Ed’s Winner for the Week: Family - Vin Diesel would be proud this week. Each episode had strong themes centered around family. On Legends, Constantine got all in a tizzy after Zari told her Mom their relationship wasn't serious. Batwoman saw Alice fighting to figure out how to reverse brainwash her sister and Jacob discovering that mourning his 2 lost daughters was leaving Mary in the lurch. Jefferson may have made the ultimate sacrifice for his family on Black Lightning. Barry and Iris kept talking about the elemental forces as if they were their kids on The Flash. Finally, Superman and Lois returned this week and Jordan learned how skirting responsibility can hurt his family, literally.
