Arrow on The CW at 8:00pm ET. Fifth season finale.

Empire on Fox at 9:00pm ET. Third season finale. Right now I’m working on a presentation about Eleanor of Aquitaine, and I am reminded that we do currently have a (very loosely) fictionalized version of her on TV in Cookie Lyon. Since the first season of Empire was very clearly based on The Lion in Winter, Cookie is Eleanor to Lucious’s Henry II.

Law & Order: Special Victims Unit on NBC at 9:00pm ET. Two-hour 18th season finale. How many ways can Olivia be put into personal peril in two hours? I am sure that NBC will find out.

Archer on FXX at 10:00pm ET. Eighth season finale.

Fargo on FX at 10:00pm ET. So far, my theory for what this season is “about” is, what happens when low-level tough guys or bad people run up against professional bad people? But we’ll see! Doesn’t seem like it’s gonna be a fun ride getting there for a lot of the characters.
