Below are some spoilers for the end of October and Early November for several ABC shows. So far I am watching “Nashville,” but haven’t officially added it. As usual most of the new shows I’ve chosen to watch are doing horrid in the ratings (“666 Park Avenue!”), and the ones I can’t seem to get into already have been given a full season (“Revolution on NBC”).
In this bunch . . . .
- On “Once Upon A Time,” Emma’s past is revealed, and Jorge Garcia guests as “The Giant.”
- On “Revenge,” it looks like Emily and Amanda are having trouble keeping the truth a secret, but we know it won’t come out.
- On “666,” a pivotal episode leads Jane to learn how she and her past is connected to The Drake!
- On “Castle,” Castle ends up the suspect of a murder!
- On “Private Practice,” Alfre Woodard guests as Sam’s mom, as Sam begins staring in a reality show which causes issues for the other doctors.
- On “Grey’s Anatomy,” Jackson’s mom Catherine returns! Also Derek faces the fact he may never operate again . . . This storyline likely paves the way to introduce Neve Campbell who is set to guest as one of his sisters, many suspect the sister who went into psychiatry.
Read on for all the spoilers . . .
