Thoughts about how the various superhero TV shows did this week. Spoilers, duh!
THE FLASH 221
A strong episode, directed by Kevin Smith. Emotionally resonant as Barry connects with the Speed Force (?) and adds another growth point to his character arc.
Moving into the final two instalments, it’s Team Flash’s final confrontation with Team Zoom for Earth-1. Will there be surprise guest-stars? And will we find out who is under that Iron Mask?
AGENTS OF SHIELD 320
AoS has been ending season 4 on a fairly high note as the stakes go through the roof. The twist with Lash here was masterful, as Doctor Andrew Garner redeemed himself in the eyes of Agent May. Two more episodes and we will discover which Agent will lose his/her life. A eagerly anticipated ride.
The Arrow Team has to stop HIVE’s plan for global destruction and everything is going awry. Considering how powerful Darhk has become, will be intriguing to see how Olly and gang stops him.
With the deaths become common place on Superhero TV, Legends of Tomorrow said farewell to Captain Cold (Leonard Snart) as the good Captain sacrificed himself to destroy the Time Master’s Oculus machine thingy. Plot’s still lame though.
… still there’s more …
