Shanna and The Doctor discuss the Supergirl Roadtrip to space as they seek more information on Reign from an old dark Priestess. Through some convoluted challenges, only women can go, so Kara must recruit LiveWire and Psi. Along with Imra, they infiltrate Fort Rozz but are quickly intercepted by Reign. We also debate the appropriateness of sharing your romance grief with a 12 year old.
Later, P-Funk and DB who host the Premium Star Wars Rebels cast join us to discuss the Blackity Black show Black Lightning, in an episode that saw a lot of bodies fall. This show is so gritty and realistic with its stories, and has already started sparking debate, from the meta narrative on the futility of respectability to the debate around the use of the word "fast" to discuss young Black girls. We also discuss the fact that this ain't your momma's CW DC television show, as the pacing is rapid and the stakes are high. And yeah, about White thieves-thank you Black Lightning for giving us one this week.

Either you're in or you're out on Ralph Dibny. That's pretty much the takeaway from The Elongated Knight Rises. If you don't like Ralph, then this campy filler episode is a drag. If you do like him, then this was a nice distraction from the DeVoe storyline which has been pretty dark. We debate whether folks are being too harsh on Ralph because it's not what they expected or if it's just that bad.
One thing we do agree on though is that the scenes with Barry in jail just don't make any sense. Last week Barry was so fast he had a full conversation with Iris in the courtroom that no one saw. This week he's worried about being spotted by cameras in the prison? None of it makes sense and we feel that they could easily solve these issues with simple throwaway lines.
Finally we talk about how the "mystery girl" (It's Dawn Allen folks) fits into the storyline and what it could mean for this season or the next.
Oh and if you're gonna take on Bill Goldberg in prison, use the shank.
