What can I expect to find if I open up the wall above the fireplace (behind the T.V.)? Brick, wood studs, etc..

This is an exterior wall.

You probably have studs and drywall/plaster like the rest of the wall and a cutout where the fireplace is mounted with the chimney going up the outer wall. The brick and mantel probably go back to the unfinished wall.
