Tis' the season, TV fans!
Is it too early for Christmas references? Well, since we're giving out scoop on lots of Christmas episodes (Community, for example), we think not.
And since you've all been such good little boys and girls, we've also got news on One Tree Hill's final season, a certain Glee castmember who's sticking around longer than we thought, and a simply legendary character returns to How I Met Your Mother. But first, we need to talk about our current TV obsession, Once Upon a Time and the big Sons of Anarchy finale. All that, plus scoop on Bones, Nikita, Revenge and more in this week's Spoiler Chat…
Charvi5: Anything on Once Upon a Time please!!
There will be fairy tales that branch out of the central European folklore: "I wouldn't be surprised to see fairy tales from other traditions coming in as well," consulting producer Jane Espenson teases. "So keep your eye out for some stuff that's maybe not quite so Swiss looking." In addition to Hansel and Gretel, this certainly opens the doors for Greek mythology, Middle Eastern folktales, perhaps enough material for 50 seasons and two movies? We can only hope.
Tiffanydiane08: Any scoop at all on the Hot Hipster Sheriff (OUaT) would be very appreciated!
You're in luck because we actually chatted with the HHS himself Jamie Dornan about his upcoming episode. While he wouldn't reveal who he is in the fairy-tale world, he did say they originally had a different character in mind, "But that didn't end up happening because of rights." He wouldn't tell us who, but when he guessed Robin Hood he said, "You're probably right." Check back with us later in the week to hear more from TV's hottest Sheriff ever! And the answer to your question is yes, his accent is every bit as swoonworthy on the phone as it is on the show.
Stacey: Please give me some scoop on David and Mary Margaret on OUaT! They broke my heart last episode!
Darn David/Prince Charming (Josh Dallas) and Mary Margaret/Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin) and their off-the-charts chemistry! Remember those behind-the-scenes pictures of David and MM kissing? The kiss is definitely one-sided. Sigh, can't they just live happily ever after already?!
JeHong9: was the prince's death on once upon a time's latest episode the big death?
Nope. And here's a small tease: the upcoming death puts that one to shame. It's epic.

Barb910: Can you tease anything about the Sons of Anarchy finale? The suspense is killing me!
Shakespearean spoiler alert! If you know anything about Hamlet (the play we are incessantly reminded that SOA parallels) or even Michael Corleone, it should be clear that SAMCRO's indecisive prince can neither slay the usurping king nor leave Denmark. The fair Ophelia isn't exactly going to a nunnery, but she probably won't be sticking around to become a floater in Charming.
Fernanaberry: what's the dish on Brooke this season on one tree hill?
Well, we know Brooke Davis (Sophia Bush) has a stunning and moving voiceover in the first full-length trailer for the final season of One Tree Hill. What? You haven't seen the official promo for season nine? That is a wrong that must quickly be righted! Head on over to One Tree Hill's official Facebook page to check out the video. Bring a paper bag to breathe into…it's a doozy.
Roma_7: Some HIMYM please?
One of our favorite How I Met Your Mother characters is returning later this season: Jasmine, Lily's (Alyson Hannigan) stripper doppelganger! Added bonus? We'll meet her Russian boyfriend Arvydas. Expect a lot of strip joint shenanigans from the gang in the episode.
glee_shae can you give us glee spoilers?
Sam isn't just after Mercedes when he returns to McKinley High. No, he'll also be after something more…leathery. "[He's] trying to get a letterman jacket," Overstreet says. "He's trying to get into some sport somehow, but there is a twist to the swimming. It's a synchronized swimming team." Who else cannot wait another second to see Sam, in a Speedo, diving gracefully into the pool? It'll be just like this birth-control commercial.
agentwulf86: glee scoop please!
Guess who's sticking around for longer than originally planned? Damian McGinty, our favorite Irish vortex of charm. "I found out that I am doing more than seven [episodes]," McGinty tells us excitedly. "I don't know for how long. I've learned not to expect anything and just go along with it and work hard and appreciate everything." Plus, he'll be apart of a new bromance during the Christmas episode. "Rory gets really homesick and he bonds with Sam (Chord Overstreet), and it's actually a cute little storyline for that. And he sings!"
Snixxissnuts: please tell me Tina gets a decent storyline coming up
Absolutely! She is one-half of Glee's longest-standing couple, after all. Harry Shum Jr. tells us: "We've got sectionals coming up and Mike's storyline is coming back in. We get a visit from his father and Tina (Jenna Ushkowitz) tries to help Mike out." Awww! But wait, there's more! "We get to sing sort of a duet," Shum adds. "We get to sing a song together on "ABC" in sectionals, so I'm excited." As are we.
amasonblock: I need something on
#csiny. Do you have anything on Flack or Danny and Lindsay? I would also love something about Lucy!
Lucky for you, we'll be onset of CSI:NY tomorrow. So we'll get you all that scoop…and more! Leave us more questions for the cast in the comments, ya hear?
Bronzia88: When is the real Emily leaving Jack alone? And why isn't real Amanda doing anything about it? #Revenge
Well, we're not sure what our Emily (Emily VanCamp) can do about it, considering she'd have to out herself as the real Amanda in the process. And unfortunately, real Emily/fake Amanda (Margarita Levieva) is still hanging with the clueless (yet adorable) Jack (Nick Wechsler) in episode 13. Rage with us in the comments, won't you?
Iknitandtell: Any Revenge spoilers?
Break out yer notebooks and sweats 'cause Revenge is heading back to college! We're going to see Daniel (Joshua Bowman) during his college years, getting his flirt on at a bar. Who knows, maybe we'll get to see his first meeting with the Hamptons' very own Talented Mr. Ripley Tyler (Ashton Holmes)?
Jmnzl: Anything about Tyler/Nolan on Revenge?
As you know from the promo for this Wednesday's episode, Emily finds out about Nolan's (Gabriel Mann) arrangement with Tyler and is less than thrilled. Combine that with the frosty exchange between Emily and Nolan in the pilot's flash-forward and it's safe to say their alliance is probably over. "You don't want to mess with Nolan. Somewhere underneath it, he's just as revenge-y as everyone else, so don't mess with him that way," Mann tells us. "He's got too much money, he'll do bad, bad things and when his feelings get hurt, that will set him off."
stardustMH: I'm loving 2 Broke Girls, Can you tell me if Max is going to be hooking up with Johnny or if he is coming back for more eps?
We're loving it, too! Now that we're best friends forever, we'll share some of our hopes and dreams with you. We are still hoping that Max (Kat Dennings) and Johnny (Nick Zano) will still find a way to work things out and become the cutest, snarkiest couple on CBS. But when we were recently on the set of 2 Broke Girls, Kat Dennings told us they're keeping Max's love life, "very hush-hush." Don't fret, because we'll get to the bottom of this and let you know in time for their mid-season finale next week.
Martucacomayuca: ok ok ok, I have not read a single Castle-related thing from you...how about some juicy spoilers?
Things to look forward to coming up on Castle: a dog show, paparazzi and a flashback to the 40s. Not all in one episode, of course. But how awesome would that be?
MariValeria: with Fox moving Bones to fit The Finder the wait is going to be longer! Do you have any scoop to get us through?
Harsh news for Bones fans, eh? For those who haven't heard, the network announced today that episode six of Bones, originally scheduled for Dec. 15, has been moved to Jan. 12 to help push the premiere of The Finder. But episode seven is where the party is at! Not only does someone actually have the stones to try and assault a very pregnant Bones (Emily Deschanel), but the parents-to-be run into a "there's no room at the Inn" situation à la Mary and Joseph.
Goldstaarr: Anything you can hint about what is to come on Nikita when it returns?
It's time to meet the original Nikita (Maggie Q): Carla. Remember how Nikita helped Alex (Lyndsy Fonseca) recover? Described as compassionate and spiritual, Carla did the same for Nikita ten years ago before she suddenly disappeared. When the two ladies are reunited, shocking secrets are revealed about both parties. What interested us? There's a chance for Carla to pop up on a recurring basis.
Christina: Any NCIS scoop you care to share?
Sharing is caring, so here's what we can tell you: The show is currently looking to cast the possibly recurring role of Elaine, a friendly waitress who knows her regulars well. She'll first appear in the monumental 200th episode.
Craig: Don't hold back: How awesome is this week's musical episode of Community?
How about we let this song lyric sung in the first ten minutes answer that question: "Glee! It's the feeling you get when your brain finally lets your heart get in its pants!" Plus, everyone spends the whole episode wondering what "Regionals" are, which is a pretty hilarious little jab at Glee. Basically, the Christmas episode is perfect in every imaginable way. It's so perfect, we are obsessively counting down the undetermined number of days until Community returns in the Spring. And it will return.
@hgt_love06: any more cute Ben/Leslie to look forward to or are they on the back burner this time??
They aren't on the back burner, but they aren't the focal point of this week's episode, either. And yes, they are still adorable. But most importantly, April (Aubrey Plaza) kills the Black Eyed Peas. Kind of. Plus, you will be in tears by the end of the episode. But they are good tears, so don't worry! And your happy feelings will have nothing to do with Ben (Adam Scott) and Leslie (Amy Poehler). In a surprising twist, Ron Swanson (Nick Offerman) was the man who made us cry at the end of the episode. It's a can't miss!
Gretchen: The Office always puts out the best Christmas episodes. What's in store this year?
A possible new couple emerging from certain shenanigan's going down during the Christmas party! Any guesses?
Frank: Have any scoop on the series finale of The Closer?
The TNT drama is going out without a shirt. Literally. They are currently casting the role of Rusty, a young male prostitute described as "smart" and "savvy."
Steve: Happy Endings me now!
Oh Steve, we just love questions that are also innuendos. Remember Alex's (Elisha Cuthbert) diabetic pet snake Tyler? He's coming back! OK, not really, but Alex is getting a pet parrot, which she also names Tyler. Oh, and guess what? He's racist. And a "gay-cist." So, yeah, the group won't be too keen on him.
Shannon: What's coming up on Hawaii Five-0?! You've been holding out on us!
Fans will be meeting Danny's (Scott Caan) former police partner in episode 15, when Rick, "the ex," seeks revenge against McGarrett's (Alex O'Loughlin) BFF. And yes, fans should start worrying as Rick particularly enjoys watching Danny suffer. Ruh-roh!
Benjamin: Hit me with some Hawaii Five-0 scoop!
Prepare for flashbacks! We'll get to see McGarrett at age 16. Like any normal teenager, he's pretty angsty, especially towards his father.
The1nonlynisha: anything on Hart of Dixie?
One of our three leading men, George (Scott Porter), Wade (Wilson Bethel) and Lavon (Cress Williams), will win Bluebell's Man of the Year. Seriously.
