Things go from bad to worse in Supergirl’s “All About Eve.” Despite being in the title, Eve Tessmacher doesn’t actually show up much in the episode, although she’s certainly talked about a lot. We see some friendships mended, an ugly plan looking worse and worse, one ally resolving a crisis, and another just starting one.
There’s a lot going on as Team Arrow deals with issues of “Inheritence.” A recurring theme on the show seems to be unexpected betrayals. I’m mildly surprised the entire team isn’t utterly, ravingly paranoid by this point.
For a while now, there’s been a duplicate of Supergirl running around in the background, getting a few scenes here and there. She’s been in Kasnia, a made up, Russia-like country that has made trouble for various DC Comics and Arrow-verse characters. In “House of L,” we get to see her story.
Gotham continues its final season with the emergence of yet another Batman villain at least a decade too early. Which one isn’t exactly a secret, given the title is “I Am Bane.” We get an origin for the character that has nothing to do with his comics one, and a reveal of who one of the lurkers this season actually is. That, actually, makes Bane’s origin jibe fairly closely with one of the movie versions.
There are no spoilers in this review. I even had someone else check it over for me, just to be sure.
“Time Bomb” starts off with Nora getting some advice. Much of the episode does one of those somewhat clunky parables where the problem of the week parallels a problem one of the characters is having.
Black Lightning wraps up the second season with a lot of twists and turns. I wasn’t sure where they were going, and when the end came, I didn’t see it coming at all. I was thrilled when Black Lightning debuted, and, while it’s had problems, I still think it’s a great show.
