Tonight had faltering dramatic franchises, and one shining comedic franchise. Married, the best of the night, was considerate enough to shine one more spotlight on hidden weapon Brett Gelman before next week's season finale, and the actor, along with the writing and fellow cast members, did not take the opportunity for granted with an episode filled some of the smartest dialogue and character growth I've seen on a television show. Also, Lincoln needs to become a regular character on the show because actor Richard Gant is great. Heroes: Reborn was so close to being good but relied too much on the old favorites to actually bring anything new to the table that is already jam-packed with superhero television shows, which is a great problem to have, and had me question the show. No matter how much the show bombards viewers with new characters, locations, and plots, the same poorly executed themes are still there, especially Jack Coleman's brainwashed Noah Bennett. Scandal, the worst of the night, is another show that isn't bringing anything new to the conversation (eg the show doing a Princess Di related in their fifth season is hardly what I would call fresh), and it's not like the show is even telling its stories well. The big plot twist of who killed the princess was so obvious that not even the haphazard pacing of the episode could distract me enough to not roll my eyes when the characters finally figured it out.
