As I watched last week’s Chicago PD, in that final minute, I texted my husband: Oh shit, oh shit, oh shit!. He immediately responded, sounding worried. I’d scared him. But I was shocked. Olinsky had been stabbed repeatedly, and as he slid to the floor, it didn’t look good. That was, of course, after Voight’s plan with the judge goes awry thanks to Denny Woods, which meant Al didn’t get out on bail. I swear, Woods is one step ahead of them every time! And after Al was denied bail, Voight decided it was time to come clean with Woods. Good for him. He went to Woods’s place and said it was time to make things right, basically telling Woods that he would confess if he got assurances that Olinsky was released from prison and not charged for anything. There was a story about guns and Halstead and Atwater going undercover, and it was a good one, but for the most part, the episode was about Voight and Olinksy and that ongoing story.

So did Al survive? Will Voight learn about the attack before he confesses it all to Woods? Will the Woods/Voight conflict finally come to a head? You’ll find out all that and more with tonight’s season finale.

On tonight’s episode, “Homecoming,” tensions run high as Intelligence seeks justice for Olinsky after he’s stabbed in prison. Antonio’s loyalty is put to the test and Woods looks to take down Voight once and for all.

Find out what happened with Al, Woods, and Voight tonight on NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Goldbergs, Iron Chef Gauntlet, Modern Family, Property Brothers, SEAL Team, American Housewife, & My Partner Knows Best.

I always enjoy my weekly trip back to the 1980s with The Goldbergs. Last week, Adam won a radio contest to throw out the first pitch at a Philadelphia Phillies game, but he gave it to Barry on the condition that he would play interference whenever Beverly went in for a snuggle. Once Murray heard about Barry’s opportunity, he was so proud and got so blinded by living out his own dreams that he started encouraging and feeding Barry’s delusion that he was going to dazzle the Phillies with his arm. Meanwhile, Erica, her roommate, and Lainey all had their own delusion. They decided that they were going to drop out of college and start a band, The Tangles. However, they didn’t realize that their “original” song was just a rip-off of a Joan Jett tune.

While her band didn’t work out, Erica still decided that college was not for her. How will Murray and Beverly react to this news? And what other crazy adventures will the Goldbergs get up to this week? One of the things I always enjoy about this show is seeing Adam’s excitement over movies and other pop culture things I also enjoyed as a kid, and tonight that’s Spaceballs and Pictionary – and it sounds like there may be a fun special guest who pops up in tonight’s episode (though maybe just his voice).

On tonight’s episode, “Spaceballs,” Adam tries to start a Mel Brooks club after he sees the movie Spaceballs; Jackie mistakes his club advertisement for political satire and puts it in the school paper; Beverly and Pops visit Erica for parents’ weekend; Murray tags along.

I’ll also be watching/recording Alex, Inc., Modern Family, American Housewife, Designated Survivor, Survivor, The Blacklist, The Americans, Archer, The Expanse, and Krypton.
