Last episode featured the return of Winn Schott (twice), more scheming by Lex and Lena, and a set up for this second part of the story. Everyone is still settling in to the new world and their place in it, and there are various hiccups to deal with.
Supergirl and her merry band are trying to adapt to all the changes in the world since Crisis reset reality. Despite history being rewritten and various resurrections, the biggest complication might well be the return of Lex Luthor…
I’m finding the Harley Quinn show uneven. They do some great ideas and clever twists, and then do some kind of weak and obvious material. This episode, oddly mixed both extremes.
The characters, and viewers, learn more about the new, post-Crisis world as more ripples and changes become apparent. Supergirl and her friends (and some enemies) are trying to navigate their new reality, and the differences range from confusing to sickening.
After a cruelly long month break, Arrow comes back with part four of the crossover. It’s also episode eight of the ten in the final season as the Emerald Archer says goodbye.
The Death of Superman was a major event in the comics in 1993. It hit at just the right time in a slow news cycle so that it got a truly impressive amount of coverage in the mainstream media, reaching nightly news shows and even Entertainment Tonight.
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.
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.
The writers on Supergirl made a really bold choice for the finale. Actually, they make several, but the one I’m talking about at the moment is the title.
For a while now, there’s been a duplicate of Supergirl running around in the background, getting a few scenes here and there. She’s been in Kasnia, a made up, Russia-like country that has made trouble for various DC Comics and Arrow-verse characters. In “House of L,” we get to see her story.
