Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2021 June 13

It’s a week for Deceptive Covers, as The Legends tease an episode about chess with the title, but the episode description seems pretty run of the mill.  Batwoman teases a regeneration, but only battles classic villains.  Flash teases a lot of secrets, but instead unmasks everyone.  Superman and Lois suggests missing mothers, but they’re all there and arguing with their kids.  Blacklist gives us a season finale, and suggests to reveal everything about the stars.  Loki, Handmaid, Bad Batch, and My Hero Academia all have new episodes, but doesn’t give us any descriptions.

  1. The reveal on Legends was interesting. Though anyone that didn’t see it coming by the first few minutes of this episode probably should have. Whether it is what it seems to be is still an open question, of course, though they do seem to have been playing this sort of thing straight. The title of the next episode does suggest some interesting complications, though.

  2. Superman and Lois is still pretty high quality, but I think that we can’t claim this Krypton is the same one Supergirl came from.

    Edit to Add: And Wikipedia reminds me we had a Morgan Edge on Supergirl already, so nevermind, we’ve been far from the same universe for the whole season.

    • Also, I feel bad for Lois, who now is watching her husband talk to his mother in his High School Sweetheart’s body. Freud couldn’t help her deal with that situation.

    • I’ll eventually post a review of the last two episodes and the dubious semi-resolution to the Morgan Edge situation. We can blame any inconsistencies on the Crisis reboot– and on the still-answered question of whether this show exists in the same temporal setting as this one.

      I intend to address, at least in passing, the Lanal situation you address.
