“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…

“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.

“American Dreamer” Supergirl focuses on Kara as the journalist as Nia picks up the superhero slack and Brainy helps James process his trauma.
