The first two episodes of The Walking Dead’s third season saw Rick Grimes and Co. infiltrate and make a prison their new home/fortress. But tonight’s episode will take a drastic turn as we are finally introduced to the big bad of season 3, The Governor. Not only will we finally meet the Governor, but we will get an up close and personal tour of the town he calls home: Woodbury, GA.

But you don’t have to wait until tonight to hear from the Governor, because the man who plays him, David Morrissey, is ready to talk to you right here and right now! Morrissey and exec-producer Gale Anne Hurd stopped by EW’s InsideTV Podcast studio to drop some intel on the character fans will soon love to hate. What makes the Governor tick? And how is he similar and different to the comic book version of the character? Not only that, but David will respond to Andrew Lincoln starting a war of words between the characters a few months back. Also, Gale will offer some insight into the Rick 2.0 we witnessed chopping off legs and killing inmates the past two weeks. It’s a must-listen for any Walking Dead fan. (The Walking Dead interview starts at 15:00.)

But before the zombies attack, we need to discuss a slightly sexier supernatural being: the vampire. Mandi Bierly joins me to talk all things Vampire Diaries, including Elena’s recent transformation and the arrival of mysterious vampire hunter Connor Jordan. We break down what’s happened so far, and Mandi offers teases as to what’s coming up next. It’s a conversation you’ll want to sink your teeth into. (Sorry, couldn’t resist.) READ FULL STORY

InsideTV Podcast: Are you digging Elena on 'The Vampire Diaries' as a bloodsucker?

The Vampire Diaries took a big gamble when they decided to have Elena begin the transformation from human to vampire. And the show took an even bigger risk when it decided to have Stefan and Bonnie’s attempts to save her from her fate fall short — meaning there is no turning back now. How do we feel about Elena now joining the ranks of the bloodsuckers? And where do both the character and the show go from here? TVD expert Mandi Bierly joins me on this week’s edition of the InsideTV Podcast to break down the ramifications of the big new twist and what it means for everyone in Mystic Falls. Not only that, but we also take a long hard look at the new vampire hunter in town, Connor Jordan. Whatever you do, don’t shake his hand! Just click on the audio player below to listen in.

But that’s not all, oh lovers of all things supernatural. We also have a revealing chat with the new big bad on The Walking Dead. The Governor is coming, and the man who plays him, David Morrissey, stopped by our studio along with Walking Dead exec-producer Gale Anne Hurd to drop some intel on both the man and his seemingly idyllic town of Woodbury (which we will see for the first time in this Sunday’s episode). Gale also talks about the big change in Rick this season, while David responds to some trash talk from Andrew Lincoln, who dissed and dismissed his on-screen opponent to us a few months ago. The battle is joined! READ FULL STORY

'Vampire Diaries': Damon threatens to leave town, Stefan wears an awesome leather jacket -- CLIP

Sad news: Damon didn’t get so drunk at Alaric’s grave in last week’s Vampire Diaries episode that he forgot his monologue about how he should be long gone by now because the Salvatores had agreed that whichever brother Elena didn’t choose would skip town. In the clip from Thursday’s episode below, we see that Damon intends to leave — as soon as he eats the new vampire hunter, Connor Jordan. Luckily, we know that won’t be easy to do.  READ FULL STORY

'Supernatural,' 'Scandal,' 'The Vampire Diaries,' 'CSI: NY': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room

Hi, y’all! Happy almost-Halloween.

In between gathering scoops, I’m in the process of deciding what I’ll be wearing for the big night. So far, I’ve narrowed my options down to: an Observer, the Human Being, or bored single person. I know where I’m leaning but feel free to weigh in if you have a chance.

Meanwhile, make sure you’re emailing all your spoiler question to spoilerroom@ew.com or sending them via Twitter (@EWSandraG). Also, I’m taking other random TV questions via Vyou. I know, that’s a lot of me. Let’s move on:

‘SUPERNATURAL’: ‘THINGS QUICKLY FALL APART’
If you, like me, are still haunted by the image of Castiel calling out to Dean in Purgatory, sit back. I have some interesting intel for you.

While talking to Misha Collins about his charitable scavenger hunt (more about that here), he also confirmed a hunch we’d had about the last time Dean saw Cas. It was, in fact, while Dean was exiting Purgatory. But there’s much more to it than that. “That very moment is a pivotal moment. I think Dean is confused about what happened at that moment and won’t actually find out what happened then until episode 7,” he reveals. “It’s going to take a while to see that moment play out.” Suffice to say the truth hurts — especially on this show.

But when Cas does return topside, look for him to be “reinvigorated with a sense of purpose,” says Collins. “He essentially feels like he has to do good in order to right the wrongs of his past. So he starts to collaborate with Sam and Dean for that reason — so that he can continue to try to make things right. He’s no longer paying penance, really, because it’s no longer an act of suffering for him. But he’s doing his best to right the wrongs of his past.” Doing so won’t be as easy as he hopes, however. “He’s doing that in ways that help Sam and Dean and then, ultimately, it might also make life — as per usual with the Supernatural universe — complicated for Sam and Dean. At first, it seems like everything is hunky dory. But things quickly fall apart.”

'Vampire Diaries:' Nina Dobrev says Elena is 'stuck in the middle' of Stefan and Damon -- VIDEO

On tonight’s episode of The Vampire Diaries, both Stefan and Damon try to help Elena adjust to life as a vampire. (Of course, they have very different methods).

When we caught up with Nina Dobrev on the set of the series recently, she told us that though Elena chose Stefan in the season three finale, her recent transition will affect how she feels about both brothers.

“She’s confused and changing and having different cravings and having different urges,” says Dobrev. “I feel like she’s kind of gone back to being stuck in the middle between the two boys.”

Watch the video below to get Dobrev’s take on the triangle:

Ratings: 'Vampire Diaries,' 'Beauty and Beast' bow beautifully

The last time I led with a CW show in a ratings report was … well, never, but the debut of Beauty and the Beast and the return of The Vampire Diaries deserve some applause. The debut of the Kristin Kreuk show that’s a reboot of the 80s’ drama with Ron Perlman and Linda Hamilton averaged 3.1 million viewers on Thursday, up 63% in adults 18-49 and 33% in adults 18-34 versus what The Secret Circle did last season. It, combined with the fourth season return of The Vampire Diaries (which was not only up 25% in women 18-34 but beat ABC and NBC in that demo), ended up giving the network a win among females 12-17 (2.2 rating/8 share) — a target demo that’s not particularly interested in watching Joe Biden condescend to Paul Ryan.

Now back to our regular programming. Ratings are a bit screwy (and expected to change) because of the live Vice Presidential debate and the hand-wringing analysis that followed, but here’s what we know based on preliminary numbers: CBS had the best night in 18-49 (2.7/7) and viewers (9.3 million) with The Big Bang Theory earning a 4.2/13 and 13.7 million viewers and Two & A Half Men posting a 3.4/9 and 11.1 million. Its coverage of the debate earned a 2.2/5 while its analysis snagged a 1.6/4. READ FULL STORY

'Vampire Diaries:' Nina Dobrev, Candice Accola and more tease tonight's premiere -- VIDEO

So, what can you expect from the season 4 premiere of The Vampire Diaries tonight? “One giant emotional roller coaster ride,” says star Candice Accola. “Everyone’s just at their breaking point, on edge. Caroline especially.”

She’s not the only one. While Caroline tries to avoid the council, Elena attempts to deal with her transition and the arrival of a new vampire hunter. “It couldn’t be worst timing for there to be a vampire hunter in town,” says Dobrev. No kidding.

Watch the video below to see if you can pick up more hints about tonight’s episode, as well as figure out why co-star Michael Trevino describes the town council as a “cult.” READ FULL STORY

'Vampire Diaries' scoop: Ian Somerhalder teases 'cute' Damon and Elena moment -- VIDEO

Damon and Elena may not be in a relationship when The Vampire Diaries returns on Oct. 11, but that doesn’t mean they won’t be sharing any intimate moments this season.

“There is some stuff that is going to come up this season that I think fans will get a little bit of joy out of,” said Ian Somerhalder, who explained that the love triangle still has a ways to go. “There is a scene [where] Damon pushes [Elena's] buttons a little bit and kind of starts undressing in front of her [and] that throws her for a loop. It was pretty cute.”

Though Somerhalder wouldn’t reveal what happens after Damon finishes undressing, he would say that the scene was so cute that even the crew guys were caught off guard. (Ok, now we’re really curious to see this).

As for how Damon’s going to handle Elena becoming a vampire, Somerhalder says that ultimately, it won’t affect the way he feels about her. “It doesn’t really matter whether she’s a vampire or human being,” he says. “He loves her either way.” Let the swooning commence.

Watch the video below to see what Somerhalder has to say about Elena’s transition and the evolution of the Damon-Elena-Stefan love triangle. READ FULL STORY

'Homeland,' 'Supernatural,' 'Vampire Diaries,' 'The Walking Dead,' 'Covert Affairs': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room

I’m simply floored by the amount of great TV on right now. Maybe I’m addicted. Maybe I need a life. And maybe I don’t care. It’s too much fun.

Also a blast? Answering your questions. So keep ‘em coming: spoilerroom@ew.com and via Twitter @EWSandraG.

‘HOMELAND’: WHAT NOW?!
If you haven’t watched last night’s episode, I recommend you skip over this little section.

I know, it’s rare that I give a spoiler warning within a spoiler column, but I would never want to ruin something as big as what happened at the end of last night’s Homeland. Just when I thought I had an idea of where the season was headed, my theory blew up in my face just two episodes in! READ FULL STORY

'Vampire Diaries' scoop: Ian Somerhalder, Nina Dobrev talk vampire sex -- VIDEO

Elena may not be thrilled to wake up in transition when The Vampire Diaries returns on Oct. 11, but there’s at least one undead activity for her to look forward to: vampire sex.

“All the rage is this vampire sex,” said Nina Dobrev, when we caught up with her on the set a few weeks ago. “Unfortunately, I can’t tell you who Elena’s going to have it with but she definitely will have some and it’s definitely going to be hot and heavy and sexy and fun.”

Though Dobrev wouldn’t name the lucky guy, co-star Ian Somerhalder confirmed that his character wasn’t a contender.

“It’s not going to be Damon,” he said. “It’s all about Stefan.” Or so he thinks. (When we cross-checked with Dobrev, she seemed totally surprised that Somerhalder suggested Elena does the deed with the younger Salvatore).

Having seen the first two episodes, we’ll say only this: There’s one particular scene that we’re sure will have the entire fandom debating what really qualifies as “vampire sex.” Ponder that. (Then press play after the jump to watch Somerhalder and Dobrev tackle the topic). READ FULL STORY

Daniel Gillies talks 'The Vampire Diaries' in Spoiler Room Video Edition

Take it from me: The Vampire Diaries is easily one of the most difficult shows to conduct interviews about because of the serialized nature of the story. Teasing — it’s an art. But I have to say, Daniel Gillies really held his own when he sat down on the Spoiler Room couch for a chat while in town recently promoting the Oct. 11 return of The Vampire Diaries and his film Broken Kingdom, out today.

Thanks to everyone who submitted questions for the actor. The fruits of your labors have produced the following scoop on Elijah’s return, the next flashback episode, and much more. Click below to check it out — and to hear Gillies say the phrase “take our pants off.”
