I honestly don’t understand how the FBI keeps getting hacked and yet here we are…again. This week on Blindspot, an assassin infiltrates the FBI and our favorite bad guy Rich Dotcom (Ennis Esmer) is back for another fun-filled adventure. He’s also wearing a shirt that says Literal Garbage. I mean, this just makes me want to watch it even more.

So, back to this whole assassin situation. Someone is toying with Weller and his team and they don’t know who it is. He captures Zapata and next thing we know, Patterson is down. Is she hurt? She can’t be dead, right? The trailer has Weller yelling, “agent down!.” Ashley Johnson is my hero and one of the many reasons I tune in, so let’s hope all is well.

Meanwhile, Rich Dotcom needs help with something ridiculous, I’m sure. But what about Reade? Is what happened to coach Jones just going to go away? Zapata totally interfered with a crime scene and helped get rid of evidence. I mean, sure, they’re partners but come on.

Also, let’s not forget about last week’s episode where we found out Sandstorm has been watching Weller for like, 20 something years! Does Weller actually recognize Sheperd’s voice? Does he know her? So many questions!

Let us know what you think in the comments below.

Blindspot airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.

The official synopsis for “Resolves Eleven Myths”:

RICH DOTCOM STIRS UP TROUBLE – – Rich Dotcom (Ennis Esmer) returns to the FBI when he needs help with a pressing issue. Also starring Sullivan Stapleton, Jaimie Alexander, Rob Brown, Audrey Esparza, Ashley Johnson, Ukweli Roach, Luke Mitchell, Michelle Hurd and Archie Panjabi

GRIMM -- "The Beginning of the End" Episode 522 -- Pictured: David Giuntoli as Nick Burkhardt -- (Photo by: Scott Green/NBC)

Our favorite supernatural series is coming to an end.

NBC has announced that Grimm will return with its sixth and final season on Friday, January 6 at 8pm ET/PT.

The series will close with the battle we’ve all been waiting for: Nick vs. Captain Renard.

As for events leading into the final season, the nefarious forces of Black Claw have been silenced and Nick (David Giuntoli) faces an all too familiar foe in Capt. Sean Renard (Sasha Roiz). Now in the seat of power as the mayor-elect of Portland, Renard is poised to bring rise to his own brand of law and order. Nick must take a stand to protect his city and those closest to him, especially his child with Adalind (Claire Coffee). It will take the full force of Nick and his allies to find a way to bring the peace.

Meanwhile, Monroe (Silas Weir Mitchell) and Rosalee (Bree Turner) grapple with bringing a child into a new and tumultuous world, and Eve (Bitsie Tulloch) faces unsettling identity issues as her former self-lurks below the surface. Russell Hornsby and Reggie Lee will also star in the final season.

Grimm reached the 100-episode milestone last season but was cut from 22 episodes to 13 for the upcoming sixth season which had us all wondering if it would even have legs for a seventh.

The series was created by David Greenwalt & Jim Kouf and Stephen Carpenter. Sean Hayes and Todd Milliner (Hollywood Game Night, Hot in Cleveland) serve as executive producers along with Greenwalt and Kouf. “Grimm” is a Universal Television and Hazy Mills production.

HBO Sets Premiere Dates for ‘Westworld,’ ‘Insecure,’ and Sarah Jessica Parker’s ‘Divorce’

11223845_1603406159928771_8949569126305680152_n

At the Television Critics Association summer session, HBO announced the premiere dates for the long-awaited Westworld, Insecure, and Sarah Jessica Parker’s new comedy series Divorce. 

The one-hour drama series Westworld kicks off its ten-episode season Sunday, Oct. 2 at 9 PM (ET/PT). Created for television by Jonathan Nolan (Interstellar, The Dark Knight, Person of Interest) and Lisa Joy (Pushing Daisies, Burn Notice), Westworld is a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the evolution of sin, exploring a world in which every human appetite, no matter how noble or depraved, can be indulged.

Co-creator Nolan explains, “Building on the incredibly evocative concept of the original film, we wanted to pose the question: If you could be completely immersed in a fantasy, one in which you could do whatever you wanted, would you discover things about yourself that you didn’t want to know?”

Co-creator Joy adds, “We also wanted to explore what it means to be human from the outside in – through the eyes of the ‘hosts’: the lifelike AI characters that are the main attractions of the park. It’s a meditation on consciousness – the blessing and the burden of it – beautifully portrayed by our remarkable cast.”

The series was inspired by the 1973 motion picture Westworld, written and directed by Michael Crichton, and stars Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris, Evan Rachel Wood, James Marsden, Thandie Newton and Jeffrey Wright along with Tessa Thompson, Sidse Babett Knudsen, Jimmi Simpson, Rodrigo Santoro, Shannon Woodward, Ingrid Bolsø Berdal, Ben Barnes, Simon Quarterman, Angela Sarafyan, Luke Hemsworth and Clifton Collins, Jr.

Nolan and Joy are executive producing and writing, with Nolan also directing. Production companies, Kilter Films, Bad Robot Productions, and Jerry Weintraub Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television. Executive producer/writer/director, Jonathan Nolan; executive producer/writer, Lisa Joy; executive producers, J.J. Abrams, Jerry Weintraub, Bryan Burk.

Comedy series Divorce starring Sarah Jessica Parker, who also serves as executive producer, begins its ten-episode season Sunday, Oct. 9 at 10 PM (ET/PT).

After more than a decade of marriage and two children, Frances (Parker) has suddenly begun to reassess her life and her strained relationship with her husband, played by Thomas Haden Church. But she soon discovers that making a clean break and a fresh start is harder than she thought. The story of a very, very long divorce, the show follows Frances and Robert as they grapple with the fallout from their failing marriage, not just for themselves, but also for their children and friends, ranging from awkward public encounters to difficult private therapy sessions.

Set in Westchester County, NY, Divorce is created by Sharon Horgan (Catastrophe), with Paul Simms (HBO’s Girls) serving as a showrunner on the series. Paul Simms, Sarah Jessica Parker, Sharon Horgan, Alison Benson and Aaron Kaplan executive produce.

The series also stars Molly Shannon, Talia Balsam, Tracy Letts, Sterling Jerins and Charlie Kilgore.

Immediately following Divorce, comes another new comedy series titled Insecure, starring Issa Rae, and launches its eight-episode season Sunday, Oct. 9 at 10:30 PM (ET/PT).

Modern-day black women are usually portrayed as strong, confident and “flawless.” But Issa and Molly are definitely not “killing it.” These best friends must deal with their own real-life flaws as they attempt to navigate different worlds and cope with an endless series of uncomfortable everyday experiences.

Rae stars as Issa and Yvonne Orji stars as Molly on the show, which explores the black female experience in an unclichéd and authentic way.

Over the course of the season, Issa attempts to figure out what she wants out of life and how to take control of it, while fumbling her way through this journey. Molly, a corporate attorney who appears to have everything together professionally, struggles inside as she looks for external ways to fix her life.

Meanwhile, Issa’s boyfriend, Lawrence (Jay Ellis), who has fallen victim to complacency, works to get his own act together. Frieda (Lisa Joyce), Issa’s overeager white co-worker, whose enthusiasm is both annoying and endearing, is at the crux of Issa’s racial frustrations at work.

Shot in and around South Los Angeles, Insecure incorporates the music of both indie and established artists of color and touches on a variety of social and racial issues that relate to the contemporary black experience.

Insecure was created by Issa Rae and Larry Wilmore; executive produced by Issa Rae, Prentice Penny, Melina Matsoukas, Michael Rotenberg, Dave Becky and Jonathan Berry. Larry Wilmore serves as a consultant.
