Seats at her horse carriage tailgate are coveted. Naturally, old-money widow Agnes Van Rhijn (Christine Baranski) isn’t interested in jockeying for one. She’s busy suspecting her niece Marian Brook (Louisa Jacobson) is only a stepping stone for beau Tom Raikes’ (Thomas Cocquerel) social ambitions; yet the couple’s secret courtship heats up. And her closeted son Oscar’s (Blake Ritson) scheme to woo Gladys Russell (Taissa Farmiga), Bertha and George’s naive daughter, takes an unexpected turn. The list of Agnes’ most acerbic put-downs will definitely grow.

This week, a rival senior home, Golden Horizons, offers big bucks to acquire it. The deal will be tempting, Ashford says. Still, she gives us hope that Gina will do what’s best for her newfound family: “[Golden Horizons] is fancy and snooty, and we are warm and loving,” she says. “It’s that age-old struggle of money versus the good stuff, and Gina usually picks the good stuff.” She’ll have a choice to make in her personal life as well. Having successfully donated a kidney to her old classmate, therapist Drew (Thomas Middleditch), she’s yet to voice the fact that he’s stolen her heart. “I think she’s trying to figure out who she is right now. That’s been part of her hesitancy,” Ashford says. “They just keep missing the moments to tell each other that they love each other.” But once Drew announces he’s leaving on a trip to Alaska, is that moment now? “It’s definitely going to push Gina to confront how she feels about him and maybe admit it,” the actress says. “But is it too late? I don’t know!”

Horror Hotel
MOVIES!, 8pm
Catch a Classic!

This cult-classic 1960 horror film produced in England but set in America is led by the always-terrific Christopher Lee and is filled with a chilling and menacing ambience. When the movie was initially released in Britain, it had the title The City of the Dead, which seems more apt given how much of an ominous character the small (and fictional) Massachusetts town of Whitewood — with its streets filled with a constant, unnerving mist and sinister-looking residents peering around nearly every corner — plays as a backdrop. No matter what it’s called, though, the film is a must-see or re-watch for horror fans. The story follows college student Nan Barlow (Venetia Stevenson), who, under the recommendation of her history professor (Lee), travels to Whitewood to do some research into witchcraft. Unfortunately, she gets to learn all about it firsthand when she discovers too late that Whitewood is occupied by the reincarnation of an infamous witch (Patricia Jessel) who cursed the town before being burned at the stake in 1692, and whose immortality is being sustained by human sacrifices. Following Horror Hotel tonight is another thriller related to witchcraft and devil worship: 1975’s The Devil’s Rain, starring Ernest Borgnine, Eddie Albert, William Shatner, Ida Lupino, Tom Skerritt, Keenan Wynn, a pre-fame John Travolta and Anton LaVey, the real-life founder of the Church of Satan, in a minor role (he is also credited as the film’s technical advisor). — Jeff Pfeiffer

MOVIES!, 11:15am

This cult favorite 1985 mystery/comedy is at least as much fun as the classic board game on which it is based. Set in 1954, the plot introduces six strangers who are summoned to a mysterious dinner at a secluded mansion, where they are given pseudonyms familiar to anyone who has played Clue: Mrs. White (Madeline Kahn), Professor Plum (Christopher Lloyd), Col. Mustard (Martin Mull), Mr. Green (Michael McKean), Mrs. Peacock (Eileen Brennan) and Miss Scarlett (Lesley Ann Warren). The visitors think they will finally meet the person who has been blackmailing them; instead, murder is on the menu. The hilarious cast is also led by Tim Curry as the butler, Wadsworth, and Collen Camp as maid Yvette. Befitting the whodunit nature of its source, when Clue first hit theaters, it was released with three different endings as to “whodidit.” All three endings have generally been tacked on sequentially in home video releases and television airings.
