Kevin Feige tells /Film that the show will fill in how Nick Fury managed to find a working Helicarrier to use, during the climax of Age of Ultron:
Now, when Nick Fury goes away and comes back with a Helicarrier, that seems like a big chunk of off screen story. Is that something we might see referenced on SHIELD?
Feige: I think it’s fair to say you could fill in some of those blanks in the coming weeks on Tuesday at 9.
Candice Patton discusses the fallout from Iris finally discovering The Flash’s identity:
I think she’s shocked. Hurt. Angry. And now she’s putting everything together, all of those meetings she has had with The Flash on rooftops, at Jitters, and realizing that those conversations were with Barry. Her whole world is kind of upside-down.
TVLINE | Will things slow down enough, so to speak, anytime soon for her and Barry to talk about this?
Yeah, [this week] especially you will see that Iris is actively going to confront Barry about being The Flash and keeping that secret from her — and subsequently, having that same conversation with Joe. These are two men in her life who were supposed to be honest with her. This is the only family that she really has, the people you’re supposed to trust the most, so for them to have been in cahoots…. She’s going to feel very, very angry and betrayed.
Variety is reporting that Orlando Jones has departed the series, and will not appear in the third season.
Here’s a synopsis for the season finale, “Operation Mongoose”:
HENRY IS CALLED UPON TO RESTORE THE BALANCE BETWEEN HEROES AND VILLAINS, IN THE TWO-HOUR SEASON FINALE OF ABC’S “ONCE UPON A TIME”
“Operation Mongoose, Part 1 and Part 2” – The Author proves to be a formidable wild card and forges an alliance with Gold. Emma, her parents, Hook and Regina scramble to stop them, but when Gold and the Author turn the tables on heroes and villains alike, the prospect of any happy outcome appears worlds away. Henry discovers he has big shoes to fill as he steps up to save his family before the story’s final page is turned. It’s a race to the finish, and everything culminates with a shocking twist that will leave the residents of Storybrooke reeling, in the captivating two-part season finale of “Once Upon a Time.”
And here are some promotional pictures from the episode. [Spoiler TV]
TV Guide teases what’s to come in the season finale:
“The finale features the potential death of up to three major characters,” executive producer Jonathan Nolan teases.
But perhaps more surprising than the deaths is the show’s latest shift in terms of how bad the “bad guys” are. And before you jump to conclusions about who might meet an untimely end, you might be wise to also consider what could be lost in the battle. Let’s just say the show, which has yet to be renewed for a fifth season, ends with a cliff-hanger that could be maddening if the renewal gods don’t shine on Person of Interest.
Will Forte discusses how much Jason Sudekis’ character will appear in Season 2:
I don’t know. He’s a busy man. We have talked about stuff before and we’ll probably have another conversation, but I would not expect him to be in every episode of Last Man on Earth. [Laughs] He’s a good friend, he’s good friends with a lot of people who work at the show, so I think he had fun coming in. We also don’t want to take advantage of that friendship. We have an idea and we’ve talked a little bit about it.
Here’s an episode synopsis for “Newer Elements of Our Defense” and some promotional stills. [Spoiler TV]
