Black Lightning – Season 2 Episode 8

“The Book of Rebellion: Chapter One: Exodus” Khalil and Jennifer go on the run with Tobias and Jefferson scrambling to find them in a chaotic episode of Black Lightning.

Black Lightning – Season 2 Episode 7

“The Book of Blood: Chapter 3: The Sange” Black Lightning continues its excursion to the world of South Freeland as Khalil makes a very risky decision that could have severe consequences for him.

“Dark Side of the Moon” Supergirl delivers a shock reveal during Kara and Mon’El’s interstellar road-trip as Alex has an experience that shakes her world view in a really profound way.

Supergirl – Season 3 Episode 19

“The Fanatical” Supergirl continues to explore the tension between Kara and Lena as Coville’s disciples return with a very dangerous plan that could worsen the Reign situation.
