Matt's Inside Line: Scoop on Castle, NCIS, HIMYM, Parks & Rec, Bones, Reign, White Collar and More

Nov 7 2013, 6:46pm CST | by TV Line

Are things about to heat up on Castle? Might an NCIS fave move to New Orleans? Who will Mother fans meet? Who on Reign gets a blast from their romantic past? Read on for answers to those questions plus teases from other shows.

Can you ask Andrew Marlowe why we don’t get to see the weekly poker games with all Castle’s writer friends anymore? I really loved those scenes. –Janice
I did ask, and the answer is admittedly bittersweet, as it reminds us of the passing of novelist Stephen J. Cannell, who played an integral role in rounding up his peers to intermittently play cards on the ABC drama. “Stephen was really instrumental on helping us with that,” Marlowe explains. “We live and hope to do it again, and I will try by the end of this season” – maybe for a stag party, I must wonder? – “but I can’t make any promises.”

Been praying that one of my favorite shows, Castle, will be getting better very soon! Any hint on improvements? –Tamar
Things will certainly be heating up in Episode 12, which is casting the guest-starring roles of an arsonist (sounds like a hothead!), a fire fetishist (sounds hot!) and an authoritative and attractive female fire investigator (sounds like a hottie!).

I heard that NCIS is going to do another spinoff. Any info, please? And are any of the current cast moving to it? –Donald
As previously reported, the prospective offshoot is set in New Orleans and will be introduced via a spring 2014 episode of the mothership. As for its cast, Gary Glasberg – who is exec-producing the planted pilot with NCIS frontman Mark Harmon – says will “absolutely” be opportunities for familiar faces to swing by NOLA. When I then passed along a reader’s suggestion that CGIS Agent Borin (played by Diane Neal) — whom Gibbs recently sorta-offered a job — be part of the spin-off’s cast, Glasberg hedged, “I haven’t quite put [the list of characters] together yet, but that is an interesting idea!” Speaking of which….

Forget the character Bishop — bring Diane Neal on as an NCIS regular! She has great chemistry with the cast. Please tell me we will see more of her character. –Robin
When I, too, shared with show boss Gary Glasberg my enjoyment of Neal’s most recent visit, he joined in on the fanning. “I really appreciate the fact that everyone responds so well to the guest stars that come in, and Diane Neal is more than that — she’s a part of this family, and we will continue to use her. To have her come back is super-important, and we’ll continue to do that.”

Do you have any spoilers for How I Met Your Mother? –Shari
The goodbye season’s Episode 16, titled “How Your Mother Met Me,” is also How We Met The Mother’s BFF. To that end, the show is casting the role of Stacy, an upbeat gal who, among other things, is seen making a toast at a birthday party for the Mother.

Is there any new information yet on Parks and Recreation‘s final episode with Rashida Jones and Rob Lowe? –Lauri
Yes, there almost is! Episode 12 aka the one before Pawnee says goodbye to Anna and Chris, will mark cast member Adam Scott’s directorial debut with the NBC sitcom.

Will Sue Heck be getting her braces off soon on The Middle? –Amy
As a matter of fact, I am told that there is an episode coming up that involves a) Sue, b) her orthodontist and c) her braces. Wonder what that’s all about?

I’m addicted to Reign, and need a fix. Do you have a juicy scoop? – Caria
As if Mary’s betrothal to Francis hasn’t been tested enough already (most recently by Tomas), next week’s episode finds a beautiful, blonde blast from the would-be king’s past standing in his doorway unexpectedly, and she is all too ready to assume the position (minds out of the gutter!) of his mistress (OK, maybe a little gutter). It’s all enough to drive poor Mary to drink… lots… and then maybe engage in an illicit encounter of her own.

Any news about the next episodes of The Mentalist? About the end of the Red John arc? -Sal
I am able to rule out one wild theory — that random-ish CBI wonk Ron will not be revealed as Jane’s nemesis. (Some have the idea that “Ron” is short for “Red John,” after all, and the guy does seem omnipresent.) “That’s a very clever theory, but there are no games being played,” EP Daniel Cerone assured me “It is one of the suspects [on Jane's list].” (Watch for the next episode of Spoiler Alert! for my official Red John prediction, with a twist.)

Please tell me Sara/Black Canary isn’t leaving Arrow all together, but just Starling City. Shes been a great addition. –Dave
I know that the latest batch of episodic photos only show Sara in flashbacks/on the freighter, but I have to reckon her days of kicking butt alongside Oliver are not over. As Caity Lotz told me just last week, “I’ve been in every episode since I came on,” and as for her ultimate episode count, she ventured, “Hopefully, a lot!”

Loving the new season of White Collar, even Neal’s new girlfriend. But will Diana be coming back? –Adriana
Now that both Diana and her portrayer Marsha Thomason have delivered their babies, you can expect the character to resurface in this season’s final two episodes — and she won’t be alone. As Tim DeKay teases, “Eventually there’s a new cast member on the show — Diana has a baby, and it is the baby who helps one of our characters in an episode. That’s all I can say.”

I hear that David Boreanaz is directing an upcoming episode of Bones soon! Any deets on the ep title or what it is about? –Emma
The title and storyline thus far are under wraps, but I am able to confirm that he’s stepping back behind the camera for Episode 11.
