Since Mondays are just the worst, we here at Zap2it
have decided to give your week a much-needed wake-up call with 10 TV
teasers — just to remind you that when the work day is over, your DVR
waits to welcome you home.
This week, our Monday Kickstart
includes “New Girl” flashback fun, a unique “Grey’s Anatomy” patient, and info about the end of the “Vampire Diaries” season.
“The Vampire Diaries”: Klaus, Rebekah, and Elijah will be heading to New Orleans in Episode 20 this season for “The Originals” spin-off episode… but that doesn’t mean they’re just going to stay in NoLa, killing time and waiting for the fall TV season. We can tell you that Episode 20 isn’t the last we’ll see of Klaus this season on “The Vampire Diaries.” Unfinished business in Mystic Falls, perhaps?
“New Girl”: The ongoing Cece-and-Schmidt saga could have turned out completely different. In an upcoming flashback episode, the show will reveal that Cece actually — very briefly — met Schmidt in 2004, when she was 22, and he was… well, fat. Could they have had a connection even then? (On an unrelated note — the season finale of “New Girl” is called “Downton Abbey Christmas Special.” Speculate away!)
“Nikita”: Toward the end of this season, we’ll meet Maryam Hasan, described as an “erudite, iron-willed Sudanese human rights activist.” She’s passionate in her fight against sex slavery and human trafficking, which obviously hits pretty close to home for Alex. And, naturally, there’s a highly trained assassin after her. Isn’t there always?
“The New Normal”: The upcoming hour-long “New Normal” finale night features the age-old dilemma of what to name the baby. Star Justin Bartha tells us, “I want to name the baby after somebody in my family, which is a goofy name. We disagree strongly on the baby name, as a lot of people do.”
“Archer”: The ISIS agents are off to retrieve a hydrogen bomb, with the help of Cheryl’s brother, Cecil Tunt. But it’s Pam who ends up needing the help — can Archer save her by performing a tracheotomy with a switchblade and a crazy straw?
“Grey’s Anatomy”: The season finale will feature an arrogant magician, Danny… er, Houdanny… whose wife is his beautiful assistant. When a trick goes seriously south and she’s gravely injured, he has to reevaluate their relationship. Let’s just say he isn’t the only master of illusions in their act.
“Justified”: Boyd and Ava still have Delroy’s body looming over their heads — and it comes to a head in the season finale. We don’t want to give away too much, but suffice to say that everyone’s favorite Kentucky “Bonnie & Clyde” couple is in for some rocky roads ahead.
“The Carrie Diaries”: When Carrie and Sebastian go to Madonna’s launch party, she expects to know everyone and have a great time. With Sebastian stuck outside the VIP area, Larissa in the kitchen looking for coke (they don’t have the kind she wants), and Bennett working, Carrie has to find conversation in a big “bear” of a man.
“Happy Endings”: Game night does not go how anyone expects in Friday’s “She Got Game” night. Brad and Jane don’t quite have the connection they expected (Hint: Jane’s favorite food is not soup), and lonely Max brings his pill-pushing stalker. But the biggest surprises are for Penny and Pete. Some surprises are good. Some are not so good.
“Suits”: In the second episode of the upcoming third season, Louis visits Mike at his apartment… and Mike doesn’t kick him out. In fact, with new lines being drawn between Mike and Harvey, we can expect that Louis and Mike may be developing a bond. Weird. They question a fundamental part of Harvey’s life — does Harvey truly love the law?
