Last week’s episode of Grey’s Anatomy was explosive…literally. The doctors were working on two people whose car had been driven off a cliff. As Stephanie Edwards tended to the male, Keith, the female regained consciousness and told the doctors that a man had kidnapped her at knife-point and planned to rape her. Bailey sounded the alarm and initiated a lockdown, but Keith held his knife to Edwards’s neck and demanded she help him escape. The pair ended up locked in a corridor along with a young girl, with sealed security doors preventing them from leaving. While Keith was distracted trying to find a way out, Edwards set him on fire. After struggling, he collapsed by a large tank of flammable liquid. Edwards ran to move the body, but there was a huge explosion. Meanwhile, Owen’s sister was found alive in Germany and was going to be transferred to Grey Sloan once she made it stateside. And Alex Karev managed to track down Jo’s abusive husband and imagined various scenarios playing out exacting his revenge, but all of them ended badly for him, and he ultimately did nothing to the man.

Did Edwards survive? Who was harmed and/or killed in that massive explosion? This seems like the way you would end a season, but we still have one more episode, so can we expect to be left with an even bigger shocker tonight? Will we meet some of the firefighters from the newly announced Grey’s spin-off series as they deal with the explosion?

On tonight’s season finale, “Ring of Fire,” the doctors’ lives are at risk after a dangerous patient escapes the hospital room. Meanwhile, Alex makes a hard choice in his relationship with Jo; and Meredith has some big news for Nathan, bringing things to a turning point.

See how the season ends tonight on ABC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Amazing Race, The Blacklist, MasterChef: Junior.

Tonight, ABC’s Wednesday comedies have their season finales, and for two of tonight’s shows, that means high school graduations. On The Goldbergs, it’s Erica who’s graduating, and on Modern Family, both Manny and Luke will be finishing up their high school experiences. Both of these series have already been picked up for next season (Modern Family for two more seasons!). I can’t imagine these shows without Erica, Luke, or Manny, but I’m sure the writers will find some way to ensure that these characters’ post-graduation activities cause them to remain close to home. I always enjoy these family comedy season finales, as there’s usually some sort of big family event tied into them. However, I will really miss these shows over the summer!

On tonight’s The Goldbergs finale, “Graduation Day,” graduation day is quickly approaching, and Erica cannot wait to get out of the house, until it dawns on her how much Beverly’s love means to her. Meanwhile, Barry’s plans for himself and Lainey turn to dust; and Dana makes a surprise visit just as Adam and Jackie officially become a couple.

Later, on tonight’s Modern Family finale, “The Graduates,” Javier shows up for Manny’s high-school graduation and takes him out for a wild night of celebration, but Jay must step in to pick up the pieces. Meanwhile, the rest of the Pritchett clan get ready for Luke and Manny’s big day.

To check out the graduations, tune in to ABC at 8/7c & 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Speechless, Downward Dog, Designated Survivor, Survivor, The 100, Fargo, and Archer.

Tonight, the second season of black-ish comes to an end. Last week Dre had an emotional time dropping Zoey off at college for her two-day pre-college orientation, and what followed was a backdoor pilot for a fun potential spin-off series. Minutes after she arrived, Zoey met and befriended Miriam, the only other seemingly sane person there. She also discovered that Charlie was moonlighting as an adjunct marketing professor at the college. As she and Miriam explored the campus, Zoey met and fell in love with Aaron, a Black Student Union representative who was fighting to protect the all-black dorm from being shut down by the school’s administrators. Zoey learned that due to Dre’s obsession with the McRib, she did not have any housing for the upcoming semester, but her speech to the administrators about keeping the segregated dorms earned her the position of cultural liaison to the administer’s office, which came with housing.

I really enjoyed last week’s backdoor pilot, and I would totally watch that series. It will be interesting to see if ABC announces it as part of their new lineup at next week’s Upfronts. The potential series has a similar feeling to the original, with Zoey doing the narration like Dre does, and her position at the school is not unlike her father’s role at his work. Tonight we return to the rest of the family for the show’s season finale. What adventures await the Johnsons, and is tonight the night the latest addition to the family arrives?

On tonight’s finale, “Sprinkles,” Dre throws Bow’s baby shower and wants it to be unforgettable, but his plans are put on hold when Bow stops by the OB/GYN with a headache and discovers she is having complications.

See if everything works out okay for Bow and the baby tonight on ABC at 9:31/8:31c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Goldbergs, Speechless, Modern Family, Designated Survivor, Survivor, Criminal Minds, Arrow, The 100, Fargo, and Archer.

Last week was a huge turning point in Reid’s predicament on Criminal Minds. He had a visitor and was shocked to see his mother there for the first time since he was put in prison. She was scared for him but he calmed her down, only to tell him that she’d fired her previous caretaker and she really liked the new one. Only…when the young woman came to pick her up, Reid recognized her. Not only was she a crazy girl in a previous case the BAU worked, where she urged her father to kill a guy, but…she was the woman in the hotel room down in Mexico. SHE was the one who killed the doctor, gassed Reid, and then told him it was time to leave and to follow her. Reid figured out he knew her from the previous case, but she said she didn’t know what he was talking about. It was only after she’d basically dragged his mother away that he realized she was the one in Mexico. By then, it was too late and they were gone.

And of course, there was still the weekly case, which was really kind of heartbreaking last week… A former colleague & friend of Walker’s was taken to the hospital after he suffered what they believed to be a heart attack. But they quickly figured out that in actuality, he’d been poisoned with a lethal dose of radiation. Several more victims followed, all of whom worked for the government in some capacity, including the killer’s husband, whom she killed by poisoning his lunch, rather than using a needle like she’d done for the others. The team had her surrounded, but she grabbed a hostage, and no one had a shot until Rossi came up behind her. He was able to take her down before she could stab her hostage with the needle she was holding. As for Walker’s friend, he was alone, since he and his wife had divorced and their son sided with her. Originally he didn’t want Walker to call his ex-wife or his son, since he didn’t want to burden them, but as his death loomed close, he told Walker he wished he’d been able to see his son one last time. Walker promised to make it happen – and he did. He sent JJ and Luke to pick the son up from college. At first he balked, saying he wanted nothing to do with his father, but then the scene changed to show him arriving at the hospital, obviously upset. So there was a reunion, which was both touching and sad.

The young woman who killed the doctor and helped set up Reid can’t be working alone – not after gassing him like Scratch has done with his victims. But will they be able to find Diana in time?? Tonight is the next-to-last episode of the season, so it’s all got to come to a head this week and next. I can’t wait to see all the action tonight!

On tonight’s episode, “Green Light,” when Reid fears his mother has been abducted, he asks the BAU to investigate while he’s stuck in prison.

Find out what the team learns tonight on CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Blindspot, The Goldbergs, Cooks vs Cons, Law & Order: SVU, Modern Family, Chicago PD, & Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders.

Last week, we met Dr. Halstead’s father on Chicago Med, when Will’s brother Jay (from Chicago PD) called and told him his father was having some trouble. He took Dr. Rhodes with him and they convinced the man to go to the hospital. Turned out he had some heart problems that were getting worse. Will’s dad was a gruff, almost mean guy, but in the end, after he had surgery to fix his heart problems, he and Will shared a touching moment. It was really sweet. Dr. Rhodes also had to deal with the worsening problems of his girlfriend, Robin…who is Dr. Charles’s daughter. She was hearing things (specifically rats in the walls). Dr. Charles tried to ask how she was doing, but she didn’t want him “shrinking” her. In the end, they convinced her there’s something wrong, and that story carries over into tonight.

The saddest story line from last week, though, had to be the teenage boy who came into the ER after being beaten up at school. Turned out he was having trouble controlling his sexual urges. At school, he’d been found peeping into the girls’ locker room, and the boys who found him beat him up. But he begged Dr. Choi to castrate him because he couldn’t control himself, and he was afraid it would get worse and he’d do something really bad. Dr. Choi agreed to talk to his parents (who were SUPER religious) about chemical castration, which isn’t permanent, but his parents said no way. Unfortunately, the boy was later caught in a sleeping female patient’s room. He tried to tell Dr. Choi she looked cold and he was covering her up, when in reality he was uncovering her. He ran into the bathroom after grabbing some scissors and proceeded to harm himself, trying to give himself a true, physical castration (or something). It was really a horrible, sad story.

On tonight’s episode, “Deliver Us,” Dr. Rhodes fights to save a mother who’s desperate to help her daughter beat cancer. Dr. Charles asks Sarah to conduct his daughter Robin’s psych evaluation but has difficulty staying out of the case. When Will and Dr. Manning spend more time together at work, Nina goes to extreme measures to get Will’s attention. Meanwhile, Dr. Choi puts pressure on Noah when a residency spot becomes available.

See if Sarah can help Robin tonight on NBC at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Big Bang Theory, MasterChef: Junior, The Great Indoors, Farmers’ Market Flip, & Impractical Jokers.
