What to watch on Monday, September 28...
The Big Bang Theory
Hoping to set Penny at ease, Leonard pays a visit to his illicit lip-locking partner… which, on paper, sounds like it would have the exact opposite effect, but hey, I’m sure he knows what he’s doing. Elsewhere in “The Separation Oscillation,” Sheldon handles his breakup with Amy by shooting a special installment of “Fun With Flags,” and Bernadette deals with her guilt over keeping a secret from Penny.
Gordon’s back on the job just in time to track down all the lunatics who escaped from Arkham in “Rise of the Villains: Knock, Knock.” Meanwhile, Bruce consults an old friend of his father’s, Galavan considers his next move, and Nygma attempts to woo Kristin Kringle.

SEASON 2 FINALE, 9pm, ABC Family

San Francisco 2.0
Filmmaker and San Francisco native Alexandra Pelosi examines the changing nature of the city, long known as a counter-culture center but lately largely shaped by the pricey sway of the tech industry.

NCIS: Los Angeles
DEA agent Talia Del Campo needs the NCIS team’s help in “Citadel”—and this time, it’s personal. No, really. Like “her partner got killed” personal. Off the beat, Deeks answers Kensi’s suspicions with a surprise—and this time, it’s personal. Like “introducing her to his mother” personal.” Which, okay, is a little less dramatic than the other kind.
