Tonight, after five seasons, the Canadian-made Flashpoint comes to a thrilling conclusion

10:02 p.m., CTV
Since it first appeared on Canadian (and U.S.) TV screens back in 2008 this made-in-Canada police drama demonstrated it could deliver the action-packed goods over the course of more than 70 episodes. Expect tonight’s series finale — the conclusion of a two-part storyline — to be an explosive one as we bid a fond farewell to the members of Toronto’s Strategic Response Unit (Hugh Dillon, Enrico Colantoni, David Paetkau, Amy Jo Johnson and Sergio Di Zio).
