May 9, 2013


May 09--The networks are wrapping up a fair number of shows with season finales this weekend. So set that DVR.

(Next week, they announce what shows will be returning for the fall. So get ready.)

Our moment

Marley and Unique have a heart-to-heart talk; Rachel gets a callback for her Broadway audition; New Directions goes to regionals; and Patty Duke, Meredith Baxter and season 11 "American Idol" runner-up Jessica Sanchez guest-star in the season finale of "Glee," airing at 8 p.m. Thursday on Fox, channel 23, cable 5.

Save the day

Reese and Finch team up with unexpected allies to save The Machine from Root and the mysterious international organization Decima. And, as the POI team faces off against old and new enemies, the nature of Finch's relationship with former partner Nathan Ingram is revealed along with the reason he started saving The Machine's irrelevant numbers in the first place. It's all in the season finale of "Person of Interest," airing at 8:01 p.m. Thursday on CBS, channel 6.

Strange bedfellows

Sheriff Lamb and Savino join forces to take out Porter Gainsley, the man responsible for putting Katherine in the hospital and who Lamb believes killed his wife, on the season finale of "Vegas," airing at 8 p.m. Friday on CBS, channel 6. Also, Jack decides to propose to Mia, and Dixon and Yvonne take their relationship to the next level.

Old home week-end

Kristin Wiig, who was a cast member from 2005 to 2012, returns to "Saturday Night Live" this weekend with musical guest Vampire Weekend. The live show airs at 10:29 p.m. Saturday on NBC, channel 2, cable 9. The hilarious Wiig starred in the hit comedy film "Bridesmaids" and has, among her upcoming films, the summer's animated sequel "Despicable Me 2," plus "Girl Most Likely," and "Anchorman: The Legend Continues."

On till morning

The residents of Storybrooke prepare for the end on the season finale of "Once Upon a Time," airing at 7 p.m. Sunday on ABC, channel 8. Greg and Tamara detonate the trigger Regina placed within the curse, and it means annihilation is imminent for everyone. Plus, Mr. Gold grieves over the loss of his son Bae/Neal and, back to the past, Hook rescues young Bae from the ocean and realizes the Lost Boys are in hot pursuit of the boy.

The truth

It will take two hours to wrap up the riveting season of "Revenge," staring at 8 p.m. Sunday on ABC, channel 8.

In the first hour, a series of dangerous events has been set in motion, according to ABC, and it all comes to a head in one catastrophic moment, changing everyone's lives forever. In the second hour, the devastation leads to a death that sends shockwaves down the shoreline and forces Emily to take a hard look at the truth and the reality of her path of revenge.
