‘Justified’’s 6th and final season takes aim at its fourth 2015 installment in “The Trash and the Snake,” as Raylan's pursuit of the mysterious Avery Markham (Sam Elliott) crosses paths with an old friend, while Boyd attempts an explosive solution to his banking problems, and Ava bristles under Katherine Hale (Mary Steenburgen)'s watchful eye.

It’s somewhat ironic that an episode featuring this much Firestorm would leave me a little cold. But that’s where I am tonight with ‘The Flash,’ which did enough to keep things moving along even if its actual content was all over the map both narratively and tonally. There were about three or four solid episodes in “The Nuclear Man,” all fighting for the same space. But whereas the battleground over Ronnie Raymond’s body yielded a literal explosion, this episode yielded few fireworks.

‘Parks and Recreation’ Review: “Ms. Ludgate-Dwyer Goes to Washington; Pie-Mary”

‘Parks and Recreation’ returns tonight with two all-new episodes, taking Leslie and April to Washington in the first, and skillfully tackling feminism in the second. But overall, both episodes are essentially about the same thing: giving someone the room to forge their own path and accepting them for whatever they choose. We’re definitely on a roll in the final season—it’s just too bad that NBC won’t spread these episodes out more to let us take our time to enjoy the farewell.

‘Girls’ Review: “Cubbies”

“How do you know if you’ve made the right decision?” That’s the question at the heart of this week’s ‘Girls,’ which sees Hannah struggling to figure out if she belongs in Iowa, while Shoshanna has a hard time finding the perfect job back in New York. All we want to know is if we’ve made the right choice, but it’s impossible to know until the choice has been made.

‘Justified’’s 6th and final season takes aim with its third 2015 installment in “Noblesse Oblige,” as Raylan and the Marshals pressure Ava to deliver more substantial intel, while Boyd learns the truth behind Tiger Hawk Security and their employer, Avery Markham (Sam Elliott).

‘Agent Carter’ Review: “The Iron Ceiling”

Early on in “The Iron Ceiling,” Jarvis tells Peggy that she’ll never get her male co-workers to respect her, to which she replies that she’ll just have to make them do it. And that’s just what Peggy does in tonight’s new episode of ‘Agent Carter,’ for it’s only her Russian expertise and code-cracking abilities that can help the SSR on their mission to pursue Leviathan and Tony Stark, and it’s only Peggy who’s pals with the 107th, aka the Howling Commandos (they hate that name).

‘The Flash’ Review: “Crazy For You”

Bouncing back nicely after last week’s subpar episode, tonight’s episode of ‘The Flash’ didn’t rewrite the rules of television but provided an entertaining hour all the same. “Crazy For You” is the type of episode this show does well when not focused exclusively on the show’s über-mythology: It provided a villain-of-the-week that tied into the emotional states of the characters, deployed some inventive action sequences, and then made you cry a little at the show’s latest open-hearted expression of love between two people. Not that I cried, or anything. GORILLA GRODD 4 LYFE, RIGHT?
