Parenthood: A Happy Homecoming, An Office Charmer, Wedding Woes and Other Takeaways – TV Show News

Parenthood Season 5 RecapThis week’s Parenthood finds Amber’s engagement news going over well with some of the Braverman brood, while Julia meets a prospective homewrecker (Hi, Office vet!) and Hank roars back into Sarah’s life with a subtle vengeance.

Here, we breakdown the seven key takeaways from the acclaimed NBC drama’s latest installment:

A Braverman “Welcome Home!” is better than all others. Finally back from his deployment, Ryan is greeted by all 647 family members with much fanfare. Zeke, in particular, embraces his veteran buddy with a very long (and very emotional) hug.

• David Denman is Roy Anderson no more. We love Sam Jaeger’s Joel as much as the next person, but Julia’s “meet cute” with the Office vet’s charming new character, Ed, was pretty darn precious. (How dare we, right?!) Even cuter is when the pair is put on parent volunteer duty together and inadvertently bonds over their respective once-flourishing, now non-existent careers.

A previously dense Hank gained a hefty dose of intuition during his time in Minnesota. After learning from Max that Amber has gotten engaged, the photog hightails it to Sarah’s just to see how his ex is taking the news. They don’t make any major strides toward a reconciliation, but Hank does treat her to a sweet housewarming gift and leaves her with some surprisingly good advice.

Jurnee Smollett-Bell on Parenthood > Jurnee Smollett-Bell on True Blood. As super-fans of the Friday Night Lights alumna, we’re thrilled to see that her fast-talking campaign manager fits right in with the Braverman clan. (Bonus points for believing so strongly in Kristina’s political dreams!)

Kristina and Adam feel the same way about her campaign — but for vastly different reasons. After some evasiveness, Adam comes clean about his hesitance to back her election: she almost died and he doesn’t want to risk her health again. Explains Kristina, “I almost died… but I didn’t! That’s exactly why I’m doing this.” Sadly, her passion can’t seem to sway his reluctance… yet.

Zeke and Camille need hobbies. After witnessing her husband’s hesitance to do some updates on their house, Camille proposes they finally downsize and go on an adventure (or 10). “This is it, Zeke,” she pleads. “This is the start of our Act 3.” Unfortunately, by episode’s end, the patriarch has yet to see it her way and bails on the conversation.

Amber and Ryan are going to have the best wedding ever, thanks to Mama With The Most Sarah Braverman. After assuaging her own concerns and asking her daughter if she’s sure she wants to spend her life with the soldier (“Without a doubt in my heart, 100 percent.”), Sarah finally comes around. “Then that’s all I need to know,” she cries. And with that, the mother/daughter pair bond over apple-tinis and bridal magazines, with Sarah vowing to help make her daughter’s dream day come true.

Parenthood Post Mortem: Is Happily Ever After Ahead for ‘Ryber’? Plus, More Season 5 Scoop – TV Show News

Parenthood - Season 5Are you still with us, Parenthood fans? Need a few more minutes to dry your eyes? Take all the time you need. We’ll just be over here with Season 5 premiere reactions – and scoop on what’s ahead — from stars Mae Whitman, Peter Krause and Sam Jaeger, as well as showrunner Jason Katims.

SOON-TO-BE WEDDED BLISS | Romantics at heart, rejoice: “Ryber” is engaged! Amber spends most of the premiere questioning her relationship with Army vet Ryan — who was deployed over the hiatus — but her doubts are put to rest when, in one epic, emotional moment, they are reunited. What’s more, he’s back with a ring and proposal! (She says yes, duh.)

Of the rather sudden engagement storyline, Katims jokes, “Mae told me to do it!” More seriously, the EP recalls, “When we brought Matt on and started the storyline last season, it was something we thought about as something that would be a few episodes… [But] I just found that the chemistry between them is so great. The work that Matt had done to prepare for the role, the idea of what was going on in [Ryan’s] past, felt so real that it’s something we wanted to continue to explore.” Whitman, for her part, couldn’t be more excited about Ryan and Amber’s marital plans. “Amber’s changed so much [over the seasons], and it’s such a gift to be on a TV show where the changes stick and people grow; you actually really feel like these people have learned things.” Noting that “last year was one of the first years we got to see Amber really happy,” the actress “loved the idea of her having a partner… The idea of Amber and Ryan being something that stuck and lasted and connected, it’s beautiful and great to watch.”

OBSTACLES BEFORE THE ALTAR | As is often the case for the Braverman brood, the newly betrothed twosome won’t have an easy road ahead. “That’s exactly the story that we wanted to tell, the story where you have these two people who clearly love each other and are so right for each other, but that they’re very young,” Katims teases. “There are definitely things in Ryan’s past, and Amber’s past for that matter, that make it not be cut-and-dried that this is the right thing to do, and there are people in the family who start to question that and bring up those points… When you have people with very different opinions who are both right, who both have very good points, those always seem like the strongest stories for this kind of show.”

Look for Sarah, in particular, to take issue with the impending nuptials, shares the showrunner, who notes that he missed the Sarah/Amber dynamic last season. “This was a way to bring those two back together; if you’ve got to plan a wedding, there’s going to be scenes together — and they’re not all going to be happy scenes. And similarly, I thought there’d be opportunities for Ryan to have scenes that are not just with Amber.” However, adds the ever-optimistic Whitman, “Obviously there will be issues, but I think it’s nice anytime [Ryan and Amber] get to be around each other and spend time together and make up for lost time.”

HALTED HANK-Y PANKY | Katims reveals that “Sarah will eventually get involved in Hank’s storyline, and it will develop again over time,” but for now, the latter will continue to spend time with young Max. “We were charmed by the idea of Max and Hank together,” he shares. “It made sense to us and seemed believable to me.”

FOR PETE’S SAKE | “On any other show, [Sonya Walger’s Pete and Joel] would be making out wildly in her second appearance,” Jaeger laughs. Instead, Pete’s already worrisome presence “is just something that feels natural and it feels lived in… We’ll see [Joel and Julia’s marriage] be tested, but not in an obvious way. It’s just a relationship that’s starting to fray a little bit.”

THE MAYOR’S MAN | Krause has an explanation for Adam’s hesitance about Kristina’s choice to run for mayor: “He wants to be supportive of his wife, but he also wants to be careful with her health. It’s a big decision and, from his point of view — probably from Kristina’s, too, if she’s honest with herself — slightly unrealistic. But he’s fueled by having had some contact with mortality.” Adds Katims, Kristina’s career change “affects Adam… his own life and what he’s doing. That comes up later in the season, with him at work.”

Ask Ausiello: Rookie Blue, Castle, SVU, Justified, Nikita, TVD, Parenthood, HIMYM and More! – TV Show News

Justified Season 5Got a scoop request? An anonymous tip you’re dying to share? Send any/all of the above to

Question: Dude. Justified. Hit me. —Don
Ausiello: For Season 5, the FX drama is going back to the Cuckoo Crime Family From Hell conceit popularized by the Bennetts of Season 2 (RIP, Mags). This time around, we’ll be introduced to the white trash Florida-based Crowe clan, led by the sexy, charismatic and ruthless fortysomething patriarch Dale. Officially, the Crowes run a gator farm. Unofficially, they deal drugs and murder people and stuff. Dale’s inner circle includes sister Wendy (the public face of the family) and younger brother Danny (described as a romantic sociopath). Got casting tips? Hit the comments!

Question: Let’s assume Kate takes the job in DC on Castle. How long might the stint last before she returns to the 12th precinct? —Megan
Ausiello: If she takes the job in the nation’s capital — and that’s still a big if — I’ll hazard a guess that she’ll stay put for somewhere between two and five episodes.

Question: Do you have any info on NCIS, Castle or The Mentalist? –Jang
Ausiello: I choose Door No. 2! Lisa Edelstein told our Matt Mitovich that, regardless of how her character — a federal agent who factors into Beckett’s career conundrum — gets on with Kate, she and Stana Katic became the fastest of friends during her three-episode guest-starring turn. “I really didn’t want to do an arc on a show without really investing as much as I could in it, so I walked onto that show with a lot of ideas and wanting to create a real character — and Stana was psyched about that,” the House alumna happily reports. “Those things can go many different directions,” she adds with a laugh, “so I was really happy that she was so gracious.”

VDQuestion: Any scoop on Janina Gavankar’s Vampire Diaries character? —Justine
Ausiello: I hear she’s a real *itch.

Question: Too early for some scoop on season three of Dallas? —Dylan
Ausiello: Actually, your timing is perfect. I just learned that the show is adding a major new female character in Season 3, which starts shooting Oct. 2. The newbie, Heather, is described as a “freckle-faced tomboy” who works as a ranch hand and has a history of making terrible choices when it comes to men. Rumor has it she’s attracted to bad boys, so that noise you hear is the sound of J.R.’s harem expanding. (Hear it?!)

Question: Nikita scoop, please? Am I right to assume these last six episodes are going to blow us away? —Steph
Ausiello: Yes, you are absolutely, 100 percent right to assume that. You would also be absolutely, 100 percent right to assume that our titular heroine, who went MIA in the finale, will rejoin the team sooner versus later. “The first episode starts with her on the run,” previews co-star Lyndsy Fonseca. “And by the end of it, she’s back with the team.” Bonus Scoop: We hear Nik is keeping company with a pretty rough crowd during her time on the lam.

Question: Loved Sleepy Hollow and thrilled it did so well in the ratings. Got anything on Episode 2? —Henry
Ausiello: Though he very much died in the premiere, we have by no means seen the last of John Cho’s Andy.

Question: Please tell me that you have something about Zoe and Wade’s future in Season 3 of Hart of Dixie? Will they be back together at some point? – Lindsey
Ausiello: I’m sure they’ll get back together at some point. But for now, my hunch is Zoe will have her hands full (not literally because that would be dirty) with Josh Cooke’s new Joel character, whom Dixie creator Leila Gerstein says will be around “for a major arc.” Gerstein doesn’t outright confirm that Joel is coming in as a love interest for ex-Manhattanite Zoe, but her description of him as a “New Yorker moving to Bluebell” paints a pretty conclusive picture, no?

Will and GunnarQuestion: I love Chris Carmack on Nashville. What can you tell me about Will’s love life this season? —Andy
Ausiello: You already know that Will is going to spend some time hooking up trying to figure out what his heart really wants, but showrunner Dee Johnson says that despite their awkward encounter on the couch last season, none of Will’s angst will involve Gunnar. “They worked through it, shockingly and admirably,” she tells TVLine. “I don’t think we’re in a situation going forward where he’s going to be pining for Gunnar. They’re friends. Genuine friends.”

Question: I’d love some scoop on the Miles/Rachel dynamic on Revolution this season. Any movement with these two? —Claire
Ausiello: “It’s going to go back and forth a bit, as those things do,” Billy Burke shares with a wink. As Season 2 opens — dropping a big piece hint along the way that things were hot-n-heavy ‘tween the two in the past — “It’s a little chilly, and then it warms up a bit,” Burke says. “And then things ensue that cause another rift.”

Question: I might’ve been the only person watching Whitney, but I really miss Whitney Cummings. Any chance she’ll take a more active role – maybe even on screen? – in 2 Broke Girls? —Rena
Ausiello: Even though the comedienne has “got so much DNA in the show” she co-created, executive producer Michael Patrick King says, “she’s touring and doing her stand-up.” (That would be a “no,” then, Rena.) If it’s any consolation, King adds that Cummings “may write a couple of scripts.”

Question: I spent all summer figuring out how SVU will #SaveBenson! Any hints on the premiere? –Erica
Ausiello: It’s “harrowing, challenging and worthwhile,” says Dan Florek of the two-hour opener, which picks up right where the finale left off — with Mariska Hargitay’s Benson being held at gunpoint by William “Burnt Fingertips” Lewis. “I had no idea what was going to happen [in the premiere],” adds the actor, “so when we sat down and read it, first of all I was very moved by it and challenged by it. And then I thought, ‘Boy, Mariska is in for a rough ride.’” Meanwhile, even though the episode is two hours, executive producer Warren Leight says he’s “hesitant to call it a ‘two-parter,’” despite the fact that “the story plays out over both episodes. “That’s very different for SVU. We usually wipe the screen clean after each episode.”

Question: Will Sarah Ramos be back for Season 5 of Parenthood? —Jesus
Ausiello: I answered this Q a few weeks back, but I’ll let Jason Katims confirm it himself. P’hood‘s boss tells us there are no current plans for Haddie to pay the family a visit. “It’s always a question of finding the right story combined with Sarah’s availability,” he adds. “We sort of dealt with this a lot starting on Friday Night Lights, where so many of our characters wound up graduating from high school and sort of leaving the show, and sometimes coming back for either one or a series of episodes, or sometimes a lot of episodes.”

Question: Will Robin Daggers’ How I Met Your Mother encore be set in the present or will it be a flashback? The presence of William Zabka in this pic makes me think it’s the former. —Tessa
Ausiello: I assumed the same. But then I sniffed around and found out it’s another flashback. So I guess I made an ass out of U and someone named Med?

Bones weddingQuestion: Any Bones wedding scoop? —Cara
Ausiello: How about a first look at the groom! (Photo Credit: David Boreanaz)

Question: The Rookie Blue finale was nuts. Got anything to tide us over until Season 5? Have we seen the last of Marlo? —Georgia
Ausiello: Although the writers room doesn’t start up until October — production starts later than usual in January to match the winter setting of the Season 4 finale — and no storyline decisions are set, executive producer Tassie Cameron concedes that Marlo’s professional future looks murky. “We have really, really loved that character,” she says. “That character grew on us. And [Rachael Ancheril] is incredible and lovely. That moment at the end when she cries at the lockers is one of my favorite moments of the episode, for sure. But it would be very hard to imagine her having a regular police job after this. So we’ll have to figure that out.”

Question: Can I get some Mindy Project scoop? — Felipe
Ausiello: Danny will be issuing a Stalker Alert in November when his crazy eyed ex-girlfriend — who also happens to be his neighbor — becomes obsessed with him. In an effort to neutralize Psycho Amy, Mindy poses as Danny’s GF – which creates a whole new crisis.

Question: Is there a chance Warlow will return to True Blood next season as a ghost? Perhaps to win Sookie’s redemption to move on? —Tom
Ausiello: There’s a chance, but it’s a very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very slim one.
