suits224smallLast week on Suits, the event that we’ve been building to over the last four and a half seasons finally kicked off: Mike’s trial for impersonating a lawyer. Harvey and Jessica had convinced Mike to do a practice mock trial in front of the firm, and the proceedings led to some intense moments between Harvey and Mike. However, the mock trial was interrupted by Anita Gibbs, who showed up to announce that she had gotten the trail date moved up. Meanwhile, Harvey’s plan to ship Sheila out of the country so she couldn’t testify backfired, and Gibbs threatened to go after him for witness tampering if Sheila didn’t return from Argentina. At the trial, Gibbs put Donna on the stand, and she was forced to plead the fifth so as to not incriminate herself, which didn’t look good for Mike. Harvey was able to score some points by convincing Mike’s former client Jimmy to testify that Mike went to Harvard with him (which was a total lie). Gibbs tried to convince the jury that Jimmy was perjuring himself, but did she do enough?

Things aren’t looking great for Mike – he needs to be able to testify but not end up on the stand himself. He wants to switch and represent himself, as this will allow him to not only achieve that but also help the jury see him as a lawyer. However, will he and Harvey be able to convince the judge to allow them to make this switch? Even so, do they have a chance at winning this case? Will Louis crumble under Gibbs’s pressure and make a deal with her in exchange for immunity? It’s amazing that a show can still be this tense and enjoyable five seasons in. I never thought we’d actually get to this case, but I’m so glad we have, because this has been really exciting to watch!

On tonight’s episode, “Tick Tock,” Louis considers Anita Gibbs’s offer to turn on his compatriots; Rachel advises Mike on how to win hearts and minds in the courtroom; Donna begs Harvey to not do anything rash, while Jessica thinks he should; and Harvey and Mike contemplate a new strategy.

Catch more of the trial of the year tonight on USA Network at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Survivor, Criminal Minds, The Middle, The Goldbergs, Modern Family, black-ish, Arrow, Supernatural, Young & Hungry, Baby Daddy, Man Seeking Woman, Face Off, Younger, and Teachers.

chicagopd224smallI couldn’t help but feel bad for the professor on last week’s Chicago PD. During a sobriety checkpoint, Burgess noticed something was off and decided to check the guy’s car over. When the trunk was found suspiciously empty, they brought over the drug dog, who indeed indicated that there was something there. They used magic (or a bit of electricity) and opened a hidden hatch, where they found a crap-ton of heroin. The professor claimed to not know where it came from. But through their investigation, the team learned that he wrote to many men in jail and was in a relationship with one who’d been paroled not long before. He had told the professor that he owed a bad guy a lot of money, so the professor was helping to smuggle drugs into Canada to earn the money the guy claimed he needed. The professor, who was married with a daughter, said he was in love with the man and that the man loved him in return, but it turned out the man was using him. Gotta feel bad for the guy’s wife and daughter, too. What a way to learn your husband/father is gay!

Meanwhile, Roman told Platt he wanted to become a training officer, and since Burgess was riding along with Lindsay and Intelligence, Platt said she would ride with him and let him be her training officer to see what he was made of. He didn’t do too bad a job. He surprised her but she also taught him a lesson too. And finally, Mouse set Halstead up with the owner of a medical marijuana store as a side security job. Halstead took it reluctantly, so we’ll see how it goes!

On tonight’s episode, “The Cases That Need to be Solved,” Lindsay, Halstead, and Mouse search for a connection when two shootings take place in gang territory; a candlelight vigil is held for a young boy who was murdered in the first shooting.

See if they can catch the shooters tonight on NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Mysteries of Laura, The Goldbergs, Criminal Minds, Law & Order: SVU, Modern Family, Property Brothers, Hell’s Kitchen, black-ish, & Restaurant Startup.

criminalminds224smallCriminal Minds has been around for a very long time, but that doesn’t lessen my love for the show or the cast – Shemar Moore will never fail to be a delicious sight to behold. However, it’s not just the sexy cast that makes me tune in week after week. It’s the way the show draws you in with disturbing cases and intriguing UnSubs.

On the last episode, there was an extremely creepy UnSub who was kidnapping girls and keeping them for years. These girls called him “Daddy,” and yet he had sex with them and got them pregnant. The oldest girl had 2 children, which was why she was so desperate to protect him when they were arrested. It was very sad watching these girls, but it was even worse that the one girl, Sheila, died from an infection after childbirth because she didn’t receive treatment. In the end, the man was shot by Sheila’s mom because of the fact he was responsible for her daughter’s death. It was great that in the end, justice was served, but also that Violet and Gina both managed to survive and Violet remembered details about the secret place he took her to, which led to her daughters being rescued. What a crazy episode, but at least there was a satisfying end.

On tonight’s episode, “A Badge and a Gun,” the BAU searches Los Angeles after the team discovers security footage that shows an UnSub being invited into victims’ homes.

Find out if they can locate the UnSub before it’s too late tonight on CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching Chicago PD, Code Black, Law & Order: SVU, and Hell’s Kitchen.
