Backstrom is back after a three week hiatus with a lead-in by the ever popular crimedy Bones. Hart Hanson created both shows so the possibility that the Bones crowd might give Backstrom a try is high. However, these two shows are very different and will appeal to some, but not all. Backstrom's variety of crazy is an acquired taste. 

"Give Till It Hurts" brought several surprises to viewers. Some good, some hard to swallow. We get to see Backstrom decked out in a tux at a swanky fundraiser where he runs into Amy, his ex-future wife. It's always good when Amy is around because although these two have history and issues, they have even more chemistry. Backstrom's problem is that he cannot figure out how to interact with Amy without totally effing it up. (*face palm*) Every single time they are together, Backstrom assumes too much and goes in for an unwelcome kiss. Amy is repeatedly disappointed and not a little disgusted with his presumptuousness. (Though she secretly enjoys the kisses.) The good news is that Amy is the Star of Bethlehem. Now, if Backstrom could just get his head out of his ---.

It was nice to see Liz finally out of the super nosy judge's hot seat and participating in tracking down bad guys in "The Longevity Initiative." She's finished with the interrogation that doubled as a counseling session, and joins her team in their journey to find Blacklister #97 who preys on the disabled as his lab rats. Julian Powell is the mad scientist who is on a quest to eliminate mortality, seeking a way for humans to live forever.
 
Tom Keen is back, seemingly for the rest of the season, but he wasn't performing any eleventh hour rescues of Liz. No, he was too concerned with saving himself from a crop of new/old enemies who want to see the chameleon dead. So we were back to The Blacklist formula that we've come to expect - Liz seeking to bring down evil and Red sort of helping out but with his own ulterior motives in play.

Not gonna lie. I found this episode of Grey's Anatomy to be less than stellar. Perhaps that's harsh, but in a season that's been so exceptionally good, "With or Without You" was not. Instead, it was disjointedly presented and unevenly written. Having said that, despite the fragmentation, we got to know Owen's mom a lot better tonight. We also finally learned what went down in Washington, D.C. between Derek and his fellow.

After 104 agonizing days of winter hiatus (a.k.a. The Longest Stinkin' Hiatus in History) Bones quietly returns to our screens with "The Psychic in the Soup." With an introspective nod to the dearly departed, Dr. Lance "The Baby Duck" Sweets, and the delightful return of parapsychologist Ms. Avalon Harmonia, portrayed by pop-icon Cyndi Lauper, Bones  denies viewers the plot points Executive Producer Stephen Nathan and Emily Deschanel judiciously tantalized us with leading up to the premiere. Promised were several juicy upsets including a surprise pregnancy, a hefty dose of addiction and deceit, an enigmatic resurgence of Pelant and a life and/or relationship-threatening storyline for Cam and Arastoo. What the spank, Bones Fairies? 

If fans thought any of those major dramas were slated for "The Psychic in the Soup" they are woefully mistaken. After all, how do you follow-up the shock and devastation of "The Conspiracy in the Corpse," the tragedy of human trafficking in "The Lost Love in the Foreign Land" or the divinity of "The 200th in the 10th" from the first half of the season? Instead Bones serves up an aperitif prior to the real meal deal which begins in the next coupe of episodes as promised.
