Black Lightning continues the second season of teen runaways and ridiculously long titles with “The Book of Rebellion: Chapter Three: Angelitos Negros.”
Taking a familiar concept out for a new spin, much of this episode is narrated by the new Green Arrow.
Supergirl is usually about her protecting the world. This time around, a lot of people are trying really hard to protect her.
Back from the annual crossover and holiday break, The Flash returns with the obviously derivative title, “The Flash and The Furious.”
Supergirl wraps up the annual crossover with “Elseworlds, Part 3.” Picking up pretty much where the last part left off, Barry and Oliver, now being seen as the outlaw Trigger Twins, face off against a black-suited Superman, who proves to be Dr. Deegan, the man causing all the problems for our heroes. The introductory voice over is even done by Deegan, although the phrasing sounds like it’s borrowed from Arrow’s usual lead in.
Essentially, most of the cast handle things badly in “The Book of Rebellion: Chapter Two: The Gift of the Magi.” The title doesn’t even really work, as it references a very specific short story and none of the circumstances of the show really fit it.
The mid-season finale wave keeps rolling, this time hitting the Legends of Tomorrow, or, in this case, the “Legends of To-Meow-Meow.”
