Welcome to the DC TV Report for the week ending Saturday November 13th, 2021. I'm here to bring you recaps, news and commentary for all live-action television shows based on DC Comics. There were 5 new episodes this week including 2 finales.
Supergirl - Series Finale Part 1 "The Last Gauntlet" 1) Kara and the Tower had differing opinions on how to respond to Lex Luthor's ransom demands for Esme. 2) While Nxly tried retrieving the Love Totem from Esme, Lillian Luthor dropped in to warn that Lex was bad news. Last Minute Reveal: After listening to Orlando tell a group of bystanders to keep hope, Kara got an idea about how to prevent Lex and Nxly from leeching all of the city's virtue!

Last Minute Reveal: The time machine worked but instead of landing in 2021 Tahiti, the Legends found themselves in a forest with no sign of civilization in sight!
- S03E05 "A Lesson from Professor Pyg" 1) Ryan brought Sophie along to a dinner party and Jada Jet's mansion where the chef turned out to be Professor Pyg. 2) Alice was pulled into consulting on a Catwoman copycat murder case and discovered Renee Montoya's secret connection to Poison Ivy. 3) The rash Mary picked up in the park made her agitated and aggressively eco-conscious. Last Minute Reveal: Jada admitted to Ryan that her brother Marquis was a homicidal sociopath and asked for her help!
Doom Patrol - Season 3 Finale "Amends Patrol" 1) Rita was so dead set on getting revenge against Madame Rouge that she did not care that no one on the team had her back. 2) Madame Rouge put Cliff's brain in control of a 30-foot tall robot. 3) Vic tried to help Larry decide to merge with the injured radioactive grubworm. 4) Jane found the Underground caved in and had to convince Dr. Harrison and the others to leave the Fog and return to Kay's subconscious. Last Minute Reveal: The emboldened Doom Patrol piled into Cliff's head and latched onto Rita's time machine as it drilled it's way to a mission to stop a monster shaped like a nutsack in the Suez Canal!
Ed’s Winner for the Week: Cat Grant (Calista Flockhart) - Supergirl ended strong this week and the high note by far had to be the surprise appearance of Cat Grant. Her brief moments, which were shot seperate from the rest of production (Flockhart left the series because she did not want to move from LA to Vancouver), were just delightful and reminded me of the hole left by her absence. Even though I was alone watching this, I cheered at the top of my lungs when she showed up.
