What will the Lost finale reveal about the godforsaken Jack-Kate-Sawyer-Juliet love quadrangle?
Does Izzie's mother save her baby girl's life with just one quick visit to Grey's Anatomy?
Does Chuck ditch Blair in the Gossip Girl finale again?! And who dies on 90210?
Read on for the answers to these Q's and many more in this week's fabulous Spoiler Chat!
Stella in Calif.: What can you tell us about Audrina Partridge's new reality show? She's my favorite on The Hills.
We asked Audrina the same question at the Paley Fest event for The Hills last week, and here's what she told us: "I get so many emails and questions [from fans who] want to know about pictures that they see of me out, and [they ask] 'Why didn't you film that?' All they really see is my relationship with the girls and with Justin. So this is me really opening up my personal, personal life and really letting the cameras come in and exploit everything. Everybody will get to see everything. I'm excited about it. As soon as we're done with The Hills, I'll go right into it."
Tiana in Portland, Ore.: Is Donna Martin coming back to 90210 next season?
There's no official word, but Tori Spelling certainly hopes so. She tells us, "I had a great time. All the fans are really happy that Donna is back, so I hope to do more." So what would little miss Donna be doing if she stuck around Beverly Hills? "Ideally, it would be awesome if David (Brian Austin Green) moved back to Beverly Hills, and we could have Ruby, our baby. I could be a designer and have everything—have my cake and eat it, too. I think it would be great for the fans," adds Tori.
K.B. in Seattle: How about some scoop on the NCIS spinoff? Chris O'Donnell and LL Cool J.
We just interviewed NCIS show runner Shane Brennan, and we'll give you all the dirt on the spinoff and the final four episodes of this season tomorrow, so, check back then! For now, we can tell you that the backdoor pilot eps for the spinoff air tomorrow and next Tuesday, and contrary to published reports, the spinoff is not titled Legend. The two episodes are titled "Legend Part 1" and "Legend Part 2."
Miller in Dallas: When will we know about Chad Michael Murray and Hilarie Burton on One Tree Hill?
The CMM-H.B. situation will go down to the wire. Expect news no sooner than May.
Stephanie in Spokane, Wash.: Can you tell me anything about Glee? It looks incredible.
Glee looks incredible because it is incredible. Everyone at E! Online who's seen it is completely obsessed already. We do nothing but watch the last five minutes on a loop and giggle and cry. The Glee pilot premieres May 19 at 9 p.m. (after Idol), and you must watch. But the season won't start until the fall, according to Fox.
Anna in Teaneck, N.J.: Any news on a Privileged pickup?
Joanna Garcia tells us that Privileged repeats will air Fridays over the summer, and another source whispers that a pickup for season two is looking surprisingly likely! Whoo-hoo for Joanna and Rina Mimoun!
Tammy in Florida: What happened to Kings? I'm assuming it just didn't make it.
Yes, for all intents and purposes, Kings is gone. The remaining episodes of the original 13-ep order are being held until summer, and a season-two pickup is, shall we say, improbable. Kings is dead, long live Kings.
Jpoeling: Who won the Lost Causes We Love Poll? Would it be possible to see those results?
We'll reveal the winner of Lost Causes We Love and the stats for the first round of Save One Show voting, along with the big overall winner of Save One Show, on Friday. Don't forget to vote in the game-changer round!
Hattie in Pasadena, Calif.: Any news on pilot season we should know about?
We ran into the divine Sarah Drew at the ArcLight restaurant, and she just finished shooting Shonda Rhimes' latest pilot, Inside the Box, which is about the Washington, D.C., bureau of a major news network. (Think Sports Night but with politics.) Sorry to be pushy, ABC, but by dint of Sarah Drew being it, we're going to have to insist that Inside the Box go to series. This is not really negotiable. We need Sarah Drew on our TVs, please. Thank you!
Zack in Jacksonville, Fla.: Will you guys be attending the 2009 upfronts in NYC?
Yep, we'll be there, and we'll be blogging and twitterng all the latest and greatest developments as they happen!
Elizabeth: I love Obama, but heaven help me, I think I love Lost more. What will ABC do if the president's speech on Wednesday night runs long and bleeds into Lost's time slot?
Consider this fair warning folks: Set your DVRs with a fat buffer surrounding Lost this Wednesday. At the moment, the network isn't worried, as the prez's 100-days address is scheduled for 8 p.m. and Lost obviously airs at 9, but if he runs long, well, we'll always have ABC.com the morning after.
Debbie in Raleigh, N.C.: How's Izzie doing on Grey's Anatomy?
Sharon Lawrence makes her debut as Izzie's mother this week, and according to Izzie's mother's psychic, Izzie is going to be just fine. You will be shocked to learn Izzie's mother's psychic is not reliable, and in point of fact, Izzie's cancer is getting worse, not better. [Dear Shonda, Please play God and give Izzie a miracle. We want her to live. Love, Team WWK]
Dyan in Yonkers, N.Y.: Any scoop for this week's episode of Grey's Anatomy?
Mer steps over the line with a patient this week, and that causes the fight of the century between her and the Chief. She also uninvites him from the wedding! By the way, you can check out Mer and Der's official wedding website if you happen to be wondering about the special day.
Kim in Bath, England: I need to know if Chuck and Blair are ever going to work things out on Gossip Girl!
We can promise that this year's Gossip Girl finale is not going to be a repeat of last year's Bluck disaster: This time around, Chuck doesn't screw over Blair. In fact, we can promise that if you love Chuck and Blair, you will love the finale, and you will be compensated for all your pain and suffering over this past year.
Wendy in Cape Coral, Fla.: What's the deal with Rufus and Lily on Gossip Girl? Are they going to move in together or what?
That's all going to feel very secondary after the Gossip Girl finale, when we will meet (finally) the spawn of Rufus and Lily. Are you guys excited to meet the spawn, or does his introduction make the show too Brady Bunch-y?
Bobbi in Ithaca, N.Y.: Who dies on 90210?
We won't know until next year. We'll see what appears to be a dead body in the 90210 finale, but the person's face will remain hidden.
Anna in Cardiff, England: Please, any hints for this week's episode of Lost? Can I expect something between Sawyer and Kate?
All we can say is that after you see the finale, you'll understand why season five of Lost has not handed you Sawyer and Kate on a plate.
Eliot and Sandra: Are there any spoilers for the two-part season ender for Lost? We just can't wait! Thanks.
Sayid's wife Nadia is back in the finale. Yes, technically she's his tragically murdered wife, but still: whee! We'll also be meeting young Kate, young Tom (Mr. Friendly Kate's friend from Iowa), young Juliet, young Rachel (Juliet's sister) and young Sawyer, and several of those sightings happen because a pivotal figure in the Island mythology wants to check in on our heroes in their youth, à la Richard Alpert's test visit ("Which of these are yours?") to John Locke.
Joie in San Diego: I hope Dave dies on Desperate Housewives; he's too dangerous for Wisteria Lane!
Oh you think Dave is dangerous? Well, if he does kick the bucket, there's someone else the residents of Wisteria Lane should be watching out for. Kyle MacLachlan teases, "I think Orson is much more dangerous than Dave. I'm sorry, I like Neal [McDonough] very much, but in terms of danger quotient, Orson can do things with a gas mask, watch out!" Sounds like a mystery for next season, especially since Orson is to blame for Edie's death. "As far as the scripts go, now they haven't really addressed it, but I have a feeling it's going to come back to haunt me," adds Kyle.
Donna in Lincoln, Neb.: Any Private Practice info you can share?
Just had a great chat with Amy Brenneman, and we'll post a Q&A in the next couple of days, but here's what we can tell you about the finale: Violet's baby drama very definitely ends in a cliffhanger; Addison and Josh do not behave themselves; and Charlotte gets herself spanked, and not in the fun-sex-with-Cooper way.
Flo in Los Angeles: Can you give more scoop on the Smallville finale death?
Just that there was a consensus in the comments section of our recent Smallville item about which character is dying, and it was not correct. That's all you'll get on that matter, but we will tease that executive producers Brian Peterson and Kelly Souders officially confirmed the return of Tom Welling and Erica Durance, so count them safe. Speaking of the finale, Cassidy Freeman says Tess Mercer is on the hunt for Davis, "Because I want Clark to accept the fact that he is Superman, and I don't think he can do that until he fights Doomsday." Throw down!
Dana in Tempe, Ariz.: Thanks for the Big Love scoop. It was great, but one question: What about Lois? Please tell me she'll be around for season four!
Big Love show runner Will Scheffer tells us that Grace Zabriskie (Lois) is going to be front and center next season. "We've got a pretty big story for Lois and her husband and maybe a grandson or two. The last line she spoke in episode two last season is when she approaches Wanda and says, 'Might you tell me from where you made the purchase of that bird, so if I might want one for companionship, I would know where to procure one.' That's the hint." No idea what the heck that means, but it sounds crazy!
Peter in Salem, Ore.: Is Rhonda ever coming back to Big Love?
Someone asked the exact same question about Daveigh Chase's character at the Big Love Paley Fest '09 panel, and show runner Mark V. Olsen simply responded, "She's a gal who makes her way around. You might see Rhonda up here on Hollywood Boulevard." Obviously joking about the wild polygamist runaway, we're guessing Rhonda is not finished with Big Love yet, but won't be back anytime soon.
Cece in Smyrna, Tenn.: Is Paul Ballard going to find the L.A. Dollhouse before the end of the season?
According to Dollhouse boss Joss Whedon, "Paul's going to find way more than he expects to. He's going to find a lot. It's not pretty."
Gisselle in Tampa, Fla.: When are Booth and Bones getting together?
Booth and Bones are getting together in the Bones season finale, airing May 14 on Fox! According to Emily Deschanel, "It should be surprising and good. The way it happens is surprising...I'm glad we waited this long. I think Hart [Hanson] wanted to find a clever way to put them together that wouldn't forever taint everything on the show, and I think he figured a very clever way to do it."
Malin in Alvesta, Sweden: When will Michael learn about the pregnancy in Prison Break? Please let it be soon!
Sorry, it won't be that soon. But Michael will find out about the pregnancy before the series ends. Prison Break ends May 15. Are you following this?
Michelle in Montana: Any Sons of Anarchy news?
Just that we need your help deciphering show runner Kurt Sutter's weekend blog post about some upcoming SOA casting: "Had a great meeting with an actor today whom I hope will be playing Ethan Zobelle. Zobelle is a new proprietor in Charming and the leader of an ultraconservative organization. Can't reveal any names until the deal closes, but this guy is a fascinating actor from a very talented family. That character shoots Friday, so I hope it closes early this week." So, what do you think, guys: Which white guy with a lot of creative, showbiz relatives could play Henry Rollins' white supremacist boss on SOA? Could Jeff Bridges do it? Miguel Ferrer? Is there a spare Phoenix sibling lying around we could use? Your brainstorms are welcome in the comments!
Rachel in Tucson, Ariz.: Any chance Kate and Castle are going to hook up on Castle? It's my favorite show!
Sorry to burst your bubble, but it's not happening anytime soon. Stana Katic teases, "We bring in another guy, an ex of mine, and he stirs up the pot a bit. We also discover a little bit more about her past, because Castle starts digging into it. He actually starts researching some of the files and finds out some interesting stuff on what happened to my mother." When it comes to the finale, Stana is tight-lipped, but says it ends with a cliffhanger, so here's hoping ABC picks up Castle for a second season.
Kaitlyn in Seattle: Will Conrad or Heylia make an appearance in season five of Weeds?
Jenji Kohan says, "Right now, it's not looking good. We have a lot of stuff to do. As much as we'd love to, Romany Malco is really busy, and I don't know necessarily where we'd fit them in. There are no plans as of yet." Bummer.
Courtnie in Pasadena, Calif.: The promos for In Plain Sight show a lot of cool guest stars. Who is on deck this season?
There's guest stars a-plenty coming up, including Clarke Peters (The Wire), Martin Landau, Richard Schiff and Sherilyn Fenn. Up first is Clarke in an episode about an architect of a faulty bridge.
Rick in Boston: What's coming up on Rescue Me?
Emotions run high in season five episode four (titled "Jimmy") as Tommy (Denis Leary) starts seeing his cousin Jimmy, who died on 9/11. The tough guy even heads to a psychic (Tommy?! Yep!), who claims to be able to communicate with the dead, to come to peace with his visions and his loss. It doesn't exactly work. Meanwhile, Sheila tries to purge Tommy from her life by making a bonfire of all of his photos. Ouch!
Meredith in Bowling Green, Ky.: Loved the Caprica film. Paula Malcolmson is amazing. When does she find out about Zoe?
The Caprica star herself says that Amanda won't find out right away. Paula tells us, "She's not going learn early. I think there's just too much payoff if you let it hang out there—I mean, the betrayal, it's just going to be massive."
Janea in Queens, N.Y.: Any Better Off Ted scoop?
That show is hilarious, isn't it? The love triangle between Jay Harrington, Portia de Rossi and Andrea Anders continues. Says Jay, "Linda and Ted try to figure out if it's right for them, and Veronica puts in her two cents, which usually adds up to 20 cents." As far as the rest of this season, Jay teases, "I just lost my identity, and then we have a fight club that happens in the basement for Phil and Lem, but it's medieval. There are a lot of knaves and knights and princesses. Rose is out of town, so Ted gets involved. It's some pretty funny stuff."
Max in Hendersonville, N.C.: What's the scoop on the Numb3rs finale?
We just caught up with Navi Rawat at the Prism Awards, and she teased the big season finale, "Something really bad happens to Amita at the end of the second-to-last episode, and that flows into the season finale. It's a bit of a disaster. The cliffhanger ends with my character. She's put in a perilous situation, so it's up to Charlie (David Krumholtz) and the rest of the FBI team to come to her rescue if they can."
Lyric in Hollywood, Calif.: Monk is coming back soon, what can you dish?
In the eighth and final season, Monk's therapist, Dr. Bell, has a lot of work to do. Hector Elizondo teases, "I think eventually I may get Monk to unbutton his top button on his shirt."
