Adam Scott, Amy Poehler, Park and Recreation

Oh, Ben and Leslie of Parks and Recreation, we haven't adored a workplace romance so much since the days of Jim (John Krasinski) and Pam (Jenna Fischer).

So now that you two are blissfully in love, only happy times ahead, right?

Of course not. It wouldn't be television without some kind of problem getting in the way of eternal Parks Department love! Oh, cruel plot lines! Why do you do this to us?

Guess that's just what happens during finale time, and we have to accept lots of heartbreak, heartaches and maybe even some heartburn up ahead. Which category do your favorite TV couples fall into? And what's coming up for just renewed Happy Endings? All those answers, plus scoop on Glee, Modern Family, Pretty Little Liars, and so much more in this week's Spoiler Chat…

Sean in Santa Monica: It's upfronts week! You guys are all over it, right?
And how! Our team will be working frantically, tirelessly, and a bit crazily to bring you all the updates and news directly from New York. @JenniferArrow will be live-tweeting all the network presentations, and our upfronts section will be jam-packed full of videos, breaking news, and interviews from network TV's big week. We hope you guys enjoy, because this time of year pretty much kicks the crap out of us.

One Tree Hill, Sophia Bush, Austin Nichols

Michael Desmond /The CW

brenny5: Is One Tree Hill coming back for a 9th season?
This will be the week we find out for sure, but we'd go as far as to say that we would be surprised if the CW didn't give them at least another 13 episodes next season. Keep those fingers, toes and everything else crossed in the meantime!

Lovetolaughlc: Will they find a replacement for Michael on The Office before the season is over?
Of course they will. But the real question is: when do we get to find out who's filing Michael Scott's shoes? And according to chairman of NBC Bob Greenblat, the identity of the new boss will not be revealed before the finale. Looks like we'll find out live, along with the rest of the world.

Deirdre__K: Any news on how final season of Entourage is shaping up?
We were on set for the shooting of a particularly awesome episode, so we'll have plenty of scoop on the guys closer to the season eight premiere on July 24.

Spoilers: Spoiler Line: Do Not Cross

Kasey: Best couple on TV: Ben and Leslie from Parks and Rec. Agree? Now tell me they live happily ever after!
Definitely agree! Did you jump out of your chair when Ben (Adam Scott) and Leslie (Amy Poehler) finally stopped dancing around and locked lips? We didn't know Ben had it in him…that was a steamy kiss! And those two definitely keep it hot this week because now they get to sneak around. Until someone spots them mid-makeout. And the person who discovers their little secret, while not exactly an important figure in the Parks Department, still manages to wreak some havoc while harboring the secret. Let's just say he or she sets off a pretty damaging chain reaction.

OnlyMaryMary: Parks and Recreation finale scoop? Last week's double-header was epic. Thanks!
Nick Offerman
is preparing fans for the worst on this week's finale. "There is going to be an event so traumatic in our finale that there will probably be school closings on Friday and black sheets will be hung from the windows of tenement buildings across the nation," he tells us. "I think urban areas will shut down their transit lines at the devastating affect of what goes down in our finale. It's going to be a very special Parks and Recreation." Wow, talk about your major bummers. Anything else? "I will just add there are four huge cliffhangers. {Executive producer) Mike Schur said he learned from (The Office EP) Greg Daniels that it's really fun with a season finale to write yourself into the most incredibly tight corner that you can, because then you have the whole summer to figure out how to get out of that corner," Nick says. "So they are really setting themselves up for an explosive season four."

Jacob in Palm Springs: PREX PLEASE!
The death of a beloved Pawnee resident (see Nick's comment above) leads to a big memorial service that almost puts the Harvest Festival to shame. Speaking of the Harvest Festival, remember how awesome Leslie was while putting that together? Some higher-ups sure noticed, and they come looking for Ms. Knope. Plus, Tom (Aziz Ansari) makes an important business decision…and it involves a former NBA star. Yeah, you read that right.

Nerd_AgentSadie: Chuck finale. Please!
Wanna see Captain Awesome (Ryan McPartlin) and Morgan (Joshua Gomez) team up for some ass-kicking? Of course you do! And it's all yours to gloriously witness in the finale.

Courteney Cox, Josh Hopkins, Cougar Town


Jamie_2593: Is it all piña coladas and sun in the Cougar Town finale?
Whenever show runners set an episode in a tropical location we naturally have to question if it was really for the story or if they just figured out a way to get the studio to fund a trip to Hawaii. Fortunately for us, the Cougar Town finale has a great locale and great story. Win-win. Despite the romance and giant cocktails, some big issues arise for a certain couple: the ticking clock of parenthood hits someone surprisingly the hardest.

Marion: I love Happy Endings, what's next?
We love this show too and are thrilled it's getting a season two, so in this very special case we are willing to suspend disbelief at the sometimes wonky timeline. This week's episode, which was so clearly meant to air early in the season, is like one giant flashback. Like Dave (Zachary Knighton) is moving in with Max (Adam Pally) early. We suggest you just go with it.

Tess: Happy Endings! Please tell me I'm not imagining the spark between Alex and Dave.
You are not imagining it—unless we are imagining it as well. But it's there for sure in the season finale when Alex (Elisha Cuthbert) admits some lingering feelings for Dave and seriously questions her hasty runaway bride decision. Hopefully next season we'll get the opportunity to see if these crazy kids have a future together as more than friends.

JanEWallace28: Have you any more information on Rookie Blue in regards to Sam and Andy?
Andy (Missy Peregrym) may have moved in with her detective boyfriend, but guess who the first person to rush to Andy's side is when she is in grave danger? Also, Sam (Ben Bass) is clearly shaken up by her near death. Something else that might give your Samandy (or is it Andam?) shipping hearts hope: Luke's (Eric Johnson) ex-partner and ex-girlfriend is back in the picture.

AgentGurl008: Rookie Blue scoop?
Heads in a duffel bag. You're welcome.

Josh Charles, The Good Wife

Heather Wines/CBS

Meg__KC: The Good Wife finale won't be rainbows and roses as the promo is making it out to be right? Tell me ish is about to go down!
How boring would it be if The Good Wife finale was all happy times and lovefests? Of course, it's not. So when we talked to Josh Charles, we asked what he could tell us about the finale. And then we begged. And then we flat-out threatened him for scoop. But that dude wasn't budging! Well, he did a just a wee bit. "I can tell you this: I am really excited about the episode. It is a great case," Josh tells us. "All I can say is that I think [the finale] is a strong one and I think it will really have people talking and it really leads us nicely to begin the third season. And the possibilities are endless on where things can go and it's ripe with drama, conflict and intrigue. I think it will be fun to see… well I cannot really say what happens." Almost got him. Damn you, Charles!

HauntedTimes: Can you tell us what Chase fans can expect from the upcoming House episodes?
What's worst way to tell your coworkers that you were in the big house? Chase (Jesse Spencer) will find that out when Thirteen (Olivia Wilde) asks him to save a life/harbor a fugitive. But expect Chase to stick by his morals despite the desperate situation.

emily051193: HOUSE!!!!
Heed our warning: Do not eat while watching the next episode of House. After hundreds of hours of CSI, Grey's Anatomy and Bones, we consider ourselves pretty well versed in gruesome TV but nothing can prepare you for what Dr. Insane does to himself. Shudder. Honestly, we're feeling a little queasy just thinking about it.

FanShelby: Do you think Chase & Thirteen on House will hook up? Do you think there is a chance? They sure would be one hot couple!
We've actually been rooting for these two beautiful specimens to hook up since the first time they had a scene together…even back in the Chase-Cameron days! We have hope for these two. There is definitely a foundation being built for Chase and Thirteen to eventually find themselves in couplesville. Will they ever get there? C'mon, they're too hot not to!

KelsoRose: what's going on with The Secret Life of an American Teenager?
Lots of wedding craziness! Ken Baumann and Francia Raisa tells us that two teenagers planning a wedding brings on more drama than they could ever imagine. "It's a big episode and it really sets the tone for the rest of the season," Francia reveals.

Molly: Is it still raining on The Killing? Just kidding, what's coming up?
Papa Larsen (Brent Sexton) has a pretty nefarious past—remember how Bennett Ahmed (Brandon Jay McLaren) barely survived his last encounter with the grieving father? Well, he might not be as lucky the second time around.  P.S. Forecast calls for more rain in Seattle.

Glee, Cory Monteith, Lea Michele

ipreferfiction: In love with the new Finchel duet, "Pretending," from the finale. Rumor is that Finn wrote it for Rachel. True? Big moment for them?
Great song, right? We can't confirm or deny that Finn (Cory Monteith) wrote it for Rachel (Lea Michele), but we can definitely confirm that it's a big moment for them. One of many big moments during the finale, in fact.

taylor_b22: Can we get another cryptic Finchel clue? Pretty please!
Really? A cryptic one? We were totally going to tell you every little detail about Finn and Rachel in the finale, but since you want it to be cryptic…you got it! Two words: Dream. Date.

m83fan: Any Santana scoop? Is she going to come out of the closet anytime soon?
We've got a good feeling that Santana (Naya Rivera) fans will love what's coming up for our favorite "straight up bitch" in the final two episodes. And yes, the whole closet situation will be addressed in some way.

Flankie: Can you say if Marshall and Lily are becoming parents on How I Met Your Mother?
"That will definitely be addressed in the season finale," Alyson Hannigan tells us. "This season they were trying and then Marshall's (Jason Segel) dad passed away and so that changed everything. It was a big game changer and he's still reeling from that and sort of coming to terms for what that means for his future. The focus will shift again back to that issue and it will be addressed in the season finale." We're going to start picking our Erikson baby names just to be safe!

Kristen in Canton, Ohio: Anything, and I mean anything, about the wedding in the season finale of HIMYM. I'm dying here!
We won't have to wait much longer for the answer, right? But we found this little tidbit from Alyson particularly interesting. "I know whose wedding it is. I know they bought a lot of the same dress. But I don't know if that means anything or not," she tells us coyly. Same dress? As in…bridesmaids dresses? Hmmm…

Britney in Chicago: Got anything on Pretty Little Liars?
After we made a joke about the major cliffhanger in the finale (get it?), Lucy Hale told us that the season two premiere picks up literally seconds after where the last episode left off. Lucy also revealed that one mystery will be solved by the fifth episode of the second season. Which one could it be?

Ty Burrell, Julie Bowen, Ariel Winter, Nolan Gould, Sarah Hyland, Modern Family

Eric McCandless/ABC

John: Modern Family finale scoop please!
Tell us what you think of when you hear the words: sailor, pigtails, wine, a tree house and a giant growling dog. In Modern Family it means a hilarious sibling bonding experience.

Sharon in Lansing, Mich.: Thanks for the 90210 scoop! Matt Lanter is such a cutie. Do you know what's coming up for Liam next season?
We asked Matt that very same question! Here's what he had to say about season four: "I would love to see how he makes his way into the "real" world.  He may not take the college route. He seems more comfortable in the blue collar world. Liam has always had a maturity about him, so he may even have an easier time transitioning into adulthood." Sounds like Liam will be all grown up next year!

Patricia: How scary is the new alter on United States of Tara?
Scary. Really scary. Tara's (Toni Collette) new alter is not to be messed around with, for reals. Bryce is shockingly dangerous for a lighthearted Showtime comedy and will not hesitate to get rid of anyone in his way. Alters, friends and family all need to be worried. The benefit of this twist for the viewers is that it makes for seriously compelling TV.

Melissa from Greenwich, Conn.: I don't know what I am going to do this summer without Raising Hope. Everytime I watch I am on the floor laughing! Can you tell me anything about the season finale?
You cannot miss the Raising Hope finale on May 17. We travel back five years only to be greeted by Jimmy's alter ego, Dakkar Noir (Lucas Neff). Think Marilyn Manson meets Bobo the Clown. Seriously, putting on makeup will never be the same again.

Kriziag: Warehouse 13 please! Especially anything regarding Myka's return to the warehouse! Thank you :)
Myka (Joanne Kelly) will definitely have some competition when it comes time for her to return to the warehouse. The very adorable Aaron Ashmore plays, "the new agent that's recruited from ATF because he has this ability to tell when people are lying." That seems like a pretty cool skill to have but Ashmore tells us, "other people don't appreciate it, like other characters." Sad face.
