There's been a lot of trust issues on "Arrow" so far, but never before have they been made so prominent. Last night's episode, "Betrayal," puts a spotlight on all of the liars in Starling City; whether it's Oliver Queen, who is lying to his family and friends about his alter ego, or Detective Lance, who is lying to his daughter about putting a tracer on the vigilante's phone, there just doesn't seem to be an honest person in the entire town.
Well, besides Tommy that is.
There's less than a week left until "The Walking Dead" returns on AMC, and though the fates of the residents of Woodbury and the Prison are uncertain, we now know at least one thing for fact: Merle lives long enough to bash a zombie's face in.
Entertainment Weekly has debuted three new images from the upcoming midseason premiere, and it looks like Merle survives his fight with Daryl long enough to face off against some walkers. That's good for us, because we want to see what adventures the two brothers get up to now that they've been reunited after so long.
It's far too early to see too much of "S.H.I.E.L.D." ... but it's never too early when you're Agent M.
Marvel.com's Ryan Penagos, better known by his Twitter handle @AgentM, was on the set of "S.H.I.E.L.D." earlier in the year, chatting with the cast and crew responsible for bringing the Marvel Cinematic Universe to the small-screen. Penagos has been posting video blogs from his time on the set, and the latest entry offers a very quick look at the set itself.

Tyreese isn't the only major new addition to the "Walking Dead" TV universe. According to showrunner Glen Mazzara, there's at least one more big-name character from Robert Kirkman's comics premiering in the second half of season three.
"Our comic book fans will still be excited and delighted to see how the story unfolds and how we tell the story. We do have a lot of new surprising material. There’s still a major character to appear in the back half, which is very exciting," the producer told EW in a new interview. But according to Mazzara, we won't be seeing too many other new characters introduced in the remainder of season three.
Breaking into new groups is always awkward. You never know if an innocent, off-handed comment is going to offend someone, or if there's a sensitive issue you should avoid in conversation.
Needless to say, the prison-survivors of "The Walking Dead" have a lot of sensitive issues to avoid.
A brand new clip from next Sunday's midseason premiere of "Walking Dead" has come online, and it's 100% full of awkwardness. Prepare to feel incredibly uncomfortable in the video below.
John Layman, writer and co-creator of Image Comics' incredible "Chew," tweeted out some disappointing news for fans of the food-centric comic book series: the planned Showtime adaptation won't be going forward after all.
The man's words speak for themselves:
Killing zombies is a dirty job, but somebody's gotta do it — and that somebody is none other than Daryl Dixon.
"Walking Dead" star Norman Reedus graced the Super Bowl with his brooding presence in a commercial for Time Warner that sees the flesh-eating menace become a domestic nightmare. Good thing for home-owners and cable-watchers everywhere that Daryl's around to keep you safe.

The Governor and Rick will come face-to-face in the second half of "The Walking Dead" season three. This is something we've already seen teased. But according to star David Morrissey, the epic showdown isn't going to happen the way fans might expect.
"What I’ve liked about the season so far is that it’s full of surprises,” Morrissey told SFX magazine. "Obviously the stars might be aligned for Rick and the Governor to have some sort of meeting, but maybe the show will shoot that in a very surprising way. I think it’s not going to give you what you want in the way that you want it, and I think that’s what I’ve enjoyed in the second half of the season."
If you liked the fact that "Fringe" actor Seth Gabel starred in the most recent episode of "Arrow," "Vertigo," then you're going to love who's stopping by in next week's episode, "Betrayal."
David Anders, best known for his work on shows like "Alias," "Heroes" and "Once Upon a Time," will be playing the villain Cyrus Vanch, and it looks like he will be Oliver Queen's most dangerous enemy yet. The CW has released a new extended promo for "Betrayal" that gives fans a taste of Vanch a week early. Based on what we've seen, it seems like we all should be very happy to have Anders back on the small screen.

Picking up exactly where last week's episode of "Arrow" left off, "Vertigo" opens with a furious and hooded Oliver Queen chasing a low level drug thug through an alleyway. Pinning him to a nearby ledge with an arrow stuck in his wrist, the thug tells Oliver of a maniacal drug lord known only as the Count. He's the one that's been supplying Starling City with the deadly Vertigo drug. He's the one responsible for Thea's arrest.
The next day, the Queens and Laurel show up in support of the accused: Thea Queen. But despite the best efforts of the best lawyer in town, the judge moves the case to trial and deems Thea the new poster child for drug abuse in Starling City. With nowhere left to turn, Oliver pays a visit to the Starling City Police Department and bumps into an old friend, Detective McKenna Hall.
