What’s new tonight:
Castle (ABC) Season Finale: Anyone else noticed Detective Beckett’s (Stana Katic) gradual aesthetic evolution from all-business polyester cop to stripper with a badge? Just me? Anyway, in the Season 4 finale, Beckett and Castle (Nathan Fillion) finally track down her mother’s killer. Or work a bachelor party—either way, I’m there.
Chuck (NBC) Season Finale: So last week’s action-packed penultimate episode pulled Chuck out of an unfocused, months-long nosedive—is that any reason to believe the season (but not, as feared, series) finale is going to put it all back on track? Wouldn’t bet a Subway punch card on it, but see you on Fridays this fall, Chuck.
How I Met Your Mother, Hawaii Five-0 (CBS) Season Finales: Getting an ID on HIMYM’s “Mother” is about as likely as getting a Hawaii Five-O episode on Maui. Ain’t gonna happen … but, dare to dream.
More season finales tonight:
Mad Love, Mike & Molly (CBS); 90210, Gossip Girl (The CW)
Also new tonight:
Dancing With the Stars (ABC); The Event, Law & Order: LA (NBC); House, The Chicago Code (Fox); Sanctuary (Syfy); The Real Housewives of New Jersey (Bravo); The Secret Life of the American Teenager (ABC Family); WWE Raw (USA); The Hard Times of RJ Berger (MTV); Nurse Jackie, United States of Tara (Showtime); Conan (TBS)
Preview: Can Chuck save Sarah in tonight’s season finale? Yeah, probably …
