The Blacklist

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: 8 p.m. on NBC

In the second hour of The Blacklist’s two-episode event, Red (James Spader) won’t be the star — and neither will Liz (Megan Boone). Instead, the drama will target Liz’s mother, the enigmatic Katarina Rostova (guest star Lotte Verbeek), and her turbulent spy history in what EP Jon Bokenkamp calls “essentially a 45-minute independent film that dives deep into the mythology.” “It’s a departure for us,” he explains. “It’s an episode with some big answers, an episode that we’ve been waiting a number of years to tell.” Good thing the wait’s almost over. —Shirley Li

Binge It
Need something to binge? Former *NSYNC-er Lance Bass recommends PEN15. “Oh, my God, it’s so awkward and perfect. Of course, anyone that was a ’90s kid can really relate to what was going on in that time,” says Bass of the Hulu comedy starring thirtysomething actresses Anna Konkle and Maya Erskine, who play sixth-grade versions of themselves. “Netflix is killing it right now. And Hulu. I watch everything. I’m such a TV whore. Like, I watch it all.”

American Gods

Starz

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: Streaming on Starz.com

After spending season 1 as the brooding and very confused silent sidekick, Shadow Moon (Ricky Whittle) finally understands the world of mythical deities that he has fallen into in season 2 of American Gods. “Now he’s aware that there’s a world full of magic and gods and leprechauns and dead wives, he can start to ask more questions and push the agenda more,” Whittle tells EW. As the Old Gods and New Gods careen toward a great war in the finale (April 28, 8 p.m. on Starz), revisit these season 2 installments: Shadow’s arc sees his immigrant backstory revealed in episode 2; he learns the secrets of the dead at Ibis and Jacquel’s funeral parlor in Cairo, Ill., in episode 5; and he and Wednesday journey to the past in episode 6. —Piya Sinha-Roy
