Sara Colleton didn't say anything about Louis Greene. Do you have scoop for him on Dexter? — John Dexpert, via Twitter
NATALIE: Au contraire! The creeper who sent Dexter the hand from the Ice Truck Killer case will be back! "We realized that Louis has a whole darker side and people who become fans can turn into dangerous stalkers in the blink of the eye. That's what Louis has turned into," Colleton tells us. "[Dexter will] discover the Ice Truck Killer hand — he has no idea it's in his home — and what the writing on the palm of it means."
Got any new information on Jeanne Tripplehorn's character on Criminal Minds? — Cynthia
ADAM: Yep! Her name is Alex Blake and she's a seasoned FBI linguistics expert, who has some history with Reid. "People like Reid learned from [her]," executive producer Erica Messer tells us. "She is also a professor at Georgetown and Reid has guest-lectured at her forensic linguistics class before." And before you even ask, don't look for her to be striking up any interoffice romances. "She is in a relationship," Messer teases. "When you get your heroes involved romantically, it just changes the show so much. I feel pretty strongly about that as a rule."
What's coming up on Glee? — Nancy
NATALIE: Make way for the new Brittany! The producers are casting for a beautiful blond high schooler who knows how to dance. Considering Brittany didn't graduate, it sounds like she'll have some competition next season.
How will Bones bring Brennan back? How much can she do to clear her name while on the run? — Vanessa
ADAM: "[Brennan's] been gone, but she's been working," executive producer Stephen Nathan tells us. That said, she certainly can't do it alone. But good help might be hard to find... at first. "Cam ... and the Jeffersonian have to be completely above reproach," Nathan says "Everyone is doing their jobs so that none of [the evidence] is tainted. ... [But] somebody has been communicating with her and there has been some movement in the case."
Will there be a time jump on Once Upon a Time? — Jimmy
NATALIE: Negative, Jimmy. You'll get to see how magic comes to Storybrooke in a big way. "Don't worry, we won't be skipping over any big moments," consulting producer Jane Espenson tells us. "We love these characters and we want to see how they navigate their way through their new situation. And not just the Charming Family... expect big moments for everyone in town!"
I am so ready for Breaking Bad to come back. Got any dirt? — Ethan
ADAM: As you might expect, Walt's decision to blow up a meth kingpin (RIP, Gus!) is going to have major (and pretty much immediate) consequences. Look for Gus' right-hand man Mike to high-tail it out of Mexico the second he learns of his boss' demise. Fortunately for Walt, he has one piece of leverage that will keep him out of Mike's crosshairs for now. Unfortunately, that same piece of leverage could also make Walt No. 1 on the DEA's most-wanted list.
Can I just say that the iStake is the best invention ever on True Blood? — Steve
NATALIE: Bill and Eric would probably disagree with you since those quick-killing apps won't be removed for a while. "It stays on for several episodes and you should be worried," Alan Ball tells us. "They're in danger, in serious danger." Like the iStake now?
