R.I.P. Revenge, everyone on Revenge(?)

Illustration for article titled R.I.P.i Revenge/i, everyone on iRevenge/i(?)

Here’s what’s up in the world of TV for Sunday, May 10th. All times are Eastern.

Top pick

Revenge (ABC, 9 p.m.): After four long seasons of revenging, Emily Thorne and her homicidal Hamptons crew are calling it quits. Will they be revenged? Carrie Raisler knows this show better than us, which okay, wouldn’t be hard, but we look forward to her incisive commentary on how this primetime soap says goodbye. (We also wouldn’t mind a quick note on if anyone ever did raise their fists to the heavens and cry, “REVEEEEENNNGGGGEEEEEEEE!”, which is the entirety of our Revenge spec.)

Also noted

The Good Wife (CBS, 9 p.m.): An uneven sixth season comes to a close with a case of the week that’s an eerie echo of a recent real life revelation: Chicago’s “black site,” where police detain people off the books. Also, Kalinda is apparently showing her face/tall boots once again, but we’re wary of hoping for a reunion with Alicia. Kayla Kumari Upadhyaya knows what we’re talkin’ about (she’s been burned before).


Wolf Hall (PBS, 9 p.m.): The first season comes to an end with Henry asking Cromwell to get rid of Anne Boleyn, because you never know what you got ‘til it’s gone.

Once Upon A Time (ABC, 8 p.m.): The season finale is a full two hours of schemes and dreams and circus crowds, and Gwen Ihnat will be there for every twist along the way.

Game of Thrones (HBO, 9 p.m.): Things are up in the air after last week’s cliffhanger, so while Erik Adams and Myles McNutt regroup, why don’t you check out Ben Phillippe’s defense of why Sansa Stark deserves to sit on the Iron Throne?

Bob’s Burgers (Fox, 9:30 p.m.): With The Last Man On Earth safely out of the way, Bob’s Burgers finally feels safe to come out and play in its usual, later hour. Caroline Framke just wrapped up Last Man coverage but she’s not ready to give up the 9:30 spot just yet, so she’s stepping in for tonight’s Belcher beat.


Mad Men (AMC, 10 p.m.): AMC is letting the Mad Men take ten extra minutes for Don to have trouble sleeping, Pete to get blindsided by a friend, and Harry to arrange a family reunion. While we have our theories (fever dreams/Kenny Cosgrove/??), Mad Men summaries are notoriously inscrutable, so we we’ll wait for John Teti to actually watch the damn thing and get back to us with something more concrete.
