Bates Motel checks out for good

Here’s what’s up in the world of TV for Monday, April 24. All times are Eastern.

Top pick

Bates Motel (A&E, 10 p.m.): As we reach the end of Bates Motel, it’s time for Norman (Freddie Highmore) to cut the “Cord”—maybe. The promos for the finale haven’t given much away beyond glimpses at the past, but there’s a reckoning coming to White Pine Bay, if Romero (Nestor Carbonell) has any say. Alex McLevy will guide you through this series closer, and maybe take home a few towels and little shampoo bottles (after five seasons, he deserves them).


Regular coverage

Supergirl (The CW, 8 p.m.)
WWE Monday Night Raw (USA, 8 p.m.)
Jane The Virgin (The CW, 9 p.m.)
Better Call Saul (AMC, 10 p.m.)

Wild card

Adventure Time: Elements (Cartoon Network, 7:30 p.m.): Pancakes are in order tonight, as Finn and Jake return from their trip to the Land Of Ooo in this new miniseries. Oliver Sava wasn’t quite as blown away by this latest spate of adventures, but he does believe it “does great work reinforcing how important Finn and Jake’s friendship is for both of them.”
