The Gifted returns to the higher quality episodes we saw earlier in the season, while drawing even more from the source material. We are even treated to a few shots of the people I expected Andy and Lauren to be.

Supergirl was strong enough to time travel, bring forth a special review, and she even brought Lucifer into the discussion.1 Lucifer’s episode isn’t a typical episode, focusing on a new character for a one-shot type episode, but also decorates it with added Phlox! The Flash trains Elongated Man and gives us much deeper Wells. Legends visits Hollywood, but has nothing to do with the actress from the title. We also get to see Firestorm reversed. Arrow picks up from last week’s Slade Wilson cliffhanger.

The Gifted takes an episode to measure the height of the skateboard jumps, base jump dives, and just how many calories are in a turducken. Actually, none of that happened, and like many things marketed as extreme, it is relatively tame.

Marvel’s Inhumans gives us the tale of a royal family with super powers who have lived in secret on the moon and their first, forced visit to Earth. I haven’t heard much in the way of glowing reviews, but below is my Bureau 42 review.

For our weekly foray into the Distinguished Competition’s small-screen super-heroes: Supergirl is all about the girlfriends, and similarly The Flash primarily portrays the partying princesses. Meanwhile Legends and Arrow have to run some errands and take gifts (a Deathstroke and a Mack) back to the store. I may be a bit behind and have misinterpreted the synopsis, which appear after the cut.

The Gifted gets to an episode number where they can use the X in the number for the capital letter in their title. To celebrate, we are treated to yet another hit and run strike against Sentinel Services.

I was fortunate enough to have a chance to sneak out to catch Thor: Ragnarok last night. I am going to have to agree with the others and endorse the Norse.

Supergirl becomes Xenu, The Flash meets another DC fan-favorite, Legends visits another 80s film, and Arrow lets the characters switch seats.

Our Gifted mutants continue their escape from the Sentinels of last episode in “boXed In.” I would have gone for a joke about being boxed into the tropes of the genre, but they do seem to be well aware of their box and are deliberately trying to either play on it or to move past it. Besides, I don’t have to make a joke about the title, I’m not…nevermind.
