Yes, Mark Hamill is back in his second most iconic DC role in this week's The Flash. Will Syfy's Greek mythology show Olympus be cheesy fun or just plain terrible? Plus, Outlander's back from its honeymoon, Archer finishes up its season finale, and Steven Universe crosses over with Uncle Grandpa.

After premiering way back in January, this show about a teen warrior princess from another dimension who ends up living on Earth, is finally airing new episodes. Two of them, in fact:

In an effort to get a better grade on her math test, Star offers to help her teacher Miss Skullnick with her love life but accidentally turns her into a troll.

This week's episode is "The Raconteur of the Funeral Circuit." Sounds cheerful.

The Flash (8 PM, The CW)

Mark Hamill reprises his role as the Trickster, a villain who has been imprisoned for the last 20 years. Barry will meet with this original Trickster after a younger copycat killer who also calls himself the Trickster shows up in Central City and starts setting off bombs. The one thing about guys who call themselves Tricksters: you just can't trust either of them.

Be sure to keep the lights on during this week's episode. The challenge is to create the next great creepy doll character.

iZombie (9 PM, The CW)

This week, Liv ends up eating the brain of a hitman this week, which makes her feel, well, like a sociopathic jerk. What may be scarier, however, is the appearance of another zombie — and this one is somebody Liv used to know.

Olympus (10 PM, Syfy)

We have no idea if Syfy's Greek mythology show will be so-bad-it's-good or just plain bad. Given that the characters have names like "Hero" and "Oracle" and the whole thing looks like a green screen nightmare, our hopes are not too high.


Vikings (10 PM, History)

The appearance of the Viking fleet causes panic among the population of Paris. The Emperor Charles, urged by his daughter Gisla, announces in Court he will remain in the city.

Salem (10 PM, WGN)

Salem is trying to win us back by adding Lucy Lawless to its cast. We love Lucy, but not enough to subject ourselves to a second season of Salem. Sorry.
