Will Once Upon a Time newcomers crowd out the originals? Who is not marked for a True Blood-y death? Will Scandal reveal a snitch? Are the Pretty Little Liars heading to prom? Will a Beast be back? Read on for answers to those questions plus teases from other shows.

Peter Pan, a new Robin Hood, Lost Boys plural….. Should Once Upon a Time fans be worried that the main cast will be overshadowed by the Season 3 newbies? –Devin
I wouldn’t worry. I mean, we knew Peter Pan was coming, and where theres’ Pan, there are Lost Boys in the background. And Robin Hood, I suspect, will play a role on whats going on in the Fairytale Land That Is, probably impeding Neal’s return “home.” As series cocreator Adam Horowitz told me (after I suggested they’d be giving Belle new friends there in Storybrooke), “There will be some new characters, but for the most part were going to be focusing on our core group of regulars from Seasons 1 and 2. If characters do come in, it will, at least at first, be more akin to how we used Robin Hood in Season 2.”/>

Do you have any insight as to who might be experiencing the true death this season on True Blood? –Bobby
Here’s one name I’d venture to rule out, despite how last Sunday’s episode ended: Eric — if only because he is busy making a last-ditch effort to save an ailing Nora in the July 28 episode. Unless, you know, it’s his ghost saving her, or something./>

Very faithful reader here. While I appreciate all the tidbits you’ve shared this summer, I’m wondering why you’re keeping the Scandal info under wraps? –Kimberly
Hey now, the writers room only reconvened recently. Can’t scoop what doesn’t exist! But this much I’ve gleaned: We will learn, via flashbacks, who it was that ratted out Liv to the press. And I am pretty sure it’s not anyone you’d guess. Also: Prepare to meet Cyrus’ very oppressed, young, male office assistant./>

Graceland is starting to grow on me. Have you got any scoops on Briggs? And will we see any love interest for any of the characters? –Marla
This week we learn a huge Briggs secret — and we’re not alone in doing so! As such, expect to soon see his layers peeled back and gain greater insight into why he’s really being investigated. As for love interests, expect things to heat up between Mike and Abby as they go on a double date…with a member of Graceland. Cue the (exclusive) videotape!/>

Do you know if ABC Family ordered more episode of The Fosters? — @coolteacher31
They have not. The Aug. 5 episode will be the summer finale — and the final episode until/unless the show gets picked up (which I reckon it will, seeing as it keeps doing solidly in the Nielsens)./>

Can you please keep us in touch with the latest on the Beauty and the Beast show? It will be much appreciated. –Carol
I hereby confirm that Sendhil Ramamurthy will be back as Gabe, and for multiple episodes at that. The big question is: Who’s side is he on now? Jay Ryan, for one, believes the secret-keeping ADA owes poor, abandoned Catherine a serious solid. As he puts it, “Gabe has got a lot of making up to do, if he wants to get back in our good books.”/>

Do you think Cote de Pablo’s departure spells the end for NCIS? With Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. rivaling for No. 1, I don’t see NCIS staying at the top without her, and I know many Tiva shippers are leaving the show with Cote. –Mary Catherine
OK, for one, it’s not “the end of NCIS.” TV’s most watched program isn’t suddenly and abruptly going to crater because one member of a good-sized, top-notch ensemble leaves. Will its numbers get dinged? Maybe. A bit. But it’d have to lose 3 million viewers to fall behind Big Bang Theory and cease being the most watched (non-sports) program. S.H.I.E.L.D.’s more direct competition, I imagine, is The Originals, so those two will have to duke it out first before either start eating into Gibbs’ numbers./>

I just finished reading the newest Pretty Little Liars book (Crushed), and in it the girls are off to prom. That got me wondering: Will they be heading to prom on the show, since it is after all senior year? –Estee
Don’t buy a corsage just yet. This question “is a difficult one,” says EP Oliver Goldstick, “because proms, we all know, usually happen toward the end of the school year, and we are going very slowly through the senior year for a multitude of reasons. We’ll give you other events, but we won’t necessarily give you a prom right away. You’ll [eventually] get one, but unfortunately that would mean they’d be graduating within weeks [of it], and we’re trying to avoid that story point [for now].”/>

Will we ever find out what Harvey and Donna really do with that can-opener on Suits? – Abdul
I cannot confirm that one way or the other, but EP Aaron Korsh reveals this much: The flashback episode’s title, “The Other Time,” is definitely “a clue” about Harvey and Donna’s mysterious past./>

I am incredibly curious about Auggie’s secret on Covert Affairs. Any clues? –Mel
Only that what Annie’s honey is hiding is “a seismic secret that will affect the entire trajectory of the show,” per EP Chris Ord. Only that!/>

Any Drop Dead Diva scoop to drop on this diva? –Danyelle
Jane may have broken Grayson’s heart in the last episode, but don’t feel too bad for the handsome lawyer. “There’s a hot and heavy romance” coming up real soon for him, teases creator Josh Berman./>

Do you know when ABC Family’s Bunheads will start streaming on Netflix? I love the show, and want to watch it again! –Amy
I asked around, and there are no plans at this time for Michelle and the girls to show up on Netflix. Sorry!/>

Why is Moon Bloodgood no longer billed as a series regular on Falling Skies? Is she leaving the show? –Andy
I am assured that Bloodgood is very much still a series regular, and was only omitted from the credits during her maternity leave. What’s more, I can tease that Anne resurfaces soon, and in an unexpected place (…or two)./>
