Nicole Munoz, Linda Hamilton and Justin Rain
Come with me if you want to live! Linda Hamilton emerged from 1984's The Terminator as one of the great heroines of science fiction — now she's threatening to do some terminating of her own. On Thursday's two-hour season finale of the futuristic Western Defiance, Hamilton's crazed character, Pilar McCawley, will kidnap her pregnant daughter at gunpoint and attempt to take her far away.
When Defiance returns for Season 2 (Thursday at 8/7c, Syfy), the town has been drastically transformed — and not for the better. In the nine months that've passed since the catastrophic mayoral election, the Earth Republic's reign over Defiance is in full swing. "It's an occupation," Julie Benz told reporters at New York Comic Con. "Everyone has lost their role in town and...

Although Defiance doesn't return until next summer, producer-director Michael Nankin and stars Grant Bowler, Julie Benz, Jaime Murray and Stephanie Leonidas stopped by New York Comic Con Sunday to tease what's to come.

After eight seasons, over 100 kills and more blood than we can imagine, Dexter will sign off for good on Sunday.
From the beginning, Dexter Morgan (Michael C. Hall) was a serial killer incapable of having emotions or a true human connection. But over the course of eight seasons, he's faced love, loss, heartache and even friendship with his foul-mouthed sister Deb (Jennifer Carpenter), proving that he may have the capacity for feelings. Will that be Dexter's downfall in the series finale? We'll find out Sunday (9/8c, Showtime). Before then, however, Hall and Carpenter look back at eight seasons of kills and thrills...
Last week's penultimate episode of Defiance was so jam-packed with action, it could have served as a season finale all on its own. So how do you feel when we say the real season finale is even more intense? Overwhelmed? Excited? Nervous for the lives of all your favorite characters?
How about all of the above?
Here to ease your nerves — and help mentally prepare you — are eight spoilers for Defiance's first season finale (Monday at 9/8c, Syfy).
Michael C Hall
After eight emotional, death-filled seasons, Dexter will sign-off for good — but the question remains whether the series' titular character will do the same.
Dexter final season scoop: Does Dexter have to die?
Ever since the show's inception, viewers had wondered how long Dexter Morgan (Michael C. Hall) could get away with being a serial killer. But, over time, those same fans also began to root for the blood-spatter analyst. They'd hold their breath when Sgt. Doakes (Erik King) got close to discovering the truth and mourned the loss of Rita (Julie Benz) because Dexter had actually — and surprisingly, for a sociopath — come to care for her. In short, viewers changed their entire perception on this particular serial killer because he was our anti-hero.

"Here's the story
Of two lovely ladies ..."
Doesn't take long before ABC Family's The Fosters dispels one of its two moms' worries that if they keep adding kids to their already crowded household, "It's going to be like The Brady Bunch around here." Well, maybe if Carol had married Alice and Alice was an African-American private-school vice principal and Carol was a cop and the kids were a blended multi-racial rainbow of diversity. Earnest but rarely saccharine, this promising new family drama (Monday, 9/8c) — to be paired in future weeks with the channel's best series, Switched at Birth — establishes its edgier tone by introducing its main character, the abused but prideful Callie (Maia Mitchell), as she gets roughed up on her way out of juvy and into the welcoming custody of Lena (Sherri Saum), who hasn't yet told her partner-the-cop Stef (Teri Polo) about the new addition.

Dexter is in trooooouble!
When Dexter returns for its seventh — and penultimate — season, both viewers and their favorite serial-killing blood spatter analyst will discover just what happens when his secret is revealed.
The last we saw of Dexter (Michael C. Hall), he had finally delivered his own biblical form of vengeance upon Travis (Colin Hanks), who had left Miami in fear over where the Doomsday Killer would strike next. He had also kidnapped Dexter's son Harrison, which finally hit a nerve with the often emotionless Dexter, who then stuck it to Travis — literally — in the closing moments of the finale. Unfortunately, Dexter wasn't alone in that church, with Deb (Jennifer Carpenter) planning to profess her love to her brother before walking in on him driving a knife into Travis.
