Even though the pickings are a bit slim this week, we still have Fringe, which continues to get its freak on as Lincoln takes a trip Over There, Grimm gets romantic, and things get dicey as Michael tries to stay Awake.

Also this week, Josh considers telling Julia he's a werewolf on Syfy's Being Human, Bo and Dyson play marrieds on Lost Girl, Robert Englund guests as a good guy on Criminal Minds, it's the season-three finale on Ghost Hunters International, Clive and his team make a spider on Monster Man, Stephen Hawking guest-stars on The Big Bang Theory, Martin meets someone who knew his deceased wife on Touch, Annie gets a glimpse of the future on BBC America's Being Human, and lots of stuff happens on Game of Thrones.

Here's what we have to look forward to this week on sci-fi, fantasy, and paranormal TV, along with non-sci-fi shows that feature sci-fi stars.
