Ed’s Winner for the Week: Doctors Getting Personal Revelations - All 3 shows featured characters with Doctorates of some kind learning about themselves. The Flash convinced Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh) that he could live a balanced life and still make time to help young inventors. Dr. Gwyn Davies (Matt Ryan) was taught the basics of therapy by the Legends. Finally, Mary (Nicole Kang) had to get infected by a rash and become a rageful plant monster to come to terms with the fact that she felt slighted by team Batwoman.
