Do you have anything on The Mentalist's premiere episode you can share? — Shena, via Twitter
After their big kiss at the end of last season, Lisbon and Jane are fully immersed in their honeymoon period when the season begins. But when they're called back to work to investigate the murder of an undercover FBI agent, they have to figure out how (or if) to break the news of their relationship to their colleagues. Lisbon, for one, wants to keep the romance under wraps — which Jane is willing go along with. Or at least he is until Lisbon's ex Pike comes back in the picture.

How will Leslie and Ben be different when Parks and Recreation returns? — Eddie
Other than the obvious — aka being parents to three kids — and the ridiculous — "We're just inventing stupid 2017 technology," Amy Poehler jokes —  viewers should keep their eyes peeled for small, Easter egg-like nods to things that have changed.... read more

Leah Pipes, Yusuf Gatewood

The Originals' resident human has figured out how to get to Vincent, and she's wasting no time in manipulating him with her feminine wiles.

The Originals: Who's returning from Klaus' past as part of Esther's "diabolical plan"?

Just as Cami (Leah Pipes) was going to stab her "adviser" Vincent (Yusuf Gatewood), aka Finn, last week, she realized there was an even better way to uncover the Original brother's plan of attack: flirting with him! In the exclusive clip from Monday's episode below, the two meet for another session, during which Cami hints that she has feelings for him. How does Vincent react? Will he see through her?

The Originals: Who's Returning From Klaus' Past as Part of Esther's "Diabolical Plan"?

Joseph Morgan

The Originals has only just begun to uncover the first family's wealth of secrets.

On last week's episode, Esther (Sonja Sohn) took her son Elijah (Daniel Gillies) captive and forced him to remember the horrifying acts he had done as a vampire — namely killing his love Tatia (Nina Dobrev) — in order to further persuade him to undo his vampirism. But on Monday's episode (8/7c, CW)  it's Esther's turn to reveal all when viewers finally learn much more of her back story that led to her strong convictions today.

Now that Jake has been arrested, please tell me that Olivia will finally find out that Rowan was behind Jerry's death on Scandal. — Denise

Unfortunately, it doesn't sound like that reveal is coming any time soon. "You always think it can't go on any longer, but they twist it in a way you didn't even think of," star Brian Letscher, who plays Tom, teases of the (inevitable?) reveal. "Rowan is a master manipulator .... and the ripple effects of Tom [saying Jake ordered him to kill Jerry] affect a lot of people in ways he never imagined."

Got anything about the final season of The Newsroom? — Ashley

The season premiere is set around the events of the Boston Marathon bombing and, owing to ACN's screw-up with the Operation Genoa story last season, everyone is appropriately gun shy about reporting the "facts" of the story too quickly... read more

The Originals' Charles Michael Davis: Marcel Is Finally Finding His Voice

Charles Michael Davis

The Originals' second season may be all about the Original family, but Charles Michael Davis says Marcel is about to make some serious noise.

Although Marcel once ruled the city of New Orleans, the minute Klaus Mikaelson (Joseph Morgan) returned, he immediately took center stage as the most powerful supernatural figure in the Big Easy. Throughout Season 1, Marcel struggled to keep his city under control and by the end of the show's freshman run, he lost nearly all of the vampires, many of which were friends, fighting by his side. But two episodes in and Marcel is well on his way to rebuilding his army and he's not about to let any Originals get in his way.

Gina Rodriguez, Brett Dier

6 Spoilers for a "Darker" Originals Season 2

Phoebe Tonkin, Joseph Morgan

The Originals is about to put the "fun" in family dysfunction.

The CW series, which returns for its second season Monday, is setting the stage for a crazy reunion when Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and Elijah (Daniel Gillies) realize that their mother and father — and brother — have been resurrected back into their lives. For the brothers, confronting the years of pain and destruction the Original parents left in their wake comes at a time when the two, as well as Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin), have already hit despair, having lost the people — and their city — that mean most to them.

I am dying for some Walking Dead scoop. Got anything? — Matt 
This season certainly doesn't waste any time getting into the action! Look for a very bloody first episode that offers some quick answers about the people of Terminus. Remember when executive producer Robert Kirkman told us that Terminus leader Gareth was not the season's major villain? That doesn't mean he isn't sufficiently creepy!

The conversation between Richard and Maggie on last week's Grey's Anatomy was so upsetting. Is he ever going to tell her that he's her father? — Karen
After her less-than-great first impression of Meredith, it's pretty clear that Maggie isn't jumping at the chance to incorporate more new relatives into her life.... read more
