I'm so excited for Castle, but I am so afraid the show will break them up soon. Got anything to make me feel better? — Erin
ADAM: Creator Andrew W. Marlowe promises there will be an "interesting honeymoon period," during which the new couple will feel each other out about how "real" the relationship is. (We said feel each other out, pervs.) But yes, there will be obstacles — most notably Capt. Gates and that little NYPD rule about partners not being romantically involved.
Got any more scoop on Grey's Anatomy? —Sarah
NATALIE: The arrival of new docs (Camilla Luddington and Gaius Charles) will facilitate the transition of Meredith, Cristina et. al. from residents to attendings. "One of the things I want to see our attendings do is teach and that's what we're seeing," executive producer Shonda Rhimes tells us.
Have you heard anything more about the Tony-Ziva elevator scenes coming up on NCIS? — Kristin
ADAM: I have. "The elevator scenes are so good," executive producer Gary Glasberg says. But more importantly, post-bombing trauma may bring the duo closer than ever before. "[Tony and Ziva] can't help but be affected by this in a certain way, and they will continue to reach out to each other because of the connection they have as friends and as coworkers," Glasberg says. "There are definitely 'moments.' I'd like to take things a little further along than we have [in the past]."
Now that Elena is going to be a vampire on The Vampire Diaries, who (or what) will she feed on first? — Amy
NATALIE: Elena will of course struggle with this decision. "How she gets blood is going to be one of the big problems," showrunner Julie Plec tells us. But once she does, in the umpteenth Damon-vs.-Stefan choice that Elena has had to make, she will then choose the perfectly formed wrists of Ian Somerhalder to make her meal. Suffice it to say, Stefan will be mighty pissed by that turn of events.
I might be the only one, but I am sad about Hotch and Beth's breakup on Criminal Minds. How will it affect Hotch? — Stephanie
ADAM: Cheer up, Stephanie! Although Bellamy Young, who plays Beth, will have a limited presence on Minds this season since she's just been made a series regular on ABC's Scandal, executive producer Erica Messer assures us that Hotch isn't in for more heartbreak. "She will be back to answer why she won't be around for a little while," she says. "We have her for three episodes, so we want to use her and explain what's going on between them. [But] they're not breaking up." Feel better?
Dexter scoop, please! — Sammie
NATALIE: Once Dexter finds the hand from the Ice Truck Killer case that Louis sent him, he'll really want to know who knows his secret. "Dexter is wondering if there's someone else on to him," executive producer Scott Buck tells us. "If so, why did this person send this? This, in so many ways, becomes more vital than even Deb [knowing]. For the first few episodes, that becomes a big drive to find out where this came from and what it could possible mean." Adds Michael C. Hall: "Dexter underestimated just how much of a blow it was when he rejected Louis' game. He will come to appreciate that he's created a bit of a monster by rejecting him so forcefully."
