Question: What’s going to happen with Auggie and Annie on Covert Affairs? —Alex
Ausiello: Chris Gorham recently told TVLine that Auggie and Annie are going to have that conversation — and now I can tell you when: the Nov. 20 season finale. It’s “a real game-changer” for the pair, Gorham teases, and “it changes everything.” And if you enjoyed the increase in serialized storylines this season, you’re in luck. ”That’s definitely going to continue,” he promises. “This season, it ended up being a 11-episode arc, and then a five-episode arc. Next season, what they’re talking about is having one long arc for the entire season.”
Question: Supernatural scoop of any shape or form will be appreciated and endless gratitude will be given! —Lucy
Ausiello: Ty Olsson isn’t spilling about what, if any, role his character Benny played in Cas not getting out of purgatory, but viewers will “get a little bit of information” about their unique dynamic. “It’s a fun, little relationship,” he shares. “I think the audience will enjoy it. There’s a bit of a third wheel thing that happens between Castiel and Dean and Benny.”
Question: Ben’s proposal to Leslie on Parks and Recreation were the greatest two minutes of my life! What’s next for the funniest couple in Pawnee?—Hilla
Ausiello: She’s gonna meet his (divorced) parents, played by Breaking Bad‘s Jonathan Banks and ER‘s Glenne Headly. “It’s a very contained episode,” previews exec producer Mike Schur of the outing, which will now air next Thursday. “We wanted to put them all in a pressure cooker and leave them there for 20 minutes — and it turned out really well!” Adds Adam Scott of TV dad Banks: “I love the idea of Ben’s father being a little terrifying. It fits in really well with the character of Ben. And Jonathan is hilarious.” (BTW, Hilla, I was about to tell you what a sad little existence you must have but then I realized they were the two greatest minutes of my life, too. Just kidding. My life isn’t that lame.)
Question: Anything about Glee, please?! —Amanda
Ausiello: Stop me if you heard this one before: Finn is going to fill in for D.C.-bound Mr. Schue as choir director for a few episodes. “We sort of shake up the glee club a little bit,” teases exec producer Brad Falchuk. “What always works on this show is when people are the underdogs. So, how do we make [New Directions] underdogs again? Well, obviously, you clear out a lot of the people who were the top dogs. But also you have a new person coaching them going into Sectionals that doesn’t know what he’s doing. This is all new to him. It seemed like a way to freshen up things a little bit.”
Question: I mean, I love Happy Endings and all. It’s one of my favorite comedies right now. But I am really tired of you dispensing Happy Endings scoops instead of what people are actually looking for. First there was a question about Max Adler’s character on Glee, then the Doctor Who thing… I would have liked an answer for both of those questions instead of being teased. So, since it seems like you are just fishing for people to ask — got any scoop on Happy Endings? —Megan
Ausiello: If I’ve told you once, I’ve told you 6 million times — there are no plans for Max Adler to return to Glee at this time. But if it’s a Glee scoop you want, it’s a Glee scoop you’ll get: The show’s Thanksgiving episode finds much of the original crew getting together at BreadstiX for a reunion — but two notable alums are MIA: Kurt and Rachel. Will they put in an appearance? Will they blow them off? I can confirm that it’s either the first one or the second one.
Question: Please share anything you can about what’s going on with Kurt and Blaine on Glee! —Joey
Ausiello: Blaine keeps texting him. Kurt keeps ignoring those texts. That’s about it.
Question: Quick — your three favorite shows and the three most disappointing shows this fall (doesn’t matter if they are new or returning). —JJ
Ausiello: Three faves: American Horror Story: Asylum, Homeland and The Walking Dead. Most disappointing: Saturday Night Live, RuPaul’s All-Stars Drag Race and Gossip Girl.
