I’m loving seeing the Scorpion team stranded on the deserted island after their plane crash landed while on the way to a job-slash-honeymoon for Happy & Toby. Unfortunately, the pilot was injured – his arm was trapped, which led to compression syndrome. If they simply pried his arm loose from the wreckage, the poison that had built up would be free to travel through his bloodstream and would kill him. So Toby “MacGyvered” his way to building basically a filter using things from the plane and the island, and they were able to save the pilot’s life and his arm. The team tried to get the attention of a passing ship, but even with the flare they sent off, the ship didn’t see them or turn around. And since they figured out the EMP sent the plane off course without the pilot realizing, they know they’re VERY far from where they should have been and not in a highly trafficked area, and help may not be coming anytime soon, if at all.

Sylvester is having the hardest time with their situation. He was actually very un-Sly-like last week, much less scared and anxious, since he was sure they were going to die and therefore wasn’t afraid of it since he felt it was a foregone conclusion. And one of the funniest parts of the episode was Walter trying to be all lovey-dovey with Paige. He kept calling her different pet names and basically just being too sugary sweet. At first it kind of annoyed Paige, but she realized that it was just the only way he knew to react to his feelings, since they’re new to him. It was all very sweet and funny.

Tonight is the season finale. The team’s been stranded for three weeks. I can’t wait to see how it’s affecting everyone, especially Sylvester. The previews for him look awesomely funny!

On tonight’s episode, “Scorp Family Robinson,” three weeks after they crash land on a deserted island, tensions run high for Team Scorpion when they must battle to overcome their relationship obstacles in order to be rescued.

Find out how the team overcomes these obstacles tonight on CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Kids BBQ Championship & Man With a Plan.

Last week’s episode of Better Call Saul focused on the Jimmy’s hearing, but before we saw the brothers go head to head in the court room, we got a flashback to a happier time for the siblings. In the scene, we saw Chuck trying to hide his illness during a dinner with his ex-wife and Jimmy assisting his brother in this ruse. But in the present-day courtroom, those times were long gone and Chuck was going for the jugular, hoping to get his brother’s law license revoked. However, Jimmy wasn’t going to go down without a fight. He invited Chuck’s ex-wife to the courtroom to throw him off by forcing him to talk about his illness in front of her. Jimmy also had another trick up his sleeve… He had arranged for someone to secretly plant a battery on Chuck in order to prove that his allergy to electronics was psychosomatic. When Jimmy revealed that the battery had been in Chuck’s jacket the entire time, Chuck lost it and started yelling at the court like a mad man, giving Jimmy exactly the reaction he had hoped for.

Did Jimmy do enough to swing the judgement in his favor, or is he still in danger of losing his law license? Will Chuck’s law firm oust him for being mentally unstable on the stand? Is there anything that could possibly repair the relationship between these brothers? I’m always impressed by how engaging this series can be, and I can’t wait to see what happens next!

On tonight’s episode, “Off Brand,” Jimmy embarks on a new endeavor. Meanwhile, Chuck pushes himself to the limit; and Nacho finds himself ensnared in a power struggle.

To learn about Jimmy’s new endeavor, tune in to AMC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Quantico, Man With a Plan, Gotham, Supergirl, Jane the Virgin, Young & Hungry, and Baby Daddy.
