Ausiello: Never give up hope, Allison! Elena’s emotions are all over the place in Season 6 and I have it on good authority that her love life is going to be far from dormant. In fact, I hear she’ll be locking lips with a handsome fella in Episode 3 — and his name does

intel for you, Jacob? When asked if Tatia’s scenes with Elijah and Klaus would be “steamy,” or if they’d be all talk, Nina Dobrev answered, “A little bit of both, in different capacities. … I’m always going to be in a love triangle. I can’t escape it, so I might as well just accept it.”
flashbacks with Kol about why he used to hang around the witches? —Tom
Ausiello: The flashback stories will kick in as early as Episodes 2 and 3, but it remains to be seen if
be explored, “You’re going to get see a little bit more of how the Originals wound up leaving Europe and coming to America,” executive producer Michael Narducci previews. “There’s definitely a reference to some things that we mentioned on
, especially in the teaser of [Episode 2].” The EP also hints that we’ll learn how Kol came to be daggered.
Question: Hey, Ausiello. We’ve heard a lot of spoilers about Hayley, Klaus and Elijah on
, but do you have any spoilers about Camille, her love interests and her role this season? —Mel
Ausiello: Despite trying to distance herself from the supernatural, Cami will get pulled back in thanks to her friendships with Marcel, Josh and Davina. Plus, she’s feeling a bit guilty over baby Hope’s death “because she didn’t act fast enough, she didn’t embrace the inheritance that Kieran left for her,” Narducci explains. “She feels a certain amount of responsibility. Now she’s thinking, ‘If I don’t get involved, maybe Davina’s going to wind up in trouble. If I don’t get involved, maybe Klaus is going to spiral out of control.\'”
Ausiello: I had to watch the first six minutes of the Season 5 premiere with a Trapper Keeper in front of my face — it was
gruesome. I’m shocked AMC’s Standards and Practices signed off on it, to be honest. In related news, click here for my in-depth 140-character review of the episode.
Ausiello: Look for Severide to jump into a seemingly “impetuous and ill-advised” romance with a new bombshell named Brittany (played by
‘s Serinda Swan), previews showrunner Matt Olmstead. “Everybody’s looking at them sideways like, ‘Where’d this girl
come from?\'” As the EP notes, “It’s another extension of Severide [grabbing] the next distraction to keep him from dealing with the Shay of it all. The secret, which is ultimately revealed, is that [Britt] has also run away from a tragedy in her life.” Ultimately, the relationship will allow Severide “to deal with what happened to Shay and put two feet on the ground.” (Programming note: Swan makes her
Boss on [Spoiler]‘s Death, Fan Outrage and a Possible Return
Question: I’m still devastated about Sweets’ death and would absolutely love some happy
Ausiello: Wendell isn’t going to die! As EP Stephen Nathan strongly hinted in last week’s premiere post mortem, it’s highly unlikely the show will kill off
major characters in one season. (The title of the show is
.) That said, Nathan confirms that Wendell’s cancer battle will “definitely be revisited” this season. “We’ve already done the first episode dealing with that,” he notes, “and that will continue for a few more episodes.”
! What’s upcoming for Booth and Brennan outside of the conspiracy arc? —Kay
Ausiello: The big 200th episode — and here’s another clue about the premise of the milestone outing per Mr. Nathan: “They’re all going to be playing their characters, but in a different world and situation.” And he goes on to reiterate that this is
Ausiello: Zoey’s definitely not going to be happy when Kiley (played by
‘ Alexa PenaVega) comes to town in the Oct. 8 episode; after all, would you like it if
boyfriend’s ex showed up with a kid that might be his? Plus, consider this less-than-comforting scoop from showrunner Dee Johnson: “There’s a lot of water under the bridge between them, and Gunnar’s in a very different place in his life now than he was when he knew her way back when.” She adds: “She’s initially pretty threatened.”
Question: What will Mary and Francis’ reunion be like on
Ausiello: As you can imagine, Bree, “complicated” doesn’t even begin to describe Francis and Mary’s relationship in Season 2. “There is a connection between Francis and Lola, and he has to have a civil relationship with her, but he’s determined to show Mary that he cares about their relationship more than anything — and he does that through sex,” Toby Regbo says. “He just throws sex at his problems until they go away.”
Sneak Peek: Catherine Offers Mary a Dark Warning
will get a third season? I’m just the biggest fan. This is my new
Ausiello: No need to introduce yourself up front, Kyle. Tacking it on at the end of your question is all that’s needed. Now, about a third season of
No decision has been made. But Madchen Amick (AKA Aunt Wendy) promises that “a lot of the foes that have been haunting us and a lot of the storylines will be wrapped up [in Sunday\'s two-hour finale].” In regards to Wendy’s line about being willing to “risk anything” for the people she loves, Amick chooses to play coy: “Something pretty big does happen, but I can’t tell you. I might have to kill you.” (Start your prayer circle now.)
Question: What is with this midseason finale stuff on
Ausiello: Did one of the Craigh na Dun stones fall on top of you, Cherlynn? The Starz series announced its return date last week. As for scoop, exec producer Ron Moore tells TVLine that shooting the culmination of Season 1 involved some “grueling, difficult scenes.” (Anyone who hasn’t read the book and doesn’t want to be spoiled, skip to the next question
.) Jamie finds himself the prisoner of Black Jack Randall, who tortures and humiliates him in Wentworth Prison. “There were a lot of hours spent in that cell. There’s a lot of rough stuff happening,” Moore says. “Just from the dailies, you can tell that it’s pretty amazing. It’s pretty intense stuff, and I think it’s going to really surprise people.” What about the herd of livestock that makes an appearance at a key point in the narrative? “We did wrangle some cows,” Moore affirms with a laugh. BONUS SCOOP: Though Jamie’s father, Brian Fraser, appeared for a millisecond in “The Garrison Commander,” he was not introduced. That will change in the second half of Season 1. “There will be a flashback in a subsequent episode where we will revisit that episode at Fort William, and we’ll identify Brian more clearly,” Moore says.
Ausiello: Exclusive casting news coming your way in 3, 2, 1… English actor Luke Massy (AKA Frost Giant Raze in
) is joining the cast in the recurring role of Otis, a tough Aryan Brotherhood leader who wants to be put in charge but has a few obstacles to get through.
Ausiello: Next week’s hour spotlights money that has really bad mojo. “There’s a coin that Henry puts into circulation around Sleepy Hollow that starts turning people against the ones that they love and they start killing each other, as well,” Tom Mison tells TVLine, adding that the cash has ties to at least two other severely bad moments in human history. Oh, and the Mills sisters will fall under its evil spell.
would be more than welcome, thanks. —Jane
Ausiello: Ichabod’s finally learning how to drive! In an upcoming episode, “We see Ichabod and Abbie swap seats,” says Mison, who recently got his own first driver’s license and admits that his lack of experience was evident during production. At one point, the show’s stunt coordinator hopped in the passenger’s seat to talk Mison through a sequence where he was the only person in the shot. “I made one of the leading stunt coordinators on the East Coast whimper,” the actor reports, laughing.
‘s Tom Mison on Crane’s Wife Strife: Can Katrina Be Trusted?
Ausiello: Loads. For instance, even in the wake of Gil, Zane and Nick’s demises, the show won’t be short on nefarious baddies. Among the new crop of recurring connivers we’ll meet are middle-aged Chick Hogan, a tough guy who makes his living running a bike shop dealing in illegal firearms and seems bound to run afoul of neighbor Dylan and his dad/uncle (duncle?), Caleb; and Bob Paris, a fancypants old (read: former) pal of Romero’s whose business is shady enough that it comes with its own “fixer,” menacing Adrian.
Question: I wanted to know what spoilers you can tell me about
intel, and you’ll like it. And that intel is… it
like Dylan’s getting a new love interest, since the show is searching for a sexpot to play Annika Johnson, whose chill attitude and rockin’ bod can’t disguise her guilty conscience. Question is: What is she guilty
Question: Is the Leo-Emma-Jordi triangle going to be an ongoing source of drama on
. But I’ll let series star Charlie Rowe, who plays Leo, flesh out the details. “We are shooting the last couple days of Episode 6,” Rowe reveals, “and things are escalating. We’re almost at the point where a decision is being made in terms of the triangle — and who wins who. There’s a lot of anger and upset involved from both guys, but it’s getting good and juicy.”
is off to a strong start this season – almost makes me forgive them for Season 3. Can you tease anything fun coming up? —Steve Ausiello: There’s an episode on the horizon that has fun written all over it: Jess & Co. realize they have a bag of meth in the apartment and they have to hide it when an officer comes to do a background check on Winston.
Ausiello: A few weeks ago, Matt Mitovich regaled you with a little ditty about
adding a character that sounded like the 2.0 version of Rachel Bilson’s Zoe. Well, allow me to welcome you to
reunion, bitch, because Autumn Reeser got the role! (The actress took advantage of the 60 seconds I had my guard down yesterday and broke the news herself.) ICYM MM’s Inside Line item on the character, Reeser will play Olivia, a very attractive, fashionable and quick-witted New York attorney struggling to make sense of life in BlueBell. She’s set to appear in the Season 4 finale.

Hopefully Season 4 finale for Hart of Dixie isn’t the series finale. It is just a fun show to watch
I hope not. Besides the weird first half of the third season. Its still fun show. I hope its not like The OC where it got canceled when it started to get fun.
Um, WTH? The O.C. got cancelled when it “started to get fun”? It ran for four seasons, and the first one (minus Oliver) was best. Season 2 was messy, season 3 was pretty awful, and season 4 was all over the place.
Thank you for asking it, I really miss Stelena! So tired to see her become what she’s become because of Damon. Bring the old Elena and Stelena back, that’s two things that made the show as good as it once was. Stop listening to the tweets of some obsessed fans and tell your story, writers!
Autumn Reeser! But her role sounds very book end-y and series finale-like, which makes me sad.
I hope witches of east end gets renewed this season has been great
I hope they dont kill Wendy (again lol) this is her last life the finale looks like it will be awesome!
Autumn Reeser on Hart of Dixie! I didn’t know exactly how much I wanted to see that until just now! That’s fantastic news.
I’m interested in what the Outlander writers decided to include from the Wentworth scenes in the book, but I’m nervous about watching them. They were intense to read.
I’m REALLY intrigued by this coin business on “Sleepy Hollow” next week. Considering all that’s been happening thus far with everybody, especially Abbie and Jenny, I can’t even begin to imagine what all this coin will do to mess with the group and the town at large.
And on a lighter note, yay for more fun opportunities involving Crane learning to drive! Hehe. That poor stunt coordinator…
god. hart of dixie still in the air.. that sow is garbage!!
Very excited about the Walking Dead premiere! Thanks for the spoiler. :)
Wow, this is the first time Ausiello failed to mention series that I actually watch.
I really hope Nashville gets rid of Zoey. She’s served what little use she had.
I just got even more excited about Hart of Dixie.
I’m done with New Girl. METH?!? Are you even kidding? Wow. Can they really think of nothing else funny to write without turning them into felons? I don’t even know what to say about the writers, the network, or even the actors themselves at this point.
i agree with rp. new girl is just stupit show now.. once i idolize zooey d. but now i think she need a mirror.. who the f… she think she is. act like dumb teenager.. my god adorkable is so three tears ago.. stop already this piece of crap show.. mindy project far more quality show.. FAR!!!
Best AA in quite a while! You’ve outdone yourself this time, Mr. Ausiello! Finally something for Stelena fans, even if the guy Elena will kiss isn’t Stefan, I’m happy that she’s away from Damon because their relationship was unbearable to watch, so yay! Bring on the Stelena, I miss them!
I love that Camille will get more involved, she’s one of my favorite The Originals characters and she gets too much undeserved hate. And I can’t wait to see Tatia!
Also thanks for lots of Bates Motel and Sleepy Hollow scoop! And TWD! Damn, this AA was made for me, thank you and write more AAs like this one!
So I’m guessing that Erin and Severide are going to break up? Does this mean that her and Halstead are going to hook up? I actually liked that little crossover between the two every now and then.
she will probably be the girl that george ends up with aka the series finale (i would be shocked if the show went on another season).
Thank you so much for the Bates Motel scoop! So little is known about season 3 that any information is highly welcomed. I would love to see some more scoop on Bates soon, if possible.
