Did Pretty Little Liars creator Marlene King divulge A’s identity? Will there be wedding bells for Glee‘s Will and Emma? And are secrets about to come out on Castle? Plus more scoop and teases from these three shows.
Pretty Little Liars | If there’s one thing clear from the return of Pretty Little Liars, it’s that the Liars are mad as hell and not going to take it anymore. According to series creator Marlene King’s interview with The Insider, the winter premiere successfully “set the tone” for the rest of the season. “We really flipped things around and the girls are no longer victims. A’s phone is going to provide them with a wealth of information to lead them on the hunt for A.” But the discovery of A’s phone won’t be the only clue leading to some answers and finally the reveal of A’s identity in the season finale: “There’s something else the girls are about to find that are about to lead them to her.” Wait, her? Did King just reveal that A is a girl?!
But that’s not all, King then went on to drop a quick tease about Alison (Sasha Pieterse).”There’s also two parallel paths the girls take in 2B. There’s the ‘Hunt For A’ but they also find out something about Alison that they didn’t know and they start retracing her steps from the Halloween episode to her death. There’s a big revelation about Alison that is shocking and filled with mystery and fun also.” Hm, could this be the fact that Alison might actually be a twin? When asked, King coyly answered, “We live in the world of Rosewood, one Sarah Shepherd did a wonderful job of creating for us in her book series. So everything and anything is possible in this extraordinary world these PLL’s live in.” I’ll take that as a yes.
Glee | It’s been two years of on-again, off-again drama for Glee‘s Will (Matthew Morrison) and Emma (Jayma Mays), but when the show finally returns on Jan. 17 with the episode “Yes/No,” will Emma say yes to Will’s proposal? Speaking to Hollywood Reporter, Mays attempted to answer, “It’s that game that you play with one person feeling like, ‘Yes, yes, yes!’ while the other one’s like, ‘I’m not sure.’ Then the other is, ‘Yes, yes, yes!’ while the other is, ‘I’m not sure.’ That’s a running theme throughout this episode.” Sounds like they’re going to keep us guessing right up until the end. Ok, so what about the proposal itself? Morrison recently told TVLine: “All I can say is it’s wet. And it involves a big dance.” Curiouser and curiouser.
And fans of Glee‘s power couple Kurt (Chris Colfer) and Blaine (Darren Criss) can rest easy because rival Sebastian (Grant Gustin) will soon have bigger fish to fry at McKinley High. Speaking to TVLine, Gustin said, “It’s actually going less in a flirtatious direction [between Blaine and Sebastian], and more of [Sebastian] just being a d***.” In the upcoming Michael Jackson tribute episode, airing Jan. 24 and appropriately titled “Michael,” Sebastian will become the show’s “first male villain.” Then, just as any true villain would do, Gustin laughed about it to TVLine, “I do a majorly douche-y thing to one of the characters. So first off the fans are against me, and now the whole cast is against me.” I think we can all agree, there are just some characters you love to hate.
Castle | No matter how much progress Castle and Beckett have been making this season in their relationship, professional or otherwise, I can’t help but feel like there’s a dark cloud looming overheard. Beckett still needs to admit she remembers Castle’s “I love you.” from the season finale, and Castle needs to come clean about looking into her shooter on his own. So when might we see these two secrets revealed? Series creator Andrew W. Marlowe told TVLine that Castle’s secret “will resurface” by season’s end and “have an impact on their relationship.” Ouch. Well, what about Beckett? Marlowe teased, “Beckett’s secret might resurface even earlier.” I don’t know about you, but the order of these events doesn’t sound good at all.
Until that time, however, there is one thing we can be happy about, and that’s an upcoming Caskett kiss. In the special 1940s film noir episode “The Blue Butterfly,” set to air in Feb., Castle (Nathan Fillion) will have a delightful daydream about a detective who falls in love with a gangster’s moll. I’m sure I don’t have to tell you who’ll be playing these two very important roles. Stana Katic gushed to TVGuide about the moment, “What fans will see is probably the fulfillment of what most any fan would like to see happen with the Castle and Beckett relationship. Fans will be seeing the ultimate expression of love for those two characters.” Say it with me now: Aaw!
