“GAME OF THRONES” (9 p.m., HBO): From King Joffrey’s ill-fated wedding and the gruesome trial by combat, to last week’s mammoth clash on the Wall, Season 4 of this epic fantasy has been packed with jaw-dropping, mind-blowing moments. Now comes the season finale. Can the show top itself once again? We’d bet Tyrion’s (Peter Dinklage) life on it.
“The Escape Artist” (9 p.m., PBS): David Tennant, who earned rave reviews for his work in “Doctor Who” and “Broadchurch,” shines once again in “The Escape Artist.” It’s a two-part “Masterpiece Mystery!” thriller that has him playing a defense lawyer known for being a legal Houdini.
