Did HIMYM Preview a Proposal? Pointless Grey's Intern? Did Rachel Wreck You? And More TV Qs!

Sep 27 2013, 1:48pm CDT | by TV Line

We’ve got questions, and you’ve (maybe) got answers! With another week of TV gone by, we’re lobbing queries left and right about shows including How I Met Your Mother, S.H.I.E.L.D., Parenthood and Grey’s Anatomy!/>

1 | Doesn’t the Emmy producers’ statement that the guy randomly standing behind host Neil Patrick Harris was intentionally planted there, to create buzz/laughter, seem a little suspect?

2 | What was more shocking about Sunday’s penultimate Breaking Bad: that three masked men could break into a house under police surveillance, or that functioning pay phones still exist?

3 | On Ray Donovan, how ominous was Bunchy’s conversation with the kid who stole his bike? Might next season see him caught in the cycle of child abuse?

4 | TVLine reader DBB asks about Devious Maids: “I’m glad the ‘Who killed Flora?’ mystery was solved, but wouldn’t it have been more satisfying if Marisol had been responsible for the resolution, not the Powells?”

5 | Even though shows like A Baby Story do it all the time – and the family must have given its OK — didn’t Today‘s live-birth segment on Monday feel kinda intrusive?

6 | Is it just us, or does Sleepy Hollow‘s Ichabod not seem terribly broken up about his wife being trapped in some demonic limbo? And yes, we’re only two weeks in, but how has the show not had a storyline yet about Tappan Zee Bridge traffic? #WestchesterCountyHumor

7 | Has anyone realized that once CBS’ We Are Men premieres next week, Harold (John Cho), Kumar (Kal Penn) and Neil Patrick Harris will all be on Monday night TV?

8 | If we never again have to see Mom‘s Anna Faris do a prolonged ugly cry, will it still be too soon?

RELATED | How I Met Your Mother Season 9 Spoilers — Bryan Cranston Returns

9 | Having now seen How I Met Your Mother‘s Cristin Milioti and Alyson Hannigan sitting next to each other for an episode, they don’t look quite as similar as some first thought, do they? Do you think Ted takes The Mother to the Farhampton Inn to propose? And how can we hack our DVR to record this final season minus the Marshall storyline?

10 | How refreshing is The Voice‘s honesty about contestants’ histories — i.e. Donna Allen’s past membership in Miami Sound Machine or E.G. Daily’s prior work with Pee Wee Herman and Rugrats — especially in comparison to The X Factor‘s attempts to paint Lillie McCloud and Rachel Potter as not having had prior respective successes on the Billboard charts and Broadway?

11 | How funny was it that just moments after S.H.I.E.L.D.‘s Agent Coulson flew off in his car, The Goldbergs‘ opening credits featured Back to the Future‘s DeLorean taking off in identical fashion?

12 | How were Chicago Fire‘s Dawson and Casey able to resist the temptation to run into each other’s arms after that touch-and-go rescue?

RELATED | Revolution Season 2 Spoilers — Aaron’s Resurrection and Fireflies

13 | Admit it — you thought Revolution had killed off Aaron, didn’t you? And what the heck was Miles up to in that shed? Any theories?

14 | Could Nick’s hackey-sack have looked any more CGI’d in that New Girl flashback? Also, in the interest of preserving our affection for the character, can we pretend that Winston’s disturbing cat-killing subplot never happened?

15 | Is it OK to ‘ship The Mindy Project‘s Mindy and Danny (which we do) and still hope that she stays with Pastor Casey forever (which we also do)?

16 | Let us get this straight — Nashville flashes back to the moment before the car crash to reveal that Rayna and Deacon were screaming about absolutely nothing?! Also, how badly did you wince when Deacon mangled his arm in the wreckage? (A total Derek Shepherd moment, right?) And as far as making actors looks many years younger and picking dated clothes/hair, weren’t the Deacon and Rayna flashbacks spot-on?

17 | On Modern Family, did Manny’s letter to Gloria out-awww Cam and Mitchell’s “double yes”? Who’s your prediction for the wedding’s best man/woman? And why are we always startled when child actors sprout over the summer? Biology!

18 | While we’re intrigued by The X Factor‘s replacement for the Boot Camp and Judges’ Houses rounds — the 10 semifinalists in each category will now battle live for one of four spots per team — how come nobody in Simon Cowell’s orbit noticed that the name “Four-Chair Challenge” sounds wayyyyy too similar to The Voice‘s already established “Four-Chair Turn”?

RELATED | Spoilers on Mad Men, Community, Castle, HIMYM, Downton, Grey’s, NCIS and More!

19 | Anyone else wondering why Jasmine’s overbearing mother on Parenthood skipped out on the birth of her granddaughter? Also, forget Kristin’s highly-publicized new tresses for a moment and let’s discuss Adam’s sexy new trim, OK? And did you, too, think you’d finally made it through an episode sans tears, only to find yourself a blubbering mess after the episode-ending engagement?

20 | Show of hands, Glee fans: Who needed to reach for a Kleenex as Lea Michele’s Rachel reached the line “Why he had to go, I don’t know, he wouldn’t say” during her cover of the Beatles’ “Yesterday”? Also: Did they really bring back Amber Riley’s Mercedes for the Klaine engagement scene and not give her a single line of dialogue?

21 | What is the purpose of Grey‘s Anatomy intern Lea? (Anyone…?) And did the premiere remind us that, even as bloodless as it is, an electrocution is perhaps the hardest TV death to witness?

22 | As fun a twist as it was, couldn’t The Big Bang Theory have made up Topless Flashback Penny to look more like a younger, mousy, desperate starlet?

23 | Can Kelly Clarkson please recur on The Crazy Ones? Little Miss Independent was funny, and perhaps the best part of the pilot (aside from a flustered James Wolk being grinded up against).

24 | Was Parks and Recreation‘s explanation of Andy’s hot new bod — he just gave up beer! — enough for you, or did you expect something a bit crazier? And was there anything more perfect on TV this week than Leslie’s reaction to A) Ron’s engagement, B) being Diane’s Matron of Honor, C) Ron’s wedding and D) the aftermath of the impromptu I Dos?

25 | Even avowed Yankees-haters can’t deny: Didn’t one of this week’s most touching televised moments come when Yankees closer Mariano Rivera left the mound for the last time, in tears?
