NCIS: New Orleans (CBS)

No one anticipated the tragic death of brave and charming son of the South Special Agent Christopher Lasalle (Lucas Black, above left, with Scott Bakula) in the November 5 hour. What didn’t surprise us: The original cast member went out a hero, taking a bullet for a woman during an investigation.

This Is Us - Season 4

This Is Us (NBC)

The family drama that routinely drops jaws floored fans in April with a glimpse at a future in which Kevin (Justin Hartley) has a son, matriarch Rebecca (Mandy Moore) may have Alzheimer’s and sister Kate (Chrissy Metz) is nowhere in sight.

Dead to Me (Netflix)

In the pitch-black comedy’s premiere, Judy (Linda Cardellini), a seemingly well-meaning woman, befriends Jen (Christina Applegate), a widow mourning her husband, who was killed by a hit-and-run driver. During the episode’s final moments, Judy enters her storage unit, which houses…a Ford Mustang with a dented grill!

Veronica Mars (Hulu)

It doesn’t take a sleuth to figure out why the crime drama outraged fans with its Season 4 finale. After sarcastic but lovable Logan Echolls (Jason Dohring) and his longtime girlfriend, P.I. Veronica Mars (Kristen Bell), finally said “I do,” he was killed by the notorious Neptune bomber, robbing Veronica (and viewers) of a happy ending.

THE MANDALORIAN
Disney+

The Mandalorian (Disney+)

Star Wars fans assumed Yoda was one of the last of his kind…until this series’ premiere revealed an interstellar bounty hunter (Pedro Pascal) was hired to capture an infant (above) from Yoda’s still-unnamed species. Minds blown, ours were.
