We welcome two special guests – podcasters Jason and Karen from the award-winning The Walking Dead ‘Cast – to chat with us about life as podcasters and television geeks. Our conversation this week is about television tropes, or themes that come up a lot in different shows (like “hero always gets the girl” or “backpackers are screwed”), and we provide ample examples from Once Upon a Time, The Walking Dead and many more shows. Afterwards, Britt and Amanda go over some of your letters that have been stacking up during this hiatus as well as talk about the many news and spoiler items that have recently been unveiled. Join us for this great episode!

In the aftermath of all the carnage at the prison, we were thrilled to see TWD find its way back to the quiet, measured, dreamlike feel of the series pilot in this coming-of-age episode. At least, that’s our opinion. Listen in and see if you agree.
Also this episode we announce the winner of our Walking Dead Hawaii poster contest, and you can also find out how to win a three-day pass to the quickly approaching Walker Stalker Con in Chicago (Mar 14-16). Also we have the introduction of Gracie Lou and Mr. Blahg as hosts of Comic Talk, their analysis of how this episode was similar and different to the comic, some news, information about next week’s episode, and some fantastic messages from you guys!
(CNN) — She had the most memorable entrance of any character on “The Walking Dead” so far.
Just as Andrea was about to be set upon by a herd of walkers, a shadowy figure dispatched them — with a Katana sword. It was one of the standout moments of the season two finale, and we would soon learn that this person’s name was Michonne, a quiet warrior who had seemingly mastered how to survive in the zombie apocalypse (one bright idea: bring along a couple of chained walkers with no hands or mouths to draw away the others).
Ever since that moment, Michonne, played by Danai Gurira, has been rivaled only by Daryl Dixon in terms of rabid fans. At times, she is a silent force of nature, but has opened up a good deal to the rest of the survivors lately.
The season’s midway point having ended with (spoiler alert!) a brutal attack on the prison, sending the group off in different directions, not to mention the horrifying death of Hershel. CNN spoke with Gurira about what fans can expect when the season returns on Sunday.
Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Lauren Cohan, Steven Yeun, Danai Gurira, and Melissa McBride will be featured in a joint interview tonight on Conan so don’t forget to tune in and celebrate the fact that season four of The Walking Dead returns this Sunday! (x)
