This week, we return with a new post title with 20% more DC and 100% more dragons! I didn’t even know Doom Patrol had started, and we are already 10 episodes in, but they will also appear here along side the warring armies of Westeros. Out homegrown deities explore what happened to one of the more popular in the pantheon, the hammer wielding Donar. Except for Supergirl, the other Disguised Champions are back on patrol alongside their doomed streaming exclusive friends. Arrow’s Laurel redemptive arc hits a rocky patch, Mona reads some classic literature, and Flash gives us answers on Nora’s motivations. The junkies in Riverdale find themselves deeper into the clutches of a cult. Marvel gives us Cloak fighting his past while Dagger fights a sex trafficking ring. The Orvile’s description seems like we get our classic time loop episode. My most biggest anticipation this week however is watching Star Trek: Discovery boldly goes into its season finale.

The battle with Control continues, and my earlier suspicion as to where this might go almost gets confirmed this week. I don’t really like it, but they’ve already filmed the final episodes, so struggle is pointless.
We do get some impressive character interaction this week.

Discovery finally reveals the Red Angel’s identity in what is otherwise the weakest episode of Season Two.

So, Spock is even more special than TOS had us believe, Culber still hasn’t come to terms with being alive again, and Talos IV remains a wasteland inhabited by bulgy-headed aliens, though they’re somewhat less sinister and, well, alien, than a low-budget series made them look and sound fifty+ years ago.
Discovery does give us a visually-impressive wasteland, along with further clues regarding the Red Angel.

Burnham finally locates Spock, Pike leads a dangerous mission, and the finale foreshadows a major role for the mysterious Lt. Cmdr. Airiam and a return to a mind-bending TOS planet.
With Lent beginning next week, the show begins a quest to achieve maximum Easter Eggs.

Are you a Dork? A Geek? A Nerd? Or all of the above?
Every week, I’ll be rolling out a new podcast with 30 questions on a Geeky topic. Not-so-surprisingly, Episode One is all about Star Trek: The Original Series. Think of it as an in-home game show to play by yourself or with your friends.
