What to watch on Wednesday, October 28...
8pm, The CW
Laurel faces the fallout from Sara’s dip in the Lazarus Pit, and not just because the League really pads its fee with a whole mess of hidden incidentals. Elsewhere in “Beyond Redemption,” Oliver learns something surprising after seeking a favor from Capt. Lance.
“Halloween VI: Tick Tock Death” runs the Hecks through a Twilight Zone-eseque gauntlet. It couldn’t be clearer which of the anthology series’ episodes Brick will wind up in, right? (The pig-faced doctors one, obvs.)
Adam opts to spend Halloween with Dana rather than his mom in “Couples Costume,” so naturally Beverly decides to teach him a lesson about the holiday’s dangerous side (just as naturally, her plan backfires). But the couple encounter trouble of their own when they visit a haunted house where Dana loses her promise ring.
SPECIAL TIME, 9pm, NBC
“Climbing Into Bed” and “You Never Know Who’s Who” find Ruzek’s head on the chopping block after an undercover mission goes pear-shaped. Elsewhere, Burgess and Price investigate a murder, while Halstead and Lindsay kick their relationship up a notch.
“Animal Mummies” examines the ancient Egyptian ritual of mummifying and entombing feathered, furry, and fishy friends alike. Evidence shows that millions of critters were so preserved across the kingdom, including a single site that housed eight million dogs.
9pm, The CW
Ever wonder what a day in the life of a Winchester looks like to their silent third partner—the Impala? “Baby” answers that question at long last, following the brothers’ latest monster-slaying exploits through the eyes (headlights?) of their trusty ride.
Keith moves back in with Ryan after being sprung from jail in “Broken or Missing,” while Nate returns to the ring for the first time since his attack, and Garo makes Jay a tempting offer.
9:30pm, Disney XD
Star Wars Rebels
Ezra, Sabine, Zeb, and Chopper scavenge supplies from an abandoned medical station in “Always Two There Are.” (Does “all the tasty hospital Jell-O they can carry” count as supplies? I’ll say yes.) But their mission is complicated when Inquisitors arrive on the scene.
Dre views a Halloween visit from his rowdy nieces and nephews as a chance to toughen up his own brood in “Jacked o’Lantern.” Will he change his tune when the family is also joined by his cousin June Bug (Michael Strahan), who tormented him when they were kids?
American Horror Story: Hotel
John is invited to an exclusive soiree in “Devil’s Night,” but he can’t decide whether he should bring a bag of pretzel bites or a netherbeast-shaped blood fountain carved from human femurs. In less party-hearty affairs, Alex attempts to diagnose Holden’s bizarre malady.
On the minus side, Juliette’s scuffle with a fan gets her some unwanted notoriety; on the plus side, if she plays her cards right she could easily leverage that into a spot on “Brawling With the Stars.” Elsewhere in “Please Help Me I’m Fallin’,” Rayna and Markus wonder whether their creative differences can be overcome.
10pm, Comedy Central
Rumors fly that Tweek and Craig have become a romantic item in “Tweek x Craig.” While Mr. Mackey tries to sniff out the source of the gossip, Cartman becomes the object of someone else’s affection (no I know, but that’s what the logline says so it’s gotta be true).
In “The Last Temptation of Andre,” Taco teams up with Detroit Lions wide receiver Golden Tate to create a workplace fantasy league that turns the tables on his fantasy football brethren. In other bright ideas, Andre joins a Korean church for a sense of community and spiritual enlightenment the parking privileges.
You’re the Worst
