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.

Despite a well-known roster of heroes, Arrow and The Flash’s Atom-centric teamup spinoff still ranks as something of a mystery with fans. Now at least, a legendary formal title may have emerged for the new series, as well as insight into how long the series would last each season.
Last night’s Arrow installment “Broken Arrow” brought plenty of bodies and bloodshed, though at least one major character departed with the suggestion that they wouldn’t return, at least on a regular basis. Now, Arrow bosses have confirmed that a major character of the series won’t return as a regular in Season 4, but may drop back in a few weeks from now.
Arrow fans have been anticipating that Season 3 would drop plenty of bodies before its finale, but good grief, did tonight’s “Broken Arrow” spill a good deal of blood for a CW drama. Find out who from #TeamArrow landed themselves on the wrong end of a blade, and what Atom-ic and Flash-y mysteries are afoot by our full review!
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.
Both Arrow and The Flash have already crossed over with each other enough times to make our heads spin, with plenty more to come leading into either CW series’ final episodes this season, not to mention that insane spinoff. Now, the DC dramas come together for their biggest crossover yet, as the CW stars brawl through a “Superhero Fight Club”!
We still don’t know what to make of Arrow or The Flash spinning off The Atom into his own super-team of faces both new and old, but already DC’s TV Avengers may have assembled. A new set photo teases the new team’s first meeting with Barry and Oliver, but what does it mean for either season finale?
Even as Arrow and The Flash drop spoilery teases of their upcoming finale episodes, we still have little clue what to make of the proposed spinoff teaming The Atom, Hawkgirl, Rip Hunter, Captain Cold, Caity Lotz and more. Now, a few new tidbits may have emerged indicating which new DC heroes could pop up on The Flash, and how Caity Lotz might slip back into a Canary role.
Fans of The Vampire Diaries, we have both good news and bad. On the plus side, we’ve just discovered that the sexy supernatural soap is still on the air, and airing its sixth season at that, so hooray! In less hooray news however, series star Nina Dobrev has decided to leave The Vampire Diaries behind after the current run. Who will write the Diaries, or … uh, Vampire the Vampires now? Is that what happens on this show?
The Flash will take yet another break this week before returning with next Tuesday’s Atom-ic “All Star Team Up,” but in case that super-spoilery teaser of the final Season 1 episodes wasn’t enough, the Scarlet Speedster has hit us again with another burst. Straight from WonderCon, find out who’s behind bars (or glass), and who’s getting an unexpected hookup in the weeks ahead!
