Castle (ABC) 10 p.m. - "Demons"

You've got to love the way this show falls into genre subjects at the drop of a hat. And what could be better than Castle and Beckett in a famous mansion hunting ghosts, or at least the murderer of a popular ghost hunter?

Here's a preview:


Once Upon a Time (ABC) 8 p.m. - "The Thing You Love Most"

ABC's new hit digs right back into the story as Regina tries to drive Emma out of Storybrooke and the Evil Queen unleashes her curse on the fairytale world.

Here's a look:


The Walking Dead (AMC) 9 p.m. - "Save the Last One"

With Carl's life hanging in the balance, the group waits for Shane's return. However, Shane is stuck at a school that's surrounded by zombies. Meanwhile, Daryl and Andrea hunt for the missing Sophia.

Here's a look and a sneak peek:
