'Walking Dead' Facebook spoils mid-season finale

It's hard to keep secrets when something big happens on a show as popular as "The Walking Dead," but fans were enraged Sunday night when the show's official Facebook page revealed a major plot point immediately after the East Coast airing. The spoiler was revealed to those watching in different time zones, including overseas (the show airs Monday nights in the United Kingdom). The Facebook page for the AMC show yanked the original post, and re-posted a few hours later, still causing a dust up with tens of thousands of fans who considered the spoiler to be unfair. "The Walking Dead" returns Feb. 8 at 9 p.m.
