Matt's Inside Line: Scoop on Burn Notice, Arrow, Bones, Revolution, Grimm, H50, Once and More
Did Bones‘ Booth leave two women scorned? Will Burn Notice leave you with heartbreak? Will Arrow‘s Felicity be flying without a net? Did the Revolution wipe out the entire Friends cast?! Read on for answers to those questions plus teases from other shows.
Got anything on the final episodes of Burn Notice? Will Mike and Fi end up together? –Bergs
In addition to what I served up here, there’s this special delivery scoop from series creator Matt Nix: “Without being coy, I think that fans of Michael and Fiona will experience the full range of emotions over these last two episodes. Nothing has ever been easy for them, and I think it’s fitting that it’s not easy at the end. For me, it’s always been less about depicting a happy relationship than about showing two people who love each other very much and are struggling to find a way to reconcile that love with who they are. There will be a lot of worrying and fingernail biting over the course of these two episodes, but… I don’t think I’ll be getting hate mail from the romantics in the audience at the end of the day.”
Do you have any scoop on Bones? Some vague teases about the premiere, maybe? –Amelia
My middle name is Vague Teasers! (Don’t tell my mom; she thinks it’s her maiden name.) The premiere opens three months later, with Booth making a confession. You’ll then in short order glean that A) Booth really, really, really wants to kill Pelant, B) Brennan isn’t the only casualty of The Lie (wittle Christine misses her daddy, too!) and Freddie Prinze Jr. is all growed up. (I know, he was on 24 and all, but the boyishness seems to be all gone. He’s a man, baby.)
Please find out any piece of scoop you can about Season 3 of New Girl! –Kas
I’ll place this Q under the Bones one, for a reason. When Jess’ hellion of a sister turns up in early 2014, she will “add a depth charge in the fabric of the loft,” previews exec producer Brett Baer. There’s also a chance she’ll look a lot like Zooey Dechanel’s real-life sis, Emily. Not a great chance, mind you. But a chance nonetheless. “It’s an idea that is obviously right in front of us and it’s definitely something to explore,” concedes exec producer Dave Finkel. “But [Emily] has her own television show, so we’re not sure if it’s even a possibility.”
Could we please have some scoop on Arrow‘s Felicity? Of the kick-ass variety, please? –Tammy
Here it is, specially requested for you, from EP Andrew Kriesberg: “Felicity will find herself in a situation in which a parachute would certainly have come in handy!” Gulp.
Please, please, please (with a Snapple-flavored cherry on top), tell me there is something resembling a scooplet out there for Season 2 of Revolution! P.S. Your site is amazing. I visit every day! –Jen
Snapple? This Q may have been meant for “the other guy,” but Imma gonna hook you up regardless. I watched the Season 2 premiere and it’s a pretty impressive “reset” for the series, picking up many months later but (almost too) regularly filling in blanks via flashbacks. As we catch up with the crew, you’ll see that two of ‘em are living under pseudonyms, two are gettin’ some (in some cases from strangers) and — perhaps the most celebrated scoop of all — Aaron has finally groomed his beard. You’ll also learn that one of the major players was Goth as a teen, there’s a White House cameo, and its is revealed – no joke — which Friends cast member was the sole survivor of all that’s happened. P.S. If you have any aversion to unabashedly sweaty and shirtless David Lyons scenes, do not tune in.
