How to get away with the best love triangle ever? Start it off with the third wheel already dead!
That's the pretty-dang-cool setup for ABC's How to Get Away With Murder, which will effectively end any shipper wars before they even begin, but we have inside scoop on how that dead man walking will still be very much a love triangle this season....Until, you know, the's gone for good.
Also, TVD fans, you aren't exicted about the return of The Vampire Diaries, are you? Mayhaps just a smidge? We've got some scoop for you here on what to expect when the show returns on Thursday (plus we'll have much more on premiere day from Julie Plec and Nina Dobrev).
It's your weekly roundup of TV scoop and spoilers...Dig in!
Brice: Love me some Matt McGorry and some How to Get Away With Murder…but didn't see his doucheface involved with the show's big murder and I need to know what the deal is!
A very valid question, one that we had too! "I think his involvement will be different than the other four," HTGAWM creator and showrunner Peter Nowalk told us. Expect to see what happened to all the characters on "the dark and stormy night"—the bonfire night—and that McGorry's Doucheface/Asher Millstone is "definitely interwoven into the fabric of the show."
Shawn: HTGAWM is already my new obsession and I cannot wait to see more. Please tell me I'll get to see Annalise's hot mantress Nate!
We will be seeing plenty of Annalise's relationships with both of her suitors leading up to her husband's shocking death. "We're going to basically go back and forth between the two times," creator Nowalk spilled. "We're going to go back to second week of school and we'll flash forward to that night and we'll see different pieces of that night until we piece the puzzle together of what happened." And you won't have to wait long for answers, as he said, "I think I want to get to the murder night sooner than end of season. We'll answer the question of how he ended up dead and who did it sometime in the first season and then we'll go a little bit beyond that. So she has a love triangle for much of the season."
Confession: I was the biggest Eureka fan, so I am so excited to see Colin Ferguson on TVD! What can we expect?
Just some male bonding between him and Matt Donovan! "He came about because we wanted to show Matt thriving in Mystic Falls without supernaturals," EP Caroline Dries previewed of Ferguson's character, Tripp. "We wanted to give him a father figure, coach-type of guy, so that's where Tripp come out of." Of course, this is The Vampire Diaries, so Tripp will have his secrets, but he'll "ultimately become an interesting, layered, dynamic character that's not necessarily good guy or bad guy."

Nikkiii0818: Any plans to have Gary Cole return this season as Mr. Lockhart?
We got so many questions about Gary Cole and Martha Plimpton returning to The Good Wife this year, we went straight to the top and Robert and Michelle King, The Good Wife co-creators, who said they would like to get them back. "Unfortunately, with those actors it comes down to availability," Michelle tells us. "Between Veep for Gary Cole and the fact that Martha Plimpton has been in a play in London, it just makes it tricky. But nothing would make us happier to see them again." Robert added, "We tried to get her for the first half of the season, but she was in London in a play and now she's in one locally, but when that gets out of previews and we can count on it, we'd love to have her back. And Gary Cole, obviously we always enjoy." For now you can look forward to Carrie Preston returning to The Good Wife as Elsbeth Tascioni for at least two episodes.
Vance: I need to know this: How do they get out of the train car in Terminus in The Walking Dead? Just tell me that and I'll never ask for anything again.
Well, you'll be able to ask for something again because we can't tell you that. What we can tell you is this: Carol is so awesome in this episode.
Carina: I don't know how I can keep watching Bones after that shocking death. I am still in shock and need to be prepared for what's next.
(Mandatory spoiler alert ahead!) Don't bother putting on mascara on Thursday because the fallout from Sweets' shocking death will be tear-inducing, especially an early scene involving Christine that might just shatter your hear (and Booth and Brennan's) hearts into a million pieces. And yes, there is a funeral for Sweets and it's beautiful and heartbreaking and devastating and comforting.
Mara: Grey's Anatomy scoop, please!
If you thought that Maggie's first day on the job with her newly-discovered half-sister Meredith could not have gone any worse, you're not alone. "I think if Maggie was day dreaming about it on the flight over, I think she was imagining hugs and embraces and tears and questions about where each other has been their whole lives," Kelly McCreary tells us. "She was hoping for something much more warm and fuzzy than what happened. She's majorly disappointed." In fact, don't expect these sisters-from-another-mister to start slamming back tequila shots with each other anytime soon, because it's going to be a while until they can be in the same room without screaming at each other…and that's a major problem, since they have to work together on a case this week! Yikes.
Farah: SVU is already so good this year. I can't wait to see another Fosters star pop up this week! Is it good?
Oh, it's good. Look for Teri Polo and Stacy Keach to steal the show away from your favorite detectives with a twisty case that's very reminiscent of a few recent headline-grabbing events. You'll go into this episode thinking one way and by the end of it, well…you need to see it.
Tom: You were so right about Robin Lord Taylor on Gotham! He's amazing as the Penguin. How long do we have to wait until he's back in the city to get his revenge?
As we all saw last night, Oswald Cobblepot is determined to make his way back to his city come hell or high water. And his return will come sooner than you expect! We're not exaggerating when we say that his big, grand entrance will make you scream. Out loud. At your TV. Warn your roommates and family members now, because you won't see it coming!
Nicole: Even though we all knew it was coming, Juliette being pregnant is still so shocking! Got any scoop on the who the baby daddy is?
When Nashville picks up this week, Juliette's determined to keep her pregnancy a secret…from everyone. In fact, she's so determined to keep the news from getting out that she actually considers taking drastic measures right away, and that drastic measure starts with "a." We won't say whether or not the country star goes through with that major decision, but viewers will finally get an answer to "Who's the daddy?" by the end of the episode.
Kelli: This final season of Parenthood may destroy me, but I want all the scoop anyway!
Keep restocking those tissues because the tears will keep on coming. "I have a scene with Zeek that was really, really poignant. I go over to his house and talk with him about being sick, feeling sick," Monica Potter told us, saying she had a hard time keeping it together during the scene. Yeah, not making us feel any better about all the death talk surrounding the Braverman clan.
Ginny: Blue Bloods is back and I am sooooo happy. I just want to wrap myself in Tom Selleck's 'stache. What should I look forward to?
Well, you might not look forward to this, but Linda will find herself in a bit of danger when something happens to her on the job. This doesn't sit well with Danny.
Rachel: What's the word on any female characters on Supernatural this season?
While females generally don't have the longest life span on this CW fan-favorite series, the show is currently casting the role of Claire Novak, a 17-year-old tough, angry teenager described as "punk-rock-pretty." Claire is sarcastic, smart and defiant because of her rough past: she has bounced from foster home to foster home since the death of her father and the disappearance of her mother (we're guessing from supernatural forces?). Even though Claire is always in trouble, underneath it all she has a big heart. Let's hope that heart makes her a survivor!
