The Sara Carter story line on NCIS was a good one last week. It showed a sweet side of Reeves, when we learned about him and his mom being homeless for a bit when he was young and how he now helps out at a home for homeless vets and their kids. It all ended up being about a mother trying to protect her daughter from pain, since Sara’s mother was trying to find out where her daughter’s migraine pain meds disappeared to and in the process realized there was a big prescription drug theft ring going on and that’s why she was killed. But it was good for Sara to finally get some peace about her mother’s murder.

Last week was also Pauley Perrette’s next-to-last episode. I thought we’d get more of an Abby-centric story, so I was disappointed with the little Abby we got. Sure, it was fun seeing the others buttering her up to try to snag the second spot for dinner at a new ice restaurant that she won reservations for. But until the very end of the episode, it was just another normal ep for Abby. Of course, the end… After she picked Reeves to go with her to dinner, they were walking away when a guy with a gun demanded they give him their wallet & purse. Reeves immediately complied, but Abby, with her big heart, tried to tell the guy that she could and wanted to help him. Reeves gave him Abby’s purse, but the guy still got off a shot when the screen went black.

So did Abby get shot? Reeves? Did it miss them both? Surely they wouldn’t actually kill Abby off, would they? And will we finally get an Abby & Gibbs scene this season?! I guess we’ll find out tonight!

On tonight’s episode, “Two Steps Back,” when evidence reveals an NCIS team member is a hitman’s latest target, the team must search through old case files to determine who is seeking vengeance.

See if Abby’s actually the hitman’s target tonight on CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Roseanne, Chicago Med, Chopped, & NCIS: New Orleans.

It has been a roller coaster of a season on Bull, and tonight it comes to an end. We’ve seen Dr. Bull defy his team, struggle with his personal relationships, and face his inner demons. Last episode, he got arrested for being drunk and disorderly – a situation brought on by finding out his ex-wife is getting remarried. While in the holding cell, Bull met a young man he took an interest in. He offered his assistance if ever he was needed. The next thing the team knows, they are representing the young man in a murder case where the state is seeking the death penalty. When the episode ended, the fate of the young man and Bull’s sobriety were both hanging in the balance.

On tonight’s season finale, “Death Sentence,” Bull’s team is rocked when their client, Elliott Miles, is found guilty of murder, and they must regroup as the trial enters the penalty phase in order to prevent him from being sentenced to death. But when new evidence emerges that could prove Elliott’s innocence, Bull must find a way to present it in court without being found in contempt. Also, Marissa faces hard truths about her relationship with Bull.

To see how the team navigates this difficult situation, tune in to CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching NCIS, NCIS: New Orleans, Roseanne, Lethal Weapon, Chicago Med, Chopped, and Rise.
