DC’s Legends of Tomorrow – Season 4 Episode 13

Legends

“Egg MacGuffin” DC’s Legends of Tomorrow deals with the Ray possession plot, continues to develop the Nate/Zari relationship and gives Mick’s role as a writer attention. “Egg MacGuffin” is one of those episodes where it’s hard to put a pin in what it’s actually about because the focus is spread pretty evenly between all of…

Arrow – Season 7 Episode 21

Arrow

“Living Proof” Arrow deals with the fallout of the previous episode while exploring Oliver’s tendency to fall back on his darkest impulses. This amounts to the second time that Team Arrow have survived an explosion that reasonably should have killed them. Blowing up a building that they all happen to be in should be fatal considering…

Supergirl – Season 4 Episode 20

Supergirl

“Will the Real Miss Tessmacher Please Stand Up” Supergirl continues with Kara and Lena’s investigation into Lex Luthor’s plans as Ben Lockwood’s anti-alien stance ramps up following the death of his wife. I’ve said in many reviews that one of the greatest assets this show has is the Kara/Lena friendship. It’s so rich and interesting…

iZombie – Season 5 Episode 1

iZombie

“Thug Death” iZombie returns for its fifth and final season by picking up on where the previous season left off and showcasing what has changed for the characters. This episode picks up 6 months after the events of the fourth season finale and spends a fair chunk of time reminding the audience of the status…

The 100 – Season 6 Episode 1

The 100

“Sanctum” The 100 begins a new season with a whole new world to explore as well as the handicap of existing baggage being brought along with the characters. Last season ended on an unexpected note with Clarke and Bellamy revived after being in suspended animation for over a century to find themselves in orbit of…

Supernatural – Season 14 Episode 20

Supernatural

“Moriah” Supernatural closes out its penultimate season with focus on the current Jack problem and the return of a familiar face. I mentioned in my review of the previous episode that the attitude to what Jack had done felt out of character for the Winchesters and seemed to exist to manufacture the required drama to…

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow – Season 4 Episode 12

Legends

“The Eggplant, the Witch and the Wardrobe” DC’s Legends of Tomorrow splits the team into groups to tackle separate yet connected plots that revolve around Neron. Before I analyse the groups linked to Neron I’ll briefly discuss the one that isn’t. Zari, Mona, Mick and Charlie hang around the ship as Zari tries to figure…

Arrow – Season 7 Episode 20

Arrow

“Confessions” Arrow has the team under police interrogation in order to piece together the confusing events of a mission gone wrong. I can’t help but feel that this show is playing catch up with itself at this point. It has taken so long to reveal the main threat of the season because of the various…

Supergirl – Season 4 Episode 19

Supergirl

“American Dreamer” Supergirl focuses on Kara as the journalist as Nia picks up the superhero slack and Brainy helps James process his trauma. I’ve previously criticised this show for not giving enough attention to the non costumed side of Kara’s double life. Since season 1 finished and the show moved to the CW the CatCo…
