If We Controlled Your Remote… 5/21/19

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!

Last week’s NCIS focused on two main story lines. First, the case, in which a homeless couple (the man in army fatigues) were shocked when a body fell off the overpass right near their tent and landed on a fence pike. Ouch. Turned out the victim was one of a team of five who had taken down a major terrorist a few years before, and while two of them died during the operation, the other three ended up stealing about three million dollars from the terrorist. Our guys thought they were dealing with the victim’s wife, but she turned out to be an imposter – the foreign former girlfriend of one of the other men – who was in the victim’s house trying to find the brooch the soldiers had bought overseas before coming home (worth $2.8 million!). In the end, of course, they got the killer woman before she could leave the country.

But the other story line was Gibbs, who seemed distracted right from the start and who actually left a crime scene in the middle of the investigation. He called Grace (the psychiatrist, played by the fantastic Laura San Giacomo, who needs her own spin-off of this show!), and they met at a bar. He told her about killing the man who’d killed his family, about telling his team about it the week before, and finally told her he wanted her to drive him to the police station to turn himself in. He was concerned about what his team would think of him now – and honestly, I was a bit irritated with the way McGee and Bishop acted to him, which sort of confirmed his worries. And although Grace convinced him not to turn himself in, she also brought up the subject about his retiring, which he quickly shot down. So I guess we’ll see in tonight’s finale if McGee and Bishop stop looking at him like they don’t know who he is anymore and realize nothing has changed. Of course, from the description and title of tonight’s episode, it’s still going to be part of the central story line!

On tonight’s episode, “Daughters,” former FBI Agent Tobias Fornell pleads with Gibbs to do whatever is necessary to take down drug dealers and suppliers in the area after his daughter, Emily Fornell, is hospitalized from an opiate overdose. Gibbs is haunted by the personal aspects of the case and his history with vigilante justice.

Find out if Fornell loses his daughter and how Gibbs & his team handle his past tonight on CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing American Housewife, MasterChef Junior, Blood & Treasure, & Chopped.

I am beyond emotionally invested in The Village, and the last episode left me in tears. Katie and Liam were incredibly adorable at birthing class, but he was even more adorable when he told her he loved her – a moment that was short lived because Katie announced something was wrong with the baby. I’m not sure where all of this baby stuff is going and if Katie is going to go through with the adoption even if it’s a closed adoption, but I hope they keep Liam around regardless. Elsewhere, Ava is on the run, which I’m very upset about because everyone has done so much to help her but she just ran instead. I understand why she did, but I’m also mad for her friends, who gave so much for her. Hopefully everything can work out in the end, but I’m not holding my breath this time.

On tonight’s episode, “I Have Got You,” an unexpected event brings Katie, Sarah, and Nick back into each other’s orbits. Patricia deals with her diagnosis, which leads to an unexpected chance at re-connection for Ron. Enzo enlists Gabe to pull off a grand gesture. Ben faces his future and his past.

To find out what happens with Katie and the baby, tune in to NBC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching The Voice, NCIS, Blood & Treasure, Chopped, Mental Samurai, MasterChef Junior, and Bless This Mess.
