Moving Pictures: Previews of NCIS, Glee, The Mentalist, Supernatural
Airdate: Tuesday May 3 @ 8/7C on CBS
CBS Synopsis: After Tony’s ex-partner, Danny Price, appears to be the Port-to-Port Killer’s latest victim, he revisits his days as a detective in Baltimore, including his first encounter with Gibbs. Scott Grimes (“ER”) guest stars as Detective Danny Price, Tony’s former partner.
Why This Picture Moves Me: Come on, this episode is going to depict the historic meeting between Gibbs and Dinozzo. It’s eight seasons in the making; we’re going to see the very first head slap heard ’round the world; we’re going to get flashbacks to Tony’s homicide cop days. One of my favorite aspects of this show is the dynamic between Gibbs and Dinozzo so the very first time I saw this picture, it gave me chills. I am beyond excited for this episode. Maybe too excited? I don’t want my high expectations to ruin everything.
Airdate: Tuesday May 3 @ 8/7 on FOX
FOX Synopsis: Sue Sylvester revives the school newspaper and decides to print a few inflammatory blind items. The glee club gains a whole new respect for Sam when they discover some interesting new information about his family life. Meanwhile, April Rhodes returns to Lima and tries to convince Mr. Schuester to hit the road with her.
Why This Picture Moves Me: It seems to me like we’re witnessing a quiet, stolen moment between Brittany and Santana. I love me some Brittana so I hope these two play a big part in this episode. I’m extremely excited Fleetwood Mac’s legendary “Rumours” album is getting the Glee treatment. The album was made at a time when a lot of drama was going on with the band — we’re talking breakups and relationship struggles — Â so I’m excited to see if Glee’s going to mirror the same kind of thing.
Show: The Mentalist
Episode: “Like a Redheaded Stepchild”
Airdate: Thursday May 5 @ 10/9C
CBS Synopsis: Â CBI Agent Wayne Rigsby (Owain Yeoman) fights with his father, Steve (William Forsythe), an ex-con living in the area, while trying to investigate the murder of a prison guard.
Why This Picture Moves Me: All you have to do is look at it. I’m not even a regular watcher of this show, but rarely does one of these press photos depict such a volatile act as a father coming to blows with his son. I do know enough about The Mentalist to understand the relationship between these two is not good. Rigsby’s dad is a career criminal and let’s just say there’s no way he’d be happy with a do-gooder for a son. They are on opposite sides of the law and thanks to this picture, we know things aren’t going to go smoothly. Plus, William Forsythe is such a badass. I can only imagine the havoc his character is going to cause. Great guest-star get.
Episode: “The Man Who Would Be King”
Airdate: Friday May 6 @ 9/8C on The CW
CW Synopsis: Castiel (Misha Collins) tells Sam (Jared Padalecki), Dean (Jensen Ackles) and Bobby (Jim Beaver) about the war in Heaven and how he and Raphael became enemies. Bobby believes Castiel is hiding something, but Dean refuses to believe it. Ben Edlund wrote and directed the episode.
Why This Picture Moves Me: I don’t know if this is just a behind-the-scenes pic or if it’s Misha Collins in character as Castiel, because I cannot reconcile Cas as ever exhibiting this kind of full-on grin. The angel is so serious; he isn’t really in touch with too many emotions; and we know what he’s been through this season. Scratch that, we don’t know it completely since we haven’t really seen what’s going on with this civil war in heaven, but we have seen the way it’s affected him. I’m anxious for “TMWWBK” because: a) we’re finally getting a Cas-centric episode; and b) whatever Cas tells Sam and Dean, have you seen the pics of Dean looking all hurt? Let me give you all a bonus Moving Picture as evidence:
Friday needs to get here now. This expression on Dean’s face must be explained. Did he just find out about the Cas-Crowley connection? Can’t wait to see how this all plays out.
