It's raining zombies, quite literally, by the end of the first hour of The Walking Dead's fourth harrowing season (Sunday, 9/8c, AMC). And when it rains, it pours blood. Just how fans like it.
But it's in the pauses between the gruesome action, those eerie and unsettling silences, when we're reminded there's no rest for the living in a treacherous world where swarming walkers are constantly pressing against the prison-shelter gates, insatiable and relentless. In these quieter moments, Dead reinforces its claim as TV's greatest horror drama by making us care so desperately about the characters' humanity.
Hawaii Five-0 is beefing up Chin Ho's (Daniel Dae Kim) presence in Season 4. One upcoming episode will flash back to his first meeting with his late wife, the circumstances surrounding the loss of his badge and his time under the mentorship of McGarrett's father, John. But first, the season kicks off with a pair of episodes that welcome two of Kim's former Lost costars.
Henry Ian Cusick (the time-jumping Desmond) guest stars in the Sept. 27 premiere as the villainous Ernesto, who holds the team hostage. "He's tied in to some baddies we introduced last season," says exec producer Peter Lenkov.

Ever since the curse was broken, it's been a hot topic up for discussion: When will the residents of Storybrooke find a way to return to fairy tale land?
As we saw earlier this season on Once Upon a Time, fairy tale land is no longer as magical as it once was. Now a desolate land overrun by ogres, it isn't really much of a home for Storybrooke townsfolk to go back to. Still, it won't stop them from trying — especially when they face a giant problem in this Sunday's episode, airing 8/7c on ABC.
Lightning Round 5: Once Upon a Time bosses answer your burning questions
Anton the giant (Jorge Garcia) returns this week, ready to wreak havoc after a case of mistaken identity sets him hellbent on destroying David (Josh Dallas). But it's David who just may be the key to getting our favorite fairy tale characters home. How's that, you ask? TVGuide.com turned to Dallas to find out:
Once upon a time, back when young Carl Grimes was still more or less a little boy, his papa Rick laid down the facts of life and death as it applies to the zombie-infested world they now occupy. "No more kid stuff," Rick told the boy, giving him the gun Carl would later use in a way no could have imagined. "People are gonna die. I'm gonna die. [Your] Mom. There's no way you can ever be ready for it."
We've seen Once Upon a Time travel to many lands, both magical and real world, but this Sunday the ABC fairy tale drama will venture somewhere it's never gone before: Into Emma's past!
This week's Once will travel back to when Emma (Jennifer Morrison) was vulnerable and wide-eyed, attempting to make it on her own as an adult for the first time. "You really get to see the difference of where she was at 10 years ago as opposed to now," Morrison tells TVGuide.com, explaining that at 18, though damaged, Emma still had hope that life could change after being raised in the foster care system. "By the time we meet her on her 28th birthday in the pilot of Once, she...

Alcatraz may have only lasted 13 episodes, but it'll live on forever in HD. Warner Bros. is releasing the series from cancellation jail and onto DVD and Blu-ray shelves Tuesday, and TV Guide Magazine has an exclusive first look at one of the features.
The Fox show followed present-day San Francisco copper Rebecca Madsen (Sarah Jones), her sidekick "Doc" Soto (Lost's Jorge Garcia), and FBI bossman Emerson Hauser (Sam Neill) as they tried to corral the various prisoners who mysteriously vanished at Alcatraz's closure in 1963 and have just as mysteriously turned up in 2012.
Alcatraz: The Complete Series includes the standard gag reel and deleted scenes, as well as a special behind-the-scenes look at what made this one-season wonder tick. The clip below shows the lengths the crew took to get the Vancouver set looking so close to the real Alcatraz, the producers couldn't tell the difference.
Fee-fi-fo-fum. On Nov. 4, ABC's Once Upon a Time gets another visit from a Lost alum, and this one's a biggie. Or, more specifically, "a Giant, like six times a normal person," says Jorge Garcia.
