Megan in Toluca Lake: Wow. Wow. Wow. Wow. The new Lost promo is insane. Will we really find out why they are on the Island? And what is up with Locke?

As you know, I just got back from the show's set in Oahu and I'll be hurling a whole slew of scoop at you tomorrow, plus posting the first Lost Redux tomorrow night. But in the meantime, can we just talk about the awesomeness that is Terry O'Quinn?

In the promo above, you see that Terry's character will most likely be the one to reveal what the Island is, and what the whole show has been about. Holy. Freaking. Goosebumps. When I was on the set in Hawaii, I saw quite a few scoopy reveals (and signed a confidentiality agreement to go along with it), but I was kindly escorted off set before they shot a big night scene with Matthew Fox and Terry. Terry talks about that very scene in the video clip above and adds: "It was four pages of the history of the Island." How awesome does that sound?

As you know by now, Terry is playing someone other than John Locke when the show returns tomorrow night. So who is he? Terry's clue (which almost caught the eye of producer Carlton Cuse—whoopsie!) will give confirmation to some of you, and get others of you thinking. It's not too spoilery, but it's fun and it's all in the video at top. Keep reading down below for a little more Lost scoop...

Randall in Omaha: What did you think of the premiere?
More on that tomorrow, but it's probably my favorite episode since the pilot. If anyone of you were in Hawaii and saw it, let me know what you thought in the comments below (without giving away any spoilers, please!). And check back tomorrow for more scoop.

UnofficialME via Twitter: What's next for Joss Whedon now that Dollhouse is over? Any chance that we'll know his next project soon?
Unfortunately no, but Joss did give us a few hints right before he and Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog were honored at last week's Producers Guild Awards. "Dr. Horrible turned from the little engine that could, to the little engine that destroyed Tokyo!," said the humbled show runner of the award. "For [producers] to honor it, and what we're continuing to try and accomplish on the Internet, means a great deal to me, because I see a lot of my future there. A lot of what I hope to accomplish in the next few years taking place there." Joss also confirmed that there won't be a Dollhouse comic. "We've done some comic books with Dr. Horrible, and it leads itself to it and it's really fun. Dollhouse really doesn't," he explained. "It's about people's personality change, which is very hard to draw. It isn't a comic book world. Dollhouse was Dollhouse, and now is next."

Corinne in Seattle: Could you tell Merlin fans that Syfy will air season two starting April 2 and will rerun the first season in March to catch up new fans of the show? I've seen the entire second season, and it is fantastic and much better than the first, and I can't wait until it comes to the U.S.
Thanks so much for the news, but I double-checked with Syfy and got back, "We cannot confirm Merlin." That doesn't mean that Syfy won't eventually confirm that they've picked up Merlin, but so far it remains unofficial. I hope this happens, though—that kid who plays Arthur is like Jesse Spencer with an English accent...and a sword.

David in Rhode Island: Will there be resolution about Claire and Jack? Will he find out they're related?
According to Matthew Fox, yes! He says the fans will be satisifed and that will not be left hanging.

Edward in New York: Will Ben Linus get any more honest this season?
According to Michael Emerson, no. "I have always meant to be forthright, it's just that sometimes you get in a pinch and your mission requires that you fudge the truth a ilttle and get things done!" That said, when you meet the new big bad you will see that Ben is a cowering puppy dog in comparison.

Emily in Tallahassee, Fla.: I'm not expecting a big makeout scene, but is there any hint of Olivia/Peter coming up in Fringe?
Ahem. Everybody must watch this week's Fringe (but especially you Emily in Tallahassee, Fla.) even if you've been wavering a bit on that series. Something that we've been waiting to see since the pilot finally (finally!) happens. The scenes in question are totally gratifying (albeit rushed a bit, when this subplot might have been better served with a little foreplay preamble), but then what we are given is snatched away again, in totally heartbreaking and perfect TV form. Excellent work, Bad Robots. Can't wait to see what happens next.

Montserrat in Glendale, Calif.: Please tell me this Cuddy-Lucas liaison is almost over on House. I can't stand it anymore!
OK, the bad news is that next Monday's House ep, "5 to 9," is Cuddy-centric and therefore riddled with Cuddy-Lucas PDA. Blech. On the other hand, the good news is that "5 to 9" is Cuddy-centric and therefore riddled with scenes that reveal House and Cuddy's genuine emotional and psychological intimacy, and that remind us fans why she loves that dude's deranged narcissistic ass in the first place. If you Huddy fans can just squint through the Cuddy-Lucas scenes, you'll find that when you come out the other side, the Huddy material is very rewarding.

Pete in Phoenix: Give me an update on House, stat!
Look for actor-comedian Orlando Jones to pop up in tonight's House, bringing along a few surprises for his brother, Foreman (Omar Epps). We checked into reports that Orlando will possibly be back on a full-time basis next year, but a House rep tells us that the writers don't yet know anything past this season. So for now, Foreman's big bro is only expected to show up once.

Cynthia in Merced, Calif.: I love that Renee is back on 24. Any chance she and Jack will find some real love this time around?
We'll let Annie Wersching (Renee) take this one: "I think fans will be pleased." Whoot! You heard it here first, folks, but it's not all romance for the two throughout 24's eighth season. "This day, they go through a lot of stuff again that brings them closer together. So they have their own interesting relationship," Annie explains. We're down for a badass Renee and Jack Bauer hookup anytime—even if she is supercreepy this year.

Abby in Wisconsin: Big Love is delightful this year. What's to come?
Ana (Branka Katic) is coming back! We'll see the Henricksons' fourth wife again on the Valentine's Day episode, and she comes with a "surprising revelation" that probably has something to do with the fact that she's engaged to be married—to someone else. Tramp!

Jessalyn in Butte, Neb.: I can't wait for next week's flashback episode of Vampire Diaries. Is anything revealing going to happen?
How does this sound? This week's The Vampire Diaries reveals one of the biggest secrets of all: What actually happened to make Damon and Stefan hate each other? "We get to see the incident that drove them apart for the first time," says show runner Julie Plec. Ooh, "the incident"? sounds a little Lostish! Also, we'll see Dexter's James Remar for the first time as Papa Salvatore. Let's just hope he lives by a very different code than Harry Morgan!

Dru in Chicago: Tell us more abut this Vampire Diaries "incident."
All right, but I feel the need to throw out another spoiler alert warning before revealing the following: The incident that tore Damon and Stefan apart involves their mutual love of a certain Elena look-alike vampire. Turns out, Stefan might inadvertently be the reason Katherine was locked up in the tomb, hence Damon's desire to free her, and his unexplained hatred of his little bro.

Lamar in Dahoga, Pa.: Can you tell us anything about Leverage? It's such an underrated series.
Luke Perry guest stars as a clairvoyant con man on this week's ep, and fans of the former heartthrob will not be disappointed. Most of Perry's scenes are with Jeri Ryan, and Luke just can't say enough about her. "Jeri Ryan and I had a great time. When you're the guest cast, you never really know how it'll be, but it was good," he tells us. Obviously it's Leverage, so they tend to catch the bad guy in the end, but might Luke be back again? Here's what he says: "I just sort of play it as it comes. But we may get together on something down the road." And there you have it.
