Batwoman has had an interesting, and, in my opinion, well-written first few episodes. I like that they’re spending so much time on the central story of Alice/Beth and all the ripples from that fateful car crash.
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.
So far, much of Flash’s sixth season has revolved around the coming Crisis on Infinite Earths. The Monitor has said the Flash must die to save millions, if not more, and Barry’s own investigations seem to support this. Being a hero, accepting his fate to save others, Barry is willing to face his predicted death.…
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.
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.
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.
The sixth season of Flash, much like season eight of Arrow, is pretty much straight buildup to the Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover coming in December. The heroes have gotten hints about what’s coming, and Barry is trying to figure out what to do now that, as far as he can tell, his fate is sealed.
