Welcome back, Sunday night shows. Oh, how we've missed you.
Thanks to some fancy awards shows (cough—Golden Globes—cough) taking over Sunday TV real estate recently, some of our favorite shows, including Revenge and Once Upon a Time, have been on hiatus. Alas, they finally returned to us tonight, as did The Walking Dead, which resumed its third season tonight, and we were treated to a hot guest star on Girls...
Girls' Lack of Girls: Listen, Patrick Wilson playing naked ping-pong is nice and all, but we tune into Girls for all the girls, not just Hannah (Lena Dunham), which is why we were less than crazy about tonight's outing "One Man's Trash." The entire episode centered on Hannah's lost weekend with handsome recently separated doctor Joshua (Wilson) and felt completely self-indulgent and self-congratulatory. In fact, it was our least favorite episode of the show yet. Sorry, Dunham, but remember, tough love is still love.
Revenge Retools: After making unintentionally hilarious phone calls and hiding behind corners, Revenge killed off The Initiative's Helen (Wendy Crewson). (And the crows goes wild!) We're glad the ABC soap is aware of the less-than-enthusiastic fan response to the Initiative storyline and its impact on season two, so Helen's death will not exactly be mourned by us. And how could we when she was taken out by our Queen Victoria (Madeleine Stowe) who oh-so-casually steps over her dead body while enjoying a drink?
Fashion Statement of the Night: Nolan's (Gabriel Mann) dashing white outfit that he wore while officiating Jack (Nick Wechsler) and Amanda's (Margarita Levieva) wedding ceremony on Revenge. Stylish as ever, Nol!
Lost Flashbacks: Isn't half the fun of Once Upon a Time is catching all the references to Lost? The Easter eggs in tonight's outing included Gold (Robert Carlyle) and Emma (Jennifer Morrison) taking Ajira Airlines, Belle (played by Lost alum Emilie De Ravin) watching Exposé on the hospital TV and receiving "a mysterious island" as a gift.
Recaps Galore: Over on Downton Abbey, Bates (Brendan Coyle) is out of prison (finally!), but it seems like Thomas (Rob James-Collier) might be taking his spot because of his sexuality. Say whaaa?! Find out all about it in our recap. On The Walking Dead, someone left the prison, another character is seeing a ghost, and four newbies are stirring up trouble. Read our recap of the midseason premiere.
Lines of the Night: "I passed out," Hannah says on Girls after staying in a hot shower for too long, and Captain Hook's (Colin O'Donohue) cheeky, "I was tied up, and not in a good way."
