Batwoman has been one of the better CW shows for a while. First season was great, second was so much better than anticipated, and third has been pretty good. Which is why this particular episode is so disappointing.
The good news from last episode is that the time machine works. The bad news is it still has some bugs, and they don’t end up quite when or where they were aiming for.
The newest DC Comics based CW show is still in the midst of the origin story for the titular character, Naomi. We’ve learned a bit about some oddities in her life, and she’s digging into the mystery as she learns more.
There are attempts to reach out, some good decisions, and a at least one “I can’t believe he fell for that” moment in “The Ties that Bind.”
Flash’s eighth season starts off with “Armageddon,” a five part event with each episode guest starring a hero from elsewhere in this world of heroes. Part one sets up the new status quo, introduces a new villain and some updated older ones, and puts things into motion.

The second season of Batowoman has been dealing with two main storylines: the recapture of Batman’s stolen trophies, which are disturbingly creating a new wave of supervillains, and Ryan clashing with her birthmother, Jada Jet.
The Legends have found themselves marooned in 1925, and the first part of season seven has been dedicated to getting to New York City. They’ve learned of a scientist named Gwyn Davies who is the father of time travel, and they hope to use his genius to get themselves back to their own time.
After six seasons, lots of monsters, game nights and Balcony Conversations™, Supergirl’s run comes to end. The show is reported to have ended over falling ratings, major delays and complications from the Coronavirus (I guess even Supergirl isn’t immune, get your shots!).
