Lucifer - Quid Pro Ho

I loved this episode. The trial of the man who murdered Chloe‘s (Lauren German) father begins, and when the star witness turns up dead Lucifer (Tom Ellis) takes the stand. Although hugely entertaining, his testimony does open a hole in the prosecution’s case. Things are complicated by 1) The fallout from Lucifer standing up Chloe on their date, 2) Lucifer’s Mum (Tricia Helfer) defending the man who killed Chloe’s father, and 3) Detective Douche (Kevin Alejandro) sleeping with Lucifer’s mother and unintentionally providing ammunition for the defense. In the end Chloe must choose to sacrifice Lucifer to get justice or stand-up for her partner and allow the man responsible for her father’s death to go free.

Supergirl - Medusa

The first night of The CW’s big four-part crossover event is really a crossover in name only. Only appearing in the epilogue, Barry (Grant Gustin) and Cisco (Carlos Valdes) show up to recruit Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) for the wider adventure after Kara deals with the current threat of Cadmus and an Kryptonian biological weapon the terrorist group plans to use to wipe out all non-human life on Earth.

Elementary - How the Sausage Is Made

While investigating a murder involving a one victim killed after eating sausages made from a second murder victim, the trail leads Holmes (Jonny Lee Miller) and Watson (Lucy Liu) to a cutting edge laboratory where the ground-up victim was working on perfecting a meat substitute. At first Sherlock believes that such a discovery, and its effect on the marketplace, may have gotten the man killed by a meat conglomerate (or “Big Meat” as Holmes takes to saying), however a second, more devious, motive is eventually uncovered.

Once Upon a Time - Changelings

Refusing to lose another child, Rumpelstiltskin (Robert Carlyle) threatens to speed-up Belle‘s (Emilie de Ravin) pregnancy while ordering the Evil Queen (Lana Parrilla) to kill Zelena (Rebecca Mader). Neither plan works out in his favor as Regina steps in to save her sister, and the Evil Queen’s decision to force a reluctant Gold’s hands means the Dark One watches as his newborn son is lost to him… at least for now. Babies play a major role in the flashbacks to the Enchanted Forrest as well, as time in Rumpelstiltskin’s castle reveals a bit more about the Dark One’s past including introducing his mother (Jaime Murray) which helps explain the character’s hatred of fairies. If the larger plan is to turn Rumpelstiltskin into a full villain once again, the groundwork is laid here by isolating him completely from family and friends and giving him a quest (finding his son) he will stop at nothing to achieve.

The Librarians and the Fangs of Death

I’m going to rename this one “The Librarians and the Werewolves of the Super Collider.” Spurred on by an apocalyptic vision, Flynn (Noah Wyle) journeys with Eve (Rebecca Romijn) to bring Charlene (Jane Curtain) home. Finding, but almost immediately loosing, her, Flynn and the other Librarians go in search of Charlene again which leads them to an underground super collider in Canada full of werewolves (Don’t you hate it when that happens?) transformed by Anubis brought forth by Apep as part of his plan to destroy The Library and release Pure Evil into the world.
