It's been so long since you offered up any scoop on Glee. Please! —Sammie
NATALIE: This week's episode is a game-changer, to say the least, after someone at McKinley High makes a bold decision that will leave their future at the school in question. If I say any more, Ryan Murphy will kill me, but considering his penchant for timely topics, this one shouldn't be too hard to figure out.
I love Person of Interest. Will the Stanton Virus wreak havoc on the Machine?
ADAM: Finch pretty much confirmed in the last episode that the virus was most likely behind the Machine's glitchy behavior in recent episodes. But it sounds like the Machine will fight back in the run-up to this year's finale. "What's really interesting about the Machine is whether or not you believe it is an evolving organism," executive producer Greg Plageman says. "What happens when an organism like that comes under attack? The question to ask is: Have we seen all the facets of the Machine and its true power?" Anyone else hoping to see Terminators in Season 3?
What's going to happen to Bailey on Grey's Anatomy? —Mary
NATALIE: Her job will be on the line when the CDC comes to town to investigate her. But the good news is that her faithful husband Ben (Jason George) will return from Los Angeles to offer moral support. Love me some BCB!
So glad Mad Men is back, even though Don is up to his old habits. On the upside, does that mean he'll get his mojo back at wor
ADAM: Creator Matthew Weiner doesn't believe that Don ever lost his mojo. And although Don often worries about being pushed out by the younger generation, Weiner says the creativity on display in Don's ill-fated Hawaii ad is actually a sign of promise. "People have some expectation that Don is going to be left behind — that he's some kind of relic," Weiner says. "I feel like the society is becoming more like Don and he's never been more in touch with what's going on." Nevertheless, the Royal Hawaiian begs to differ.
Got any scoop on The Vampire Diaries spin-off episode? —Jorge
NATALIE: After Klaus and Haley's hookup, Phoebe Tonkin's casting on the spin-off makes a little more sense, but in the backdoor-pilot episode, we'll discover why they'll always be connected — and why Elijah is so damn happy about it.
I really loved the Hannibal premiere. How quickly will we get to see more of Dr. Lecter's misdeeds? — Nathan
ADAM: All in good time, Nathan. "We will see the Hannibal we know several times," Mads Mikkelsen promises. "But it has to be his private moments." In the meantime, Hannibal has other fish to fry. Perhaps the most pressing: What happens when Abigail Hobbs wakes up? After all, the man who called to warn her father the FBI was coming had a pretty recognizable voice...
Please tell me that Parks and Recreation is going to get renewed! --Darren
NATALIE: I'm crossing my fingers like the rest of you, but I do have some news on the season finale: Leslie Knope will be looking back on her year in office during Pawnee's Founder's Week. As she reflects, some major players from the town will make cameos, including Jason Schwartzman's adult-video store owner, moral watchdogs Marcia and Marshall Langman, Wamapoke Indian Ken Hotate and, quite possibly, Jean-Ralphio.
