We are near the end folks! With the end of March comes the end of this horrible month of no TV. This week we see a few shows come back, but we also get a much awaited indie release, and a blu-ray release of a major award winner. Here’s what not to miss this week!

Oliver Queen and gang returned last week with a solid entry featuring another returning villain. This week, Arrow faces off against another vigilante known as “The Savior” who kills people who’ve done wrong, and claims to have been inspired by Arrow. Looks like our hero is about to learn the impact he’s made the hard way. (Wednesday at 8pm on the CW)

ABC’s comedy staple returns this week with Lily dealing with a bully in school. That’s definitely the main reason that I’ll be watching. But still, the rest of the episode sounds pretty solid as well. Phil teaches his kids basic repair skills, Claire and Cam argue over a landscaping issue, and Jay has to spend a day alone with the baby. (Wednesday at 9pm on ABC)

From the director of the divisive but undeniably well acted Blue Valentine comes this thriller with an impeccable cast. Ryan Gosling, Eva Mendes, and Bradley Cooper headline this story of a motorcycle stunt driver turned bank robber juxtaposed with a good cop with a corrupt boss. The film has received praise thus far, and could be one of the early critical hits  of the year. (In select theaters Friday)

ABC’s hit drama returns this week after the cliffhangers a month ago stunned fans everywhere. As we head into the last leg of the season, what will come of Rayna’s marriage? Will Juliette ever find happiness? Will Scarlett and Gunnar ever make it as a couple? With eight episodes left, Nashville is likely here to stay until the finale. (Wednesday at 10pm on ABC)

If you followed the Filtered Lens anytime between last November and the Oscars, you know how much I love Lincoln. Spielberg totally redeemed himself for War Horse with a biopic featuring one of the best performances of our time, courtesy of Daniel Day Lewis. This week, the film is finally available to bring home. (In stores Tuesday)
