Below are the short and sweet spoilers for several ABC shows over the next month as we enter sweeps period. Things I’m looking forward to?
-I’m really looking forward to the return of “Body of Proof.” It won’t be the same without the police force we’ve come to love (I’ll miss you most Peter!), but I’m hoping we’ll get back to the long ignored mystery of Megan’s father’s death.
- On “Castle” I’m looking forward to some amazing guest stars, including Gina Torres from “Firefly” as well as the return of Jack Coleman as the man responsible for the murder of Beckett’s mom. Will we finally put that storyline to rest?
- On “Nashville,” things are finally gunna heat up between Rayna and Deacon it seems! Why do I feel that one of her kids is his?
- While “Practice” is over, “Grey’s Anatomy” continues. It seems the fight to save the hospital from shutting down is the major theme over the next month.
- I’m really looking forward to the return of “Once Upon A Time” and hopefully learning who Rumples son is. Hmmm, Emma and Gold in New York City? That’s where the season began with the shot of Henry’s dad, no?
- I pretty much have given up on “Revenge.” I really have tried to like it, but I just don’t find myself all that into. I haven’t watched it in weeks, and seemingly have no desire to catch up on it.
Read on and enjoy!
