Zachary Levi (Chuck), Matthew Fox (Lost), Sendhil Ramamurthy (Heroes)


Yay, the Spoiler Chat is back! Does this not just make your

No? Not even a little bit? Well, I for one am thrilled to be back answering your questions, with my ass firmly planted in my E! office seat, and to have TCA and Comic-Con behind us. The past few weeks were a blast, but we also worked our asses off—to the point where I'm surprised I had anything left to bump with Josh Jackson the other day (highlight of my

We have some catching up to do, and some spoilers to spill, so let's hit it...

Rebecca in New Orleans: Kristin, any more dish from Pushing Daisies? They were at Comic-Con, right?
Yes, and I'll be bringing you some divine interviews with the cast just as soon as our magical elves get it up on the site. In the meantime, the producers told me they loved David Arquette so much they are working on making him a recurring character, bringing him back again for the ninth episode. Apparently, he totally rocks as Ned's new best friend. Also, Broadway legend Debra Mooney (Everwood's Edna!) has been cast as Emmerson Cod's (Chi McBride) mother. And yes, last I checked she was still white!

Nancy in Bethesda, Md.: Kristin, I'm so jealous you met up with Matthew Fox! What can you tell me about Lost's new season? Any hope for Jack and Kate? Will everyone really be separated this season?

Jamie Bamber, Battlestar Galactica

Keep reading down to the spoiler zone!

Mena in Los Angeles: I just read that Battlestar Galactica will air its "final, final" season in January. Any hints on what to expect?
I can tell you that when I asked Jamie Bamber about the last 10 episodes, he was positively effusive. This wasn't just an actor reading his lines flogging the show—he was truly in awe of the final three eps. According to Jamie: "They're amazing. Ron's finale is just sensational. All I can say is they're well-deserving of being the last episodes of Battlestar Galactica." So excited! Also, by the by, Jamie's wife is just about the coolest girl you could ever meet. She's the kind of girl who tells you that you have something in your teeth before you interview her husband and helps you get it out...(Not that that happened to me or anything. No thireee! Wait, thorry...need to get this rathpberry theed out of my teeth...No siree!)

Ashley in Fullerton, Calif.: I love the idea of Nancy and Andy together on Weeds, any chance that is ever going to happen?
Though Nancy will be tied up with her drug kingpin this season, Justin Kirk told me there are going to be a lot more hints at a Nancy-Andy love connection. "I used to say that I thought it was inappropriate for that to happen, but I don't feel that way anymore," added Kirk. Why not keep it in the family, eh?

Hailee in Richmond Hill, N.Y.: I just saw that Jason O'Mara got his own TV show. Does that mean he's never going to be on The Closer again?
Actually, I caught up with Jason, and there's a very good chance he'll be lighting fires again over on TNT. O'Mara said, "It's been left open-ended for a reason." It did look like there was a little love connection between Billy (O'Mara) and Brenda (Kyra Sedgwick), in that he's a screwed-up serial killer and she's a deputy chief. I think they really have a chance!

Beatriz in Belmopan, Belize: Do you have job? I seek work in your country.
Well, let's see, are you tall, skinny, unblemished and just a little bit insane? Then have I do have job for you: America's Next Top Model. They are holding auditions for Cycle 12 starting Aug. 9 in Albuquerque, N.M. Check out the CW website for more deets.

Spoilers: Spoiler Line: Do Not Cross


Wendy in Singapore: Kristin, thank you for all the Comic-Con reporting. Do you have any other Lost stuff? Especially about Kate seeing Sawyer again?
Actually, I just heard from a reliable source what the new nonflash story structure is supposed to be for season five, and here's what I can tell you:

  1. What my source told me seems to jibe perfectly with everything we've heard straight from the mouths of Damon and Carlton at TCA and Comic-Con
  2. It could be incredibly confusing
  3. Think about the Jin and Sun episode from last season.

In particular, this new story structure (which we'll discuss more as it gets closer to the new season) seems to ease my biggest fear about season five: separated characters and character groups. So before the secret gets out and everyone starts bitching about the confusing part, I'd like to say thanks, writers, for listening to us fans about wanting to see our faves continue to share adventures. Cheers.

Halo in St. Paul, Minn.: I would love to hear something about Heroes!
How about some Mohinder dish? As was revealed in the Comic-Con screening of the season premiere, Mohinder (Sendhil Ramamurthy) is getting powers, and I can tell you that the powers you see exhibited at the end of the finale are not the end of the story. Before too long we'll see him exhibit a nifty power that he shares with one of the top five comic-book superheroes of all time. Care to guess which hero and which power? (Here's a hint: Homer Simpson had a pig version.)

Lucy Lawless, Battlestar Galactica

Justin Stephens/Sci Fi Channel

Augusta in Phoenix: Missing Battlestar Galactica real bad. Any scoop to tide me over?
I'm hearing that they leave Three (Lucy Lawless) behind on Earth. Why they leave Earth and what this means for the rest of the gang, I do not know. However, wouldn't it be cool if Earth Three found some nice young apocalypse survivor to settle down with and the two of them turned out to be Adam and Eve of this here human race?

Tessa in Albuquerque, N.M.: Kristin, thanks for the Chuck scoop from Comic-Con! The panel was amazing, but I have to ask: Who is doing the same-sex kissing this season?! They never said!
Yeah, and I'm not really sure I was supposed to let that cat out of the bag, but I can tell you that the two kissers are the fine (and I do mean fi-yeene) fellas who got the most raucous applause during the panel. A little Adam Baldwin and Zachary Levi tonsil hockey anyone? Obviously, the way in which this happens is not anywhere near a blossoming romance, but it is hot and ridiculous and hilarious, and I think you're gonna love it, along with all the rest of the goodness for the new season! By the way, if you want the full Chuck panel from Comic-Con, it is here. And thanks to all of you who attended!

Heath in Boston: So excited about meeting the Awesomes this season on Chuck. But are Ellie and Awesome really going to make it to the altar?
This coming season will not be all smiles, so Captain Awesome is going to head to the most and least likely person for advice on Ellie. Any guesses as to who he turns to?

Mischa in Mendocino, Calif.: I love Dexter! Can I please get a little scoop on the rest of the boys on there?
Masuka (C.S. Lee) and Batista (David Zayas) are finally going to get some real love! With each other? Ummm...probably not, but we shall see.

Alison in Jackson, Tenn.: I'm in need of some killer scoop on everyone's favorite and hottest serial killer, Dexter Morgan.
According to Dexter boss Clyde Phillips, "We're introducing a new character named Joey Quinn, played by Desmond Harrington, who is a Northeastern transplant with a New York accent who looks nothing like anyone in Florida. He comes over from narcotics. By the time we pick up the season, he's been there for a couple of weeks, and I.A. [internal affairs] is sniffing around him for various interesting reasons, and he partners up with Deb." Could this be Deb's new honey? What do you think?

Kate Walsh, Private Practice


Marcia in Sao Paulo, Brazil: Is Private Practice coming back? Any news on my beloved Addison?
Yes, I'm hearing that Addison will be tangling with Dr. Charlotte King a lot this season. And if I had to bet, I'd also say Charlotte and Cooper (Paul Adelstein) are also still a thing. Said KaDee Strickland, "If you like our chemistry, I think you're going to love watching us this year. We're having a blast." Whoo, hot doctor sex in the grand tradition of the Shonda-verse.

Natalia in King of Prussia, Pa.: I might be the only one, but I'm really craving some new Private Practice episodes. Got any scoop to tide me over, especially about my beloved boy Dell?
According to Chris Lowell, "They're digging up a lot of Dell's past. Around episode six or seven we start seeing people come out of the woodwork from ancient Dell times who may or may not have been romantically affiliated with him in the past."

Jen in St. Paul, Minn.: I am loving this season of Burn Notice. Are Fiona and Michael really done for good?
I think long-term, they'll be together. Short-term? Well, according to Matt Nix, "As much  as Fiona would like to say she could be with anybody, she can't. And as much as Michael's head is telling him that they have no business being together, that's very difficult for him. A lot of the season is exploring the implications of that." So, basically, they're totally going to end up married with 12 spy babies...but just not until the end of the show. So very Syd and Vaughn!

Wentworth Miller

Jeffrey Mayer/

Serena in Great Neck, N.Y.: Any Prison Break dish?
I'm hearing that vixen Gretchen (Jodi Lynn O'Keefe) may be getting a little tortured this season. Or possibly a lot tortured. Any comment from the Prison Break peanut gallery on that? Also, I caught part of the Prison Break panel at Comic-Con (before I had to run to another commitment), and they showed the first five minutes or so of the season premiere, in which Gretchen tells Michael that Sara is alive. (She's aaaliiiive!) So it all does go down very fast, and it looks like the lovely Dr. Tancredi will be reunited with the lovely Michael "Hot Pants" Scofield in no time flat. (P.S.: Wentworth Miller wasn't able to make the panel because he was working, and I swear you could hear the collective heartbreak of the crowd—including the girls sitting on each other's laps right next to me in order to squeeze in to see him—when that sad news was announced.)

Emily in San Diego: I heard there are tons of superheroes heading toward Smallville this season. What can you dish?
Aquaman, Black Canary and Green Arrow will be on the hunt to find the missing Clark, and further down the road, I've heard we'll be introduced to a few more supers from the future Justice League. Justin Hartley also told me he's going to have a new love interest this season, but the Lois Lane/Oliver Queen relationship is not dead at all. I smell love triangle!

Courteney Cox, Dirt

Michael Becker / FX

Thomas in New Jersey: Do you know anything more about what Courteney Cox is playing on Scrubs?
She's the new Kelso, and just like him, she'll be rocking her sexy legs on camera! According to Sarah Chalke, they are really slutting up C.C. for the role: "Courteney is playing the chief of medicine, and she is in a little black skirt and four-inch heels. We took a tape measure and measured her heels. I told our show runner Bill Lawrence, 'You see, this is how you have to dress if you want to be a good doctor!' Courteney's hysterical; she's a riot. We're so lucky to get her for three episodes. I hope she comes back and does more."

Melanie in Winter Garden, Fla.: What is going on with 24? I miss Jack & Co.
I can offer a little scoop from Kurtwood Smith, who is a recurring character this season. He said, "I'm doing what I think is six episodes [this season]. I'm in the first episode, and then I don't come back until episode 10. I'm a U.S. senator, and the first episode is in a hearing room—where I'm grilling Jack—and then a good deal of the rest of it takes place in the White House, and what we're shooting this week is my last big scene, and it's just Kiefer and I. It's a very interesting scene. It really addresses the argument between my character and Kiefer's attempt at justifying what he has to do." Kurtwood Smith vs. Kiefer Sutherland? Awesome.

Stephanie in Anaheim Hills, Calif.: Are there any other old 90210ers coming back for the remake?
It looks like there is a twist at the end of the pilot for Jennie Garth’s character that leads us to believe she may be dating or possibly married to one of the boys. Here’s hoping it’s Luke Perry!

Allie in Arcadia, Calif.: The new cast of 90210 is so hot! Please give me some scoop on those boys!
They are nice to look at, aren't they? We'll actually get a little more hotness, as it looks like new It boy Michael Steger from 90210 will be guesting on Criminal Minds in the Sept. 10. premiere. Yay! In other Michael news, I'm told that his 90210 character, Navid, comes from an entertainment-industry family that is "filthy rich," and according to Michael himself, "I'm supposed to have this gorgeous mom, and my house is enormous—they're giving me the biggest home out of anybody. And I might test-drive a Lamborghini next week. Maybe. Just putting it out there..."

Brian Austin Green

Maury Phillips/

Marshall in Kentucky: Kristin, thanks for all the great scoop from Comic-Con! I was hoping for more from the Terminator show.
Yes, and just for you, it is of the steamy variety! A source on the show told me "We are casting a female resistance fighter who will burn up the sheets with Brian Austin Green." By the by, producer Josh Friedman told the Comic-Con panel he had no faith in Brian being the right choice when he came in for the audition, but was so blown away he made the decision right there on the spot to offer him the role. Also, I asked Brian if he might come on the new 90210 and he said "I'm on Terminator, Monday night on Fox!" Clearly was not about answering that question in any way or form. Hmm...So maybe David Silver is the aforementioned boy returning? What do you think? Possible in any way?
