arrow-shifting-alliances

While the previous episode of Arrow was focused primarily on Ricardo Diaz (Kirk Acevedo), “Shifting Allegiances” splits the focus across multiple stories. We get the crime boss attempting to force Mayor Lance (Paul Blackthorne) into doing him a favor, Diggle (David Ramsey) and A.R.G.U.S. attempting follow Quadrant leads back to Diaz, Rene (Rick Gonzalez) returning to the field and working with Dinah (Juliana Harkavy) and Curtis (Echo Kellum) to attack Diaz’s drug operation, and Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) attempting to convince friend-turned-enemy Anitoly (David Nykl) to turn on Diaz. Anitoly refuses Oliver’s offer, but in delivering him to Diaz he gives the hero perhaps his chance to save the city in a one-on-one fight between the Arrow and the crime lord (who, unfortunately for Oliver, isn’t above cheating to win a fight).

tmnt-yojimbo

The first of three episodes to guest-star Miyamoto Usagi (Yuki Matsuzaki), and the only one written by rabbit ronin creator Stan Sakai, “Yojimbo” finds the Turtles transported to an anthropomorphic dimension and hypnotized by the evil Jei (Keone Young) to kill the wandering samurai and capture the young child who is under the ronin’s protection. How many ninja turtles does it take to defeat one rabbit ronin? More than four. In their confrontation, Usagi is able to knock some sense back into the turtles who agree to travel with Usagi to deliver young Kintaro (Evan Kishiyama) to the Temple of the Sky Buddha.

the-blacklist-ian-garvey-conclusion-pic1

“Ian Garvey: Conclusion” likely wraps up the the Ian Garvey (Jonny Coyne) saga in a fun episode in which no character gets exactly what they want. Filled with betrayal and twists, and the amusing return of Raleigh Sinclair (John Noble), this one is a hell of a lot of fun. With the FBI unable to take Garvey down by legal means, and wanting to keep an important secret from Elizabeth (Megan Boone), Reddington (James Spader) chooses to use a bit of misdirection by framing Garvey for the murder of the corrupt cop’s drug-dealer meal-ticket. Neither Liz, nor the audience, learn the importance of the duffel bag full of bones, but due to Garvey’s shooting, Red gets no closer to regaining his property either.

legion-chapter-12

“Chapter 12” is the first episode of Legion‘s Second Season that isn’t framed in narration from an unseen Jon Hamm toying with larger themes and how they relate to David (Dan Stevens) and the Shadow King (Navid Negahban). Instead, nearly the entire episode takes place inside the mind of Syd (Rachel Keller) as David tries to navigate the loop of her life and fails repeatedly to find the right answer. With the focus on Syd, both we and David learn far more about the complicated mind of the woman who has won our protagonist’s heart.
