empire318smallTonight, the first season of Fox’s odds-defying ratings juggernaut Empire comes to a close with a special 2-hour finale. Last week we saw more evidence of how Lucious’s image has always been the top priority in his life. When Andre was diagnosed with bipolar disease in college, his father’s solution was for him to just will it away and not tell anyone about his weakness.

Back in the present, Lucious tried to pay off Camilla to leave his much-younger-than-her son Hakeem, and when she refused, he had her escorted off the premises and let Hakeem believe she took his bribe. Meanwhile, Olivia returned with her abusive boyfriend Reg in tow, and when Jamal confronted him about the violence, Reg pulled a gun. During the chaos, Lucious revealed that Lola was actually HIS daughter and that he paid Olivia to marry Jamal. The standoff came to an end when Malcolm shot and killed Reg. Afterwards, the now-safe Olivia took Lola with her and left for good. And Lucious proposed to Cookie, who said no, realizing Lucious was just scared of ending up alone.

Cookie said no?! Lucious announcing he had an illegitimate child with his daughter-in-law didn’t win her over?! After all this time of wanting to get back together with Lucious, Cookie finally realized she can do better—and already seems to have some chemistry with Malcolm. Is this really the end of Cookie and Lucious, or is this back-and-forth going to go on forever? This show loves dropping huge bombshells at the end of each episode, so I can’t wait to see what they leave us with at the end of tonight’s season finale!

On tonight’s finale, “Die But Once/Who I Am,” Lucious has a secret that’s about to change everything as he and Jamal seem on their way to forming a music-centered relationship. Meanwhile, Hakeem decides to flirt with the enemy; at the same time, he’s trying to figure out what’s the best move for his career; and Cookie cooks up a plan to get herself back on top.

See how the season ends on tonight’s 2-hour season finale on FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Survivor, Arrow, Supernatural, Melissa & Joey, Baby Daddy, The Americans, Man Seeking Woman, Broadchurch, and Workaholics.

csicyber318smallCSI: Cyber has been a refreshing instalment to the franchise, and I’ve been enjoying it thoroughly since its premiere. Patricia Arquette is absolutely fantastic in her role as Agent Avery, and she makes it look easy. When I first heard about this series, I was a little bit skeptical because there have been other shows that have tried to do something similar and failed—but that’s not the case here. Last week’s episode was intense as we watched the team try to catch the man behind the rollercoaster hack, which might I say is one of the scariest thoughts ever. There have been many moments on this show so far that make me wonder how safe we really are, and my fiance says it’s turning me into a conspiracy theorist—perhaps, but I’ll keep watching.

On tonight’s episode, “Killer En Route,” the cyber team investigates when a car service company’s dispatch software is hacked in order to target certain passengers.

To see if the team can stop them and save the day, tune in to CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching Empire, My 600-lb Life, Arrow, Supernatural, and Baby Daddy.
