Last week’s FBI hit way too close to home for Maggie in a couple of different ways. First up was the victim of the case-of-the-week, another FBI agent who was also married to an FBI agent. Maggie had been at Quantico with the victim’s wife, so she was friends with the couple. So his murder hit her hard, and she knew how his widow was feeling, since her husband had also been killed. But during the case, in which they figured out the lawyer killed him and a gang member and caught the gang leader who in turn killed the lawyer, they also figured out that the victim had been cheating on his wife. Only, when Maggie finally told her at the end, it turned out she already knew. That’s when Maggie learned from Kristen that Maggie’s husband had been exchanging late-night phone calls with a woman before his death. Kristen couldn’t tell her if those calls were business or personal, but we know that Kristen told OA that there didn’t seem to be any business reason for him to have called her. Right at the end, we saw Maggie go to the woman’s work and ask to see her. What we don’t know is what Maggie learned. I don’t know if we’ll find that out in tonight’s season finale or if we’ll just be left to speculate. Given the episode description, I think we’ll find out… Either way, it’s been a fun first season, and I can’t wait for season two already.

On tonight’s episode, “Closure,” a woman with information about the death of Maggie’s husband is abducted leading the team to uncover a criminal operation larger than anyone imagined. Also, Dana puts her career in jeopardy by standing by and allowing Maggie to work on the case, which has such a personal connection to her.

Don’t miss the chance to get more answers to Maggie’s husband’s death tonight on CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing American Housewife, MasterChef Junior, NCIS, Chopped, & NCIS: New Orleans.

Through all of season five of CW’s The Flash, there have been two ladies from the future that have dominated the story: Nora West-Allen, Flash’s daughter, and Cicada II, who spent the first half of the season as a little girl in a coma. Gracie, or Cicada II, then returned from the future as a badass who killed her uncle for his meta weapon, the power-stealing dagger. Another prevailing feeling throughout this year’s arc has been Cicada is sort of a second-rate villain. Is this really our Big Bad? Well, last week we finally got to see the reveal that has long been foreshadowed: Reverse-Flash is the real Big Bad, and he was just setting up Cicada for the fall.

Sherloque had gone to save the love of his interdimensional life, Renee Adler, when Cicada showed up. There was a brief battle, but she was only there to steal a piece of technology that would amplify her ability to kill metahumans en masse. Nora came up with a way to trace Cicada’s location via their telepathic link. There was a showdown at the police station, but Team Flash defeated her and was about to zap the troublesome dagger to a parallel earth that was a nuclear wasteland, when Ralph realized that Reverse Flash set them up. Reverse Flash set this alllllll up. It was very much a cliffhanger ending, but one thing was clear: the Big Bad was definitely in fact the Reverse Flash, not this hissy brat Cicada II.

With all signs indicating that Barry will die next year in the Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover, we are approaching an interesting new singularity in the DC Universe on the small screen. In The Flash, they have already read reports from the future that Reverse Flash will lead a horde of demonic beings in the Crisis event. Over on Supergirl last week, we saw Brainiac has transmuted to his evil version, which should be relevant to that story. While they will probably not cover the Crisis story verbatim, they are doing a good job of setting it up. There lies beneath all this the chance that DCU may find a way to become tangent to the Arrowverse, which is exactly what Crisis was about: condensing DC heroes down into a more streamlined shared universe. One can only hope at this point!

On tonight’s episode, “Legacy,” Barry faces off with his oldest, and most formidable nemesis, Reverse Flash.

See who comes out on top between Barry and Reverse Flash tonight on The CW at 8/7c.

As the seasons start to wrap up, this promising finale is the only show I am watching tonight. But for cereal speaking of DCU, if you still haven’t found a way to watch Doom Patrol, you are losing at life right now. #justsaying

New Amsterdam has been revving the emotion up every week leading up to tonight’s season finale, and I am getting ready to sob. Last week I cried watching Iggy second-guess the kind of therapist he has become because of a social worker who said he was too close to his patients. He is an amazing therapist who gives everything to his patients, and I would hate to see him changing because of this one moment. I also cried last week when Max hit rock bottom and Sharpe did what I’ve been waiting for. She told him she had his back and would be his doctor again. Sharpe told him to go home to rest, and she was going to save his life. I love their friendship, and I have hope she is going to help him get better. Unfortunately, the episode ended with Max answering the door to his apartment covered in blood and in shock…so I’m guessing Georgia having an emergency with her pregnancy.

On tonight’s episode, “Luna,” Sharpe works on a creative way to help Max and Kapoor gets surprising news. Meanwhile, Reynolds takes a big step in his relationship with Evie as one of the doctors makes a life-altering decision.

Have your tissues ready and see the season one finale when you tune in to NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching FBI, NCIS, NCIS: New Orleans, The Flash, The Village, MasterChef Junior, Bless This Mess, The Voice, The 100, and Bite Club.
