The culprit, was a man who lost his entire family to gun violence and was angry that the city did not pass a gun measure. Oliver (Stephen Amell) was able to talk the guy down from doing more harm, and then get a bipartisan measure passed in one episode. Oliver Queen for mayor of NYC!

Two weeks ago on DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, the legends needed to save George Washington and the outcome of the Revolutionary War, because evil Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill) and the Legion of Doom – Damian Darhk, Malcolm Merlyn, and Eobard Thawne (Neal McDonough, John Barrowman, Matt Letscher) caused an aberration to grab the piece of the Spear of Destiny. Washington was scheduled to hang as a traitor, but Mick, Nate, and Amaya (Dominic Purcell, Nick Zano, Maisie Richardson-Sellers) saved the day. Sarah (Caity Lotz) almost died when she was shot and Rip choked her, and the ship was offline. Stein (Victor Garber) tried to save her, as Jax (Franz Drameh) tried to defend the ship and the piece of Spear. Sarah was saved, but the spear was taken. Nate and Amaya became more than just friends.

Two weeks ago on The Flash, the meta of the day was one that Alchemy aka Julian (Tom Felton) had awakened. His touch had the ability to cause matter to disintegrate, and people to decompose to ash. That meta, Clive Yorkin (Matthew Kevin Anderson), went after cops that collared him in Flashpoint. He touched Iris (Candice Patton) to hurt Joe West (Jesse L. Martin). Barry (Grant Gustin) figured that out, so Cisco (Carlos Valdes) vibed there to find the next target. Yorkin caused a train full of people to be in danger, so Barry vibed the whole train safely through, leaving Kid Flash (Keiynan Lonsdale) to vibe (for the first time) through Yorkin with a neutralizer.

Last week on Arrow, Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) went back to Russia and back to Bratva, after word came through that General Walker (Garry Chalk) escaped, and is selling a nuke to Russia. He and the gang (sans Wild Dog) went to stop that madness, with Rory (Joe Dinicol) stopping a nuclear blast with his rags. He went away because they were broken after that. Oliver’s new sleeping buddy was a spy, unbeknownst to him. Lance (Paul Blackthorne came back, and Wild Dog (Rick Gonzalez) stayed behind to babysit and inspire him. Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) continued with her “hack-tivist” ways.

Last time on DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Damian Darhk (Neal McDonough) narrated the opening, and we got to see how Malcolm Merlyn (John Barrowman) hooked up with Darhk and Eobard Thawne (Matt Letscher). There was trouble in paradise, with the two seething at Eobard Thawne’s highhandness, while simultaneously at each other’s throats. They were trying to get info out of Rip (Arthur Darvill), but the info just wasn’t there. A safety deposit box in 2025 had a piece of the Spear of Destiny, but they could not get in. Malcolm and Darhk have an assassins sword fight, until the “hippie” made them realize that they should work together. Lily Stein (Christina Brucato) found out she was a time aberration. The team figured out why Thawne was always on the move. The Legion of Doom trapped the monster (kinda looks like a zombie Flash) in a bank vault as partners.

Last week on Arrow, the team went shopping for a new Black Canary, but nobody was quite right according to Oliver (Stephen Amell). They found a promising young meta vigilante with the same power as Laurel. She was after the poeple that killed her partner. After ducking them for a while, Oliver showed her another way, and she was on the team. Adrian (Josh Segarra) was able to free Diggle (David Ramsey) while pissing off a shady general. Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) went back to her “hack-tivist” ways. In the flashback, Talia al Ghul (Lexa Doig) started training Oliver.

Last week on The Flash, HR (Tom Cavanagh) turned S.T.A.R. Labs into a museum, complete with a Cisco (Carlos Valdes) hologram, much to his chagrin. Caitlin asked Julian (Danielle Panabaker, Tom Felton) to join the team. Barry (Grant Gustin) and Cisco vibed back to the future (4 months from now), to figure out what the news was that day, so they could try and change it. Part of that plan was to have Kid Flash (Keiynan Lonsdale) capture villain of the day, Plunder, who appeared in that future news flash.

Last week on Arrow, Oliver (Stephen Amell) thought his dreams came true when Laurel (Katie Cassidy) came walking into the lair. We all knew what Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) soon suspected, that she was Black Siren from Earth-2. Working with Prometheus, she pretended she was being forced (although it seemed like it was partly not pretending). Oliver was bent on trying to save her, but a showdown between the team and the villains proved to everyone (still not Oliver), that there was no redemption for this Laurel).

Last time on The Flash, we saw a bit of Julian’s (Tom Felton) history, which basically explained the Alchemy/Savitar situation with something called the Philosopher’s Stone. Earth-3’s Jay Garrick (John Wesley Shipp) was supportive (almost like a dad), with wise words and a suggestion to get rid of the Philosophers Stone (oh yeah-fixed Julian and “fixed” Savitar), of throwing it in the speed force. Barry (Grant Gustin) accidentally ran 5 months into the future and watched Iris (Candice Patton) die at the hands of Savitar. Barry gave Iris an awesome apartment for Christmas.
