Welcome to the DC TV Report for the week ending Saturday May 27th, 2017. As submitted by Edward O'Hare, nickname To Be Determined. There were 6 new episodes this week, including 3 finales and one penultimate episode.
Gotham - Penguin and Riddler worked together to escape the Court of Owls prison and agreed not to kill each other for 6 hours. The Shaman finally trained Bruce to hide his mom’s pearls in a safe and become the perfect weapon. Selena attacked Evil Bruce, revealing the truth to Alfred. Evil Bruce whipped them both and ran. Selina refused to help Alfred find real Bruce. After a dangerous run-in with an ax-handed, bomb-dropping Barnes, Jim and Harvey finally brought in Kathryn, let Alfred beat her up, and watched her get decapitated by Barnes, after he turned the precinct into Fury Road. Barnes was finally taken down until he escaped. Lucius pieced together a crystal owl and discovered it was a map of the Court’s plan. Last Minute Reveal: In the middle of all this everyone failed to notice Lee being consumed with sorrow for Mario’s death and hatred for Jim (probably because all the boys kept her out of the loop). Before they could realize it, Lee stole the Tetch virus and injected herself with it!
Lucifer Penultimate Episode - Charlotte gave money to a guy claiming to have the missing piece of the Flaming Sword of Eden. The guy took the money into a backroom and was murdered. Lucifer maneuvered Chloe to take the case. It was pretty obvious that the killer was Chet, the wannabe rockstar son of a Drug Queen. Lucifer and Charlotte were able to recover what they paid for: the key to a safe-deposit box that contained a Sumerian text. Chet tried killing Charlotte, but a cut caused light to shoot out of Charlotte and roast Chet’s face off. Maz tried to get Luci to help stop Dr. Linda from getting suspended for last episode’s antics. Luci only made it worse when he slipped that he slept with Linda. Last Minute Reveal: After reading the text Amenadiel and Lucifer learned the third piece of the sword was a key given to God’s favorite son. Amenadiel jealously thought it referred to Lucifer until his necklace began to be drawn to the sword!
Supergirl Season 2 Finale - Kara had to knock out Superman to snap him out of a silver Kryptonite trance. J’onn woke up from his coma. Kara challenged Rhea to a one-on-one fight for all the marbles. James defended Cat Grant, who immediately recognized him as the Guardian. Clark and J’onn defended the city with help from M’Gann who swung over from Mars. Kara was forced to activate a weapon that Lena converted to make Earth’s atmosphere toxic to all Daxamites. The fallout disintegrated Rhea and the Daxamites bounced but Mon-El was also forced to leave Earth. During the celebration, Alex proposed to Maggie. Kara felt down, got some encouragement from Cat, and we saw her fly straight into the air at full speed as Mon-El’s ship entered a wormhole. Last Minute Reveal: 35 years ago, on the day Krypton died, another baby was placed in a small spacecraft by a woman who touched the child with a drop of blood and declared that when the baby reached Earth, it would reign!
The Flash Season 3 Finale - Iris was alive! HR used his transmogrifier to take her place. Savitar kidnapped Cisco, forcing him to modify the bazooka into a quantum splicer that would help Savitar avoid being erased from time. Barry tried offering Savitar an olive branch, but it didn’t work out. Instead of saving Savitar, Cisco’s splicer freed Jay Garrick from the speed force. In the final showdown, Barry vibrated Savitar out of his suit, leaving him to be swallowed by the Paradox. Julian offered Caitlin a cure but she decided instead to walk the Earth. Just when it seemed like Iris and Barry could start planning their wedding, the Speed Force reigned a storm that threatened to destroy Central City unless Barry served penance for his transgressions from this season. Last Minute Reveal: Barry said his goodbyes to the team, kissed Iris, and joined the vision of his Mom in the breach. After he disappeared the storm faded away!
iZombie - Harley Johns posted his zombie attack video and received mixed reactions. A Fillmore Graves helicopter exploded and Vivian Stoll was killed. Liv pan-fried the brain of a daredevil who burned to death after riding a bike through a ring of fire wearing a hay costume. Turns out one of his producers sabotaged the suit’s flame retardant after the prankster knocked up his girlfriend. Liv shared the brain with Justin and they had their first kiss, but Justin got in trouble for stealing Super Max from work. Angus came up with a brilliant business strategy to take advantage of the Zombie outbreak. Blaine ruined that by leaving Angus to rot at the bottom of a well with cement shoes, and taking over his businesses. Last Minute Reveal: Liv put on some spray tan and hair dye and tried sneaking into a zombie haters meeting with Ravi, but she had to leave when she saw Harley Johns taking people’s blood pressure at the door!
Arrow Season 5 Finale – 5 years ago, Oliver fought and killed Kovar, was rescued by fisherman, and called his mom. In the present, Oliver enlisted help from Merlyn, Nyssa al-Ghul, and Deathstroke to infiltrate Lian Yu. Felicity, Curtis, Thea, and Samantha were freed. Malcolm sacrificed himself to save Thea from a land mine. Oliver and Deathstroke rescued Diggle, Quentin, Rene, and Dinah. Final matchups included Nyssa vs. Talia and Quentin vs. Black Siren. Felicity and Curtis discovered that the getaway plane had been disabled and the whole island was rigged with C-4 set to blow once Adrian Chase died. Ollie tracked Chase to a fishing boat and once off the coast, Chase revealed William, making Oliver choose between saving his son or all his friends. Ollie shot Chase in the leg and saved William. Last Minute Reveal: Just when it looked as though Chase had finally been defeated, the bastard pulled out a revolver and shot himself, causing the whole island to explode. Is all of Team Arrow dead?!
