Shadowhunters- Raising Hell

In a last-ditch effort to restore Clary‘s (Katherine McNamara) memories the Shadowhunters seek out Magnus Bane (Harry Shum Jr.), the High Warlock of Brooklyn and the man responsible for stealing Clary’s memories years ago. Initially reluctant to help, Magnus comes around after the Shadowhunters save him from Valentine‘s (Alan Van Sprang) men. However, the spell to retrieve Clary’s memories from the memory demon who holds them goes awry forcing the young woman to sacrifice any attempt to retrieve them in order to save Jace‘s (Dominic Sherwood) life. Sorry Clary, no answers for your this week.

Wander Over Yonder - The Hole... Lotta Nuthin'

Making the most out of a single gag, Wander (Jack McBrayer) gets stuck (literally and figuratively) with his finger plugging a black hole which threatens to consume an entire constellation of planets. With Sylvia (April Winchell) off on a question to find something to plug the hole, Wander is left on his own… at least until Lord Hater (Keith Ferguson) shows up to enjoy his nemesis’ misery. The simple set-up turns out to be extremely entertaining, especially once Hater’s realizes his attempts to make Wander more miserable have actually backfired and he’s blown a golden opportunity to leave well enough alone.

Even Emily (Shay Mitchell) gets dragged into the craziness which causes complications with a potential new friend/romantic interest (Lulu Brud). During all this the new A, who has yet to be given his/her own moniker, begins to grow bolder in taunting the Liars via text.

The Flash - Fast Lane

While fighting the latest meta-human to appear in Central City, Barry (Grant Gustin) is unaware that Earth-2’s Harrison Wells (Tom Cavanagh) has created a device to slowly siphon off his speed. Moving slightly slower than normal, the Flash is unable to prevent Iris (Candice Patton) to get injured during one of Tar Pit‘s (Marco Grazzini) attacks. However, that injury brings Wally (Keiynan Lonsdale) closer to his sister and causes Wells to come clean about what he’s done in order to save his daughter from Zoom.

Galavant - The One True King (To Unite Them All)

Coming to a more definitive close that last season’s cliffhanger ending, Galavant‘s season finale finds a way to give every character their own moment in the sun this time around including Sid (Luke Youngblood) who arrives with a host of extras to help his friends fight off Madalena‘s (Mallory Jansen) zombie horde. That doesn’t mean that the show doesn’t tease us with what Season Three might hold (sign me up!), but if “The One True King (To Unite Them All)” is the show’s finale it’s a fitting one that let’s the show ride off unknown on a high note.
