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.

Tonight, the fourth season of The Flash begins on The CW. As the third season came to a close, Team Flash had its final showdown with speedster Savitar, who turned out to be a future version of Barry. In the process, H.R. sacrificed himself to save Iris, Caitlin learned there’s a cure for her condition, Cisco modified Savitar’s stolen Speed Cannon so that it would release Jay Garrick from prison, and Gypsy returned from across the multiverse to save Cisco. During the final altercation, Barry couldn’t bring himself to kill Savitar, but Iris was more than willing to do the deed, shooting him dead. Afterwards, Central City was being rocked by earthquakes. The Speed Force was unstable and the prison needed a replacement, so Barry volunteered to go, since all of this mess was due to his selfish acts. Meanwhile, Caitlin refused to take the cure, as she wanted to figure out who she really was.

Who will step up to protect Central City in Barry’s absence? How and when will Barry return from the Speed Force, and how will his time there have affected him? With Caitlin refusing to take the cure, is there a danger of her becoming evil again? With H.R. dead, will we see another version of Dr. Wells appear to take his place?

The third season was a bit of a downer, with Barry constantly moping about something or further messing things up due to his selfishness. Also, it was the third year in a row where the big villain was yet another speedster. The producers have promised to address these issues this season, getting this back to a more chill Barry and the lighter, more fun show people loved in the first season. Also, this year the big bad will not be yet another speedster! The Flash still remains my favorite of The CW’s superhero shows, and I’m looking forward to another season.

On tonight’s premiere, “The Flash Reborn,” a powerful armored villain threatens to level Central City if the Flash doesn’t appear, so Cisco makes a risky decision to break Barry out of the speed force. But the Barry that comes out isn’t the same Barry that went in.

Find out what’s different about Barry since his return tonight on The CW at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Middle, Fresh Off the Boat, black-ish, The Mayor, Kevin (Probably) Saves the World, Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders, The Mick, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, American Horror Story: Cult, and Chrisley Knows Best.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine is always so much fun, and last week was a prime example. Who else loved meeting Capt. Holt’s mother? LOL The Honorable Laverne Holt was basically just Raymond Holt as a slightly shorter, slightly older female. They talked the same, thought the same, and reacted the same to everything. Really hysterical. Jake got the honor (only after Amy let her nerves and excitement get the better of her and reacted to the chance to help by dorking out…) of helping when Mrs. Holt’s apartment was robbed. He and Capt. Holt figured out it was robbed while she was at Wine Club, and they went undercover at the next meeting. When the apartment that Jake gave the address of to the hostess was broken into, he realized it was the hostess and her boyfriend, and they were arrested. Of course, the best story line for that episode was Capt. Holt realizing his mother was dating and she hadn’t told him. He reacted more strongly than we’ve ever seen him – stopping the car in the middle of the road, getting out, and calmly walking away. LOL The side stories of Terry, Charles, and Rosa remodeling the breakroom was great (what the heck was their remodel, anyway? Crazy… LOL), as was Scully and Hitchcock’s reaction to it. Needless to say, seeing them rubbing all over the new couch and stuff was…vaguely disturbing!

Then in the second episode, Jake and Rosa got involved in a case with their idol, Lieutenant Melanie Hawkins. Unfortunately, the show dealt a huge shocker to Jake (& presumably Rosa, although we didn’t see her reaction), right after they were invited to be on her team, when they learned that Lieutenant Hawkins is a dirty cop. Instead of actually looking for the bank robbers like they are supposed to be…they ARE the bank robbers. Eek! My favorite part of that episode, though, was Scully and Hitchcock fighting like little boys after Scully blew off Hitchcock for their weekly brunch or whatever in order to spend time with his new girlfriend. They had a ranch dressing fight (ew. LOL), called each other names, and basically acted like babies. Nothing Charles or Terry could do would make a dent in their fighting. Finally, Gina came in and said they were acting like animals so they needed to be treated like animals. When she yelled and clapped her hands at them, then gave them treats after they apologized, it worked perfectly. LOL

So now that Jake and Rosa know Hawkins is dirty, will they try to take her down in tonight’s double-episode finale? Of course they will. You couldn’t expect anything less, could you? Things won’t go as planned, I promise. I’ve seen both episodes, and they truly live up to the fun and excitement, as well as the jaw-dropping moments of shock and surprise that Brooklyn Nine-Nine likes to fling at the viewers on their finales. LOL

On tonight’s episodes, “The Bank Job/Crime & Punishment,” after discovering a dangerous secret, Jake and Rosa call for back-up from Holt and Pimento (guest star Jason Mantzoukas). Meanwhile, Boyle objects to Gina’s new boyfriend (guest star Ryan Phillipe). Then, Jake and Rosa are framed for a crime they didn’t commit, it’s up to the Nine-Nine to find a way to bust them out. Gina Gershon also guest stars.

Find out what happens with Jake and Rosa and why Boyle objects to Gina’s new boyfriend tonight on FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Chopped Junior, Great News, Prison Break, & Chopped.

They blew up the lab!! Did that freak anyone else out at the end of last week’s Bones, when the lab at the Jeffersonian literally got blown to smithereens?? What a way to take down a set when a show is ending, huh? LMAO Anyway, through the viewpoint of four different characters, we followed each of them from the wedding reception up until the bomb went off. I’m totally going out of order, but here were the highlights: Cam’s purse was messed with at the wedding reception, and her keycard for the lab platform was stolen, which is ultimately how the bombs got smuggled into the lab in the middle of the night. Two prisoners escaped from prison, and Kovac (who was after Booth and his family and killed Max) was one of them – he then killed the other man and escaped. At the reception, Avalon warned Booth that Bones was in significant danger. He started to shrug it off but ultimately took the warning to heart. Bones and Angela had a sweet moment of friendship at the reception. Aubrey asked Jessica to move to LA with him when he goes for his new job. She not only turned him down but she broke up with him completely. Oh, and Angela’s pregnant! I figured that out as soon as she started puking her guts up at Zach’s trial. Speaking of Zach… Caroline did all she could to sway the judge in his favor, even though she was the PROSECUTION. It was sweet. And it worked. Between the evidence and all the testimony, Zach is a free man – as soon as he finishes serving the 13 months for helping the killer in the first place. Finally, back to the bomb… Bones had an epiphany moments before the bomb was discovered to be at the lab, and she ran off to grab the evidence, and that left her, Booth, Angela, and Hodgins (who was slower to get out because of his wheelchair)…TRAPPED IN THE LAB WHEN IT EXPLODED! What the what?!

Obviously they can’t all die, right? I trust Hart Hanson and Stephen Nathan and their crew more than that. But will they all come away virtually unscathed? And will they find Kovac and whoever was helping him? Is Cam really leaving the Jeffersonian like she said, at least for six months while she and Arastoo do some traveling? Will Angela’s baby be named Pookie Jr.? I know all (okay, most…) of those answers, since I’ve seen the finale. But you’ll have to find out for yourself. If you’re a fan of the show, I urge you not to miss tonight’s episode. It was made for the fans by the biggest fans of the show, Hart and Stephen, and it’s definitely not-to-be-missed!

On tonight’s episode, “The End in the End,” with Kovac still at large, the team searches for evidence to track him down. After Brennan experiences a setback, the rest of the team must figure out how to find Kovac without her, putting everything she has ever taught them to the test. When all signs point to Kovac having outside help, as well as a hideout, Booth and Brennan go searching for him.

Catch the final episode of a terrific series tonight on FOX at 9:01/8:01c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing NCIS, Trial & Error, Chicago Fire, Chopped, & NCIS: New Orleans.
