If We Controlled Your Remote… 5/9/14

I am running out of nails to bite as I watch all my favorite shows near the end of their seasons, and yes, I am aware of how co-dependent I sound. On a bright note, finales mean great TV, so before I change my mind and decide not to watch anymore TV (okay, we know THAT won’t happen), let’s see what we’re recommending tonight.

Megan’s Choice #1

hawaiifiveo59smallThe first finale that’s up for me tonight is Hawaii Five-0, and I am getting my tissues ready for this one. Last week’s episode had me so emotional, watching Catherine try to save the boy of an Afghan family who saved her life back when she was in the service. Of course, Steve went with her, but ended up being captured as he used himself as a diversion for Catherine to rescue a van full of children. Eventually, the cavalry came and helped save Steve, which resulted in Steve and Danny having another sweet moment in their bromance. Unfortunately, Steve and Danny were forced to leave Afghanistan without Catherine, and she decided to stay to look for the boy, who was still missing, by herself. There was a really emotional conversation between Steve and Catherine that had them both saying “I love you,” which means Catherine had better not get herself killed because Steve won’t be able to handle that. I am actually quite nervous for tonight’s episode and hope that there are some loose ends tied up as well. Unfortunately, Michelle Borth, who plays Catherine, won’t be on the show next year, at least not as a series regular, so…

On tonight’s episode, “‘O ka Pili ‘Ohana ka ‘Oi,” Grover’s daughter is kidnapped by an old nemesis, he is forced to help steal $100 million in order to get her back. Meanwhile, Wo Fat escapes prison and heads back to Oahu. Nick Jonas & Mark Dascascos guest star.

To see what consequences come out of this sticky situation, tune in to CBS at 9/8c.

Jenny’s Choice

unforgettable59smallLast week’s Unforgettable was really great. Eliot and the mayor were trapped in an elevator inside a very rich man’s (or so he’d been before he lost all his money) building. Carrie and Joanne had been at the same party, but they were away from the group when it was taken hostage. Joanne eventually showed herself so she could take care of one of the wounded hostages, but Carried worked from outside the group to take down the bad guys and keep in touch with Al, Cherie, and Jay back at headquarters. In the end, she was able to take them down, along with the team’s help. But the best parts of the episode were every time Al told Carrie that he needed her to get out alive. I swear, they were *thisclose* to kissing, and when she ran to him after getting out of the building and jumped into his arms, I nearly hurt my face, I grinned so hard. But if they don’t kiss in tonight’s finale, I’ll be very unhappy!

As I said, tonight is the season finale, but thankfully, we won’t have long to wait because season 3 starts up at the very end of June. So just over a month and a half before we get more new episodes. As for tonight, I’ll be curling up and enjoying what I hope will be a great finale.

On tonight’s episode, “Reunion,” when a high school classmate of Carrie’s is murdered at her reunion, she must revisit her memories as a teenager for clues to the motive.

See Carrie go back to school—and if Al goes with her—tonight on CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Whose Line is it Anyway?, Grimm, Hawaii Five-0, Blue Bloods, & Diners, Drive-ins & Dives.

Kyle’s Choice

grimm59smallLast week on Grimm, Trubel joined Nick and Hank on a ride-along to a crime scene, where she instantly recognized that the exsanguinated victim was a Wesen. They quickly determined that the young woman was part of a team that was robbing high-end designer clothing shoppes, and they arranged for Trubel to get recruited by her former crew so they could have someone on the inside. Meanwhile, Adalind searched for an old book in her mother’s storage unit, but once she found it, she could not get the book to open. But after she accidentally cut herself and a drop of her blood fell on the book, the tome magically opened.

What is in this book, and what does Adalind plan to do with it? Will Nick be able to help Trubel be a little less reckless and rough around the edges? And what will her role in the group be moving forward?

On tonight’s episode, “The Inheritance,” Nick and Hank investigate a double homicide that’s linked to the Verrat. Meanwhile, Trubel meets a father-and-son team who traveled a great distance to find “the Portland Grimm”; and Renard grows suspicious of Adalind’s behavior.

See what Adalind does to raise Renard’s suspicion tonight on NBC at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Continuum.

Megan’s Choice #2

bluebloods59smallAnother show that I’m going to miss a lot over the summer is Blue Bloods, because nothing makes the beginning of the weekend brighter than some time spent with my favorite crime-fighting family, the Regans. Last week’s episode had quite a bit of gray areas when it came to families and who gets what when someone passes away. This situation was brought to the forefront when an undercover cop was murdered after his cover was blown. The investigation uncovered that he was living a double life. On one side, he was married with two girls off in college, while on the other side, he was living with a woman who had just had his baby. Unfortunately, the wife figured things out and called an unknown number on his phone, which led to her accidentally revealing he was a cop to the people he was undercover to investigate. Her jealousy got him killed, and I’m not sure how I would have reacted if that had been me. At the end of the day, Frank believed that they just couldn’t leave the girlfriend and her baby unassisted after her lover’s death because it was obvious he loved both women. Do I think that someone can love more than one person? Possibly, but the people involved should all have a say in whether they feel comfortable with this arrangement for sure, instead of sneaking around, which, as we saw, leads to a lot of trouble.

On tonight’s season finale, “Exiles,” when Danny is placed on modified duty after investigating a case that was off-limits, he realizes he stumbled upon something that someone is trying to keep quiet. When he passes the tip on to his father, Frank is alarmed when he learns the enormity of this case and the internal involvement.

To see just how deep the deception runs, tune in to CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching Hart of Dixie, Grimm, Diners, Drive-ins & Dives, and Say Yes to the Dress.
