Tonight is the season finale of both The Goldbergs and its spinoff, Schooled on ABC. This season on The Goldbergs, Erica has been lost, after she dropped out of college and her dreams of becoming a professional singer fell flat. Just in the last few weeks, she made the decision to go back to college. And Barry, who has been a goof his whole life but who finally realized he wants to be a doctor, finally put his butt in gear and did what he needed to do to apply to colleges. Last week, they found out both had been accepted into Penn, and that caused a lot of stress between the two. Barry was happy because he thought it was going to be his time to shine without being in Erica’s shadow, but Erica was excited because she’d been worried Penn wouldn’t accept her after her year of failure. In the end, they decided the campus was big enough for both of them. Meanwhile last week, Adam told Beverly he hated her after she tried to get him to pose with her for a Mother’s Day photo after Barry and Erica wiggled their way out of it. Adam went to see Willow with Dave Kim instead, and Beverly told him she was done with him. She didn’t wake him for school and didn’t remind him to wear his glasses, so he was late and his lazy eye creeped everyone out. In the end, of course, they made up. Tonight is Barry’s graduation. They made it work with Erica after she graduated, but how will they conceivably make it where Adam is the only kid left? It hasn’t been renewed yet, but it should be, so it’ll be interesting to see where they take it!

Then on Schooled, it’s taken a while, but Lainey’s turned out to be a decent teacher, even though I’m still not sure how she was qualified to be hired in the first place! Last week, Coach Mellor and Ms. Taraborelli were at odds when a computer was brought in and they talked about putting together a school website. Glascott tried to bring them together, and in the end, it all worked out and a great website went up. But also, Lainey worked with a female student on a song for the talent show, but the girl was really shy and could only sing alone if Lainey were there. Unfortunately, Lainey was planning to skip the talent show in order to perform at a local show in order to get noticed herself. It was no surprise when she showed up at the talent show just in time for her student. And CB was going to tell her how he felt, but when he and Lainey walked out of the school together…Barry was suddenly there to surprise her. That’ll be interesting going into tonight’s season finale, especially since the show hasn’t been renewed and it could go either way! I love CB, but I mean…is there anyone who isn’t rooting for Barry and Lainey??

On tonight’s The Goldbergs, “Breakin’,” when Adam unintentionally lets it slip that Barry never completed his community service requirement, the brothers join together to throw the greatest breakdancing battle in the history of William Penn. Geoff’s stress levels are at an all-time high, so Erica makes an adult decision and plans for them to follow the Grateful Dead all summer. Finally, it’s the end of an era when the JTP graduates from high school.

Then on tonight’s Schooled, “Dr. Barry,” after initially trying to sabotage him, CB works with Barry and the JTP to help him win back Lainey’s heart. Meanwhile, Glascott faces removal as principal after a prank damages William Penn Academy.

Don’t miss the (hopefully just season) finales tonight on ABC starting at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Chicago Med, The Amazing Race, Chicago Fire, Dinner Takes All, Gone, Guy’s Grocery Games, Modern Family, Single Parents, Best Room Wins, Chicago PD, SEAL Team, & Whiskey Cavalier.

I am so happy that Netflix picked up Lucifer after it was canceled by FOX, because we all need this show in our lives. Over the three seasons on FOX, we watched as Lucifer and Chloe did the “will they or won’t they” flirting game, but when we left them in the third season finale, it was even more on the edge because Lucifer finally revealed his true Devil face to Chloe while he was saving her life. I am unsure whether or not she’ll be able to accept him as he is, but time will tell.

This season on, another major bump in that road will arrive in the form of Eve – as in the-first-woman-created Eve – which seems to be a way to distract Lucifer from Chloe. Other new characters: a holy man of sorts in the form of Father Kinley and Vinessa Vidotto as yet another angel, Remiel.

Check out season four on Netflix now!

I’ll also be watching SEAL Team, Chicago PD, Chicago Fire, Chicago Med, Whiskey Cavalier, Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists, The Amazing Race, and Single Parents.

    Allow me to answer your question! William Penn is an independent Quaker school based on my actual school. In that system, there are no qualifications to become a teacher – especially when it comes to music or the arts. This is how Lainey became a teacher there when the slot was open.
