DON'T MISS: "Game of Thrones" -- From King Joffrey's ill-fated wedding and the gruesome trial by combat, to last week's mammoth clash on the Wall, Season 4 of this epic fantasy has been packed with jaw-dropping, mind-blowing moments. Now comes the season finale. Can the show top itself once again? We'd bet Tyrion's (Peter Dinklage) life on it. 9 p.m. Sunday, HBO.

SUNDAY: David Tennant, who earned rave reviews for his work in "Doctor Who" and "Broadchurch," shines once again in "The Escape Artist." It's a two-part "Masterpiece Mystery!" thriller that has him playing a defense lawyer known for being a legal Houdini. 9 p.m., PBS.

MONDAY: Tonight's turbocharged episode of "24: Live Another Day" is the 200th overall for the action franchise. But will the overworked Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) have a chance to chill out and celebrate? No way. 9 p.m., Fox.

MONDAY: In the Season 2 opener of "The Fosters," the past comes back to haunt several characters. That's never a good thing, but it makes for juicy family drama. 9 p.m., ABC Family.
