The Las Vegas round of So You Think You Can Dance grooves on Fox while Law and Order says goodbye for the summer.
That was one heck of a season finale on Law & Order: SVU last night, though I must say I was a little miffed by which member of the cast bit the big one. Spoilers ahead! The episode began with what should have been an open and shut case but Stabler and Benson’s foot got caught in the door. The killer was a mentally challenged young man who thought the whole world was spying on him. The cops find the murder weapon in his apartment but a clerical error in logging the evidence allows the man to walk. Who’s responsible for this mess? Creepy CSI tech Dale (Noel Fisher). Suddenly bodies are dropping left and right as the killer goes after everyone who done him wrong including the chief lab rat and finally Stabler.
Oh wait, it’s not the killer, it’s creepy Dale exacting his revenge on all the people who were nasty to him. Huh? He does say he was trying to correct his mistake and put a killer behind bars but now he’s just out for blood, Stabler’s and it isn’t pretty. The only thing creepier than Dale, is the seduction Olivia uses in order to get control of the situation.
Suffice to say, the second half of this episode was a total mess. The saving grace of this episode were the guest stars, Kelly Bishop (Gilmore Girls), Carol Kane and Judith Light.
Over on I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here, I hear Spencer and Heidi have quit the show. . . again. No, for real this time. Or at least until it’s too late for Heidi to be the woman voted off the island.
Tonight’s top picks:
Law & Order
Law & Order ends their 19th season with this politically themed episode that starts with the murder of a charity exec but lands squarely on the re-election race for District Attorney.
Stalking, blackmail, and there’s probably a sex-scandal thrown in for good measure. When Law & Order returns in the fall, it will tie Gunsmoke as the longest running scripted prime-time drama in the US.
Now that’s something to be proud of. Watch the season finale of Law & Order on NBC at 10:00.
So You Think You Can Dance
With the exception of a few returning favorites, these dancers have no idea what they’ve gotten themselves into. It’s Vegas week on So You Think You Can Dance and they’re about to experience pressure like they’ve never felt before. There are a lot of talented dancers but only a few spots at the top. It’s going to be a tough week for everybody.
Watch So You Think You Can Dance on Fox starting at 8:00.
It’s down to Jimmy and Colt so Stacey decides to introduce them to her children, 16-year-old Graham, 14 year-old Delaney and 8 year-old Tatum.
