Tonight, the fourth season of The Flash begins on The CW. As the third season came to a close, Team Flash had its final showdown with speedster Savitar, who turned out to be a future version of Barry. In the process, H.R. sacrificed himself to save Iris, Caitlin learned there’s a cure for her condition, Cisco modified Savitar’s stolen Speed Cannon so that it would release Jay Garrick from prison, and Gypsy returned from across the multiverse to save Cisco. During the final altercation, Barry couldn’t bring himself to kill Savitar, but Iris was more than willing to do the deed, shooting him dead. Afterwards, Central City was being rocked by earthquakes. The Speed Force was unstable and the prison needed a replacement, so Barry volunteered to go, since all of this mess was due to his selfish acts. Meanwhile, Caitlin refused to take the cure, as she wanted to figure out who she really was.

Who will step up to protect Central City in Barry’s absence? How and when will Barry return from the Speed Force, and how will his time there have affected him? With Caitlin refusing to take the cure, is there a danger of her becoming evil again? With H.R. dead, will we see another version of Dr. Wells appear to take his place?

The third season was a bit of a downer, with Barry constantly moping about something or further messing things up due to his selfishness. Also, it was the third year in a row where the big villain was yet another speedster. The producers have promised to address these issues this season, getting this back to a more chill Barry and the lighter, more fun show people loved in the first season. Also, this year the big bad will not be yet another speedster! The Flash still remains my favorite of The CW’s superhero shows, and I’m looking forward to another season.

On tonight’s premiere, “The Flash Reborn,” a powerful armored villain threatens to level Central City if the Flash doesn’t appear, so Cisco makes a risky decision to break Barry out of the speed force. But the Barry that comes out isn’t the same Barry that went in.

Find out what’s different about Barry since his return tonight on The CW at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Middle, Fresh Off the Boat, black-ish, The Mayor, Kevin (Probably) Saves the World, Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders, The Mick, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, American Horror Story: Cult, and Chrisley Knows Best.

Last week’s Lethal Weapon felt a bit like a different show. After finally catching the man behind his wife’s murder, even if he wasn’t the one to actually kill the head of the cartel, and then pretty much taking down the rest of the cartel as well, Riggs was almost…happy. He was faking it pretty hard, anyway. He even went so far as to push on the case they caught to bring in Palmer from the DEA, just so he could see her again. In the end, he’s still a little lost as to how to live without his wife and child, but he’s trying now – to live instead of trying to die, and that’s an improvement. How it goes from there for him, we shall see… Also, Murtaugh spent the episode trying to both hide from and confront his past when their boss’s new boss joined the team to help figure out who or what is causing the problems (meaning all the explosions, etc last season). Of course, we know it was all Riggs up to this point, dragging Murtaugh in with him. But Gina Santos only saw the friendly, helpful, professional Riggs and saw the craziness that went on with Murtaugh and Capt. Avery, so she believes they’re the problem. Hah. It also turned out that she and Murtaugh were partnered up years ago…for two days AND a night…and he believes she had a finger linger (O.M.G. I was dying at that. LOL) that showed she was interested in him, and he transferred because of it. He’s carried that belief all these years. At first it looked like he was just obsessing over nothing, but maybe not. She was a little creepy amusing at the end!

I think the show is hitting it right on target so far in season 2, and I can’t wait to see it continue!

On tonight’s episode, “Born To Run,” Murtaugh and Riggs investigate the mysterious death of famous singer Shaye’s (guest star JoJo) bodyguard. Murtaugh turns to his daughter, a fan of the singer, to learn more about Shaye’s background and uncover the possible suspects. Meanwhile, Riggs learns the responsibilities that come with being in a relationship with help from Murtaugh. Hilarie Burton also guest stars.

See if Riana can help her dad tonight on FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Chopped Junior, MasterChef Canada, NCIS, The Little Couple, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Kevin (Probably) Saves the World, The Mayor, Chopped, & NCIS: New Orleans.

Bull is always pushing the buttons of my emotions, and last week was a flurry of them. A young man assisted his terminally ill girlfriend in committing suicide, despite not wanting to. Bull took pity on him and had the team represent him, even though his family couldn’t pay. It was a successful ending even though it was a sad moment watching the young man feel guilty for his girlfriend’s death. I’m always amazed at intricate way the team works together to help their clients, and I can’t wait to see more.

On tonight’s episode, “A Business of Favors,” the DA’s office asks Bull to assist them in their prosecution of a fraternity when a pledge accidentally drowns during a hazing incident, but his efforts may be derailed when the students close ranks to stonewall him.

To find out if Bull can help the DA, tune in to CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching NCIS: New Orleans, The Voice, Lethal Weapon, Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders, and This is Us.
