Last week was the first time we’ve really seen Rossi vulnerable and almost completely defeated on Criminal Minds, and it was kind of heartbreaking to watch. When on a case, Rossi got surprised by the bad guy and was nearly killed. Thankfully, the guy let him live, even if it was for a “look where I had you; I could have killed you” reason. The shocker for me was that the girl at the end was his daughter. He was creepy, and I’ll be anxious to see how the team catches him as the Big Bad in the final season. I did love how involved Crystal, Rossi’s ex-wife/current fiancée was in the story. She was there for him and listened to him as he told the story, and it let us see how she handles his job.

On tonight’s episode, “Sick and Evil,” the BAU leads the investigation into a string of murders taking place in supposedly haunted houses in Lewiston, Maine.

See if they run into any ghosts tonight on CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Goldbergs, Schooled, Guy’s Grocery Games, Modern Family, Single Parents, & Match Game.

Time flies when you are a historical dramatization of the Vikings because it’s already time for the season finale of part II of season five (of Vikings 😉 ). It’s been a pretty exciting leg of the tale so far, and a huge brother versus brother showdown will end it tonight. Last week we saw the aftermath of Ivar’s murder of his deformed baby. His wife knew he killed it and demanded he confess. The Queen Mother Judith in Wessex had also passed away of breast cancer. We saw what really happened to Lagertha at the end of the last battle: she crawled from the battlefield and was rescued by a witch that nursed her back to health. Floki went deep into a cave seeking the gods but instead found a Christian altar. Screaming in dismay caused the cave to collapse on top of him.

The best fight scene, possibly of the season, was the one-on-one fight between Ubbe & King Frodo to decide if the Danish Vikings should accept land to farm on or go to war with Wessex. It was a brutal bloody battle that raged for several minutes. In the end, Ubbe won, but near death he saw a vision of Odin and the other Norse gods. Later when he was recovering, he told his wife Torvi that he didn’t really believe in Jesus and he retained his faith in the Norse gods. Sailing back to Kattegat, King Harald and Bjorn fought for a minute, but Bjorn’s new lover Gunnhild broke it up, suggesting they fight after Ivar was dead. Gunnhild, btw, was a one fine, deadly tall glass of mead. In England, Ragnar’s dream was finally fulfilled as the Danish Vikings were officially given their land to farm, but Ubbe, Torvi, and a recovered Lagertha decided to return to Kattegat. Bjorn and Hvitserk reunited and decided to join armies on the eve of separate planned attacks on Ivar. This means: huge massive battle for the finale. I am almost certain one of the brothers will die. Maybe that nasty bastard Ivar finally gets it. But please, Ubbe is turning out to be so cool. Let’s keep him alive!!

On tonight’s episode, “Ragnarok,” a new battle for Kattegat is on and only the gods know who will emerge victorious.

See who comes out ahead in the season finale on History Channel at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching Deadly Class, Full Frontal with Samantha Bee, and You’re the Worst.

I have been really enjoying FOX’s new whosungit mystery musical competition series, The Masked Singer. There are some really talented singers in this competition who I can’t wait to see unmasked! Last week, it was Poodle who came in last place and was forced to remove her mask. It turned out to be comedian Margaret Cho…and even her own co-star, judge Ken Jeong, didn’t recognize her! Some of the celebrities have their own tell-tale identifiers…like two weeks ago when Deer Terry Bradshaw’s giggle gave him away (I don’t watch football, but even I recognized that laugh from his time on Better Late Than Never. Tonight, we get to see half of the remaining masked singers (Lion, Rabbit, Alien, and Unicorn) perform both individually and as a group before one of them is forced to reveal his or her identity. I’m looking forward to seeing how all these people are able to harmonize – do they even know who one another are, or were all of their rehearsals done in their masks?!

Who are the celebs behind these masks?! I’m betting that Rabbit is a former boy band member (Lance Bass, Kevin Scott Richardson, or Brian Littrell?) and is safe tonight, and Lion seems to have some proper vocal chops, so she is likely safe as well. Based on their previous performances, I’m guessing that either Alien or Unicorn will go home tonight, but any of these masked singers could suddenly surprise the audience with a knock-out performance and stay. Who do you think these people are, who is your favorite masked singer, and who do you think will go home?

On tonight’s episode, “Mix and Masks,” the first group of celebrity singers return to the stage to perform individually and as a group to keep themselves in the competition..

See who’s unmasked tonight on FOX at 9/8c.

I’ll also be recording The Goldbergs, Schooled, Modern Family, Single Parents, Match Game, Celebrity Big Brother, Schitt’s Creek, MythBusters Jr, The Magicians, Deadly Class, and I’m Sorry.

If I’m being honest, I actually do not like American football at all, so I usually don’t love shows about it, but All American has become a weekly must-watch for me. Every week we have been getting deeper and deeper into the lives of the characters, and it is incredibly intriguing. Last week, Spencer decided to do something to give back to his community by cleaning up the park and trying to take it back from the gangs. It was a rocky road, but he accomplished his goal with some help and the kids were able to play in the park again. Elsewhere, Billy found out that Jordan has been going to see his grandfather despite being warned he shouldn’t. In the end, Jordan realized that his grandpa was willing to use him for money. I am looking forward to seeing what happens to these two young athletes as the season continues.

On tonight’s episode, “All Eyez on Me,” at a college recruiting event, Spencer’s former teammates from Crenshaw show up, which causes Spencer to lose focus. Olivia comes to Asher’s aid, while Jordan struggles with the opportunities that comes with being Billy Baker’s son.

To see how everyone handles the pressure, tune in to The CW at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching The Masked Singer, Riverdale, Criminal Minds, Gordon Ramsay’s 24 Hours to Hell and Back, and Single Parents.
