Spoiler alert! We're about to dig into the biggest, most jaw-dropping moments from Sunday night's TV. If you haven't yet watched a particular show, and don't want to be spoiled, skip to the next!

The Walking Dead: Finally! This week was such an action-packed episode, it made last week's hour look like a walk in the world's most boring park. Most of our post-apocalyptic family members are still alive, (yay!) but they're all separated and isolated from one another.  Ready for a roll call? Daryl and Beth: Alive and losing hope. Lizzie, Mika, Tyreese and… (ta-daaa!) baby Judth are safe and by the end of the hour were reunited with recently-banished Carol and set off to a placed called Terminus. Its slogan was pretty grim: "Those who arrive, survive." Interesting…

Bob, and Sasha followed a desperate (and alive!) Maggie in her quest to be reunited with her beau. So did our former pizza delivery guy make it out of the prison chaos? Yep! Glenn teamed up with Tara in order to escape a particularly nasty gang of walkers in order to find his "wife" Maggie. (Side-Note: We just about died when Glenn referred to Maggie as his wife! They need to be reunited asap!) In the episode's last two minutes, Glenn and Tara were introduced to a brand-new character, Sgt. Abraham Ford, a man, who all the comic book fans know, is supposed to be a compete and total badass Be careful Glenn! Are you relieved that Judith is alive?! Shout out your excitement in the comments below!

Downton Abbey: Love was in the air on this week's episode of Downton Abbey—and it has nothing to do with Valentine's Day! Alfred proposed to Ivy in a letter, but our lady quickly turned down his offer in a letter of her own. Ouch! That's like being dumped, via text message. Mary discovered that Rose and Jack have been having a secret romance, and Rose revealed that Jack has popped the question and she fully plans on accepting.

However, Jack seemed to have changed his mind by the time that Mary caught up with him. Jack admitted that he intends to break off the engagement to spare his fiancée a lifetime of being stared at and ostracized. Well, we guess that's... romantic? Meanwhile, in other acts of secrecy, Rosemund has volunteered to take Edith's baby away to France and put the little bundle of joy up for adoption. Unfortunately, it only took Violet about 2.5 seconds to realize the ladies' not-so-secretive plan. Lastly, after a long talk with her father-in-law, Daisy decided to big her crush a heartfelt and final farewell. Aww…



Looking: Things got intimate in tonight's all-new episode of endearing HBO hit! "Looking for the Future" solely focused on the budding relationship between Patrick and his new bartender/cosmetologist boy-toy, Richie. It was a "bottle episode" of sorts, as all 25 minutes were dedicated to one date and we really discovered just how far Patrick's sex life has evolved in just a few episodes. Viewers even witnessed Patrick's O-face during a sexually charged scene, in which Richie was seen bobbing back and forth, giving his new beau some oral pleasure first thing in the morning. It was definitely an eye-popping episode, felt like a huge leap forward in for this groundbreaking series.  

True Detective: After last week's absolutely incredible final scene, we didn't know how True Detective would top it, but tonight's episode continued to fire on all cylinders and proved that this show desperately needs at least five seasons and a movie. The show also shifted gears, putting the setting in 2002, and leaving what happened between then and 2010 as the real mystery. Basically all you really need to know is that by the end of tonight's episode, "The Secret Fate Of All Life," Rust was revealed to be a prime suspect for the killings. The detectives who were pitching this new twist claimed that Rust's brilliance regarding these heinous crimes is a result of his involvement. And so the plot thickens!

Shameless: Shame on you, Fiona! After last week's cocaine party, little Liam ended up in the hospital this week because he accidently ingested some of the extremely harmful drugs. With Fiona locked up in county jail, Lip came back to town to check on the fate of his baby brother who could have ended up with permanent brain damage. Luckily, Liam is going to be just fine, but after Robbie freed Fiona with some hefty bail fines, she lost her boyfriend and could now possibly lose the kids as well.

Frank also woke up in the hospital with a doctor and a grave Sammi by his side. The doc confirmed our fears: Frank doesn't have much time left and no amount of surgery cane save him at this point. By the end of he episode, Sammi was introduced to the rest of the Gallaghers and they all seemed to really get along—which could definitely be a good thing if Fiona does indeed lose custody of the kids.

Girls: There's about to be a what? a girl fight! Marnie, still desperate to get over Charlie, arranged a trip to the beach for the gang at family friend's beach house—and it was by far the most toxic trip we've ever seen in Girls' history. Hanna, who has recently revealed that she desperately despises Marnie, bumped into Elijah and against Marnie's wishes, invited him and his "Magic Mike" friends over for dinner. 

While Hanna and Elijah were making fun of Marnie's dinner that she spent all day cooking, Shoshanna was quietly busy getting "cruel drunk." And in the episode's best moment, Sosh unleashed a wave of anger and unfiltered insults upon the group, and targeted Hanna as "a fucking narcissist." Sosh yelled at Hanna, "I wanted to fall asleep in my own vomit all day listening to you talk about how you bruise more easily than other people," adding that all three of them were a "bunch of whiny fucking nothings." Not gonna lie, we love all shades of Shoshanna, but unapologetically-pissed off Shoshanna is definitely our favorite.

Line of the Night: "I just want to prove to everyone via Instagram that we can still have fun as a group." Oh, Marnie, we all have a friend like you. Athough we may groan at your incessant needs to "capture the moment," deep down, we're glad you snap those pics and pick the best filter possible. (Earlybird, FTW!)
