Here’s what’s coming to the CW this week on Arrowverse! Supergirl faces the Children of Liberty, Caitlin meets her father, Oliver may get out of prison, and the Legends face a Kaiju. Read on to see what’s coming up!

This Week on Arrowverse: SUPERGIRL

Civil unrest continues to grow as Agent Liberty gathers more followers in SUPERGIRL. This week’s episode, titled “Call to Action,” will see more people believing Liberty’s anti-alien message, filled with hate and violence. The synopsis reveals that Kara is discouraged about the debate she had with Ben Lockwood, who is secretly Agent Liberty. It also tells us that James Olsen and Lena Luthor will be at odds on how to best deal with the Children of Liberty, Lockwood’s followers.

The promo’s focus stays on the Children of Liberty, all wearing masks like their leader. Kara says that Agent Liberty is still out there, and his rhetoric of hate is growing. The Children gather in the street some with bats and tire irons. James says that the violence is only going to get worse.

As the Children riot and attack aliens, we hear a voiceover from Liberty saying that together they will rise and overcome. It looks as though the real world parallels SUPERGIRL is attempting to make are continuing as the conflict gets bigger. It’s definitely not as black and white of a situation like Supergirl’s has to deal with before. Throwing punches won’t change hearts and minds.

This Week on Arrowverse: THE FLASH

This week on Arrowverse, Caitlin will meet her father on THE FLASH. Titled “The Icicle Cometh,” the focus will definitely be on Caitlin reuniting with her previously — believed to be — dead dad. However, it remains to be seen if that’s a good thing. While the synopsis does tell us about Caitlin and her dad (Kyle Secor), it also reveals that Iris and Sherloque will be looking into a clue about Cicada and his whereabouts. Even with two detectives and a girl from the future, Cicada’s still an unknown and a mystery. Hopefully, Cisco re-tasking the Thinker’s satellite last episode will help in that venture.

The episode’s focus is pretty strong on Caitlin finding her dad. It begins with Team Flash in the snow, entering a safe house. Caitlin meets with her dad, asking him how he’s still alive. He shares that he quarantined himself for the safety of others. However, that doesn’t seem like Cisco’s convinced. In another shot, Caitlin looked down at her arm, asking someone as to what they did to her, presumably her father. Barry says he thinks about the situation like a CSI, and that his story doesn’t add up. Caitlin counters by saying that he’s the only family she has left.

I’m very curious about Caitlin’s dad and what his deal is. I’m pretty confident that we’re going to discover that he’s the reason for Killer Frost. Will he have ice powers too? We’ll see.

Oliver might get out of prison!! Don’t lie, I know you’ve been waiting for this chance as much as I have. It’s just not the same with him behind bars. This week’s episode is “Due Process,” so I’m guessing we’ll be getting a big focus on the DA we all know and love? Tolerate? Regardless of how you feel about Laurel, she’s working on getting Oliver out of prison, so you can’t be too harsh. At least not in this episode.

The synopsis for this episode backs up my guess. It says, “Slabside becomes even more dangerous after a guard is murdered and everyone is a suspect. Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) enlists help from a surprising source in her pursuit of Diaz (Kirk Acevedo), and Laurel (Katie Cassidy) flexes her muscles as the District Attorney.”

As for the rest of the team, it looks like they’ll all be working together on something again. I love all the members of this team and especially love seeing them all back together. I don’t know who Felicity’s surprising source for help will be, but wouldn’t it be perfect if it was Anatoly? The trailer is a bunch of action scenes grouped together, with hints at bombs and things blowing up as per usual. The new Green Arrow even makes an appearance.

But the best moment from the trailer is Dinah saying, “Green Arrow swooping in to save the day,” and then cuts to Oliver’s prison friend, telling him, “Typical Green Arrow move.” Most likely not completely related scenes in the show, but I love what the edit put together. Because that is definitely a Green Arrow move, new or old.

This Week on Arrowverse: LEGENDS OF TOMORROW

Last week, LEGENDS gave us a wonderful horror comedy at summer camp. I’m not sure what’s more enjoyable—Ray’s counselor geekiness, Constantine having to wear a costume, or watching Sara actually have fun with the experience. I’m also impressed with how the show still had some drama with Ava’s lack of childhood, Charlie’s prison talk with Mick, or the return of Nora Dahrk. So how does LEGENDS top itself this week? Kaiju.

For those not in the know, Kaiju is the name for classic Japanese monster movies, which looks like our theme for next week. I’m a huge GODZILLA fan, so the idea of the team going to Japan and fighting a giant monster is awesome for me. It’s a good thing, too because there really isn’t a lot else to go in this week’s trailer. That’s not unusual for this show, but it does make it look a tad one note. At least with the camp episode, the monster was vague enough that we could wonder just what the team was in for. Here it’s a giant squid, and that’s really about it. Still, LEGENDS seems to really soar with these kind episodes so I shouldn’t complain.

Continuing to Develop Relationships

The characters also add a lot of potential for what can happen next. Sara and Ava’s relationship has grown nicely, and I hope to see it continue. If nothing else, they both should have a common goal of keeping Nate and Charlie from meeting (but eventually, that’s got to happen).

Charlie adapting to the Legends should also be good to watch, especially as Ray turns his focus on finding Nora. Constantine’s injury should provide plenty of drama, as there’s only so much time left to find Nora and save him (which is actually weird for a show about time travel). Regardless, with Kaiju, a character drama and a return I’ve been waiting for, this should be another great episode this week on Arrowverse.

The Arrowverse shows all air on the CW. 

One Comment

  1. […] Last week’s LEGENDS managed to blend Thanksgiving and kaiju together into one crazy package. It was another strong episode, especially with the cameo of original GODZILLA director Ishiro Honda. The madcap Thanksgiving moments with Nate, Gary, and Ava were just as good. However, this week the Legends face an even greater, more horrifying threat — an audit. […]
