Were you one of those people who tuned in for the Hostages premiere and promptly tuned out? Well, the season finale is Monday and you may be among those who are curious to find out what happened, but are afraid you won't understand a darn thing. Lucky for you, we've got a refresher course that will catch you up. Let's start from the beginning:
Alex & Sierra, Jeff Gutt and Carlito Olivero

It's actually kind of funny that each of Homeland's three season finales have, in one way or another, hinged on the same question: Will Nicholas Brody live or die?
Homeland postmortem: Show boss breaks down the "magic trick" of Season 3
OK, so that wasn't really the question in Season 2; it only felt that way because Brody (Damian Lewis) seemed like he was living on borrowed time ever since he opted not to blow himself up via suicide vest in the first season-ender. But going into Sunday's Season 3 finale — which picked up moments after Brody, working at the behest of the CIA, killed General Akbari inside the Iranian leader's secure compound — Brody's odds of surviving his latest "suicide mission" seemed quite long...
The truth behind Operation Remington was finally revealed during Scandal's midseason finale, but it just wasn't quite what we were expecting.

It's not a real wedding on Grey's Anatomy unless something goes wrong.
In April's case, she spends most of her wedding day trying to wrangle her bridesmaids and make sure her best friend Jackson will attend. But her bridesmaids are a source of much of her stress because of the tension between Meredith and Cristina. Mer is increasingly frustrated that Cristina is getting so much praise over her surgery, even though she doesn't know how the child survived.

If there's one thing you can count on in a Boardwalk Empire season finale, it's a pile of dead bodies.
And although Season 4's final hour certainly delivered some brutal (and in some cases, heartbreaking) send-offs, the episode was most significant for the number of characters who managed to escape the mayhem. Perhaps the most notable survivor was ...
Gaius Charles and Sandra Oh
Grey's Anatomy shined a spotlight on the relationship issues at Grey Sloan this week, from April afraid to invite Jackson to the wedding to Owen and Emma taking the next step — Thanksgiving together! Unfortunately, those were the least of the issues this week. Let's take a look at the bigger picture:
Jim Caviezel and Taraji P. Henson

The brain trust behind Person of Interest promised a hero would fall — it just wasn't exactly the hero some might have expected.
Although the promos for the CBS drama's three-part "Endgame" trilogy heavily suggested that Kevin Chapman's Fusco wouldn't make it out alive, Tuesday's episode pulled a switcheroo...

"What went down today was us burying the last piece of a very broken past." — Jax Teller
Sons of Anarchy has long been known for late-season switcheroos that get the outlaw motorcycle club out of a tight jam. But Tuesday's episode took that strategy to another level.
Instead of waiting for the finale to reveal this season's master stroke, Jax (Charlie Hunnam) made sure that his plan to get SAMCRO out of the gun-running business sticks for good. After shoring up the details of his plan to deliver Gaalan (Timothy V. Murphy) and a bunch of the Irish Kings' assault weapons to D.A. Patterson (CCH Pounder), Jax & Co. prepared to help Connor (Scott Anderson) bust Clay (Ron Perlman) out of his prison transport as Gaalan requested...
