By Andy Daglas

Mar 03, 2014


What to watch on Monday, March 3...


7pm, Cartoon Network
Adventure Time
Will romance bloom when LSP reunites with a former classmate in “Bad Timing”? Can Jake and Finn nab the bandit who robbed Her Lumpiness in “Candy Streets”? These questions and more may be answered.


SEASON 1 FINALE, 8pm, Fox
Almost Human
In “Straw Man,” a rash of murders mimics the M.O. of a serial killer who was thwarted by Kennex’s father. Off the beat, Dorian receives his first performance evaluation since rejoining the ranks. Spoiler alert: He gets perfect marks on the “conversations while riding in the car” portion.


8pm, CBS
How I Met Your Mother
The latest wedding day disruptions in “Vesuvius” include Lily and Robin’s spat and Barney’s suit-selection paralysis. Meanwhile, the gang views The Wedding Bride against Ted’s wishes, and Robin’s sister (Lucy Hale) returns.


8pm, The CW
Star-Crossed
How are you guys celebrating the 10th anniversary of Arrival Day? Gloria’s doing so with a social experiment where some human teens spend a day in the Atrian sector in “Our Toil Shall Strive to Mend.” Emery tags along to film the results, while Roman objects vociferously and Teri and Drake mess with the interlopers for kicks.


8pm, ABC Family
Switched at Birth
Dance numbers enliven every act of “Dance Me to the End of Love,” and not just at the school formal, to which a reluctant Travis invites Mary Beth. Will cutting a rug help Bay adjust to her injury and her art class demands, Daphne pursue the notion of studying pre-med, and John attempt to reconcile with Kathryn?


9pm, ABC Family
The Fosters
The stress of a tough choice piles up on Jesus, throwing him off his wrestling game at a critical moment. Elsewhere in “Escapes and Reversals,” Mariana learns some disturbing details about Zac’s home life, and protecting Brandon could force Callie to hang another friend out to dry.


9pm, Syfy
Being Human
Sally’s time-traveling finally backfires in “Rewind, Rewind.” First she gets trapped in the past, then bollixes up the present for herself and her roommates. No word yet on which of our many possible dystopian futures this rigamarole will trigger.


9pm, Fox
The Following
As Ryan and the FBI search for Lily Gray in “Sacrifice,” danger looms for Max. Stupid danger, Col. Jessup? On this show, Lt. Kaffee, is there any other kind?


SEASON 2 PREMIERE, 9pm, A&E
Bates Motel
Miss Watson’s death preys on Norman’s mind as “Gone but Not Forgotten” returns us to the quaintest little lodging spot this side of the Overlook Hotel. Meanwhile, Bradley goes to great lengths in the hunt for her father’s killer, and Dylan is enmeshed in White Pine Bay’s drug war. Recap all the season premiere shenanigans at 11pm, as the debut of Bates Motel: After Hours continues the Hardwickification of cable drama. Actors and producers will field questions from a studio audience in the live broadcast.


SERIES PREMIERE, 10pm, A&E
Those Who Kill
Chloë Sevigny stars as a homicide detective on the trail of a serial killer in this thriller based on the Danish crimes Den som dræber. In the opener, she recruits a forensic psychiatrist (James D’Arcy) to help her track down not only her killer quarry, but her missing brother as well.


10pm, FX
Archer
Lana, did you hear who’s guest-starring at your party in “Archer Vice: Baby Shower”? Lana? LANA?! LAAANNNNAAAAAA! It’s Kenny “Danger Zone” Loggins! And he’s gonna sing a duet with Cherlene! And then Archer’s gonna arm-wrestle Pam while making Krieger dance through a barn and Cyril wear a gopher costume because let’s milk this for all it’s damn worth!


10pm, NBC
The Blacklist
Dianne Wiest is “The Judge,” the rumored ringleader of an underground court that may be connected to the reemergence of a long-missing prosecutor. While the team probes that, Red checks up on a woman who entices Tom at a conference.


10pm, ABC
Castle
“In the Belly of the Beast” finds Beckett assisting a seemingly routine narco investigation that promptly goes sideways. To be fair, this one’s really on the Narcotics Division. If you don’t want complications and danger and chess matches against criminal overlords, don’t bring the lead of a network TV crime procedural onto your case. This sort of thing tends to follow folks like that around. Seriously, next time ask a detective who’s not on any TV show at all. I bet things go off without a hitch.


10pm, MTV
Teen Wolf
The tale of a World War II internment camp holds a crucial key in “The Fox and the Wolf.” Meanwhile, Kira’s strange new powers—and her vital new role—come to light.


10pm, Syfy
Lost Girl
In what winds up becoming a serendipitously timed tribute to the recently passed Harold Ramis, “Groundhog Fae” sticks Bo in a time loop, reliving the same night repeatedly. Preoccupied by Christmastime festivities, her friends don’t even notice she’s nowhere to be found.
