Spoiler alert: The following post contains revelations about Sunday night's episode of "The Walking Dead. " Forget the zombies. When it comes to “The Walking Dead,” no one has shown more guts this season than Carol Peletier. In the course of four seasons, the AMC genre drama has fine-tuned the delicate balance of gut-wrenching - and gut-spilling - moments against its zombie apocalypse backdrop. Behind the din of knives being jammed in heads or the sloshing of innards as they get consumed, are the quiet, equally disquieting, junctures - those that show how brutality of the environment has left its stain on the band of characters.

The Dec. 15 episode of "thirtysomething" was really something! And every one of the previous shows was also well thought out and acted. Milton F. Zimmerman, Pacific Palisades

Neal Marlens and Carol Black, the creators of ABC's "The Wonder Years," had plenty of time last season to hand-craft each episode of the nostalgic comedy, which reminisces about life in suburbia circa 1968 through the eyes of a 12-year-old boy. After all, there were only six episodes. The run was short but sweet--the show won favorable reviews, was picked up for fall and netted an Emmy Award as the season's best comedy series.

If you think Lena Dunham's nudity in “Girls” is a revolutionary act because her body doesn't conform to Hollywood's skin-and-bones-and-boobs ideal (and I do!), then you really have to give her props for taking that unapologetic attitude about her figure to another level in last week's episode of “Girls.” Dunham's character, Hannah Horvath, is often seen in various states of undress, but those scenes usually take place in the privacy of her apartment. In this episode , however, we rarely see her fully clothed.

We read the June 23 letter from the family who turns off "Empty Nest" every time David Leisure and Park Overall appear on the screen and then turn it back on when Dinah Manoff is on. It made this family laugh hysterically. Can people really be so dumb?! Why even bother watching in the first place when two characters/actors so integral to the tone and content of the series (not to mention the sense of the episode's story line) are constantly switched off? We would love to see an episode of "Empty Nest" in which most of the scenes are between Leisure, Overall and Manoff.

Al Halpern's letter (TV Times, June 2) voiced disappointment in the last episode of "Dallas" (CBS, May 3), but that was nothing compared to the last episode of "thirtysomething" (ABC, May 28). How could the writers of the marvelous show traumatize it's loyal fans by not tying up the loose ends better than they did. The possibilities were endless. Susan J. Becker, Oxnard

Caity Lotz joined the cast of "Arrow" this season as Sara Lance, the long-lost sister of Laurel Lance and the newly minted costumed crusader Black Canary. In its second season, "Arrow" has upped its connections to the wider DC Universe, and in this week's episode, "Heir to the Demon," fans will get a look at Nyssa al Ghul (Katrina Law) from the League of Assassins. They will also get a look at a more blissful time in the history of the main characters, back in the days before Oliver Queen's fateful boat trip that resulted in Sara's disappearance.
