This past season of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow could easily have been re-branded as Sarah Lance and the Spooky Kids, considering the show’s hard shift into matters of mystical origins. After season three (in which we saw Damian Darhk make his third run at being an Arrowverse Big Bad), this show is now nothing but time anomalies of a magical nature. For example, the penultimate episode of season four last week saw John Constantine was on a quest to hell to save Ray. Neron, the evil demon possessing Ray’s body, was using the Ray Palmer identity to promote this new phone app that will track mystical creatures. The Fairy Godmother, Tabitha, was loose too, attached to geeky Time Bureau intern Gary.

Nora Dahrk was on the scene and trying to stop Neron, but she was outmatched. With constant prodding from Tabitha, Gary finally started to get mean to the Legends. He was really just serving as a spoiler that distracted the team as Neron attempted to fake a monster attack to get his app better promotion. As it turned out, the silver lining for him was that the TOS of the app signed over the users’ souls to him. If he could get his app to go viral, he’d ascend to a position of dominance in hell.

Speaking of, Constantine finally got through to the Triumvirate, a trio of demons that oversaw much of hell together. They tortured him with the reminder that an innocent girl named Astrid remained in hell due to his past failures. Failing in all other attempts to stop Neron, Nora agreed to take Tabitha’s curse, thinking her wish-granting powers would allow her to rescue John & Ray from hell. But, no, in assuming the curse, she also assumed the charge: Gary. Constantine failed in his attempt to rescue Astrid. She’d been corrupted by hell and chose to remain there despite Constantine’s bargain to have her released. But perhaps we’re saved, because Gary did dispatch Fairy Godmother Nora Dahrk to hell to save her friends. Last but not least, the dragon egg that was hidden at young Zari’s house began to hatch, foreshadowing perhaps this year’s Beebo will be a baby dragon that whups serious ass!

On tonight’s episode, “Hey, World!” while on a mission to find Ray, Constantine and Nora discover Neron’s evil plan. Nate convinces the Legends to think outside the box and suggests a dangerous plan to unite magical creatures and people to save the world.

Learn Nate’s dangerous plan tonight on The CW at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching American Dad!

The “Arrowverse’s” epic return continues tonight when DC’s Legends of Tomorrow comes back.

This is another show that ended on a crazy cliff hanger last year, which left us some hint of what this year’s season 4 might be about. In last spring’s finale, Damien Darhk sacrificed himself to become the demon Malice instead of his daughter, Nora. (Why are Darhk & Flash’s daughters named the same??!?!) Mya and Ray meanwhile took some shaman drug to commune with the ancestral totem bearers to learn how to use the totems to defeat the demon.

The team was hiding out in temporal anomalous zone: Salvation Montana in the 1860s. They met up with Johna Hex once again & also got to see Jefferson Jackson, who used to be Firestorm. Jefferson had aged five years since they last saw him, and he had a wife & child now. Unfortunately undead armies of Roman soldiers, pirates, & vikings showed up soon enough, representing Malice’s agenda. In the “High Noon” battle with the undead legions, they at first defeated them all, but Malice just reanimated them again. So the Legends had to pool the powers of the totems to become the champion that could defeat the demon. They formed into a giant “Bebo” stuffed doll and promptly kicked Malice’s butt!

In the celebrations that followed, though, mystic warrior John Constantine showed up and told them that by destroying Malice, they had cause massive repercussions through the world of the supernatural. That set the tone for what we have to look forward to in this next year. Also Mya returned to her own timeline, and she and Ray broke up, but we knew that was coming. She only was on the waverider to complete this totem arc. We know that Legends will not be part of the Elseworlds crossover that The Flash, Arrow, & Supergirl will be doing (a crossover which will launch the upcoming CW show Batwoman!!!). But looks like they will be teaming up with Constantine. This show is always funny and has so much heart. Here’s to hoping for four more years!

On tonight’s episode, “The Virgin Gary,” after the Legends defeated Mallus and wiped the final anachronism from time, they find themselves in unfamiliar territory with the Time Bureau. All that changes when Constantine informs Sara of a new magical threat that leads the team to Woodstock. Constantine thinks he knows how to defeat the new threat but will need the help of the team and their special klepto talents to help with his spell. Meanwhile, Nate and Rory go on an adventure, leaving Nate facing someone from his past.

Find out what threat leads the team to Woodstock tonight on The CW at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching Arrow.

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.

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.
