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, Sons of Anarchy, Once Upon a Time and Scandal!

1 | Could The Good Wife‘s Florrick-Agos please, please, please find a place in their new firm for Carrie Preston’s hilariously shrewd Elsbeth?

RELATED | Spoilers for NCIS, The Mentalist, Bones, Grey’s, Castle, Criminal Minds and More

2 | Once Upon a Time‘s young Bae was undoubtedly a clever lad, but really — a coconut shell lamp that projects a map? A map written in code, no less?! As for grown Bae, has he had a better moment than stripping off his pea coat and declaring, “I’m not a boy anymore, Felix — and I sure as hell ain’t lost”?

3 | In what universe would new Revenge couple Patrick and Nolan have been able to stop going at each other after one kiss? And didn’t Emily give some really excellent WTF? looks in this week’s episode?

4 | If Homeland‘s Carrie was working with Saul all along, and everything was pretty much going according to plan, then why, in scenes when it was just her, did she act genuinely surprised/agitated/frustrated vs. committed/resigned/determined? And did the revelation that young whatshisname killed his brother almost make you go back and watch the Dana scenes you had just fast-forwarded?

5 | Is How I Met Your Mother slowly destroying everything there is to love about Robin and Barney with their crazy behavior during the wedding weekend?

6 | As reliably funny as CBS’ Mom has gotten over the course of the last five weeks, isn’t it time for an episode focusing on Allison Janney’s delectable Bonnie?

7 | Which former Bones guest star did you miss most at Booth and Brennan’s wedding?

8 | Coming out of this week’s Hostages — where Ellen’s husband nearly died, she learned her daughter is pregnant and she had to bury a dear colleague — how can she do anything but ultimately botch the president’s surgery? She’s a twitchy wreck! And can we talk about how lightning-fast the Sanders kids were located at a random bus depot, grabbed and returned home?

9 | How was this week’s Blacklist baddie, Robert Knepper’s “The Courier,” left to sit all alone in a prison van when the FBI had no idea what types of metallic objects were imbedded underneath his skin? Why not just give him a key for his handcuffs and shoot their own transport agents to make it all a little easier? Or do we just have to accept that pretty much everyone on the show, The Following-style, is going to be completely incompetent every week — save for James Spader’s Red?

10 | Who are these people and what did they do with Castle and Beckett?! (Props to TVLine reader This Just In for spotting the stand-ins.)

11 | Regarding New Girl‘s Michael Keaton/Schmidt gag, how was Jess able to get a hold of the email address Nick and Winston used when they were impersonating the Batman actor? And wouldn’t the episode have been that much cooler if it had actually gotten Michael Keaton to show up?

12 | When do we find out how Sons of Anarchy‘s Tara was able to fake a miscarriage? Her doctor surely would’ve realized there was no fetus during her post-”attack” examination, right? Or did Margaret help orchestrate the cover-up?

13 | Did Cara’s flashback on The Tomorrow People give you Carrie vibes? And wasn’t that one majorly impressive de-aging wig?

14 | Could Castiel’s “love” interest on Supernatural have been any more obvious with her “delts” comment?

15 | Now that the pilot has made its way to the Internet, we’ve got to ask, is it too late for NBC to pick up Sarah Silverman’s quirky, but actually quite lovely, Susan 313?

16 | Are we really to believe that Arrow‘s Quentin Lance is now spending all this time hanging out with the vigilante and never once IDs Oliver’s barely shrouded face…? And is anybody else kinda “done” with the island flashbacks? With so much now happening in Starling City, they’re kinda momentum-stoppers.

17 | So, Emma Swan’s loss is Anastasia Steele’s gain?

18 | Was Modern Family‘s Ronaldo basically playing Agador Spartacus to Nathan Lane’s Pepper…? And was that TV’s best use of Peri Gilpin since Frasier?

VIDEO | Revolution Season 2 Spoilers — Zeljko Ivanek Debuts as Dr. Horn

19 | Coming off Nashville, wouldn’t Scarlett’s Ex-Boyfriends make a great band name?

20 | How do you think Emma Roberts’ American Horror Story: Coven character will be brought back to life?

21 | Is NBC not paying any mind to its ongoing track record with retro reboots? Ironside, The Munsters, Knight Rider, Bionic Woman, the Rockford Files pilot that never saw the light of day…?

22 | Can The Vampire Diaries finally go there with Stefan and Caroline?

VIDEO | The Originals Spoilers — Elijah Confronts Davina

23 | As TV newspaper articles go, could this Scandal obit be written any more vaguely? And has anyone found yet where to buy those ridiculously long-stemmed wine glasses? (Are these them? Or not long enough?)

24 | After that Big Bang Theory, does every girl out there want herself a Howard Wolowitz?

25 | Wasn’t Tim Gunn kind of naive on the Project Runway reunion special with his claims that the producers don’t look up their contestants online and don’t try to produce the ingredients needed to drum up drama/ratings?
