Bureau’s Breakroom’s Television Table – Week beginning 2020 April 19

Still inside?  Good news!  The Flash and the Legends have Defeated Corona and returned, with the Flash bringing the creepiest of assassins, Rag Doll back while the Legends seem to be planning a pastiche of Supernatural.  The anti-penultimate episode of Westworld arrives and the episode descriptions are just outright making fun of the people who are looking for individual episode descriptions.  Zoey listens to a SPRQ Point turf war, which probably will give us West Side Story vibes.  Cosmos gives a bright look at the near future.  Saul gives us season five’s finale.  The Blacklist seeks to help Dembe’s buddy.  If you want some animation, Louie turns 11 on DuckTales and Spider-Man gives some some symbiote shenanigans.
