Vampire Diaries

Vampire Diaries
8/7c CW
It's been seven weeks since the last original episode way back on Dec. 9, but tonight the vampire-werewolf saga picks right up where it left off. Rose, who was bitten by a werewolf, begins exhibiting strange and increasingly violent behavior. Damon confronts werewolf Jules in a desperate attempt to find a cure for Rose, but Jules' advice is to stake her. Not what Damon wants to hear. But can he bring himself to kill Rose, now that he has developed feelings for her? And speaking of feelings, Tyler and Caroline reveal their true thoughts for each other, as their relationship heats up. — Tim Holland

Winter X Games
Noon/11 a.m. c ESPN2
Snow has touched seemingly every corner of the nation this winter and now invades our living rooms for four days and nights as Winter X Games 15 takes flight from Aspen, Colo. The ever-popular halfpipe events dominate the early coverage, with "Flying Tomato" Shaun White and Gretchen Bleiler (snowboard) joining fellow Americans Jen Hudak and Bobby Brown (ski) as defending champions. White grabbed an Olympic gold as well last winter, which can't be said for snowboardcross stalwarts Nate Holland (five-time X champ) and Lindsey Jacobellis (six X golds in eight years), who left Vancouver with oh-so-frustrating finishes of fourth and fifth place, respectively. — Roger Leister

Bones
9/8c Fox
The saga of the Grave Digger, aka Heather Taffet (Deirdre Lovejoy), has hung over the Jeffersonian like a dark cloud. But in this episode, directed by David Boreanaz, when the twisted killer is en route to the final appeal of her death sentence, a sniper's bullet makes sure this plotline is buried once and for all. Her demise may come as a relief to the team, but that doesn't mean they're out of the woods yet, because the mysterious marksman plans to make one of them his next target. — Joe Friedrich

The Office
9/8c NBC
The nuanced mock doc's seventh season keeps rolling along, continuing to insightfully chronicle this Scranton gang's warts-and-all humanity, cringe-worthy interactions, and sizzling-and-fizzling romances. This outing centers on Andy, whose world upends when he falls into a vicious sales slump. In response and in desperation, he presides over a small business seminar featuring some special guests. Enter Michael and Holly (Amy Ryan), who use Andy's event to showcase their improv-comedy flair (or lack thereof). Elsewhere, Erin's got (board) game: She takes on Gabe in a battle of Scrabble. — Dean Maurer

Archer
10/9c FX
Those zany ISIS secret agents are back for Season 2, no wiser than when we left them last year but considerably poorer. In fact, the agency is going broke and Mallory (voice of Jessica Walter) must seek funding from a German billionaire who's vacationing in Gstaad, Switzerland, with his spoiled 16-year-old daughter. Terrorists have targeted her for kidnapping, and Archer must protect her. But who'll protect Archer, who has sworn to be on his best behavior ("I'm a perfect gentleman"), from the nymphomaniacal teen? — Paul Droesch

Jersey Shore
10/9c MTV
Snooki and Sammi may have squashed their feud, but the same certainly can't be said for Sammi and J-Woww. The tension between those two is as thick as ever. So naturally it doesn't sit well with Sammi the so-called "Sweetheart" when her on-again, off-again boyfriend decides to make peace with her nemesis. A punch in the face ensues (she punches him), and it's pretty clear that after tonight, Sammi and Ronnie will be off-again (again!). — Karen Kelty
