“Medicate and Isolate” — While Bravo Team is on a recovery mission in Mali, their friend, former Navy SEAL Brett Swan (Tony Curran), continues to struggle with his mental health, Wednesday, April 24 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

Let’s talk about Wednesday’s TV!

RIVERDALE: Ew, ew, ew, ew, ew to Edgar actually being married to his “daughter.” Ew. And nothing we’ve seen from this cult is convincing enough to make all of those people get sucked in.

It’s really sad that we’ve now seen the last of Luke Perry on the show. What he brought was irreplaceable and it’s an absolute shame the series didn’t better utilize the Fred and Archie relationship the past two seasons.

CHICAGO MED: I thought it was an effective episode, but wow, it’s sad how relieved I was when I realized the hostage situation had nothing to do with Ava. She’s felt like such a cartoon villain for so long, that someone else just being wildly misguided was a nice change of pace.

JANE THE VIRGIN: I know NOTHING about the end of the show, but it feels like they brought back Michael so she could pick Rafael “for real.” Ignoring Team Michael vs. Team Rafael, I hope that isn’t the case: the show could have allowed Michael and Jane’s relationship to be what it was and still have Rafael/Jane flourish in the present. Michael didn’t need to be revived just to give Rafael and Jane’s romance validity.

I’m glad Rafael finally realized how his anger at Jane was impacting their son. He’s absolutely entitled to be heartbroken, but yikes, Mateo was basically in a constant temper tantrum.

CHICAGO FIRE: I do wish they hadn’t revealed that John was bad quite so fast—it would have led to a bit more tension with what was going on with the young boy.

I did appreciate that Stella found out Foster warned Severide away—and Severide defended what Foster did. It was nice to have Stella and Foster be friendly, so I’m glad it isn’t going up in smoke because of a possibly misguided attempt to help.

(They’re really going to go there with Brett and Casey, huh?)

SEAL TEAM: Brett’s suicide wasn’t unexpected, but it felt like extra salt in the wound just waiting for Clay to discover what happened. It was tragic, and Max Thieriot’s performance was gutting.

It’s been a tough season for the show, emotionally, as everyone has pretty much hit rock bottom. (Not all at the same time, thankfully, but it’s been a tough year for Bravo Team.) With the end of the season approaching, I hope they’re able to find some kind of peace, even if it is just temporary.

CHICAGO P.D.: Well, that was sure one way to make sure Price didn’t win the election.

Man, Burgess being the one to discover her boyfriend’s dying body was harsh. I’m glad she was able to follow her instincts—and that the squad wholly backed her up.

WHISKEY CAVALIER: I loved this episode, but I wish it had aired earlier in the season. It was originally the fourth episode, and it felt a bit more of a tone-setting episode. (It also felt like a huge transition for Frankie’s character, both personally and within the team.)

(How many nights do we think Will got an unwanted wake-up call to make up for his monologue about his own history?)
