The Watch List - February 12, 2015


Thursday nights can get a little tricky. Thursday is the day I don't live tweet anything because I'm off recording my many podcasts that particular night so my DVR goes into overdrive. This week is a little odd because I definitely want to check out The Slap's premiere over on NBC tonight. In the usual 8 PM slots are The Vampire Diaries on The CW and The Big Bang Theory over on CBS (which I record for the weekend with my bae) but it happens to be a re-run this week so I'm not going to bother and neither is my DVR(nor should you). My 9 PM slots belong to Reign on The CW, The Blacklist on NBC and The Rachel Maddow Show over on MSNBC (don't you dare judge me). The 10 PM hour does slow down a bit and my DVR only has two shows to record. The first being How to Get Away with Murder on ABC and the second being Allegiance on NBC.


8 PM on NBC
Meet Hector: a public servant, husband, father and valued friend on the cusp of his 40th. Meet Aisha: Hector's beautiful and intelligent wife who is planning his birthday party filled with friends and his very boisterous Greek family. Sounds like the makings of a great day, right? Wrong. As Hector tries to navigate family politics, awkward friendships and the young woman he is dangerously captivated by, the built-up tension explodes when Hector's hotheaded cousin slaps another couple's misbehaving child. Everyone is understandably stunned, and the party abruptly ends with the child's parents vowing legal action. But what the hosts and guests don't know is that this moment will ignite a chain of events that will uncover long-buried secrets within this group of friends and family ... and vigorously challenge the core values of everyone involved.

Elena and Jeremy reminisce about their past; Caroline and Stefan grow closer; Sheriff Forbes asks Damon for help with a case involving Elena's parents; Enzo lures Matt and Sarah into his plan.

10 PM on NBC
MARK AND KATYA WORK AGAINST THEIR SON TO SAVE HIS LIFE Mark (Scott Cohen) and Katya (Hope Davis) are nearly exposed as spies by their own son, Alex (Gavin Stenhouse). Then, in a brilliant bit of manipulation, Katya manages to convince Alex he is wrong. Katya's lies cause a rift between her and her husband and son. Victor is acutely warned of what will happen to him if he doesn't keep the O'Connors on a tight leash. Meanwhile, Alex partners with Agent Michelle Prado (Floriana Lima) as part of a joint CIA-FBI task force to find the hidden SVR cache before it's destroyed. Alex's unique perspective is the key to unmasking the identity of a new defector, leading to a deadly confrontation with an SVR hit team.
