One thing that the Arrowverse shows do better than almost any other group of shows is crossovers, and the “Crisis on Infinite Earths” crossover has been epic in proportion, with a whopping five episodes. The first three episodes aired before Christmas, and we have been waiting, not so patiently, for the final two episodes that air tonight.

In the first three episodes, there was a lot that happened, so I’ll just give you a brief recap so that you are caught up enough for tonight’s episodes, but I do highly recommend that you watch the first three parts because it has been an incredible block of television.

The heroes gathered on Earth 38 because an anti-matter wave was set to hit there next after already taking out Argo, with the last of the Kryptonians. The heroes tried to stop the wave and made a stand against the Anti-Monitor’s army, but the Monitor later declared it a lost cause and started to force them to retreat. However, Oliver refused to leave and fought until his bitter end to save as many lives from Earth 38 as he could. Unfortunately, he later paid the ultimate price when his took his last breath, surrounded by many shattered family members and friends.

Mia and Barry struggled to accept Oliver’s death and enlisted Sarah’s help in resurrecting him. However, he told them to let him go and that he knew was destined for something greater. We were graced with the guest appearances of Constantine and Lucifer during this episode, which was strange but exciting for the viewers. Elsewhere, Supergirl and Batwoman attempted to locate the Paragon of Courage, who after some interesting moments turned out to be Batwoman herself. During this episode, we also saw Tom Welling, who was Clark Kent from Smallville, but we found out that he had given up his powers in order to be a dad.

When we left off at the end of the last episode, the seven paragons were all that were left standing after an anti-matter wave wiped out the whole universe. The shocking twist was that the Lex Luther replaced Brandon Routh’s Superman as the Paragon of Truth after Lex got his hands on the Book of Destiny.

Whew. Are you still as confused as I am? Thankfully tonight will bring us much-needed closure and answers!

First up on Arrow, “Crisis on Infinite Earth Part Four,” stuck in the Vanishing Point, the Paragons search for a way to escape. The futility of the situation is compounded by The Flash’s disappearance. However, hope appears in the form of Oliver, who reveals that he has become something else. Meanwhile, the origin stories for The Monitor and Anti-Monitor are revealed.

Then we conclude with DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, with “Crisis on Infinite Earth Part Five,” and we are left with the fact that Worlds lived, worlds died. Nothing will ever be the same.

Tune in for the beginning of the end on The CW starting at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching This Is Us, FBI, The Resident, NCIS, Ellen’s Game of Games, FBI: Most Wanted, New Amsterdam, and Gordon’s Ramsay’s 24 Hours to Hell and Back.

Just when you thought you’d seen the last of the Dreamworks Dragons franchise, NBC is bringing back Hiccup (Jay Baruchel), Astrid (America Ferrera), Stoick (Gerard Butler), Gobber (Craig Ferguson), Fishlegs (Christopher Mintz-Plasse), and more of your favorite characters for the all-new animated holiday special, How to Train Your Dragon Homecoming.

This new tale is set 10 years after the end of How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World, just before that film’s epilogue. The latest generation of Vikings in New Berk hasn’t grown up with dragons and are unaware of the great bond that had once existed between dragons and humans. So as New Berk prepares to celebrate the Snoggletog Festival, Hiccup decides to put on a pageant to celebrate the dragons, which leads to some fun and exciting moments.

How to Train Your Dragon is probably my favorite animated franchise, so I’m excited that we are going to get a new story set in this world, especially with the original voice cast reprising their roles! I am really looking forward to checking out tonight’s holiday special.

Don’t miss it tonight on NBC at 8:30/7:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Making It, The Resident, The Flash, Arrow, The Purge, and Treadstone.

Tonight, CBS’s Celebrity Big Brother returns for a second season, with 12 new celebrities entering the Big Brother house to compete in a compressed version of the hit reality competition. I really enjoyed the first celebrity season last year, as things move along at a much faster pace than the regular summer show, which is stretched over 3 months instead of just a few weeks.

Julie Chen Moonves will once again be hosting the series, and this year’s batch of house guests includes an actual professional house guest, Kato Kaelin, who’s still stretching out his 15 minutes of fame from the O.J. trial. Also entering the house tonight are actors Jonathan Bennett (Mean Girls, Cake Wars), Joey Lawrence (Melissa & Joey, Blossom), & Tom Green (Road Trip); singers and/or reality TV stars Tamar Braxton (The Braxtons), Kandi Burruss (Xscape), and Dina Lohan (Living Lohan); and athletes Lolo Jones (Olympic track and bobsled), Ryan Lochte (swimming Gold medalist), Natalie Eva Marie (WWE wrestler), & Ricky Williams (former NFL superstar). Finally, there’s 10-day White House Director of Communications Anthony Scaramucci.

It looks like another odd mix of folks, though there are several cliques that could be formed or folks who already know one another going into the house. It will be interesting to see who teams up with whom and who ultimately wins the season.

Catch everyone moving in tonight on CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Good Doctor, Manifest, The Resident, The Passage, and Arrow.

The return of the “Arrowverse” continues tonight when the flagship show, which launched it all, returns for Arrow season seven. After a long-winding series of battles and betrayals, last year’s finale found Team Arrow storming Star City Police Department in pursuit of the evil mastermind Diaz. While the FBI, Arrow, and all his active teammates beat the crap out of the goons occupying the building, Diaz managed to escape. Fortunately they still had Oliver’s old Bratva pal Anatoli Knyazev in custody, and he gave up Diaz’s location for immunity on some charges. It turned out to be a trap though, and Maddog almost died!

Police Chief Lance cut a deal with Diaz after that, desperate to get Black Siren – his daughter’s doppelgänger from Earth2 – back from the gangsters alive. He was ready to order the FBI out of the investigation but only if Diaz showed him proof the alternate Laurel was alive. Since Lance had a pacemaker in his heart, Felicity was able to track him, and they sent in a rescue team. During this action, there were hints that Oliver cut some secret deal with the FBI. During the rescue, Diaz gut-shot Lance, bringing him near to death. Artemis saved Black Siren & Lance both, though. She also blasted Diaz off a roof into the river while he was fighting Oliver.

While Captain Lance was in surgery, his daughters from alternate worlds met each other. The exchange was cold, as they’re both kinda cold-hearted killers. Sadly Lance died. Even worse, Oliver had to admit that he was the real Green Arrow and then surrendered into FBI custody. He was sent to a SuperMax prison. That’s the deal he cut, in exchange for help from the FBI against Diaz. In the public confession speech, he also encouraged his team to remain vigilant in their fight to keep the city safe. The very last scene of the season was Oliver entering prison.

I read some of Stephen Amell’s recent interviews, and from what I gather, Oliver “Green Arrow” Queen, whom Amell plays in the series, will be in prison for a much longer time than fans may be expecting. This signals that the show runners may have adapted a Green Arrow movie script, which was based on Oliver having to face old enemies in a Super Max prison into the general arc of Arrow season seven. Tonight is just the start though, and I can’t wait to see where the show goes, as long as Felicity is in it!! Also: Bring back Ragman!!!

On tonight’s episode, “Inmate 4587,” at Slabside Maximum Security Prison, Oliver is determined to keep a low profile to shorten his sentence; Oliver is tested when he runs into old foes; Diggle and Dinah have taken on new jobs and left their costumes behind.

See how Oliver is handling prison tonight on The CW at 8/7c.

Other than this premiere, I’ll also be watching an episode of my The Man In The High Castle slow binge that has been happening for a week.

Tonight, the fourteenth season of Grey’s Anatomy comes to a close, as we say goodbye to at least two characters. Last week the episode started off on a happy note, with April sending out the invitations for Alex and Jo’s wedding. However, shortly afterwards, Matthew and April were involved in a car accident. Matthew showed up at the ER but didn’t know where April was. Owen headed out to search for Kepner and discovered her body unconscious and hypothermic in a ravine. It looked like this was the way that April was going to be written out of the show, but after three grueling hours, the doctors finally managed to revive her, and she appeared to be OK. Meanwhile, Arizona gave her notice to Bailey, noting that she would be moving to New York for the sake of her daughter, Sofia. Fortunately, Arizona’s former mentor, Dr. Herman, had returned to the hospital for a treatment, learned of this, and offered Arizona a job where she could work from New York.

It’s always disappointing to see main characters leave a long-running series, and I’ve really grown to enjoy April and Arizona. I’m really happy they didn’t end up killing off Kepner last week, though I’m curious to see how she will leave the series and how that affects the remaining characters. Will these be the only two exits from the series, or what other surprises await? Also, there have been quite a few weddings on this show over the years, and things never seem to go as planned, so will there be some hitch that prevents Alex and Jo from getting hitched?

On tonight’s finale, “All of Me,” the doctors attend Alex and Jo’s wedding, and things do not go as planned. Meanwhile, the stress from the past year has taken a toll on Bailey, and she will re-evaluate some of her decisions.

See if Alex and Jo actually get married and how April leaves the hospital tonight on ABC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Life in Pieces, Gotham, Arrow, and Imposters.
