ncis512smallLast week’s NCIS was very emotional. The team, along with Ned Dorneget, was on the search for the group that is recruiting children and teenagers. The episode before that, Gibbs was almost killed when one of those teens blew up himself and a thankfully empty (after Gibbs got the passengers out) bus. The team figured out the group was on the hunt for S-bombs on the black market. McGee and Ned went to Egypt to try to help find the terrorist group’s leader. Unfortunately, that’s where the other six bombs were planted at the hotel they were at, and as Ned was trying to get people away from the hotel, he wasn’t able to stop a man from tripping the laser, which blew the bombs…killing Ned.

Ned was far from my favorite character, but he’d grown up so much from the time he joined the team temporarily. Being on the NCIS cyber team had done him a lot of good. When McGee flew home with his body, we met Ned’s mother…who, it turns out, is CIA. She told Gibbs that it was time to get these guys, so with her and the CIA’s help, The Calling is going down, I can only imagine — but will they take anyone else down with them? Tonight’s season finale should answer that question, but I have my fingers crossed!

On tonight’s episode, “Neverland,” NCIS feverishly investigates the Calling, a global terrorist group that is recruiting teens via the Internet, following a deadly bombing overseas that resulted in Ned Dorneget’s death. Mimi Rogers guest stars as CIA Officer Joanna Teague, Ned’s mother.

Find out if the team can take down the Calling tonight on CBS at 8/7c.

shield512smallTonight, the second season of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. comes to a close with a special 2-hour episode. Last week, Coulson and Gonzales agreed to join forces to form one united S.H.I.E.LD. Meanwhile, Raina and Gordon boarded the ship to retrieve a dangerous Kree stone but were discovered by May and Bobbi. They managed to escape back to Afterlife, but S.H.I.E.L.D. was able to track them and set a course for the Inhumans’ hideout. Gonzales tried to negotiate with Jiaying to hand over Cal, but he ended up insulting her in the process. She smashed a crystal holding pieces of the Diviner, and the resulting mist caused Gonzales to turn to stone. Then Jiaying took Gonzales’s gun, shot herself in the arm, and played the victim, claiming S.H.I.E.L.D. tried to kill her and declaring war.

So where do Skye’s loyalties lie? Will she stick with S.H.I.E.L.D, or join the Inhumans? If a full-on battle breaks out between S.H.I.E.L.D. and the Inhumans, how can our powerless humans possibly expect to win? I can’t wait to see how this war plays out and who will survive for next season. There were failed plans to do a Hunter/Bobbi spin-off next season, so I’m also interested to see how those original plans are reflected in tonight’s finale.

On tonight’s episodes, “S.O.S. Parts 1 & 2,” sacrifices are made by Agent Coulson and his team in order to get through a war, and relationships are permanently altered as a result.

See what sacrifices have to be made and how it affects the team tonight on ABC at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Undateable, The Flash, iZombie, Younger, and Your Family or Mine.

ncisnola512smallTonight’s NCIS: NOLA continues once again after last week’s “To Be Continued…” That episode was continued from the previous week, in which Savannah, Lasalle’s girlfriend, was killed by Baitish. Last week, Pride and the team finally captured Baitfish (after undercover DEA agent Sonja was shot and nearly killed), only to have him escape…and then get shot and killed by an unknown shooter. He was going to spill the beans — something to do with the ports and some bad stuff going on through them — to get his own deal. When Brody and Sonja went to the port at the end of the episode and talked to the Navy guy there, he mentioned just how big the port yards were…and that’s gonna be a hellacious job, tracking down the stuff they’re after with what little information they have!

So who is behind the port stuff? Sasha Broussard? Could be… But another good candidate is Councilman Hamilton, played by the always fantastic Steven Weber. We should find out on tonight’s season finale!

On tonight’s episode, “My City,” after receiving intelligence that the ports have been breached, placing the Navy and the Gulf Coast in harm’s way, Pride and the NCIS team follow every angle to determine what has entered their city and how they can put a stop to the Broussard Syndicate, who seem to always be one step ahead of them. Dylan Walsh, Steven Weber, & Stacy Keach (playing Pride’s father, Cassius) guest star.

See if Pride & his team can put a stop to the Broussard Syndicate and anyone else involved in the breach of the ports tonight on CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing 19 Kids & Counting, Hell’s Kitchen, iZombie, Undateable, Chicago Fire, Chopped, CSI: Cyber, & Your Family or Mine.

chicagofire512smallTonight is the season finale of Chicago Fire. This show is just getting better and better, especially all the crossover episodes that have been going on lately. There was some tension between Truck 81 and Rescue Squad 3, to the point where it threatened the friendship of Casey and Severide. Severide made it clear that he wanted Otis to back off Rice, but Otis knew that he was right about him. Rice didn’t like it and ended up badmouthing Truck 81. Severide called him out in front of everyone, and it got Casey involved, who initially didn’t want to hear it, but it ended up causing issues between Casey and Severide. It was after a big argument that they got a dangerous call that almost got Severide killed and brought him to question Rice’s behaviour. Rice was very defensive, and so the unraveling of their friendship began.

Elsewhere, we learned that Casey’s ex-boss, Jack, is helping traffic women through the club, and Voight got Casey to wear a wire (in his phone) and get some information. We were left with Casey’s phone being inspected and the foreign guys being very suspicious of him. I’m interested to see how the PD helps get him out of this one.

On tonight’s season finale, “Spartacus,” Cruz and Boden put their lives on the line when a warehouse blaze gets out of control.

To see how it all unfolds, tune in to NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching The Voice, Hell’s Kitchen, NCIS: NOLA, iZombie, Chopped, and Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D..
