theflash329smallOn last week’s episode of The Flash, the gang was enjoying a night out on the town at a local club when a mystery speedster showed up to rob all of the patrons of their purses and wallets. Barry tried to chase down Trajectory, but she was much faster than him. The gang soon discovered that this new speedster was a woman and that she got her powers by taking Velocity 9 serum that she had reverse-engineered. Trajectory became addicted to the serum, started dangerously increasing her dosages, and ultimately ended up running so fast that she literally disintegrated. However, witnessing this gruesome event sparked something inside of Barry, and he became suspicious of Jay’s death. Cisco vibed about Zoom and confirmed these suspicions – in his vision, he saw Zoom unmask himself, and it was Jay!

How is this news going to affect Caitlin? And now that the gang has closed all the portals, how is Barry going to find a way to Earth 2 to confront Jay/Zoom? And if he does get there, how does he plan to defeat his seemingly unstoppable arch-nemesis? I’m looking forward to finding out in tonight’s second Flash adventure of the week!

On tonight’s episode, “Flash Back,” Barry becomes determined to get back to Earth-2 to stop Zoom, but he realizes he needs to increase his speed. He travels back in time and masquerades as his earlier self to get his arch-nemesis Dr. Harrison to teach him how to run faster. But while there, Barry faces familiar foe Hartley Rathaway and old friend Eddie Thawne. Andy Mientus & Rick Cosnett guest star.

Find out what happens when Barry goes back in time tonight on The CW at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Late Late Show Carpool Karaoke Primetime Special, Fresh Off the Boat, The Real O’Neals, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., New Girl, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, iZombie, American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson, and Chrisley Knows Best.

chicagomed329smallIt’s been over a month since the last Chicago Med, and honestly, it’s hard to remember exactly what happened. A patient came in with a life-threatening heart condition, and the only thing keeping him alive was also making him sick – not as sick as dying, but giving him an ulcer bad enough that he wanted the device keeping him alive removed, even though he knew it would kill him. Dr. Rhodes and Dr. Choi disagreed on how to treat him. Dr. Rhodes wanted to allow the patient to dictate the removal, but Dr. Choi argued against it because it would kill the patient. In the end, Dr. Rhodes went behind Dr. Choi’s back and did what the patient had requested, but both doctors were there at the man’s bedside when he passed away so he didn’t have to die alone. Dr. Manning and Dr. Halstead worked together on a young girl they diagnosed as having meningitis, which they could treat, but the parents were firm anti-vaxxers, which meant their children had all been exposed. When the two doctors went to the little girl’s school to give out vaccinations to those who agreed to get them, one of the teachers fell ill – she’d contracted it via the little girl. When she quit breathing, Dr. Manning – at great risk to herself – gave her mouth to mouth, possibly exposing herself, which was really bad, considering she has an infant at home. Dr. Halstead freaked out and went back to the hospital, yelling at and blaming the parents of the little girl. (The last time he stepped over the line caused him and the hospital to be sued, although hopefully the cancer patient, who is responding well to the treatment, will continue to get better.) Meanwhile, Sarah Reese worked with Dr. Zanetti to diagnose a patient who ended up dying from a flesh-eating bacterial disease. Unfortunately, the patient had been in to see Dr. Unger, an old colleague/friend of Dr. Charles, who dismissed the first signs of the disease as a normal pimple. Had he diagnosed it correctly at the time, they might have been able to stop the disease from spreading. Sarah asked April about Dr. Unger, and April said it wasn’t the first diagnosis he’d missed. In the end, Sharon Goodwin had to report Dr. Unger, and she had to confiscate his badge so he couldn’t practice there at the hospital anymore.

So there we have it. Dr. Halstead is still in the midst of the lawsuit. Dr. Charles is still dealing with learning his friend has been negligent. And Dr. Manning and Dr. Halstead have acknowledged that there are feelings but she isn’t ready for a relationship, what with having a new baby and still being a fairly new widow. I can’t wait to see where the show goes from here!

On tonight’s episode, “Guilty,” Nurse Lockwood gets arrested for refusing to violate hospital policy and draw blood from a suspected DUI patient without his consent. Dr. Halstead discusses with his lawyer the severity of the pending lawsuit against him. Elsewhere, Dr. Manning and Sharon Goodwin deal with a single mother and her 6-month old, but when the baby’s injuries come into question, concerns are raised. Meanwhile, Dr. Charles, who is dealing with some personal issues, and Sarah Reese attend to a patient that was hit by a car, but suspicions abound when they dig deeper. Jason Beghe (Voight, Chicago PD) & David Eigenberg (Herrmann, Chicago Fire) guest star.

See what the doctors can learn about their patients tonight on NBC at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Real O’Neals, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Jill & Jessa: Counting On, Chicago Fire, Chopped, & Separation Anxiety.

chicagofire329smallI’m so glad that Chicago Fire is returning tonight, because I have missed my dose of the sexy firefighters and paramedics of Firehouse 51. On the last new episode, there was a ton of drama going on with Casey’s campaign for Alderman, because Alderman Becks has been bad mouthing Casey to the press, trying to dirty up his good-guy image. Mouch had his bachelor party, which his future brother-in-law tricked him into thinking was going to be a complete snore but turned out it was an epic party that he’d never forget. Chilly is still gone, and Jimmy is working as a paramedic, but I’m wondering if she’s ever coming back and how that will affect Jimmy. Time will tell, I suppose.

On tonight’s episode, “What Happened to Courtney,” while responding to a potential carbon monoxide leak inside a home, Lt. Severide and Cruz uncover the remains of a child inside the chimney. Subsequent information leads Severide to believe that the discovery may be linked to a case he had worked on years ago. Meanwhile, with election day nearing, Casey braces for the worst in his run for Alderman, prompting Dawson to enlist the firehouse team to lend a hand to the cause. Complicating his chances, Alderman Becks continues to bad mouth Casey to the press, but an incident in the field might prove beneficial. Nick Gehlfuss (Will Halstead, Chicago Med, Marina Squerciati (Burgess, Chicago PD), Miranda Rae Mayo, & Holly Robinson Peete also guest star.

To find out if Casey can rise above the dirt in this campaign, tune in to NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching Chicago Med, Limitless, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, and The Voice.
