EW.com's 4th Annual Season Finale Awards: Vote now!


Yes, there are a few season finales to go, but with the rush of surprise twists, cliffhangers, and exits behind us, it’s now time for EW.com’s fourth annual reader-voted Season Finale Awards.

Merle Dixon returns... for a joke on 'Conan' -- VIDEO

The Walking Dead’s Merle Dixon (Michael Rooker) and Carol Peletier (Melissa McBride) took refuge from walkers in the Conan audience last night. However, things got violent pretty fast. Let’s just say Merle is not too fond of Andy Richter’s comedic timing. The audience loved the whole bit and Rooker really went for it. He even grabbed a woman out of the audience and shouted, ”I finally got me some action,” as he ran out of the theater.

'The Walking Dead' season finale: Talk about it here! (SPOILERS)

[UPDATE: My full season finale recap is now live!] My Walking Dead stumbled into its third season finale covered in blood and gore, after fifteen episodes that featured a steadily-building main-character body count. It was all building towards the ultimate showdown between the ragtag gang led by Rick Grimes and the kindly citizens of Woodbury led by the homicidal Governor. Expectations for a cosmically bloody final act were high. And sure enough — SPOILERS AHEAD READ FULL STORY

What are your favorite show-reviving episodes?

Even the best TV shows go wrong. A misconceived plotline winds up bogging down a whole season. (Wait, Landry killed somebody?) A new character fails to gel with the rest of the cast. (See: Every new desperate housewife not played by Dana Delany.) The writers just start repeating the same story beats — oh look, Marissa’s falling in love with the wrong guy again! — or, even worse, they conjure up a potentially exciting twist that pushes the show too far outside of its comfort zone. (See: Abu Nazir, in the tunnels, acting less like a terrorist and more like a horror movie monster.) Most of the best shows of the last two decades have been good because they’re willing to make bold moves — and sometimes, those bold moves backfire. READ FULL STORY

'The Walking Dead': What just happened? (SPOILERS)

[UPDATE: My full Walking Dead recap is now live.] We all knew that the penultimate episode of The Walking Dead‘s third season was probably going to ratchet up the tension, since the back half of this season has been building up to the war between the Governor and Rick. Also, it’s been weeks since anybody died on this show. Well, tonight’s episode definitely ratcheted up the tension, because [SPOILER ALERT] READ FULL STORY

'The Walking Dead: Assault': iOS game lowers price starting Sunday


This Sunday, The Walking Dead returns to AMC for eight more episodes of zombie-killing mayhem. If you’re feeling the urge to explore further afield in the zombie post-apocalypse, then you’re in luck: starting this Sunday, the iOS game The Walking Dead: Assault will drop in price to $.99, meaning that you can now make your way through the undead-populated South for less than a dollar. The game, available for the iPad, iPhone, and iPad Touch, lets you play as various characters from the comic book series, including Rick, Carl, Glenn, Dale, and Michonne, who fight through undead hordes in parallel to the comic-book timeline. The price drop is just for a limited time. But, as we should all realize by now, life is just for a limited time. Unless you have a katana.

Check out 'The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct' gameplay trailer -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Given the monster success of AMC’s The Walking Dead, it’s surprising the gore-soaked series hasn’t yet spawned a proper survival-action videogame. Sure, Robert Kirkman’s flesh-eating franchise has inspired strategy and social games, as well as Telltale Game’s absorbing character-driven point-and-click adventure, but none of these entries have allowed first-person shooter fans to waste walkers from behind the iron sites of a hand-cannon.

This glaring oversight will be remedied next month when Activision unleashes The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct. Serving as a prequel to the TV series, Survival Instinct stars fan-favorite backwoods brothers Daryl and Merle Dixon (voiced in-game by Norman Reedus and Michael Rooker, respectively.) While players will drop walking corpses—and cranky one-liners—from behind Daryl’s crossbow, they’ll  also be joined throughout the adventure by his psycho sibling. When not piling undead creeps like cord wood, players will need to scavenge supplies, seek shelter, and generally do whatever it takes to survive. The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct won’t begin chilling spines and taxing trigger fingers for another few weeks, but you can get an exclusive look at the title’s first gameplay trailer right here.
