What to watch on Thursday, May 5.
If you were thinking about encasing your remote control in lucite and displaying it in an art gallery as a conceptual art piece about modern life, DON'T. You'll need to use that thing tonight!
In our first post-Michael Scott episode, Deangelo will reveal his true managerial colors when he plays favorites among the staff.
The Vampire Diaries
In the penultimate episode of the season, we'll follow-up on last week's bombshell developments: Jenna's possible conversion to vampire, Damon's possibly fatal werewolf bite, and Elena's possible sacrifice during Klaus' ritual. Just another night in Mystic Falls: Where "possibility" is always a bad thing.
Tonight, Meredith and Derek MAY or MAY NOT make a baby-related decision, plus Callie and Arizona's run into problems as their wedding draws near. Oh come on, ladies, it's probably nothing that can't be solved by a montage.
SEASON 5 FINALE, 10:30pm, NBC
When the TGS cast and crew break for summer, Liz relocates to the Hamptons—only to frown a ton when Tracy moves in next door. Plus Jack chills with Kenneth, and Jenna runs into relationship troubles with guest-star Will Forte.
When a prison guard gets totally murdered outside of a jewelry store, the gang suspects that a former inmate is the culprit. Whoever it is, that person's about to get Mentalized! (Does anyone on the show ever say this?)
