It's time for TV season finales

Here's what to expect from your favorite shows

As the 2012-13 season wraps, here’s your handy scorecard of what to expect in the season finales:

SUNDAY

“Revenge” (ABC, 9 p.m.): A two-hour blowout in which a “shocking death” is promised. A core cast member will be offed. (Did his/her agent want a bigger paycheck for next season?)

MONDAY

“How I Met Your Mother” (CBS, 8 p.m.): Lily (Alyson Hannigan) and Marshall (Jason Segel) could be leaving for Rome, which adds all kinds of layers of complexity to the question of how Ted (Josh Radnor) actually met his future wife.

TUESDAY

“NCIS” (CBS, 8 p.m.): Jethro Gibbs (Mark Harmon) is in hot water over that wild hunt for the dude who killed Ziva’s (Cote de Pablo) father.

“NCIS: LA” (CBS, 9 p.m.): A missing nuke story line ends, presumably happily, but a lot of bad guys make this a dark closer.

“New Girl” (Fox, 9 p.m.): Taylor Swift is in the house, playing a guest at the wedding of Cece (Hannah Simone) and Shivrang (Satya Bhabha).

“The Mindy Project” (Fox, 9:30 p.m.): First season wraps with Mindy (Mindy Kaling) heading to Haiti on a “volunteer mission.”

MAY 15

“Supernatural” (CW, 9 p.m.): Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) have some sort of big battle with Crowley (Mark Sheppard) — maybe — and who knows who else.

MAY 16

“The Big Bang Theory” (CBS, 8 p.m.): Could Leonard (Johnny Galecki) be tempted to move to another country? How about another star system?

“The Vampire Diaries” (CW, 8 p.m.): Ghosts overrun Mystic Falls (think “zombies,” but much harder to kill).

“The Office” (NBC, 9 p.m.): Nine glorious seasons wrap, with a farewell reunion. Will Michael Scott (Steve Carell) or won’t Michael Scott make one last humiliating faux pas?

“Grey’s Anatomy” (ABC, 9 p.m.): A superstorm hit Grey Sloan Memorial in the penultimate episode; what’s left for the finale? A tsunami?
