We always knew that when Rick Grimes and the Governor finally met the result would be war. But who could have imagined it would be a war of words?

'Walking Dead' exec producer Robert Kirkman talks about tonight's show and the long-awaited return of Morgan
Tonight’s episode of AMC‘s undead saga the Walking Dead offered more evidence that reunions between acquaintances in the zombie apocalypse are rarely happy events. In real life, such occasions are all about “You look well” and “My son got into college.” But the long-awaited reunion of Andrew Lincoln’s Rick and Lennie James’ Morgan was more “You look insane” and “My son got turned into a zombie by his undead mom, who I then killed.”
What’s a “Mitchie”? Apparently, that’s what fans of Pretty Little Liars star Shay Mitchell are called, a fact we discovered at our cover shoot for the ABC Family teen drama. EW posed the show’s four stars with several questions, including: “What has been your craziest fan encounter?” Mitchell’s three co-stars — Lucy Hale, Ashley Benson, and Troian Bellisario — almost immediately turned to her. “People get your face tattooed on them!” exclaimed Hale, before the foursome went on to explain what the “Mitchies” are.
Mitchell herself offered this: “There’s no face! But I’ve met a few fans from across the world who’ve had my name tattooed on them.” Then the whole Q&A basically devolves into a further lovefest for Mitchell and her insane fans.

You know how sometimes you lose track of a friend? And they start shacking up with a deranged post-apocalyptic dictator who tortures a couple of your other pals, and wants you dead, and dumps a van full of human flesh-hungry zombies on your doorstep? And then your friend comes round to visit and things get a little, well, aw-kward? Then you will have been unsurprised by the most recent episode of AMC’s undead show the Walking Dead.
The answer to that question is yes, if you consider the clip below. EW has snatched about a minute from Tuesday’s forthcoming hour of ABC Family’s soapy teen mystery Pretty Little Liars – EW’s cover subject this week — that finds Spencer (Troian Bellisario) forcefully warning Emily (Shay Mitchell) that she may be the next one to feel Mona and the “A” team’s wrath.
Holding an ominous funeral sash, Spencer — who has recently been getting it from Mona and the “A” team — points out that the only two letters in the words “deepest sympathy” that aren’t shiny are the E and the M. As in the first two letters of Emily. Remember: We saw one of the “A” minions laying the sash across flowers in the show-ending tag at the end of this week’s episode. “Mona is trying to tell us in her cryptic way,” Spencer warns, “that she’s targeting you next.” Emily brushes it off, but Spencer won’t give up. “She made it seem like something bad was going to happen to you tonight. Look, I’m gonna stay with you for the rest of the day. Do not ignore this!”
Should Emily ignore the supposed warning? Watch the clip and you decide. (And click here to buy this week’s PLL issue!)
Reece Shearsmith cast as Patrick Troughton in 'Doctor Who' origins movie 'An Adventure in Space and Time'
Reece Shearsmith has been cast as actor Patrick Troughton in the TV movie An Adventure in Space and Time, which details the creation of Doctor Who. Troughton was the second actor to play the Time Lord in the long-running time travel show, taking over the role from William Hartnell in 1966. As previously announced, Harry Potter actor David Bradley has been cast as Hartnell.
Writer Meredith Stiehm, 44, shares similarities with Homeland‘s Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes): both work in male-dominated places (Stiehm is the Showtime series’ sole female writer) and both have personal connections to bipolar disorder (Stiehm’s sister, like Carrie, suffers from the condition). Stiehm has penned some of the series most acclaimed and talked about episodes, including season one’s “The Weekend,” where Brody (Damian Lewis) and Carrie go to her cabin in the woods, and season two’s “New Car Smell,” in which Carrie finally arrests Brody.
“I didn’t come in until like episode 4,” says Stiehm. “[Howard Gordon and Alex Gansa] created the character and the show. Around episode 4, they realized that there were all male writers and they had a female lead so they wanted a female writer.” Adds Danes, ”She’s really incredible. Her voice is so distinctive and so honest and funny. She has a very wry sensibility that’s so in keeping with who Carrie is. But she also is very warm and feeling and all of that translates into all her work. I owe an enormous amount to Meredith.”

'Harry Potter' actor cast as William Hartnell in 'Doctor Who' movie 'An Adventure in Space and Time'

'Spartacus: War of the Damned' premiere: Will Gannicus be the next gladiator leader? -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO
The final season of Spartacus — slugged with the subtitle War of the Damned — doesn’t premiere until this Friday, Jan. 25, at 9 p.m. on Starz, but EW has a sneak peek of the first episode for you.
In the clip, we find Spartacus (Liam McIntyre) and Gannicus (Dustin Clare) having a meeting of the minds, but what’s really going down is that Spartacus is trying to convince Gannicus to take a leadership role in the gladiators’ fight against the ruling Romans. “A greater number, still, would follow you in battle,” Spartacus tells Gannicus, who seems extremely apprehensive at the proposition. Spartacus ends the clip by assuring Gannicus he isn’t leading the fight for vanity or deification: “Victory against the Romans is my only concern.” Click through to watch.
The third season of MTV2′s Guy Code premiered on Tuesday night to big numbers for the series and network — the episode was the highest rated and most watched original season premiere in the cable network’s history. In case you’re out of the loop: The reality-documentary mash-up show delves into everything surrounding the mythical special code that exists between bros, with input, quips, and jokes from pop culture entertainers, comics, sports folks, and other experts. (Like Best Week Ever but really dude-ed out.)
So what’s coming up on next week’s new installment? Gay stuff — and you know how EW likes that. Lucky for you, we have an exclusive clip from the coming Guy Code take on homosexuality when it comes to bros. As comedian Jordan Carlos says in the episode: “If you think about it…everybody’s a little bit gay.” True. Take a sneak peek at next week’s episode of Guy Code here:
Viewers first glimpsed the logo for History’s Vikings series — which is set to premiere early this year — in the exclusive trailer posted here on EW.com about a month ago. And there it is above, again, in all it’s glory. At second glance, it’s a rather complicated logo. What’s behind it? EW did a little investigating, and History spilled the details about what’s inside the design. Here’s what we learned.
