Things reach a whole new level, and there’s a big change in the status quo, in “Truth and Consequences.” Once again, David Ramsey, best known to Arrowverse fans as John Diggle of Arrow, shows he’s a very talented director.
Now they have a lot of decisions to make in their pursuit of this killer, and Iris and Sue have their own issues out in Coast City. There’s a rare amount of dissension and tension on the team as they deal with “Resurrection.”
we get a few new surprising discoveries in “Reckless.” That seems like more of a Legends title than a Flash one, but I get where it’s coming from.
Now, after a break for a few weeks, the show returns with what is essentially the other side of the “30 Days and 30 Nights” episode, where the rest of the cast dealt with Superman being missing. Where has he been? Well, we find out in “Bizarros in a Bizarro World.”
They keep a lot of things in motion in “Phantoms,” and the episode title itself is a clue about one of the reveals. I have a theory about something below that might constitute a minor spoiler, but it’s just an informed guess on my part.
Between COVID, rising costs, and other factors, the Arrowverse seems to be shrinking again. Over the past week, they announced the cancellation of Batwoman after three seasons and Legends of Tomorrow after their seventh.
DC Comics continues their exploration of stories behind their shows in “Earth Prime.” The first issue of this limited series filled in some holes in the most recent season of Batwoman. Issue two turns from Gotham to Smallville as we check in on Superman and Lois.
Powers and relationships dominate this episode, and while there’s some action, it takes a back seat to several other things. We see the return of an old foe, some complications on the various jobs, and the beginning of a new subplot in “The Fire Next Time.”
After a season of family drama, “flashback villains” (I love that term), and strained relationships, things are finally coming to a close for season three of Batwoman. As with several Arrowverse shows, the fate of the series hasn’t been decided yet as far as renewal versus cancellation.
Every once in a while, they let the writers have fun on a particular episode of an ongoing series. I suspect the writers’ room for Flash had a blast with this one. There’s not as much action as usual this time out, but they have a lot of relationship developments and some great dialogue.
