Once Upon a Time - Poor Unfortunate Soul

The search for the mysterious Author continues in an episode that features a pair of storylines involving Ursula (Merrin Dungey) and her connection to Hook (Colin O’Donoghue). While the flashbacks focus on the pair’s previous meeting and Ursula loosing her most precious gift, the present day storyline centers on Hook attempting to make amends for his previous actions and, in so doing, learning just what Ursula, Cruella De Vil (Victoria Smurfit), Maleficent (Kristin Bauer van Straten), and Rumpelstiltskin (Robert Carlyle) are truly after.

Perception - Run

Premiering in the summer of 2012 TNT’s Perception was an intriguing premise of casting Eric McCormack as a schizophrenic consultant for the FBI who would work through a case by discussing it with hallucinatory figments of his imagination. McCormack and Rachael Leigh Cook, as the professor’s former student turned FBI agent, helped sell the murder-of-the-week which often involved Dr. Daniel Pierce (McCormack) diagnosising an unusual mental condition that would often exonerate one suspect and eventually help lead the FBI to the true culprit of the crime.

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. - One of Us

While Coulson (Clark Gregg) calls in outside help to evaluate Skye (Chloe Bennet) in the wake of learning about her transformation and occasional earthquake side-effects, Cal Zebo (Kyle MacLachlan) scrubs the bottom of the barrel to enlist the help of some D-list villains (Drea de Matteo, Geo Corvera, Ric Sarabia, Jeff Daniel Phillips) to cause Coulson and his team a relatively small amount of trouble. (Seriously, with the list of all the super-powered baddies S.H.I.E.L.D. has ever come across this is the best he could do?)

Oh, except this time she’s a zombie.

The Flash - Out of Time

The Flash delivers a game-changing episode including removing any doubt as to the identity of the Reverse-Flash, allowing Iris (Candice Patton) to admit her feelings for Barry (Grant Gustin) and discover his secret, and deliver the death of a major character. Or did it? The show’s creators have been teasing us for some time that time travel will play an important role of the show’s run and that all begins with “Out of Time,” first when Barry catches a glimpse of another version of himself and later as the character discovers he has been offered a second chance to change the events the past day and alter the timeline.

Pretty Little Liars - I'm a Good Girl, I Am

Paving the way for next week’s season finale (and promised big reveal), Alison‘s (Sasha Pieterse) comes to a close and the remaining Liars are set to join her in prison (although what they are actually being charged with is unclear). Alison’s guilty verdict isn’t a surprise but her insistence to avoid the truth like the plague (such as explaining the archery trophy which, as bizarre as it seems, was the final nail in her coffin with the jury) when it could have possibly changed the outcome is confounding. Nor does Alison get any help from Mike (Cody Allen Christian) as Aria (Lucy Hale) takes steps to protect her bother leading to Mike, Ezra (Ian Harding), and Caleb (Tyler Blackburn) into an ambush by A.

“She’s just like me, only better.”

Castle - Hong Kong Hustle

It’s been awhile since we’ve seen a jealous Kate Beckett (Stana Katic) but that’s just what “Hong Kong Hustle” delivers when Beckett crosses paths with the impressive Inspector Zhang (Linda Park) while investigating a homicide in Central Park. Initially a suspect, who makes Ryan (Seamus Dever) and Esposito (Jon Huertas) look foolish with very little effort, once her identity is confirmed Zhang joins the official investigation into the death of her oldest friend who got himself in over his head.
