Q&A SECTION (with Adam Bryant at TV Guide and Michael Ausiello at TV Line)

Question: Is Juliette going to be OK on Nashville? — Meg

Adam: Yes, if Noah (Derek Hough) has anything to do with it. Wednesday’s episode will pick up moments after Juliette collapsed in his arms, with Noah “trying to take care of her and look after her,” Hough says. Noah will also go to great lengths to keep Juliette’s baby news hush-hush from everyone else. “He wants her to know that she can trust him, so he’s gonna try to keep it on the down-low,” the Dancing with the Stars pro says. “But that’s easier said than done.”

Question: I’m worried about Lincoln on The 100. Please tell me he’ll be OK! — Lyla

Adam: Unfortunately, it sounds like you’ll soon have even more reason to worry. “Episode 3 ends with Lincoln getting reaped into the mountain and tagged for the Cerberus project,” creator Jason Rothenberg says, noting the name of the project is a clue to its intentions. For those not up on their Greek mythology, Cerberus is a three-headed dog who guards the exit to the underworld. But what exactly could the Reapers and Mountain Men be guarding?

Question: I can’t believe it’s only a few weeks until White Collar’s final season! What can you tease? — Jason

Adam: There will be a bit of role reversal during the show’s final run when it is revealed that Peter, not Neal, is keeping a big secret from everyone. And despite Neal’s skills at learning top-secret intel, he actually won’t be the first person to find out what Peter is hiding.

Question: Do you have any scoop on Castle Episode 8? —Jess

Ausiello: Titled “Kill Switch,” the episode revolves around a routine investigation that turns deadly when a gunman takes hostages on a subway car — including one of the 12th’s finest.

BONUS SCOOP: Married with Children‘s Ted McGinley is set to guest-star in Episode 9’s Expendables riff as Brock Harmon, an aging, larger-than-life B-movie action vet (and the husband of the recently cast Krista Allen). The ep revolves around the murder of a Stallone-like movie star.

Question: On Once Upon a Time, is Emma going to help out Henry and Regina with Operation Mongoose? —Dee

Ausiello: Probably not until the 12-episode Frozen arc is over, at earliest. As Jennifer Morrison shared during our set visit, “I’m sure we’ll get around to it eventually, but that storyline right now is separate from ours [and] there’s only so much overlap that can happen before there’s just too much going on. But I’m sure that in the second half of the season, we’ll all have some kind of participation in that.”

Question: Any twists and turns coming up for the Charmings (apart from the baby) on OUAT? —Jenny

Ausiello: There’s a “pretty nasty” development coming, one with far-reaching consequences, teases Josh Dallas, who adds, “There’s something on its way that definitely affects everyone in Storybrooke — and the Charmings, for sure. It creates some weird things within their relationship. I can’t tell you any more.” No worries, JD. You’ve already told us more than enough.

Question: I figure if anyone knows what Sleepy Hollow‘s Ichabod is going to sing at karaoke, it’ll be you. —Erin

Ausiello: You’re right, Erin. I know exactly what Crane’s going to cue up when the Fox drama has him and Abbie hit a karaoke bar, but I’ve been sworn to secrecy. However, I can tell you that he commits to the performance, and Abbie — like a good pal — wholeheartedly cheers her fellow Witness on.

Question: Is Greer really going through with her wedding to Castleroy on Reign? They can’t do that to Leith! — Ashleigh

Ausiello: Oh they can, Ashleigh… but will they? We do know a few things for sure: Greer will be slipping into a wedding dress this Thursday, and her former lover will have a front-row seat to the action. “In some capacity, I will be at Greer’s wedding,” Jonathan Keltz (aka Leith) teases. But he also urges us not to jump to conclusions, saying that, “Just because you saw a picture of Greer in a wedding dress, that doesn’t mean you know what’s going to happen.” Do we think Leith will speak up?

Question: White Collar’s Willie Garson tweeted a photo from the Hawaii Five-0 set. Any details on what he’s up to? —Claire

Ausiello: Stop me if this sounds “familiar” to White Collar fans, but Garson is guest-starring in Episode 11 — the same one as Lost alum Rebecca Mader — as Blume, a highly respected art appraiser with (ahem) black market connections. And as one might infer from the tweeted photo, Blume is quite smitten with Kono.

Question: I would love any spoilers you have about Arrow, specifically Laurel-Oliver. —Alannah

Ausiello: If I’m hearing you correctly, you’d like some “Olicity” scoop. (Kidding! I made a funny!) Oliver will soon find out that Laurel is training with Ted Grant, much to his dismay. “The dynamic has been very adversarial” between the former lovers, Stephen Amell shares. “What she wants and what he’s prepared to reciprocate are at odds with one another, and that carries through the fall.” There’s also the fact that he’s not thrilled that she’s keeping Sara’s death hidden from Captain Lance. However, “it is Laurel’s decision, it is not Oliver’s,” Amell concedes. “And he’s not gonna step on that. He has the ability to disagree without taking matters into his own hands.”

Question: Any information on The 100? Maybe about when the reunion between The Ark adults and the remaining 100 (48) will happen? —Isabella

Ausiello: When the two groups do eventually reunite, the adults will need to listen to the kids if they want to stay alive. “We actually have a lot of good information that can help with the survival of our people,” Marie Avgeropoulos explains. “We know how this has been going and what dangers lie on the other sides of our gates.” And if/when they don’t heed The 100’s advice, the Ark survivors will “get what’s coming and they’ll learn the hard way, too. You’ll see a lot of that in Season 2.”

Question: I’ll go as a Smurf or you for Halloween if you give me scoop on one of my DC faves on television now. What can you tell me about Gotham, The Flash, or Arrow? —Anand

Ausiello: Flash it is! Iris’ obsession with the Red Streak is “definitely a point of tension” in her relationship with Eddie, Rick Cosnett says. “What’s happening with that, how she’s investigating it, how he reacts to it and how it affects their dynamic is quite a big point of contention.” Another issue: The detective is starting to clue into Barry’s feelings for his girlfriend. “Eddie starts to get the impression that there is more than meets the eye, at least with Barry, and he will confront Iris about that,” Candice Patton teases.

Question: I’m desperate for a big juicy Sam-centric Supernatural spoiler. —Kira

Ausiello: Can I give you a mildly-juicy Cas tidbit instead? Crowley may have replenished his grace, but the angel still has plenty of problems. “He’s going to be at something of a crossroads,” executive producer Jeremy Carver previews, “deciding what’s most important to him and what’s most important about the mission that he was sent here to do — and what that’s come to mean these days. It’s going to lead him on a pretty personal, pretty powerful journey.”

That’s it. Enjoy!
