And we have premiere dates for a few more CW shows!

The CW has released midseason premiere dates for Containment, the return of Reign, and the premiere of Beauty and the Beast‘s final season.

Containment will be getting iZombie‘s post-The Flash spot starting April 19, the week after the zombie is set to conclude its second season with back to back episodes. Containment follows the lives of Atlanta citizens after a massive outbreak leads to  a vast urban quarantine, forcing those stuck on the inside to fight for their lives while local and federal officials desperately search for a cure.

Critically acclaimed Crazy Ex-Girlfriend will wrap its first season April 18 while Reign takes its Monday night spot beginning April 25.

Rounding out premiere announcements is Beauty and the Beast as it was announced their final season kicks off Thursday, June 2 at 9 p.m.

American Idol
Duets, Part I

Original Air Date: Feb 11, 2016

Usually we get duets in the Idol finale. This year, contestants perform both a solo and a duet before 24 become 14. Six former Idols returned to help the contestants, with each Idol singing two duets.

But the contestants are at a severe disadvantage, as the songs are selected because they are identified with the Idol. Imagine singing “Summertime” with Fantasia, Nick Fradiani’s victory song or a song that Scotty McCreery wrote. So the value of this new element seems more about seeing former Idols than something contestants should be judged on.

Here’s how they did:

How to Get Away with Murder– Recap & Review – What Happened to You, Annalise?

How to Get Away with Murder
What Happened to You, Annalise?

Original Air Date: Feb 11, 2016

Caitlin- Senior Staff Writer

When we left off with How to Get Away with Murder, we went out with the crack of a gunshot. We come back with the non-stop cacophony of everything that comes after. And if you’re not a fan of clinging to the edge of your television in abject horror, I suggest you turn away now.

First, the most important details to recall: after Asher killed Sinclair, Annalise decided to set Catherine up for everything. She wanted her students to shoot her so she could say Catherine did it, but, in persuading them, told Wes Rebecca was dead, causing him to shoot her in the stomach, not the leg.

Grey’s Anatomy
The Sound of Silence

Original Air Date: Feb 11, 2016

Karen Belgrad – Managing Editor
karenbelgrad@thetwocentscorp.com

If you were trying to remember what was going on with Grey’s Anatomy when we left it back in November, you’re not alone. If you did remember and were expecting answers, you’re mostly out of luck, as very little of what happened when we left off is addressed.

Instead this is a Meredith centered episode. Following a brutal attack from a patient in a postictal state, Meredith is a hot mess. Everyone (except Amelia) is involved in her care, even Maggie, because as Alex points out, they’re all family at Grey-Sloan Memorial Hospital.

Criminal Minds
Hostage

Original Air Date: Feb 10, 2016

Caitlin- Senior Staff Writer
caitlin@thetwocentscorp.com

Fair warning: many episodes of Criminal Minds explore the psychology of the perpetrators, exploring the reasons, however unjustified, for why they do what they do. And this week’s unsub does have reasons, but in the end, he’s just plain sick, and this whole episode is just horribly sad.

Three girls are held in a basement with the window locked shut. One is trying to saw through the lock while another frantically tries to dissuade her. The third lies unresponsive on the floor. Just before their captor arrives, the first girl is able to escape, promising the others she’ll get help.

Arrow
Sins of the Father

Original Air Date: Feb 10, 2016

Brianna – Associate Editor
brianna@thetwocentscorp.com

Never has an episode been so aptly named as this week’s Arrow. “Sins of the Father” gets to the core of what has caused so many problems for the team…fathers. A pair that get put to the test and fail in epic fashion.

The parental units of Arrow aren’t ever examples of great parenting (with the exception of the fantastic Donna Smoak and in some selected circumstances, Moira Queen). But this week it was specifically the fathers that got horribly problematic for everyone, from Malcolm to Felicity’s long-lost father, and even Ra’s from beyond the grave.

The Muppets
Tail of Two Piggies

Original Air Date: Feb 9, 2016

pmb@thetwocentscorp.com

What is so wrong showing a little pig tail, huh? Several Muppets have tails and wear them proudly.

But when Miss Piggy, on the red carpet for the opening of “Zootopia,” has a “wardrobe malfunction” that reveals her tail — the world goes crazy. The headline reads, “Miss Piggy Goes Full Barnyard.” “I just wish I could put this whole thing behind me,” the shamed porcine diva unintentionally puns.

This week on Agent Carter, we get a more laid back caper-type episode where Peggy and team assemble to steal an atomic bomb.

In the middle of the night, Peggy is awaken by James to show her how he is drawn to the tissue sample from Jane Scott. When he waits long enough the zero matter is absorbed inside his body and momentarily makes him solid!

Brooklyn Nine-Nine
The 9-8

Original Air Date: Feb 9, 2016

Laura Linick – Junior Editor
lauralinick@thetwocentscorp.com

Brooklyn 9-9 meets Brooklyn 9-8. The 98th precinct has a burst pipe, so the 99th has to share their space. Which means Captain Holt has to let someone else sit in his chair, Amy can’t smell her new binders, Rosa has to share her desk with someone chatty. This should be interesting.
