This Week on Arrowverse: ARROW
“Crossing Lines” is the title of this week’s ARROW episode. Coming in as episode three of season seven, this episode looks like it’ll further several of the storylines set up in the first two episodes, most notably Oliver’s and Felicity’s. The synopsis promises “Still in prison, Oliver (Stephen Amell) faces his biggest challenge yet. Meanwhile, Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) gets an intriguing offer, and Diggle (David Ramsey) asks Curtis (Echo Kellum) to go undercover for A.R.G.U.S..”
After watching Felicity take her life into her own hands in episode one and seeing her do her best to help A.R.G.U.S. in episode two, I’m looking forward to her getting a chance to use all of her talents and skills in a way that allows her to hopefully accomplish her goal of getting Diaz. Although the trailer for “Crossing Lines” doesn’t mention Felicity at all, judging by these set pictures and the way episode two ended, the F.B.I. looks like it’ll be the perfect place for Felicity.
Speaking of the trailer for this week’s episode, the 30-second trailer revolves completely around Oliver. We get almost dream-like sequences of flashbacks and voiceovers combined with Oliver fighting yet again in prison. Has Oliver taken on more than he can chew once again? I honestly wouldn’t be surprised.
What would surprise me though is if Curtis’ undercover mission for Diggle and A.R.G.U.S. actually goes according to plan? Curtis isn’t the best liar and now he’ll be under pressure? His job at A.R.G.U.S. so far has been relatively pressure-free, so I’ll be intrigued to see how he handles this high-pressure situation.
This Week on Arrowverse: LEGENDS OF TOMORROW
This is something else I love about LEGENDS: they always find great time periods for their catastrophes to happen in. It’s not clear if the Legends are going into Pilgrim times or the Salem Witch trials, but either period is perfect. An evil fairy godmother is perfect for a group of strict religious Puritans to freak out over. That said, the show needs to be careful about how they’re doing this season. Turning good magical beings evil is funny, but it can get overused. An actual witch or demon every so often could be a nice change.
Character-wise, it’s going to be interesting to see the Legends deal with the unfamiliar magical themes this season. The last episode was strange enough for them. I’m sure Constantine is saying ‘I told you so’ every few moments on the Waverider. I can only imagine what the technology-proficient Ray is going to think about this new field. However, I am enjoying imagining Mick’s reactions each week (SHUT UP!).
And if they are going to Salem, then Sara is probably going to deal with the repercussions of the last time she was there. That should be an interesting angle to explore as her relationship with Ava continues. Overall, this looks like another great episode. Still, I’m hoping it brings us closer to the return of Nora Dahrk. I mean it is about witches…
This Week on Arrowverse: THE FLASH
This Tuesday’s episode of THE FLASH is titled, “News Flash.” According to the episode synopsis, Barry and Iris are going to struggle with a big parenting challenge. Apparently, a new meta goes after Nora with a very specific purpose.
Ralph will also be dealing with some issues of his own until an unlikely source helps him get his confidence back.
The episode promo reveals quite a bit more. It looks as though we may get a reveal as to why Nora has been giving Iris the cold shoulder. Whatever it is, Iris asks Barry how she could ever do it to Nora. We get shots of both Nora and Iris in tears. Furthermore, we see Nora and Flash racing to a sports stadium. The title cards that a quick temper runs in the family. Nora glares at Barry, his voice telling her to snap out of it sounding distant and muffled.
Nora says that what she needs to do is kill Barry, then chases him through the stadium. It looks as though someone could be messing with Nora’s head. Perhaps this new meta? We’ll have to tune in Tuesday to find out.
This Week on Arrowverse: SUPERGIRL
Lastly, this Week on Arrowverse has a lot in store for Supergirl fans.
Supergirl is out of commission, and it looks like this week’s episode title, “Man of Steel” will primarily focus on new season villain, Agent Liberty. Played by Sam Witwer, this episode will show the origins of professor Ben Lockwood. The synopsis tells us the Lockwood didn’t always hate aliens, but after some incidents and input from his anti-alien father, Ben Lockwood becomes Agent Liberty, a villain determined to eradicate alien life.
The episode’s promo doesn’t reveal much, but it does show some pretty cool shots of Liberty and his steel mask. The rest of the short promo shows us that Supergirl is not doing well at all. She appears to be on life support, and from what Alex and the other DEO agents are saying, they’re fearing that they might lose her. When Alex asks what kind of person is capable of doing this, we get a shot of Agent Liberty, indicating that he’s that said person.
A woman, supposedly talking to Lockwood, says that they could make this country a better place, their idea of better most likely involving terminating all alien life on the planet, no matter the cost of collateral.
