With Chloe (Lauren German) slowly dying in a hospital bed, Lucifer (Tom Ellis) organizes the troops for a desperate plan. Choosing to kill himself, temporarily, Lucifer returns to Hell in search of the college professor (Tim DeKay) who alone knows the formula to the designer poison antidote. With many of Lucifer’s plans, things don’t got quite a smoothly as he hoped. The show certainly pulls out all the stops to deliver a strong mid-season finale.
Although the latest episode of Supergirl involves the return of Livewire (Brit Morgan), including Kara (Melissa Benoist) freaking out about her arch-nemesis’ return (did I miss something, when did Livewire graduate from recurring villain to nemesis?), the central theme of the story deals more about the show’s heroes than its villains. This includes Supergirl’s disapproval of discovering the truth about Guardian, the mixed success of Mon-El‘s (Chris Wood) first field experience, and J’onn (David Harewood) choosing to forgive and help M’gann (Sharon Leal) through traumatic episode.
It’s rare to see Sherlock Holmes (Jonny Lee Miller) beaten, even if only for an instant. Opening with a montage of a frustrated father’s (Isiah Whitlock Jr.) previous attempts to illicit the assistance of Holmes and Watson (Lucy Liu) into an attack that led to his son’s eventual death, the episode begins in earnest with the man taking a diner full of hostages and giving the detective 16 hours to solve the case. Or else. With Joan as one of the hostages, it falls on Detective Bell (Jon Michael Hill) to work alongside Holmes and help him piece together events from five years ago before time runs out.
