The Walking Dead's season-ender Sunday night led us through and past some disturbing sights – that certainly looked like a mess of human bones with bits of red meat still on them – and then into an abandoned railroad car.

Then a walker tottered in front of the camera, his bony shoulders barely able to hold up a hand-painted sandwich board that said: "THAT'S ALL FOR NOW! SEE YOU NEXT TIME!"

WARNING: Spoilers Ahead.

The Good Wife is now a de facto widow. It's hard to imagine a lonelier, sadder lot than hers.

That's what we experience and learn on Sunday's episode (9 p.m. ET/PT) of the CBS legal drama, an established classic that a week ago, after five seasons, suddenly became the sort of show that sends shock waves up and down the Twitter ladder. Lawyer Will Gardner (Josh Charles) was killed in a courtroom shoot-out in one of the most jolting twists ever – a jaw-dropper in an age when shocking twists are becoming routine as meals.

He's been a rapper. He's been a beatbox instructor. Now, Biz Markie will be a cat.

Well, an animated cat – the "Just a Friend" rapper will guest star on SpongeBob SquarePants as Kenny the Cat, SpongeBob's personal hero.

According to a preview clip released by Nickelodeon, SpongeBob's esteem for Kenny will be tested by an as-yet-unknown discovery, causing Kenny to beg for the asexual sponge's forgiveness. "Above water, I'm a nobody," Markie blubbers, his heart going down south, "but down here, I'm someone special!"

It was one of comedy's most famous feuds: Johnny Carson, angry that frequent guest host Joan Rivers had gotten her own late-night talk show, banned her from The Tonight Show in a fit of pique.

And now it's over.

On Thursday night, Rivers made her first appearance on the Tonight Show couch in 26 years. (Jay Leno, perhaps wary after his rocky introduction, continued Carson's blacklisting; Conan presumably had other things on his mind.)

In this current Golden Age of Television, many of our biggest shows follow what one might call the HBO Rule of Drama: Use each season's penultimate episode for the fireworks, and spend the finale picking up the pieces.

Fortunately, there are still shows out there practicing the ancient art of the season finale cliffhanger – most notably Showtime's Shameless, which wrapped up its fourth season Sunday night by bringing back Justin Chatwin's Steve Wilton, a former boyfriend to Fiona Gallagher (Emmy Rossum), who fans thought murdered at the end of the previous season.

In honor of the throwback nature of the drama's surprising twist – seriously, it was straight out of the Dallas playbook – let's go back in time and run through some of the most shocking finales in TV history. (We're talking season finales here, not series; that's a whole other listicle.) Warning: Major spoilers for all shows below.

"It's been everywhere, PEOPLE, CNN, all the way down to the little local paper in Belfast," the Irish actor, 38, told PEOPLE on March 18 at the Season 4 premiere of Game of Thrones at New York's Lincoln Theater.
