Every week, editors Adam Bryant and Natalie Abrams satisfy your need for TV scoop. Please send all questions to firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet them to @adam_bryant or @NatalieAbrams.
What's the scoop on Nashville? Is someone really going to die? — Janet
ADAM: It sure seems that way. But don't expect to know exactly who at the end of Wednesday's midseason finale. That's because the person displaying the tell-tale signs of impending TV death — including drastic, dangerous behavior — could be a bait-and-switch. In possibly related news, Juliette's attempt to profess her love for Avery will be suddenly cut short.
Do you have anything on Scandal's midseason finale? — Jason
NATALIE: Olivia & Co. will do everything in their power to track down the truth about Mama Pope. Naturally, Rowan will be one avenue for answers, but he'll be preoccupied by a very unexpected standoff where his words will cut someone deeper than that hole he threw Huck and Jake in.
Can you tell me who shoots Emily on Revenge? — Sam
NATALIE: Sure, it's... wait a minute! I almost fell for that. I will tell you that a familiar face returns for Emily and Daniel's wedding, and said person will not be the shooter. This special guest will also help bring the whole Grayson family — Victoria included — together on the big day, but he or she will also stumble upon a big secret!
What's coming up on Hawaii Five-0? — Blake
ADAM: Friday's very special episode reflects on one of America's greatest tragedies when McGarrett & Co. investigate the attempted murder of a Pearl Harbor veteran. As the team digs deeper, they unearth decades-old evidence of a horrific crime at an Oahu internment camp during WWII. Fortunately, McGarrett finds a happy ending when he shares a heartwarming connection with someone from his own past.
Is the Blue Fairy really dead on Once Upon a Time? — Jen
NATALIE: The good news: Executive producers Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis recently teased that shadows can be reattached to their hosts. The bad news: We hear the cast recently shot a funeral scene up in Vancouver.
Any scoop on The Vampire Diaries? — Mira
NATALIE: Two of these things are true and one is a lie. In the next batch of episodes... 1) There will be a major breakup; 2) A fan-favorite character will say goodbye for good and 3) Someone will pull a body switcheroo. Hit the comments with which number you think is the lie!
We've seen a lot of characters from Chicago PD on Chicago Fire, but which characters from Fire will appear on PD? — Tom
ADAM: All signs point to Severide, who might stumble into a romance with Det. Erin Lindsay (Sophia Bush) that would connect the shows. "There's an interesting chemistry between [them]," executive producer Matt Olmstead says. "They're kind of cut from the same cloth, so it's something that we're exploring."
Is this Meredith-Cristina fight going to end soon on Grey's Anatomy? — coolteacher31, via Twitter
NATALIE: Nope. In fact, it will spill over into April's wedding now that they (and Arizona) are serving as bridesmaids. "Cristina and Meredith are stuck in a few different rooms throughout the course of the episode because they have to be in the same space," Sarah Drew says, teasing that April will go full Bridezilla because of their bickering. "Obviously, there is so much tension and a lot of it really comes to a head during this episode. You'll see April have a 'Hello, this is my day' moment. 'I fired those people for you three?! This is supposed to be my day!'"
Will more people learn the truth about Oliver's identity on Arrow? — Deidre
NATALIE: "Over the course of the season, a couple more people will find out," executive producer Andrew Kreisberg teases. But Barry being let in on the secret without Oliver's knowledge will change the way he goes about things in the future. "We get to a point later in the season where we think that someone else should be told about my identity, but that has to be put to a vote because I lose my mind when I discover that [Barry] knows my identity," Stephen Amell tells me. "We let Team Arrow decide."
I am so excited for Suburgatory to come back! What can you tease about the new season? — Carmen
ADAM: Who's ready for a Suburgatory wedding?! But who could it be walking down the aisle? Carmen and Noah? Mr. Wolfe and Chef Alan? Or George and Dallas? We won't spill the happy couple's names, but we will rule out one person: Tessa. But she will still be involved with the happy day when she's called on to help plan the nuptials.
I can't wait for Psych to return for Season 8! Got any hints? — Cal
ADAM: Missing The Walking Dead this winter? You're in luck! Look for Psych to jump on the zombie bandwagon when the show does what James Roday calls a "kitchen-sink horror episode" that features nods to many of the scary-movie franchises the show has yet to cover. But don't expect newfangled World War Z-type monsters: Roday assures us that Shawn and Gus will be battling "throwback George Romero-style" brain-eaters.
Are we going to see Bugsy Siegel die on Mob City? — Richie
NATALIE: Historically speaking, Bugsy Siegel dies after he helped to found Las Vegas, so he should be OK, right? Wrong. We'll actually be seeing Sin City this week! "It's when the Flamingo is being built and Bugsy goes out there to convince two of Meyer Lansky's lawyers that Meyer and the mob back East needs to keep funding this project," Ed Burns teases. "But they see that this is a money suck and they're there issuing a warning to Bugsy. Of course Bugsy isn't the kind of guy that does well with warnings."
Natalie's Mini Rave: Dear The CW, your first 2014-2015 series order should be a no-brainer. Just make it happen in a Flash.
Adam's Mini Rant: Congrats to Jason and Amy on winning The Amazing Race, but did Amy really have to do the Roadblock for clueless Nicole again with a final-three spot on the line? As Marie says: It's a Race, not "a 'help your friend' TV show."
