Question: Is Puck ever going to get a real storyline again on Glee? It feels almost like he’s been completely written off the show and he’s my favorite. —Sarah
Ausiello: Funny you should ask. Word on the street is he plays a significant part in the episode that is currently shooting. (Hint: We’ll get answers to the questions, “Where is he living?” and “What’s the deal with him and Kitty?”)
Question: Any interesting Glee news you can share with us? —Sebastian
Ausiello: Does the prospect of Coach Roz wresting control of the Cheerios from Sue sound interesting?
Question: Do you have any scoop on Castle‘s 100th episode? —Kathrin
Ausiello: It airs Monday and “there’s a lot of Castle/Beckett fun,” previews series creator Andrew Marlowe. “It does focus on aspects of their relationship, but what we wanted to deliver is something that was classic Castle and Beckett. Something that felt like it could have played in [the] first season, or now. We were looking for something that was really quintessential, and we were really excited to have found it.” And perhaps on a related note — or quite possibly not! — Jon Huertas teases, “There’s some lingerie” featured in the milestone outing. “It’s not on Esposito this time, but there’s some sexy attire. And there might even be a celebration.”
Question: Aus, come on. It’s the final season and you’re showing no love to Spartacus! —Naazneen
Ausiello: Jupiter frak me, you’re right. Apologies. Hopefully this will make up for lost time: In next Friday’s penultimate episode (this Friday is a recap special, FYI) Spartacus (the character and the show) pays glorious tribute to Crixus and, at the same time, introduces a much-despised character to the mystical power known known as Karma.
Question: I’m crushed about 90210 being cancelled, and the only thing that would mend my broken heart is a Silver and Dixon reunion. Will my heart be forever broken, or is it a possibility that these two find their way back in the end? —Natalie
Ausiello: All I’ll say is that at least two of the show’s star-crossed duos will reunite in the May 13 series finale — with one of those couples getting full-on engaged. Also, rumor has it much of the swan song revolves around the aftermath of an explosion.
Question: Is Jenna back for good on Pretty Little Liars? An what about Shana — is she around for a bit? —Lori
Ausiello: According to exec producer Oliver Goldstick, “You’ll see both around,” adding, “We saw [in last week's finale] that they’re a weird trio, like Macbeth’s witches, with Melissa and Jenna and Shana plotting. So the four girls start Season 4 questioning what the alliance is between those three. Is one of them actually giving orders to the others? What bonds them besides their antipathy toward Alison and the Liars?”
Question: Is Colton Haynes really gone from Teen Wolf? If so, are they going to recast the part? –Kriselda
Ausiello: Now that Haynes has been upped to a series regular for Arrow Season 2, his days as Jackson are definitley over. And while there was talk that his character would be killed off for the Season 3 premiere (airing June 3), Haynes himself has heard nothing to that effect. “I don’t know, actually,” he tells us. “I’m still really good friends with everybody, and I’m sure that [showrunner] Jeff [Davis] and all the writers, whichever way they go [with Jackson], it will be epic and true to the show. I think that Jackson will always be alive, somehow. Whether they kill him or not, Jeff will find a way where everybody is happy.”
Question: Veep‘s second season is right around the corner — got any new intel? —Beth
Ausiello: Anna Chlumsky’s chief of staff is getting a new love interest and he’s going to look a lot like onetime Office worker Zach Woods (Gabe).
Question: Any scoop on the New Girl finale? —Amber
Ausiello: I have three little nuggets of info for you: The episode is cheekily titled “Downton Abbey Christmas Special” (a nod to the fact that Fox tacked on an extra “bonus” ep to its Season 2 order), it takes place on Cece’s wedding day, and it features a guest appearance by a living, breathing, out-of-control badger. I kid you not.
