Ian Somerhalder getting naked. Glee love triangle. Gossip Girl post-wedding scoop. These are all statements that probably grabbed your attention, and we don't blame you one bit. So it's a good thing we have all three of those things—and plenty more—to back up our big talk!
So why is Damon once again showing some skin on Vampire Diaries? And will Sam ever win back Mercedes on Glee? Then there's that little ol' Gossip Girl wedding havoc to discuss. All that, plus scoop on Bones, How I Met Your Mother, Once Upon a Time and more in this week's Spoiler Chat…
Bianca: Vampire Diaries scoop? Is there anything at all you can say about The Originals coming back?
The return of The Originals brings with it some great sibling rivalry. None of them are happy with Klaus for having carted them around in coffins—and he gets to see what it's like being on the receiving end of their anger. Translation: Poor (hot) Joseph Morgan might need a hug. Any of you fans willing and able? Well, get in line!
nickstives: Is it true Damon is hooking up with someone other than Elena? Say it ain't so!
Damon will get naked with someone other than Elena. If you Damon-Elena fans want the good news about this particular storyline, just stop reading after the first four words of the previous sentence.
Biggiepie: Anything on TVD that's coming up that we don't know?
With TVD never one to drag a story out too long, we hear that the mysterious locked coffin will be opened sooner than you think. As in, count the days! Yeehaw!
Gossip Girl! Are we going to be surprised by tonight's episode?
Very! Check back here right at 9 p.m. PT because I'm gonna have some great scoop from big, big bosses Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage regarding tonight's wedding shocker!
Madison: Where the heck has Ivy been hiding on Gossip Girl?!
Funny you should ask since we posed that exact question (minus the" heck" 'cause we're ladies and shiz!) to executive producer Josh Safran. His answer? "That's a real good question. The fact that you asked that question, there's an answer in that." So yeah, we're thinking she's literally in hiding. Oh, and she does not make an appearance in tonight's 100th episode.
Benjie: Is the Artie-Sugar romance still happening on Glee?
Don't you mean the Artie-Sugar-Rory romance? Take a look at the love triangle going down in this photo just released from the Valentine's Day episode, titled "Heart." Who do you think is making it rain glitter and hearts for Sugar? Smooth Artie or charming Rory?
Madison: Samcedes! #Glee
Chord Overstreet tells us that Valentine's Day will be full of love, drama and "surprises" for Sam and Mercedes (Amber Riley). Maybe she finally dumps her football boyfriend for Trouty Mouth? Chord also reminded us that no one knows what year his character is, so his season-four fate is still unclear. When we asked if he'd be willing to do another season of Glee, he said: "Yes, if they want to bring me back. We'll see. I don't really know what the game plan is or what year my character is. I don't think anybody really knows!"
xIEmmaR: ANYTHING Coming up for Tina on Glee? Tired of barely seeing her in the episodes! Thank you! :)
Then the Valentine's Day episode is for you, Tina fans. And it'll be especially special if you are a Mike-Tina fan. Duh! It's Valentine's Day! Of course we'll get to see some sweet action from the longest-standing couple on Glee!
Sierra in Nasville, Tenn: I'm loving Paul Rudd on Parks and Rec so much that it's making me question my allegiance to Leslie!
Li'l Sebastian is very disappointed in you right now, missy. So far we've been under the impression that you can either "Vote Knope" or vote for Rudd's character Bobby Newport and eat a "Bobby Bar" (his Dad made them!) in the race for Pawnee's 2012 City Council. But did you know that the fourth most obese city in America has more hidden candidates running in this election? In episode 20, titled "The Debate," we'll get to meet Fester Trim, a very stern man who owns the local Gun Emporium, as well as Manrico, a fella who loves animals (but hates children). You've still got our vote Leslie!
SliderHMSS: Not much of a spoiler issue, but have you heard anything about a (what can only be described as) glorious Community return?
Rest assured the show is coming back. And with a Chang! (Get it?!) We've learned the show is currently casting Chang's (Ken Jeong) mother and she's one tough momma. Bonus: Chang, the ever dependable Greendale security guard, is getting a Lieutenant!
HelenaKirstine: Anything, anything at all on Once Upon a Time. Please!
Prepare for Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin) flashbacks! We'll be seeing Snow when she was 12, innocent enough to believe everyone is capable of the same kindness she and her father possess. Any casting suggestions?
Nicole: Anything on Once Upon a Time?
Giancarlo Esposito wants you to go home right now and make sure your DVR is set to record next week's Once Upon a Time. And you'd better listen to him. "I have a great storyline coming up," he tells us. "Next week you're going to see some fireworks between Sidney and the Evil Queen (Lana Parrilla)." Something tells us these fireworks won't be the good kind, like the ones Katy Perry sings to us about.
Sarah: Any Hart of Dixie scoop?!
We are hitting the set tomorrow to interview guest star Scotty McCreery (American Idol) and the rest of the cast. Your questions can be sent to @kristindsantos via Twitter.
Olivia in Las Vegas, Nev.: I need Barney and Robin scoop from HIMYM!
Well, how are you feeling about Ted and Robin getting back together? Yeah, we don't like it either, but apparently that's not stopping Ted (Josh Radnor). In the Feb. 20 episode, Ted will confess his true feelings to Robin (Cobie Smolders), and just check out this photo! Is that an almost-kiss about to turn into a real kiss?
Brandon: Those HIMYM pictures you posted of Barney and Quinn did not make me happy! Are those two really going to date?
Full disclosure? We're both dreading and excited for Quinn's debut on HIMYM because although we are Barney-Robin shippers to the core, we love us some Becky Newton. Looking a few weeks ahead to the episode titled "Karma's A Bitch," creator Craig Thomas told us that it's where we see Barney (Neil Patrick Harris) "realize that he is really falling for her and we the audience know that she's kind of playing him a little bit." We'll see the duo in a strip club (where else?) and witness Quinn hustle some poor innocent fella into spending a small fortune on her while Barney is preoccupied with a previous conquest. But when we flat-out called Quinn the ol' B-word, Thomas was quick to correct us: "She's not so much bitchy as she has a twinkle in her eye." Hmmm…interesting.
Lisa in Thousand Oaks, Calif.: 30 Rock! I'm so glad it's back.
You said it! It feels like it's been off the air for years. We grabbed Judah Friedlander and John Lutz last night at the SAG Awards, who happily told us that 30 Rock has no repeats in the upcoming weeks. Praise Tina! Even better? "The Valentine's Day episode, which is in two weeks, is an hour episode," Friedlander says. "Lutz actually might get some action. I can't say too much, but Tracy and I actually help Lutz on Valentine's Day." Love is truly in the air for the TGS crew.
David: Is this Arrested Development on Netflix thing really happening or is it just another empty promise?
We swear on Buster's hook hand that it is happening. Well, we don't swear it. But writer Dean Lorey does! He wrote on his blog: "We're really doing this thing. Mitch Hurwitz, Jim Vallely and I are off writing the new season of Arrested to premiere on Netflix in 2013." And even more good news: Everybody is returning! "The original cast is back," Lorey writes. "We're shooting this year. I wish I could give more specifics but, for the moment, even the schedule is being kept under wraps." This calls for a celebratory chicken dance!
Pam: Scoop on Bones? Specifically about the cutest couple on TV?
Shhh! Are you trying to start a fan war? We assume you're talking about Bones and Booth (David Boreanaz), who are awfully cute, we agree with that. You know what's not cute? When some guy tries to come between the parents-to-be! This smooth talker will be all over Bones (Emily Deschanel) in an upcoming episode, but there's no need to fret: He's a 75 year-old murder suspect! Unless Bones is into older men, in which case we might have a problem.
Jamie in Anderson, S.C.: I'll take anything on the new season of Game of Thrones.
Alfie Allen played real coy at the SAG awards by only offering this:" I can tell you it's got a lot of dragons in it. It's got a lot of love and a lot of hate. But it's going to be epic." We then threatened him with our giant sword (we carry one to all award shows), and he finally dropped this little bit of info that was just a mean tease. "There's a scene in episode in ten which I'm very excited to see," he says with a giant smile on his face. Damn you, Theon Greyjoy!
Andrea in Eau Claire, Wisc: Scoop me some Suburgatory please!
There's gonna be a new architect, Jason, wandering the streets of Suburbia and believe us when we say: daaamn, he be fine! Apparently Dalia (Carly Chaikin) doesn't think that George (Jeremy Sisto) is good enough for her high-maintenance needs and brings in Jason for all her architectural needs.
