Once Upon a Time Poll: Was Neal’s Return Worth the Wait?
‘s Emma feels about Regina actively choosing to stay in the Underworld to help her find Hook? —Amanda
All told, save for Rumple’s bailing on Operation Firebird, you’re going to see among Emma, Regina et al a greater unity than during their Neverland adventure. “We’re a closer unit now,” says Jennifer Morrison. “We’ve been through a lot more at this point, and in coming across these people in the Underworld, we’ve returned to the situation of being heroes that can help. So whereas in Storybrooke we were helping return happy endings, we’re now helping people overcome their unfinished business, so there are callbacks to what we saw in Seasons 1 and 2.”
“Theyyyyy… are very much aware of each other,” Colin O’Donoghue allowed, when I asked about Hook’s dynamic with the Underworld overlord. “And that’s about all I can say! But they definitely are aware of each other.”

Now that Jane has put the brakes on a romance with Weller, she’ll find herself more and more intrigued by Oscar, especially given their loaded history — and series creator Martin Gero isn’t ruling out a rekindling of their relationship. “They have an intense bond, just by virtue of the fact that he knows all the stuff that she desperately wants to know,” he tells us. “Even Kurt, who recognizes her as Taylor Shaw — he hasn’t known her since he was five. And here is this person that knows her, knows what she was like, knows what she did. You can’t help but be drawn toward someone like that.”
‘s Rogelio and Michael will continue their epic bromance! They have the best relationship on the show. —Tara
Not only is the bromance rekindled, but Rogelio “takes the reins” of Michael’s bachelor party in an upcoming episode, executive producer Jennie Urman reveals. “You can imagine it’s maybe not the night that Michael and his buddies had in mind.”

’ Tess? Seeing that she is to appear in Michael Weatherly’s last episode, time is running out. –Amber
This is where I remind you that “TVLine keeps no secrets,” meaning we will of course trumpet from the mountaintops any casting of a new series regular on TV’s most watched drama. But as of Tuesday afternoon, “We’re neck deep in [casting Tess] at the moment, and I’m thrilled by the number of actresses who have expressed interest,” showrunner Gary Glasberg told me. “We’re just trying to find the right person, the right mix.” As for the male agent that is
being added in time for Season 14, “He will be younger — late-20s, something like that,” Glasberg shared.
Any news on if Scottie Thompson is coming back before
get the gossip mill churning as to the impetus for Michael Weatherly’s exit storyline. But all Glasberg would say on the topic of another Jeanne sighting is: “We’re talking about it.”
I am excited to be writing in for the first time! Do you have any intel on the new season of

Season 4 finds the Jennings’ entire way of life in jeopardy as they decide what to do about Pastor Tim, and as usual, Philip and Elizabeth are not in agreement. Meanwhile, Stan and Philip fight, Elizabeth has a major scare and Nina reconnects with [Spoiler]. Also, remember Henry, the Jennings’ neglected son? He’s had (another) growth spurt and is now eyeballing the ladies!

Expect next week’s Season 2 finale to look and feel “very different than anything we’ve done before,” showrunner Pete Nowalk teases. “The finale is very character-revealing, and it’s slower-paced in a way that I find cool and different. But it ends in a way that people will want to see what happens next season.” If that description sends your inner spinning cheerleader into a freefall, you’ll be relieved to hear that the closer (entitled “Anna Mae”) also contains something quite familiar. “There
be a dead body,” Nowalk adds. “But know that I don’t want to do anything you’ll expect.”
Please, Matt, find me some good scoop on

The subject of Norma’s hilariously ill-conceived marriage proposal to Romero comes up again in Monday’s episode — but it’s Romero who broaches it. Twist!
Rumor has it there’s a Carol/Daryl moment in this Sunday’s episode that “Caryl” shippers will quite like.
RELATEDWalking Dead Poll: Does ‘Richonne’ Have a Love That’s to Die For?
fans expect from the Bruce/Selina relationship? –Catherine
Though Selina is a “freelancer” who “doesn’t like any commitments — she’s like a cat in that respect” — Camren Bicondova says that her agile alter ego “does allow Bruce to come into her life a bit more, and in a different way than she would have in Season 1. You’ll see a different aspect of their relationship that shows the audience that Selina Kyle has some input into what Bruce Wayne eventually becomes, which I think is really cool.”
When I visited the cast on set, Caity Lotz was quite stoked for viewers to see a “totally cool, giant swordfight” that takes place on or around Episode 10. As for tonight’s episode, which takes us to the 1950s for a couple of weeks, Brandon Routh promised “nothing crazy” fashion-wise for the men, outside of “three-piece suits with vests and bowties.”
I have a question about how promotion works for a TV show. Why would a network not have leads for certain shows do interviews or any kind of promotion? Could it be because of geography, for a show that doesn’t shoot in L.A.? Is it due to cost? Is it possible it’s because the actors don’t want to? Or are there other factors that go into those decisions? Thanks for any light you can shine on that process. –Lori
Among the possible reasons you suggest, you may notice that the longer in the tooth a series gets, the less often its first-tier leads will do PR. (I know specifically of one network drama where after the first couple of seasons, the leads declared, “We did the heavy lifting for the show’s launch. We’re done now.” Not helping matters was that one of those actors got blindsided by some verboten personal questions during one interview.) I’ve also heard talk that the lead on no-longer-new series set a limit of three (3) total interviews going into this season. On the flipside, you see pros like Thomas Gibson regularly promoting
, even 11 seasons in. It’s definitely a mixed bag out there.
‘s Lance Hunter or Bobbi Morse? —Wheaton
The kicker of the next episode uncorks a twist that promises a showcase for the couple, as the ABC makes the most of them before the
spinoff possibly steals them away. “We hope that one day they may have their own show,” says EP Jeffrey Bell, “but while they’re on
, we want to take advantage of who they are and give the audience as much of their relationship with one another and with other people as possible, to make that really satisfying. We are aware that there is a potential imminent end, but they won’t be neglected [in the meantime].”
Indeed, in next week’s episode a traitor is revealed to be compromising Coulson’s agenda. Though the more pertinent question may be not “Who?” but “Why?”
Even though she’s hiding behind more and bigger desks, expectant Melissa Fumero
on track to appear in the season finale. “Unless she’s in a hospital right now giving birth, she’s finishing out the season,” series boss Mike Schur told us this week. In fact, as Fumero enters the final stretch, “[The writers] came up with an incredibly funny and smart way to deal with her pregnancy, visually. As a person who watches TV professionally and is acutely aware of the thousands of ways that people have invented to hide pregnancies, I think you’ll appreciate its particular specificity.”
Quite possibly, though that seems a bit less likely now that Shantel Van Santen’s USA Network pilot,
, has been ordered to series. But in a best-case scenario, “We have not seen the last of Patty,” exec producer Andrew Kreisberg told me at the time of her send-off. “We very consciously did not kill her.”

I think some of us like to watch Tom’s interviews just because he never smiles on CM and watching Dharma & Greg (where he _does_ smile) gets old after a while.
It is interesting to see how different Thomas is from his character on CM, yeah, when you watch interviews or blooopers or whatever. Heck, the entire cast seems like quite the goofy, funny bunch, which is amusing considering the dark nature of the show they work on. But of course, working on a show like that, it makes sense that after a while everyone would want to find a way to keep things light on set.
I know funeral home staff keep it light–depending on where you work, anyway!
I can imagine, and I certainly don’t blame them! I know some people in those kinds of jobs, as well as those in law enforcement, can sometimes develop that “gallows humor”-some of the absurd things they see, you’d have to find the humor in it somewhere.
I think Lincoln is the traitor. I have this gut feeling.
What’s happening with the NBC series, You Me And The Apocalypse? I really think it is a very good show. Have heard no hype about it all. Is it doing well in the ratings? Will there be a second season? Rob Lowe is a priest in this show, while being on The Grinder too!
That was announced as ending after just one season 2 days ago.
I was thinking that too! Daisy would have some MAJOR trust issues if it happened again, so for the sake of her not being fooled by a guy she let in, I hope not.
I miss OUAT. Let me know when The Hook Show is over.
Hook show? please it never has and never been the Hook. It’s the Emma show
Regina is helping to find someone from their team and family, and how important he is to Emma. And as we saw even more stay for the fact to help other souls (that she sent here lol) and the clocked ticked coz a soul left.
Now i want to know the Hades and Hook backstory if there is one…
Have her going undercover with a ‘fake” pregnancy! The squad can let go with all those jokes the actors have been saving up….
And she’s such a perfectionist OFCOURSE she’d “stay in character” even when just around the precinct….
LOVE. THIS. Make it happen, Mike Schur!
Hoping Gary Glasburg keeps talking about Scottie Thompson returning. I love how she and Michael Weatherly make the screen melt whenever they’re together, and hope to see her again in some capacity, even if it’s just for some better closure with Tony. That kind of chemistry shouldn’t be wasted.
Agreed. And she and Michael Weatherly look like they have such a great time when she guest-stars – he truly seems to enjoy working with her.
Me, too! Those two have great chemistry and the actors give us such honest moments concerning the internal conflict both characters are experiencing.
Really wish that Glasberg would just shut up though and do his job well rather than incite so much conflict within the show’s online base.
Sorry (?), but I have a column to fill, and the whole idea here is to get reader questions answered.
And it’s well filled, as usual ;) I expect NCIS will try to keep Tony’s exit as secret as possible and I’m okay with that as long as it’s not death. And I’m really intrigued with the idea of Jeanne/Scottie returning, I still think there’s great chemistry there and the possibility of a redemptive arc there. I hope Tony gets to stay in law enforcement…and maybe Jeanne could open a clinic nearby.
Couldn’t agree more. The chemistry between MW & ST is amazing. I’m hoping somehow they make Tony & Jeanne end up together!!!
I think they are toxic together. They make each other miserable.
I believe it’s because they refuse to admit they still love each other. When they were together it was hot, passionate.
Better get that Carol/Daryl scene in there for the shippers now because I don’t think one of them will be with us next season. Just speculation. Personally I was kinda hoping the Caryl thingy would just die considering she clearly hooked up with Tobin last week, LOL!!!
Yeah that was my fear too…If they hook up there’s even more of a chance that one of them dies. Ugh.
That question about leads not doing interviews….screams Sleepy Hollow. Tom and Nicole are M.I.A when it comes to PR for that show. It’s just the craziest thing!
You would think with their ratings they would be out there interviewing. The network should say we pay you a lot if money and your ratings suck so get out there and help save the show that pays your bills. Sometimes egos destroy a show ala Almost Human
The thing is, neither Tom or Nicole seem like they have that type of ego. At the same time, however, you never know with actors/actresses and what goes on behind the scenes. Regardless, it makes no sense why they never do the PR for the show, but instead we always see the supporting cast rambling away. Lol.
The both go to Comic Con and I have seen and read interviews with both of them including one with Tom Mison on this site pretty recently so this seems like an odd statement.
It’s really not an odd statement. Tom and Nicole haven’t done an interview in ages! The last event that I recall them going to was some Con event like a month before Season 3 started…that was back in Sept. They are never in the spotlight when it comes to promoting Sleepy Hollow. It’s ALWAYS the “B” characters. Always.
I absolutely do not care for Lance Hunter or Bobbi Morse. I just hope their spinoff does not replace the excellent Agent Carter. In the meantime, the less we see of them on Agents of SHIELD the better.
OTOH I like them well enough but can’t see anything special about them in a standalone show. Let alone compared to the uniqueness of Agent Carter.
i thought i was alone! i like hunter without bobbi but cant see a whole show based on them. the super hero movies/shows are getting to be a bit much and they are flooding the market
I agree. I just don’t see myself being interested in a show based on those two.
Wow!! how many murders are these characters going to get away with on HTGAWM. I’m guessing Philip is going to kill one of the main characters my guess is either Frank with him being on the redemption road and all…or it could be Micheala. Could this Dead Body be linked to the Blind item??
I was thinking that, too, about the blind item-I know a lot of people have been suggesting that show as a possible option.
Thing is, though, the season finale for that show is next week, and that blind item came out this week. That’s not to say it couldn’t be connected to the show, of course, but that’d be an awfully short heads up if it were. Usually those items come out at least a month before the event in question, if not earlier.
(That does make me wonder now, though, what the shortest time span between a blind item and its reveal has been on here.)
I was actually thinking that HTGAWM will go against type and have someone die naturally, like Annalise’s mother. Isn’t she supposed to show up again this season?
No Bermuda shorts on Captain Cold, The Atom, or Firestorm? What a shame.
Love your article any information on renewal of penn teller fool us and fox show lucifer which I think is clever and well written
TVLine’s hand-carved Renewal Scorecard is linked atop every TVLine webernet page in vivid yellow.
Great question, Lori! Matt, as a follow up: Can (or Do) networks stipulate such things in contract language? (i.e. As a lead, you will be required to do a minimum of X number of promo events during every year the show airs.” (First run, that is, not syndication).
So does that mean Patty comes back to be killed?
Where did the traitor thing come from on Agents of SHIELD? I must have missed something.
Official synopsis for episode 12 talks about a traitor.
I thought there was closure between Tony & Jeanne with the last episode & Tony clearly has moved on with that line ‘If I could turn back time, I’d go back to when we left South Sudan, cause we were in a better place’.
Having said that, the network and show did tease us TIVA fans for 8 years & we’re still waiting for the ultimate payoff, Tony and Ziva reunited for good. 😊
Her response and his visible reaction to that shifted things.
They’ve not resolved things, far rom it by that scene. I admit to being surprised the writers went there.
Please no more Jeanne. We already had one two many episodes with her this season. Saviors was a really nice ending for them, and her second visit ruined it. I don’t want to sewer her again. She will always hold that guilt over Tony’s head.
I guess that Regina being the one who really want to get over her past as a murderer, is the perfect choice for saving all those people, while Emma can focus just on Hook for once. I think it’s time, after all Regina has done as Evil Queen, to put everything behind. I just hope that her beautiful reunion with her dad, it’s not gonna be the last of her redemption. We can never be sure with the writers.
And now I’m really interested in what Ades and Hook are doing. Beside the torture.
If Tony loved Jeanne he would have gone looking for her instead of Ziva. There was no doubt in Israel they love each other. She just needed time to heal. Tony needs Ziva not Jeanne. Jeanne is married now and they had good closure in Saviors, and no need to bring her back in Loose Cannons to make him feel guilty all over again. Enough with forcing Jeanne. They need to get over the bitterness and egos and do what’s right and bring Ziva back for Tony to leave with.
Well, the writers and even MW have stated that Jeanne is Tony’s OTL.
Michael actually said he thought Tony and Ziva were endgame. The funny thing about Michael is, he says all kinds of crazy things. But in the end it’s not his call.
A bit of trivia about Melissa Fumero. Her birth name is Gallo. She met David Fumero when they were both acting on One Life To Live. They married in 2007 and she took his last name professionally.
Just because the actress is available doesn’t mean they need to bring her back for Tony. She’s married, and she just makes him feel guilty. He never looked for Jeanne in nine years so that doesn’t say a lot of love to me. The writer Scott Williams said Michael will have input so we’ll just have to wait and see.
Not “need” per se, but actor availability is a critical component absent a recast. There’s Zack from Bones, bringing that character back, as much many fans would prefer given a lot of comments, is probably vastly more complex to impossible as the portrayer has seemingly retired from the profession….
Just a lot easier to write for an actor who shows up. IMHO.
No-one cares about Patty! LOL! I was hoping for an actual spoiler. Guess this is a way of delivering Flash info but not really because yeah right! That’s the question at the tip of our tongues when will that random chick return?
What the heck is going on with the man in the mask? That’s the real question.
I really enjoy reading your scoops! However, when a loud video ad pops up in the middle screaming about some stupid insurance, it is very annoying. It’s bad enough there are ads all over the site causing it to take longer than usual to load. Now VIDEOS are popping up in the middle of reading??? Please stop!
I think it’s important to bring Cote dePablo’s character on NCIS as Michael Weatherly prepares to leave. Those two were dynamic and it would be awesome to have them reunited and ride off into the sunset together.
No, not even a little bit. She had her ending, done years back. This is Michael’s/Tony’s ending to be explored.
Yes, MW doesn’t deserve to be overshadowed by Ziva/Tiva, it’s Tony’s exit not Tiva’s.
Is it possible that Cote De Pablo will be in Micheal’s final episodes or is that a route the writers are unwilling to take? I know a lot of fans myself included would love to see her back for Micheal’s final episodes
No Patty, no, please. Thank you, but no. BARF. She dragged the shown down along with the awful Legends take over.
Two new characters (Tess and 20something) and both sound like agents. If they’d add 2 new agents where would they fit the 5th person or could Gibbs have a new created position within the agency and Tess (who already sounds a LOT like Gibbs) takes over as team lead?
So glad Scottie Thompson as Jeanne may possibly be appearing again before Tony ends his time on Team Gibbs. I’m a fan of indefinite maybe’s. :-)
#NCIS I would like to see Cote back for Tony’s departure. …I was very upset when she left but got over it ..I don’t care for Bishop. But that being said I still love the show. Kate and Ziva were the best girl actors along side Tony.
Rumple DID give the hero-crites the potion. He gave them the means to communicate with Hook and now it’s up to them. Without Rumple, they’d be up *****creek without a paddle as my father would say
Got a question about Legends of Tomorrow. Is there any chance that Chronos is Mick Rory (Heatwave)?
When will Michael Weatherly’s last episode be aired?
Coralie, The season finale schedule isn’t out yet but probably the May 17 or 24.
I wann ziva back for tonys departure please.
Why is Glasberg still pursuing a romantic storyline between Tony and Jeanne,her SL ended eight years ago when Tony rejected her, is this Glasberg way of telling all of Cotes fans that she will not be appearing in the final episode or any other episode leading up to Michaels departure from the show.
