Warning! Spoilers below for the season 5 finale of Arrow!

Last week on Arrow, the team disappeared one by one, courtesy of madman Adrian Chase and Black Siren (Josh Segarra, Katie Cassidy). Oliver (Stephen Amell) surmised that Talia al Ghul (Lexa Doig) was in on it too, after they found one of her arrows. They were taken to Lian Yu. Merlyn (John Barrowman) joined Oliver to save Thea (Willa Holland). Loyal Nyssa (Katrina Law) joined despite hating Merlyn. Oliver freed Chase after he showed him that he kidnapped his son, William (Jack Moore). Once Oliver figured out where Chase must have taken everyone, he went to the prison on Lian Yu, and asked Slade Wilson (Manu Bennett) for his help.

Last season on The Flash, Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) had another, more deadly speedster nemesis than Reverse Flash – Zoom (Teddy Sears). Zoom came from Earth-2 and began sending metas from his world to kill Barry. He wanted his speed (doesn’t everyone?), and to be the ultimate power. They were joined by Dr. Wells (Tom Cavanagh) from the other Earth because Zoom had kidnapped his daughter. What commenced was a crazy exciting season filled with doppelgängers, vibes, the speed force, and crossovers galore. Barry finally got the girl and a new brother, but lost his dad (John Wesley Shipp) for real. So Barry went back to that fateful night and stopped Reverse Flash from killing his mother.

Last week on The Flash, Barry (Grant Gustin) was lost in the speed force after they tried to recreate the particle accelerator explosion, tasked with catching up with a dark shadow or leave without his powers. The speed force seems to be God, or midichlorians, or the origin of matter, or something omniscient. He was visited by the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and… actually, the speed force just dressed up like his family to give him Joe-isms, while his real family tried to get him back through the vibes of Cisco (Carlos Valdes). The final tears came when his loving mom came and read him a childhood story, “The Runaway Dinosaur.” Barry caught the shadow – himself, as Iris (Candice Patton) reached for him through Cisco, and brought him home with his speed.

Warning! Do not proceed if you haven’t seen the fall finale!

The fall finale of Arrow last month ended in bullets and blood. It started out as a simple retaliation episode – Darhk (Neal McDonough) attacks a community event with children involved. Oliver (Stephen Amell) outs him to the media and thus the world. Darhk kidnaps Thea, Felicity, and Diggle (Willa Holland, Emily Bett Rickards, and David Ramsey) with the intent to gas them to death. Oliver, Laurel (Katie Cassidy), and Merlyn (John Barrowman) save them and Merlyn seems to blow Darhk up. Things almost seem happy. Lance and Felicity’s mom (Paul Blackthorne and Charlotte Ross) are an item, and Oliver proposes. Then… their limo is attacked, Felicity is shot, and Darhk is alive. What?!?!?!?

Caught up?

Last week on Supergirl, Kara (Melissa Benoist) took on more than she could chew, babysitting for Cat’s (Calista Flockhart) son, while also saving the day as Supergirl. The boy is really shy. has a crush on Supergirl, and gets caught up in the train bomb scare. Lucy Lane (Jenna Dewan-Tatum) asks Kara for James (Mechad Brooks) advice. The big bad of the episode were 2 bombs – one at Maxwell Lord’s (Peter Facinelli) train launch, and the other at an airport. Kara chooses the train because of Cat’s son, and sends the DEO to the airport. James also runs to the airport because that’s where Lucy went. Maxwell Lord seems to be behind some of the nefariousness.

Last week on The Flash, we got one of the things we’ve been waiting for all season – Barry’s (Grant Gustin) dad freed from jail. Dr. Wells (Tom Cavanagh) made one of those in-case-I-die videos, confessing to Nora Allen’s murder. The coming home party moved me to tears. Too bad his dad took off soon after. I personally, had been waiting a few months for Adam Copeland aka Edge from WWE to be in an episode. He was Atom-Smasher, with crazy strength and cartoon-y growth. Since the singularity, Barry has cut himself off, blaming himself for Eddie and Robbie’s (oh Robbie!) deaths. When it comes down to it, they are all better as a team, and prove it by saving the day once again. Cisco (Carlos Valdes) discovers a new weird power. Jay Garrick (Teddy Sears), popped in at the end of the episode, proclaiming Barry’s world was in danger and that he too, is The Flash – in another world.
