Welcome to the Spoiler Room, a safe place for spoiler addicts to come on a weekly basis to learn what’s coming next on their favorite shows and, hopefully, get a few of their own questions answered. If you want scoop on a specific show, send your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Have you read James Hibberd’s epic Kit Harington cover story yet? Get to it! But to answer your question, James tells me Jon Snow is firmly back in action this week and has some key decisions to make. Cryptic much?
Sunday’s episode will provide a sense of the closure, with the two-hour finale kicking off a new story for season 6. “Like every year, the two-hour finale is kind of a different piece than the rest of the season, so in a lot of ways, this weekend is the finale for the Hades arc,” executive producer Edward Kitsis says. “I can say that it will break a few hearts.” As for the actual finale, part of it will take place outside Storybrooke. “As much as they’d like peace and quiet in Storybrooke, fallout from this weekend’s episode causes a character to go rogue in New York City,” Kitsis says. “Once again, the heroes are called upon to save the day.”
Jo and Alex are facing an uphill battle in the final episodes. “It’s not good between them,” Ellen Pompeo tells me. “She’s pushing him away. There is a big Alex and Jo situation happening that’s going to explain a lot of why they haven’t gotten together yet.” And by that, she means marriage. No pressure!
To be fair, they have done it before. And they’ve also brought her back, so really, anything can happen. The one thing I can promise is that Davina’s situation is going to cause an issue for those characters who might not agree on how to handle things. “It’s going to create a lot of tension for the remaining episodes,” Danielle Campbell says. “There’s going to be a lot of dividing between the houses.” So now all we want to know is: Who’s in each house?
Though Red wants to work with Scottie Hargrave to track down the man (ahem) responsible for what happened to Liz, that won’t sit well with the Task Force. “We don’t want to do it,” says Mozhan Marnò, hinting that the new arrangement will cause a rift within the team. “There’s always some kind of division on our team. Everyone wants to do the same job in a different way.”
Let’s see, does everyone working together to find LokSat count as good news? “Castle and Beckett are keeping things quiet,” EP Terence Paul Winter says. “When Espo, Ryan and Hayley find out that they are in urgent need, they’re more than willing to jump in and assist, which puts everybody in danger as well. It really gets dangerous.” Oh yeah, no, nevermind. Danger bad.
What follows is the most cryptic tease from Tom Cavanagh about the finale that
have to do with Jesse… or it could just be about Wells. You decide. “We have this scene where I kept it in my back pocket the entire season,” Cavanagh says. “I knew there would be a moment where we’d get to play it, and sure enough these guys wrote this episode, our season finale, where it’s in there, and I’ve just been longing to do it. This is the domain of television where, when you’ve done something for 22 episodes and it builds up to something in the 23rd hour, that’s a joy to get to play it, because here comes the pay off. In many ways, where we’re leading to for the season, the payoffs are extreme.”
front, if you thought the body-melting failure of the Inhuman experiment was creepy, just wait until you see the results of Hive’s next attempt. “In real life, they are so scary,” Elizabeth Henstridge teases. “It’s something we’ve never dealt with before.”
What’s going to happen now that there’s no Internet inside the cordon on
Things are going to get a little chaotic, that’s what. We know that Jake and Lex have found another way to communicate, but for everyone else, the inability to talk to their loved ones will create a sense of panic. And when panic comes into play, well, let’s just say that the virus isn’t the only thing threatening lives.
What happens in the penultimate episode is so intense, even I wouldn’t want to spoil it. But the question of what to do about Norman creates a divide between Norma and Romero. Also, do not miss the last 10 minutes of Monday’s episode.
Best news I’ve heard all week: He lives!
