Legion - Chapter 11 television review

Waking up from another encounter with the Shadow King (Navid Negahban), David (Dan Stevens) discovers nearly everyone in Division 3 has been infected by the teeth-chattering disease. A dip into Ptonomy‘s (Jeremie Harris) mind reveals each person is trapped within a maze of their own making. For Ptonomy that reality is a garden without future or past. For Melanie (Jean Smart) it’s a text-based game. For Syd (Rachel Keller) that means being trapped in a loop of her own life (apparently, more on that next week). Oh, there’s also a cow randomly appearing around Division 3 for some reason.

The Flash - Lose Yourself television review

Playing close to form, “Lose Yourself” features a heartbreaking defeat for Team Flash. Not only does the super-villain out-think the team and take down the last remaining bus meta, but DeVoe also cuts even closer to home when he takes Ralph (Hartley Sawyer) as well. Barry‘s (Grant Gustin) failure is complete. Every single one of the bus metahumans created by his return from the Speed Force has been killed off by the super-villain who now controls all of their abilities. And it doesn’t appear that he’s done just yet.

Lucifer - The Angel of San Bernardino television review

Maze‘s (Lesley-Ann Brandt) dark turn continues this week as she helps Pierce (Tom Welling) gaslight Lucifer (Tom Ellis) by turning the devil’s attention away from the immortal moving in on his girl while distracting him with the idea that his father may be controlling him in his sleep. Refusing to go back to sleep, Lucifer’s behavior only becomes more erratic while Chloe (Lauren German) comes awfully close to giving Pierce exactly what he wants. The cruelty by Maze is chilling while an out-of-control, and therefore unbelievable, Lucifer attempts to unsuccessfully spill the beans to the detective about who exactly she is sharing her bed with.

Supergirl - Schott Through the Heart television review

After more than two months hiatus, Supergirl returns with karaoke, flying monkeys, and a death in the family. The night of drunken karaoke is cut short with news that Winn‘s (Jeremy Jordan) father the Toyman has died in prison. Despite his death, the Toyman continues to torture his son and the city from beyond the grave in the form of an apprentice who arrives on the scene to fulfill the super-villain’s final wishes (which includes an aerial attack from robotic flying monkeys). The funeral offers the show an opportunity to introduce Laurie Metcalf as the mother who ran from her crazy husband and abandoned Winn as a child 20 years ago.

Voltron - Blood Duel / Postmortem TV review

“Blood Duel” and “Postmortem” mark a shift in the series with the death of Zarkon (Neil Kaplan) at the hands of Lotor (A.J. LoCascio) with the help of the Paladins of Voltron. The first episode shows some cracks in the team over discussions of trusting Lotor versus turning him over to Zarkon in exchange for the captive Samuel Holt (Nolan North) before the team uses some deception of their own and rallies together to rescue Pidge‘s (Bex Taylor-Klaus) father leaving Lotor one-on-one with his father. Although you don’t expect the major villain to be wiped out mid-season, h choice does open new possibilities for the series.
