What to watch on Tuesday, January 14...
The basis for FX’s recent series of the same name, this Scandinavian crime drama (which, pre-translation, was called Bron/Broen) centers on a collaboration between Swedish and Danish police after a grisly double murder is discovered on the bridge that connects their two nations. All 10 episodes will be available today.
8pm, The CW
With the Quarter readying for the annual Casket Girls Festival, Klaus and Sophie both pursue the missing Davina while Elijah and Marcel make common cause. Meanwhile in “The Casket Girls,” Hayley is forced into a sticky wicket, Rebekah contacts an old cohort of Marcel’s, and Davina puts Cami through the ringer to try and break Klaus’s compulsion.
As the team hunts for one of Parsa’s associates in “Double Back,” McGee remains rattled by the consequences of the drone strike.
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
There’s a storm at S.H.I.E.L.D. Academy in “Seeds,” but sadly not the one you're hoping for since this show doesn’t have clearance to talk about utants-may. It does have free rein to spill more of Skye’s shady past, however, because it’s been like two whole episodes since that last happened.
8pm, ABC Family
Pretty Little Liars
Ali’s diary may hold the clue to her whereabouts, but it also holds more than a few intimate yet shrouded stories about Hanna, Aria, Emily, and Spencer. As they comb for clues in “Love ShAck, Baby,” dare they go deep enough to divulge their buried secrets?
SEASON 6 PREMIERE, 9pm, Syfy
Fifteen hopefuls begin the competition with a challenge old as time: Fashion a beast fit for a beauty.
9pm, The CW
Dean’s out to avenge Kevin’s murder—and to sever Sam from his angelic trespasser—in “Road Trip.” The catch? The only one who knows how to pull off the latter is Crowley.
Jess strives to become better friends with Coach in “Basketsball,” to make up for all that time he spent off on a different sitcom, but the source of their common ground nettles Nick. In the workplace, Winston tries out a new career and Schmidt is tasked with training an older employee.
“The Punisher” finds Kate
mowing down a bunch of Kingpin’s goons with an AK-47 seeking Diane’s disciplinary expertise after Hillary and Warren misbehave. Away from home, Pete, Jackie, and Bert’s family excursion hits a few snags.
Being Mary Jane
In “Girls Night In,” Mary Jane contemplates where the future may lead, while Kara’s designs to overhaul Mark’s show proceed apace.
Jules’ wedding ring pops off during a fender bender, and soon she finds herself being courted by the other motorist (Matthew Perry). Elsewhere in “Like a Diamond,” Bobby battens down the hatches when he’s convinced a blizzard is due to pummel west Florida.
It’s Raylan to the rescue when a young acquaintance lands in hot water in “The Kids Aren’t All Right.” Might this lead to the Marshal taking the troubled youngster under his wing as a sidekick, à la Robin #2, Jason Todd? (Probably not.) Meanwhile, springing Ava from the hoosegow proves more challenging than Boyd expected.
Person of Interest
After cutting ties with the team, Reese is leavin’ on a jet plane in “4C.” Or at least, he would be if someone hadn’t secretly rejiggered his itinerary. Even worse, his in-flight movie has been changed to Grown Ups 2, which is just plain malicious.
“Out With a Bang” finds Casey insisting that he’s recovered completely from his brush with death, but nobody’s quite buying it. Elsewhere, Shay ducks a lawyer who’s seeking to discuss Daryl’s suicide, a fellow Academy recruit piques Dawson’s interest, and Boden helps a woman push back against a shady landlord.
