TV series plan big season finales

The end is near, at least for these series, as the 2012-13 season wraps. Here’s your handy scorecard of what basics to expect and when over the next few weeks. Warning, spoilers ahead:

Tonight

“Glee”: The great Patty Duke arrives for this closer along with Meredith Baxter.

“Two and a Half Men”: Walden has a new girlfriend. But he’s especially into grandma, who looks like Marilu Henner.

Sunday

“Revenge”: A two-hour blowout in which a core cast member will be offed.

Monday

“How I Met Your Mother”: Lily (Alyson Hannigan) and Marshall (Jason Segel) could be leaving for Rome.

Tuesday

“The Mindy Project”: First season wraps with Mindy (Mindy Kaling) heading to Haiti on a “volunteer mission.”

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

“NCIS”: 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”: A missing-nuke storyline ends, presumably happily, but a lot of bad guys make this a particularly dark closer, or so show runners promise.

Wednesday

“CSI”: Ozzy Osbourne makes a cameo when D.B. Russell (Ted Danson) goes to a Black Sabbath concert.

“Supernatural”: 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 Office”: Nine glorious seasons wrap with a farewell reunion.

“Grey’s Anatomy”: A superstorm hit Grey Sloan Memorial in the penultimate episode; what’s left for the finale? A tsunami?

“The Big Bang Theory”: Could Leonard (Johnny Galecki) be tempted to move to another country?

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

“Elementary”: The worthy freshman will see “Nurse Jackie’s” Dominic Fumusa turn up in a cameo; he plays a bodyguard with – duh – “secrets.”

May 22

“Nashville”: Brad Paisley makes an appearance.

“Modern Family”: The gang flies to Florida after the death of Phil’s (Ty Burrell) mom, but an outstanding arrest warrant awaits Gloria (Sofia Vergara) in the Sunshine State.
