The Halloween heist episodes of Brooklyn Nine-Nine are always fun, and tonight, there’s a special heist episode in the same vein, which is why it’s my pick tonight. Last week, Gina contacted Jake and asked him and Terry to come to her place. She’s become an internet superstar “influencer” and hadn’t been in touch much at all since leaving the 99, so Terry was a little upset about it. Jake tried to convince him to give her a chance. When they got there, they had to wait while she filmed some weird “Gina as Moses” bit, but then she told them that she had an appearance coming up and the people behind it were threatening to close it down if she didn’t get a police presence because she’d gotten some death threats. During the guarding, Jake learned Gina had canceled on drinks with them for work and got upset. But in the end, after Gina was stabbed in the back by the husband of a woman who took Gina’s “advice” and left him because he concentrated more on parkour than her, she and Jake made up. Meanwhile, the side stories were Holt convincing Boyle that his son was a genius (when it turned out Nikolaj was just drawing a superhero logo and not solving a big math problem) and Amy trying to convince Rosa she could ask for help when she was trying to handle everything on her own with both of her hands out of commission. Both were fun story lines.

On tonight’s episode, “Cinco de Mayo,” in order to distract Terry from the stress of his upcoming lieutenant’s exam, Jake, Holt, and the squad decide to hold the annual Halloween heist on a new date, Cinco de Mayo.

See who wins this new heist tonight on NBC at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Big Bang Theory, Beat Bobby Flay, Impractical Jokers, & S.W.A.T.

Station 19 definitely knows how to make me a puddle of emotions lately, and last week’s episode was a whole box of Kleenex event. We watched as Ripley struggled through heart problems, trying to talk to Vic before he got treatment so she would know he wanted to marry her, but things took a terrible turn for the worse. Ripley was actually poisoned by hydrofluoric acid from the fire in the coffee factory, and with his heart problems, he was far too weak to fight it. In the end, Vic made it to his bedside to say goodbye, and the entire department now knows about her relationship with Ripley, so that’s bound to be an issue for her in the future. For now we will just watch as her team members try to keep Vic together because she just lost the man she loves. I cried the entire last half of the episode, and I suspect I’m going to cry in the next few episodes as well.

On tonight’s episode, “For Whom the Bell Tolls,” following a life-threatening situation that left the future of a member of Station 19 unclear, the crew gathers to face the outcome. Andy and Ben respond to a man impaled by a chandelier. Meanwhile, Station 19 is called upon to organize shipments of supplies and assist with wildfires in Los Angeles.

To see how the station is affected by recent events, tune in to ABC at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching The Big Bang Theory, Young Sheldon, Grey’s Anatomy, S.W.A.T., Law & Order: SVU, For the People, and Beat Bobby Flay.
