What to Watch Tonight: The Vampire Diaries, Person of Interest, and The Secret Circle

What to watch on Thursday, March 29...

If the week were a carnival, Thursday night would be the rickety roller coaster in the middle of the fairgrounds! Thrills-a-plenty but with just enough questionable assembly to really make things interesting. Check out these highlights:

8pm, CW
The Vampire Diaries
Only five episodes left of this season! Can you believe it? That is not very many episodes! Tonight's episode, entitled "The Murder of One," involves Damon and Stefan's plot to murder Klaus (and his siblings) via stakes carved from an antique sign (don't ask). But Klaus has a plan up his sleeve and it involves Bonnie! Sorry lady, this is just not your season.

8pm, NBC
Community
"Digital Exploration of Interior Design," is the first of a two-parter in which Shirley, Pierce, and Britta attempt to shut down a sandwich shop that opens in the cafeteria. Meanwhile Troy must once again fight off the professional advances of Laybourne while also battling Abed for blanket fort superiority.

9pm, CBS
Person of Interest
Beep boop beep. Tonight the magic computer directs the team toward a person of interest who leads a DOUBLE LIFE! That's twice the number of identities to track down. Oh well, hopefully they'll all make time-and-a-half for overtime.

9pm, CW
The Secret Circle
Tonight we'll learn just how much cooler Adam is now that he's out of love with Cassie. Plus Jake learns some distressing news about the witch hunters and Blackwell will continue being hecka shady. And Cassie will try not to run out of the room after every scene. Poor Cassie!

10pm, NBC
Awake
In "Oregon," Michael will attempt to track down a serial killer only to find that he himself is a prime suspect in the killings. Meanwhile in the Hannah half of his brain, she'll consider moving to Oregon and going back to school and Michael must decide what to do. (I've never been so grateful for dreamless sleep.)

SEASON 9 PREMIERE, 10pm, MTV
Punk'd
Yup, it's back. Justin Bieber is the guest host. Tonight's targets are Taylor Swift, Rob Dyrdek, and Sean Kingston. But let's get real: nobody will be more punk'd than the viewing public. R.I.P. Us!

TVD, POI, Awake, Touch (though I do wonder how long Touch is going to stay interesting if it keeps using the same format each episode).

Tonight is notable for what I won't be watching. Goodbye Awake and Missing, you were boring and won't be missed. Awake failed its 4 episode test for me and Missing proved unworthy of even that.

HAHAHA Bonnie's name should just become Plot Device. That show...

Anyway, COMMUNITY and THE SECRET CIRCLE. Not necessarily in that order but does it really matter? NO IT DOES NOT.

And Troy and Abed best not be rivals for any more than the next two episodes. I can't just STOP orbiting planet Trobed, Dan Harmon. Even when it erupts into a gazillion feathers (which will be awesome).

"Give me some rope

Tie me to dream

Give me the hope

To run out of steam

Somebody said

It can be here

We could be roped up, tied up

Dead in a year

I can't count the reasons I should stay

One by one they all just fade away." . . . . . . .



Um, yeah, so I'll be watching Community.



Oh, and these other shows, too: TVD and TSC, Awake and Person of Interest.
