Arrow fans were in for a big treat with tonight's "The Fallen," as DC dropped some major mythology, while Oliver and Felicity just plain dropped it. Yes, Olicity shippers, the inevitable has finally come to pass, and it was everything we always imagined it would be. Oh, and some stuff happened with Oliver, Thea and the League too, but we'll get to that!

‘The Flash’ Review: ‘Who Is Harrison Wells?’

The Flash can do many things well. “Moody” is not one of those things. So when “Who Is Harrison Wells?” slips into a melodrama about Caitlin’s disbelief over her mentor, which is a lot of tonight’s hour, the show gets bogged down in all the weight that burdened the show during its brief Firestorm arc. This week’s episode wasn’t bad, but it was certainly a letdown after the highs of the past two weeks. It was an installment running in place and only offering the illusion of actual progress.

Late last week, word broke that Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was already looking to set up its own spinoff, the comic bent of which would become clear by the Season 2 finale. Tonight’s May-centric “Melinda” finally gave us the titular agent’s backstory, but may also have broken the spinoff wide open with Coulson forming a super-team of his very own.

Review: ‘All Star Team Up’ Was a Supremely Entertaining Episode of ‘The Flash’

The CW
OK, let’s state up front that the Iris material is a complete anchor on the show and that Eddie Thawne is probably the only reasonable person on The Flash when it comes to her being in the dark about Barry Allen’s identity. The show is building towards a place where Eddie is disillusioned by The Flash and ultimately starts the path that Eobard Thawne picks up a few centuries from now. The show can’t undo the mess it’s done here, so it just has to plow through the muck until that glorious, glorious day in which Iris knows Barry Allen’s secret.

SNL Ranked: Taraji P. Henson Is Great in an Episode That Has No Idea What to Do With Her

Taraji P. Henson is only the eighth black woman to host SNL in 40 years, which is only half the reason why her appearance on the show is awesome — in addition to her killer role as Cookie on Empire, Henson is a versatile actress who’s been impressing us for some time now. That versatility certainly came in handy as this week’s guest host, although the writers never really figured out how to use Henson’s strengths. Read on as we rank this week’s SNL sketches from great to not-so-great.
