TV THIS WEEK: Game of Thrones' finale, Person of Interest says goodbye, and more!

We're still waiting for the full measure of summer shows to join us, so it's another relatively light week, but that doesn't mean there's nothing to watch. We've got a ton of finales, including the final episode of Person of Interest and the wrap-up for this season of Game of Thrones.

Check out the week in TV below. What's on your watchlist?


Person of Interest (CBS) Tuesday, 10 p.m. - "return 0"

Series finale! - Person of Interest began as a procedural drama with a sci-fi bent, and over the course of its run it built itself into a show with a rich genre mythology that fans could happily sink their teeth into. What started as a potentially predictable high-concept show evolved into something more, and we've happily watched as it's grown into what it is now. Unfortunately, that run comes to an end this week. We didn't really see the end of Person of Interest coming, but in the coming days we have to face it. Check out a preview below.


Wynonna Earp (Syfy) Friday, 10 p.m. - "I Walk the Line"

Season finale! - At this point, we still don't know if Wynonna Earp is coming back for a second season, but despite modest ratings it's built a devoted fan following, particularly when you consider the diversity possibilities offered by its cast and ongoing storylines. It hasn't packed the ratings punch of other Syfy series, but it's certainly no slouch, and its genre-hybrid story formula has immense potential. We'll find out soon enough if it will get a second season. For now, get ready for a showdown.


Game of Thrones (HBO) Sunday, 9 p.m. - "The Winds of Winter"

Season finale! - Unlike so many shows, Game of Thrones has the luxury of knowing that it gets to end its run on its own terms. Another season is already on the way, and the showrunners already know where they're heading. That the show will get a proper ending is no longer in doubt, but we still have to wait a while to see what exactly that ending will be. Will the series adhere to creator George R.R. Martin's wishes even as he still hasn't finished his series of novels, or will it forge a new path? This week's episode, named after the forthcoming sixth book in Martin's saga, will no doubt give us clues. Check out a preview below.
