In an interesting pacing turn, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow’s latest season started last week with their installment in the annual Crisis Crossover as that story’s conclusion. The crossover only really dealt with two “Legends” mostly – Sara Lance and Ray Palmer – so it seemed weird to sacrifice their season premiere to such a minimal overlap. It was still a fun episode. It just did little to nothing to set the tone for what we might expect in this latest Legends season.

So what did happen? Well…everyone from the previous 4 installments of Crisis on Infinite Earths woke up on a newly reformed planet named Earth Prime. Yes, everyyyyyone. So Supergirl & Black Lightning now happen on the same world as The Flash & Batwoman. Cool. So like exactly what happened in the comic version of this story. First order of business was beating some illusionist who used a fake Beebo to distract the heroes as he robbed a bank. Till Flash and Sara figured it out and showed up to kick his ass. Various people were having trouble adjusting to the newly reformed world they shared. For instance, Supergirl now worked for Lex Luthor in the new version of the DEO.

But the Nash version of Harrison Wells had detected that the Anti-Monitor was not quite dead, and sure enough, he soon reformed and the heroes must assemble once more. While the Geek Squad worked on a shrinking bomb that should make the Big Bad shrink infinitely smaller forever, the Muscle and Laser Squad took him on head to head. Eventually the device was created and Supergirl threw it right at him. Bam! Crisis averted. Or at least concluded. Mostly.

Barry showed the united heroes a base he had established for them that featured a shrine to their fallen friend Green Arrow. As they sat down as what could only be seen as the Arrowverse’s Justice League, a strange cackling was heard all about them. Smashcut to credits. So who was that laughing? Beebo again? The Joker? Someone else played by Mark Hamill? I’m really not sure, but I do know that each season of Legends is based on a single problem that causes glitches all through time space. I’m thinking it’s gotta involve the return of Rip Hunter. Let’s just hope Damian Dahrk isn’t a Big Bad for the 4th time, FFS.

On tonight’s episode, “Meet the Legends,” Sara, Ray and Mick are shocked to discover that the Legends have become famous; the Legends discover that their new problem is Rasputin; Constantine thinks he knows the reason for new time blips and informs the team that it won’t be easy to defeat.

Find out the reasons for the time blips tonight on The CW at 9/8c.

I’ll also be tuning in for Arrow.

Last week, The Resident returned for its third season on FOX. In the opening moments, we learned that it was Nic’s sister Jessie who didn’t survive the surgery, while her father did. Nic was taking the loss hard, and even though it had been a month, Nic was still not ready to scatter to her sister’s ashes and say goodbye. Mina tried to convince Nic to come back to work, letting her know that Red Rock Mountain Medical had cut the funding for her free clinic – this conglomerate that purchased Chastain Park only cares about the bottom line and profits over patients.

Back at the hospital, a young patient had run away at the sight of a needle, and Conrad tracked him to the basement. However, there was a gas leak and the proton beam accelerator exploded, sending shrapnel into Conrad and particle physicist Annie. While treating their injuries, the doctors discovered that Annie had Stage 4 cancer, which she was determined to fight. There was some suspicion that the explosion might not have been an accident and that someone at Red Rock may have wanted to eliminate the costly machinery that was hardly being utilized, in favor of the insurance payout.

Meanwhile, Kit got wind that Red Rock was thinking of not renewing her contract due to her low billing rate of just $2M per year. However, they were excited to bring in rock star neurosurgeon Barrett Cain, with his $80M per year in billings. Plus, last season’s miracle triple transplant patient, Eloise, was now an intern at the hospital but must take extreme precautions when seeing sick patients due to her cystic fibrosis.

The series is back in full form, and the new staff shake-ups at the hospital should make for some interesting new dynamics this season. It seems so long ago that we were holding our breath every time that Dr. Bell entered the operating room. Now it seems like he should be the least of the patients’ concerns – they should be more worried about the hospital administrators who see them as a number and whose sole goal is to maximize profits, even at the expense of their needs.

On tonight’s episode, “Flesh of My Flesh,” intending to garner publicity for the hospital, Cain tries to recruit Bell and Kit on a dangerous surgery; the Raptor develops an emotional attachment to a patient; Mina’s friend arrives with shocking news.

Find out what Bell and Kit decide about the surgery tonight on FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Bless This Mess, mixed-ish, black-ish, Emergence, and This Is Us.

Last week’s FBI hit way too close to home for Maggie in a couple of different ways. First up was the victim of the case-of-the-week, another FBI agent who was also married to an FBI agent. Maggie had been at Quantico with the victim’s wife, so she was friends with the couple. So his murder hit her hard, and she knew how his widow was feeling, since her husband had also been killed. But during the case, in which they figured out the lawyer killed him and a gang member and caught the gang leader who in turn killed the lawyer, they also figured out that the victim had been cheating on his wife. Only, when Maggie finally told her at the end, it turned out she already knew. That’s when Maggie learned from Kristen that Maggie’s husband had been exchanging late-night phone calls with a woman before his death. Kristen couldn’t tell her if those calls were business or personal, but we know that Kristen told OA that there didn’t seem to be any business reason for him to have called her. Right at the end, we saw Maggie go to the woman’s work and ask to see her. What we don’t know is what Maggie learned. I don’t know if we’ll find that out in tonight’s season finale or if we’ll just be left to speculate. Given the episode description, I think we’ll find out… Either way, it’s been a fun first season, and I can’t wait for season two already.

On tonight’s episode, “Closure,” a woman with information about the death of Maggie’s husband is abducted leading the team to uncover a criminal operation larger than anyone imagined. Also, Dana puts her career in jeopardy by standing by and allowing Maggie to work on the case, which has such a personal connection to her.

Don’t miss the chance to get more answers to Maggie’s husband’s death tonight on CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing American Housewife, MasterChef Junior, NCIS, Chopped, & NCIS: New Orleans.

Tonight, USA Network kicks off the new reality series Growing Up Chrisley. This spin-off finds two of the Chrisley children heading from Nashville to L.A. to try to launch their own careers. Todd had been trying to get Chase and Savannah to follow in his footsteps in the real estate business, but neither of them is interested. Chase wants to pursue a career in acting, while Savannah wants to launch her own cosmetic and fragrance line.

The new series feels very much like the original – tonight’s premiere is pretty much a normal episode of Chrisley Knows Best, with the kids trying to convince their father to let them go on their adventure. He ultimately agrees to a 90-day trial period, with the stipulation that their grandmother join them on their road trip. And so the second episode is more of the same, with Chase and Savannah on a road trip with Nanny Faye. It’s not until the third episode that the new series really kicks off, and Chase and Savannah move to Los Angeles and start on their quest to launch their careers.

The new series is worth a look for fans of the original show, but it may take a few weeks until you see what the new series is really going to be like.

On tonight’s premiere, “Chase & Savannah Fly the Nest,” Chase and Savannah Chrisley embark on a cross-country move to prove they’re independent grown-ups.

See how Chase and Savannah convince their dad of their plans tonight on USA Network at 10:30/9:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording black-ish, The Rookie, This Is Us, and The Village.

Last week’s Valentine’s Day-themed The Rookie was both funny and sad. First I have to touch on Tim’s visit to his wife at rehab. She looked really good, especially considering how she looked when we last saw her after she’d been shot in the head. She’s clean now, and Tim is happy about that, but he came to the realization that he can’t be with her without her remembering back to how she felt at her lowest point, and he’s afraid of that jeopardizing her recovery/sobriety. So he walked away. I would imagine that took a lot of courage and love, putting her health and good welfare above his own feelings. It was really sad.

Then there was the creepy guy (played by the always fantastic John Billingsley) who had dementia but was a serial killer. He attacked both West and the cutie nurse he was flirting with (and wow, who knew he was gay?), nearly getting away until Lopez tackled him in the stairwell. I thought it was going to go bad – worse than it did – but thank goodness everyone was okay. Making Lopez’s day worse, it looks like she and Wesley are done. When she asked him out for Vday after he was arrested for contempt of court, he said he’d already made plans. She sneaked into his things in the locker and checked his calendar, which said he had dinner plans with Melanie. Unfortunately for her, when she got snarky and brought it up with him, he told her Melanie was his stepmom and he’d planned to spend it with her since it was her first one without his dad. Oops. So now he’s angry that she snooped, and it looks like they’re done.

The both funniest and saddest parts of the episode had to do with Nolan and his “stalker,” whom he met on a call about a single-car accident. The woman had hit a power pole and ended up getting shocked by a downed power line. Nolan risked his life to get her and then performed CPR, bringing her back to life. The woman showed up at the station just after being released from the hospital, intending to give Nolan a big basket of muffins. He thanked her but made it clear he wasn’t interested in more. She then made a fake emergency call about an intruder to get him back to her house, and that’s when Nolan saw a photo and folded flag on her mantel. Her husband had died overseas just over a year before, and she was so lonely, she was doing anything to fill that void. She even showed up at Nolan’s house as Ben’s date for their “Anti-Valentine’s Day Party,” (at which it was first only Nolan, Ben, and Lucy). When Nolan went to tell her again that he wasn’t interested, he found her naked in his bed…and quickly realized she’d overdosed on pills. Thankfully they all worked to keep her awake and alert until EMTs got there. (And speaking of the party… After Lucy left to stay with the woman instead of Nolan accompanying her, Bishop was the only one to show up. It turned out she had a love interest who was married, and Lopez urged her to break up with him for good when she admitted he was still with his wife. She must have done that, because then she showed up at the party. And was it just me or were there sparks between her & Ben as they started talking about Nolan’s past?!

On tonight’s episode, “Caught Stealing,” the rookies become the prime suspects after it is discovered a large sum of money used in a drug bust has gone missing.

See if they determine who the real thief is tonight on ABC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing American Housewife, Ellen’s Game of Games, NCIS, The Kids Are Alright, Chopped, FBI, NCIS: New Orleans, & Miracle Workers.
