Better Call Saul isn’t a thriller in the categorical sense, but tonight’s episode is wonderfully thrilling. Watching Jimmy piece together his first major case and swing into full-on respectable lawyer action is enervating and offers a particular level of suspense. But it’s not just the exciting possibility of a class action lawsuit coming together that offers up something substantial in “Rico,” but the interesting parallels between Jimmy and Chuck as they’re both invigorated by the case.

‘Girls’ Season Finale Review: ‘Home Birth’

HBO
Of every Girls season finale, “Home Birth” feels the most final — major changes and life plans happen in the blink of an eye; new lives enter this world and familiar faces fade; and perhaps what makes this episode feel so final is the “six months later” coda, which feels just as unnecessary here as it does in just about any other film or television show. That’s not to say that the conclusion doesn’t have its charms, but it might have been best saved for next season, given the powerful sequence that preceded it.

The Walking Dead proved with Sunday’s penultimate Season 5 installment that Alexandria’s walls do little to keep out the drama, but will next Sunday’s finale see attempts to “Conquer” on either side? AMC has released the first official clip from next week’s installment, and Rick’s group isn’t looking particularly welcome after the latest bloodbath.

‘The Flash’ Review: ‘Out of Time’

Through the first fifty minutes of tonight’s installment of The Flash, I was thinking it was a middling-to-OK episode of television. Way too much love quadrangle baloney, way too much Joe trying to go alone even though he should know better, way too much of the show starting the slow burn of Cisco figuring out Wells’ true end game. And then the last ten minutes happened and everything changed.
