BEST BETS

The Washington Times Daily - - TELEVISION -

Reign / 9:00pm (50) A show about Euro­pean roy­alty seemed like a big swing for a net­work largely weaned on dra­mas about the su­per­nat­u­ral and su­per­heroes, but this saga man­aged to have a healthy four-sea­son run. That ends with the se­ries fi­nale, “All It Cost Her ... ,” in which Mary’s (Adelaide Kane) de­ci­sion seals not only her own fate but that of her coun­try. El­iz­a­beth (Rachel Skarsten) girds her­self for bat­tle, lit­er­ally, but re­al­izes what she and Mary have in com­mon.

Dark Mat­ter / 9:00pm (Syfy) In the new episode “Wel­come to the Rev­o­lu­tion,” the Raza gets a dis­tress call from Tabor (David Hewlett), their han­dler, but when the crew re­sponds, he is nowhere to be seen. In­stead, they en­counter his for­mer as­sis­tant, Adrian (Mishka The­baud), who awaits them on an outer colony that’s in a tense con­fronta­tion with their cor­po­rate over­lords. Be­fore Six and Two (Roger Cross, Melissa O’Neil) can de­bate whether to get in­volved, that de­ci­sion is taken out of their hands.

The Great Bri­tish Bak­ing Show / 9:15pm (22) The culi­nary com­pe­ti­tion gets its fourth Amer­i­can sea­son, as twelve ama­teur cooks set out to flour — er, flower — in the kitchen while their skills are as­sessed by re­turn­ing judges Mary Berry and Paul Hol­ly­wood. The con­tes­tants’ first mis­sion will be a piece of “Cake,” lit­er­ally if not other­wise, as they tackle chal­lenges that in­cor­po­rate sponge and choco­late el­e­ments.

Wynonna Earp / 10:01pm (Syfy) 4:30am (Syfy) A prickly lot even at the best of times, Wynonna (Me­lanie Scro­fano) and her team are find­ing it very hard to ad­just to the new world or­der in which they find them­selves, and the arrival in Pur­ga­tory of one of Wynonna’s old friends only com­pli­cates those per­sonal dy­nam­ics in a new episode called “Shed Your Skin.”

“The Great Bri­tish Bak­ing Show” airs Fri­day on PBS.
