Ed's Winner for the Week: Strange Afflictions - Every show this week seemed to feature at least one character undergoing extreme sickness or physical change. Batwoman's (Javicia Leslie) Kryptonite wound left her stumbling and hallucinating. On Pennyworth, Crowley (Jonjo O'Neill) gave Ripper (Danny Webb) hallucinogens and Col. Salt (Edward Hogg) used Lord Harwood's (Jason Flemyng) chemical dependency and paranoia against him. Jennifer or JJ (Laura Kariuki) as she is now known had to get used to her completely new body on Black Lightning. Iris (Candice Patton) was bedridden on The Flash after being pulled out of the Mirrorverse. Finally on Superman and Lois, Tag Harris (Wern Lee) suffered uncontrollable seizures that sent him to DC's version of the Xavier School.
