Chuck's back this week to face off with two of the Gretas in Chuck, we say goodbye to V (and some of the show's characters) in the big season-two finale, and Destination Truth goes live in search of a banshee in Ireland.

Also—everybody's after Thomas on The Event, Aidan lets us know why it sucks to be a vampire on Syfy's Being Human, the Destiny's crew may get a chance to go home on Stargate Universe, the TAPS team investigates the Old U.S. Mint on Ghost Hunters, Archer has breast cancer, alt-Lincoln pops up on Fringe, Uther discovers Arthur's secret romance on Merlin, Herrick's back on BBC America's Being Human, and Hallmark's movie Time After Time gives a man a chance to visit his younger self. While many of the other shows are done with their runs or in reruns, it's almost hard to remember that The Cape was ever on the air.

Here's what we have to look forward to this week on sci-fi, fantasy, paranormal and spy-fi TV.
