Q&A SECTION (with Team Watch with Kristin at E! Online)
Question: Revenge scoop would be lovely! – Quinn
Team Watch with Kristin: Brace yourselves for a pretty big revelation: Amanda was not Jack’s only friend when he was a child. (Crazy, right?!) Eddie, one of Jack’s old high school buddies who is now a cop with a chip on his shoulder, will pay him a visit in episode 10 and we’re already campaigning for a Roswell alum to guest star. (Colin Hanks, you free?)
ME: I’d say Jason Behr, as he needs the exposure seeing as he hasn’t done much in the spotlight in a VERY long time.
Question: Any good George and Zoe scoop? I’m DYING for something on them. Please and thank you. – ampdalejr89
Team Watch with Kristin: We’d ask you for your definition of good, but who are we kidding? You aren’t going to like this next bit of info, but we’re going to share it anyway! Could Zoe be getting a new love interest? The CW charmer is currently casting the likeable, sexy and charismatic Jonah, a surgeon-in-training who is in town visiting family. While he initially comes off as a little cocky (he is a former fratboy after all), Jonah also has a vulnerable side. So he’s a surgeon, like Zoe, and is a bad boy with a sensitive side? Yeah, Wade and George should definitely be worried, especially when you factor in that Jonah will be sticking around for a bit.
That’s it. Enjoy!
Have a terrific weekend!
