When a crafty Elizabeth (Tea Leoni) is called upon to negotiate with Iran regarding their escalating nuclear program, she is determined to do so peacefully instead of following the president's (Keith Carradine) preferred go-to strategy of military intervention. Meanwhile, precocious Jason (Evan Roe) interviews his father (Tim Daly) for a school report in "Blame Canada." John Finn, Robert Klein and Johanna Day guest star.
It's not that crime shows don't feature enough corpses, as it is but they may get a new source, thanks to one of the entrepreneurs. The person is a Tampa, Fla. scientist who has created a synthetic and realistic cadaver -- the actual purpose of which is to aid medical testing. Also, two Seattle residents put forth their idea for personalized action figures, and several Philadelphia women pose a concept for online interior design.
Masters of Illusion
In a new episode called "Gravity Defiers, Compactors and Transformations," host Dean Cain welcomes featured magicians Nathan Burton, Tom Burgoon, Greg Frewin, Arthur Trace, Matt Marcy, Les Arnold and Dazzle, and Tommy Wind, who show off their diverse skills ranging from interactive mind magic to more conventional comedy routines as they perform feats of magic in front of a studio audience.
As hordes of freed Omec hunt Defiance citizens, most of the community's power players -- Nolan, Amanda, Datak, Irisa (Grant Bowler, Julie Benz, Tony Curran, Stephanie Leonidas) and their friends -- undertake a potential suicide mission to end the threat once and for all in the season finale, "Upon the March We Fittest Die." Anna Hopkins and Jaime Murray also star.
In a new episode called "Trajectory," the team hopes to uncover the truth behind the mysterious death of a young man that occurred just a few years ago.

Whose Line Is It Anyway?
Keegan-Michael Key -- half of the popular comedy team Key & Peele -- is on hand to contribute to the humor in this episode. He joins Wayne Brady, Colin Mochrie and Ryan Stiles to add his on-the-spot creativity to the improvisational sketches and songs suggested by the studio audience ... which should be especially interesting, given the distinctive brand of amusement that Key has become known for. Aisha Tyler is the host.
Penn & Teller: Fool Us
When it comes to pulling off masterful illusions, veteran magicians Penn & Teller are at the top of their game, so it's not easy to put one over on them. That's exactly what aspiring magicians Bill Cook, Wes Barker, Matt Holtzclaw and David Regal have to do, however, if any of them expects to be invited to perform with the duo at their Las Vegas casino show. The rookies do get a break, though: Penn & Teller get to see each performer's trick only once before trying to figure it out in the episode "Mission Impossi-Ball."
There's plenty of suspicion to go around the city in "Everyone Has a Cobblepot," as Gordon (Ben McKenzie) investigates Commissioner Loeb (guest star Peter Scolari) and Fish Mooney (Jada Pinkett Smith) is thought to be in cahoots with Dr. Dulmacher (guest star Colm Feore). The young Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) gets a new reason to pursue his own campaign against crime. Nicholas D'Agosto (as Harvey Dent) and Nicholle Tom ("The Nanny") also guest star.
Zubin Mehta leads one of the greatest orchestras in the world in "The Vienna Philharmonic Summer Night Concert 2015," a new episode featuring Austrian piano virtuoso Rudolf Buchbinder as soloist.

Tabor Calchek (guest star David Hewlett), the team's handler, returns in the new "Episode Twelve" to send the crew on what they expect to be a fairly routine mission to retrieve a scientist being held against his will on a distant world. As so often happens on this series, however, the assignment turns into a horrific ordeal for one team member, orchestrated by someone from out of her past. Wil Wheaton guest stars. The season finale immediately follows.
Cold Justice: Sex Crimes
Casey and Alicia travel to Rogers, Ark., to re-open the 17-year-old unsolved investigation into the rape of a teacher on an elementary school campus.
