The Flash (5.10) “The Flash & The Furious” Where does The Flash Episode 10 fit in continuity with its previous episodes? All of these characters remember every minute detail that happened to them in November, but I can’t remember anything but the broad strokes, and something about Barry and Oliver wearing a lot of leather. Have I been elseworlded or has the show become too convoluted? No, that’s impossible, I’ve been elseworlded.
Gotham (5.2) “Trespassers” Gotham’s in a bad spot, folks! The city, not the show. Well, I guess the show’s in a bad spot because it’s going off the air after this half season, but one episode in and the fifth season is pretty good. I say that as someone who feels like he’s been kicked in the head every time he watches an episode of Gotham regardless of its quality. Is that something I should get checked out?
Supergirl (4.9) “Elseworlds, Part Three” Welcome to Elsewords, the newest Scrabble rip-off to play with all your inter-dimensional Facebook friends. No? Still Elseworlds? OK whatever. Home stretch. Let’s get this done.
Arrow (7.9) “Elseworlds, Part Two” Welcome to Elfworlds, where we eliminate the middle man and pass Santa’s Workshop savings on to YOU! Oh wait … now I’m being told it’s ELSEworlds. What the hell is Elseworlds? Well, whatever it is, it’s invaded this week’s Arrow and I have to recap it, so let’s pull the Band-Aid off quickly, shall we?
Legends of Tomorrow (4.8) “Legends of To-Meow-Meow” Whelp, Legends has always been a show that revels in being off-the-rails batshit crazy, but this episode seemed to give us a glimpse of what happens when there are no supervisors in the writers' room. Still, we got to see Hot Gideon, so I suppose all is forgiven.
Game of Thrones (7.7) “The Dragon and the Wolf” With an episode title like “The Dragon and the Wolf,” I suppose, deep down, I knew what I was getting. And you better believe that Dany knew what she was getting deep down, if you know what I mean. It’s not something I wanted to see, but the Targaryen family motto has always been “If you can’t keep it in your pants, keep it in the family,” so . . . what the hell(s)?
