Supergirl – Season 6 Episode 7

Supergirl

“Fear Knot” Supergirl takes the team to the Phantom Zone on a rescue mission where they have to face their deepest fears. The opening arc of this season where Kara has been trapped in the Phantom Zone has been a mixed bag as any arc on this show is but one thing it has done…

The Flash – Season 7 Episode 9

Flash

“Timeless” The Flash has Barry and Iris divided on a radical plan to deal with the threat of the Forces as Cisco considers his future. It’s quite common on this show for Barry to have an idea that many would consider to be either stupid or ill advised. He will quite often make plans without…
