The Flash - Episode 7.06 -The One With The Nineties
Supergirl - Episode 6.02 - A Few Good Women
Supergirl got to spend time with her dad, and the rest of her team got to spend time trying to get her out of the Phantom Zone. It was all pretty standard, but as usual, we had the Luthors to elevate this episode.
It has been mentioned before, but Jon Cryer is the best thing in the Arrowverse. His portrayal of Lex Luthor is my favorite, and he is a gift to this corner of the DC Universe. His way of finagling out of sentencing was brilliant. I would watch a Lex Luthor show with Cryer, where he just schemes against other Arrowverse heroes.
This is the last season of the show and there are character trajectories that kind of set up their endgame. They can change, but at least they can be brave with some choice as its the last season.
They made way more progress at getting Supergirl out of the Phantom Zone than I thought they were going to. So she probably won't be in there very much longer. But the question remains - after that - now what?
