If We Controlled Your Remote… 2/26/19

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!

Phoebe’s Choice

Last week on the penultimate episode of season two of The Gifted, in many ways they were just dealing with the aftermath of the prior “Mutant Massacre” episode in which the Purifiers wiped out dozens of Morlocks in a desperate battle that left Blink wounded and separated from the team. We saw that Lorna was ready to betray the Inner Circle as Reeva’s plans were revealed. Strucker patriarch, Reed Strucker, accidentally killed a Purifier as everyone was scrambling for an escape. Caitlin Strucker & daughter Lauren Strucker got holed up in an old brick building at just the wrong moment: Lauren’s powers were still suppressed from the “cure” that had been developed.

Jayce Turner, who was still grieving over the fact that he’d led men into a battle in which they slaughtered women, children, and non-combatants, encountered another shock – he saw security footage that confirmed Blink and Thunderbird were alive before the battle started. When Lorna discovered that Reeva hired the Purifiers to kill the Morlocks, Lorna was able to convince Andy to defect as well. But Andy was scared that his family would not accept him back after he’d done so much evil. But Reed confessed to Andy that he recently killed a man and put Andy slightly at ease. They all have demons, after all.

Andy & Lorna made it back to the rest of the team, and there was a touching reunion. Eclipse, Lorna, and their baby will be together if we get a season three. Yay! We learned that Reeva wasn’t that pissed that they lost Lorna and Andy, revealing she mostly wanted the “Inner Circle cred” their family history would have brought her. She was ready to kill them if she must.

We still don’t know where the hell Blink is. This show is not renewed, and I am given to understand that this episode was written as a tragic cliffhanger. I almost expect Thunderbird to die or maybe Lorna’s baby? There’s also a last-minute twist ending promised that may intro a new mutant or faction. I almost hope for some time-traveling mutants from Age of Apocalypse or some other classic X-Men storyline, orrrrrrr… Okay, oddly specific pitch, but how bout Clarice (Blink) dies but shows back up as her AoA leader of the Exiles version? I guess we’ll see tonight. If for some reason Fox axes this show, I’ll be pissed, because it’s been a pretty solid run and Matt Nix is a good storyteller.

On tonight’s episode, “oMens,” Reeva prepares to carry out her plan for the Inner Circle, but not everyone is on the same page; Reed struggles to manage his powers; Jace and the Purifiers are on the attack.

Check out the season (series?) finale tonight on FOX at 9/8c.

I’ll also be tuning in for another season finale that could actually turn out to be a series finale: Lethal Weapon.

Megan’s Choice

Lethal Weapon entered this season surrounded by controversy after Riggs left the show, but Cole has done a good job keeping things interesting. He has been a good partner to Murtaugh, except for the fact that trouble seems to follow Cole wherever he goes. That’s why things didn’t work out with Cole’s ex-wife, Natalie, because she couldn’t handle the chaos, especially with them having a daughter together. All of the chaos aside, there is still some serious love between Natalie and Cole, which is complicated because Natalie is engaged to be married very shortly. Hopefully we see some crazy wedding-stopping speech in the future.

On tonight’s season finale, “The Spy Who Loved Me,” when Cole is investigated by the FBI, Murtaugh is forced to question his loyalty to his own partner. Meanwhile, Cole works a case that puts Natalie’s fiancé, Andrew, into the crosshairs right before their wedding day.

Find out if Murtaugh has Cole’s back tonight on FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching The Rookie, NCIS, The Gifted, The Voice, NCIS: New Orleans, Roswell, New Mexico, FBI, and World of Dance.
