svu520smallTonight is the season finale of Law & Order: SVU, and it takes us back to previous episode(s) this season, which I kind of love. In one episode, police found children who’d been “adopted” (illegally) for child pornography. Olivia fell hard for a baby boy she found. The boy’s mother was a drug addict and prostitute who was then killed in a later episode. Olivia kept in contact with Noah and eventually fostered him and has now adopted him — even though she found out just beforehand that Noah’s father was the man behind a prostitution and sex trafficking ring. She asked Barba (who is one of my favorite characters on the show) if that knowledge had to come out at the time, and he said it had no bearing on the case she was talking about, so no. Unfortunately, it comes out tonight in what should be an emotional season finale.

On tonight’s episode, “Surrendering Noah,” Sgt. Benson and ADA Barba take Johnny D (guest star Charles Halford) to trial for sex trafficking, rape, assault, and kidnapping. But when Baby Noah’s adoption becomes entangled in the case, Benson fears for Noah’s future and his safety. In an intense courtroom showdown, the SVU will face a threat that could change the squad forever.

See what happens in court tonight on NBC at 9/8c.

theflash519smallTonight is the exciting first season finale of The Flash. Last week, the gang discovered that Wells had plans to reactivate the particle accelerator, which would kill all of the meta-humans they had locked up in S.T.A.R. Labs. Barry wanted to transport the felons to Olliver’s island, where they could be safely contained. He reached out to Captain Cold, who agreed to help in exchange for wiping out any paper trail of his existence and criminal record. However, Barry soon realized that he had been double-crossed, and the prisoners escaped.

After narrowly escaping the attack from Cold’s rogues, Barry went to meet Wells for a big showdown, where he was joined by Arrow and Firestorm. The epic battle ended when Arrow disabled Wells’s powers using a nanite-filled arrow. Meanwhile, there was a big explosion at Ray’s company as he was inside working on some new changes for his suit; and Eddie told Iris about the headline from the future that said she and Barry would be married.

How are they going to top such an exciting penultimate episode with tonight’s season finale? Will Barry and his team be able to keep Wells locked up in S.T.A.R. Labs, or will Wells find some way to escape? Will Barry be able to clear his father’s name? And what new villain or threat will step in to take Wells’s place?

On tonight’s episode, “Fast Enough,” Wells presents Barry with a life-changing choice. Meanwhile, Dr. Martin Stein and Ronnie Raymond return to help the S.T.A.R. Labs team for the final fight.

To see the exciting drama tonight, tune in to The CW at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording iZombie, Younger, and Your Family or Mine.

thefollowing518smallTonight, after three seasons, The Following finally comes to an end with a special 2-hour series finale. Last week, it wasn’t really a good week for Mike. First he was kidnapped by Tom, who was going to trade him to Mark & Daisy in exchange for evidence they had against him. However, Mark & Daisy didn’t honor their deal and killed Tom. They were just about to kill Mark when Theo showed up and took him to use as bait to get his sister back from Ryan.

Things went sour at the meeting, and Theo and Penny made a run for it, but Ryan shot and killed Penny. Afterwards, Theo and Daisy managed to drive away. Meanwhile, Mike and Max were in the parking garage, and Mike told Max he loved her. Mark showed up and stabbed Mike repeatedly in the back before Max could pull out her gun and shot Mark in the head.

Theo is going to be focused on getting revenge on Ryan for the death of his sister. How will this final showdown play out? Did the series creators suspect this would be there final season? Will they kill off Mike, or will he and Max have a future together? Will we get a satisfying conclusion for Ryan Hardy? I’m looking forward to seeing how it all ends tonight!

On tonight’s episode, “Dead or Alive / The Reckoning,” as the FBI hunt for Theo intensifies and some of their own are attacked, suspicions mount, alliances crumble, and no one appears safe.

Catch the 2-hour series finale tonight on FOX at 8/7c.

brooklyn99517smallLast week’s Brooklyn Nine-Nine was a lot of fun. I love seeing Jake work closely with Holt. And of course, throw Charles into the mix, and his bromance with Jake is always funny. Jake was positive from the beginning that the man’s murder had to do with the 21-million that had been stolen years before. In the end, he had the wrong bad guy pegged as the killer, but the motive was correct, and they caught the killer and recovered the money. Of course, that was what Madeline Wuntch wanted, as it gave her the excuse to “promote” Holt to head of the Public Relations Department — perfect for someone with Captain Holt’s effusive personality. *snort* In the B story, Rosa, Amy, & Gina helped Terry when a class from the magnet school Terry was trying to get his twins into came and visited the precinct. Although it didn’t go as smoothly as they would’ve liked, in the end, the kids learned a lot and Terry’s twins got off the wait list for the magnet school preschool.

Questions going into tonight’s season finale: Will we get any progress on the Jake/Amy front? Will Captain Holt’s “promotion” stick? I’ve seen tonight’s episode, and I could answer those for you, but I won’t. 😉 I will say it’s another great ep, so don’t miss it!

On tonight’s episode, “Johnny and Dora,” Jake and Amy go undercover to catch Brooklyn’s most notorious identity thief, and the case brings them closer together — very close. Meanwhile, the entire precinct is caught off-guard when one of their own says goodbye to the Nine-Nine. Kyra Sedgwick & Nick Cannon guest star.

To see what happens with Jake & Amy as well as who says goodbye, tune in to FOX at 8:30/7:30c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Guy’s Grocery Games, Spring Baking Championship, & Cutthroat Kitchen.

grimm515smallTonight, the fourth season of Grimm comes to a close, but fear not, there will be another spooky season coming in the fall. In the last few episodes, Juliette fully gave in to her evil Hexenbiest side. First she tried to turn Nick’s gun on Monroe, who managed to just narrowly avoid getting shot. And later, Juliette sent a fake distress message to Nick’s mother to lure her back in town with Adalind’s child. Once the trap was sprung, some men grabbed and killed Nick’s mother, leaving her head in a box, and took the child for the Royals. Meanwhile, the rest of the gang discovered that Renard was being possessed by Jack the Ripper, who had hitched a ride when he was being resurrected. However, they managed to kill the unwanted passenger without harming Renard. And Trubel made a surprise return to town at Monroe’s request.

Juliette is almost at the point of no redemption to me — I know she can’t control her actions, but she has become pure evil! I really hope they find a way to suppress/eliminate her Hexenbiest, but I suspect that may have to wait until next season. Will Nick (rightly) blame what happened to his mother on Juliette? How did that child get so big so fast, and will we see the birth of Adalind’s latest baby tonight? Why has Trubel returned to town, and is she back for good? It should be one exciting season finale tonight!

On tonight’s episode, “Cry Havoc,” Trubel helps Nick, who is hell-bent on getting revenge on the Royals after making a horrifying discovery in the Season 4 finale; at the same time, Juliette’s alliance continues to lead her down a dark path.

See if Nick gets revenge and if Juliette gets any less evil tonight on NBC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Amazing Race and Childrens Hospital.
