So is Wilson definitely going to die on House? — Amanda
ADAM: Well, the promos for next week's episode don't paint a pretty picture, but let's try to stay positive. (His best friend is a pretty good doctor, after all!) I suspect that Wilson will stick around at least through the series finale. But it does raise the question: Can House exist without Wilson? "For better or for worse, they are bound together," Hugh Laurie says. "They share a way of looking at the world, and I think they need each other." But does that "need" portend a happy ending? "I think the audience will be happy, not because House has learned some life lessons — that's not what he's about," Laurie says. "I think people will be happy for him. The fact that he's still got a 'mud in your eye, to hell with you all' attitude, I sort of love." So let's keep the sackcloth and ashes under wraps for now, OK?
Please tell me you have more info on the big event in the Grey's Anatomy finale! — Sammy
NATALIE: Sarah Drew echoed Shonda Rhimes' ominous sentiments: "It's on par with the shooter finale," she says. "It will affect everyone, but it happens outside of the hospital, and the people that are at the hospital don't know it's happened yet by the end of the episode — I'm one of the people who is back at the hospital. Everybody is left with an uncertain future." Any guesses yet?
I need some CSI finale info. How will the characters react to McKeen's return? — Mark
ADAM: Few CSIs have more animosity toward McKeen than Nick, so he's the one to keep your eyes on. In particular, look for Nick to crumble when McKeen's scheming brings the team's credibility into question. "By the end of the finale, [Nick] will be in a place where he's questioning how the wheels of justice work and also questioning his role in that system," executive producer Don McGill says. "It will bring him to an existential crisis where he really, really contemplates whether or not he wants to be a CSI anymore." Hmm... George Eads is heading into contract negotiation. Say it with me: Eek!
Is Rebekah really dead on The Vampire Diaries? — Rachel
NATALIE: Not exactly. Now that Esther has the white oak dagger from Alaric's alter ego, she'll leave Rebekah's body and return to her own. But Esther isn't done with Alaric yet. In Thursday's episode, she'll reveal that she needs something from both Alaric and Elena to carry out her plan of eliminating her family. And what Esther wants, Esther will get.
Is Howard going to choose going to space over marrying Bernadette on The Big Bang Theory? — Evan
ADAM: Who says he can't have both — or at least try? Howard will attempt to kill two birds with one stone in the season finale, which will feature a closing scene for the ages, executive producer Steve Molaro tells us. "The last scene of the last episode of Season 5 is so amazing that I have yet to watch it without getting choked up," he says. "Everybody is involved in the scene and it is really great." Hmm, well, if everybody's in it, they surely can't all go to space, can they?
What's this I hear about Regina seducing David on Once Upon a Time? — Jennifer
NATALIE: Now that Mary Margaret is out of jail, Regina will use any means necessary to keep Snow and Charming apart — including trying to hook up with her stepson-in-law. "What a great plan, Regina!" consulting producer Jane Espenson says. "What would hurt Snow more? My goodness, why didn't she do this earlier?" But don't worry: Espenson also hints that her seduction won't be without its obstacles.
