Every week, editors Adam Bryant and Natalie Abrams satisfy your need for TV scoop. Please send all questions to email@example.com or tweet them to @adam_bryant or @NatalieAbrams.
So what the heck is going on with Bill on True Blood? - Jonah NATALIE: That's what he'll be trying to figure out over the next few episodes, much to Jessica's chagrin. As Bill tests the boundaries of his newfound powers, he'll have some disastrous results. "Jess is terrified," Deborah Ann Woll tells us, "absolutely out-of-her-mind terrified. He's the last tether for her. She doesn't have Hoyt. She doesn't have Jason anymore. It's really scary to think that the one person she used to rely on is in this internal battle."
What's going to happen on the Mad Men finale? Is Pete going to rat out Bob Benson? - Jason ADAM: As we saw in the penultimate episode, Pete has learned from his dealings with Don. "This time [he's] going to go slower," Vincent Kartheiser says. But that doesn't mean he isn't going to rat him out; he's just going to be a lot more strategic about it. After all, Bob claims that Pete hired him, and we all know that Mr. Campbell's middle name is Self-Preservation.
Thanks for the Once Upon a Time scoop! Got anything on those left behind in Storybrooke or Neal? - Monica NATALIE: How about both? "Fear not, the characters left behind in Storybrooke are not forgotten and what's happening to them is important," executive producer Adam Horowitz promises. "Hopefully all the story lines will coalesce in a way the audience will enjoy." Among them is the fate of Neal, who landed back in fairy-tale land. Unfortunately, though, "Emma is on that ship believing Neal is dead and then there's Neal, who just said, 'I love you,'" executive producer Edward Kitsis laments. Anyone else thinking Emma may find solace in Hook's, um, arms?
You hinted before that Olivia might be up for a promotion on SVU next season. Would that take her out of the field? - Valerie ADAM: It's unlikely. Although there's been no official word on whether Benson will, in fact, get a title bump at the precinct, there are no plans to put Benson behind a desk. "Even if she were [promoted], in my mind she would be a player-coach," executive producer Warren Leight says. "You don't want to limit her emotional range."
Is Deb really over her feelings for her brother on Dexter? - Brad NATALIE: She'll be too busy dealing with her PTSD stemming from LaGuerta's death to even consider some more brother-loving. Seriously, she really hates him right now. Instead, she'll turn to Quinn in her time of need, which will really piss off Jamie. Hottest catfight ever, right?
I just watched the Ray Donovan pilot online. Anything else you can tell me about the series? - David ADAM: The murder that Mickey (Jon Voight) commits in the pilot's opening minutes will be crucial in helping Hollywood "fixer" Ray (Liev Schreiber) keep his father away from his family. Unfortunately, Ray's attempts to send his father back to prison may be thwarted: It seems that Mickey has unwittingly made a friend who's even better connected than Ray.
Really excited for Under the Dome. Any chance you can give us a little tease? - Laura NATALIE: If you've read anything about CBS' new summer drama, then you'll know that Secret Circle alum Britt Robertson is playing Angie, who isn't long for the world in the Stephen King novel on which the series is based. But in a nice twist from the book, she'll be sticking around for quite a while - she'll just be in a somewhat familiar position that could make some UtD viewers feel claustrophobic. Ruh-roh.
I loved Michael and Fi's flashback on Burn Notice last week! Will there be more? - Britney ADAM: Yes! But not with Fi. In an upcoming episode, Michael will endure some actual (not emotional) torture, during which he'll flash-back to his childhood, in a particular unusual manner. "The adult Michael is actually in those flashbacks with the child Michael, so he's seeing himself as a little boy," Jeffrey Donovan tells us. "He's hallucinating and it's crazy!"
What's coming up on Wilfred this season? - Georgie NATALIE: For those of you still mourning the loss of Happy Endings, do not miss the hilarious season premiere, in which Zachary Knighton plays Ryan's mailman. Naturally, this makes him the sworn enemy of Wilfred, who has mysteriously found faith in this episode after Jesus - aka a grubby-looking thief - robs Ryan's car.
The promo for the Hannibal finale shows Will being arrested. Is that for real? - Susan ADAM: Yep. Let's just say that Hannibal made a very compelling case against Will to Jack Crawford in the penultimate episode, and Will doesn't do much in the way of making himself look very innocent. Case in point: Wait until you see (or should we say, hear) what's in Will's kitchen sink.
More Longmire scoop, please! - DylanNATALIE: With Walt and Branch's campaign posters plastered all over town, you would think it would be difficult for Branch to go undercover, right? Well, yeah, you're right. That won't work out too well for him when they're investigating a murder at a rodeo - but really, things aren't working out for Branch on many fronts, especially when it comes to Cady.
Can you please tell me what's in the file Henry gave Annie on Covert Affairs? - Lisa ADAM: Of course not! But we can tell you that it's about not one, but two people you know very well, one of whom will make a drastic move by the end of the episode after another secret gets out. Gulp!
Adam's Mega Rave: Showtime's Ray Donovan is going to be my summer obsession. It's written by Southland creator Ann Biderman and has an excellent cast, but you should watch it just to hear Jon Voight say, "You girls know how to twerk?" You can thank me later.
Natalie's Mini Rant: What a bloody mess! Dexter and True Blood are both on Sundays at 9?! I can't decide which to watch live
