Show #1 –Blue Bloods (ABC)
Premieres: Friday, Sept. 26 at 10/9c
- Why You Should Watch: I have alway loved this show! It’s a solidly good faithful family and one of few that actually show a family praying together on screen. The episodes tell strongly defined stories with real visible moral cover
- Where We Left Off: Danny went rogue investigating the death of a woman who jumped off a balcony after two DAs sanitized the scene before he got there. With Erin’s help, they discovered some corrupt dealings in the upper reaches of the NYPD and DA’s office. Inspector General Peterson stepped down, telling Frank that their relationship had compromised her ability to remain objective.
- What’s Next: Baez is here to stay! Marisa Ramirez will be upped to series regular next season, and will be in the line of fire on the season premiere when Baez and Danny work with the DEA on a drug bust. But by the second episode, they’ll be forced to partner-swap with another team when the other duo’s partnership is strained after one of the men is outed as gay. There is also a new DA in town, with whom Frank clashes after Dutton refuses to let him question an officer in custody.

Show # 2 – Hawaii Five-0 (CBS)
Premieres: Friday, Sept. 26 at 9/8c
- Why You Should Watch: It boasts one of the most diverse casts on television. The storylines are quick smart views into traditional life on Hawaii.
- Where We Left Off: Catherine said farewell and Grover became a full-fledged member of the Five-0 squad. Wo Fat broke out of prison and needs to discuss something with McGarrett — but it’s unclear what that is.
- What’s Next: Though there’s no time jump in between the Season 4 finale and the Season 5 premiere, the season opener finds the island of Oahu mysteriously abandoned. “It’s like a ghost town,” showrunner Peter Lenkov tells TVGuide.com. As the season progresses, the biggest shift will be the addition of Grover to the team. While he and McGarrett certainly have had their differences in the past, the two “definitely see more eye to eye” after the events in the Season 4 finale, Lenkov says. Also coming on board is Amanda Setton as a new eager-to-please protégé of Max’s. The loss of Catherine still weighs heavily on McGarrett’s mind, however, even as he meets a woman who has ties to his father and forges a connection with her. As far as the unanswered questions surrounding Wo Fat, those will be resolved by Episode 7, the show’s 100th episode.

Harrison, who had a gun pointed at his head in the final moments of the episode.
- What’s Next: Bad news: Harrison is dead! And OPA — or what’s left of it — will not handle that news very well.
