The expectation is that the WGA could call off the strike as soon as Monday, depending on how things go. Keep in mind that just because the WGA leadership calls off the picketing, it doesn't mean all is settled. The full WGA membership will still have to vote on the new contract. Will it pass a majority vote of the membership? If for some reason it doesn't pass, well, then everything is up in the air again. But, once the picketing stops, everyone can go back to work. (And teamsters can make deliveries.)
Since no one has actually seen the new contract proposal yet, it's all just speculation at this point. But, the general expectation appears to be that this is wrapping up. Yet, one can't really know what's going on until everyone examines the deal in detail.
Meanwhile, it was Sci-Fi Channel Day at NBC in Burbank on Wednesday, and Mark Verheiden and Charlie Craig of Eureka along with Ron Moore and Joss Whedon were all attending.
