Sunday night promises to be a bloody good time for fans of quality cable dramas and made-for-TV gore. The highly anticipated finale of "The Walking Dead" will dish up one final -- and staggering -- body count for the season just as the equally anticipated premiere of HBO's "Game of Thrones" launches viewers back into the world of Westeros (and beyond).
But Sunday night will also be bittersweet. Sure, it'll be packed with perfect programming for horror-and-fantasy-loving nerds, but only one of those shows will be back the following week. As those mama-loving dragons return, the flesh-loving Walkers will walk away. Just as we say hello to one fully witty "half-man", it'll be time to bid Daryl Dixon and his quiver adieu.
What are devoted fans to do? Why, pit their favorite shows against each other, of course! Just for fun.
Before it's a case of one or the other, take a closer both shows and pick your favorite parts from the following match-ups:
- 'Game of Thrones' star: Margaery's 'in for a nasty shock'
- 'Walking Dead' finale exclusives: See Rick, others prepare for battle
- 'Game of Thrones' season three: Five things we can't wait to see
