The Flash has a literal world of work ahead of it for next week’s “Earth-2” conclusion to live up to the easter egg-filled premiere, and plenty more DC goodness ahead. Not only does a new full-length trailer tease the Arrow crossover of King Shark’s return, but so too do we finally get a peek under the mask of big bad Zoom.

It’s time for another installment of Pointed Commentary, the feature where grizzled Arrow watcher Matt D. Wilson and newcomer Chris Haley dig into the details of Team Arrow cleaning up the filthy, crime-ridden streets of Star City.
In this week’s episode, “Sins of the Father,” the League of Assassins finds itself embroiled in a civil war while Thea’s life hangs in the balance. Also, Felicity has coffee with her dad. The episode was directed by Gordon Verheul and written by Ben Sokolowski and Keto Shimizu.
The Flash’s first trip to Earth-2 promised easter eggs galore, and DC delivered an entire multiverse’s worth! Not only did CBS’ Supergirl make her first official crossover of sorts, but tonight’s trippy Flash also teased our first look at Legends’ Jonah Hex and Connor Hawke, another familiar Flash, and near of the entire damn Justice League!
Just as Legends of Tomorrow seeks to complicate it, The Flash does its best to keep time-travel within certain limits, lest all our brains ker-plode. And after Reverse Flash brought a bit of Season 1 to us, The Flash will take us back to Season 1 with a time-travel tale returning Andy Mientus as the Pied Piper.
The CW’s Legends of Tomorrow has had a rough go of living up to its potential thus far, but all eyes will turn to “Star City 2046” at the end of the month, introducing both a future Oliver Queen and DC’s Connor Hawke. Now, Smoak rises in a new photo from producer Marc Guggenheim, in what might be our first look at the burnt-out Arrow-verse’s future.
Arrow fans have noticed more steadily that any and all Suicide Squad characters shared with the upcoming film have been “taken off the table” through various means, seemingly for good. Manu Bennett’s Deathstroke still draws breath, but may now be “tied up in another DC project” and equally unable to return, according to producer Marc Guggenheim.
There’s no secret that The Flash will finally introduce us to Killer Frost with this coming Tuesday’s “Welcome to Earth-2,” but however much time we get to spend with an alternate-reality version of Caitlin Snow, The CW will make it memorable. Check out some chilly new Killer Frost art from the Tuesday premiere, along with brand-new photos from “Welcome to Earth-2.”
DC TV shows have an astonishing amount of musical theatre talent between them, not the least of which is Rent alum Jesse L. Martin as The Flash’s Joe West. We’ve seen The Flash get musical once or twice before, but “Welcome to Earth-2” will finally give the erstwhile Tom Collins his due, judging by the official photos.
The CW knew what it was doing, to schedule three DC dramas in one week between The Flash, Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow, and February 23 will kick off the most comic-bonkers run yet. Check out new synopses for King Shark’s Flash return, Vixen’s live-action Arrow debut, and a future Oliver’s arrival on Legends of Tomorrow!
It’s time for another installment of Pointed Commentary, the feature where grizzledArrow watcher Matt D. Wilson and newcomer Chris Haley dig into the details of Team Arrow cleaning up the filthy, crime-ridden streets of Star City.
In this week’s episode, “Unchained,” Felicity finds herself in a keyboard battle with a surprising villain, Thea deals with some serious health issues, an old friend returns, and literally four other plots occur. Kevin Fair directed the episode and the script was by our old friend Speed Weed, and Beth Schwartz.
