What to Watch Monday: Dallas Wraps, The Voice Battles, a Bones Reunion, H50 Prequel and More

DallasOn TV this Monday: The Dallas finale solves J.R.’s murder, Top of the Lake gets to the bottom of its mystery, Defiance is home to new extraterrestrials and Bones hosts a mother-and-child reunion. As a supplement to TVLine’s original features (linked within), here are 10 programs to keep on your radar.

8 pm The Voice (NBC) | As the battle rounds begin, Hillary Scott, Pharrell Williams, Sheryl Crow and Joel Madden help the coaches prepare their product.

8 pm Bones (Fox) | The Jeffersonian team investigates the murder of a broker-by-day/stripper-by-night, while Booth’s mom (played by Joanna Cassidy, Six Feet Under) shows up after a 24-year absence. (Watch a sneak peek of their reunion.) Brandon Barash (General Hospital) also guest-stars.

8 pm Oh Sit! (The CW) | Season 2 premiere: This go-around, the musical chairs competition features new obstacles, water rounds and “slick zones.”

8 pm How I Met Your Mother (CBS) | Lily fears that Marshall will resent her when The Captain offers her a year-long art consulting gig — in Rome.

PREVIEW | The Following Sneak Peek: Agent Weston Realizes Sheriff Roderick Is the Enemy!

9 pm Dallas (TNT) | Double-episode season finale: The answer to the question “Who killed J.R.” is revealed — as is, presumably, the identity of the hat-wearing woman (Pam?!) in Zurich! (Nope, not yet renewed.)

9 pm Defiance (Syfy) | Two-hour series premiere: Set in a post-apocalyptic boomtown of the near future, this series finds Earth trying to adjust to the arrival of seven (!) unique alien races. The cast includes Julie Benz (Dexter), Grant Bowler (Ugly Betty), Jaime Murray (Warehouse 13) and Mia Kirshner (The L Word). See what Benz has to say about the project.

9 pm Top of the Lake (Sundance) | Two-hour miniseries finale: With the birth of Tui’s baby imminent, Robin desperately tries to get to the young girl before someone else does.

9 pm 2 Broke Girls (CBS) | In one of Beth Behrs’ “favorite episodes ever,” Candy Andy (Ryan Hansen) is back, and something may be funky with his Fun Dip when Caroline develops a rash after their night together.

10 pm Castle (ABC) | Giant footprints at the site of a vicious murder lead Scully and Mulder Beckett and Castle to confront the possibility that Bigfoot is the killer.

10 pm Hawaii Five-0 (CBS) | When McGarrett crosses into North Korea to retrieve the remains of a fallen friend, he recounts his last deadly mission there – thus cuing up a “prequel” to the series’ pilot. Jimmy Buffett and Terry O’Quinn return as Frank Bama and Joe White; Robert Picardo (Star Trek: Voyager) guest-stars.

    • Replying to the top post, so people can see this. There will likely be a preemption of most of the major networks. Revolution has already been preempted. We should know more soon.

  • So excited for Dallas! Last week’s episodes were amazing and really set the stage for tonight. Can’t wait to see what happens with John Ross and Pamela now that they are married. They really can anchor this show as the power couple for years to come. TNT could have taped the episodes while LH was still alive but not aired them until summer or aired 8 in the winter and the other 8 in the summer. But the ratings have been remarkably steady and add a lot when DVR usage is added in. I don’t care when Dallas comes back just as long as it does!

    • Can’t believe Terry O’ Quinn is back on H5O. Disappointed after the demise of his last TV gig: 666 Park Avenue.

  • Definitely watching Bates Motel. It has gotta be my new favorite show. I really am surprised by how much I enjoyed this new show and I am excited it’s already renewed for Season 2. It moved from a “DVR show” to a “Watch Live” show.

  • Busy, busy Monday. Watch DWTS and Castle; DVR HIMYM, Hawaii Five-0, and encores of Dallas, and catch Revolution on demand later this week.

  • Monday nights are busy. I’m lucky that a lot of cable shows air early where I live so it creates less conflict. I DVR everything: Bates Motel, Defiance, Dallas, The Voice, 2 Broke Girls, Hawaii 5-0, The Following, Castle, and Revolution.

  • Bones, Castle, Defiance, and The Following. Because Kevin Bacon is in it.
    Do we have a conversation anywhere about House of Cards?
    Love, love, love Kevin Spacey. He’s absolutely at the top of my list. (What lists there be)
    Can’t not know about Defiance if you have the internet or are in my house with 2 guys playing the game on xbox360. A minecraft show would be more my thing. But dystopian shows can be interesting.
