DC Recap Round-Up 3, SPECIAL EDITION: CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS (PART 2)

17 Jan

Welcome back from the holiday break, and welcome back to the second half of our recaps of Crisis on Infinite Earths! Before we close off this big crossover event, let’s just remind ourselves what happened last time, because it’s quite a bit. The Monitor assembles a team of heroes to combat the universe(s) destroying threat of the Anti-Monitor, and it goes…not so well. Oliver Queen gets killed off early, but may serve a bigger purpose in the fight yet to come, as something else. And as worlds are destroyed, our heroes fight to save the multiverse. Unfortunately for them, the last of their Earths are wiped away, and our core group of heroes find themselves whisked away to the Vanishing Point, a space outside of the universe where they are safe. That core group being: The Flash, Supergirl, Batwoman, White Canary, scientist Ryan Choi, Martian Manhunter, and…Lex Luthor? Just how do these seven even succeed at restoring EVERYTHING they’ve lost? And what is the dead Oliver Queen’s role in all of this? Continue reading

DC Recap Round-Up 3, SPECIAL EDITION: CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS (PART 1)

13 Dec

Welcome to the first of our special Recap Round-Ups on Crisis on Infinite Earths! There’s gonna be a lot of ground to cover, lots of team ups, lots of cameos, lots of surprises, and lots of deaths to cover for this one (making up the first three parts of this epic crossover), so let’s just get the basics out of the way. For the last year or so, we’ve had appearances by an alien being known as The Monitor, warning our heroes of a threat so immense it could destroy all of the multiverse! And now, things have lined up where that threat has come.

In the build-up, the Monitor recruited Oliver Queen and his friends (even bringing his grown children, Mia and William, from the future into the present) to prepare for the eventual multidimensional fight. Barry Allen has been living with the spectre of knowing The Flash will die because of this Crisis, and been preparing for that eventuality. And now, one of the Harrison Wells of the multiverse, Nash, may have just released said threat from its prison by accident! So, now the Crisis has begun! Continue reading

DC Recap Round-Up 3, Week 8: Prelude To CRISIS!

7 Dec

Welcome back! We talk about having a full deck of recaps, but we got that and then some this time around, covering double the episodes of The Flash and Black Lightning, and this week’s Supergirl and Batwoman. And next week, we still got an episode of Black Lightning to finish off the year, along with maybe something extra to fill out things. It’s a lot to do before we present the first installment of our Crisis recaps to close out 2019, so jump right into it… Continue reading

5 Dec

Welcome back, Arrowheads! We’ve been leading Oliver Queen and friends on these missions for The Monitor to fight the coming Crisis all season, and we have finally come to the last leg of this journey before we face the end…of Arrow. And all of this has brought Ollie and friends to the place where it all began for him: Lian Yu! So what will Ollie do, now that he has accepted he won’t survive Crisis? What is Ollie’s plan for breaking this news to his kids? And what is Lyla’s role in all of this? Continue reading

ARROW Season 8×06, “Reset” recap

28 Nov

Welcome back, Arrowheads! Oliver Queen is juggling quite a bit these days, with his grown up kids from the future in the present, preparing for a universe ending event, running errands for the mysterious Monitor, and figuring out a way to fight said Monitor in case it turns out it is the bad guy in this whole thing. Well now he can add one more problem to his list of problems: Diggle’s wife, Lyla, also working with the Monitor! Before Ollie, Diggle, and Evil Laurel can get answers from Lyla on that, they get hit with tranquilizer darts! Now what? Continue reading

ARROW Season 8×05, “Prochnost” recap

20 Nov

Welcome back, Arrowheads! We’re at the halfway point of this final season, and we’ve had plenty of shocks and big events, but probably no event more shocking than our current Team Arrow meeting their hero children from 2040! How and why they are there is still a big mystery (bet The Monitor on this one), but while they are there, this gives Ollie and Diggle an opportunity to see the future through their children, adopted or otherwise. But while Ollie tries to figure out how to fight The Monitor if it turns out he isn’t the good guy he might be, we know The Monitor has agents in Team Arrow’s midst, like Lyla, and maybe another one, if he recruits Evil Laurel into the fold with the promise of bringing back Earth-2! Will Evil Laurel join The Monitor’s cause and betray Ollie and company? And how does Russia fit into Ollie’s quest to get a Monitor fighting weapon? Read on to find out… Continue reading
