Flash: Heart of the Matter, Part 2

Season seven of The Flash reaches its end amid the chaos of the Godspeed war. We get a resolution to that, several allies working together, an old enemy coming back, and a nice little family scene at the end. To my surprise, there was no big cliffhanger, which the CW usually does on their season finales.

Legends of Tomorrow: Bishop’s Gambit

Things are getting even stranger than usual for the Legends, and that really says something. So far this season, we’ve dealt with Captain Sara Lance being abducted by aliens, the secret origin of Big Belly Burger, an evil painting, and an animated sequence that was like a demented Disney scene, among other things.

Loki: The Nexus Event

Past the halfway point now, Loki continues to deliver surprises and twists. What would you expect from something where the main character is the god of mischief, or lies, depending on which version you’re going by? I like to think I’m pretty good at working out where stories might go, and I saw none of what happened this episode coming.

Loki: Lamentis

When your main character is a god of mischief and you’ve already introduced time travel and unlimited teleportation, you never know what’s coming next. Add in other chaos factors like a different version of your main character and some kind of allegedly all powerful group behind the scenes, and the sky’s the limit. Or even that isn’t really a limit.

Legends of Tomorrow: Bay of Squids

The endearing oddness that is the Legends of Tomorrow can take damn near anything and make it into absurdist comedy. You wouldn’t think there’s a lot of laughs to be had in looking at the Cuban Missile Crisis, considering how close the world came to nuclear annihilation.

Legends of Tomorrow: The Ex-Factor

Settling in to their newest quest, the Legends of Tomorrow are trying to find time-lost aliens, keep them from causing trouble, and find leads for their missing leader, Sara Lance. They also have to deal with evolving relationships on the team, Mick’s amazingly bad attitude, even for him, and settling their newest recruit, Spooner, as part of the team.
