After two seasons in a row of Lost Girl, we finally reach a really big finale as Bo faces the mysterious, fiery-winged Garuda, and then Touch returns with a never-before-seen standalone episode from season one that airs several weeks before the season-two premiere.

Also this week, Parish and Rosen square off on Alphas, an artifact is stretching people to death on Warehouse 13, the contestants must create "Alice in Zombieland" on Face Off, Battlestar Galactica's Richard Hatch meets someone who needs a serious Collection Intervention, Jason and the gang go to camp on Ghost Hunters, Ryan gets jealous on Wilfred, Zak and the gang return for a new season of lockdowns on Ghost Adventures, the Doctor puts his cowboy hat back on on Doctor Who, Syfy has another movie double-header with Aladdin and the Death Lamp and Pegasus vs. Chimera, and Theresa hires a helper on Long Island Medium.

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

Monday, Sept. 10

Alphas (Syfy) 8 p.m. - "Gods and Monsters"

Here's a unique problem for an artifact to cause. Pete and Myka hunt for an artifact that causes people to get taller and stretch to death. Danielle Nicolet guest-stars.

Face Off (Syfy) 9 p.m. - "Alice in Zombieland"

Freaky twist alert! This week the contestants get to create characters from Alice's Adventurers in Wonderland ... after they've been hit with a zombie virus. Paul W.S. Anderson guest-judges.

Here's a promo:

Collection Intervention (Syfy) 10:00 p.m. - "No More Arigato, Mr. Roboto"

Richard Hatch alert! Collectible expert Elyse Luray and Battlestar Galactica's original Apollo join forces to help an overwhelmed collector. And then Luray heads off to help a Japanese robot collector.

Wednesday, Sept. 12

Ghost Hunters (Syfy) 9 p.m. - "Camp Fear"

TAPS investigates Camp Rutledge in George, where ghost stories around the campfire just might be coming true. And then it's off to help a North Carolina family who believe they are dealing with a haunting in their house.

Friday, Sept. 14

Touch (Fox) 8 p.m. - "The Road Not Taken"

Lost episode alert! Well, maybe the episode hasn't been exactly lost, but for some reason Fox never aired it as part of season one. They're calling this a stand-alone episode, which likely won't address the events of the season-one finale. In the episode, Martin's car breaks down right where he got his first job as a reporter. Season two premieres on Friday, Oct. 26, at 8 p.m.

There's no preview of this episode, but here's a sneak peek at season two:

Ghost Adventures (Travel) 9 p.m. - "Central Unit Prison"

Season-seven premiere! Zak Bagans and his team head to Sugar Lands, Texas, to investigate Central Unit Prison, which closed in 2011 after 102 years of use. No doubt this should be one interesting lockdown for the guys, considering there's bound to be at least one angry spirit inmate roaming the halls somewhere in there.

Here's a sneak peek:

Lost Girl (Syfy) 10 p.m. - "Flesh and Blood"

Season-two finale! Trick gives a weapon to Bo that may help her in the coming battle. Meanwhile, Dyson makes an admission to Bo. Could it have anything to do with him having his romantic mojo back? Then the big throwdown with the Garuda is finally here. Oh, yeah! Season three is in the works and will probably return in January 2013.

Doctor Who (BBC America) 9 p.m. - "A Town Called Mercy"

The Doctor vs. the wild west alert! The Doctor breaks out his cowboy hat one more time for a rootin'-tootin' western adventure. Naturally he drags the Ponds along for a visit to a small town that's got a bit of a cyborg problem. What to do? What to do? How about become sheriff so he can take on the steely-eyed cyborg and save the town? There's only two more episodes after this one before the Ponds say goodbye to Doctor Who.

Here's a look:

Aladdin and the Death Lamp (Syfy) 7 p.m.

Fringe's Sabastian Roche stars in this matchup that pits the legendary flying "war horse of the Gods," the Pegasus, against the legendary Chimera in a tale of good vs. evil. Besides stomping on the Chimera, we're not sure what weapons the Pegasus has, but okay. Why not? We love Sebastian Roche, so Sebastian, make us believe!
