What to Watch: 05/25/2016

It’s a night of finales — capped by a cult series’ ending with an accidentally passive-aggressive episode title. There’s also the return of M. Night Shamalayan’s best work in ages. To the TV shows…

KATHERINE’S PICK:
Nashville [ABC, 10p]
Nashville comes to its end tonight–the series has not been renewed, and tonight’s episode will not resolve all storylines. Hopefully Will’s becoming a “leader for a cause” means he’ll be out and proud forever, and Juliette’s public confrontation of Jeff’s death will bring her peace.

NAVANI’S PICK:
Maron [IFC, 9p]
Maron’s road back to recovery is a bumpy one trying to navigate being the oldest peson in his rehab and the sad realization he has nowhere to run away to.

JASON’S PICK:
Wayward Pines [Fox, 9p]
It’s not without a touch of wariness that I recommend this. The first season of Wayward Pines contained some clever writing, torrid acting, and a unique twist, that for the first time in over a decade for MNS, didn’t seem forced — but it also descended into a bit of nonsense and chaos at the end. And did it really even warrant a second season. But it’s a new beginning, featuring a few returning characters, notably Hope Davis’ creepy guidance counselor. She’s always welcome. We’ll see where they go with season two.
