TO WATCH

SEASON PREMIERE Game of Thrones, 9 p.m., HBO You've been waiting for the "A Storm of Swords'' story line to start, so here you go. With a title like that, this is sure to be a quiet and relaxed season.

SEASON FINALE The Walking Dead, 9 p.m., AMC Given that readers of the comic know the story line would normally be about to take a turn for the grisly, we still have to wonder a few things: Will the Governor return? Will Andrea wise up? Will Rick return to reality? Will Judith ever become a true plot device? Will a black character survive? Pressing questions, all.
