At times, you might mistake Lifetime's enjoyably earnest Biblical epic The Red Tent (Sunday-Monday, 9/8c) for an Old Testament version of Call the Midwife. Adapted from Anita Diamant's novel, this saga of revisionist her-story focuses on willful Dinah (The White Queen's Rebecca Ferguson), the only daughter of Jacob (Game of Thrones' Iain Glen) — he of the many sons, including the sartorially infamous Joseph.

I'm still in shock from The Walking Dead finale! What's coming up next? —Allen
Although executive producer Scott M. Gimple hinted that Rick's increasingly brutal worldview might cause some in his group to question his leadership, don't look for Daryl to be one of them — especially after Beth's death. "Daryl has always got his back," Norman Reedus tells us. "Daryl would have run over the cop with a car too — he just would have run right through him. I don't think it meant Rick was more crazy... than anyone else." But Reedus does allow for the possibility that Daryl won't always feel that way. "I think there's humanity left in Rick," Reedus says. "But Daryl always has Rick in his peripheral vision. Always."

Robin Tunney, Simon Baker
As The Mentalist prepares to kick off its seventh and final season Sunday, members of the cast and crew say they feel like they have a new show on their hands. First, there's no will-they-or-won't-they tension between Patrick Jane (Simon Baker) and Teresa Lisbon (Robin Tunney) to grapple with, after that steamy kiss in the Season 6 finale. And, for the first time in the show's history, the Red John storyline will not be lurking in the background.
"Essentially this season is about what happens when life turns out the way you'd hoped it would, when you do have a happy ending," creator Bruno Heller told reporters on a conference call last week. "What happens after that? Jane and Lisbon have been engaged in this epic journey for six years. ... How do you create a different kind of life? And how do you create a different relationship out of a relationship that was borne in the kind of trauma that theirs was? ... It's the last hurrah for the show."

Son of Batman
Batman turns 75 this year and he's celebrating by becoming a father. The upcoming animated movie Son of Batman introduces Damian, the child Bruce Wayne never knew he had. The story is based on a 2006 comic-book arc written by Grant Morrison in which Batman learns that he has a violent, unruly pre-teen son, secretly raised by the terrorist group the League of Assassins....
Morena Baccarin, Morgan Saylor
Homeland original cast members Morena Baccarin and Morgan Saylor will not return as regulars in Season 4, TVLine reports.
Saylor's character Dana has been scrutinized since the series' launch, but became a focal point of fan contention this season when given a more prominent role. With Brody (Damien Lewis) absent for most of the beginning of Season 3, the focus shifted to Brody's family, specifically Dana's struggles in the wake of her father's alleged terrorist attack.

Picking up a couple months after "America's second 9/11" — a car bomb outside a memorial service for the vice president that pretty much decimated the entire CIA — Carrie (Claire Danes), Saul (Mandy Patinkin) & Co. are in rebuilding mode. "Everything that happens in Season 3 grows out of the attack on the CIA," executive producer Alex Gansa tells TVGuide.com...
All work and no foreplay makes Dr. William Masters anything but a dull boy.
With the assistance of a free-thinking single mother named Virginia Johnson, this renowned fertility specialist and pioneer in the study of sexual physiology challenges the repressive social mores of the late '50s, when Peyton Place is considered risqué and most people (according to Masters) "sit hunched in the dark like prudish cavemen filled with shame and guilt" when it came to thinking about sex.
Where's Brody? That's classified information...for now. Homeland's POW-turned-suspected bomber was last seen fleeing to Canada — with the help of agent Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes) — after the catastrophic attack on the CIA's headquarters in Langley, Virginia. The case against him is solid: Bomb parts were found in his wrecked car, and Al Qaeda leaked a suicide video he had made before a previous, failed mission.<
