The Flash – Season 2 Episode 9

“Running to Stand Still” The Flash caps off 2015 with a midseason finale featuring a villain team-up of Weather Wizard and the Trickster who unite with one simple goal, kill the Flash. It was a pretty simple villain story but no less effective for being one. The long and short of it is that Weather…

Doctor Who – Season 9 Episode 12

“Hell Bent” Doctor Who closes off another season with the Doctor’s return to his home planet Gallifrey and revelations about the Hybrid that has been referenced all season.

Supernatural – Season 11 Episode 8

“Just My Imagination” Supernatural takes some time to venture back into the wacky before what will likely be an intense midseason finale next week. Over the course of 11 seasons, Supernatural has never been afraid to have a little fun with the mythology of the show and add things that should be completely ridiculous. These…

Arrow – Season 4 Episode 8

“Legends of Yesterday” Arrow concludes the two part crossover event started over on The Flash and finishes setting up Legends of Tomorrow by wrapping up Hawkman and Hawkgirl’s introductions.

Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD – Season 3 Episode 9

“Closure” Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD gives some long overdue focus to Ward and how he relates to his former teammates as Coulson finally goes after him.
