Mega Buzz: Breaking Bad's Cancer, a Scandal Breakup and the NCIS Goodbye

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 to @adam_bryant or @NatalieAbrams.

Walt looks pretty sickly in the Breaking Bad flash-forward. Will we get more of those scenes in the final episodes? — Tom
ADAM: Probably not many. "Look to last year for the shape of [the season]," creator Vince Gilligan says. (Season 5 opened with a flash-forward, but didn't return to it again until Sunday's premiere.) However, as noted by Walt's return to chemotherapy, his health is of supreme interest to Gilligan & Co. "I don't know if lung cancer is ever cured," Gilligan says coyly. "It's a very insidious thing and you never know when it's going to rear its ugly head. We always kept that in mind and we want to pay off that initial story engine."

Will Abby and David get back together on Scandal this season? — Jones 
NATALIE: Things are definitely not over between Abby and David... read more

Premise: David E. Kelley's surreal slice of small-town Wisconsin life centered on the Brock family: the town's sheriff, his physician wife and their three kids. There was some conventional murder and mayhem, along with dark humor. The occasionally bizarre story lines (like a `serial bather' sneaking into homes) were often juxtaposed with ruminations on a variety of social issues (among them, bigamy and euthanasia). While never much of a ratings hit, this was a critical darling, winning 14 Emmys.
