Poor Kara! Driven to rage by all the stresses of her life. I can’t blame her. You use your powers to help people and what do you get? Static! Grief! Blame! Sheesh!
Red Tornado is a good addition from the DC pantheon, but someone will have to put him together again.
The military is a necessary evil, but could Sam Lane be more stereotypical?
Wow, it’s easier to understand why Cat is such a jerk sometimes with a mother like that. Nice of her to defend Kara. Also savvy of her to take Kara aside after her outburst and teach her a few truths. Cliché about women being blamed for anger? Only because it’s true, my friends! The ol’ double standard is alive and well as Perry White could throw a chair through his window and be considered a tough editor while the gossipy tongues would never stop wagging about Cat if she did the same thing.
A mystery surrounding Jeremiah Danvers’ death? Bring it!
The Flash 2x8 & Arrow 4x8
I always enjoy the show’s crossovers with Arrow. It was cool to see Kendra and Carter and see their star-crossed story play out. Vandal Savage is a great character and a worthy adversary. Malcolm will probably bring him back. He considers him a key to immortality, something denied him now that Nyssa sabotaged the Lazarus Pit.
Not that interested in the Ollie-discovers-he’s-a-father storyline, but at least it’s sort-of comics canon. I don’t recall a William unless I’m stumbling on my comics Green Arrow knowledge.
Cisco got the short end of the stick on this one, but how do you compete against a 4,000-year-old romance?
Caitlin is getting involved with Harrison Wells!
Damn, this show keeps teasing me with an Ollie/Felicity break-up!
I like the Toyman debuting in the next episode. Naturally, it’s a Christmas theme.
Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. 3x9
Well, that was an interesting dinner between Phil and Rosalind. Candles and fast food burgers and fries? Two kindred spirits! A pity that Grant Ward had to ruin everything. I wish they hadn’t killed Rosalind off.
Phil going a little crazy is fine. He’s too contained most of the time. He needs to show this side of himself. Smart to leave Mac in charge of S.H.I.E.L.D. And I liked May knowing that Phil needed some space.
I did like Bobbi worried about Lance going up against Ward. And despite Simmons’ screams, I was relieved to see that she wasn’t too badly hurt, though we might not be seeing the extent of her torture, and there are psychological problems, too.
So Skye thinks that Ward is not the typical sociopath who can't feel, but feels too much. Perhaps she's right. He allowed his conversation with his brother to knock him off his game and allow S.H.I.E.L.D. to trace his call.
Should be very interesting next week on the strange planet. I still wonder if Will is the ‘Thing’.
