Show: NCIS
Episode: “Pyramid”
Airdate: Tuesday May 17 @ 8/7C on CBS
CBS Synopsis: The lives of NCIS members are in jeopardy when they come face-to-face with the infamous Port-to-Port killer, on the eighth season finale of NCIS, Tuesday, May 17 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.  Sarah Jane Morris returns as Special Agent E.J. Barrett; Enrique Murciano returns as CIA Agent Ray Cruz; Muse Watson reprises his role as Mike Franks; David Dayan Fisher reprises his role as Trent Kort; and Kerr Smith guest stars as Navy Lieutenant Jonas Cobb.
Why These Pictures Move Me: I couldn’t pick just one. Couldn’t do it. I had to pick two because they both make me slightly afraid of what’s going to happen tonight. In the last episode, Mike Franks died. Word on the spoiler street is there’s more coming. I chose the action shot of Gibbs, Dinozzo and McGee because I’m wondering if this is the scene where “Swan Song” left off. The P2P killer had shot up EJ’s team and was starting to work on her. I’m so afraid of what Gibbs et. al. are going to find. The second picture I chose was one of a very serious Jimmy Palmer (Brian Dietzen). We don’t really ever see our assistant medical examiner looking quite so serious let alone be featured in the press photos. I don’t know why it has affected me but it has. I guess we’ll see if my fears are warranted when “Pyramid” airs.

Show: One Tree Hill
Episode: “This is My House, This is My Home”
Airdate: Tuesday May 17 @ 8/7C on CW
CW Synopsis: As Brooke (Sophia Bush) and Haley (Bethany Joy Galeotti) prepare to re-open Karen’s Café, Nathan (James Lafferty) and Clay (Robert Buckley) hit the road looking for new prospective clients. Meanwhile, Chase (Stephen Colletti) leaves for the Air Force leaving behind a disappointed Alex (Jana Kramer) and Chuck (guest star Michael May), and Mouth (Lee Norris) and Millicent (Lisa Goldstein) begin their new morning show together. Jackson Brundage and Shantel VanSanten also star. The episode was written and directed by Mark Schwahn.
Why This Picture Moves Me: My OTH-watching days are long behind me but this picture just makes me melt so I had to share. Nathan and Haley have always been my favorite Tree Hill couple and this image proves why. They’re adorable and they will never stop being adorable. Naley forever.

Show: NCIS: Los Angeles
Episode: “Familia”
Airdate: Tuesday May 17 @ 9/8C on FOX
CBS Synopsis: Hetty’s sudden resignation prompts Callen and the NCIS team to investigate the reason why she would disappear in the hopes of tracking her down, on the second season finale of NCIS: LOS ANGELES, Tuesday, May 17 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.  Rocky Carroll guest stars as NCIS Director Leon Vance and Claire Forlani returns as Operations Manager Lauren Hunter.
Why This Picture Moves Me: Anything that gets Vance in person at the LA Division of NCIS intrigues me. We know things have gone down with Hetty and it all leads back to Callen’s past because NCIS: LA head honcho, Shane Brennan, likes to tell us this show is all about Callen’s journey. But seriously, Vance is pulling double duty since he’s playing a major part of the finale for the original NCIS too. I’m curious to see how that’s all going to work.

Show: Raising Hope
Episode: “Don’t Vote For This Episode”
Airdate: Tuesday May 17 @ 9/8C on FOX
FOX Synopsis: The Chances reminisce about the year Jimmy turned 18 – when Maw Maw kicked them out of the house, when a goth Jimmy (a/k/a “Drakkar Noir”) took up residence in the grocery store and when Burt and Virginia finally figured out how to be adults.
Why This Picture Moves Me: I’ve already seen the finale (at this year’s PaleyFest) and it’s great. It’s strange but funny to imagine Jimmy going through a Goth phase at all considering how docile he is now. You may ask why he’s living at the store instead of at home. You’ll have to wait to find out but I will say this: Burt and Virginia aren’t living with Maw Maw either. Just wait until you see where they end up. It ain’t pretty, although I will tell you I’ve never laughed as hard at anything on this show as I laughed when I saw what they had to deal with in their new place. I also cringed and had to look away. More than once.

Show: Hellcats
Episode: “I’m Sick Y’all”
Airdate: Tuesday May 17 @ 9/8C on CW
CW Synopsis: An epidemic of strep throat hits Lancer University which results in the Hellcats heading to Nationals a few members short and leaving the team dangerously close to being disqualified. After the shocking discovery that they are related, Marti (Aly Michalka) and Deidre (guest star AJ Michalka) hit some major road bumps in their relationship. The episode also features 78violet’s (Aly Michalka and AJ Michalka’s band) “Belong Here.” Ashley Tisdale, Gail O’Grady, Robbie Jones, Heather Hemmens and Matt Barr also star. Omar Madha directed the episode written by executive producer Kevin Murphy.
Why This Picture Moves Me: Personally, I’d prefer a picture that features Julian (Gale Harold) and Marti but that’s just me. I picked this one because in almost every other press photo everybody was looking all sad and this one seems hopeful. We should be finding out any day, hour, minute if Hellcats will see another season. I hope the CW at least sees fit to give this cheer show a second chance even as a mid-season replacement.

Show: Breaking In
Episode: “21.0 Jump Street”
Airdate: Tuesday May 17 @ 9:30/8:30C on FOX
FOX Synopsis: When Contra Security is hired to find a teen cyber-bully, Cameron, Dutch and the team go back to high school.
Why This Picture Moves Me: I just have so much love for this picture that features Breaking In’s crack security team going all 21 Jump Street on us. Take a look at Rosenbaum’s attire. Are those acid-wash jeans? What in the world is going on with Cameron? Is that supposed to be a new wave look? I have no idea but I can’t wait to find out. Bonus reason: Mike Tyson guest stars. Loved him in The Hangover so I hope this small screen appearance will be as entertaining too. Oh and please tune in. Find out more about why you should tune in to the show’s season finale tonight (instead of tomorrow night) right here

Show: The Good Wife
Episode: “Closing Argument”
Airdate: Tuesday May 17 @ 10/9C on CBS
CBS Synopsis: Despite their tense relationship, Alicia and Kalinda rush to prove their client’s innocence in a murder trial, while the timing might be finally right for Alicia and Will to pursue their relationship, on the second season finale of THE GOOD WIFE. Diane (Christine Baranski) and Eli (Alan Cumming) discuss Lockhart/Gardner.
Why This Picture Moves Me: I am so incredibly invested in Alicia, Will, and Peter but I wanted to spend some time here with two other people I love: Diane and Eli. Diane’s had an interesting year. She thought about starting her own law firm and then helped oust Bond. She was glorious and she shows us again and again that strong, intelligent woman can get what they want. And after helping to get Peter re-elected and NOT becoming involved with America Ferrera’s Natalie Flores, I’ve been wondering what’s next for Eli. We know that he’ll become a series regular next season and it’s exciting to think he’ll work at Lockhart Gardner in some capacity. I’d love to see him and Alicia in the courtroom together. Eventually I think he’ll come clean about erasing that second voicemail from Will Garner. Talk about fireworks. I’ll be there.
