Written by Nic

A screenshot of Ryan Wilder as Red Death on the Flash. Ryan is in the foreground and has a gray streak in her hair and is wearing a red batsuit with a broken bat logo. There are two rogues in the background.

After months of rumors and weeks of “is that her?,” “Ryan Wilder” lastly made her debut on The Flash.

Air quotes as a result of… effectively, as a result of causes. If you happen to’re like me and also you haven’t been absolutely up to the mark (LOL) on the goings on over at The Flash, the tl;dr is {that a} group of rogues have been on a tech-stealing spree for his or her boss, a to-be-named benefactor. Group Flash quickly realizes that every of the stolen components can be utilized for a cosmic treadmill.

Barry decides to steal some tech from the Division of Protection, however he’ll want the assistance of his personal group of rogues to take action. As they plan, Chester informs them that the tech is manufactured by Wayne Enterprises and it’s time to name Gotham.

Throughout their tried heist, one in all Barry’s rogues reveals himself to really be working for the mysterious benefactor, and shortly it’s a 4v4 battle. They’re then interrupted by a speedster whose swimsuit has a damaged bat on it. It seems, Chester did come up with Luke in Gotham, and he confirmed that the tech is Wayne-level tech, however far more superior. Oh and likewise, Ryan went out on patrol a couple of weeks in the past and by no means got here again. Now there’s a brand new speedster in a batsuit and Batwoman is lacking? Absolutely it’s a coincidence.

Because the episode ends, the rogue defector threatens to deliver the stolen machine again to The Flash if he doesn’t get a solution to deliver again Frost just like the benefactor promised. Apart from, why would they belief somebody they haven’t seen? His query is answered shortly as a result of the speedster takes off their helmet to disclose a grey hair-streaked Ryan Wilder!! We expect? Is she a variant? Is she from one other Earth? I’ve received a variety of superhero lore in my mind in the mean time so forgive me for crossing the streams. I’m so excited to see Ryan suited up once more. She delivered one line in the whole episode, “I’m vengeance”, and that was sufficient for me to know I’m going to LOVE her as a villain.

Bonus: Candice Patton speaks French on this episode and it’s precisely as scorching as you’re imagining.

The Equalizer 308: “He Ain’t Heavy”

Written by Natalie

The Equalizer: Lorraine Toussaint's Aunt Vi sits on a bench (not pictured) at the art gallery and takes in the work of a young artist (also, not pictured). She's wearing a brown blazer and two necklaces.

The Equalizer returned from its midseason hiatus this week and whereas a lot of the episode targeted on Mel’s lacking brother, we did get to see Aunt Vi enterprise again into the artwork world, nevertheless begrudgingly.

Recall that, as soon as upon a time, Vi was the artwork world’s “it lady” however, when confronted with the work of different artists of that point, she felt she couldn’t evaluate. Now, on the urging of her household and the love that she’s kindled, she’s stepping again into the scene. They’ve satisfied her to enter a contest and right this moment’s they’re slated to seek out out who the winner is. Personally, I’m perplexed they’d go this route — it appears like throwing somebody who doesn’t like water into the deep finish of the pool — however as soon as Trish notes what first prize is (an all-expense paid journey to Paris, an artwork class on the Louvre, plus $5k), I’m like, “signal me up!”

Vi insists that “artwork isn’t about successful or shedding, it’s about affecting individuals” however even she confesses that she needs to win that first prize. However as soon as she’s on the artwork gallery, her confidence begins to waiver. Wanting round on the different artists’ work, Vi’s satisfied that hers pales as compared. She grabs a glass of wine from the open bar and tries to appease her nerves. Trish reminds her that she belongs right here however pivots to an apology as soon as she realizes how anxious the competitors has made Vi. Trish assures Vi that she solely needed others to see what she sees however, if it’s an excessive amount of for Vi, they’ll simply go away.

Vi declines the provide and, as an alternative, takes a couple of minutes for herself. She finds herself subsequent to a younger artist named Journey — one most likely about the identical age as Vi was when she retreated from the artwork scene — who’s having the identical disaster of confidence. Vi admits that she nonetheless grapples with imposter syndrome and, proper now, the one factor that helps is a sip of pinot. Journey factors out her work and Vi instantly acknowledges the expertise behind it. However when neither of them find yourself successful the competition, Vi’s phrases ring hole and the younger artist tosses her work down in frustration.

Vi rushes over to consolation her and factors out the judges aren’t the only arbiters of what’s good artwork. Apart from, Vi notes, artists make artwork for themselves and if different individuals prefer it, that’s only a bonus. She assures Journey that she is an effective artist, she simply must consider it herself. It’s an encouraging second for the younger artist and spurns the director of a neighborhood artwork middle to supply Vi a job as a instructor.

At dwelling, Vi and Trish share the information with Robyn and Dee who, after all, encourage their aunt to take the job. It’s the primary assembly between Robyn and Trish and, actually, it underwhelms a bit. It’s significantly irritating as I think Vi’s new job — which, after all she decides to take — will take her off-screen much more.

The Rookie: Feds - Naomi and Carter stare in disbelief at Simone while listening to the interrogation fo the murder suspect. Simone is completely unbothered. Naomi is wearing a black leather motorcycle jacket and black jeans, with her visitor's pass affixed to her belt. Carter is wearing a blue suit with grey, brown, and white checkered shirt and tie. His FBI badge is featured prominently on his left breast pocket. Simone is wearing plum double breasted blazer with a lighter plum tank underneath. She has her left hand perched on her hip.

The Rookie: Feds is again this week with a belated Valentine’s Day episode. Often, that’d elicit a deep sigh of frustration — as a card-carrying member of Group #LoveIsALie — however Rookie: Feds rolled out my very own private kryptonite to attempt to make me a believer: uniting my TV crushes, Niecy Nash and Juani Feliz, professionally and, presumably, personally on-screen. Sure, please!

Nash’s Simone Clark crosses paths with Feliz’s Naomi Voss whereas attempting to apprehend the identical suspect: Naomi’s a LAPD detective, trying to collar the “Clickbait Casanova” — a fictionalized model of the Tinder Swindler — for having swindled widow out of her life financial savings, whereas Simone’s FBI crew is hoping to discover a new means into the internal circle of a infamous drug seller. The FBI’s case takes precedent and Naomi’s drive handy over her collar to the Feds, nevertheless begrudgingly. However when Casanova alludes his FBI handlers, the crew turns again to Detective Voss to seek out out the place he may need gone. Sadly, by the point they find him, he’s useless: shot via the center (natch) with a harpoon gun.

Throughout the investigation, we uncover that Naomi’s a current transplant to Los Angeles. To date she’s not vibing with the scene in LA however Simone assures Naomi that after she finds her group, she’ll see the town otherwise. Simone recommends a taco truck and, regardless of her insistence that she’s not large on tacos, Naomi and Simone cross paths in line later that night time. It’s an impromptu Valentine’s date!

Over drinks, Naomi admits she and her girlfriend broke up when she transferred to LA to look after her mom. After Simone admits that she’s single too, Naomi asks if she’s ever dated anybody in regulation enforcement. Simone insists that she dates civilians simply to flee the headspace that comes with the job. Naomi’s dismissive: generally, a fellow cop is the one one who can perceive the calls for of what they do. It’s each apparent the place this dialog is heading and but, it’s fully unsexy…an terrible prelude to a possible relationship between characters that appear to be Niecy Nash and Juani Feliz.

The following day, Simone and Carter be a part of Naomi on the LAPD to interrogate the hitman they think of getting murdered the Casanova. The hitman admits to having been at scene however swears Casanova was already useless when he arrived. Simone, Carter, and Naomi piece collectively the clues and understand that the swindler doubtless had an confederate. They concoct a plan and lure the confederate — Casanova’s lawyer — out into the open. They simply subdue her and Naomi takes the lawyer into custody.

Later, Simone makes her means over to Naomi’s precinct and studies that the Casanova’s victims might be eligible for restitution, due to federal asset seizures. The information softens Naomi slightly bit and Simone’s satisfied that perhaps Naomi isn’t a member of Group #LoveIsALife in any case. Naomi suggests they fight a neighborhood Jamaican spot someday quickly and Simone will certainly take her up on that supply quickly. Cue the “Michael Scott/It’s Happening” meme!

 A Million Little Things: Katherine pulls Greta into a kiss. Katherine is on the left, wearing a black and sheer striped blouse. Greta is wearing a black pullover.

Certainly one of my TV pet peeves, following a popping out story, is what’s occurring with Katherine on A Million Little Issues: a personality comes out, will get right into a relationship, and abruptly their total storyline turns into about being homosexual.

Don’t get me improper: popping out is an enormous deal, worthy of compelling, participating arcs, however when it turns into the character’s total id? Possibly it’s acceptable when it’s an adolescent — although, actually, can’t they get Dan Dixon a interest or one thing?! — however Katherine is a grown-ass lady, with a profession she loves (cherished?) and a agency that was barely off the bottom. Everybody else will get storylines that exist independently from their relationship besides Katherine. She’s simply homosexual now. It screams to me, “a straight individual undoubtedly wrote this,” and I simply wish to scream again, “we now have lives exterior {our relationships}!”

However, I digress…again to recapping Katherine’s homosexual adventures.

At dwelling, Greta picks up an outdated household picture album that Theo’s digitizing for his grandmother. She turns to an image of Katherine’s mom in her wedding ceremony costume and Theo interjects, fully unprompted, “you understand, should you two ever wish to get married, I’d be okay with that.” Each girls are caught fully off-guard by the pronouncement however Katherine shortly responds, “been there, performed that, by no means gonna occur,” which is, seemingly, information to her girlfriend.

The couple meets Maggie, Regina, and Sophie at a close-by escape room for one final hurrah earlier than Maggie provides beginning. Because of her son’s love of puzzles, Katherine’s an everyday on the escape room and she or he exchanges pleasantries with Melissa, the attendant. However when it comes time to introduce Greta, Katherine awkwardly avoids doing so. After efficiently escaping the escape room, Greta confronts Katherine in regards to the slight, accusing her of going out of her solution to keep away from telling Melissa who they have been to one another. Katherine insists that she doesn’t want strangers understanding her private enterprise however Greta notes that attendant isn’t a stranger. Lastly, although, it comes again to what Greta’s actually upset about: Katherine nixing the thought of marriage earlier.

“The way in which that you just have been so fast to be like, ‘not gonna occur,’ it makes me marvel if I’m extra critical about our future than you might be,” Greta admits. “I really feel like I’m nonetheless that teenager on the seaside, asking you to Homecoming, and also you’re laughing at me…like the thought of us collectively is a joke.”

Katherine promptly takes Greta over to Melissa and introduces Greta as her girlfriend. Melissa already knew, although…presumably due to Katherine’s new homosexual haircut but additionally as a result of she put Greta down as her emergency contact. Apparently, nothing says dedication like placing your girlfriend down as your emergency contact on an inconsequential type as a result of Greta is assuaged and the pair kiss and make-up.

Fact Be Advised 306: From My Hand the Poisoned Apple”

Written by Natalie

Truth Be Told: Eva sits at a picnic table (unseen) in the lush green park, debating about whether to appear on Poppy's podcast and out herself as a victim of sex trafficking.

After final week’s harrowing takedown of the intercourse social gathering, which introduced Trini dwelling and provided unequivocal proof of the trafficking ring that Poppy and Eva had uncovered, I assumed the dominoes would begin to fall. I assumed that, between the testimony of the women and the Johns trying to escape accountability for his or her actions, we’d transfer nearer to seeing the person behind all of it — mayoral candidate Andrew Finney — implicated. I used to be really apprehensive that the present was transferring too quick; with 5 episodes (together with this one) left within the season, it felt too early to catch the season’s large unhealthy. However this week, the present’s frenetic tempo got here to a sudden halt.

It was a jarring cease…one which pressured the viewers to take a seat within the aftermath of the women’ trauma — Trini coming to grips with the aftermath of her assault or Melanie understanding that she was protected from her pimp’s wrath — and be uncomfortable. However even because the viewers sits in that discomfort, the characters don’t…at the very least not the Oakland Police Division, the media, Emily Mills’ mother and father, or the corporate that hosts Poppy’s podcast. They appear extra bothered that Poppy’s “tip” didn’t flip up the lacking white lady than that it saved 15 black and brown women from being trafficked.

The aforementioned cease signifies that none of Johns, at the very least to date, are coming ahead to implicate any of the “greater ups” within the trafficking ring. Although Eva and Poppy can hyperlink all of them to Finney by way of his donor checklist, that proof is circumstantial at greatest. With the women traumatized and not one of the Johns speaking, Poppy turns to Eva, hoping that she’ll provide the facility of a sufferer’s voice on her podcast.

“You’re robust, good, and an admired drive for good in Oakland,” Poppy insists, to Eva and my dismay. For years, Eva’s managed to maintain the ghosts of her previous at bay however now her protection mechanisms are failing. She’s transferring nearer to the sting — her persistent jitteriness looks like a bodily manifestation of her lack of management — and this podcast interview might simply push her proper over. I get why Poppy recommended it however, nonetheless, it appears merciless.

Eva units out to persuade herself of the utility of sharing her story publicly. Her pal and colleague warns her that some recollections are greatest left within the rearview however emphasizes that no matter Eva decides, the choice must be about her. The college superintendent warns Eva in regards to the time she’s spending with Poppy — the podcast, he says, is making the varsity look unhealthy, not the 2 women who’ve been kidnapped and trafficked from its ranks — and threatens Eva’s job if she doesn’t distance herself. Lastly, Eva admits to Poppy that she simply can’t do it…she will be able to’t danger shedding all the pieces. To her credit score, Poppy assures Eva that it’ll be okay: they’ll get Finney one other means.

However as Poppy famous, it’s the sufferer’s voice that’s the strongest and it’s one of many victims’ voices that will get via to Eva. As she and Poppy take heed to Melanie recount particulars of her time inside the ring — together with a tie to a unclean cop — Eva realizes that she will be able to’t ask the women to talk up and never be prepared to do it herself.
