“Hostages”

DRAMA. Murder and secrets bubble up in this week’s new episode. Someone working for the president is killed, which prompts Ellen to talk to Duncan about the planned assassination plot.

Also this episode, Ellen finds a possible bone marrow donor.

10 p.m., CBS

“Sleepy Hollow”

SUPERNATURAL. Despite the episode being called “Sanctuary,” Abbie is far from safe. She and Ichabod are enlisted to investigate a missing person’s case, which leads to checking out an old, creepy house. This being Sleepy Hollow and all, of course the house is haunted by evil spirits. Things get personal when the evil spirits claim to know secrets about Ichabod’s past.

9 p.m., FOX

“The Blacklist”

DRAMA. This week, “The Voice” isn’t stealing “Blacklist”‘s time slot, so viewers who were left hanging can finally get some answers. But of course, new questions will arise in this week’s episode, titled “Anslo Garrick.” Red’s life falls into Donald’s hands when Donald hears about a potential assassination plan. But his good intentions to save him go awry when he gets misleading information. Ritchie Coster guest stars as a new member of the blacklist. As for Liz? She gets trapped in an elevator and is trying to piece together what’s going on.
