According to the diagram found on this site, chromosomes do unwind during Interphase II of meiosis. Sparknotes, although it's not necessarily a reputable scientific source, seems to concur: Once the nuclear envelope has re-formed after the first meiotic division, the cell enters a short interphase. This interphase is not as specific as mitotic ...
Mitosis: 1. Yes, the spindle fibers attach to centromeres at the prometaphase http://www.biology.arizona.edu/cell_bio/tutorials/cell_cycle/cells3.html Meiosis: 1. The nuclear membrane breaks down in Metaphase 1 and reforms during Telophase. It breaks down again in Prophase 2, reforming after that in Telophase 2 in the daughter cells. The spindles attach ...
