The Flash - The Once and Future Flash TV review

There are two issues at play in “The Once and Future Flash,” although the show’s writers have not intention of resolving either one. The first involves Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) transformation into Killer Frost, which Barry (Grant Gustin) abandons his friends to deal with on their own as he races into the future to find answers about Savitar. Returning to the present nearly the same moment he left, Team Flash isn’t left on their own for long, but it does prove long enough for Caitlin to escape and further crystallize the timeline the Flash has desperately attempting to prevent.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. - All the Madame's Men TV review

Life in the framework gets a bit easier for Daisy (Chloe Bennet) now that May (Ming-Na Wen) has turned her back on Hydra and used a Terrigen crystal to restore Quake’s powers. Despite Melinda not remembering the real world, her actions help bring the team closer together, although one member has fallen and another is still leading the enemy against them. It’s good to see Daisy and May on the same side again kicking some ass together, and Daisy has her own star moment quaking Aida (Mallory Jansen) through a sky-rise window, but the real stand-out here is Coulson (Clark Gregg) who steps up in a big way to fill the void left with the Patriot‘s death.

Supergirl - Ace Reporter television review

iZombie‘s Rahul Kohli guest-stars as Lena Luther‘s (Katie McGrath) ex who shows up in National City to unveil a new technological marvel (which when not dazzling the press is murdering those who know too much about the project). Despite recent setbacks, Kara (Melissa Benoist) is all sunshine and rainbows (when not grief baking) as she steps up after learning Lena’s ex may be hiding some dangerous information about his new nanite technology. Putting both hers super-skills and reporter instincts to work, our heroine quickly uncovers the truth. By the end of the episode her friend may be battered and bruised, but the city will be safe, and Kara will have earned her spot at Catco in the aptly titled “Ace Reporter.”

Elementary - The Art Of Sleights And Deception TV review

Obsession can be deadly, and there’s plenty of obsession in “The Art of Sleights and Deception.” The death of a magician performing his trademark illusion sends Homes (Jonny Lee Miller) and Watson (Lucy Liu) down the rabbit hole which includes tricks of the trade, a sixty-year old mystery, and Nazi memorabilia. Despite plenty of dead ends, the pair eventually discover the true motive for the murder. The mystery proves to have quite a few twists and turns before the killer is raveled, plus there’s the added fun of seeing Watson’s reaction to Holmes’ unannounced performance of the magician’s trick in the middle of the brownstone.

Once Upon a Time - Where Bluebirds Fly TV review

Zelena (Rebecca Mader) is the star of “Where Bluebirds Fly” as the episode’s flashbacks give us a look back to her time in Oz and her friendship with a young boy who would grow up to be the Tin Man (Alex Désert) along with her first encounter with the Cowardly Lion. In Storybrooke, the Black Fairy (Jaime Murray) goads the Wicked Witch into rushing into a foolish mistake. The Zelena’s attempt to destroy the fairy unintentionally provide the Black Fairy with enough dark magic to make all her plans come true.
