mikemolly516smallIt’s been a long road for Mike & Molly, but the journey ends tonight, with the double-episode series finale. The last few episodes have focused on Molly and Mike and their quest to adopt a baby. Last week, they learned that Frannie (Molly’s former student who was now homeless and pregnant) planned to dance on a speaker for a friend’s band after she had the baby, which Molly was very unhappy about. So Molly did some snooping in Frannie’s bag and found a letter from her sister, Maura. She got the bright idea to invite Maura to see Frannie. At first Frannie was mad and refused to speak to Maura because she’d left Frannie with their horrible parents, but the pair eventually made up, and Maura said she wanted Frannie AND the baby to move in with her. That was great for them but bad for Molly and Mike, who wouldn’t get to adopt her baby. Then in the next episode, they decided to try with an adoption agency. It went well…until they had to schedule a home visit. Mike invited Carl and Samuel over in order to have the “black friend” and “foreign friend” demographic covered, and Molly tried her best to make everyone and everything picture perfect. Of course, things went sideways, especially when Mike tried to lean on the crib, only to decapitate the baby doll when the side dropped. Needless to say, they didn’t get to adopt a baby through that agency.

We’ve been with Mike and Molly and their families from the very first meeting, to dating, marriage, and now them trying to start a family. So how will the series end? I’ve seen both episodes, and it really is a fun, sweet, and fitting ending. I’ll be sad to see the show go after tonight.

On tonight’s first episode, “Curse of the Bambino,” Carl convinces Mike to go with him to see his psychic and Peggy drags Molly to her church to pray for something they’ve all been waiting for. Melissa McCarthy directed the episode. Then on the series finale, “I See Love,” Mike and Molly gather with family and friends for a momentous occasion and reminisce about everything that led to this point.

See if Mike and Molly can get everything they want tonight on CBS starting at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Person of Interest & Blindspot.

batesmotel516smallTonight, another season of Bates Motel comes to a close, and I don’t know how they are going to top last week’s tense episode! Last week Norman was having a difficult time accepting that Romero had come between him and his mother and even told his therapist that Romero had only married his mother for the money (what money?!). Norma got extremely upset when Romero suggested that Norman shouldn’t be living at home, so he consulted with Dylan and asked him to be the second family member to sign the form in order to get Norman committed. Dylan later found an earring belonging to Emma’s mother at the house and knew that Norman was involved in her disappearance. He confronted Norma, but she just got upset, so he stormed out, hugging Norman good-bye, and headed off to sign the form. That night, Norman dressed up in some of Emma’s mother’s old clothes, started a fire in the furnace, and then closed all of the air vents in the house, except the one in his mother’s bedroom. He lay down next to Norma and closed his eyes, hoping they’d die in their sleep together. Romero arrived later that evening, and when no one answered the door, he broke in, and when he saw what was happening, he dragged both bodies into the hallway for air. While Norman eventually opened his eyes, Norma remained unresponsive.

Have we finally reached that big event the series has been building to since the beginning…Norma’s predestined death?! It seemed like Romero was pretty convinced she was dead. If so, how will this push Norman even further down his path of craziness? What is next for him, and what will the show set up going into the fifth season?

On tonight’s episode, “Norman,” the relationship between Norman and Norma faces its toughest test; Romero faces pressure due to his actions; and Dylan considers reaching out to Norman.

Find out how the season ends tonight on A&E at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Castle, Blindspot, Gotham, Houdini & Doyle, Jane the Virgin, The Detour, 12 Monkeys, and TURN: Washington’s Spies.

blindspot516smallBlindspot has been an adventure since it premiered, and I honestly adore this show. It never ceases to amaze me how twisted the writers can be, and last week’s episode was no exception. The team was locked in when a hacker took control of the systems and locked the whole building down. They were after the lists of FBI operatives who were undercover. Thankfully, the team stopped them in time. The bigger issue was that Bethany is being framed for the murder of the woman she was seeing and Carter, which Jane realized she’s helped do. I’m not sure where this is going, but Jane is very upset about this, and I’m sure it’s going to cause some issues with her handlers.

On tonight’s episode, “If Love a Rebel, Death will Render,” after an abandoned baby is found with a tattoo identical to one of Jane’s, the team races to piece together the child’s identity and save dozens of infants. A furious Jane confronts Oscar about the outcome of his secret missions.

To find out if they can save the babies, tune in to NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching The Voice and Person of Interest.
