It wasn’t terribly likely of Arrow to introduce Laurel back into the mix without some caveat, and Wednesday’s “Who Are You?” gave at least several. Not only was that not our Black Canary, but a new songstress has arisen in Hub City; apparently with significantly more skills. At least per the extended “Second Chances” trailer.

‘Arrow’ Season 5 opens 2017 asking “Who Are You?” to an obviously fake Laurel, but does Prometheus’ master plan make any more sense than last year? Plus, who’s the new Canary Cry-baby, or Oliver’s flashback friend? Find out in our full review!
It’s taken three years to get us there, but The Flash is finally ready to Vibe on a new costumed hero. An extended trailer for next week’s “Dead or Alive” finally gives Cisco the full suit from his future vision, as the Justice League’s Gypsy comes to town, and a certain Super-set makes an appearance.
The Flash had plenty of looming mysteries to address by the time of 2017 premiere “Borrowing Problems From the Future,” the title of which proved surprisingly literal. Not only were Savitar’s three prophecies shoved aside, but Season 3 laid the groundwork for its two-part musical “Duet” with Supergirl, a certain city of the apes, and more.
There’s no force more deadly than Mother Nature herself, and The 100 are about to discover no amount of Grounders, Mountain Men or A.I. can compete (not for laugh of trying). See for yourself in the first Season 4 poster, as Clarke and co. stare down nuclear doom, albeit a very pretty one.
Long before Flash and Supergirl confirmed their musical crosover “Duet,” fans pointed to the shared Glee past between Grant Gustin and Melissa Benoist as proof of concept. Now, their Music Meister fittingly hails from the same hallowed halls, as Darren Criss signs on to musically menace the Super-duo.
Melissa Benoist certainly made some worthwhile headlines this weekend, and just in time for Supergirl herself to make a 2017 debut with Kevin Smith’s “Supergirl Lives.” The first clips for the Girl of Steel’s return episode have arrived, and suffice to say, Kara and Mon-El are going to spend some time facing their vulnerabilities.
For the most part, Arrow has managed to keep continuity in order as the flashbacks interact with present day, though word of Lexa Doig’s Talia al Ghul appearing in Oliver’s Russian past raised a few questions. Thankfully, producers promise that Talia’s appearance won’t throw too many wrenches in the works, and might just give us a Nyssa-Talia meeting one day.
Seeing as we could all use something lighter to think about, Supergirl and The Flash are officially reporting for rehearsal of their big musical crossover. Not only has The CW set a late March debut for the showstopping two-part event, but we also know which Arrow-verse stars will flex their pipes.
Two Flash episodes under his belt (jorts?) give Kevin Smith a fair shot not to have bungled 2017 Supergirl return “Supergirl Lives” next week, and it seems The CW would agree. Smith will apparently be back to direct another episode, before Season 2 is out.
