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:
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.
"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.
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.
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!
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
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!
