Illustration for article titled This Weeks TV: emClone Wars/em final season! Plus, who is the Yellow King?

This is a week of hellos and farewells, with the premiere of the non-zombie back-to-life series Resurrection, the return of both Once Upon a Time shows, and the season finales of Almost Human and True Detective. Plus, the final 13 episodes of Clone Wars hit Netflix, revealing the secrets of Order 66. Catch the latest clips and details below.


Almost Human (8 PM, Fox)

Tonight gives us Almost Human's first season finale (possibly its series finale if it isn't renewed), and sadly, it doesn't sound like we'll be revisiting John Larroquette's character or what he's up to on the other side of the Wall. Instead, we're learning a bit about the Kennex clan:

Det. Kennex (Karl Urban) and Dorian (Michael Ealy) investigate a string of murders by a copycat of a serial killer whom Kennex's father (guest star John Diehl) put in jail. As the investigation unfolds, biotechnology from the future sheds light on crimes of the past. Meanwhile, Dorian receives his performance evaluation since being reactivated.

Star-Crossed (8 PM, The CW)

Human kids spending the day in the Atrian sector? Nothing could possibly go wrong:

Gloria (guest star Victoria Platt) selects a small group of human teenagers who will spend some time inside the sector to see what it's like to be an Atrian for a day. In addition, Gloria assigns Emery (Aimee Teegarden) the task of filming the interactions. While Grayson (Grey Damon) offers to help her with the project, Roman (Matt Lanter) strongly objects to Emery going inside the sector. Despite Roman's concern for her safety, Emery decides to move forward with the project. While Sophia (Brina Palencia) is excited to show everyone around her pod, Teri (Chelsea Gilligan) and Drake (Greg Finley) resent the intrusion and decide to have a little fun at the humans' expense. However, when Drake is kidnapped during the tour, he's surprised by who is behind the abduction. Meanwhile, Julia (Malese Jow) confronts Roman with her suspicions about cyper.

Elena and Clay need to race against time to save a dying Jeremy.

Beauty and the Beast (9 PM, The CW)

We're in love triangle mode on Beauty and the Beast, which doesn't bode well for Cat and Gabe's relationship:

While Cat and Vincent work together to save Sam's (guest star Tom Everett Scott) latest victim, Cat's decision gets complicated when she and Vincent find themselves in a compromising situation.

Intelligence (10 PM, CBS)

One of the problems with having a computer chip in your brain is that you're vulnerable to computer viruses—and apparently even the fleshy parts of your brain are at risk:

When Gabriel's memory is wiped clean after CyberCom is attacked by an aggressive virus, he believes Jin Cong is the good guy and helps him locate a top-secret document.

Lost Girl (10 PM, Syfy)

Coulson goes on the attack to save Skye - enlisting the aid of Ward's former S.O. John Garrett (Bill Paxton) — and uncovers shocking truths about his own life and S.H.I.E.L.D.

The Originals (8 PM, The CW)

What will The Originals teach us about life this week? That magical curses will drive people to do desperate things. Go figure.

In a series of flashbacks to 1919, Klaus (Joseph Morgan) opens up to Cami (Leah Pipes) and reveals details of the devastating secret Rebekah (Claire Holt) and Marcel (Charles Michael Davis) were trying to keep from him.

Supernatural (9 PM, The CW)

It sounds like this week, Supernatural is borrowing from the Internet's creepypasta urban legend, the Slenderman. The good news: the Ghostfacers are back! The bad news: someone felt compelled to add a hashtag to the episode's title, "#Thinman."

A teenage girl (guest star Ali Webb) is killed and the final selfie she took before the attack shows a ghostly figure in the background. Looking for something to keep them busy, Dean (Jensen Ackles) and Sam (Jared Padalecki) head to Washington to find the ghost.

Back on the island, as Oliver, Slade and Sara (Caity Lotz) prepare to take over the freighter from Ivo (guest star Dylan Neal), Sara pulls Oliver aside and tells him he needs to kill Ivo to prevent him from telling Slade what happened with Shado. Oliver feels immense guilt over the situation but realizes Slade's growing rage from the Mirakuru makes him unpredictable and he could turn on his friends if he thinks Oliver is to blame. Oliver agrees to kill Ivo and the battle begins.


Revolution (8 PM, NBC)

While Nadia (guest star Olga Fonda) remembers her centuries-long search for her mother, Stefan (Paul Wesley), Caroline (Candice Accola) and Matt (Zach Roerig) come up with a desperate new plan to save Elena's (Nina Dobrev) life. For the second time, Bonnie (Kat Graham) and Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) must turn to Liv (guest star Penelope Mitchell) for help.

Star Wars: The Clone Wars: The Lost Missions (Netflix)

The full 13-episode sixth (and final) season of Clone Wars comes to Netflix on Friday, and it answers some of the questions raised by the films. We start off with a Clone Trooper neurological misfire that threatens to reveal Order 66 ahead of schedule, and we'll end with Yoda, whose encounter with a ghostly Qui-Gon Jinn sends him on a quest to understand the nature life after death. This final season is sadly lacking in Ahsoka and Asajj, however.

Once Upon a Time (8 PM, ABC)

The midseason return of OUAT shows us the aftermath of the broken curse:

After Rumplestiltskin sacrificed his life to stop Pan from enacting another curse, Regina obliterated her original curse, which erased Storybrooke from existence and whisked its residents back to Fairy Tale Land - leaving Emma and Henry back in our world with no memories of Storybrooke. But all is not well back in the Enchanted Forest when Hook comes calling on Emma in New York City in an attempt to jog her memory so that she can once again help her fairy tale family and friends out of a desperate situation.


Resurrection (9 PM, ABC)

ABC's new TV series has a similar premise to that of the French drama Les Revenants (although the former is based on a book by Jason Mott), in which long-dead people mysteriously reappear, as young and as healthy as they were when they died:

In "The Returned," an 8-year-old American boy (Landon Gimenez) wakes up alone in a rice paddy in a rural Chinese province with no idea how he got there. Details start to emerge when the boy, who calls himself Jacob, recalls that his hometown is Arcadia, and an Immigration agent, J. Martin Bellamy (Omar Epps), takes him there. The home he claims as his own is occupied by a 60-year-old couple, Henry (Kurtwood Smith) and Lucille Langston (Frances Fisher), who lost their son, Jacob, more than 30 years ago.

While they look different, young Jacob recognizes them as his parents. Lucille is overjoyed at the seeming miracle of her son's reappearance. Henry is reluctant to accept that Jacob is back. Those closest to the family want answers, including Sheriff Fred Langston (Matt Craven), whose wife Barbara drowned 30 years ago while trying to save Jacob, and Fred's daughter, Maggie (Devin Kelley), a local doctor. Pastor Tom Hale (Mark Hildreth) seeks a spiritual reason for what's happening in his community. When things take an even more shocking turn, Maggie's life-long friend, Elaine Richards (Samaire Armstrong), finds herself drawn into Arcadia's growing mystery.
