Legends of Tomorrow - Legendary

Following his inability to save the lives of his wife and son, the crippling of the Time Masters’ ability to view and control history, and Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller) sacrificing his life for the team’s freedom, Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill) decides to abandon his compatriots back in 2016. Finding it hard to readjust to their old lives, and unable to leave their job unfinished, the group brings Hunter back to 2016 (in a manner that isn’t all that well explained) to convince the Time Master to let them help rescue Kendra (Ciara Renée) from 1944 France.

The Blacklist - Alexander Kirk

The Blacklist concludes its Third Season with a two-part episode of Reddington (James Spader), the FBI, and Susan Hargrave (Famke Janssen) all working together in hunting down the person responsible for the death of Elizabeth Keen (Megan Boone): Alexander Kirk (Ulrich Thomsen). By the end of the episode a couple of big secrets will be revealed, one shocking only Red, and the other explaining Kirk’s interest in both Lizzie and her daughter. While the first episode is more about setting up the show’s new spinoff and teasing big secrets in Tom‘s (Ryan Eggold) past, the conclusion focuses more on Red’s attempt to drive Kirk into the light by framing him as a terrorist in order to put a bullet in the man’s skull.

Arrow - Lost in the Flood

In an episode that actually shows us very little of the super-powered Damien Darhk (Neal McDonough), Oliver (Stephen Amell) and Diggle (David Ramsey) discover the madman’s underground suburb and search for a kidnapped Thea (Willa Holland) while Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards), the Calculator (Tom Amandes), and Curtis (Echo Kellum) work to try and stop Darhk from starting nuclear armageddon.

Person of Interest - ShotSeeker

Whereas the previous episode was dominated by the long-awaited return of Shaw (Sarah Shahi), what “ShotSeeker” lacks strong central narrative it makes up for by juggling several disparate, but all very intriguing, elements. Finch (Michael Emerson) begins some disheartening experiments pitting scaled-down versions of The Machine and Samaritan against each other. Bruce Moran (James Le Gros) returns looking for answers about Elias‘ (Enrico Colantoni) death. A curious Fusco (Kevin Chapman) continues to poke around issues that threaten to make him an enemy of Samaritan. An analyst with keen ear gets on the wrong side of Samaritan when he brings Reese‘s (Jim Caviezel) attention to a murder the A.I. has done its best to hide. And, for the second episode in a row, a fan-favorite character returns from the dead.

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. - Absolution / Ascension

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.‘s two-part Third Season finale drags out the end of the Hive (Brett Dalton) storyline as Daisy (Chloe Bennet) spends most of that time guilt-ridden in quarantine while her friends work around the clock to prevent Hive from detonating his Inhuman warhead in the upper atmosphere. Hive’s attack on S.H.I.E.L.D. headquarters forces Daisy into action, first in pleading with the Inhuman creature to take her back and, after realizing that’s not possible, doing everything she can to kill it (more because she feels like a spurned lover than any heroic impulse).
