Downton Abbey (9 p.m., UNC-TV) – Fans may be unable to maintain the stoic (read: cold, unfeeling) resolve of Mr. Carson tonight, as the beloved “Masterpiece” series ends. The two-hour series finale already aired in the U.K., so if you’re in the market for spoilers, the internet can help you out, but we aren’t interested in that rubbish here. Right now, we just want to believe that Pelham returns to marry Edith, that Mary stops being such a hateful witch, that Branson finds a nice girl, that Thomas keeps his job, that Mr. Carson is kinder to Mrs. Hughes and most importantly, that nobody dies. (Although we don’t particularly care at this point what happens to Daisy.)

The Family (9 p.m., ABC) – As this new drama, which premiered Thursday, settles into its permanent time slot, Hank encounters Adam, the reason for his incarceration.

The Walking Dead (9 p.m., AMC) – Rick and the others decide that the only way to keep peace in Alexandria is to wage a war with a new enemy. That’s right ... Negan is coming.

The Good Wife (9 p.m., CBS) – While assistant U.S. attorney Connor Fox (Matthew Morrison) assembles a grand jury, Alicia, Eli and Mike Tascioni (Will Patton) research the charges Peter is facing.
