Lots of secrets were spilled on Sunday's episode of The Walking Dead.
First, via flashbacks, viewers learned exactly why hardened soldier Abraham (Michael Cudlitz) came to be so rigid and driven. After his wife and kids witnessed first-hand just how deft a killing machine Abraham...
After years of will-they-won't-they stalling, numerous near-death experiences and one failed trip down the aisle, the detective duo at the center of ABC's Castle is finally getting married.
"Yes, yes it is going to happen," executive producer David Amann tells TVGuide.com with a laugh. Some fans may need that reassurance considering the Season 6 finale....
Alfonso Ribeiro has occasionally mentioned his groin injury on Dancing with the Stars, often in a joking context with co-host Erin Andrews, but one doesn't get the sense of just how serious the condition is until speaking with Ribeiro one-on-one.
"It's been really grueling for me, because it's constantly doing treatment on my body," Ribeiro tells TVGuide.com. "There's never enough hours in the day, because I've got to literally dance all day and then try to do treatment in between. So, I'll either do treatment in the morning or I do it in the evening. I had someone at my house last night show up at 9 p.m., working on me 'til10:30 p.m., working on my body, trying to help make it last. It's really been very frustrating."

HBO's Getting On is the best show on TV you're not watching.
Adapted from the British series of the same name by Big Love co-creators Mark V. Olsen and Will Scheffer, the comedy stars Laurie Metcalf(Roseanne), Alex Borstein (MadTV, Family Guy) and Niecy Nash (Reno 911) as members of the medical staff at a geriatric extended care ward of fictitious Southern California hospital — a place where senior citizens go to die and the people who work there aren't sure what they're living for.

Sure, that doesn't sound like a recipe for gut-busting laughter, which may be why HBO debuted the six-episode first season at the end of 2013 with little to no fanfare. "They didn't tell anyone that it was on!" Borstein tells TVGuide.com....

Given the anticipatory hype that preceded the 2012 debut of HBO's The Newsroom, it would have been hard to predict that the Aaron Sorkindrama would end the way it is — with a truncated third and final season that begins Sunday.
After two up-and-down years — the first season was met with decidedly harsh reviews, while the second was received more warmly despite some persisting flaws —and a very tidy Season 2 finale, it seemed Sorkin might be ready to just move on to something else. But after negotiating with HBO and bringing The Office's Paul Lieberstein on board, Sorkin & Co. decided they weren't quite finished...

On Sons of Anarchy, you expect a high body count. And because it's the show's final season, we always feared that some of the core club members might not ride their motorcycles off into the sunset.
On Tuesday's episode, that fear became a sad reality....

Winter is coming... Kitty Winter that is.
When Elementary returns for its third season on Thursday (10/9c, CBS), Joan Watson (Lucy Liu) will give Sherlock Holmes (Jonny Lee Miller) a rather chilly reception when he returns to New York. After all, he abruptly ended their crime-solving partnership when he hared off to England to work for MI6. Even worse, he replaced her with a newer, younger model: Kitty Winter (Ophelia Lovibond), Sherlock's new protégé.

After five beautifully crafted seasons, the lights finally went out on HBO's Boardwalk Empire Sunday night. And as promised by creator and executive producer Terence Winter, who worked with the team that crafted the maddening and still-debated ending of The Sopranos, there was nothing ambiguous about it.
The show arguably reached its emotional climax in the penultimate episode, when Nucky Thompson (Steve Buscemi) agreed to give up his Atlantic City empire to New York rival Charlie Luciano (Vincent Piazza) in order to save his nephew Willie. As such, the finale became a flashback-heavy exploration of Nucky's soul as he tied up loose ends with his brother Eli (Shea Whigam) and made plans to move to New York and live quietly, thanks to the cool $2 million he made manipulating the stock market with his former wife Margaret (Kelly Macdonald).

It's not easy being Grimm.
When Grimm returns for its fourth season on Friday (9/8c, NBC), Det. Nick Burkhardt (David Giuntoli) will have to wrestle with being a Grimm who's lost his powers thanks to a wicked Hexenbiest spell. But does that mean he's still a Grimm? "Season 2 is a lot about identity," co-creator David Greenwalt tells TVGuide.com. "Not 'Who am I?' so much as 'Who should I be?'"
