[recaps by Jason P Hunt]
It’s our 50th episode! Discussions abound as we analyze the latest episodes of Supergirl, The Flash, and Arrow — stupid pills are being taken by just about … everyone in all three shows. What’s up with the Mon-El story? What’s up with apes in Central City with no panic in the streets? What’s up with that Prometheus reveal?
Plus: Aquaman footage from Zack Snyder, casting news for Black Lightning, and Vertigo’s legacy is now in the hands of IDW.
The panel: Ann Laabs, Dustin Adair, Jeff Hackworth, Timothy Harvey, Jason Hunt, and guest Sari Al-Shehbaz

Episode 214 “Homecoming”
Written by Caitlin Parrish & Derek Simon
Directed by Larry Teng
And it’s a good thing, right? Well, it is for everyone except Mon-El (Chris Wood), who seems to be the only one questioning the coincidence of Jeremiah Danvers (Dean Cain) being rescued just in time to warn the DEO about the super-nuclear-fusion-bomb thingy that Cadmus is planning to drop on National City. Like National City is the only place on the planet where aliens live? Is National City in a bubble? Like Kandor?…
But wait. How many people took the stupid pills this week?
And that’s not how you destroy a computer server, Jeremiah…
Episode 314 “Attack on Central City”
Teleplay by Aaron Helbing & David Kob
Story by Andrew Kreisberg
Directed by Dermott Daniel Downs
It’s Planet of the Apes 2! Except it’s not.
This week, the conclusion of Grodd’s (David Sobolov) master plan to use Gypsy (Jessica Camacho) to portal his army to Central City, where how many hundreds of apes in armor go trekking through the streets with nary a whimper from the citizenry, the media, the police, the National Guard, the old lady on the corner, the blind guy selling newspapers… Barry (Grant Gustin) and Team Flash are almost afterthoughts this week, with the main conflict involving a lot of CGI. And Solovar (Keith David).
Meanwhile, Jessie (Violett Beane) and Wally (Keiynan Lonsdale) decide they’re going to be together, and after Harry (Tom Cavanagh) tries to guilt-trip them both, he agrees to let her move to Earth-1, where H.R. (also Tom Cavanagh) is still causing everyone to wonder why he’s still there…
Returns March 7th
Episode 515 “Fighting Fire With Fire”
Written by Speed Weed & Ben Sokolowski
Directed by Michael Schultz
Oliver (Stephen Amell) throws Green Arrow under the bus this week, admitting that he ordered the cover-up in the case of Billy Malone’s death. This doesn’t go over too well with Prometheus or Vigilante, who are each after Oliver for … reasons. Oliver and Adrian Chase (Josh Segarra) don’t agree that this is the best course of action in the face of impeachment hearings, but it’s Oliver’s play to make. Chase is ready to hand in his resignation and fall on his sword to preserve Oliver’s administration.
Meanwhile, it turns out that Prometheus is actually … Adrian Chase? So who is under the Vigilante mask? Dustin has a theory…
