Welcome to the Spoiler Room, asafe place for spoiler addicts to come on a weekly basis to learn what’s coming next on their favorite shows and, hopefully, get a few of their own questions answered. If you want scoop on a specific show, send your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Is Lucifer definitely back in the cage on Supernatural?? — Sara
At this point, it’s less about where Lucifer is than the fact that he has a child on the way. “In terms of Lucifer: he’s a character that even when he’s back in the cage, he’s been active in our world,” showrunner Andrew Dabb says. “I think the fact that he’s got a kid rolling around out there, he’s not dead. He is still a player in some ways. I think we’re dealing with a world where even if Lucifer is off the table in some ways, his influence will still be felt. In episode 12, we’re introducing a fun extension of our mythology. Some long-forgotten Lucifer lore may come out of the woodwork now that his kid is kind of up for grabs.” Now the question becomes: Who should play him?
What the Huck is coming up with my favorite OPAer on Scandal this season? — Marion
You could say there’s some good news coming up for Huck — I, however, trust no one, so I’m expecting this to turn out poorly. “Someone’s coming into Huck’s life,” Guillermo Diaz says. “He hasn’t had a partner in a long time — like a lover, or a girlfriend, or wife for a while. So someone comes into his life that he really likes.” You can get much more Scandal scoop in this week’s issue of EW, where my Shondaland cohort Lynette Rice breaks down those shocking premiere twists with Shonda Rhimes and the cast!
Anything Hawaii Five-0? — Liza
I can exclusively reveal that Hootie & the Blowfish frontman Darius Rucker will guest star in episode 18 this season.

The U.S. government has been chasing him for years, except he’s not just a bomb maker — while the CIA was training rebels in Syria, Gamal was training ISIS and Boko Haram. Someone recently went to a lot of trouble to sneak him into Hawaii, so here’s hoping McGarrett and the team can track him down!
Will we get more info on Lucy’s journal soon on Timeless? — Hayley
Yes, and very soon! “This is the time now that we’re going to be finding out a lot in the next couple of episodes,” Goran Visnjic tells me. “We’re going to be traveling into some cool time periods and meeting some really interesting people, but also we’re going to find out a lot about everybody. Lucy’s going to come in touch with the real journal, that is completely empty, very soon. What’s she going to put in there? How far ahead the cooperation between Flynn and Lucy is happening, we don’t know that. It might be 20 years from now or three years from now because things are changing so fast. We’re going to get a lot of answers.”
When is How to Get Away with Murder going to address that Bonnie-Annalise kiss? — Ronald
Well, Annalise is in jail and a little preoccupied, so it might be a while. “Their relationship is one of the key relationships of the show to me,” EP Pete Nowalk tells me, raising some very important questions: “Is that the first time they’ve kissed? Have they done more? The other thing is that kiss means nothing in the
