It’s been a rough season for Jessica and her friends. Everything ends here: the season, the series, the Marvel/Netflix world, and this incarnation of the character from what Krysten Ritter has said.
The Crisis on Infinite Earths keeps going, claiming more aspects of DC’s past as the remaining heroes try and assemble the Paragons the Monitor says are so vital. They’ve taken some losses, and are making some questionable choices in the wake of the tragedies.
While in many ways it is the era of hero tv (and movies), 2019 carved a bloody swath through the shows that were around. This is my look back at the series that didn’t make it to 2020.
In the first episode, we met the players and got a general idea of who’s who. In the second, we got something of an idea of what Harley wanted and a few of the obstacles in her way. Now, she’s starting to work on actually getting what she wants, and, of course, that doesn’t go smoothly.
Sometimes ignorance is most definitely NOT bliss, and what you don’t know CAN hurt you. The Crisis on Infinite Earths has been sweeping through the multiverse. Black Lightning and company, to this point, have been unaware of all of that until now. Things get strange, then ugly, then deadly during Black Lightning’s “Earth Crisis.”
With the big surprise at the end of last episode, there are a lot of questions. So even though there’s only one more episode to go, they take most of this one to explain some backstory among several of the major characters.
The Crisis on Infinite Earths continues on Batwoman. The first part had several cameos and a lot of surprises, as the extent of the high stakes was driven home by so many deaths. The special after-show, ala Talking Dead for Walking Dead, confirmed that all those worlds we saw in quick glimpses were destroyed, so the body count is already immensely high.
