Sunday, Feb. 14 7 p.m. – MASTERCHEF CANADA – “Yes, No, Maybe So” – SEASON PREMIERE
In the Season 3 premiere of MASTERCHEF CANADA, 40 gifted home cooks from across the country audition for Michael Bonacini, Alvin Leung, and Claudio Aprile with their signature dish. With the home cooks requiring a ‘yes’ from each judge to receive an apron this season, it’s harder than ever for finalists to make it into the coveted Top 14. Those who get a ‘no’ from each judge will be sent home, while those who earn at least one ‘yes’ will have a second chance, and the opportunity to cook again for a White Apron and a place in the Top 14.
8 p.m. – SAVING HOPE –“Anybody Seen My Baby/Let Me Go”– SPECIAL 2-HOUR SEASON FINALE
Dr. Charlie Harris (Michael Shanks) is shocked to find out that nurse Kristine Fields (Nicole Underhay, MURDOCH MYSTERIES) has had a stroke. After Dr. Alex Reid (Erica Durance) discovers the nurse’s past may not be as remembered, she and Charlie must team up to find a way to bring peace to the already troubled spirit. As the Fellowship Award pitches get underway, Dr. Zach Miller’s (Benjamin Ayres) growing relationship with Dawn (Michelle Nolden) is put on the rocks after Maggie delivers some surprising news to Zach. Meanwhile, Alex’s attempt at “normal” during Charlie’s surgery is shattered when her worst fears become reality. Struggling against protocol and mounting complications, Alex dives in to save the man she loves. But does she have enough time? And will he be the same man if he wakes up? In the spirit world, Charlie wanders the halls of Hope Zion Hospital in an attempt to find meaning in his life. It’s only when his life is placed on the line, however, that he realizes that everything is for naught without the love of Alex.
Sunday, Feb. 217 p.m. – MASTERCHEF CANADA – “A Cut Above” – NEW EPISODE
