Hawaii Five-0 can sometimes get a bit carried away with stories that strain the show’s credibility to (and sometimes past) all reasonable limits, as with the show’s Eight Season finale. When a Russian nuclear submarine shows up on the beaches of Hawaii, Five-0 goes on the search for a missing seaman who leaves a trail of bodies in his wake. What starts out as a search for a single Russian grows with the discovery of a sleeper cell of Russian spies all over the island. Eventually you get McGarrett (Alex O’Loughlin) boarding the nuclear sub, the entire Five-0 team shooting up a Russian embassy, the team forcibly taking a Russian spy from Russian soil (by blackmailing local officials), and somehow none of this causes an international incident.

The war between I.O. and Skywatch heats up as Jacklyn King gets a close look at Henry Bendix‘s quick and brutal reprisal for I.O. hacking into Skywatch. This, of course, will lead to an I.O. retaliation as well. Elsewhere Jenny Mei Sparks and Shen Li-Min go recruiting as the comic’s version of the Authority may be finally taking shape. By the looks of things, the world will need them sooner rather than later.

Arrow mixes things up a bit in the Sixth Season finale with Oliver (Stephen Amell) leading Team Arrow into battle with the FBI against Diaz (Kirk Acevedo). Although Diaz’s power is broken at the end of the season, the finale doesn’t wrap up the villain’s arc, allowing the crimelord to return and plague Star City next season. As for Oliver, Arrow writers follow The Flash‘s lead by sending the hero to prison (although Oliver is actually guilty of the crimes he’s imprisoned for). That also seems to mean the return of the rest of Team Arrow (which I have very mixed feelings about) to protect the city in the hero’s absence (although I doubt it will last more than a couple of episodes).

The Rob Liefeld joke was a nice touch. Following the success of 2016’s Deadpool, most of the core cast (including Morena Baccarin, T.J. Miller, Brianna Hildebrand, and Leslie Uggams) return for the sequel featuring more X-Men, more violence, and more irreverent humor from the Merc with a Mouth. Deadpool 2 is quite a bit of fun, although its more complicated plot and larger cast of characters doesn’t always serve the film’s best interests.
