What to watch on Thursday, April 3...


SERIES FINALE, 8pm, ABC
Once Upon a Time in Wonderland
“And They Lived” marks the series coda, with word last week that ABC won’t be heading down the rabbit hole again next season. So Jafar has to cram an awful lot of villainy into these last 42 minutes, what with locking up the Jabberwocky, coercing Anastasia’s affections, and raising a host of undead warriors. But Alice and the White Rabbit muster a battalion of their own as a showdown at the Well of Wonders looms.


8pm, CBS
The Big Bang Theory
Raj tries to juggle dating two women at once in “The Indecision Amalgamation,” so I assume he’ll be hitting the Archie shelves at the comic book shop pretty hard for research. Sheldon’s torn between two lovers as well, though in his case both are video game consoles. In other goings-on, Penny must choose whether to accept a part in a B-movie.


8pm, NBC
Community
Remember kids: You don’t have to let bullies pressure you into not looking both ways before you cross the street. And don’t forget to floss after meals, and during act breaks of “G.I. Jeff,” in which the gang winds up in a G.I. Joe-style animated escapade. Now you know—and knowing is half the battle!


8:30pm, NBC
Parks and Recreation
In “Prom,” the gang goes all-out to save the high school’s senior formal, possibly through the use of some sort of bake sale or serendipitously timed talent competition. In the process, Leslie and Ron battle for the soul of a promising student, Tom lets Ben lend a hand at the DJ table, and April grudgingly accompanies Andy to the big dance.


9pm, ABC
Grey’s Anatomy
Flu patients swarm the hospital in “You Be Illin’,” and one by one the docs quickly fall amongst the infected. That’s particularly bad news for Derek, who’s preparing to deliver a critical speech on brain mapping. If I may assist the man, here’s a mantra that may prove useful.


9pm, Lifetime
Project Runway: Under the Gunn
In “Superhero Fashion,” the designers must craft costumes fit for a caped crusader. If any of the contestants are children of the ‘90s, expect to see outfits boasting pouches out the wazoo. This week’s final challenge determines which designers and mentors advance to the finale.


9pm, Sundance
The Red Road
“Snaring of the Sun” places Kopus in a tight spot with trouble in store, while Harold digs up crushing news about his family’s history.


9pm, NBC
Hollywood Game Night
“Game Night, That’s Another Story,” welcomes Jenna Elfman, Donald Faison, Bob Harper, Ellie Kemper, Joel Madden, and Molly Shannon to the open bar backstage very serious and high-stakes competition.


9pm, USA
Suits
A tenacious attorney tries to poach one of Harvey’s biggest clients in “Know When to Fold ‘Em,” lighting his competitive fire. (Other things known to light Harvey’s competitive fire: raspberry crullers, updating the Java version on his web browser, Wednesday.) In other Pearson Spector business, aggrieved ex-partner Charles Van Dyke resurfaces with ill intentions.


9:30pm, Fox
Surviving Jack
Frankie and his friends decide to go out for varsity baseball, but asking Jack to lead their training might’ve been a huge mistake. Elsewhere in “Gonna Make You Sweat,” Joanne crosses a line prying into Rachel’s romantic life.


10pm, History
Vikings
King Horik drops an unexpected offer on Ragnar in “Unforgiven,” while Lagertha receives an unenthusiastic greeting from her new hubby and Athelstan becomes King Ecbert’s unlikely main man.


10pm, CBS
Elementary
A serial killer with an oral fixation resumes his grisly ways in “The Many Mouths of Aaron Colville,” suggesting he may not be quite as dead as had been widely believed.


10pm, Comedy Central
Review
Forrest travels to the stars and gains a new BFF in what is pretty clearly an homage to Buzz Lightyear’s arc in the first Toy Story.


10pm, IFC
Portlandia
“Bahama Knights” queues up much musical merriment and mischief, as Peter gets his old band back together, Trudy and Craig pen a ditty, Fred is inspired to make a rockumentary, and guest-stars including Jeff Tweedy and Maya Rudolph drop by.


10pm, ABC
Scandal
Abby fills in for Olivia at the White House in “The Fluffer,” assuming such key responsibilities as “trying super hard not to clobber Fitz for being the living worst at every given moment.” Around the Beltway, the crew continues to dig up dirt on B613, and Reston’s campaign runs into a roadblock.


10pm, NBC
Parenthood
Zeek and Camille come to a decision about the house’s future, and I’m sure we’re all hoping it involves a crapload of balloons and a trip to South America. Meanwhile in “Cold Feet,” Julia assists Kristina and Adam even as her own troubles continue to stymie her, and Sarah steps in after learning of the kids’ latest monkeyshines.
