The Walking Dead shook things up again on Sunday's Season 3 finale by killing off another main character — and proving once and for all that the AMC series is unafraid to ax anyone, no matter what happened in the comics.
In this instance, it was Andrea (Laurie Holden), who became a polarizing character in the third season when she began literally sleeping with the enemy in the form of The Governor (David Morrisey) the charismatic leader of the supposedly idyllic town of Woodbury. (Of course, Andrea learned the hard way that The Governor is actually a sadist who rules the town with an iron fist.) Still, killing off one of the few original characters who is still alive in the comics is sure to get Dead fans talking until the series returns in October. To find out why the writers decided to kill off Andrea, TVGuide.com turned to executive producer Robert Kirkman, who also dishes on what's in store for Season 4...

The Walking Dead took a shocking turn in Sunday's Season 3 finale, killing off a character who is still alive in the comics more than 100 issues in. Sure, the show has taken liberties with character deaths before, but this particular death is such a departure that one must question whether this will alienate fans of the comic books.
Again, spoiler warning.

TV Guide Magazine gathered together some of the most creative and successful minds in the TV business on March 30 for WonderCon's Fan Favorite Showrunners panel. Celebrating the magazine's 60th anniversary and moderated by LA bureau chief Michael Schneider, the all-star lineup included Greg Plageman (Person of Interest), Jeff Davis (Teen Wolf), Remi Aubuchon (Falling Skies), Glen Mazzara (The Walking Dead), Steven Molaro (The Big Bang Theory) and Julie Plec (The Vampire Diaries).
You'd think Easter weekend might be a quiet time for TV. You'd be wrong. Easter Sunday turns out to be one of the most overstuffed nights since February's sweeps-stakes, capped by a face-off between the season finale of cable's hottest horror show and the premiere of pay cable's most deluxe epic fantasy.
AMC did not make the third-season finish of The Walking Dead (Sunday, 9/8c) available for preview, but we're already fearing the worst as the climactic showdown approaches between the Governor's troops and TV's most heroic prison gang, while failed peacekeeper Andrea swelters in the torture dungeon back in Woodbury. It's nothing new to wonder who'll live or die in this bleak post-apocalypse. But until this riveting and wrenching season, we were mostly worried about the zombie "walkers," who've taken a back seat lately to the human monsters battling for power and revenge.

Any more teasers about the Bones finale? I'm still hoping for a proposal after Monday's visit to the diamond shop! — Bridget
ADAM: While last year's finale cast Brennan under suspicion, this season-ender may have some raising eyebrows about Booth. "There is a connection to Booth's past," executive producer Stephen Nathan says about the case in the finale. "We find out about some of his work at the FBI that we didn't know about. And it appears as if the victims have a close connection to Booth." So is Booth dirty or is this the work of the returning Pelant? Time will tell. As to the to the more bling-y part of your question: "The notion of marriage is again brought up in the finale," Nathan teases. "If you thought the pot was stirred [this week], the pot... overflows and messes up the kitchen floor in the season finale." Sounds like marriage to me!

NATALIE: One unlucky bastard...
Will Rick and the prison gang survive The Governor's onslaught on The Walking Dead?
That question will hopefully be answered in the show's Season 3 finale (Sunday at 9/8c, AMC). But perhaps the real question Dead fans should be asking is whether Rick (Andrew Lincoln) & Co. will still be at the prison when The Governor (David Morrisey) and his ruthless army arrive. Based on one of the exclusive photos below, it seems like the group is gearing up to vacate the prison rather than defend it.

This is the night NBC has been waiting for all year. A rough 2013 it has been, for sure, with prime time in freefall and even institutions like the Today and Tonight shows embattled by negative PR. You might begin to think Do No Harm isn't just a bad memory, but a motto the Peacock network somehow just can't seem to live up to.
If the tide is ever to start turning, it will be on Mondays, with the return of the game-changing The Voice (8/7c) and its irresistible, instantly iconic "Blind Audition" episodes. New to the hot seats: Shakira and Usher, filling in this cycle for Cee Lo Green and Christina Aguilera, with NBC hoping it doesn't matter who's sitting in those revolving chairs. The show's the thing, and this has always been the best part of The Voice.
