we see the follow up to Harley and Ivy being captured, the adventures of Gotham’s newest hero, and an old ally finally starting to work up from rock bottom.
There’s some team training, an unexpected emotional outburst, bad cover stories, and some light shed on yet another secret of Blue Valley.
…revealed is the plan behind some of the recent changes in the Justice League’s membership, a new and intriguing Gotham-based team, and at least a nod in the direction of the one original Outsider we haven’t seen yet.
The Legends have found their groove of entertaining silliness, and this episode is crammed full of that. It’s also the directorial debut of Marc Guggenheim, long-time producer for Arrow and the Legends themselves.
The final season of Agents of SHIELD has the team hopping through time, and bouncing back and forth between the East and West Coasts of the United States. Their last stop has landed them in New York City in the 1970’s.
Mostly set in Arkham, we see the early days of Joker and Dr. Quinzel, before she descends into the madness of Harley. It’s a new and different take on the start of their story, and some early glimpses of some other characters.
The team sort of gets together, we see just why the bad guys are so dangerous, and there’s a great scene where Courtney finally sort of connects with Pat on a real level.
Nothing goes to plan, even by Legends standards, and a lot of weirdness happens as they try, borrowing a phrase, “To put right what once went wrong.” They give a nice nod to a classic sci fi novel (and less classic movie) with the title “I Am Legends.”
One of DC Comics’ oldest villains is Vandal Savage, and I use oldest in several senses of the word. The character first appeared in 1943, during the Golden Age of Comics, when superheroes and villains were just getting started.
The Covid-shortened season of Supergirl comes to an end with episode 19 out of what was supposed to be 22. Like Flash and Batwoman, they were forced to end production early (although unlike those shows, the whole cast is coming back as far as we know), and improvise a finale out of what they had.
After an impressive first season, the arguably strangest superheroes in the world are back. The Doom Patrol apparently has a much shorter second season, but they’re off to a crazed and crammed start.
