Showrunner Bruno Heller talked about the relationship between Bruce (David Mazouz) and Selina (Camren Bicondova):

Their relationship grows, develops and changes; they have their ups and downs. They have such a wonderful contrast to each other. Camren is full of such wonderful light and energy, and has this cocky arrogance about her. She's incredibly compelling to watch. David is thoughtful, interior, intense and passionate, and the two of them together — you could make a great movie just with the two of them.


He also previewed the rest of the season, including Edward Nygma's growing role:

You're going to see Nygma take a giant step forward into becoming the man he becomes. You're going to see Fish Mooney placed in a situation where it's almost unimaginable how she'll get out of it. Her relationship with Butch and Penguin are going to be pushed to the limit. Selina Kyle's going to do something incredibly shocking — also, so's Fish, come to that. One of the things about the second half of the season is that all the story we've set up so far comes to fruition. Some people come to an end, other people are triumphant. Gordon is…no, I can't go there. I almost told you the story, and I can't. But I guarantee that, if you liked the first half of the season, you'll love the second half.

The 100

Henry Ian Cusick (Kane) talked about what the fall-out from the midseason finale will be:

Clarke and Raven are probably the biggest ones affected by Finn's passing, but for the group there are also repercussions for how we deal with the Grounders. I don't want to give anything away but, of course we've now done what the Grounders asked, we gave them Finn – well he volunteered to sacrifice himself – so we're now in a position to have dialogue with the Grounders and hopefully peace will ensue and we can move ahead.

And that's what we've always wanted, we've wanted to live in peace with the Grounders. That hopefully will happen, but you'll just have to wait and see whether it does.


He also talked about what they've filmed so far and what the rest of the season looks like:

So, we've shot up until episode fourteen, I think they're filming fifteen at the moment and sixteen is the finale. So when you come back, it's fast and furious and we're going to pick up exactly where we left off. Things move at such a pace of such a lick that it's pretty much just non-stop excitement, and it just gets better and stronger and more riveting, and it's just going to build up to a big crescendo at the end.

The show is very strong for its female characters, with all the leaders, and it has a lot of strong, powerful women in it. So it's interesting for the men to see where their place lies in the show. I'm watching at the moment to see how that works out.

Agents of SHIELD

Sources tell io9 that a call sheet for episode 2.14 includes a scene where Agent 33 has gotten her hands on a working camouflage mask — but instead of Melinda May's face, she's got Skye's. Grant Ward is "displeased" by this turn of events.

Here's the sizzle reel for 2015:

The Whispers

Here's the synopsis for ABC's new show:

We love to play games with our children. But what happens when someone else starts to play with them, too? Someone we don't know. Can't see. Can't hear. In "The Whispers," someone - or something - is manipulating the ones we love most to commit the unthinkable.

In the country's center of political power, Washington D.C., several kids have been talking about their imaginary friend, Drill. What the parents don't know is that this friend is not as imaginary as they think. And when the mysterious games Drill convinces them to play turn dangerous, FBI child specialist Claire Bennigan is called in to investigate. Claire is still grieving over the death of her husband, Sean, who was killed when his military jet mysteriously crashed. And she's still getting used to being a single parent to her son, Henry, whose hearing was lost due to an illness. But what she doesn't know is that Henry has also been secretly speaking with Drill.

Is this just a case of children being led down the wrong path? Or is there something far more unsettling as Claire searches for the answer?

Defense Department operative Wes Lawrence's life, as well as the lives of his wife Lena and daughter Minx, has been turned upside-down ever since Lena discovered that her loving husband had been having an affair with Claire. But life as they knew it will never be the same when Wes travels halfway across the world, to the middle of the Sahara Desert, and unearths a strange, haunting geological phenomenon; unlike anything he has ever seen. Are these mysteries connected?

The answer will force everyone to face their greatest fear. That perhaps the enemy is already in their homes. Minx, too, has begun to secretly communicate with Drill. What is it that Drill wants, and why does he – or it – only communicate with children? As the clock counts down, a suspenseful race will begin to save not only their families, but the world. Before it's too late.

"The Whispers" stars Lily Rabe as Claire Bennigan, Barry Sloane as Wes Lawrence, Milo Ventimiglia as John Doe/Sean Bennigan, Derek Webster as Jessup Rollins, Kristen Connolly as Lena Lawrence, Kylie Rogers as Minx Lawrence and Kyle Harrison Breitkopf as Henry Bennigan.

"The Whispers" is executive produced by Steven Spielberg, Justin Falvey, Darryl Frank and Zack Estrin. The pilot was written and co-executive produced by Soo Hugh, who also created the series. "The Whispers" is produced by ABC Studios, with Amblin TV as co-producer.
