gotham54smallTonight, the first season of Gotham comes to a close. Last week, Gordon and Bullock continued their search for the psychopath known as the Ogre, who had kidnapped and chained up Barbara. During his search for Barbara, Gordon was forced to make a deal with the Penguin and agreed to owe him a favor. When Bullock and Gordon finally did track down the Ogre, Gordon took the kill shot. Meanwhile, Penguin set up an attack on Maroni, making it look like it came from Falcone, fanning the flames for a huge mob war; Kristen walked in on Ed Nygma while he was disposing of Doughtery’s chopped-up body — fortunately the head was not around or she would have realized it was her missing boyfriend; and Bruce learned the truth about Wayne Enterprises — that it was full of deceit and corruption…and that his father knew about it.

So how will this season come to an end? Who will fall victim to the full-scale mob war that’s about to break out? And who will rise to rule over what’s left afterwards? Is Gordon going to get back with Barbara? He still seemed to have some feelings for her last week — so much so that he made a deal with the Penguin. And speaking of that, will the Penguin call in his chip? Will Bruce figure out what his father was hiding, and will it help him clean up the company? I’m looking forward to an exciting finale that will likely leave us anxious for the second season!

On tonight’s episode, “All Happy Families Are Alike,” the Gotham City gang war reaches its boiling point with Fish Mooney battling Maroni and Penguin. In other events, Barbara and Leslie Thompkins are brought together; and Bruce searches Wayne Manor for any clues as to what his father might have left behind.

Catch the exciting season finale tonight on FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Castle, Gotham, The Following, Jane the Virgin, Bates Motel, The Returned, and Turn.

theflash324smallLast week’s episode of The Flash was amazing—and so eventful! Mark Mardon, the brother of the pilot episode’s Weather Wizard Clyde, returned to Central City, looking to get revenge on those responsible for his brother’s death. Meanwhile, Barry and Linda inadvertently went on an awkward double-date with Eddie and Iris—and there was a lot of flirting between Barry and Iris, which wasn’t lost on Eddie or Linda. Back at the lab, Cisco confronted Doctor Wells about his connection to the Reverse Flash, and in true supervillain fashion, he told Cisco EVERYTHING—that his real name is Eobard Thawne, that he is the Reverse Flash, and that he is from the future and had traveled back in time to try to kill Barry but accidentally murdered Barry’s mother instead. After his long speech, Wells killed Cisco. Elsewhere, Barry was running extremely fast to try to stop the tsunami created by Mark and inadvertently broke the space-time continuum and ended up in the past, reliving that same day.

When Cisco was killed in last week’s episode, I was surprised but only worried for a few seconds. At the beginning of the episode, when there was a scene with someone comically spilling a drink all over themselves, I suspected we might be getting a Groundhog Day-style episode, and that was a cue for us and Barry to remember. However, Barry doesn’t know the truth about Wells or what he’s about to do to Cisco—so will he change enough things in his do-over of the day to cause those events to never happen? Or is Cisco just predestined to confront Wells and die? Now that Barry has discovered that he can travel through time, what will he do with that power? And if Wells’s plan was to kill Barry, why is he keeping him around—what is his ultimate goal?

On tonight’s episode, “Rogue Time,” the Flash learns that Captain Cold and Heat Wave have returned to Central City, and that Snart has brought along his sister Lisa to help wreak havoc on the town.

Find out what happens in Central City tonight on The CW at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Fresh Off the Boat, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Forever, Undateable, One Big Happy, The Mindy Project, iZombie, Justified, Cougar Town, and Face Off.

empire318smallTonight, the first season of Fox’s odds-defying ratings juggernaut Empire comes to a close with a special 2-hour finale. Last week we saw more evidence of how Lucious’s image has always been the top priority in his life. When Andre was diagnosed with bipolar disease in college, his father’s solution was for him to just will it away and not tell anyone about his weakness.

Back in the present, Lucious tried to pay off Camilla to leave his much-younger-than-her son Hakeem, and when she refused, he had her escorted off the premises and let Hakeem believe she took his bribe. Meanwhile, Olivia returned with her abusive boyfriend Reg in tow, and when Jamal confronted him about the violence, Reg pulled a gun. During the chaos, Lucious revealed that Lola was actually HIS daughter and that he paid Olivia to marry Jamal. The standoff came to an end when Malcolm shot and killed Reg. Afterwards, the now-safe Olivia took Lola with her and left for good. And Lucious proposed to Cookie, who said no, realizing Lucious was just scared of ending up alone.

Cookie said no?! Lucious announcing he had an illegitimate child with his daughter-in-law didn’t win her over?! After all this time of wanting to get back together with Lucious, Cookie finally realized she can do better—and already seems to have some chemistry with Malcolm. Is this really the end of Cookie and Lucious, or is this back-and-forth going to go on forever? This show loves dropping huge bombshells at the end of each episode, so I can’t wait to see what they leave us with at the end of tonight’s season finale!

On tonight’s finale, “Die But Once/Who I Am,” Lucious has a secret that’s about to change everything as he and Jamal seem on their way to forming a music-centered relationship. Meanwhile, Hakeem decides to flirt with the enemy; at the same time, he’s trying to figure out what’s the best move for his career; and Cookie cooks up a plan to get herself back on top.

See how the season ends on tonight’s 2-hour season finale on FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Survivor, Arrow, Supernatural, Melissa & Joey, Baby Daddy, The Americans, Man Seeking Woman, Broadchurch, and Workaholics.

kotn2015smallTonight, the third season of King of the Nerds comes to an end and a new King (or Queen) will sit atop the Throne of Games. Last week, the six remaining nerds were put into alien cocoons and had to answer general nerd trivia questions and got shot in the face with “acid” when they got a question wrong. The game was a double-elimination, and the last nerd standing got immunity from the Nerd-Off. However, in a twist that wasn’t revealed until after-the-fact, one of the two contestants who eliminated from the trivia first would go home immediately. As a result, Amanda was sent home and Ben got the immunity—and the choice of one of the Nerd-Off contestants.

In the throne room, Ben announced that he would be sending Raychelle, and the others voted to send Lily. The two girls played a giant game of Pocket Nerds (aka Stratego), and it looked like Raychelle was going to win, until she accidentally moved the wrong piece. This left the door open for Lily to make a Hail Mary run for her opponent’s flag, causing Raychelle to be sent home.

So the final four are Ben, Jonathan, Kaitlin, and Lily. Out of that group, the only person I don’t want to win is Lily, and I would prefer that Jonathan or Kaitlin win over Ben. I think Jonathan has done a good job at plotting and planning his way to the end, and Kaitlin—who came off as obnoxious and arrogant in the premiere—has really grown on me. Overall, it’s been another really fun season, and it’s sad to see it come to an end, but I’m looking forward to seeing what lies in store for tonight’s final challenges.

On tonight’s episode, “The Nerdtastic Finale,” the winning nerd is crowned in the Season 3 finale, which comes complete with a witty monster and a gauntlet of geeky tests and schemes.

See who comes out on top tonight on TBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Amazing Race, Cristela, Glee, 12 Monkeys, and Helix.

hellskitchen33smallIt’s time for another season of Hell’s Kitchen, and even though this show is in its 14th season, I can’t get enough. I love cooking competition shows, but no matter how many new ones come out, this one is still at the top of my list because of the crazy antics that get brought out with all the chefs. The group of chefs this season appears to be quite the smorgasbord, but it is definitely going to be a hot season with drama, because this bunch looks feisty. I’m going to start a count of how many times someone messes up scallops in the season premiere.

On tonight’s episode, “18 Chefs Compete,” Chef Ramsay asks 18 new contestants to present their signature dishes in front of an audience, and the winning team earns a night with William Shatner; one team gets kicked out of the kitchen during the first dinner service.

To see how this group of 18 handles the heat in Ramsay’s kitchen, tune in to FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching The Voice, Fresh Off the Boat, Pretty Little Liars, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., The Mindy Project, Chopped, Chicago Fire, and Gangland Undercover.
