With the arrival of the first May flowers comes the first in this year’s season finales, as the busy part of the 2013-2014 broadcast season draws to a close. This week The Tomorrow People concludes its first (and likely only) season on Tuesday night.
Then, on Sunday, ABC treats Once Upon A Time fans (I’ve heard we are called “Oncers”) to an epic 2-hour season finale. Find out how the current story ends (or IF it ends) and where it all leaves off over the summer. The show is sure to be back in the fall, though ABC hasn’t officially announced its renewal yet.
Believe has the week off, and will return on May 18. But Revolution returns from its hiatus this Wednesday, while Arrow heads into the home stretch with the penultimate episode of the season and an attack on Starling City.
