DC Television Week 9 Discussion

Sorry for the late post, I got swamped and just started watching the shows as I am posting this.  Lucifer goes to a Cinnabon, Supergirl packs an umbrella, Barry gets political advice from Caitlin, The Legends need a weapon like Diana Prince, and the team on Arrow struggle to make two subtraction problems equate.

(Synopsis cut and pasted from Trakt.com.)

Lucifer – S03E09 – The Sinnerman – Lucifer is worried when he realizes that recipients of his favors start to turn up dead. After he and Chloe investigate, they are finally brought face-to-face with the Sinnerman. Meanwhile, Detective Pierce returns to work after taking a bullet, Charlotte finds a new career and Amenadiel has a new love interest.

Supergirl – S03E09 – Reign – Supergirl investigates a mysterious symbol popping up all over National City, tracing its origins back to an ancient prophecy and the mark of the World Killer, Reign. Meanwhile, the tension between Lena and Morgan Edge continues to build, causing James to step in and offer up some protection, and possibly igniting a spark in the process.

The Flash – S04E09 – Don’t Run – Amunet kidnaps Caitlin and puts meta-dampener handcuffs on her to keep her from turning into Killer Frost. Amunet tells Caitlin she needs her to perform a tricky medical task and if Caitlin fails, Amunet will kill her. Meanwhile, The Thinker traps The Flash in a speedster-proof prison. With the clock ticking, The Team doesn’t have the time or resources to track both Caitlin and Barry so Iris is forced to choose who to save.

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow – S03E09 – Beebo the God of War – Rattled by recent events, the Legends dive into work which finds them investigating an Anachronism in a Viking settlement in the New World. The Legends realize that the Norsemen are worshipping an artifact as their god and are surprised by the artifact’s origin. For the first time, Sara is worried that they might need back up when Damien Darhk shows up. Meanwhile, Jax finds a loophole that could potentially change history, but it is a risk he is willing to take.

Arrow – S06E09 – Irreconcilable Differences – Quentin Lance is kidnapped by Black Siren and Cayden James, who are looking to trade Lance’s life for a weapon of mass destruction. Oliver and Team Green Arrow must figure out a way to save Lance while still keeping the city safe.

  1. Lucifer: Nobody really thinks that guy was really The Sinnerman, right? I mean, we know it’s Lt. Clark Kent, right?

    Supergirl: Punching the ice sculpture looked awesome. However, when you fight someone who can fly, is holding them over the edge of a building a threat?

    The Flash: I love the blue tree.
    Why couldn’t they look for both? Why does a surgical mask act like a gas mask? (That scene didn’t work at all, did it?)

    Legends: So, I guess this is where Captain Cold ended up.
    The ongoing campiness made the reveals pleasantly surprising.
    JOHN!!!!!!! w00t!!!!!

    (We’ll watch Arrow tomorrow.)

    • How much more campy can Legends get? None. none more campy…

      Still gotta love that show.

      So if _I_ knew Barry was moving too fast to be seen, how the heck did the “smartest man in the world” not figure it out….?

      • Devo knew Barry was vibrating faster than he could see. After all, he needed him to escape so he could be caught by the police for his murder. Devo only needed him restrained so he couldn’t go and save Cathlyn. He also knew that if he just released him, Barry would be suspicious, so he played dumb and allowed Barry to escape.

    • > Nobody really thinks that guy was really The Sinnerman, right? I mean, we know it’s Lt. Clark Kent, right?

      I seriously doubt it. I’m pretty sure he’s something that’s not exactly Human, though.

      > is holding them over the edge of a building a threat?

      It worked, didn’t it? (:

      • > It worked, didn’t it? (:

        I was thinking that, but still. It’s like offering a normal human a glass of water in attempts to threaten them with drowning.

        • I’ll agree that it looked stupid when she did it. However, Kara was pretty much already beaten up and out of energy and apparently Reign knew that.

          So it’s more like someone who’s already drowning and you throw a cup of water at them.

  2. Lucifer was great this week. I sure hope that guy is The Sinnerman, because if not they wasted a really good twist.

    Supergirl was OK but I’m a bit disappointed by the fight at the end. Reign took Kara out waaaaay too easily.

    Flash… ok, ugh.

    So, Barry flashes home, notices that crap happened, and just stays around. As soon as what’s his name called, Barry could have flashed right back and caught him. But no, I’ll just stand here and wait for the police to show up. I understand the logic (a teeny bit) – you’re dealing with someone who predicted your every move, so doing the unexpected is probably your best bet but come on. You could’ve put the guy in the pipeline before he knew what’s happening, explained the situation to everyone else and go back to exactly where you were and let the cops arrest you. Or, if you’re smart, show up right behind them saying you’re here to check on the alarm.

    As it is, there’s zero blood on Barry and he has a witness saying there was only one knife in the Chekov’s Knife set, and probably no evidence of him dragging a disabled person all the way to his house. I’m foreseeing a really annoying few episodes in the future.

    Arrow… what happened in Arrow again? Oh yeah, everyone was an idiot and stuff didn’t make sense and now the team has broken up again. This is what Three’s Company would have been like if everyone was a psychopath.

  3. The other thing that upset me was Jimmy saying “Bah humbug”, as if it was a two word phrase that means the opposite of Merry Christmas, as if “Bah” means “feel bad” and “Humbug” was the Krampus holiday.

    It was Blaine reading the Wizard of Oz on the podcast where I had to look up the concept of a humbug. (A Humbug is a person who is like a conman, or the con that the conman was doing.) It’s a statement of Bah!! (That holiday you are talking about is a) Humbug.

    It’s the tiniest of nit to pick, but I’m annoyed that I suspect there wasn’t a single person on the set who knew any better.

  4. Regarding Sinnerman: my first thought was “Lucy has a Red John!” If you get the reference, there, you’ll know what I think about how straight forward things are going to be. (And, yes, I really did think “Lucy” :) ) Anyway, it should prove interesting.

    On another note, I’m kind of digging the new Charlotte as a character. I don’t actually like her, but she adds a dimension to things.
