Saving the man’s life from a hit squad, the task force runs into an old friend in Nez Rowan (Tawny Cypress) who someone high in the United States Government is protecting.

Arrow - Canary Cry

As the members of the team struggle to deal with the death of Laurel (Katie Cassidy) an impulsive young woman (Madison McLaughlin) assumes the identity of Black Canary and begins targeting those she blames for the death of her parents. Whether or not she stays dead, or is eventually resurrected like so many of the characters in the series so far, “Canary Cry” certainly attempts to sell the idea that Laurel isn’t coming back (even going so far as to publicly out her as the real Black Canary at her funeral). Cassidy does appear in the episode as we get flashbacks of Oliver (Stephen Amell) and Laurel following Tommy’s death rather than scenes from the island this week.

Even without his powers, Barry can’t sit back and do nothing. Gathering the team and Jesse together for a little old fashioned police work, and a bit of luck, the Flash races into action (albeit at a much more normal pace).

Castle - Dead Again

With the threat of LOCKSAT once again looming in the background, Castle goes for goofy in the attempted murder of a safety inspector (Jonathan Silverman) who survives poisoning, electrocution, and being shot in the head. With Castle (Nathan Fillion) consumed by the man’s incredible survival, something the writer attributes to super-powers, Beckett (Stana Katic), Ryan (Seamus Dever), and Esposito (Jon Huertas) are more concerned with finding the would-be killer.

Lucifer - Take Me Back to Hell

Can the Devil be redeemed? “Take Me Back to Hell” begins with Lucifer (Tom Ellis) framed for murder and finally willing to allow Amenadiel (DB Woodside) to return him to Hell. However, given the mess the pair have made with both Maze (Lesley-Ann Brandt) and Malcolm (Kevin Rankin), Lucifer’s brother convinces him to stay around long enough to put things right. Although that choice nearly gets both of them killed, it also sets up the show’s upcoming Second Season.
