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?

Game of Thrones Power Shift: Joffrey Strikes, Melisandre Scores

Game Of Thrones, Jack Gleeson, Carice van Houten

"Power is power," the Queen Regent Cersei told a chastened Littlefinger in the long-awaited Game of Thrones Season 2 premiere.

It's a lesson that the Lannister lady has passed down to her son. In Sunday's episode, both Cersei and Joffrey flex their monarchy muscles among their courtiers, but now that Westeros is embroiled in a civil war among more than one self-styled king, it remains to be seen who actually wields the most influence. Who made a play for power? Who succeeded? Who failed? Who just embarrassed him/herself? TVGuide.com breaks down the power shifts in "The North Remembers":

Game of Thrones Season 2: The Men (and One Woman) Who Would Be King

Jack Gleeson, Emilia Clarke, Richard Madden

The Iron Throne may be made of swords, but that isn't a deterrent for the many people who want to sit upon it.

Following the death of King Robert Baratheon, Westeros has been thrown into turmoil. As the second season of Game of Thrones kicks off Sunday (9/8c, HBO), Robert's son Joffrey holds dominion in King's Landing, but not without rumblings from the surrounding Seven Kingdoms. Civil war has broken out, and while some men feel they have a better claim to the throne, others want supremacy over their own carved-out piece of turf.

Special Report: How Book-to-TV Adaptations Handle Spoilers

Andrew Lincoln

Producers of serialized dramas hate spoilers and famously put cast and crew on lockdown to keep juicy plot points under wraps. But how do you avoid spoilers when your hit show — like Pretty Little Liars, Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, The Vampire Diaries, Dexter, True Blood and The Secret Circle, all known for shocking twists — is based on a series of books? Your options: either mislead viewers, change up the story just a bit or take... read more

On the Set: Game of Thrones Roars Back for a Bloody Season 2

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Peter Dinklage and Kit Harington

It's late October and rain is pelting the windows of a small Belfast bar. Peter Dinklage is sharing a drink with his Game of Thrones costars Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Kit Harington. Dinklage could use the drink. He's just come from shooting an emotional scene for Episode 8 in which his character, clever imp Tyrion Lannister, bursts into his chamber calling out for the sequestered prostitute and love-of-his-life, Shae. He doesn't see her and the thought of her possible fate shakes him to the core. His eyes search the room. His voice quavers.

It's easy to see why Dinklage won an Emmy — one of many awards snagged by the HBO drama during its freshman year...

Ask Matt: Justified, The Killing, Hunger Games (on TV?), Smash, and More

Timothy Olyphant

Send questions to askmatt@tvguidemagazine.com and follow me on Twitter!

Question: I'm really surprised by the lack of comment (here and elsewhere) on this season of Justified. It had a lot to live up to after that near-perfect second season and (in my opinion) has been maintaining the standard extremely well. I haven't enjoyed TV-show dialogue this much since The West Wing went off the air. read more
