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.
The mid-season finale wave keeps rolling, this time hitting the Legends of Tomorrow, or, in this case, the “Legends of To-Meow-Meow.”
Supergirl gets to her last episode before another long break in “Both Sides Now.” It starts with a major show of force as the Girl of Steel, the DEO, and Mon-El go to the suburbs to find Purity, the next of the world-killers.
“Past Life” is the last episode before the Agents of SHIELD take a roughly month-long break. With everything they’ve been through, they need it
THAT mission went well…
The mid-season finale for The Gifted starts off with things looking bad, and ends with them being even worse. At the end of last episode, a good chunk of the team was captured by Sentinel Services. Now, the ones that are left have to figure out how to get their friends back and not get caught up in all-out war with the government.
Gotham hits the mid-season finale with “Queen Takes Knight.”
Given that at the end of the big crossover, Felicity and Oliver got married, the title “Irreconcilable Differences” was a bit troubling. I admit, I was wondering if this was going to be the shortest hero marriage ever. Instead, well… you’ll see.
With the crossover finished, the Legends of Tomorrow get back to their usual business of trying to fix time. Personally, I’d like to see a side note at some point of them fixing some of the stuff Barry messed up with his time travel, but that’s me. Anyway, their other recurring issue this season is…
Flash hits the mid-season finale. Considering one of the most often repeated lines on the show is, “Run, Barry, Run!” and the nature of his powers, I guess they went for irony with the title, “Don’t Run.”
On the heels of the big crossover, Supergirl comes back to her own series in “Reign,” the mid-season finale. By comparison, fighting her evil twin, being hunted by Nazis, and kidnapped to another Earth was probably a better time than this was for her.
