If this past week’s Arrow installment “The Return” acted as a love letter to the series’ past, next Tuesday’s “Nanda Parbat” will bring us into the future. The completed A.T.O.M. suit arrives, as Oliver faces off with Ra’s al Ghul once more in the full round of photos from from next week’s latest Arrow, “Nanda Parbat!”

Arrow Season 3 lets loose its 14th installment of the year with “The Return,” as the Queens return to Lian Yu and find Slade Wilson (Manu Bennett) waiting for them, while in the past Oliver arrives back in Starling City, and checks in on his loved ones.
The Flash has already made tremendous impact on The CW’s Arrow-verse, and the hits keep coming before season 3's end. Not only will Falling Skies and Hellboy star Doug Jones play a new DC metahuman baddie, but so too will Flash characters Joe West and Cisco Ramon drop by Starling City for a visit.
Producers of The Flash have been promising for weeks now that a certain psychic super-primate would make a formal debut after his initial teases, and by Grodd, did they deliver. Watch DC’s Gorilla Grodd arrive to his full speaking glory in last night’s closing Flash tag from “Fallout!”
That shouldn’t be a revolutionary thing to say, and most of this stems from the type of TV logic that makes you look at blue sky and think, “Hmmm, but maybe it’s really orange?” Answers are rarely what they seem since shows often have something else up their sleeve to completely contradict the norm later on. Another reason why an unassailable fact stinks? Having answers is boring because then there’s no way for the audience to “participate,” as it were, in a piece of fiction. Yes, that participation is always an illusion, but simply mulling over possibilities (without the need to actually “solve” them) is one of the chief pleasures of serialized narration.
The Flash doesn’t mind monkeying around with a few teases of outlandish DC villain Gorilla Grodd, but could the CW drama ever truly bring the telepathic ape to life? A new promo for The Flash not only promises that “Grodd is Coming,” but also gives us a first look up-close with the psychic primate!
Now that Team Arrow has officially reunited and put battling “Canaries” behind them, Oliver and Thea will next head to the island of Lian Yu in preparation for Ra’s al Ghul’s return. That said, “The Return” is exactly what Slade Wilson was counting on, as Manu Bennett resurfaces to jack some Queens in the first photos of next week’s Arrow!
Firestorm finally got his due from The Flash with this past Tuesday’s “The Nuclear Man,” but the titular hero lived up to his namesake and left the fate of Ronnie Raymond and Dr. Martin Stein up in smoke. Learn what we find in the “Fallout” with our first photos of next Tuesday’s latest, and find out what DC villain has Barry flash-fried!
‘Arrow’ season 3 lets loose its 13th installment of the year with “Canaries,” as Count Vertigo (Peter Stormare)'s breakout complicates Laurel's efforts as Black Canary, while Oliver bristles against the team's new structure, and ponders whether or not to tell Thea the truth.
It’s somewhat ironic that an episode featuring this much Firestorm would leave me a little cold. But that’s where I am tonight with ‘The Flash,’ which did enough to keep things moving along even if its actual content was all over the map both narratively and tonally. There were about three or four solid episodes in “The Nuclear Man,” all fighting for the same space. But whereas the battleground over Ronnie Raymond’s body yielded a literal explosion, this episode yielded few fireworks.
