Tonight, after nine seasons, it’s finally time to say goodbye to the Hecks as ABC airs a special one-hour series finale of The Middle. Last week Frankie discovered that Axl had interviewed for a job in Denver. She was worried about having her firstborn leave the nest and attempted to sway Axl from taking the job, including trying to recruit Axl’s girlfriend to give him an ultimatum to stay. Meanwhile, Sue was also sad to say her own goodbye. Sean was leaving for Ghana, and she never told him how she really felt about him. Sue tried to stop by his home, but he wasn’t there, so she stuffed the snow globe into his packed bag, along with a note.

Tonight, the series comes to an end, and as the Hecks says goodbye to Axl, the viewers say goodbye to the whole family, who have been a fun part of our lives for the past nine years. Tonight’s series finale is a perfect hour of television, keeping the episode primarily dialogue-driven and all about the family. The characters have lots of heartfelt moments with one another, while also making us laugh. The episode is also filled with callbacks to lots of the fun things that have happened on the series over the years and includes some fun guest appearances that longtime fans will appreciate. Much of the episode revolves around a family car trip, and while we’ve seen many of these over the course of the series, this may very well be the funniest. I am really going to miss this show in the fall!

How will the rest of the family react to the news that Axl is leaving? And will Sue ever get a chance to profess her love to Sean? Don’t miss tonight’s one-hour series finale and your chance to say goodbye to the Hecks!

On tonight’s finale, “A Heck of a Ride,” a Heck leaves the nest as the family takes a road trip to Denver, where Axl will start his new job – and new life away from home.

Say goodbye to a heck of a family (see what I did there?) tonight on ABC at 8:30/7:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Flash, The 100, Legion, and Chrisley Knows Best.

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.

Chicago Fire has been bringing us a lot of strong episodes lately that also include a lot of relationship growth for a few couples. Last episode, Kidd decided she needed to move out from Severide’s place so that they can date and not risk rushing things, because she wants it to go well. At first Severide didn’t seem to want to support the idea but in the end, he said he wanted to be wherever she was and supported her choice. I adore these two together and think if they can keep it up, they’ll be another epic television couples for the history books.

On tonight’s episode, “The Strongest Amongst Us,” after saving a girl from a car accident, Chief Boden and Lt. Severide are taken aback when they receive a surprise package. Brett struggles to keep quiet about Cruz reacquainting with his now-married high school sweetheart, and Otis tackles his next challenge. A crisis brings Bria back into Dawson’s life.

To find out what trouble Bria is in now, tune in to NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching Station 19, Grey’s Anatomy, The Big Bang Theory, Young Sheldon, and S.W.A.T.

Tonight, The 100 finally returns for its fifth season on The CW. When we last left off, everyone was trying to escape the deadly radiation that was rapidly approaching. The lucky 1200 people who had been selected for the bunker were locked away, with Octavia inside and in charge. The remaining folks only had 90 minutes to escape and were desperately trying enact their plan to head back up to the Ark ring. However, in their haste to get things done quickly, the communications system went down, which meant that someone was going to have to activate the power on the Ark ring manually. Clarke volunteered, but when she got to the satellite station, the situation was worse than expected. She knew she wouldn’t get back to the ship in time and told the others to launch without her. They reluctantly did this but still weren’t out of the woods. They were rapidly running out of air and needed to dock the ship and get the oxygen scrubber connected to the Ark ring ASAP, which Bellamy managed to do in the nick of time. Meanwhile, Clarke was left on Earth, unprotected from the radiation but with the glimmer of hope that she would be immune.

The finale then cut to 6 years and 7 days later. Clarke is alive and well, living on a small, green plot of land along with a little girl named Madi. Every day Clarke tries to contact Bellamy and the others on the radio but has never made contact with either those on the Ark or those in the bunker. When she hears a loud noise overhead, she assumes it’s the others finally returning. However, she’s shocked and dismayed to discover a giant prison transport ship, with the name Eligius Corporation stamped on the side, landing nearby.

Who is this little girl Clarke is living with, and how did they survive the past 6 years? What is the Eligius Corporation, where did this ship come from, why are they here, and will those aboard pose a threat to Clarke? And when are the folks on the Ark ring and/or in the bunker going to make their way back to land? There are so many questions and so many opportunities for interesting stories. I look forward to seeing what the fifth season brings!

On tonight’s season premiere, “Eden,” Clarke struggles to survive on a desolate, scorched earth. Meanwhile, her friends in space come across a long-awaited beacon of hope.

Catch up with everyone tonight on The CW at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Middle, black-ish, For the People, Rise, LA to Vegas, New Girl, The Flash, Legion, and The Last O.G.

Last week’s psych case on Chicago Med was heartbreaking. A father brought his (adult) daughter in, claiming he’d found her tied to the bed in his ex-wife’s house. When the mother came rushing in, she explained her daughter was possessed and she was trying to get an exorcism done to her. Of course, in the end Dr. Charles figured out that the young woman had basically just had a psychotic break of sorts after reconnecting with her father after a long time apart…because the father had sexually abused her as a little girl. It was heartbreaking. (And that was just the first father/daughter story of the night. The second was Reese’s father basically “breaking up” with her, telling her he didn’t really love her, didn’t want to see her anymore, didn’t need her for anything, in order to show Dr. Charles that he was self-sufficient. Jeez. Poor Reese…)

The big case of the week, though, was a set of conjoined twin babies. They were gearing up to separate them after a few more weeks, but one of the twins was sick, and after learning that the baby was experiencing heart failure, what to do about it divided the doctors. Leaving the twins joined now would likely kill them both. According to Connor was sure he could get the sick twin better without having to do the separation now. But one of the other doctors thinks that’s too risky and they’re better off doing the separation and having a near 100 percent chance of saving the second baby’s life. The parents agreed to that when Connor was told he couldn’t even give them his option…but he stopped them right before the procedure was about to get underway and told them his opinion, and they agreed to try it. Thankfully, it turned out well and both babies were alive and well to continue the wait for the agreed-upon separation surgery.

And on another sad case, Will’s patient was misdiagnosed as having diverticulitis, when in reality he had sarcoidosis, an inflammatory condition that will require ongoing medication. Unfortunately, the man was upset because he’d had to change their health insurance in order to help pay for their son’s college tuition, so all the tests and stuff Will ran weren’t covered because they were out of network. You couldn’t help but feel bad for the guy.

On the personal side of things, Maggie asked Barry for help in fudging the expiration date on her paramedic’s license, which would mean she wouldn’t be in trouble for doing the tracheotomy in the previous episode, and he agreed. Thankfully it wasn’t needed because the patient’s family backed her, saying she saved their loved one. So Maggie’s back at work. Natalie is still keeping Will at arm’s length, needing space from him. And Ethan’s sister came to him, asking if she could crash with him for a while since she was kicked out of her apartment. She claimed it was because she complained to the manager so often about the water temp or something… But after she had a party at his apartment even after he specifically said not to, begging April to keep it to herself when she found out, I don’t know… Something’s going to happen with her, I think. And finally, Natalie is still giving Will almost a cold shoulder after telling him before that she needs a break. Bah!

On tonight’s episode, “An Inconvenient Truth,” after taking the lead on a surgery, Dr. Bekker feels the heat after something goes wrong. Dr. Manning and Dr. Charles are faced with a tough decision concerning the gender of a 9-year-old girl. April and Dr. Reese rush to find the son of a dying patient. Goodwin’s godson is admitted to the hospital.

Find out what goes wrong during the surgery tonight on NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing NCIS, Roseanne, Alex, Inc, LA to Vegas, Splitting Up Together, Chopped, & NCIS: New Orleans.
