If We Controlled Your Remote… 5/17/17

Tonight, ABC’s Wednesday comedies have their season finales, and for two of tonight’s shows, that means high school graduations. On The Goldbergs, it’s Erica who’s graduating, and on Modern Family, both Manny and Luke will be finishing up their high school experiences. Both of these series have already been picked up for next season (Modern Family for two more seasons!). I can’t imagine these shows without Erica, Luke, or Manny, but I’m sure the writers will find some way to ensure that these characters’ post-graduation activities cause them to remain close to home. I always enjoy these family comedy season finales, as there’s usually some sort of big family event tied into them. However, I will really miss these shows over the summer!

On tonight’s The Goldbergs finale, “Graduation Day,” graduation day is quickly approaching, and Erica cannot wait to get out of the house, until it dawns on her how much Beverly’s love means to her. Meanwhile, Barry’s plans for himself and Lainey turn to dust; and Dana makes a surprise visit just as Adam and Jackie officially become a couple.

Later, on tonight’s Modern Family finale, “The Graduates,” Javier shows up for Manny’s high-school graduation and takes him out for a wild night of celebration, but Jay must step in to pick up the pieces. Meanwhile, the rest of the Pritchett clan get ready for Luke and Manny’s big day.

To check out the graduations, tune in to ABC at 8/7c & 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Speechless, Downward Dog, Designated Survivor, Survivor, The 100, Fargo, and Archer.

Last week’s Chicago PD was a really intense one, and it was especially hard on Erin. The team got wind of a live video of a man tied up and being beaten and then burned alive. They easily tracked the location, and when they got there, they saw the word “Pedophile” written on the wall beside the victim. Unfortunately, it turned out that the man was recently released from prison after spending 7 years locked up for…statutory rape. He was an 18-year-old guy who was convicted of statutory rape against a 16-year-old girl…who he was in a relationship with. He was black. She was white. It was a mess and a horrible thing. Apparently a group of people up in Canada were “outing” sexual predators, recording and confronting them, giving out their names and addresses. That made its way to Chicago, where a Neo-Nazi-type racist did the same to the victim. Another man was also killed that way. They figured out that the man who was doing the killings was actually a pedophile himself. He was going after the sexual predators because he hated what he himself was. Unfortunately, what prompted him to start killing was when he kidnapped a 10-year-old boy…and though the team found the boy, it was too late – he was already dead.

Erin had a really rough episode. First, her mother, Bunny, showed up out of the blue and gave her a pretty pearl bracelet. She said it was her mother’s and she was giving it to Erin. Bunny never does anything without an agenda, and Jay tried to remind Erin of that, but she basically told him to butt out. Voight overheard, and he then split the partners/former flames up, pairing Erin with newbie Hailey Upton and Jay with Al. Then when Erin and Hailey had the killer pedophile in the box, Erin hit him with her gun, stuck it in his mouth, and threatened to shoot him if he didn’t tell her where he left the boy. Somehow, the Chief knew something was going on, and he raced into the room. Now Erin’s in trouble with the review board going into tonight’s finale. The preview made it look baaaaad for her, so we’ll see!

On tonight’s episode, “Fork in the Road,” when Erin Lindsay receives a panicked call from her mother Bunny (guest star Markie Post) whose boyfriend had just been shot, she must figure out the best way to approach the situation, as her mother is now a murder suspect. The case opens up when a group of high school students OD, and the drugs in question relate back to the situation with Bunny. In addition to her mother’s issues, Erin finds herself up against the review board dealing with consequences of her actions.

Find out how Erin handles all the issues tonight on NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Blindspot, The Goldbergs, Cooks vs Cons, Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders, Law & Order: SVU, & Modern Family.
