Every week, senior reporter Natalie Abrams satisfies your need for TV scoop. Please send all questions to firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet them to @NatalieAbrams.
Do you have any scoop on the return of The Walking Dead? - DamonDon't expect to see too many familiar faces since Rick and Carl take center stage when the AMC drama returns. While Rick heals from his beating from The Governor - whom you will see again - Carl will lose something very important to him. (No, not his innocence!) In other news, it won't be long before this mystery is blown wide open.
Orphan Black is coming back!!! Scoop me, please. - Jennie Worried about Cosima? You should be, and not just about her health. "That Cosima-and-Delphine relationship is as complex as ever," executive producer Graeme Manson tells me. "It stays romantic and stays scientific, but there's a lot of gamesmanship going on." Look for Cosima to get closer to the Dyad Institute in her quest to stay alive.
Is Castle doing another two-parter this February? - Gina"We're going to forgo tradition," executive producer Andrew W. Marlowe says, noting that Season 6 defied convention by opening with a two-episode case. But never fear: The Castle team still has big plans for the sweeps month. First up, an episode that involves the murder of a high school student. "It appears our victim was killed telekinetically," Marlowe says. "It takes us in that Carrie kind of world." Then, look for a big episode that once again digs into the Beckett mythology. Could her mother's history be involved?
Do you have any scoop on Bill Paxton's character on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.? - SimonJohn Garrett is a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent who, like Coulson, was trained by Nick Fury. But he also has history with Ward, whom he actually trained before Ward joined Coulson's team. "Coulson makes decisions based on instincts and intuition," Brett Dalton says. "Ward is more about risk assessment and tactical skills. That's all that he's known until joining Coulson's team. [Garrett is] the guy who trained Ward, so he's a reflection of him in a lot of ways."
Page 2 of 5 - Got anything New Girl-related? -JaimeRemember when I said Schmidt was about to get back in the game? Well, I hear that's happening around the same time that Linda Cardellini arrives to play Jess' sister Abby. Schmidt, no!
When is the next Once Upon a Time Lightning Round? - Ryan Soon, I promise! But in the meantime, I'll give you a tease: The destruction of Storybrooke didn't reverse anyone's deaths - unfortunately, The Huntsman (Jamie Dornan) is not coming back to life - but one particular death may have been undone thanks to the burning of the Shadow. Related: Where is Greg Mendell (Ethan Embry) these days? Find out in the next Lightning Round!
I can't wait for Sleepy Hollow to return! Please give me some scoop to tide me over! - KatherineNow that Abbie realizes why she forgot War's resurrection, she'll become closer with Jenny, which is good because she's going to need a friend. "Once you access a memory that's painful, it opens the gates to others," executive producer Roberto Orci tells me. "Both of them may have experienced things together that they don't remember that may come back. This is the gateway to what else happened before we met all these people."
I still can't believe Danny and Mindy kissed on The Mindy Project! What will be their next move after that smooch? - SharonMindy and Danny's romantic future will be complicated by Mindy's ex Cliff. When he gets the news that his grandmother has died, he'll guilt Mindy into staying by his side during the grieving process. The good news is that absence will make Mindy's heart grow fonder... of Danny.
Will Jane Lynch be back as Reid's mom on Criminal Minds? - Justin An episode later this season takes the team to Las Vegas, Reid's hometown, where he'll check up on his mom - but she's not at the Bennington Sanitarium. Don't worry, she's not missing. "Reid finds out where she is and how she's doing, and it's a nice little through-line to get an update on her without seeing her," executive producer Erica Messer says. The show is hoping to get Lynch back eventually, but probably not this season.
Page 3 of 5 - Please tell me that Stefan and Caroline will get together on The Vampire Diaries at some point! - Tamara Caroline does get pretty jealous of Stefan and Elena's newfound closeness. But when my colleague Robyn Ross asked executive producer Julie Plec about the prospect, she said, "Caroline and Stefan are really beautiful friends and we'll continue to shine that beautiful friendship. We'll see if it evolves into anything more or if each of them go in their own direction."
I'm sad that Troy is really gone on Community. - MarshaSo are Abed and Annie, but they need a new roommate, stat! "There's an episode where Annie and Abed ... get into a competition to see who gets to choose who will move in with them," Alison Brie says. Could their new roommate be Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan, who guest-stars in the same episode?
What's next for Hank's son, Justin, and Det. Lindsay now that he's out of prison on Chicago PD? - CarlosChicago Fire viewers will learn more about Sgt. Voight's only son, specifically just what made him drink and drive at the beginning of last season - aka the accident that first introduced Voight to the show. "You got to see Hank as a father who was losing his mind over his son getting to this rock bottom place in a downward spiral he'd been in," Sophia Bush says. "You'll find out what caused that for Justin, and why it split Hank open."
Mega Rave: On an overall impressive Grammys, Pink impressed me the most with her acrobatics in the air and on the ground. Excuse me while I head to the gym now.
Page 4 of 5 - Mini Rant: "I can't believe a character died on American Horror Story," said no one ever.
This week's recommendation: Parks and Recreation (Thursday at 8:30/7:30c on NBC) It's the farewell to Ann and Chris, which basically serves as a walk down Memory Lane of all the Pawnee men Ann has slept with over the years. You'll definitely be surprised by at least one, ya heard?
