Q&A SECTION (with Adam Bryant and Natalie Abrams at TV Guide and Team Watch with Kristin at E! Online)
Question: Give me some Revolution scoop! It’s going to be a long four months! — Sarah
ADAM: Want to know more about Miles and Nora’s past? You got it! “It’s a little twist on their history. It’s not exactly what you think it would be,” Daniella Alonso tells us. Allow co-executive producer David Rambo to elaborate: “She and Miles blew stuff up. They would work for anybody: bounty hunters, militia, drug lords. …They were mercenaries — and they loved it.” The show will also peel back some layers on another duo. “We are going to learn a lot more about Randall and Grace,” Rambo teases. “Especially Randall, and the project that lead to the lights going out and Randall’s association with the Mathesons.”
Question: How will Elena cope with her breakup from Stefan on The Vampire Diaries? — Jodi
NATALIE: The very last way you’d expect — though it may make some fans happy. The big question now becomes: Why? Are Elena’s intentions pure?
Question: Is there anything you can tell us about McGee on NCIS? — Tara, via Twitter
ADAM: McGee’s upcoming undercover mission with Fornell and Gibbs’ ex-wife Diane (returning guest star Melinda McGraw) will be very uncomfortable for him. “She ends up having to spend the night with McGee, and you can only imagine what sort of comes out of that,” executive producer Gary Glasberg says with a laugh. “This is a woman who is very sharp and very shrewd,” he says. “This a situation that she can’t help but have some fun with, and she takes full advantage of that. McGee is absolutely terrified.”
Question: I’m so excited about the Huntress on Arrow! — Maya
NATALIE: Me too! But talk about an awkward double date: Oliver and Helena will join Tommy and Laurel for a dinner that will make Birds of Prey fanboys squeal. Helena will also be a different kind of love interest for Oliver than Laurel could ever be. “In talking to her and getting to know her, Oliver realizes that, in some ways, she’s the only person in the world who truly understands him because Helena has a very tragic backstory as well,” executive producer Andrew Kreisberg says.
Question: Anything cool coming up on Leverage? — Philip
ADAM: Ever wonder what Nate & Co. might have done if they were in Inception? Wonder no more. Next Tuesday’s episode finds the team manipulating a man’s dreams in order to find answers about why he wants to sell off his company. It’s a challenge unlike any the team has faced before, mostly because they’re trying to help their mark rather than take him down. As such, the risky con puts everyone on edge, including Hardison and Spencer, who have a rather bromantic spat, and Parker, who must relive some personal trauma to save the mission.
Question: Any Once Upon a Time scoop you can share? – Daisy
Team Watch with Kristin: Yet another regal beauty will be joining the ABC hit series! Viewers will meet the elegant and poised Katerina in episode 15. Katerina captures the affection of all those that meet her, thanks to her pure spirit and kind heart. As if she doesn’t already sound perfect enough, it’s worth noting that she treats everyone with dignity and respect, no matter their place in society and she’s super close with her adoring family.
That’s it. Enjoy!
