What to watch on Wednesday, October 30...
In “Halloween IV: The Ghost Story,” Sue’s spooky sleepover séance leaves her convinced that she’s met Christopher Columbus’s ghost, probably because her sock drawer now belongs to the Queen of Spain and everybody has syphilis. In other Heck happenings, Brick gets a few tips on how to ask a girl to the holiday dance, and Axl is barred from the Halloween party in his dorm room as part of his football team’s hazing ritual.
Nobody’s quite sure what to make of Monroe in “Dead Man Walking,” but no matter where the former despot’s loyalties lie, Tim hopes this is the week Monroe and Miles just shut up and do it already. Meanwhile, Aaron is troubled by visions and continues to set stuff on fire with his brain, probably.
8pm, The CW
Oliver battles The Mayor in “Crucible,” so hopefully he has an empty high school and a big pile of explosives on hand. Wait, what? Oh, never mind. This Mayor is a gunrunner who floods the Glades with illegal arms—and whose villainy also draws Canary’s attention after he puts Sin in the hospital.
9pm, The CW
The Tomorrow People
Killian McCrane (Jason Dohring) is Ultra’s most wanted man—possibly because Ultra is packed with Veronica Mars fangirls. After years off the radar, he reemerges in “Kill or Be Killed,” and it’s up to Stephen to locate the elusive operative.
Nobody, but nobody, in America uses the words “ritualistic murders” as frequently as the folks who pen Criminal Minds loglines, and that includes people who write reports for actual law enforcement agencies. Utah is the site of the latest batch of such killings in “In the Blood,” where the culprit may be obsessed with the Salem Witch Trials. Hopefully the case still leaves everyone time to enjoy the Day of the Dead party Garcia throws.
American Horror Story: Coven
Oh, hey, speaking of Salem witches (segues!): “Fearful Pranks Ensue” finds the longstanding truce between the New Englanders and Marie Laveau jeopardized by Fiona. At the Academy, the Council of Witchcraft drops by with a list of allegations.
ABC News’ official Nashville music industry correspondent Robin Roberts returns, this time giving Rayna the chance to dish about her life, career, and impeccable hair management philosophies. Elsewhere in “It Must Be You,” Juliette bumps into Charlie Wentworth, Teddy publicly announces his engagement, Scarlett seeks Avery’s counsel, and Rayna’s quest for investors in her label hits setbacks at the Belle Meade Polo Match.
