Two great episodes in a row for The Flash. It looks as if going into the final stretch, this show will be back on track. Before watching it, Run, Iris, Run, seemed like an episode that was going to be a step backwards and slow down the show. But instead, it was great all around. We get some much needed development of Iris’s character, we see why Ralph has regressed a bit and we even get some really great Harry & Cisco moments. This was a great episode that solidified Iris’s place on the team as not only team leader but as a support system for Barry.

Iris is given Barry's speed when the team fights a bus meta who has the ability to swap people's DNA.

On this week’s episode of Legends of Tomorrow, we find out yet another interesting fact about Mick: He’s keeping the rat that terrorized mini-Ray as a pet. Unfortunately Axl doesn’t survive showing that Legends of Tomorrow isn’t afraid to kill anyone…even a beloved pet rat we only recently found out about. But we at least got a makeshift rat funeral with a touching eulogy by Ray.

Oh and the Legends find out that Elvis is in possession of the Death totem and they have to stop him before he unwittingly turns Memphis into a ghost town.

This show is great.

It's here! The 100th episode of Marvel's Agents of SHIELD. We thought they would go super big with this episode but instead, it's a more narrow focus but still packs a huge emotional punch. We find out the truth about Coulson and why he's dying. It brings us full circle with his death, his resurrection and what he's become since then. Mike Peterson/Deathlok also makes his long awaited return right as Coulson is faced with his greatest fear: That he doesn't improve the lives of those he meets but dooms them. 

Oh and Fitz & Simmons get married and Deke is their grandson. Yeah. That's the "oh yeah that also happened" part of this episode so that should tell you how good it is.

Coulson finally reveals the mysterious deal he made with Ghost Rider, which will impact everyone on the team.

This week on Arrow, Thea Queen dons the hood (and sword) again as Speedy and instantly everything is right in the world again. Willa Holland's Thea Queen is one of my favorite characters in the Arrowverse. She's grown so much and this episode, plus the return of Colton Haynes as Roy Harper really set up for what feels like a good bye for both characters. If that's the route being taken, then we're happy to see Thea go out as Speedy one last time.

This week felt like a step up from a lot of stumbles and we only have a few nitpicks. First, how did the Swat Team know Team Arrow was trying to rescue Roy? Also, while having Black Siren pretend to be this Earth's Laurel Lance is a good twist, we really need the writers to stop being so heavy handed and obvious that we shouldn't trust her. We get it. We didn't need that last scene with the text message.

Overall, this was a good episode and next week Nyssa returns so the hits just keep coming.

Roy Harper returns to Star City and Oliver and Thea take action to save him when they discover the reason why he's come back.

WHAT WAS THIS?

The most interesting part of this show this was the side characters.  We are growing weary with the portrayal of the Pierce family, but appreciate the draw between Lady Eve and Tobias-who both lost out in the end.  Gambi gets his Zack Snyder Murderverse on, but it works this episode.  We are curious as to which person in the writing room thought it was a good idea to replace the n-word with the word ninjas and we provide a PSA for our White fans-never ever use that word in that context.  Ever.  We love you and want you to stay safe.   The show seems to be in a bit of a CW DC dive, and we hope it can pull out before the end of the season.

There it is. There’s The Flash episode we’ve been waiting for all season. Enter Flashtime is proof that this show can be great when it wants to. This bottle episode hit all the notes. While it doesn’t focus on Devoe, there are subtle hints that it could tie to him. It addresses the new power we saw Barry use in the courtroom with Iris before the break and even gets a good explanation as to why he can’t just do it all the time. We get character development for Jesse & Harry. We get mention of another female speedster at some point. Even Killer Frost and Caitlyn get a bit of development. This episode had it all. It makes us wonder why this show can’t be like this all the time.

Anyway, we’ll just enjoy this moment and hope that the rest of the season is more like this.

Barry, Jessie Quick and Jay Garrick slow down time when a nuclear bomb detonates in downtown Central City.

Legends of Tomorrow continues to be an awesome show. This show finds a way to balance being fun and silly and also giving us some serious, emotional moments. In this episode, we find out why the Legends have been having to go around fixing time and how it relates to Mallus. One simple explanation and now all the previous episodes that didn't seem to have a connection to the big bad, do now. It's been brilliant storytelling and just makes the show fun. 

Other things of note:

  • Damien Darhk in a terrible wig that we can only assume is the show acknowledging Oliver's terrible flashback wigs
  • The Wally West we deserve
  • Addressing the tension between Damien and Nora since Damien served her up to be the host to a demon
  • What's going on with Ava? Is she a robot?

 

Focuses on time-traveling rogue Rip Hunter, who has to recruit a rag-tag team of heroes and villains to help prevent an apocalypse that could impact not only Earth, but all of time.

After a month break, Agents of SHIELD is back and it's all hands on deck.Gotta hand it to them, no show comes out of break better than Agents of SHIELD. This show doesn't pull any punches and just because the Agents are back in the present doesn't make them safer. Ok seriously I'll stop with hand/arm puns now.

We finally get more on General Hill and it seems that she's putting together her own team. YoYo gets closer to her comic book counterpart and Coulson isn't going to make it out of this season alive. Oh and Deke's still alive and now in this time period too because...why not.

We have no idea what's going to happen next. Episode 100 is next and we know it's going to throw us for a loop. Also, time to pick up Secret Warriors again cause with YoYo's arms gone, Creel coming back and the way this whole thing is going, there might be some clues in that series.

Coulson and his team are out to rewrite the fate of humanity but they are unaware how the changes will affect one S.H.I.E.L.D. agent's life.
