The Flash
Season 3 Episode 22: “Infantino Street”
Directed by Michael Allowitz
Written by Andrew Kreisberg and teleplay by Grainne Godfree
Starring Grant Gustin, Jesse L. Martin, Danielle Panabaker, Candice Patton, Carlos Valdes, Tom Cavanagh, Keiynan Lonsdale, Tom Felton
Created by Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg, Geoff Johns

Air Date: Tuesday, May 16th, 2017, 8:00pm

Last week on The Flash, Cisco (Carlos Valdes) came up with a flawed (but from the heart) plan to prevent Barry (Grant Gustin) from making new memories, so that Savitar-the-Barry-remnant wouldn’t know what it was. It was too successful. Barry and Savitar got complete amnesia. Both myself and Iris (Candice Patton) were happy to see this lighthearted Barry without all the darkness and pain, falling in love with her all over again. Unfortunately, Barry was also crucial to a court case, resulting in a firebug walking. Said firebug attacked, but Wally (Keiynan Lonsdale) had no powers because Savitar never awakened them, and Barry couldn’t control his. Killer Frost (Danielle Panabaker) showed up to help Cisco and Julian (Tom Felton) fix the mess. They got to the Caitlin underneath. HR and Tracy (Tom Cavanagh, Anne Dudek) started falling in love. She finished the “speed force bazooka” but it needs a lot of energy… energy that is guarded by King Shark.

Last week on Arrow, Lance (Paul Blackthorne) really came through for Rene (Rick Gonzalez), by arranging a visit with his daughter, and inspiring him to fight for her. Alena (Kacey Rohl) told Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) that A.R.G.U.S. is holding their leader, Cayden James, without due process. He invented a biomarker tracker that they could use to get Chase (Josh Segarra), but wanted Felicity’s help at breaking him out. This put Felicity at odds with the team, and Diggle (David Ramsey) at odds with Lyla (Audrey Marie Anderson). Felicity was successful and she tracked Chase to their bunker. Cue explosion.

Legends of Tomorrow 217-03

Legends Of Tomorrow
Season 2 Episode 17: “Aruba”
Directed by Rob Seidenglanz
Written by Phil Klemmer & Marc Guggenheim
Starring Arthur Darvill, Victor Garber, Brandon Routh, Caity Lotz, Franz Drameh, Dominic Purcell, Nick Zano, Maisie Richardson-Sellers, Wentworth Miller, Neal McDonough, John Barrowman, Matt Lescher
Created by Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg, Marc Guggenheim, Phil Klemmer, Sarah Schechter
The CW
Air Date: Tuesday, April 4th, 2017, 9:00pm

Last week’s DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, was one of the best episodes to date. The Legion of Doom (and Mick Rory – Dominic Purcell), finally got their hands on the Spear of Destiny, and fashioned a new reality to their liking. Eobard Thawne (Matt Lescher) became the head of S.T.A.R. Labs, as well as the smartest and richest man in the world. He also had Stein and Jax (Victor Garber, Franz Drameh) as his work slaves, and Ray (Brandon Routh) as the janitor. Malcolm Merlyn (John Barrowman) reunited with his entire (alive) happy family. Damian Darhk (Neal McDonough) was the mayor of Star City, and had his goons, Amaya and Sara (Maisie Richardson-Sellers, Caity Lotz) take out all the superheroes, including vigilante Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards), and has an impressive mask trophy case. Snart (Wentworth Miller) and Rory robbed banks with no challenge. Everyone except Thawne was dissatisfied. When geeky Nate (Nick Zano) went to Thawne for help because he somehow knew that time was messed up, he ordered the boys to kill him. Mick couldn’t go through with it, and they hooked up with Ray, who invented a gun to restore their former memories. They fixed most of them (except Stein), and after a bunch of fights, Thawne prevailed and destroyed the spear, locking them in that reality forever.

DC’s Arm-Fall-Off-Boy To Join The Arrowverse
Dr. Zaius   |  

April Fools Day Arm-Fall-Off-Boy

“My power will astound you! Observe as I detach my limb, and transform it into a deadly weapon!”

— Arm-Fall-Off-Boy

That name has to be a joke right. Right? But no, it’s far too real. Arm-Fall-Off-Boy was created by Gerard Jones and Curt Swan and had his first appearance in DC Comics in Secret Origins Volume 2, #46 in November 1989. The futuristic hero has the unique ability to detach his limbs and beat his enemies down with them. Since Marvel is raking in the dough with obscure heroes from their catalog like the Guardians of the Galaxy, and Netflix’s Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist, DC figures if you can’t beat them, join them, and is literally scraping the barrel for forgotten characters.
