Tonight, the fourth season of The Flash begins on The CW. As the third season came to a close, Team Flash had its final showdown with speedster Savitar, who turned out to be a future version of Barry. In the process, H.R. sacrificed himself to save Iris, Caitlin learned there’s a cure for her condition, Cisco modified Savitar’s stolen Speed Cannon so that it would release Jay Garrick from prison, and Gypsy returned from across the multiverse to save Cisco. During the final altercation, Barry couldn’t bring himself to kill Savitar, but Iris was more than willing to do the deed, shooting him dead. Afterwards, Central City was being rocked by earthquakes. The Speed Force was unstable and the prison needed a replacement, so Barry volunteered to go, since all of this mess was due to his selfish acts. Meanwhile, Caitlin refused to take the cure, as she wanted to figure out who she really was.

Who will step up to protect Central City in Barry’s absence? How and when will Barry return from the Speed Force, and how will his time there have affected him? With Caitlin refusing to take the cure, is there a danger of her becoming evil again? With H.R. dead, will we see another version of Dr. Wells appear to take his place?

The third season was a bit of a downer, with Barry constantly moping about something or further messing things up due to his selfishness. Also, it was the third year in a row where the big villain was yet another speedster. The producers have promised to address these issues this season, getting this back to a more chill Barry and the lighter, more fun show people loved in the first season. Also, this year the big bad will not be yet another speedster! The Flash still remains my favorite of The CW’s superhero shows, and I’m looking forward to another season.

On tonight’s premiere, “The Flash Reborn,” a powerful armored villain threatens to level Central City if the Flash doesn’t appear, so Cisco makes a risky decision to break Barry out of the speed force. But the Barry that comes out isn’t the same Barry that went in.

Find out what’s different about Barry since his return tonight on The CW at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Middle, Fresh Off the Boat, black-ish, The Mayor, Kevin (Probably) Saves the World, Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders, The Mick, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, American Horror Story: Cult, and Chrisley Knows Best.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine is always so much fun, and last week was a prime example. Who else loved meeting Capt. Holt’s mother? LOL The Honorable Laverne Holt was basically just Raymond Holt as a slightly shorter, slightly older female. They talked the same, thought the same, and reacted the same to everything. Really hysterical. Jake got the honor (only after Amy let her nerves and excitement get the better of her and reacted to the chance to help by dorking out…) of helping when Mrs. Holt’s apartment was robbed. He and Capt. Holt figured out it was robbed while she was at Wine Club, and they went undercover at the next meeting. When the apartment that Jake gave the address of to the hostess was broken into, he realized it was the hostess and her boyfriend, and they were arrested. Of course, the best story line for that episode was Capt. Holt realizing his mother was dating and she hadn’t told him. He reacted more strongly than we’ve ever seen him – stopping the car in the middle of the road, getting out, and calmly walking away. LOL The side stories of Terry, Charles, and Rosa remodeling the breakroom was great (what the heck was their remodel, anyway? Crazy… LOL), as was Scully and Hitchcock’s reaction to it. Needless to say, seeing them rubbing all over the new couch and stuff was…vaguely disturbing!

Then in the second episode, Jake and Rosa got involved in a case with their idol, Lieutenant Melanie Hawkins. Unfortunately, the show dealt a huge shocker to Jake (& presumably Rosa, although we didn’t see her reaction), right after they were invited to be on her team, when they learned that Lieutenant Hawkins is a dirty cop. Instead of actually looking for the bank robbers like they are supposed to be…they ARE the bank robbers. Eek! My favorite part of that episode, though, was Scully and Hitchcock fighting like little boys after Scully blew off Hitchcock for their weekly brunch or whatever in order to spend time with his new girlfriend. They had a ranch dressing fight (ew. LOL), called each other names, and basically acted like babies. Nothing Charles or Terry could do would make a dent in their fighting. Finally, Gina came in and said they were acting like animals so they needed to be treated like animals. When she yelled and clapped her hands at them, then gave them treats after they apologized, it worked perfectly. LOL

So now that Jake and Rosa know Hawkins is dirty, will they try to take her down in tonight’s double-episode finale? Of course they will. You couldn’t expect anything less, could you? Things won’t go as planned, I promise. I’ve seen both episodes, and they truly live up to the fun and excitement, as well as the jaw-dropping moments of shock and surprise that Brooklyn Nine-Nine likes to fling at the viewers on their finales. LOL

On tonight’s episodes, “The Bank Job/Crime & Punishment,” after discovering a dangerous secret, Jake and Rosa call for back-up from Holt and Pimento (guest star Jason Mantzoukas). Meanwhile, Boyle objects to Gina’s new boyfriend (guest star Ryan Phillipe). Then, Jake and Rosa are framed for a crime they didn’t commit, it’s up to the Nine-Nine to find a way to bust them out. Gina Gershon also guest stars.

Find out what happens with Jake and Rosa and why Boyle objects to Gina’s new boyfriend tonight on FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Chopped Junior, Great News, Prison Break, & Chopped.

They blew up the lab!! Did that freak anyone else out at the end of last week’s Bones, when the lab at the Jeffersonian literally got blown to smithereens?? What a way to take down a set when a show is ending, huh? LMAO Anyway, through the viewpoint of four different characters, we followed each of them from the wedding reception up until the bomb went off. I’m totally going out of order, but here were the highlights: Cam’s purse was messed with at the wedding reception, and her keycard for the lab platform was stolen, which is ultimately how the bombs got smuggled into the lab in the middle of the night. Two prisoners escaped from prison, and Kovac (who was after Booth and his family and killed Max) was one of them – he then killed the other man and escaped. At the reception, Avalon warned Booth that Bones was in significant danger. He started to shrug it off but ultimately took the warning to heart. Bones and Angela had a sweet moment of friendship at the reception. Aubrey asked Jessica to move to LA with him when he goes for his new job. She not only turned him down but she broke up with him completely. Oh, and Angela’s pregnant! I figured that out as soon as she started puking her guts up at Zach’s trial. Speaking of Zach… Caroline did all she could to sway the judge in his favor, even though she was the PROSECUTION. It was sweet. And it worked. Between the evidence and all the testimony, Zach is a free man – as soon as he finishes serving the 13 months for helping the killer in the first place. Finally, back to the bomb… Bones had an epiphany moments before the bomb was discovered to be at the lab, and she ran off to grab the evidence, and that left her, Booth, Angela, and Hodgins (who was slower to get out because of his wheelchair)…TRAPPED IN THE LAB WHEN IT EXPLODED! What the what?!

Obviously they can’t all die, right? I trust Hart Hanson and Stephen Nathan and their crew more than that. But will they all come away virtually unscathed? And will they find Kovac and whoever was helping him? Is Cam really leaving the Jeffersonian like she said, at least for six months while she and Arastoo do some traveling? Will Angela’s baby be named Pookie Jr.? I know all (okay, most…) of those answers, since I’ve seen the finale. But you’ll have to find out for yourself. If you’re a fan of the show, I urge you not to miss tonight’s episode. It was made for the fans by the biggest fans of the show, Hart and Stephen, and it’s definitely not-to-be-missed!

On tonight’s episode, “The End in the End,” with Kovac still at large, the team searches for evidence to track him down. After Brennan experiences a setback, the rest of the team must figure out how to find Kovac without her, putting everything she has ever taught them to the test. When all signs point to Kovac having outside help, as well as a hideout, Booth and Brennan go searching for him.

Catch the final episode of a terrific series tonight on FOX at 9:01/8:01c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing NCIS, Trial & Error, Chicago Fire, Chopped, & NCIS: New Orleans.

theflash524smallTonight, the second season of The Flash comes to a close on The CW. Last week’s episode picked up right as Zoom had amassed an army of Earth-2 meta-humans and had brought them to Earth-1 to take over Central City. While the group quickly got to work on a plan to stop the meta-humans, Wally took to the streets to join the fight vigilante-style. Joe was worried and asked Barry to help bring Wally home. However, Barry was thrown off his game when he discovered the leader of the attack was the Black Siren – Laurel Lance’s (aka the Black Canary’s) Earth-2 doppelganger. Eventually the group at STAR labs came up with a plan to blast a sound at a particular frequency that would render anyone from Earth-2 unconscious. The plan, which also involved Caitlin and Cisco going undercover as Killer Frost and Reverb, seemed to be a success, and they were able to round up all the Earth-2 meta-humans. However, Zoom managed to open a rift and escape, and Dr. Wells was nearly killed when he gave his protective headphones to his daughter after hers started to fail. At the end of the episode, Zoom returned to get his revenge – he grabbed Henry and brought him to the same room where Barry’s mother died and stuck his reverberating hand through Henry’s chest as Barry watched in horror.

What a cliffhanger… I’m so glad we still get one more episode tonight! Will Barry be able to avenge his father’s death and finally kill Zoom? Will we finally find out who the man in the iron mask is in Zoom’s lair? How is Wally going to react to discovering that Barry is the Flash? And will Cisco figure out how he unleashed that Reverb-style blast, and will he be able to recreate it and harness this power?

On tonight’s finale, “The Race of His Life,” season 2 ends with Zoom revealing his true plan and Barry vowing to do whatever it takes to stop him.

Find out how the season ends tonight on The CW at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Price Is Right Primetime Special – Big Brother Edition, Fresh Off the Boat, The Real O’Neals, Containment, Chrisley Knows Best, and First Impressions with Dana Carvey.

theflash53smallOn last week’s episode of The Flash, Barry had to readjust to life without his powers and was quickly reminded of how slow things move for regular human beings. He soon found his situation even more difficult when a powerful Meta Human kidnapped Doctor Wells – thinking he was his Earth-1 persona – and threatened to kill him unless Wells reversed the effects of the particle-accelerator explosion. Cisco managed to reinforce Barry’s suit to make it strong enough to withstand a Meta Human attack, and the group managed to rescue Harrison. Wells now recognized the urgency for Barry to regain his powers and decided that recreating the particle-accelerator explosion would be the solution. Meanwhile, on Earth-2, Killer Frost convinced Caitlin to help her escape from her cell and then thanked her by trying to kill her. Zoom stopped this just in time, killing Killer Frost and threatening to do the same to Caitlin if she assisted the man in the iron mask in escaping from his own cell. Afterwards, Zoom decided it was time to conquer Earth-1 and sped off with Caitlin in his arms.

What does Zoom have planned for Barry and the gang? Will Harrison be able to get Barry his powers back, will this be enough to stop Zoom, and what kind of side effects will result from another explosion? And will we ever find out who is behind that iron mask?!

On tonight’s episode, “Rupture,” Zoom arrives back on Earth-1 intent on taking over Central City. Barry and Wells plan to stop Zoom, but it’s extremely dangerous. Unsure if he should take the risk, Barry reaches out to both fathers for advice. Meanwhile, Cisco is shocked when he senses the Earth-2 villain Rupture, who is his brother Dante’s doppelgänger; and Iris decides to open up to Barry about her feelings for him.

See how the plan goes to stop Zoom tonight on The CW at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Fresh Off the Boat, The Real O’Neals, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., New Girl, Grandfathered, The Grinder, and Containment.
