After months of hype, we finally get to see NBC's mind-bending new series Awake, Sir Lancelot returns from the dead thanks to a wicked Morgana on Syfy's Merlin, and Lost Girl gets spidery this week.

Also, an innocent 63 commits crimes on Alcatraz, the werewolf twins go after Aidan on Syfy's Being Human, there's a fairy-tale killer on the loose on Castle, the Magus has a collision with another ship on The River, the artists face a Tim Burton challenge on Face Off, Shawn and Gus dig into an Indiana Jones-style adventure on Psych, Archer's sex life causes problems again on Archer, the roomies meet others they have a lot in common with on BBC America's Being Human, Kathryn goes missing on Once Upon a Time, and decisions are made that may affect the group's humanity 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 have sci-fi or fantasy themes.
