they're in, there will be some conversations," Glasberg says. "Hopefully we'll scratch our way a little bit deeper into the relationship." What's that? Sorry, I couldn't hear you over this awesome Aerosmith song!

Will The Vampire Diaries kids actually graduate and leave Mystic Falls this year? — Jess

Mega Buzz: New Good Wife Faces, a True Blood Romance and a Mad Men Haunting

Archie Panjabi, Denis O'Hare, Vincent Kartheiser

How soon will we meet Kalinda's husband next season on The Good Wife? — Beth
ADAM:
We're hearing that he will be in the season premiere and at least five additional episodes next season. But he won't be the only new face. Look for a calculating, self-righteous bankruptcy trustee who's brought in to fix the firm's financial woes. We hear he butts heads with just about everyone. Perhaps that's because he's cutting costs...and — gulp! — slashing jobs?

I can't wait to see Russell Edgington again on True Blood. Got any scoop on his return? — Mark

Mega Buzz: Who's Coming Out on True Blood? Plus: Big Changes on NCIS, The Closer

Rutina Wesley, David McCallum, Kyra Sedgwick

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

I can't wait for True Blood to come back. Is Tara dead? Please say yes. I am so over her. — Denny
NATALIE: We literally can't answer this question, lest Alan Ball has us all staked. But we can tell you that the title of the season premiere is "Turn! Turn! Turn!" which is a song of Biblical extraction about profound change, like, say, dying, becoming a vampire or declaring your true sexuality. All three of these things will happen during this hour, but the question is: To whom? (Answer: Not all to the same person.)

Is NCIS getting new digs next year? — Jennifer, via Twitter
ADAM:
Not really, but... read more

Mega Buzz: Revenge's Bloody Finale, SVU's Dead Hooker and True Blood's New War

Emily VanCamp, Mariska Hargitay, Anna Paquin

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

Is there anything you can tell us about the Revenge finale? — Ginny
NATALIE:
Can you hear me now? No? That's basically the problem in the season finale. "Dropped calls!" Connor Paolo teases. "The importance of picking up the phone when people call!" Adds Gabriel Mann: "Sometimes it might be real important!" What does it all mean? What's in Nolan's immediate future? "A lot of blood," Mann says. Gulp!

Any clues about SVU's big cliff-hanger? — Devon

Mega Buzz: Another House Exit, Vampire Diaries' Accident, and NCIS' Finale

House, Vampire Diaries, NCIS

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

Is Chase really gone for good on House? — Christine
ADAM:
Not exactly. While he has definitely resigned, executive producer David Shore confirms that Chase is scheduled to appear in the series finale. But more surprisingly, one of his colleagues might follow him out the door. In Monday's penultimate episode, another doctor is readying a career life raft in case House implodes under the strain of Wilson's increasingly grim diagnosis.

I can't believe The Vampire Diaries finale is Thursday! What will we learn from the flashback to Elena's parents' accident? — Rachel

Mega Buzz: Another Castle Cliff-Hanger, Fringe's Finale and a Prentiss Return?

Stana Katic, Castle; Joshua Jackson, Fringe; Paget Brewster, Criminal Minds

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

Does Castle's finale have a cliff-hanger like last year's? I'm not sure I could handle that! — Jessica
ADAM:
Creator Andrew W. Marlowe hints that Beckett will be experiencing a lot of changes in the finale, and the domino effect of said changes leads to this season's climax. And while I'm pretty sure that no one's life will be hanging in the balance, Castle-Beckett fans will likely still be in for a long summer. Why? Marlowe says this finale doesn't lend itself to a large time jump between seasons. "The way we're ending this season, people will want to know what happens in the immediate aftermath," he teases.

Will the rest of the Fringe team regain their memories before the end of the season? — Larry

Mega Buzz: A House Death, a Grey's Disaster and a CSI Exit?

Hugh Laurie, House; Patrick Dempsey, Grey's Anatomy; Ted Danson, CSI

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

So is Wilson definitely going to die on House? — Amanda
ADAM:
Well, the promos for next week's episode don't paint a pretty picture, but let's try to stay positive. (His best friend is a pretty good doctor, after all!) I suspect that Wilson will stick around at least through the series finale. But it does raise the question: Can House exist without Wilson? "For better or for worse, they are bound together," Hugh Laurie says. "They share a way of looking at the world, and I think they need each other." But does that "need" portend a happy ending? "I think the audience will be happy, not because House has learned some life lessons — that's not what he's about," Laurie says. "I think people will be happy for him. The fact that he's still got a 'mud in your eye, to hell with you all' attitude, I sort of love." So let's keep the sackcloth and ashes under wraps for now, OK?

Please tell me you have more info on the big event in the Grey's Anatomy finale! — Sammy

Mega Buzz: New Love Interests on Mentalist and Dexter and an NCIS: LA Return

Simon Baker, The Mentalist; Michael C. Hall, Dexter; Chris O’Donnell, NCIS: LA

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

What else can you tell me about Patrick Jane's new love interest on The Mentalist? — Christine
ADAM:
Creator Bruno Heller wants to be clear about one thing: Loralei (Emmanuelle Chriqui) is no ordinary cocktail waitress, and as such viewers should take this relationship seriously. "It's certainly not a fling and it's not a spur-of-the-moment booty call or anything like that," Heller says. "She comes into Jane's life at a very, very low ebb. He's at a moment when he really needs a helping hand and a little ray of light, and she provides that."

Please tell me you have info on Dexter! — James
NATALIE:
Could Dexter be getting... read more

Mega Buzz: Why Is Castle Being a Brat? Plus: Legal Trouble on Private and SVU

Castle, Private Practice, Law & Order: SVU

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

I know Castle is trying to keep Castle and Beckett apart, but why is he acting like such a brat? — Liz
ADAM:
He's just being a man, creator Andrew W. Marlowe says. "Men in general usually don't confront their feelings," he says of Castle's reaction to learning that Beckett remembers Castle's declaration of love. "He's certainly not the type of person to go up to Beckett and say, 'Hey, you hurt me!' because that would be exposing himself. He's expressing his anger with Beckett, and whether he knows it or not, he's trying to punish her without really putting his cards on the table." But don't worry: Beckett will soon figure out what set Castle off, thanks to another revealing chat with her therapist.

Some Private Practice scoop, please!!! I'm dying! — Manuela
NATALIE:
Don't die! Private Practice returns next Tuesday! This scoop, however, may kill you: read more

Mega Buzz: Prentiss' Replacement, a Grey's Return to Form and a Vampire Reunion

Paget Brewster, Criminal Minds, Sandra Oh, Grey’s Anatomy and Nina Dobrev, The Vampire Diaries

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

Have you heard anything about how Criminal Minds' plans to replace Paget Brewster in Season 8? — Ashley
ADAM:
I was actually on set last week and asked executive producer Erica Messer that very question. The short answer: Don't look for it to happen right away. Messer says she'd like to mimic what the show did in Season 3 when Joe Mantegna replaced departing star Mandy Patinkin a few episodes into the season. "I feel like we come back in Season 8 without Prentiss, and we're functioning just fine," she says. "But there's a void. We need that extra body. But I don't know who that character is yet." Why don't you guys help her out in the comments below?

Any Cristina and Owen scoop for Grey's Anatomy would be great! — Lisa
