“Purgatory” Arrow continues its final season victory lap with the return to where it all began and a few blasts from the past in the mix. Could Arrow ever have ended without one more trip to Lian Yu? The answer to that is a definitive no! Oliver Queen’s island prison has been a permanent fixture…

Supergirl – Season 5 Episode 8

“The Wrath of Rama Khan” Supergirl closes out the first half of season 5 with a battle for Lena’s soul and dangers coming from multiple fronts at once. This season has been really strange so far.
