There are two positives about Mondays: 1) I know an entire week of good TV programming awaits me. And 2) I know it’s the day I answer your questions! Yes, it’s actually fun.

The Arrow cast was out in full force during New York Comic-Con this weekend. (Also, this sizzle reel? AWESOME!) And I was lucky enough to snag a few minutes backstage with Stephen Amell and Katie Cassidy so they could answer a few questions for fans who made the premiere a record-breaker.
‘AMERICAN HORROR STORY’: FIVE JUICY TEASES
Can’t wait for American Horror Story? Good; you should be very excited. Oh, and terrified. As the first five minutes hinted this season is even sexier, scarier and more sinister than season 1. That said, because there’s so much brand new about this season, it’s hard to tease without giving a great deal away. So I took 5 FAQ from my inbox:
‘PERSON OF INTEREST’ SCOOP FROM NYCC
Also at New York Comic Con this weekend? The gang from Person of Interest, who participated in a panel conducted by my colleague Ken Tucker. And after the fun, the cast and creator Jonathan Nolan sat down with reporters to give a few tastes of things to come. (Thanks to everyone who answered my Saturday morning call for questions!)
On Root’s return:
Root (Amy Acker) said she’d be back and her promise will reign true, says Nolan, “it’s just a question of when and how.” As for whether that will happen before midseason, Nolan said coyly, “no comment.” Also, in case you missed it, Mark Pellegrino is going to guest!
While the core four will remain on the same side, Nolan hinted at a few fractures to come. “We have four characters who like each other, understand each other — still have lots of secrets there — but they’re allies… you gotta throw a winkle in there eventually,” teases Nolan. “Expect things to take a turn for the worst.”
Fusco vs. Carter?
“Carter is a natural detective. She’s never going to be satisfied with being kept at arm’s length,” says Nolan of Carter’s instincts to seek out the truth when it comes to her dealings with Finch and Reese. And in the third episode, Nolan teased that viewers will see her approach directly conflict with Fusco’s method of operation. “They have a somewhat different philosophy about just how far they should push that issue,” he says.
