Last time on Arrow, because of the psychological and physical torture Adrian Chase (Josh Segarra) subjected him to, Oliver (Stephen Amell) decided to disband the team, and also officially ended things with Susan (Carly Pope). He called in the Bratva to handle Chase, who ran around taunting him. The team was aghast and fought the Bratva because the deal let them take medicine. Oliver came to his senses, but Anatoly (David Nykl) declared war. Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) and the Helix outed Chase, who killed his protective guard and escaped with a smile.

Caitlin coded. Julian pulled off her protective necklace turning her into Killer Frost. Barry told Joe and Iris he was going to the future for answers.

After toying with his love the entire episode, Nygma (Cory Michael Smith) shot Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor) and pushed him into the harbor.

Last season on iZombie, the zombie secret was out… first to Clive (Malcolm Goodwin) and then to the rest of Seattle. Liv (Rose McIver) told Clive to help Major (Robert Buckley), who was in hot water for being the Chaos killer (even though he really didn’t kill anyone). Max Rager had a party that ended in a zombie rampage, complete with massacre, and Rob Thomas (wink wink) of Matchbox 20 bit the dust as well. Liv had to kill Drake to save Clive. Ravi (Rahul Kohli) found out about Blaine and Peyton (David Anders, Aly Michalka). The gang met Vivian Stoll (Andrea Savage), CEO of Fillmore Graves Enterprises, the company that just took over the now defunct Max Rager.

Last week on DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, The Legends headed to World War I where J.R.R.Tolkien (yes, that one) could point them to the Blood of Christ, needed to destroy the Spear of Destiny, which was now whole and whispering to them. They got the blood but lose the spear via Leonard Snart (not in Mick’s head). Mick (Dominic Purcell), sick of being on the outside, joined the Legion of Doom, and changed the fabric of reality. Many Lord of the Rings references splashed throughout this episode, including a speech by Rip (Arthur Darvill) clearly meant to inspire Tolkien.

Last week on Arrow, Oliver (Stephen Amell) was brutally tortured both physically and psychologically at the hand of Adrian Chase aka Prometheus (Josh Segarra). Chase was and is clearly insane, but he was able to break Oliver in ways that the other villains have not. He made Oliver admit that he enjoyed killing. That admission made Oliver put the blame of everything on himself (more than he usually does), and he returned to the lair to tell them it’s over. He quit.

TV Review: The Flash 3.18 “Abra Kadabra”

Season 3 Episode 18: “Abra Kadabra”
Directed by Nina Lopez-Corrado

Starring Grant Gustin, Jesse L. Martin, Danielle Panabaker, Candice Patton, Carlos Valdes, Tom Cavanagh, Keiynan Lonsdale, Tom Felton, Violett Beane

Air Date: Tuesday, March 28th, 2017, 8:00pm

Last week on The Flash, all my dreams came true as Barry and the Barettes did a few musical numbers. Also a Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow, and Arrow-ish crossover (latter 2 and The Flash came from Arrow), a villain called the Music Meister (Darren Criss, Glee) trapped Kara Danvers (Melissa Benoist) in a musical dreamworld, mentioning The Flash (Grant Gustin) as he exited. Mon-El and J’onn (Chris Wood, David Harewood) brought her to S.T.A.R. Labs for help. The Music Meister got pinched, but not before he sent Barry down the rabbit hole as well. The rules were they had to move the story (of forbidden mob love), along with performances of some snappy numbers. Here’s where Gustin, Benoist, Carlos Valdes (Cisco), Jeremy Jordan (Winn), Jesse L. Martin (Joe West), Victor Garber (Stein), and John Barrowman (Malcolm Merlyn) got to show off their chops with some awesome original and cover songs. My favorite, “I’m Your Superfriend,” was written by Rachel Bloom (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend – my new guilty pleasure), and was a complete delight, with Benoist and Gustin using comedy and tap to make me smile. Everything worked out – Barry and Iris (Candice Patton) and Mon-El and Kara reconciled and escaped the dreamworld, because the Music Meister wasn’t a villain at all. He did this for love. This episode also showed off Gustin’s funny side.

Last night on Supergirl, a musical was briefly mentioned as a suggestion for a movie from Mon-El to Kara (Chris Woods, Melissa Benoist). Then… at the end of the episode, an alien was brought in who spoke to Kara, “I’ve been looking for you.” He breaks out of his cuffs and whammies her with his eyes. She passes out and opens her eyes to a dream state where she is all dolled up and pushed onstage to sing.

Two weeks ago on Arrow, the jig was up as Prometheus leaked to the SCPD that the Green Arrow killed Officer Malone. Oliver (Stephen Amell) explained the real reasons, but then it was leaked to the press. Impeachment loomed and Vigilante attacked. Oliver was worried about Thea (Willa Holland) as she was displaying characteristics of their mother. Thea resigned to find herself. Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) fixed the Susan Williams (Carly Pope) situation. Paul asked Curtis (Echo Kellum) for a divorce. Prometheus was revealed (to the audience) as…
