The Monday Playlist: Warehouse 13 Returns, Fox's Serial-Killer Finales, ABC Soaps Go Online

Even with the clock ticking on a looming medical apocalypse, a worldwide pandemic of fatal "English Sweating Sickness" initiated by the unleashing of a magical Black Orchid thingamabob, Syfy's quirky fan fave Warehouse 13 manages to find time to crack wise about the end of the world.

"It's always 'ultimately death,'" Agent Pete (Eddie McClintock) bemoans when clued in about just how nasty the disease is that has infected the entire team and much of the rest of the planet. "Artifacts never release a plague of tickles or an epidemic of kittens." A plague of tickles: not a bad way to describe this tongue-in-cheek supernatural lark which pulls out all the guest-star stops in an eventful episode (Monday, 10/9c) by Drew Z. Greenberg that kicks off the second half of Season 4 with Evil Artie's (Saul Rubinek) life and soul also in jeopardy. read more

Monday Playlist: Silence Is Golden on Switched at Birth

Alarms are sounded several times, but we never hear them, in a tremendously effective and thematically overdue episode of ABC Family's best-of-network Switched at Birth (8/7c), which unfolds almost entirely in American Sign Language. By necessity, actions speak louder than words — all in subtitles, or sometimes tweets — as the deaf and hard-of-hearing students at Carlton School for the Deaf rally to protest the school board's decision to shutter their campus. (The hearing students, whose integration into the student body has caused some friction this season, also pitch in.)

Golden Globe Surprises and Snubs: Did Your Favorite Show Get Left Out?

Glee and Boardwalk Empire ruled the Golden Globes nominations, but let's be real — that was expected. Both are commercial hits and critical darlings — and working in the HBO drama's favor, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association loves new blood (see also: The Walking Dead and The Big C). But as usual, the HFPA threw us a few curveballs — some very sweet surprises and some egregious omissions.

Mega Buzz: Modern Family's Halloween, Hawaii Five-0's Ex and The Event

Every week, senior editors Mickey O'Connor and Adam Bryant satisfy your need for TV scoop. Please send all questions to mega_scoop@tvguide.com.

I love Halloween episodes! Tell me about Modern Family's. — Denis
MICKEY:
It'll focus on a horror of another sort: Gloria's accent! "She tries to fix her accent, but of course that doesn't happen," Sofia Vergara tells us. Ariel Winter, who plays Gloria's brainy step-granddaughter Alex, adds: "Gloria takes on some new weird way of speaking." Since "Ay, Manny!" is already my favorite non sequitur exclamation, I can't wait to see what rich verbal stylings Mrs. Delgado-Pritchett will serve up next.

Can you give me some scoop about Danno on Hawaii Five-0? — Nikki

The Event Episode Recap: "A Matter of Life and Death"

On Monday's episode of The Event, Sean and Collier learned more about Vicky's complicated identity. Leila escaped, but she's not safe yet. The White House's interrogation of Sophia was made more urgent when a biological threat to the confused, agitated — and recently reanimated — passengers of Avian 514 surfaced. It also became clear that Carter and Vicky have a boss, who is quite possibly played by Hal Holbrook. Menacing!
