Let’s talk about Thursday night’s TV!

SUPERNATURAL: First of all, the recap special before the finale itself was gorgeous.

I will say…I was struck multiple times during the finale itself multiple times about the COVID restrictions. Had the world been normal, it feels like there would have been a different final case, more familiar faces in Heaven, etc. The pacing felt like it was a bit off because they had to adjust things after it had been written.

But I will miss this show so much. I’ll miss the brothers’ bond. I’ll miss Team Free Will. I’ll miss Baby.

SUPERSTORE: Poor Dina. She’s right, she’s talked so much trash, she was in a bit of a no-win situation when taking over for Glenn. But, uh, also, poor Jonah? It feels like he’s going to spiral soon, and it won’t be pretty.

Them attacking that prize wheel at the end was delightful. (Though I would like a Cloud 9 bobble?!?)

MOM: Okay, Tammy and Adam’s friendship is absolutely precious. I so appreciate how much they care about each other.

GREY’S ANATOMY: Meredith. And. Derek’s. Theme. If you could make it through that without getting emotional, what’s it like to be normal? Please share your ways.

It was a very weird position to be in, to want Meredith to actively get worse so she could get back to Derek and the two could interact beyond what the promos had hyped up. But, also, if this is going to be wondering who pops up next for weeks, that’s a fun game for the show.

But the episode itself was good. The joy from Bailey—and the jealousy of Meredith—over the the liver baby was a refreshing relief. And Amelia and Link! So precious.

ALSO, bless this show for being the only responsible one with masks?!

LAW & ORDER: SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT: Riki Lindhome was very good, but I was really, really impressed with the two young performers playing her children. Child actors can be really hit/miss, but Athan Sporek and Colette Kaufman were great.

I do wonder how this ordeal will change Fin going forward, though. He’s been doing this for so long time, and as EP Warren Leight noted, it feels like he’s re-evaluating things in the aftermath of last season’s shooting. I hope the show plays with that more this season, because he has been through a lot during his time on the show.

THE UNICORN: Aw, Wade and Shannon are cute together. I wonder how long the show will actually play with their dynamic, but they’re very cute as they navigate their new relationship.

A MILLION LITTLE THINGS: I’m going to be upfront: When Eddie woke up, my first thought was he would have amnesia to a pre-Jon’s death time. (I’m very glad they didn’t go down that road.) I am hopeful they will handle this storyline respectfully, because, as creator DJ Nash noted, he grew up with a parent who was physically challenged.

My heart hurts for Regina and Rome. I know they’ll get through this, but it hurts to see them in such pain and grieving in their own way.

Always, always, always love seeing Chris Geere. Can’t wait to see what he’s up to on this show.

And, now, the show is dealing with COVID. Also incredibly thankful they’re not going to show the early-pandemic mixed messaging of not wearing a mask, because there is a responsibility in how you showcase the pandemic on television. (For more on what’s to come in season 3, here’s what Nash had to say.)
