Marvel’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ assembles its seventh season 2 installment in "The Writing on the Wall,” as the team investigates a string of murder victims with the mysterious writing etched on their bodies, Coulson begins to lose his composure, and Ward carries out his own nefarious agenda on the run.
We’re in that phase of ‘The Flash’ in which what’s new has worn off and the season’s true narrative hasn’t yet arrived. As such, we’re in a holding pattern, in which the same basic moves are repeated until the audience learns what’s what in the world of Central City. As mentioned in the last recap, this is all perfectly fine, and even though "Plastique" was a step down from "Going Rogue," it still has some core things that suggest long-term health for the show.

Every season of television needs a central conflict around which it revolves, around which some other, smaller conflicts float, tethered to its orbit, but always drawn into the grand design. 'American Horror Story' is the obnoxious, rebellious teenage series. It doesn't play by these rules and conventions, sometimes to its detriment. Conflicts and villains are introduced and swept away; those players whom we think major are offed in the first few episodes, and big bads emerge and converge in seemingly senseless fashion. Who are the true villains of 'Freak Show'? It's a question that perhaps the show is still trying to answer.
‘Arrow’ season 3 lets loose its fifth installment of the year with "The Secret Origin of Felicity Smoak,” as the arrival of her mother and a virus threatening the city hearken back to Felicity's past as an MIT graduate hacker, while Laurel continues her training with boxer Ted "Wildcat" Grant (J.R. Ramirez), and Oliver clashes with Thea over Malcolm Merlyn.
