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.

Last week’s Hawaii Five-0 premiere was a bit out there, even for me. I liked the introduction of new team member Tani Rey. She is definitely a female Steve McGarrett, in that she sometimes seems to act before she thinks. But she fit in well, as far as I could see. It’ll be interesting to learn more about her and her back story, including the brother we saw in one scene. I love the fact that Steve and Danny are actually going to open up a restaurant – although an Italian place in the middle of Chinatown is kinda funny. The case-of-the-week part was good, but I don’t know why Steve couldn’t life them all out on the straps he sent down, instead of lifting up the whole cabin with them inside. To me, that didn’t make any sense. LOL

Tonight we meet another new team member, Junior Reigns, played by Beulah Koale (who, according to Google, was born in New Zealand and is of Samoan descent, so at least he’s sort of like a native Hawaiian!).

On tonight’s episode, “Na la ‘ilio (Dog Days),” McGarrett and Five-0 work with an injured police dog who is the only witness to an ambushed drug bust. Also, McGarrett is visited by Junior Reigns, a former SEAL, who is looking to join the task force.

See how Junior joins the team tonight on CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Hell’s Kitchen, MacGyver, & Blue Bloods.

It’s going to be a big season of change on Hawaii Five-0. Last season ended with the team shutting down as much of the human trafficking ring and rescuing as many young girls as they could, but Kono couldn’t leave it alone. It hit her hard, and she decided she was going to go to the mainland and see if she could take out some more of the traffickers and rescue more of the kidnapped girls. Also, Chin Ho was offered a job by Federal Prosecutor Robert Coughlin (who originally went after Five-0 using Abby as his inside man): to lead his own Five-0-type team in San Francisco, where Abby used to live. Over the summer, we learned that both Daniel Dae Kim and Grace Park had been let go from the show, so we know that Kono is still off trying to shut down the traffickers and Chin accepted the job, taking him, Abby, and Sarah to San Francisco. As much as I hate to see them go (and I do TRULY hate to see them go, both the actors & the characters), this is much better than killing them off or putting them in WitSec (looking at you, Criminal Minds!).

The show was quick to fill their spots. First, Kono’s husband, Adam, will stick around, as Ian Anthony Dale has been upped to a series regular. Despite his past and family history, Steve will recruit him to help with a specific case later in the season, and I believe he stays. Meaghan Rath (Being Human) joins the cast in the premiere as a lifeguard who was kicked out of the police academy, despite being a strong contender. Think of her as the female Steve McGarrett — not afraid to bend or even break the rules to get done what needs to be done if it’s something that is right. And finally, relative newcomer Beulah Koale will join as a Navy SEAL who just returned (like, DAYS before) from serving and asks McGarett for a job. It’ll be interesting to see how Steve, Danny, and the others handle the newbies and having Adam around more! (Especially how Steve & Danny handle having a female Steve there. LOL)

On tonight’s episode, “’A’ole e ‘olelo mai ana ke ahi ua ana ia (Fire Will Never Say That It Has Had Enough),” McGarrett and Danny recruit Tani Rey to join the task force when diabolical hacker Aaron Wright (guest star Joey Lawrence) releases a dangerous arsonist from prison. Also, Randy Couture and Andrew Lawrence also return as guest stars.

Don’t miss the exciting premiere tonight on CBS at 9/8c.

Tonight is the season finale of Blue Bloods, and I am both excited and sad. It has been a great season overall, but I was really hoping we would have seen more relationship growth between Jamie and Eddie by now. Hopefully the writers get their game together next season, because my shipper dreams are dying.

On last week’s episode, Erin discovered someone from her office stole evidence for her case and set out to prove it. Eventually, she did get Gary to admit he did it, and her case was saved. Elsewhere, Danny had to learn to play well with two Russian officers when they fell into a case together involving a KGB agent who opened up fire in a restaurant after a woman refused to go back to Russia with him. They solved the case, and Danny was beyond ready to send those Russian officers back before they drove him even crazier.

On tonight’s episode, “The Thin Blue Line,” when Danny intercepts a shipment of several million dollars that was heading to a drug cartel in Mexico, he becomes a target when they come back for revenge. Also, Jamie works independently to track down a serial killer who preys on the elderly, and Mayor Poole confides in Frank that he plans to retire.

To see how Jamie does solo, tune in to CBS 10/9c.

Tonight, after six exciting seasons, NBC’s Grimm finally comes to an end. Last week, Nick and Eve were inside the mirror trying to launch an attack on the Zerstorer, but they quickly realized they were no match for this creature and his powerful staff. Diana managed to re-open the portal and rescue Nick and Eve, but somehow the trip caused Eve to no longer be a Hexenbiest. Meanwhile, Diana sensed something was wrong and realized that the Zerstorer was also able to escape back into the real world and was now coming for her. As Rosalee and Adalind cast a spell to conceal Diana from the beast, the others, including a newly returned Trubel, looked for a way to stop the Zerstorer. However, when Hank and Wu headed to the police station, they found themselves face-to-face with the beast, who seemingly stabbed them both to death as Nick watched in horror.

Is this truly the end of Hank and Wu? I mean, I know this is the end of the show, but they can’t just die like that, right? There’s got to be some way to bring them back! How will Nick and the others stop the Zerstorer? Will anyone else die in the process? And will we finally see Eve turn back into the old Juliette just in time to give her and Nick a happy ending? I’m looking forward to seeing how it all plays out and how the series comes to close tonight.

On tonight’s finale, “The End,” Nick must look to his ancestors for strength to save the world from a terrifying end as he faces off against a seemingly unbeatable foe. At the Spice Shop, Monroe, Rosalee, and Eve search for answers and stumble upon a rare potion that may help the fight. Elsewhere, Capt. Renard and Adalind try to keep Diana and baby Kelly safe as the threat has its eyes set on the children.

See how our favorite Portland gang handles the beast and who lives and dies tonight on NBC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Sleepy Hollow & Tangled: The Series.
