Here’s what’s happening in the world of television for Wednesday, April 18. All times are Eastern.
The Originals (The CW, 9 p.m.): It’s been a while since we’ve last seen everybody’s favorite New Orleans-set struggle among warring supernatural clans, but The Originals returns tonight with someone on a very clear mission: After seven long years, Hope is going to bring her father Klaus back to the Big Easy, damn it. Now that Elijah’s no longer by his side, we’ll see how her dad reacts to that plan.
The Looming Tower (Hulu): It’s the final countdown for The Looming Tower to loom no more, as the miniseries concludes and the day we all knew was coming finally arrives. A great choice tonight if you’re looking for a lighthearted little pick-me-up about the most horrific terrorist attack in U.S. history.
