Mega Buzz: New Girls on Grey's and CSI and an Old Flame on The Good Wife
Every week, editors Adam Bryant and Natalie Abrams satisfy your need for TV scoop. Please send all questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
What's coming up on Grey's Anatomy? — Jesse
NATALIE: In this week's episode, everyone but Alex will notice a spark that's developing between him and intern Morgan (Amanda Fuller). "Karev's really oblivious to the fact that everyone's rumoring around the hospital that they're doing it," Fuller tells us. "They're spending so much time together, and they bicker and banter like two kindergarten kids who have a crush on each other, so he begins to realize that everyone may be right about her being into him."
I really liked Elisabeth Shue on CSI. But please tell me the show isn't going to try to force her and Ted Danson together. — Kasey
ADAM: Sorry, Kasey, but I think it's a safe bet that the duo's early scenes will traffic highly in sexual tension. "Semi-platonic relationships are the fodder of great television," executive producer Carol Mendelsohn says. However, I don't think the duo will ever go much further than flirting. After all, D.B.'s married and Finn's not so great at relationships. "She has been married a number of times and has a real thing for cops," Mendelsohn says. "So she's in the right profession."
As Will copes with his suspension on The Good Wife, who will he turn to in his time of need? — Jasmine
ADAM: How about his ex? Elizabeth Reaser's Tammy conveniently returns to town to cover a major sporting event. Once she learns that things have soured between Will and Alicia, what's to stop her from pouncing? Nothing except that Will may already be getting all the support he needs from an unlikely source. "At strange times like this, Kalinda, as cold as she can be, has a certain warmth and affection toward Will that starts popping up again," executive producer Robert King teases.
Got any scoop on the Parks and Recreation election? — Dan
NATALIE: When Leslie puts her foot in her mouth and calls Bobby Newport's dad Nick a jerk — just moments after he dies -- the election will take a turn for the ugly. Look for Donna to save the day by sacrificing the thing she loves the most. Prepare to grab some tissues!
Any update on whether Castle will be touching on the 3XK killer again? — Chase
ADAM: The show is definitely keen on revisiting that story line, but it's all about timing. "We're having talks about whether we're bringing him back by the end of this season," executive producer Andrew W. Marlowe says. "But we're still waiting to hear on Season 5. If we get the Season 5 pickup, it's something that we might wait and make more of a meal of next year."
Thanks for the scoop on The Walking Dead. What's coming up for Shane? —Eric
NATALIE: The tension among Shane, Rick and Lori won't let up, executive producer Glen Mazzara tells us. "Shane has designs on taking leadership of the group," he says. "The Rick-Shane tension will play out and everybody will be put in the middle, including Andrea. That ripples out from just a Rick-Shane-Lori story."
Is there hope for Pete and Violet on Private Practice? — Maxine
NATALIE: If you think couples therapy is viable, then yes! "They both feel the relationship needs resolution, so Violet suggests that they go into therapy. Pete is reticent about the idea because he feels overanalyzed by Violet anyway," Tim Daly tells us. "He's not yet decided whether or not he can do it, but he hasn't said no."
