TV THIS WEEK: Game of Thrones goes to war, Awake ends and more!

Think all the finales are over? Think again! NBC's Awake finishes its season (and its entire story) and Game of Thrones goes to war in its penultimate episode, which you've just got to know means that people are going to die.

Beyond that, those accident-prone citizens of Eureka discover that disaster preparedness isn't all it's cracked up to be, Bo tries to hunt down a graffiti artist on Lost Girl, the Fact or Faked gang hunt a reptilian creature in South Carolina, Joe tries to find the holy grail of props on Hollywood Treasure, it's a Brave New World With Stephen Hawking as he explores the Earth's environment, the Animal Planet's Monster Week delves into Bigfoot and mermaids on Finding Bigfoot: Further Evidence and Mermaids: The Body Found, and Syfy cooks up another really big fish that can take out a helicopter on Super Shark.

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