On tonight’s Superstore season finale, there’s a storm brewing, both literally and figuratively. Last week it was Cheyenne’s wedding, and things got uncomfortable pretty quickly. Amy brought her husband with her – they were in the process of trying to fix their marriage, but it was easy to see that that wasn’t really going well. When someone referred to Jonah as Amy’s “work husband,” it immediately put him on the defensive, making things really awkward for his date, Kristen. She ultimately broke up with Jonah after he asked her to move in with him as a way to change the subject of conversation. And after much drinking, Jonah let it slip that he finds Amy sexy. Meanwhile, Sandra’s crush Jerry came to the reception as Carol’s date, but he ditched her to spend time with Sandra after she revealed that she didn’t really have a boyfriend. And Glenn was still struggling with the idea of having to fire people, so he invited Jeff to the reception in hopes that he would see some of the poorer staff members and reverse his decision. However, when Mateo saw Jeff, his mind started racing and old feelings started coming back. Soon there was a bit of chaos, and Glenn blurted out the fact that he was going to have to lay off some staff.

How will the Cloud 9-ers react to the news that some of them will be losing their jobs? Will Glenn find a way to avoid this, and if not, who will he let go? Will Amy and Jonah finally get together? So many questions, but I’m also hoping that tonight’s tornado storyline blows us away. This reminds me of the sitcoms of the 80s and 90s, where every show always had at least one episode that revolved around some major storm approaching – there was even one network that weaved the same hurricane through its entire comedy block. I’m looking forward to being swept up by tonight’s finale.

On tonight’s season finale, “Tornado,” Glenn tries to figure out which employees to lay off; Jonah copes with the fallout of an admission he made to Amy; Garrett and Dina spar; and Mateo creates an alliance to keep his job. Also: a tornado warning goes into effect and forces the staff into uncomfortable pairings.

To see how the tornado affects the store and staff, tune in to NBC at 8:30/7:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Grey’s Anatomy, The Big Bang Theory, Life in Pieces, The Amazing Race, The Blacklist, MasterChef: Junior, and Riverdale.

Ohh, the big case from last week’s Chicago Med really upset me. A pregnant woman was rushed to the ER when she was having trouble breathing. Turned out her heart wasn’t working well enough to pump enough blood for both her and the baby. Unfortunately, she was adamantly opposed to doing anything that would hurt the baby – and not because of the baby himself but because she was pregnant specifically to help her daughter, who was dying from cancer. The baby was a genetic match and would be able to donate to help save her daughter. The woman seemed to have no feelings for anyone in her family aside from her daughter, even when what she wanted meant she would die and leave her daughter, two-year-old son, newborn baby, and husband without her. I am a mother. I get wanting to do whatever you can do to save your child, but at the expense of your other child/children, it makes it harder to swallow. I can’t judge well unless I’ve been in those shoes, though, and thank goodness I’ve never been in that situation.

There were other good story lines last week as well. Nina once again saw Will & Natalie together and got jealous, so she brought up autopsy results for one of Nat’s patients, just to rub it in that Natalie missed something that meant her patient died. Technically, it wasn’t Nat’s fault, but Nina was a bitch about it. She apologized later to Will when he confronted her and admitted she was jealous and missing him. Now he’s back to pushing Nat away and even canceling plans with his brother in order to spend special time with Nina and focus on her. Grr. Also, speaking of pushing… Dr. Choi really pushed Noah hard when Noah went to him to ask about a case he was researching. Noah asked his sister to intervene, to tell Dr. Choi to back off, and at first April sided with him, but then she realized Dr. Choi was only trying to make Noah better and she told him to put in the work he needed to. In the end, he figured out the problem and possibly saved a man’s life – not to mention made himself look good to the hospital bigwig right before the med students find out where they match with for their residency!

And that leaves us with Robin, Dr. Charles, and Sarah. Dr. Charles worked it so Sarah was the one to handle Robin’s case, and he just couldn’t help himself. Even after being told to back off, he logged in to the computer system and tried to view Sarah’s notes. She hadn’t put any in yet, so he still didn’t learn anything. But then he stole Robin’s keys from her purse and went to her apartment after she told him she was back home, and what he found there was a shock. There were mouse traps ALL OVER the place, as well as other things to help catch the rats she keeps hearing in the walls. Clearly she’s not well. Unfortunately, he then made a bad decision to force Robin into the mental ward against her will – and that was right as Sarah was making headway. She’d asked Robin to think it over, whether or not she thought she should check herself in. She knew that if Robin went in voluntarily, it would be better for her. Now Robin’s trust in Sarah – and her father! – is completely ruined. Not only that, but Sarah was PISSED at Dr. Charles. She stormed into his office and yelled at him. Whew! Can’t wait to see where THAT story takes us tonight!

On tonight’s episode, “White Butterflies,” Dr. Rhodes challenges Dr. Charles and other hospital staff over the proper treatment for Robin. Dr. Manning seeks help from Det. Halstead (guest star Jesse Lee Soffer) when a sensitive case involving a young girl turns into a crime. Dr. Choi and April work together on a conflicting case. Meanwhile, Goodwin helps a friend in distress and, after eagerly awaiting, the doctors are surprised to learn who the new med resident is when match day finally arrives.

See the fireworks between Dr. Rhodes and Dr. Charles tonight on NBC at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Big Bang Theory, MasterChef: Junior, Beat Bobby Flay, Farmers’ Market Flip, & Impractical Jokers.
