Tonight, the fourteenth season of Grey’s Anatomy comes to a close, as we say goodbye to at least two characters. Last week the episode started off on a happy note, with April sending out the invitations for Alex and Jo’s wedding. However, shortly afterwards, Matthew and April were involved in a car accident. Matthew showed up at the ER but didn’t know where April was. Owen headed out to search for Kepner and discovered her body unconscious and hypothermic in a ravine. It looked like this was the way that April was going to be written out of the show, but after three grueling hours, the doctors finally managed to revive her, and she appeared to be OK. Meanwhile, Arizona gave her notice to Bailey, noting that she would be moving to New York for the sake of her daughter, Sofia. Fortunately, Arizona’s former mentor, Dr. Herman, had returned to the hospital for a treatment, learned of this, and offered Arizona a job where she could work from New York.

It’s always disappointing to see main characters leave a long-running series, and I’ve really grown to enjoy April and Arizona. I’m really happy they didn’t end up killing off Kepner last week, though I’m curious to see how she will leave the series and how that affects the remaining characters. Will these be the only two exits from the series, or what other surprises await? Also, there have been quite a few weddings on this show over the years, and things never seem to go as planned, so will there be some hitch that prevents Alex and Jo from getting hitched?

On tonight’s finale, “All of Me,” the doctors attend Alex and Jo’s wedding, and things do not go as planned. Meanwhile, the stress from the past year has taken a toll on Bailey, and she will re-evaluate some of her decisions.

See if Alex and Jo actually get married and how April leaves the hospital tonight on ABC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Life in Pieces, Gotham, Arrow, and Imposters.

The big day is finally here on The Big Bang Theory, the one we’ve been waiting eight years for: Sheldon and Amy are finally getting married! Last week, Sheldon learned from his mom that she wouldn’t attend the wedding if he didn’t invite his brother, Georgie. Sheldon whined and complained but finally dragged Leonard to Texas with him to ask his brother in person since Georgie wouldn’t take his calls. Turned out Georgie (now George) is the tire king (or doctor…since that’s what his chain of stores is called) of the region, and the reason he refused to go to the wedding was that he felt he’d had to sacrifice and put up with too much when growing up, since their parents (and then their mother once their father passed away) focused so much on Sheldon, and Sheldon never appreciated it or thanked George even after all these years. Leonard and George bonded over some of the pains that come with being friends/family with Sheldon, and Leonard gave Sheldon some hard truths about what it was really like for the rest of his family growing up. Sheldon and George had some good bonding time and George agreed to come to the wedding. Jerry O’Connell was great at George, and the whole story line was sweet.

Elsewhere, Bernie and Howard’s kids got pink eye…and gave it to Howard…who ended up giving it to everyone but Sheldon & Leonard, who were out of town…and Penny, who somehow was able to escape it. Even Amy suffered, and being a week before the wedding, she was NOT happy about it. It was all gross yet very funny, especially since I had to deal with that ickiness a few times growing up! Luckily it turned out to be bacterial, which meant they could all get on antibiotics and get it taken care of in a few days. Knowing germaphobe Sheldon wouldn’t return home if he knew, she hid it from him when they talked via webcam and convinced him to stay in Texas for a few days longer. LOL

I’ve seen tonight’s episode, and it really was worth the long wait, in my opinion. There are great guest stars, lots of laughs, and some really, really sweet moments – one in particular between Sheldon and Amy, not counting their vows, which were amazing. I loved it!

On tonight’s season finale, “The Bow Tie Asymmetry,” when Amy’s parents and Sheldon’s family arrive for the wedding, everybody is focused on making sure all goes according to plan – everyone except the bride and groom. (I won’t list the new guest stars, in case you haven’t seen it yet, so you won’t be spoiled. But returning guests include Stuart, Kripke, Wil Wheaton, Bert, Denise, and Sheldon’s mother, sister, and brother, Mary, Missy, and George.)

Don’t miss the biggest event of the season tonight on CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Chicago Fire, Beat Bobby Flay, Impractical Jokers, & S.W.A.T.

Oh my word. Last week’s Chicago Fire was a mix of highs and lows — from Casey really stepping up to help an abused wife who ended up setting her house on fire after hitting her husband on the head with a baseball bat and Severide and Kidd finally stepping back over the line of friendship and having sex ON THE BAR (a bit unsanitary, no?)…to Crus hurting for money after he spent so much on getting the Slamigan up and running and Otis being severely (maybe permanently?!) injured while on a fire call when a guy’s ammunition started exploding and shot at Otis and Kidd. Thankfully she was only hit in her radio. Otis, though, was shot in the neck. He underwent surgery at the hospital, but the last we saw, it seems like maybe it left him with no feeling in his legs. Eek. That doesn’t bode well for his future as a fire fighter, does it?! It was truly an action-packed two-hour episode and was one of my favorites in a while for the series.

In sad news, the actress who played Boden’s assistant Connie, DuShon Monique Brown, died last Friday of a heart attack. She was always fun to watch on the show because she said so little but had a big impact on the characters — she could “say” a lot with little to no words. Obviously it’ll be a few episodes before they can do anything about it, but I have no idea how they’ll write her out of the series. Maybe she’ll move away to be closer to family. I can’t see them killing her off. That would be too sad. However they do it, she’ll be missed!

On tonight’s episode, “The One That Matters Most,” Herrmann, along with members of house 51, struggle to come to terms with an injury to one of their own, and then must deal with the new temporary replacement (guest star Damon Dayoub). Boden ponders some interesting news while Kidd has a hard time keeping a secret.

See how the group is dealing with Otis’s injuries tonight on NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Big Bang Theory, Station 19, Will & Grace, Beat Bobby Flay, Impractical Jokers, & S.W.A.T.

Tonight is the series premiere of Station 19, and I am very intrigued by this show. It’s centered around Andy Herrera (Jaina Lee Ortiz, Rosewood), who is the daughter of the head of her Seattle firehouse. Andy is extremely by the books and a fierce woman. We will also see the station’s newest member, Ben Warren (Jason George), who fans of Grey’s Anatomy will recognize as Bailey’s husband Ben, who has left the medical world to be a firefighter. The show also stars Miguel Sandoval (Medium), Grey Damon (Aquarius, Star-Crossed, The Nine Lives of Chloe King), Jay Hayden (The Catch, SEAL Team, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend), Alberto Frezza (Dead of Summer), Danielle Savre (Too Close to Home, Supernatural: Bloodlines), Okieriete Onaodowan, & Barrett Doss.

I’m interested to see how this show progresses, as it is a new member of the Shondra Rhimes universe — a very lucrative universe to belong to. Time will tell if people take to it as quickly as they did Grey’s.

On tonight’s 2-episode premiere, “Stuck/Invisible to Me,” when the team responds to an apartment fire, Captain Pruitt takes a hit, the future of the station’s leadership is in jeopardy, and firefighter Andy Herrera is forced to step up. Meanwhile, new recruit Ben Warren is trading in the scalpel for a fresh start as a firefighter, but it hasn’t been easy and he has a hard time realizing that emergencies in the field are vastly different than those at Grey Sloan Memorial. With the absence of Captain Pruitt, Andy and Jack try to navigate how to work together, and a car accident on a rural road puts both the victims and the crew’s lives at risk.

To check out this new drama, tune in to ABC at 9/8c, followed by the second new episode at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching Grey’s Anatomy, A.P. Bio, and Chicago Fire.
