Can you give us any more information about Bartholomew on Supernatural? —Gina
ADAM: Let's just say that he might pose a few more problems for the Winchester boys than previous angel Naomi did. "Bartholomew set out to be a headhunter to kind of rule the roost, whereas Naomi was more in the business of trying to preserve heaven and ruling that landscape," Jensen Ackles tells us. "With that comes [new] rules of the game." And those new rules are likely to more deadly. "Bartholomew is malicious in a way that Naomi wasn't," Misha Collins says. "She would engage in torture, but there's something more sinister about Bartholomew. He seems to me to be less sympathetic."
Any scoop on The Vampire Diaries? So many twists last week! —Tonya
NATALIE: Seriously. For one, Katherine getting her blood drained won't come without consequences...
Strong female characters are rarely allowed to be nuanced on TV. They don't get to be brilliant, vain or funny. They get to be strong (and maybe sexy, if they're lucky). They kick a--, overcome obstacles and rarely display any signs of feminine vulnerability. Often times, their strength is framed as the result of some "issue," (SVU's Olivia Benson troubled childhood, Sonya Cross' Asperger's on The Bridge), as though the women are only strong because a catalyst forced them to be this way.
But Mindy Lahiri doesn't have issues (well, she has issues, but not in that sense). She's a strong, well-developed comedic antihero on par with Michael Scott. But many Mindy Project viewers didn't warm to Mindy as quickly as they took to the equally offensive Office boss. "I think that [Mindy] is very resilient and very confident and until you see her display kindness or show rapport with other people, it's hard for an audience just to decide they love her," Mindy Kaling tells TVGuide.com, recalling the initial reaction to the character.
Something tells us that the meat-loving Ron Swanson would not approve.

What can you tell me about the Bones honeymoon episode? — Kristy
ADAM: As we previously teased, the getaway won't be all romance. "They're going to get bored just hanging around having sex and going to the beach," Emily Deschanel jokes about the pair getting swept up into a murder investigation. But the real reason the vacation is derailed is Brennan's competitive nature. "We discover a set of remains that Brennan does not have faith the coroner there will be able to solve," Deschanel says. "There's a bit of a rivalry with the medical examiner." And why does Booth get sucked in? "Brennan's books are very popular in Buenos Aires, so Agent Andy, who is the character based on Booth in her books is a real hero there," Deschanel teases. Guess he can't let down his fans!
Will Hook tell Emma that Neal is alive on Once Upon a Time? — Cherish
NATALIE: You'll find out his decision very soon...
