Superman & Lois – Season 1 Episode 1

Superman

“Pilot” Superman returns to TV with a new show focused on the Man of Steel as a husband and father in Superman & Lois.

“The Book of Reconstruction Chapter 3: Despite All My Rage…” Black Lightning delivers a fight club episode as Lynn starts to understand the root of her addiction and Jennifer worries about her public image.

Batwoman – Season 2 Episode 5

Batwoman

“Gore on Canvas” Batwoman continues the search for Kate Kane by exploring a couple of leads that will hopefully uncover the location of Safiyah’s hidden island.

WandaVision – Season 1 Episode 7

WandaVision

“Breaking the Fourth Wall” WandaVision starts to deliver more answer as Wanda starts to lose her grip on what she considers reality.

Batwoman – Season 2 Episode 4

Batwoman

“Fair Skin, Blue Eyes” Batwoman draws on Ryan’s past to highlight the inequalities that exists within Gotham City when she gets wind of a missing child that conjures up memories of her own past.

“All-New Halloween Spooktacular!” WandaVision continues to move forward through the decades of sitcoms as Vision actively investigates his artificial surroundings.

Is Pietro from another universe or is something else going on?…

Black Lightning – Season 4 Episode 1

“The Book of Reconstruction: Chapter One: Collateral Damage” Black Lightning returns for its fourth and final season that starts with reflecting on the events of the previous one to set up what the characters need to overcome.

WandaVision – Season 1 Episode 5

“On a Very Special Episode…” WandaVision heads into the second half of the season with a massive change in tone and further revelations to be pondered.
