A clash of NFC West playoff contenders is on tap tonight at CenturyLink Field, where Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks hope to get a leg up in their home game against Kyler Murray and the Arizona Cardinals. The Cards drew first blood in these teams’ season series last month in the desert, when they came from 10 points down in the fourth quarter to ring up a thrilling 37-34 victory in overtime.
When “Supernatural” premiered on what was then The WB network in 2005, creator Eric Kripke mapped out a three-season plan for the show, which he later expanded to five. Now, Sam and Dean Winchester (Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles) end their ghost-busting road trip, as the longest-running live-action American fantasy series in TV history closes a 15-season run. Whatever happens in this series finale, we can borrow an epitaph from another cult hit, “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” for a final word on Sam and Dean: “They saved the world a lot.”
Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green) and her crew find themselves stuck in a time loop after conman and smuggler Harry Mudd (guest star Rainn Wilson) manages to slip aboard the vessel in the new “Magic to Make the Sanest Man Go Mad.” Mudd’s scheme is to murder Lorca (Jason Isaacs) and sell the ship to the Klingons, but when his plot is foiled, he blows up the craft instead, triggering the time anomaly. Anthony Rapp and Doug Jones also star.
