Dancing with the Stars had special guest judge AND performer Cher by this week, which means everyone danced to Cher songs too. Cher sang "Believe" at the top of the episode and then later on in the episode sang "I Hope You Find It" totally decked out in feathers, in a pre-taped segement. Later as a judge, she really let her feelings fly: namely, she got bleeped when doling out her opinions about Val and Elizabeth's jazz routine. After being enthusiastic about "the rough part," Cher continued with, "I like it when…. [BIG LONG BLEEP]."
On The Voice, Xtina and Flo Rida took to the stage for the flashiest of performances of "How I Feel" - very 20s-esque, although Xtina's hat was more Blossom, less Gatsby. Additionally, Adam Levine tried on a new look. Some call it suave; I call it choir boy-meets-Mormon; you be the judge:
Over in Bluebell, Zoe was all a-twitter because a town poll found only 13 per cent of people believed Joel - her current beau - was the man for her. This led to zip-lining with tweens and George in the wilderness and Joel conquering his feeling while Wade looked on with the most amusing of facial expressions and (thankfully) pointing out the real issue isn't George - it's that Zoe's still in love with him. (TEAM WADE ALL THE WAY!) By episode's end the tweens and the town buoyed Joel's approval rating and that's that.
After a three week hiatus, Sleepy Hollow returned with John Noble as "The Sin Eater." (Ie. "A person who has the power to cleans the wicked of their sins" and "reaches in your soul and swallows your sins.") Moving on, The Freemasons kidnapped Ichabod - even though he's a member. They wanted to cut Ichabod's blood tie with Headless, which they wanted to do by having him kill himself. Probably not an ideal fate from Ichabod's perspective. In Abbie's quest to find Ichabod, she's visited by Katrina which led her to a man known as the Sin Eater (Fringe's fan fav Noble), who unlinked Ichabod and Headless with a little blood drinking.
How I Met Your Mother brought back its titular character and gave us a belated Halloween treat: seeing Ted propose to her at the lighthouse in Farhampton (Far Hampton?) two years down the road. Unfortunately we had to endure Lily (in a great dress) going all Hulk on glassware for 22 minutes and Robin antagonizing her future mother-in-law over scrambled eggs. But those Stinsons sure give great big compassionate hugs.
Lastly on The Blacklist, our baddy of the week was none other than Dr. Wilson of House fame (aka Robert Sean Leonard), who was out to infect the world with a crazy raee disease because his son had it and he was looking for a cure. The bigger picture takeaway from this episode is that Red bought a house - the one where he "raised his family" - and then blew it up. How many of you think Red HAS TO BE Elizabeth's father now? Hit the comments with your theories.
