Last week was big for Halloween and baseball, and while we still have some Halloween to look forward to, especially with American Horror Story and Ghost Hunters, baseball is done, which means we can get back to Terra Nova and Fringe.

Also, Robert Englund (aka Freddie!) pops up on a non-sci-fi show filled with sci-fi people, Elena takes on Rebekah on The Vampire Diaries, Cassie locks lips with the newest member of The Secret Circle, Carrie-Anne Moss joins Chuck as a kick-butt spy, Walter and the gang deal with more mad science and Peter's return on Fringe, someone's murdering mediums on Supernatural, Tesla's back on Sanctuary, Snow White and Prince Charming meet for the first time on Once Upon a Time and something's driving Shane to act weird on The Walking Dead.

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

Monday, Oct. 31

Terra Nova (Fox) 8 p.m. - "Bylaw"

Jim sinks his teeth into a big investigation when Terra Nova gets it's first murder. Meanwhile, Elisabeth and Zoe try to save an unborn ankylosaurus and Skye — in what's obviously a new mating technique — continues her efforts to help Josh bring his girlfriend from 2149 to the colony.
