Team Arrow struggles to adjust to their new status quo in “Training Day.” While the team has some growing pains getting used to their new role, not to mention pressure from an old enemy, the future group is getting used to each other, and Laurel gets a new subplot. There’s a lot of interesting things going on this episode.
Supergirl’s season of political strife continues with “Stand and Deliver.” This is another season where the good guys can’t seem to quite catch up and the bad guys pull one nasty surprise after another.
I’ve been reading comics much of my life, and I tend to favor the obscure and overshadowed ones for whatever reason. A long time favorite of mine is Captain Marvel, who has gone through many changes since first appearing back in 1939.
When the Marvel Studios Captain Marvel came out recently, I posted a rough history of the various Captains Marvel. With DC’s Shazam now out, and number one at the box office opening weekend, it seemed like a good time for a history of this specific character.
I’ve had a lot of problems with this Titans series. I disagree with the way they are handling just about all the characters, especially my personal favorite, Dick Grayson. So with this episode named after another favorite, “Donna Troy,” I was a bit worried. Turns out, in my view, Donna is the most accurately cast, written, and acted Titan so far. I was very impressed.
Gotham’s final season continues with “The Trial Of Jim Gordon.” The episode was directed by Erin Richards, who plays Barbara Kean on the show, and written by Ben McKenzie, Gotham’s own Jim Gordon.
Luke Cage’s second season, and sadly the series, come to an end in “They Reminisce Over You.” I’ll talk more about the end later. I will say there were a lot of surprises and twists along the way, most of which I didn’t see coming. Since it’s both a season and series finale, there will be spoilers below.
