Sarah Manning (TATIANA MASLANY)Tonight, Orphan Black returns for a fourth season on BBC America, on a brand new night. Last season we were introduced to the male Castor clones, who were bred more as soldiers. As the third season came to a close, Dr. Coady had sent Rudy to find Alison, but he ran into Helena and the two had a prison yard-style brawl that ended with Rudy’s death. Mark tried to impersonate Rudy, but Sarah found him and got him to reveal Dr. Coady’s plan. Meanwhile, Krystal was impersonating Rachel, and this led Delphine to uncover the Neolutionist conspiracy – which in turn led to her bleeding out in a parking garage at the end of the season. The real Rachel once again had two eyes and now a sort-of-adopted child in the young Leda clone, Charlotte. Elsewhere, Sarah was reunited with daughter Kira; a pregnant Helena had been helping out with the Hendrixes’ not-so-legal soap business, and as a thanks, Donnie and Alison reunited her with boyfriend Jesse; Cosmina contemplated telling Shay everything; and Alison won the election.

There are so many different clones and conspiracies to keep track of with this show, but it always finds a nice blend of comedy, drama, suspense, and unexpected twists. Tatiana Maslany is so brilliant that I always forget that so many of these characters are played by the same actress – they all have such unique personalities, and the scenes in which they interact look so convincing and real.

On tonight’s premiere “The Collapse of Nature,” a Neolution attack destroys Sarah’s refuge in Iceland and forces her to flee once again.

See where Sarah runs to tonight on BBC America at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Odd Couple, Rush Hour, Grey’s Anatomy, The Catch, The Blacklist, Game of Silence, Bones, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, The 100, Archer, and 60 Days In.

bones414smallIt’s been way too long (just over three months! That’s like a summer hiatus!) since we last had a new episode of Bones, and it was a huge one. During the first hour of the two-hour fall finale, Booth and Bones went undercover at an Old West-style shooting competition, where Bones, much to Booth’s surprise, excelled. They had a friendly rivalry going on. It was a fun episode, but what came next was a shocker. A cop was killed, and during the investigation (after he and Angela had made the decision to have another baby), Hodgins and Aubrey were too close when the body exploded – the bad guy had basically made him into a bomb with shrapnel and everything – and although it seemed like Aubrey got the brunt of it and saved Hodgins from darn near all harm, Hodgins collapsed after he had been released from the hospital, and we learned he was paralyzed from the waist down. That’s how the midseason ended. Crazy! (Meanwhile, Cam has to make a decision about Sebastian and their future or her future with Arastoo. A great story line as well, but not the one-two punch of the exploding body and paralyzed Hodgins!)

So is the paralysis permanent? Will the episode pick up shortly after the previous episode ended or will there be a time jump and Hodgins will be back at work? Given the episode description, there is a time jump, so it’ll be interesting to see where the characters are a couple of months later.

On tonight’s episode, “The Death in the Defense,” picking up after the explosive fall finale, Hodgins is eight weeks into his rehabilitation for his paralysis and forced to navigate life in a wheelchair. Meanwhile, Brennan and Booth investigate the death of a public defender who had multiple defendants from previous cases with motives to kill her.

Catch up with the squints and our FBI folks tonight on FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Man vs Child: Chef Showdown, Cooks vs Cons, 2 Broke Girls, Beat Bobby Flay, Impractical Jokers, & Rush Hour.

greysanatomy414smallGrey’s Anatomy has honestly been fantastic lately, and I am once again completely hooked. Last week we watched as April and Jackson both struggled with Catherine’s view on things, especially after April overheard Catherine say that Jackson needed to go for custody. April decided to beat him to the punch, and she filed for a restraining order – only to come home to find a crib waiting there from Jackson. He isn’t his mom, and now I hope they can fix it, because they are definitely meant to be.

Also on last episode, Penny ended up getting the grant over the other interns, and they were very mad at her because they felt like she lied to them. Callie was also really upset at Penny but didn’t say anything because Penny had just said she didn’t want it because it meant leaving Callie. I’d be upset if I was Callie too, and I think Penny made a huge mistake. Tonight we are getting a double episode, which is supposed to be filled with some extreme drama, and I am really looking forward to it.

On tonight’s first episode, “There’s a Fine, Fine Line,” after a missing child forces the hospital into lockdown, Ben decides to operate on a pregnant mother without the proper surgical equipment. Miranda, as Chief, is faced with the repercussions of the event and whether or not Ben’s impulsive actions were justified. Then on the second episode, “It’s Alright, Ma (I’m Only Bleeding),” Miranda continues to deal with the aftermath of Ben’s reckless decisions and forms an advisory committee to recommend proper disciplinary action against him. Meanwhile, April and Jackson try to put their differences aside for the sake of their baby, and Arizona makes a decision that could affect her relationship with Callie forever.

For these emotional episodes, tune in to ABC starting at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching Bones, American Grit, Strong, The Catch, Game of Silence, and Rush Hour .
