houdini-doyle-necromanteion

After briefly stopping home to bury his mother, Houdini (Michael Weston) joins Doyle (Stephen Mangan) and Adelaide (Rebecca Liddiard) in Canada where a murder suspect (Lara Jean Chorostecki) insists her husband was killed by a poltergeist. Also present are a spirtual medium and Thomas Edison (Peter Outerbridge) who hopes to use his invention, a Necromanteion, to speak to the recently deceased from across the veil. While Houdini dismisses the entire premise, and derides Edison over such a ridiculous invention, both Adelaide and Doyle suspect their friend has conflicting purposes for leaving his family to join this particular murder scene.

While searching for a weapon to stop Dominator (Noël Wells) from destroying the galaxy, Wander (Jack McBrayer) and Sylvia (April Winchell) visit the shop of the wizard Neckbeard (Seth Morris) where Wander becomes instantly fascinated with an entire planet of little Bitties living inside one of Neckbeard’s artifiacts. Unable to leave the globe alone, as both Neckbeard and Sylvia order him to do.

Choosing to save the Bitties universe rather than their own, Wander and Sylvia continue their wanderings while searching for something to stop Dominator and save the galaxy.

preacher-south-will-rise-again

Jesse (Dominic Cooper) is feeling pretty good about himself. His ability to turn Odin Quincannon (Jackie Earle Haley) towards God has made him the town’s new hero (even if neither he, nor the town, see how “well” this turns out for Odin’s potential business partners). Continuing to use his gift to increase the size of his flock and help with the questions brought to him by his parishioners, Jesse even goes so far as to bring some peace to Eugene (Ian Colletti) by forcing Terri Loach (Bonita Friedericy) to forgive the man for her daughter’s vegetative state. Of course the final scene of Jesse meeting DeBlanc (Tom Brooke) and Fiore (Anatol Yusef) for the first time, and learning what he has inside him may be far more complicated than what he believes, may just damage the preacher’s calm.

person-of-intrest-return-0-1

After five seasons and more than 100 episodes Person of Interest comes to a close with “Return 0.” With both The Machine and Samaritan slowly dying, our ragtag group of heroes have one last mission: destroy the back-up copy of Samaritan to prevent it from ever returning. For Reese (Jim Caviezel) and Finch (Michael Emerson) this means breaking into the Federal Reserve and infecting Samaritan’s air-gaped servers with the ICE-9 virus. For Shaw (Sarah Shahi) and Fusco (Kevin Chapman) this means one final shoot-out in the subway. And for The Machine it means chasing Samaritan into space and finding a way to defeat the rival’s final copy aboard a satellite once and for all.

houdini-and-doyle-strigoi

A threat against Bram Stoker (Paul Ritter) and the murder of his housekeeper forces Arthur Conan Doyle (Stephen Mangan) to stand-up for his friend while Harry Houdini (Michael Weston) and Constable Adelaide Stratton (Rebecca Liddiard) suspect the Dracula author may be the killer they are looking for.

beauty-and-the-beast-down-for-the-count

As Catherine (Kristin Kreuk) gets a promotion to work for Homeland Security, Tess (Nina Lisandrello) sulks over losing both her best friend and detective to the Feds and the fact that her fiance has been keeping a huge secret from her. Following the clues left at the crime scene of a dead bounty hunter, Catherine and Vincent (Jay Ryan) work their way back to the head of the local fight club who the wrongly believe may be behind the bounty on Vincent. Of course over the course of the episode Vincent will expose his secret to a crowded bar room of disreputable individuals as well as the man he helps put in jail to close out the episode. But, hey, I’m sure the guy who was running an illegal fight club won’t hold a grudge.

wander-over-yonder-the-sick-day

When Wander (Jack McBrayer) gets sick, Sylvia (April Winchell) struggles to get her best friend to take it easy and rest while attempting to take care of his long list of chores which include hitting Lord Hater‘s (Keith Ferguson) snooze button and preventing the universe from coming to an end. “The Sick Day” has a simple premise of Wander learning how to let someone else help him for a change (although it takes quite a bit of his increasingly sickly attempts to help for the message to finally sink in). As for Sylvia, she proves capable of stepping in to Wander’s shoes (although she is quite surprised by the number of regular duties her best friend performs without her).

person-of-interest-exe

The penultimate episode of Person of Interest takes Finch (Michael Emerson) into the heart of the enemy and to the precipice of a decision of how far he’s willing to go to destroy Samaritan. Armed with one of the world’s most dangerous computer viruses and the need to protect his friends before they face the same fate of Root (Amy Acker), the only decision Harold has to make is would he be willing to harm his own artificial intelligence to stop Samaritan? To help its creator make his decision, The Machine offers a series of simulations of what his life, and the lives of his friends, would have been like if he had never created an artificial intelligence.
