What to watch on Monday, April 8...
SEASON 1 FINALE, 8pm, The CW
The Carrie Diaries
Secrets are revealed in “Kiss Yesterday Goodbye,” with ramifications for Carrie’s prom plans. Luckily, messing up proms for girls named Carrie has never backfired on anyone ever. Elsewhere in what is hopefully not the series finale, Mouse’s parents are displeased with her new gentleman caller, Dorrit hopes to kick things up a notch with Miller, and Larissa makes Carrie and Walt an attractive offer.
8pm, ABC Family
The Secret Life of the American Teenager
There’s a whole bunch going on in “Shiny and New,” like Amy touring a college campus and George launching a new career. But my favorite part of the synopsis is “Jack takes extreme measures in the name of safety.” Swaddling every inch of his home in bubble wrap? Adopting a masked vigilante persona to institute one-man martial law? What does a Brenda Hampton show’s concept of “extreme” look like, anyway? So, so many questions.
“The Curse” introduces Ryan to a follower who may be able to lead the feds to Carroll. Silly follower! Don’t you know you could escort Ryan and his team on a guided tour along a path bedecked with giant flashing arrows, at the end of which Carroll was bound and gagged and locked in Houdini’s milk can, and they would still find a way to throw it all in the crapper? But sure, go ahead. Bet on this horse. See how that works out for you.
SEASON 3 FINALE, 9pm, Syfy
“Ruh Roh” pits Sally against Donna once more, while Josh and Nora confront Liam as Season 3 concludes. Aidan, meanwhile, must come to grips with his newest vampire abomination, and sadly there’s a real paucity of appropriate Hallmark cards for that sort of thing.
Neville disowns his son after Monroe questions his commitment to Sparkle Motion in “The Song Remains the Same.” Rachel and Charlie’s relationship is on the mend, at least until the former sets off on a mission to turn the power back on and reclaim her self-respect.
Top of the Lake
Ignoring her mother’s misgivings, Robin grows closer to Johnno—and nothing advances a courtship like tracking Matt’s goons as they scour the bush for Tui. In other Episode 5 developments, Tui’s mute friend is nabbed for stealing, and his ensuing interrogation throws a new twist into the investigation.
SEASON 1 FINALE, 10pm, E!
It all comes down to a final evening of romance before Mark pops the question to either Annie or Carly in “Finale.” Later he faces some hardball questions from his spurned suitoresses.
SEASON 1 FINALE, 10pm, TNT
You can take David E. Kelley out of the courtroom, but you can’t take the... wait, what? Hang on, I’m being told you actually cannot take David E. Kelley out of the courtroom, as “Family Ties" proves. That’s where Hooten and Buck find themselves tangling with a grieving son who’s rejecting his mother’s last wishes. Back at Chelsea General, a staffer is endangered by an apparently harmless patient, and a teenager’s health puts a crimp in Sydney and Lieberman’s relationship.
