Mega Buzz: Modern Family's Halloween, Hawaii Five-0's Ex and The Event

Blair Underwood, Sofia Vergara, Scott Caan

Every week, senior editors Mickey O'Connor and Adam Bryant satisfy your need for TV scoop. Please send all questions to mega_scoop@tvguide.com.

I love Halloween episodes! Tell me about Modern Family's. — Denis
MICKEY:
It'll focus on a horror of another sort: Gloria's accent! "She tries to fix her accent, but of course that doesn't happen," Sofia Vergara tells us. Ariel Winter, who plays Gloria's brainy step-granddaughter Alex, adds: "Gloria takes on some new weird way of speaking." Since "Ay, Manny!" is already my favorite non sequitur exclamation, I can't wait to see what rich verbal stylings Mrs. Delgado-Pritchett will serve up next.

Can you give me some scoop about Danno on Hawaii Five-0? — Nikki
ADAM: Tired of his ex-wife's angry phone calls? Get ready to... read more

Mega Buzz: A Grey's Competition, A Glee Return and Love on CSI: Miami

Sara Ramirez (Grey's Anatomy), Jessalyn Gilsig (Glee), David Caruso (CSI: Miami)

Every week, senior editors Mickey O'Connor and Adam Bryant satisfy your need for TV scoop. Please send all questions to mega_scoop@tvguide.com.

Any scoop about Callie and Arizona on Grey's Anatomy? — Marija
ADAM: When the Chief offers $1 million to the department of the hospital that best demonstrates need, Callie's and Arizona's feelings for one another do not put a damper on their competitive spirit. "Callie turns into a very competitive person and actually starts running around trying to intimidate everyone," Sara Ramirez says. "[She] does this hilarious passive-aggressive thing that was fun to play. She's trying to psych everybody out."

I was surprised to see Terri on Glee. She's been MIA for so long ... yet she's a series regular (or at least recurring)?  Why is Mike Chang not a regular?  He appears on the show more than Terri does! Christine
MICKEY:
These designations are complicated and take into account the plan for the entire season. So while Mike's fling with Tina is at the fore now, I'm hearing that Terri will play a much larger role in later episodes. As she made clear in the Britney episode, she's not giving up on Will, and her presence will be similarly menacing when she returns... read more

Mega Buzz: A Bones Murder, The Event's Lies and a New CSI Affair

Emily Deschanel, George Eads, Laura Innes

Every week, senior editors Mickey O'Connor and Adam Bryant satisfy your need for TV scoop. Please send all questions to mega_scoop@tvguide.com.

What's this I hear about Brennan solving her own murder on Bones? — Maggie
ADAM:
Well, Brennan obviously isn't the corpse, but her resemblance to the victim is uncanny. Executive producer Stephen Nathan says the experience will be educational for Bones. "Brennan gets to look at herself objectively, which is something she's never really been able to do," he says. "She sees herself in a new light, and that obviously will change her character to a certain extent."

So many answers on The Event this week! I can't help but think they're pulling a fast one on us. Have any scoop? — Martin
MICKEY:
Go with your gut. We'll soon find out that at least one of the most fundamental parts of The Event's narrative is... read more

Mega Buzz: A Criminal Exit, the House Romance and Jane's Mentalist Breakdown

Criminal Minds, The Mentalist, House

Every week, senior editors Mickey O'Connor and Adam Bryant satisfy your need for TV scoop. Please send all questions to mega_scoop@tvguide.com.

Can you give me any new information about how and why J.J. leaves Criminal Minds? — Renee
ADAM:
Although her exit is abrupt, it sounds like J.J. is on to bigger and better. "We've always intimated that J.J.'s character has connections outside of our world — other more powerful elements in the government," executive producer Simon Mirren tells us. "Those powers that she's connected with come back into her life. So basically, what we're saying is, our loss is going to be someone else's gain."

How will House and Cuddy's co-workers respond to their newfound love? — Mary
MICKEY: "
Some of them think it's great," says House executive producer Katie Jacobs. "Others think, 'Oh my God, this... read more

Mega Buzz: Fringe's Body Double, NCIS: LA's Mystery and House's Budding Romance

Anna Torv, Hugh Laurie, Chris O'Donnell

Every week, senior editors Mickey O'Connor and Adam Bryant satisfy your need for TV scoop. Please send all questions to mega_scoop@tvguide.com.

How is Nolivia different than Olivia on Fringe? — Ken
MICKEY:
The season premiere, titled simply "Olivia," addresses that question in an unexpected way. You see, not only has Olivia been kidnapped and imprisoned "over there," but her captors are trying to forcibly convince her that she is Nolivia. They start with her marksmanskip skills.

Will Callen get some answers about who's been following him in the NCIS: Los Angeles premiere? — Maggie
ADAM:
Yeah, I'd like that answer as well, but executive producer Shane Brennan says that solving that riddle would give away... read more

Nina Dobrev, Pauley Perrette, Marcia Cross

Every week, senior editors Mickey O'Connor and Adam Bryant satisfy your need for TV scoop. Please send all questions to mega_scoop@tvguide.com.

Vampire Diaries scoop, please! — Micah
MICKEY:
We'll learn pretty quickly how Jeremy and Caroline fare in their stare-downs with the Grim Reaper, but the answers won't be simple... or permanent. Also: The premiere (Thursday, 8/7c, CW) features a devastating scene between Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder. I'll leave it up to you to guess which character Dobrev is playing in it.

Will there be any friction between Abby and Gibbs in the new season of NCIS? — Melanie
ADAM:
While there still may be some fallout from Abby's discovery of Gibbs' murderous past, executive producer Shane Brennan doesn't think the secret will... read more

Mega Buzz: Another Glee Triangle, the Grey's Wedding and Gossip Girl in Paris

Lea Michele, Ellen Pompeo, Leighton Meester

Every week, senior editors Mickey O'Connor and Adam Bryant satisfy your need for TV scoop. Please send all questions to mega_scoop@tvguide.com.

Who's zooming who when Glee comes back? — Cathleen
MICKEY:
Finn is all about Rachel in Season 2, according to Lea Michele. "They're very much in love," she tells us, and, brace yourself, kind of into PDA. On the other hand, Jenna Ushkowitz hints at an upcoming romantic tangle for Artie and Tina. "Artie didn't give her what she wanted, so there's a love triangle," she tells us. "She's going to make Artie work for it." Who's the other lucky guy? Two words: Other Asian.

So excited about the Grey's Anatomy wedding. How will the other docs react? — Abby
ADAM:
Well, Meredith isn't exactly... read more

Chyler Leigh (Grey's Anatomy), Paul Wesley (Vampire Diaries), Laurence Fishburne (CSI)

Every week, senior editors Mickey O'Connor and Adam Bryant satisfy your need for TV scoop. Please send all questions to mega_scoop@tvguide.com.

Any more hints about the couple getting married on Grey's Anatomy? — Janelle
ADAM:
You'll find out soon enough. In the meantime, the second episode of the season will feature a near-proposal involving another fan-favorite couple (one half of which may or may not be pictured above). Before you reach for your Kleenex, though, ask yourself: Does this guy really want to get married?

Stefan seemed different in the Vampire Diaries finale. Where is he heading? — Katherine
MICKEY:
Interestingly, it's Katherine's arrival that awakens something in Stefan... read more

Mega Buzz: Bones' TV Gig, The Good Wife's Triangle and Criminal Minds' Hostages

Emily Deschanel, Julianna Margulies, A.J. Cook

Every week, senior editors Mickey O'Connor and Adam Bryant satisfy your need for TV scoop. Please send all questions to mega_scoop@tvguide.com.

Got any more scoop on Bones' new season? — Andrea
ADAM: We hear the show is looking to add a Bill Nye the Science Guy type to woo Brennan... to appear as a guest on his popular children's TV show. Bones brushes off the request because she doesn't see him as a serious scientist. But when he persists, Brennan makes him a deal: She'll do his show if he can help her solve a murder.

I can't wait for the The Good Wife to come back. Do you know who Alicia picks? — Deborah
MICKEY: Season 2 picks up right where Season 1 left off, with Alicia deciding between standing by her man and answering that fateful phone call. She doesn't... read more

Mega Buzz: Cristina's Grey's Breakdown, Mitchell's Hidden Past, and CSI: NY's New Face

Sandra Oh, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Sela Ward

Every week, senior editors Mickey O'Connor and Adam Bryant satisfy your need for TV scoop. Please send all questions to mega_scoop@tvguide.com.

What's Cristina up to when Grey's Anatomy returns? — Jenni
ADAM: She won't be great. While Cristina is usually the rock the other docs lean on, her reaction to the traumatic season finale rampage takes longer to sort out than some of the other surgeons. In fact, when she is finally cleared to go back into surgery, an accident in the OR freaks her out so much that she collapses into a sobbing mess on the floor.

Can we get some more Modern Family scoop? — Rusty
MICKEY: If you were as tickled as we were to discover that Mitchell and Claire were once an figure-skating duo named Fire and Ice, you're going to love the next nugget... read more
