The latest episode of Agents of SHIELD serves as the build-up to the epic two-hour movie-like season 2 finale, so it's no wonder that it's mostly expository in nature. Gotta set up the pins before you can knock them down.

But that doesn't mean that "Scars" is devoid of shocking moments, because even I don't see the dramatic ending unfolding the way that it does.

iZombie has always balanced the act of being an interpersonal drama and a supernatural murder mystery show. The split is usually about 50/50. In "Dead Air," there's murder, but the drive of the action is Liv interacting with her friends. Liv's brains forces her into an uncomfortable but very interesting conversation -- and iZombie does nothing but benefit from this change of approach. 

Liv's weekly brains make her go all armchair therapist routine. It's a change that makes her quite annoying as a person, but it's quite fun to watch. Liv gets all involved and critical when it comes to her friend's relationship and turns the gaze back on herself.

This episode of The Flash, "Grodd Lives," proves that Iris West does not deserve the hate, and Grodd makes his first appearance as the CGI gorilla that eats up most of The Flash's budget (I think).

The previous episode of NCIS was a heavy one, to be sure. The team investigated the death of a Navy Ensign, Janine Wilt, who was a Cyber Warfare Engineer. Wilt was murdered after she blocked a chat room to protect a high school student, Layna Korkmaz, on the basketball team that she coached. Korkmaz was invited to join a chat room recruiting teens to find "their calling" and spewing messages of hate. The team located one of these students, Brad Simek, on a public bus with a homemade bomb. Gibbs had almost talked him off the bus when the teen ran toward the back of the bus and it exploded.

We will see the fall-out from this awful event in this episode of NCIS, "The Lost Boys," as the team looks into an international effort by terrorists to recruit children through chat rooms and the Internet. What a scary, and timely, storyline.
