Arrowverse “Crisis on Earth-X” Crossover Recap

Okay, last week was another amazing November sweeps crossover extravaganza in the Arrowverse, and this year’s “Crisis on Earth-X” was totally worth the hype! Starting slow on Supergirl, the story initially followed all the pre-wedding preparations. It was an episode that went heavy on the soundtrack, a theme that peaked in Kara singing a beautiful song, that I think(?) was an original tune, at Flash & Iris’s wedding. Until – of course – the alternate dimension Nazi Super Villain Army burst in. For real. It was rad. It was what we signed up for. And this round the good guys won.

The second episode in the series was on Arrow, which revealed some key plot points to us but didn’t end great per se for the good guys. We learned that the army of genetic purists from Earth-X were led by that dimension’s version of Oliver “Green Arrow” Queen & Kara “Supergirl” Danver, who were also in evil-love and unhappily married. Unhappy why? Cause of a super-cancer that was destroying her heart. So they needed Earth-3 Kara’s heart. A veritable War of the Worlds erupted, and by the end of this one, everybody but Iris & Felicity were in an Earth-X concentration camp.

Next up in The Flash, they got rescued from certain death by that Nazi boot stomp dimension’s version of Captain Cold. And as if him being a good guy wasn’t surprising enough, he was also there to rescue his gay lover and fellow fascist fighting superhero, The Ray. But Kara was still held by the evil version of Oliver and would soon go under the knife. Professor Stein took a bullet (that would eventually kill him), saving the day in this chapter, and at the end, tables were slightly turned with only Kara, Iris, & Felicity being captured. But everyone else didn’t have it easy – they were fighting the Red Tornado, who was summarily kicking their collective asses.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 11/28/17

Have you ever been at a loss as to what to watch? Too many shows to pick from? We’re here to give you our opinions on what we feel is worth watching. Check it out and then let us know in the comments below what you’re choosing for tonight!

Tonight is the conclusion of the 5-episode “Sanctuary City” arc on Major Crimes. It’s been an eventful arc so far with surprises happening every episode. Last week, we not only found out Sharon had been diagnosed with cardiomyopathy (and I loved how she turned Rusty’s question about what he can do to help into him agreeing to a protection detail! LOL), but Lucas’s drug-addicted father was found dead in his office. Everyone believes it was an overdose. Was it self-inflicted – and if so, then on purpose or accident? Was it murder? I think the other two doctors or whoever they are in his practice have been hiding something, so…maybe it was them? And we learned from the remaining two boys that Lucas had taken them to a limo and then they’d been sprayed with something that knocked them out and made their throats hurt, and then they woke in Mexico. Chloroform was found on their clothes, so maybe? But they were also found with opioids in their bags in Mexico, so…I’m still as confused as ever.

Tonight wraps up this arc, thank goodness. It’s been a fun and interesting case, but I honestly have no idea what the truth is, and I’m ready to move on!

On tonight’s episode, “Sanctuary City: Part 5,” as the case of the St. Joseph’s Three leads to its unexpected conclusion, Commander Sharon Raydor attempts to balance the case, her family arriving, and her fast approaching wedding to Lt. Andy Flynn.

Find out the truth to all the unanswered questions tonight on TNT at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Lethal Weapon, Chopped, MasterChef Canada, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, & Chicago Med.

The last episode of Brooklyn Nine-Nine was epic – not only was it another fun Halloween episode that included the precinct facing off with one another trying to win the annual Halloween Heist, which brought back Fake Charles, Terry lifting a hugely heavy server, and everyone trying to outdo the others…but Jake actually proposed to Amy! At first she thought it was a play to win the heist, but when she realized he was serious, she said yes! It was SO cute! Like I said… Epic!

On tonight’s episode, “Bad Beat,” to track down the infamous arms dealer Dan “Daniel” Valdano (guest star David Figlioli, Murder in the First), Jake and Terry go undercover at an illegal gambling club, but when Holt gets involved to coach the two in the art of poker, his addiction resurfaces. Meanwhile, Boyle buys a food truck that was formerly used in a brutal string of murders without telling his investor (Amy), and Hitchcock and Scully challenge Rosa to a “Butt-lympics.”

See Amy’s reaction to the murder truck and find out who wins the “Butt-lympics” tonight on FOX at 9:30/8:30c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Lethal Weapon, NCIS, The Little Couple, Major Crimes, MasterChef Canada, The Mayor, Chopped, & NCIS: New Orleans.

legendsoftomorrow1013smallTonight, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow returns for its second season on The CW. As the first season came to a close, the group finally managed to put an end to Vandal Savage’s evil plan to conquer the world by killing him simultaneously in three different time periods – Mick and Ray took him out in 1958; Sara, Jax, and Professor Stein in 1975; and Carter, Hunter, and Kendra in 2021. However, even with Savage gone, there was still an explosive meteor to contend with, and so Hunter used the Waverider to fly the meteor into the sun but miraculously managed to survive himself. As the team reconvened in 2016, Kendra and Carter decided to head off on their own to give their relationship a go. But soon after they left, a second Waverider crashed down in front of the team, and out stepped Rex Tyler (Patrick J. Adams), who warned the group that they will die if they get back on board.

Who is this mystery man, how did he get a Waverider, and how does he know the future? Will the group heed his warning or just head off again on another mission? I’m looking forward to seeing what time-traveling adventures await the group this season, though I hope the writers don’t try to stretch out a single story over the entire season like last year. I would love to see several different arcs and villains over the course of this second season.

On tonight’s premiere, “Out of Time,” Dr. Nate Heywood, an unconventional historian, makes a shocking discovery. Nate then seeks out Oliver Queen for help to find the scattered Legends. Once reunited, they try to protect Albert Einstein from being kidnapped before the Nazis destroy New York City with a nuclear bomb. Meanwhile, Ray notices that Sara has a mission of her own, which leads them both to face her nemesis, Damien Darhk.

Check out the season premiere tonight on The CW at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Grey’s Anatomy, Superstore, The Good Place, The Blacklist, Pitch, 60 Days In, and Falling Water.

legendsoftomorrow519smallTonight, the first season of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow comes to a close. Last week, Rip, Martin Stein, and Ray Palmer were locked up in the prison at the Vanishing Point. Just as the Time Masters were about to have Chronos execute them, Leonard Snart and Sara Lance showed up to save the day. And it turned out that Mick had been able to resist his re-programming. The group then set out to destroy the source of the Time Masters’ time manipulation abilities, the Oculus. When they arrived at the wellspring, they found it well-guarded. And ultimately Snart volunteered to sacrifice himself in order destroy the Oculus. This left Savage without the power of the Time Masters to manipulate time for him, and so it seemed like it was just a matter of time (so-to-speak) until he would no longer be in power. However, Savage revealed that he had his own time machine and that he didn’t need the Time Masters anyway.

Will this team ever find a way to stop Vandal Savage? Where/when will they head next, and what is their next plan of attack? I’m looking forward to seeing how the season ends and what the show’s creators set up for next season. I’m kind of hoping they find a way to resolve this Vandal Savage story line or expand the universe so that we can explore some new villains next season.

On tonight’s finale, “Legendary,” season 1 ends with Rip returning the team to Central City a few months after they first left. They return to their normal lives and must decide individually whether to sacrifice everything in order to save the world. Meanwhile, Sara visits with her father, who delivers some heartbreaking news about her sister.

Find out what decisions everyone makes tonight on The CW at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Grey’s Anatomy, The Blacklist, Bones, The 100, Archer, 60 Days In, & Orphan Black.
