If We Controlled Your Remote… 5/18/18

Have you ever been at a loss as to what to watch? Too many shows to pick from? We’re here to give you our opinions on what we feel is worth watching. Check it out and then let us know in the comments below what you’re choosing for tonight!

Last week’s Blindspot set up not only this week’s season finale but also some potentially huge changes for certain members of the team. We got to see a flashback to Jane and Roman as kids, when Shepherd pitted them against each other playing a game in order to determine who would do the chores (each loss meant another chore added to their list). Jane beat Roman every time until the last game, where she threw the game so he’d win. Shepherd knew what she’d done and punished Jane for it, making her do all the chores, telling her that Roman would never learn if she did that. Given what wonderful parenting Shepherd did when they were kids, it’s no wonder both Jane & Roman were effed up as adults!

The team worked together (using intel they gathered from Shepherd, who the CIA brought back for interrogation, and Lynette) to stop a bomb in the United Nations…only to figure out that the real targets were the leaders of two African countries who were coming together in a peace treaty of sorts against Crawford, who’d been trying to buy a pipeline from their countries. He wanted the pipeline rerouted to get to the land he’d purchased. So the team figured out the UN bombing was only a setup to get the African leaders out in the open so Roman could assassinate them. Jane & Weller got them out safely with only a few minor wounds, and they now have enough to arrest Crawford! Unfortunately, Zapata was caught on camera going back in and taking the phone one of the African leaders left in the building, and when she was confronted about it, she said Keaton (ie: the CIA) had told her to. Keaton once again showed his true colors and denied knowledge, and Zapata was then fired. That led to a close encounter with Reade in the locker room…including a kiss that sent Zapata scurrying away when it became too much for her…but then it turned into sexy timez at Reade’s apartment when Zapata showed up and said she just wanted to do what felt right.

The end was all about Roman and Jane: the tattoo database was suddenly working right again, meaning no more interference from Roman, and all that was left was a video Roman left Jane, saying he wanted to play One. More. Game. And that leads us into tonight’s season finale, where Jane (& the team, I’m assuming?) and Roman head home for the big showdown. Eek! (Oh, and the mysterious illness or whatever that Roman is suffering from is getting worse and worse, and Blake confronted Roman about his involvement with the bomb threat at the UN. Fun stuff!)

On tonight’s episode, “In Memory,” Jane and Weller hunt Roman back to where it all started…Can they stop him at last?

Catch the (final?) showdown between Jane and Roman tonight on NBC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing MasterChef: Junior & Hawaii Five-0.

Hawaii Five-0 has had an eventful season with new cast members joining while old favorites exited. I wanted to dislike the new team members, but I actually love them. Junior has become quite the sidekick for McGarrett, and he has such a good heart – a heart which I hope is in love with Tani. They make a fantastic couple, and I really can’t wait for them to see what I see.

Speaking of Tani, on the last episode she found a gun in a drawer at Adam’s house, so now she isn’t sure what to do. While I’m not happy with Adam killing his half-sister, I’d be really sad if Adam is off the series for good.

On tonight’s episode, “Waiho Wale Kahiko (Ancients Exposed),” McGarrett and Five-0 discover a Russian spy ring hiding in plain sight when a Russian nuclear attack submarine appears off the coast of Waikiki. Also, Tani is conflicted by her unnerving discovery at Adam’s house.

To see if the team can stop the attack before it’s too late, tune in to CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching Blindspot and MasterChef: Junior.
