The Flash (4.7) “Therefore I Am” This week on a very special episode of The Flash, we meet DeVoe, the guy the in wheelchair who we’ve mostly seen chatting with his personal assistant for the first six episodes of the season. What’s he like? Does he eat pie? Where does he get all of those fancy Christmas lights that he sticks on his body?

Gotham (4.9) “Let Them Eat Pie” In this episode of Gotham, Grundy learns something about himself, Jim stresses over a promotion, and we finally see the debut of a baseball bat covered in hammer heads.
