Question: Got any scoop on the Lost finale? --Carolyn
Ausiello: Funny, we posed that exact question to Damon Lindelof at the Hollywood premiere of Star Trek earlier this week. "All I will say is that it is time for the time travel craziness to end," he said. "And once it does end, something very, very surprising will happen in its wake. It is a little bit of a game-changer."

Question: Any spoilers about Lost's season finale? Please! --Sarah
Ausiello: Funny, we posed that exact question to Damon Lindelof Jorge Garcia at the Hollywood premiere of Star Trek earlier this week. "People will find out why [Hurley] got on the plane and how he came to get that guitar case in his hands," he said. "I've been wondering about that, too. I remember at one point asking a question about it and getting a, 'We don't know yet.' I had to ask once, 'How heavy is it? Is it just a guitar? Is it something else? How heavy is it supposed to be?' Sometimes I get an empty case to lug around in a scene and sometimes it has a guitar in it, but we don't actually know what's in it because that has not been [revealed] yet. It could be a case full of food or money or guns or papers or anything. So you see me get the case by the finale, but I don't know that we will find out what's in it. It was hard for me to play because at first I did not understand why Hurley would have ever changed his mind about going back to the island, and I'm sure fans are thinking the same thing. So it will be nice to be able to give them that information."

Question: I am so obsessed with Fringe right now. Any mind-blowing scoop? --Mindy
Ausiello: Aside from it getting renewed for a second season? Let's see ... "Look for a very special gravestone and [take note of] whose name is on it," teases co-exec producer Roberto Orci of the May 12 finale. "My God [I just gave you] a big puzzle piece." No kidding. When we pressed Anna Torv about said gravestone she pleaded the Fifth. “I can't say anything about the grave. But that's a big plot [twist]. The grave is the key." Torv was more forthcoming about the drama coming up for Olivia and Walter. "A whole lot of information starts to come to light about the trials and Olivia's part in the larger puzzle," she reveals. "Olivia decides to push Walter to his breaking point in order to get answers. She wants to know what happened to her and what is going on. She pushes a couple of buttons and Walter gets a little out of sorts and reverts to some of his old ways. I'm glad because it would be no fun if Walter fully recovered from his mental illness. People love him because he is eccentric and brilliant."

Question: Thanks for the Emily Deschanel Q&A. Now tell us what she said about the triangle with Booth's bro! --Deb
Ausiello: The events of the season finale will further complicate the triangle, she told me. "Booth's suspicion of his brother and his inability to fully trust his brother [is heightened]. It will give us some different dynamics to play next season."

Question: Emily said the sex between Booth and Brennan isn't going to be a dream. What about a hallucination? --Maggie
Ausiello: She also confirmed that it is not a hallucination. I suspect it'll be something in between the two. A dreamination, if you will.

Question: Can you ask Emily Deschanel if, before joining Bones, she had read the books by Kathy Reichs? --Kim
Ausiello: Sorry, got your question too late. Can I interest you in this answer she gave me about the show traveling overseas again next season? "We're not traveling at the beginning of the season, but we may go away at the end of the season or the beginning of the next. The intention is to travel again. But the way the next season is going to begin it wouldn't make sense." Hmm ... the way next season is going to begin? There's a clue in there somewhere.

Question: Please, give me something about next week's season finale of House! --Angelina
Ausiello: There's so much I want to tell you I don't know where to begin. That's a lie, yes I do: There's a wedding!

Question: House-Cuddy scoop, please! Will I need tissues? --Eve
Ausiello: Probably. And just to be safe, pick up some mood stabilizers, because Monday's finale will have Huddy fans experiencing a wide range of emotions, including (but not limited to) happiness, sadness, and "I'll cut a bitch"-level anger.

Question: Please tell me House will see one last awesome Amber hallucination in next week's season finale! --Luke
Ausiello: Not only will Amber be back, but another memorable Princeton Plainsboro alum will descend from heaven to haunt House next week. Guesses? Head to the comments!

Question: Tell me something about the 24 finale. I'm dying to hear anything! --Ferlay
Ausiello: Can't help you with the finale. Can help you with Monday's penultimate ep, which finds Jack Bauer going all Jack Bauer on Tony. It's a brutal scene, so if extreme violence isn't your thing, run for cover right around the halfway point. Just make sure you come back in time to catch Chloe and Janis' hilarious sneer-off.

Question: 24 scoop, please? --Jacob
Ausiello: I actually do have something about the finale: Kim will play a major part in it. And you'll find out why next week.

Question: Show me … True Blood! --Daniel
Ausiello: EW's Whitney Pastorek asked the show's shirtless wonder, Ryan Kwanten, to sum up season 2 in just five words and, dang-it, the over-achiever did it in four! "Orgy, cult, locked up." I'm there, can't wait, and June 14 can't come soon enough!
