Here’s what’s up in the world of TV for Monday, October 23. All times are Eastern.

Top pick

The Gifted (Fox, 8 p.m.): Eclipse is hunting down an old friend, because the mutants have had it up to here (indicates neck height, or possibly much higher depending on mutant abilities) with Sentinel Services, and are devising a strategy to take it out. Jesse Hassenger will don his personal Cerebro and try to suss out what it all means.


Regular coverage

Supergirl (The CW, 8 p.m.)
Lucifer (Fox, 8 p.m.)

Wild card

Halloween (AMC, 8:30 p.m.): Have you seen John Carpenter’s 1978 film about masked killer Michael Myers, and resourceful babysitter Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis)? If you haven’t, then everything else on this list is moot. You’re watching this tonight.
