The third season of Fear the Walking Dead began Sunday night, and in the midst of the two-episode premiere, the show did something very unexpected. It was so unexpected, in fact, that I was sure I was watching a dream sequence. But no: what happened actually happened.
Last night’s Arrow season finale finally brought Ollie’s battle with Adrian Chase to a close. It also said goodbye to the flashback story the show’s been telling for five years, brought back as many characters as it could, and then... well, it wiped the slate clean in the most ridiculous of ways.
Last night Barry Allen and Savitar—a.k.a. Evil Barry Allen—finally had their long-fated battle. But that wasn’t even the most insane thing that happened in last night’s season finale of The Flash, and we need to talk about what all this means for Barry and the STAR Labs team.
The opening scene of Arrow’s very first episode included an easter egg that had comics fans in fits from the get-go: the mask of the villain Deathstroke, perched upon a makeshift stand, speared by an arrow. Ominous, right? Well, last night’s Arrow finally answered how and why that mask was there, and... well, the…
We finally found out who killed Jason Blossom last night. Of course, why he was murdered is still up in the air and a whole new mystery popped up. But none of that matched the episode’s big reveal, which snatched the crown of weirdness from any other contender. And, in this show, that’s some seriously stiff…
After months of speculation, The Flash finally unmasked its latest villain, a big bad speedster, and gasp! It’s someone Barry Allen already knows. Stop me if you’ve heard this one before, which you most definitely have if you’ve watched the past two seasons of The Flash, because yes, we’re doing this thing again.
The previous seasons of The Leftovers focused on the devastating aftereffects of the Departure, an event that altered reality and coaxed some mighty strange behavior from those left behind. Season three began last night, and instead of looking back, the world is now looking ahead—to the end.
Agents of SHIELD returned last night with an episode that takes place entirely within the Hydra-dominated simulation in the Framework. And even though everything we see is “fake,” it’s allowed the show to reflect our world in the way only dystopia can.
We’ve said it before and we’ll undoubtedly say it again, but the second season of Legends of Tomorrow is delivering more fun per minute than any other superhero show on television, and it’s not even close. Last night... oh my god, last night’s episode.
If you, like me, obsess over Riverdale, you may have seen a spate of tweeting from the show’s stars that revealed that there was going to be a scene that referenced the old Archie comics in the most direct way the show has ever done. It was an unrelenting parade of misery, but for me it was absolutely delightful.
When Star Wars Rebels was first announced, we knew it was going to be about the formation of the Rebel Alliance. And it has been, but in a very roundabout way we didn’t quite expect. However this week’s episode finally—and literally—delivered on that original promise, and it was worth the wait.
The star of last night’s episode of Agents of SHIELD wasn’t the action or the classic “robot decides mankind is too irrational to live” moment. It was the way the show portrayed the bone-deep paranoia that comes when anyone of your friends can be evil.
Whenever The Flash does a Grodd story, it pulls out all the stops—and last night’s episode, the start of a two-part Gorilla City spectacular, was no exception. I still can’t believe that the thing that makes The Flash ramp into overdrive isn’t the speedforce, it’s a giant telepathic evil gorilla.
Ever since skeezy Dr. Holden Radcliffe made his first Life Model Decoy, I’ve been waiting for this. Sure, he created Aida to infiltrate SHIELD HQ and steal the Darkhold; then he imprisoned Melinda May and sent an unwitting LMD of her as back-up. But that’s small potatoes to the LMD craziness seen over and over again…
Ever since Laurel Lance died, Arrow has been tiptoeing around the question of who could carry on the Black Canary mantle. In last night’s episode, we got the answer—and this time, unlike the Lance sisters, she’s as close to the authentic comic book version of Black Canary as you could want.
Gotham, the least traditional Batman origin story of all time, has been dancing around pretty much every villain in the Caped Crusader’s rogues gallery since its debut. But as this preview for the upcoming mid-season premiere shows, at least Edward Nygma looks like he’s finally done fooling around and is ready to…
The season finale of The Good Place consisted of two back-to-back episodes last night. The first was the usual funny but weird look at morality. The “medium” place was so perfect that it’s actually a shame it got completely overshadowed by what happened in the second, final episode.
The midseason finale of Agents of SHIELD, “The Laws of Thermal Dynamics,” wrapped up most of the dangling plot threads from the beginning of the season—right up until it ended with a big ole twist that opened a huge can of worms.
Happy 100th episode, Arrow. We got you some spaceships, some heartbreak, and a whole lot of awesomeness.
The Flash has a big problem this season—and it’s not the evil speedster Savitar, or the machinations of Doctor Alchemy. It’s Barry Allen himself. Last night, the show finally started addressing it, but too much damage may have already been done.
