bones611smallLast week on Bones, Booth, Brennan, and the squints had to try to find the murderer of an ex-con and biker gang member turned yoga instructor. He’d been in a motorcycle crash, which meant he couldn’t ride as often or as long as he used to, and after that and prison, he’d turned his life around. Unfortunately for him, his newfound generosity is what got him killed — when he decided to help a fellow ex-con and biker gang member who was trying to make a fresh start and needed money, the victim’s girlfriend and co-owner of the yoga studio killed him. On the personal side of things, Booth is working hard to stay “sober” and earn Brennan’s trust back, and it’s working… She is slowly thawing. And Angela and Hodgins made the decision that they were going to leave the Jeffersonian and move to Paris.

Tonight is the season finale, and I’m very unhappy about that. So many questions… Will Brennan finally forgive Booth and ask him to move back home? Will Angela and Hodgins actually leave the Jeffersonian? Surely not. The show will be back next season, and I can’t imagine it without any members of the team. (I have seen the finale, so I know what happens with all the characters, and I will only say that it’s a great — and surprising — finale.)

On tonight’s episode, “The Next in the Last,” when the Jeffersonian team discovers remains of a victim, and elements of the crime scene point to a possible protégé of serial killer Christopher Pelant, they must revisit their prior work on Pelant while tracing new clues that will hopefully lead them to the copycat killer. Meanwhile, Angela is skeptical about Hodgins’ and her decision to move to Paris and Brennan and Booth contemplate options outside of the Jeffersonian and FBI.

Find out if/how Pelant is tied to the new victim and what Angela/Hodgins & Booth/Brennan decide tonight on FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Beat Bobby Flay.

waywardpines611smallWayward Pines has been one of my favorite new shows of the summer. I love the creepy setting and constantly evolving tone of the series. Last week, Ethan suddenly found himself the town’s new sheriff after Pope met his demise. Ethan found some hidden files on the backgrounds of the various residents of Wayward Pines and started learning about their previous lives. He was soon interrupted by Nurse Pam, who demanded a reckoning for realtor Peter McCall for his treasonous graffiti on Main Street. Ethan had bonded with Peter and refused to kill him, but Peter knew his time was up and threw himself into the electric fence, making it look like Ethan killed him, so that he would win points with the townsfolk. Afterwards, Ethan decided to climb the rock wall to see what lay beyond the town. Meanwhile, Ben received a letter of acceptance to Wayward Pines Academy. At school, Miss Fisher seemed to be trying to brainwash him into calling Wayward Pines his home, and classmate Amy took a quick liking to him. Elsewhere, Theresa was offered the now-vacant real-estate agent position.

What is going on in this town? Why are people being killed only to have their positions conveniently filled by a new arrival? What are Miss Fisher’s plans for Ben? What creatures and secrets lie beyond the wall, and will Ethan survive long enough to find them out? In tonight’s shocking episode, we finally get some answers to some of these questions as the truth about what’s going on in Wayward Pines is revealed — and it’s likely nothing like what you imagined! Tonight’s episode is so good and should not be missed!

If you’re not caught up with the show or just need a refresher before tonight’s game-changing episode, FOX has put together this 4-minute recap of the first four episodes: https://youtu.be/foQEx_uOP6Q

On tonight’s episode, “The Truth,” Ethan ventures outside of Wayward Pines and is shocked by what he discovers; Theresa shows up to her first day of work and meets with a client who seems to share her feelings for the town; and Megan Fisher teaches Ben the truth about where he’s living.

See what, if anything, Ethan learns tonight on FOX at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Hannibal, Bones, and The Comedians.

beatbobbyflay2015smallBeat Bobby Flay is an entertaining show to me for multiple reasons, but I really love it when the contestants actually win against Bobby, because he has never been someone I really liked. The other great part of the show is seeing so many other chefs and actors try to get Bobby taken down, especially when Michael Symon guests, because he is so amusing when he’s poking fun at Bobby. I think that the contestants should avoid anything grilled at all costs, but sometimes they just don’t listen and have to learn the hard way, because Bobby rarely loses with grilled meat.

On tonight’s episode, “Who’s Your Daddy?,” this battle is for the dads when New Jersey’s own Chef Gregory Torrech laces up his bootstraps against Moroccan chef Sam Marvin. Restaurateur Scott Conant and actress and author Haylie Duff decide who has what it takes to face Bobby in this Father’s Day battle.

To see if they can take Bobby down, tune in to Food Network at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching Bones, Wayward Pines, Aquarius, and Olympus.
