You'd think after Universal FanCon spectacularly crashed and burned, co-founders Robert Butler and Jamie Broadnax would keep a low profile and not say anything. Particularly since every time they speak on the issue, they make it worse. You'd probably think that because you have the intelligence to know that the more you speak the more you make yourself look bad. You probably also have an ounce of shame that's apparently completely absent from anyone involved with ScamCon. Late Monday afternoon, Vulture posted this piece The Story Behind FanCon's Controversial Collapse and it makes everyone involved look even worse. 

First there's Butler inexplicably blaming a "lack of support" from the blerd community as the cause of the collapse and not the fact that he used 80% of the Kickstarter funds as a deposit for the Baltimore Convention Center. Then there's Jamie claiming she's the one who informed the hotels that they couldn't pay their $70,000 bill even though she previously claimed she had no idea how or why the hotels canceled reservations. It quickly becomes clear that Universal FanCon was all about rubbing elbows with celebrities and not building and serving the community.

Listen as Kriss and Phenom break down the audacity of the claims in the article.

We've wondered how Agents of Shield would connect to Infinity War and we get some answers this episode and it opens up a lot of possibilities. And that doesn't even address Talbot...or rather...Graviton's power trip that's probably gonna lead to the earth cracking. There's only two more episodes left and we're excited about how this all comes to an end.

Also, Infinity War is slaughtering records like Lebron is doing to Raptor fans. Dpalm and Kriss talk some theories and possibilities.

A newly determined Talbot takes Coulson to meet the enemy and attempts to avert Earth's destruction.

Oliver finally goes on trial and while we always knew he was walking out of that courtroom, the way he does it is probably the greatest moment in white privilege ever seen on a fictional television show. Oh and Rene is still stupid (as is Dinah) but at least Oliver doesn't really have to apologize. This season better end with everyone telling Oliver he was right.

The pressure mounts for Oliver who begins to wonder if he will lose everything in his battle to save Star City. A familiar face returns.

We double up to talk about two episodes in which Imra tries to tell people that Pestilence has to die because, you know, she's from the FUTURE.  Of course no one listens cause they haven't figured out that the power of love can't save everything.  Lena has a lot of explaining to do when the information about her secret "guest" is out, and we get our Black Act Off with David Harewood and Carl Lumbly.  While Shanna didn't need the Kara/Mon El showdown, The Doctor appreciated the growth and maturity it took for Kara to recognize the toxicity of their relationship and call him out on it.  This show is moving full steam ahead, and the acting is rising to the occasion, along with the storylines.

This week's episode of The Flash feels like it's placed right where it needs to be. We finally find out what Devoe is up to and the use of flashbacks to the early days of his relationship with Marlize helps. The title and theme also ties into episode 7 from earlier in the season which also gave us background on Devoe. Clearly the theme here is that while Devoe is gaining everything he wants, he's losing his humanity while Team Flash is losing things but are leaning on their humanity to survive.  We can see where this is going but that doesn't mean its bad.

We also talk about DC Universe, DC's new streaming service (that for some reason doesn't include an Unlimited service yet), Infinity War making $800 million in a week and the Ant-Man and the Wasp  trailer.

Barry and Team Flash team up with Gypsy to try to thwart Thinker's plan. Meanwhile, Cisco and Gypsy have a heart to heart talk about their relationship.
