Matt's Inside Line: Scoop on Hawaii Five-0, Once, Bones, Revolution, The Newsroom and More
Will a Five-0 cop die hard? Does The Newsroom‘s Sloan have some season-ending sass to share? Will Revenge‘s Emily get a heavenly helper? Are two Once Upon a Time troublemakers in for a rude awakening? Read on for answers to those questions plus teases from other shows.
Do you think we could get some information on Hawaii Five-0‘s Chin and Danny and what they’re doing this season? –Chris
I can speak for at least the season premiere, in which Chin makes like John McClane to Henry Ian Cusick’s Hans Gruber, while Danny chooses perhaps the most inopportune time to open up to McGarrett about his Gabby/”L-word” dilemma. The season opener also features one of the least expected outcomes to a hostage scenario, Chi McBride like you’ve never seen him before (fashion-wise) and a moment where Steve forms at least one (“obvious”?) theory about his mom’s connection to Wo Fat.
Anything on this weekend’s Newsroom finale? Something on Will/Mac or even just confirmation of more sass from Sloan? –Steph
Our Kim Roots can confirm two things: There’s tons of sass from the alluring Ms. Sabbith, who gets to the bottom of her book mystery in a very satisfying way, and several huge moments between Will and Mac — at least one of which includes mention of the Tiffany’s ring Will bought last season.
Anything on the upcoming season of Revenge? The new promo has me feeling positive! –Drew
James LeGros’ holy man will play a key role in Emily’s latest takedown plot. “There’s an element to which the nature of him being a priest puts him up against the concept of what is good and what is right and what is the moral thing to do,” previews showrunner Sunil Nayar of the arc. “And that, in turn, let’s us examine Emily Thorne’s mandate in a way we haven’t had a chance to do before.”
I have question about Revenge‘s Season 3: Is Henry Cherny (Conrad) still a series regular? –Chris
He absolutely is!
This fall on Once Upon a Time, will we find out who Greg and Tamara’s mystery employer is? –Katie
Who or what the “Home Office” is “is something you’ll learn very quickly — within the first two acts of the (Sept. 29) premiere,” series cocreator Eddy Kitis assures. Plus, as Rumple hinted in the finale, Tamara and Greg are about to realize themselves that they are but mere pawns in a big, very dangerous game.
Once Red John is revealed on The Mentalist, doesn’t the whole reason for the series end? The basic premise is that Patrick Jane is working with the CBI so he can find Red John. Once that’s done, what else is there? – Michael
Where you see an “end,” a very exciting new beginning awaits, I am assured. Using his Ahab/Moby Dick analogy, show boss Bruno Heller says, “[Jane] has been out at sea hunting this creature for so long, I think people will want to know what happens to him after that. Does he live happily ever after? What happens when you’ve been searching for something as long as he has? And we are going to get into that. It would be cheating the audience not to tell them what happens after.”
Can I have a Bones spoiler on Angela and Hodgins? –Tori
Michaela Conlin foresees “an interesting year” ahead for the couple, as they deal with assorted strife. “We’re going to see some of Hodgins’ wealthy family, which owns the whole Jeffersonian. And I hear someone from his past is going to resurface,” the actress shares. And on top of that, “They’re still dealing with the lack of their fortune” — a matter which Hodgins and Finn’s hot sauce endeavor might somewhat abate.
