Will Schmidt and Cece get back together on New Girl? — Gabi
NATALIE: With Cece on the path to an arranged marriage, Schmidt will do "everything he possibly can" to prevent that, Max Greenfield tells us. "He's making a full push for Cece. Every time he gets close, a disaster happens, and then he gets back in the friend zone, and then he pushes again and then a disaster happens." Still, there is good news for Schmidt... fans. "He's the first one to get naked," Greenfield jokes of the upcoming strip True American episode.
I'm hooked on The Following. Any hints about what's next? — Jacob
ADAM: Next week's episode spends a lot of time establishing the nanny-and-gay-neighbors trio at the center of Joe Carroll's following —and you'll quickly learn that Carroll's not training killers, but rather simply enabling them. Look for a very odd little love triangle to form between the group as they guard Carroll's son. Plus: Prepare yourself now for the creepiest shower scene since Psycho, even though not a drop of blood is spilled!
Will America's baby change Fitz's mind about getting a divorce on Scandal? — Ashian
NATALIE: Mellie's baby, who is coming very soon, may be the only asset Mellie has in her arsenal to prevent POTUS from making a life-changing decision. "The baby is a big emotional issue, so that certainly weighs on Fitz a lot, and that will be one of the big issues," Tony Goldwyn says. "I can't say whether it's decisive or not, but it's a big factor. Fitz has had a moment of clarity by almost losing his life and he's done fooling around."
How will Reid cope with Maeve's death on Criminal Minds? — Bradley, via Twitter
ADAM: You'll find out in Wednesday's episode! The hour picks up a few weeks after Maeve's death and Reid has taken some time off. "He's definitely withdrawn and everyone's trying to reach out to him, but he's not ready to talk yet," executive producer Erica Messer tells us. "He won't have a meltdown or anything; he just wants to be alone." By the end of the episode, though, Reid is ready to come back to the team. "It's a result of a little of both the case and some coaxing from Morgan that sort of distracts him from what's going on that gets his attention."
Will Lana survive American Horror Story: Asylum? — James
NATALIE: That's the question of the season. I can confirm that she does at least live until present day, where she will come face-to-face with her son Johnny. The question becomes: Will she recognize him? And who will survive the ultimate showdown? It is American Horror Story, so suffice it to say, there will be plenty of death in the season finale. Plus: You will finally get an answer to what — or who — ripped Leo's arm off and it may be connected to the above answer.
I'm looking for Castle scoop on the two-parter, please. — C. Stewart, via Twitter
ADAM: This awesome news wasn't enough? Fine, I'll let Jon Huertas share some more secrets. "Something crazy that I think people will be just so blown away by is that we're going to work with an FBI agent. That never happens," a cheeky Huertas says with a laugh. In all seriousness, the case, which involves the kidnapping of a Middle Eastern businessman's daughter, will be truly international. "It takes part of the team out of the country to Europe, which is something we've never done," Huertas says. Unfortunately, don't expect a romantic night out in Paris for Beckett and Castle, the latter of which will find his life in danger. "This two-parter is very scary for the team," Huertas says.
