Ask the Addict: Spoilers for DEXTER, BONES, PERSON OF INTEREST, HART OF DIXIE & More!

Is there any chance at all that Sunday’s DEXTER makes up for last week’s snore of an episode? — Dillon
The TV Addict:If by “make up for,” you mean offer one of the most unexpected and uncomfortable plot twists in the series’ sordid history, than well yes, Sunday’s penultimate episode of the season is not to be missed. That said, having still not shaken of the after-affects of one of the most spine-tingling and stupefying scenes DEXTER has ever dared to deliver, we do feel it necessary to warn viewers that on a scale of “icky” to “grossest thing you can ever imagine,” Sunday’s episode is off the charts!

Any clues as to when Brennan will be delivering her baby on BONES? — Amy
The TV Addict:While we’re not 100% sure of this, all signs are pointing to Brennan delivering her baby when BONES returns from its post-January hiatus. What’s more, in typical BONES fashion, Brennan’s delivery won’t be nearly as smooth as one might have hoped. Which is to say, despite Booth wanting his baby born in a Catholic hospital and Brennan wanting a home birth in which she can maintain as much control over her environment as possible, the sill-nameless unexpected bundle of joy has other ideas.

Loving me some PERSON OF INTEREST, any scoop? — James
The TV Addict:Tonight’s flashback heavy episode of POI will shed some much needed light on the criminally underused Taraji P. Henson after the machine spits out Detective Carter’s name. And while we aren’t quite prepared to say precisely why Carter becomes this week’s person of interest, we can promise that the episode, appropriately titled “Get Carter,” provides for not just a very satisfying episode, but one that will forever change the way in which you look at one of the NYPD’s finest. Oh, and on the off chance that’s not enough of an incentive to get you to tune into one our favorite new shows of the Fall, Enrico Colantoni’s character returns in all his smarmy glory.

This big fan of Jewel Staite (FIREFLY4EVER!) is curious if you’ve heard anything about a premiere date for HIGHLAND GARDENS? — Arden
The TV Addict:Funny you should ask because just this morning we received word from our good friends at Epitome Pictures (The Production company behind the series) that the sexy new original series that follows the exploits of six attractive, young hopefuls in search of stardom in Hollywood didn’t just receive an air date, but a title change as well. Now called THE L.A. COMPLEX (Golf claps for the double entendré!), the series will premiere on both CTV and MuchMusic in Canada on January 10th, continuing Tuesdays at 9PM exclusively on MuchMusic.

Any chance RAISING HOPE creator Greg Garcia has an early Christmas gift up his sleeve in the form of some much-needed movement on the Jimmy/Sabrina relationship during next week’s midseason finale? — Nicole
The TV Addict:Unfortunately for you Jimmy/Sabrina shippers out there, having just spent the better part of the past twenty-two minutes laughing our butt off at Tuesday’s hysterical holiday-themed episode of RAISING HOPE, we are sorry to have to report that a perfectly placed mistletoe does not play a role in the episode. Of course, one shouldn’t take that as bad news necessarily, for what the episode lacks in romance, it more than makes up for by delivering one of the season’s best as a drunken Jimmy finds himself transported to an alt-reality where he discovers what would have happened to his family had he never met Hope’s serial killer mom Lucy. Hint: Think Fat Monica circa FRIENDS 1998.

As a fortunate mother of not just one, but two adoptive children, Julia’s story on PARENTHOOD continues to have me in hysterics. Please tell me she patches things up with coffee girl Zoe? — Renessa
The TV Addict:As much as we hate to be the bearer of bad news, when PARENTHOOD returns in 2012, it will do so with a decidedly different coffee GUY at Julia’s office. Zoe, at least for the time being, may be out of the picture.

A while back you alluded to a new relationship brewing within the Pawnee Government. Any chance you care to elaborate? — Lisa
The TV Addict:Since there is nothing we at theTVaddict.com love more than wild speculation, we’ll happily acquiesce to your request with a little Parks and Recreation Puzzler: The talented twosome who we never in a million years saw together may-or-may-not be one of the following city employees: Ron Swanson (Nick Offerman), Tom Haverford (Aziz Ansari), Ann Perkins (Rashida Jones), Chris Traeger (Rob Lowe), Wendy Haverford (Jama Williamson), Marlene Knope (Pamela Reed) and/or Donna Meagle (Retta).

As a HART OF DIXIE fan who is still reeling from Wade and Zoe’s final exchange on Monday’s episode. I have to ask, is there any hope at all for the two of them? — April
The TV Addict: Alas, when it comes to the love lives of Blue Bell’s most visually appealing residents, our crystal ball remains murky. Except of course when it comes to George and Lemon, whose already rocky relationship will hit a major speed-bump in 2012 when what may-or-may-not-be George’s last words to his hospitalized father are ones of anger as a result of Lemon’s war of words with both Ma and Pa Tucker.
