Arrow continues its eighth and final season/farewell tour as we get to visit more things from the past. The show is impressively managing to move the story forward while giving curtain calls to elements we’ve seen before.
The darkness is gathering around Marias, and the new champion is still trying to figure out what he can do. Last time, there were some surprising revelations, and a few of the ones that had been presented as good guys seem a lot more questionable now.
The disappointing season of Supergirl gets a bit better here, but that’s not much of an accomplishment. There are still a lot of questionable choices and weird character moments.
There have been a lot of wild developments this season of Punisher, and last episode pushed several of them to the breaking point.
I have to give the writers on Batwoman credit for diverging some from the pattern of the other hero shows they’ve done on the CW. They set up the status quo, but didn’t immediately drop into “villain of the week” mode. The background issues are still around, and arguably more important than this week’s villain.
When I heard about the HBO show, I wasn’t sure what to think about it, but I’m a hero geek, so it was foregone conclusion I was going to watch. So far, it’s been better than I hoped, and I’m really finding myself absorbed by this world and story.
Arrow continues their eighth and final season with a goodbye tour of stories past. “Welcome to Hong Kong” is a nod to many events in season three, with more flash forwards of the now somewhat less dark future of Star City.
Two episodes ago, Deathstroke captured Jason Todd, the second Robin. Last episode was almost entirely a flashback, telling about the Titans’ tragedy several years ago that led to the death of Aqualad (Garth, we barely knew ye) and the start of something very dark for the young heroes. Now, we’re back in the present.
