The majority of Sandstorm, including leader Shepherd, went down in last season’s finale. Top people from the government gathered in the Secret Service bunker, thinking it was the good guys, but it turned out the guy running the whole show was working for Shepherd. Weller worked with another guy to take the guy down and get back to FBI headquarters. Thankfully, the team was able to stop Shepherd’s ultimate plan to destroy the entire Eastern seaboard, including the White House, which was going to be holding a full cabinet meeting. Jane and Weller arrested her and took over the ambulance that held the nuclear material. After fighting Roman and zapping the GPS thing that was leading more nuclear material toward the White House and allowing Patterson to take control of it…the US was safe, Sandstorm was taken down, but Jane allowed Roman to escape because she couldn’t bring herself to shoot him. The team celebrated 24 hours later, although several of them were questioning whether or not they wanted to stay with the FBI. Then Jane showed up, and she and Weller…well, I love yous were finally exchanged on both sides and they officially became a couple.

Of course, then in true Blindspot fashion, we flash forwarded two years (although the episode description for tonight says 18 months…so…). Jane was climbing up some cliff and then talking with a monk, who told her it was time to go home. Then at her temporary home (a tent), SURPRISE! It was Weller…who was wearing a RING that Jane seemed shocked and happy to see. It seemed like a happy reunion, but we got no explanation for why they were apart and why he was wearing a ring, because he then informed her that Zapata, Reade, and Patterson had all been kidnapped. He had a small metal thing that, when both of them put their fingers on it, lit up with the image of a bird that corresponded with the tattoo on Jane’s neck. When they put the metal up next to the tattoo, every tattoo on her body lit up like they were under a black light. Then the episode faded to black.

What the heck? What happened in that two years (or 18 months…) after they took down Shepherd? Who has Zapata, Reade, & Patterson? And why the heck are Jane’s tattoos GLOWING?! I can’t wait to find out starting with tonight’s premiere!

On tonight’s episode, “Back to the Grind,” eighteen months after parting ways under mysterious circumstances, the FBI team is brought back together by a new crisis.

See if we get any answers tonight on NBC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing MacGyver & Blue Bloods.

The last new episode of Chicago PD was part of the #OneChicago crossover, where Olinsky’s daughter was one of the victims in the warehouse fire started by a guy who was angry at a girl who he felt ignored his attentions. He thought they had something special, but she didn’t really know him. He just friended her on social media. He was wackadoo, and lots of people were killed, including Olinsky’s daughter, who died from her injuries. It was a crazy intense night of episodes and really sad but a great crossover.

Chicago PD is my favorite of the #OneChicago shows, and I’m so glad it’s back tonight. As a Linstead (Lindsay/Halstead) shipper, I am a little nervous about the guest star who starts tonight for a small arc, but the producer’s said that she won’t be a romantic rival for Erin, so I’ll keep my hopes up that they don’t screw up my favorite couple! Also, we haven’t had a lot of time to focus on Adam being back yet, so it’ll be interesting to see how the story line with him and Burgess goes!

On tonight’s episode, “Remember the Devil,” after being tipped off about a woman running barefoot through the woods, Intelligence is led to a kidnapping victim locked up in a shipping container. The bizarre scenario leaves Voight questioning the legitimacy of the case and sends the team on a twisted trail to get to the bottom of it. Meanwhile, a former relationship of Halstead’s comes back into the picture, much to the surprise of Lindsay.

See how the team solves the case tonight on NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Blindspot, Chopped Junior, Cooks vs. Cons, Criminal Minds, Law & Order: SVU, Major Crimes, & Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders.

On last week’s Criminal Minds, bodies (well, torsos…) were being found without the heads, legs, and arms. It was a creepy case of an abusive husband turning into a serial killer, but the team did catch up to him – just in time, too, before he could kill his husband. And poor Reid… He has his mom at home with him, trying to take care of her, but it’s a big job. He finally found someone who could handle helping him while he was out of town for work, but he’s keeping her in the dark with the mysterious drugs he’s giving his mom. He finally admitted at the end of the episode last week that trying to take care of her at home may be too much for him to handle. So what are the drugs he didn’t tell the caregiver about? And is he really going to move his mom to a home? And given the description for tonight’s episode, what in the world happened between last week and this?! I’ve read several places that this episode changes Reid’s life in a drastic way. I don’t think the actor is going anywhere, unless it’s the biggest secret the show’s ever kept. So…

On tonight’s episode, “Spencer,” when a BAU member gets in trouble in Mexico, the team enlists the services of the International Response Team for their help. Alana De La Garza & Daniel Henney from Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders guest star.

Find out why Reid is in Mexico tonight on CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Blindspot, The Goldbergs, Hunted, Lethal Weapon, Cooks vs Cons, Law & Order: SVU, Modern Family, black-ish, Bakers vs Fakers, Chicago PD, Match Game, & Six.

Last week’s Lethal Weapon was all about the grass being greener on the other side, at least for Murtaugh. When he and Riggs were up against a Koreatown gang and a drug war, they had to work with a detective who knew more about that culture, and Murtaugh got along well with the guy, who was all about following the rules, calling/waiting for backup, etc. In the end, though, I think he realized working with Riggs has been good for him. The funniest part was when Riggs was drugged by the woman who turned out to be the killer. Riggs sober (well, at least not high on drugs…) is pretty amusing. But Riggs high on drugs? Hysterical. I loved him riding on top of the car (according to the MythBusters, that’s impossible. LOL) and saying hi to Roger, who went by going the other way. The saddest part of the episode was Trish trying to set up Riggs with a friend. I loved Riggs’s telling her that someday he’ll have to move on, but not yet.

On tonight’s episode, “Lawmen,” Murtaugh and Riggs are pitted against the LA Sheriff’s department when the killing of a Texas Ranger leads them to believe a possible misuse of power is at play. Just as the partners are sure they’ve found their culprit, the case becomes even more complicated when a dark secret is dug up from Captain Avery’s past. Malcolm-Jamal Warner (Major Crimes) and Scott William Winters (Law & Order: SVU) guest star.

To learn Captain Avery’s dark secret, tune in to FOX at 8/7c.

Tonight, the surreal comedy Man Seeking Woman returns for its third season on FXX. This highly-creative series follows the adventures of hopeless romantic Josh Greenberg (Jay Baruchel, How to Train Your Dragon, Undeclared) as he tries to find love again after being dumped by his longtime girlfriend. As the third season opens, Josh meets Lucy (Katie Findlay, How to Get Away with Murder), and while the pair immediately find love, Josh is not really a hit with Lucy’s roommates.

I had forgotten just how much fun this show was until I checked out tonight’s premiere. While this is the show’s third season, those who have never seen the series before can easily jump in and thoroughly enjoy tonight’s premiere. (Though I would highly recommend checking out the hilarious first two seasons.) The series is so cleverly written. I love the way that the writers depict these universally familiar aspects of relationships through seemingly ridiculous and surreal storylines. For example, tonight’s episode starts off as a timely parody of border security/illegal immigration as Lucy’s roommates try to keep Josh out of their apartment. Tonight’s premiere had me smiling throughout. Katie Findlay is an adorable and fun addition to the cast, and I look forward to seeing how Lucy and Josh’s relationship plays out over the upcoming episodes.

On tonight’s premiere, “Futon,” Josh and Lucy fall in love but struggle with the living arrangements.

See if Lucy and Josh can make things work tonight on FXX at 10:30/9:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Goldbergs, Speechless, Modern Family, black-ish, Match Game, Criminal Minds, Blindspot, Lethal Weapon, Frequency, and Incorporated.
