LutherOn TV this Friday: A baddie locks on Luther in the miniseries’ finale, CBS airs Teach for America, a Bones encore brings Booth’s mom to town (again) and Real Fear 2 shares more scary stories behind big-screen hits. Here are seven programs to keep on your radar.

8 pm Dear Dumb Diary (Hallmark) | Emily Alyn Lind (aka little Emily Thorne in Revenge‘s flashbacks) and Mary-Charles Jones (aka little, better-behaved Miley in Hannah Montana flashbacks) star in this made-for-TV movie about a young girl who confides her elaborate middle-school fantasies to her journal.

8 pm Bones (Fox) | Repeat to Revisit: Joanna Cassidy (Body of Proof) guest-stars as Booth’s long-lost mom – who shows up with a special request of her “little noodle” – in this encore from last season.
