"The Walking Dead" returns to the Prison in the upcoming episode "This Sorrowful Life" after focusing on the drama at Woodbury in "Prey," and new promos for the episode show that it will focus on Merle, Merle, Merle. Despite his many apologies to those he wronged in the Prison crew, the one-handed Dixon brother is still walking on thin ice.
In addition to the promo, which can be watched after the jump (and are obviously full of spoilers for those of you not caught up on the intense season), two new clips from "This Sorrowful Life" have also been released. Between the three looks into next week's "The Walking Dead" episode, it becomes clear that Merle isn't the only one who should be watching his back. Michonne could be in trouble as well as Rick seems pretty convinced that giving her up to the Governor will make all of his problems go away.

After last week's glacially-paced confab between Rick and the Governor, "The Walking Dead" returned to more action-packed territory in "Prey": an episode that featured secret sabotage, growing suspicions, deadly games of cat-and-mouse, and classic moments of zombie dismemberment that'll fill your gore-loving little heart with joy. Ready to find out what went down? Let's go!

Get those DVRs ready because a battle of epic proportions will be fought on March 31st. That Sunday night marks the season finale of "The Walking Dead" airing directly opposite the season premiere of "Game of Thrones," in a truly unprecedented aligning of overwhelmingly popular television shows. Someone check what the stars are doing on that Sunday night, because fate seems to be involved... or probably just television executives. "The Walking Dead" has delivered ratings gold for AMC all season long, and HBO's fantasy drama could prove to be its stiffest competition yet. There's an overview over at MTV Geek that can get you caught up on both shows before their upcoming Sunday showdown.

Starling City citizens beware. It looks like the purse-snatching heartthrob, Roy Harper, is here to stay. Making his debut in episode 15 of this season, Roy Harper (as played by Colton Haynes) is already slated to make an appearance in several other upcoming episodes of "Arrow." Plus, with the Hollywood Reporter breaking the news of Colton Haynes signing on as a series regular, it would appear as though we'll be seeing a lot more of Mr. Harper next season.
So far all we've really learned about Roy is that he lives on the awful side of town and that he may or may not make a living as a small time criminal in order to support his Vertigo-addicted mother. Oh, and he totally has the hots for Thea Queen (Oliver Queen's younger sister). But as any Green Arrow fan knows, there's way more to this down-and-out troublemaker than initially meets the eye. That being said, here are five things that we could see from Roy Harper in "Arrow's" second season.
In the comic books, Roy Harper is arguably one of Oliver Queen's best and most well-known sidekicks. Going by the nickname Speedy, due to him being faster than Oliver Queen himself, Roy Harper would later go on to become the infamous Arsenal and later the Red Arrow. On "Arrow," Thea calls Roy "Speedy" after he steals her purse. However, Thea's nickname is also Speedy, which leaves "Arrow" fans utterly in the dark as to who will be joining forces with the hooded vigilante.

Good news, Speedy fans! "Arrow's" new resident troublemaker Roy Harper will be back full-time starting in season two. The Hollywood Reporter has announced that Colton Haynes has been bumped up to a series regular following his recent debut, joining Oliver Queen and the rest of the Starling City residents in their ongoing adventures. Haynes debuted as Harper in the episode "Dodger," wherein he stole Arrow's sister Thea's purse... and possibly her heart. See, he's a troublemaker! Haynes will reprise his role a few more times before the freshman CW drama finishes its successful first season.
What did you think of the first meeting between Rick and the Governor, "Walking Dead" heads? If you're anything like series lead Andrew Lincoln, you were both surprised and moved by the long-awaited non-violent confrontation between these very-violent men.
"It turned into something really interesting," the actor told MTV News about this week's episode. "There were more mind games, two men sizing each other up, and trying to come to some semblance of an agreement. It was fun. We didn't really talk so much when we were working together because of the nature of the atmosphere in the room, but it was great to get these two men in the same room, to see how they respond to each other."
It's no secret that Agent Phil Coulson will fight another day in Marvel and ABC's planned "S.H.I.E.L.D." television series. What's less clear is how Coulson will still be around to fight, considering his on-screen demise in "Marvel's The Avengers."
The exact nature of Coulson's revival remains unknown, but Joss Whedon himself confirmed the agent's survival during an appearance at SXSW for "Much Ado About Nothing."

With one major payoff promised on this week's "The Walking Dead," anticipation for last night's episode was running high; after all, we know from a week's worth of teasers that this will be the crucial one in which Rick and the Governor finally meet face-to-face. But when? When?!
In case you didn't hear already, "Walking Dead" mastermind Robert Kirkman appeared on "Conan," chatting with the talk show host about life in the zombie apocalypse. Among the topics covered: the various "Walking Dead" products that Kirkman has turned down in his time (perfume? really?), some of Conan's biggest nitpicks with the series, and the reveal of a brand-new clip from this Sunday's coming episode, "Arrow on the Doorpost."
Watch the full interview in three parts below:
"The Walking Dead" airs a new episode on Sunday night, but you can get some fresh zombie goodness as soon as tonight.
Robert Kirkman, author of the "Walking Dead" comics and executive producer of the AMC television series, will appear on tonight's episode of "Conan." He'll appear on the same episode as "Oz the Great and Powerful" star James Franco. Will Kirkman and Franco forge a friendship that leads to a future zombie cameo from the "Oz" actor? One never knows — but Franco has certainly done weirder things!
