CW Superhero Recap: Oliver Fakes His Own Death & Caitlin's Mother Learns Her Secret

Supergirl 

What you need to know about this episode:

Winn and Mon-El showed us what a truly awesome bromance looks like. J'onn wanted to "take the bond" (it sounds dirtier than it is) with Miss Martian, who was voluntarily participating in the underground alien fight club run by Roulette. 


What had us shouting at the TV: 

Miss Martian is actually a white martian. J'onn, she's lying to you! 

Best quote of the episode: 

"Michael Vick made a mistake. People don't care what happens to aliens. But they do care about dogs." — Roulette

What we can't wait to see next week: 

Aww, Alex has feelings for Detective Sawyer! And Mon-El and Kara have an adorable star-crossed lovers thing going on. Just kiss already! 

Also, as we saw in the promo, Mon-El is working at CatCo, and James is going to try to be a vigilante. OMG Mondays just got so much better. 

The Flash 

What you need to know about this episode: 

Caitlin sought help for her manifesting metahuman abilities in the form of her scientist mom, who used Caitlin as her own personal lab experiment. So she's definitely not winning mother of the year any time soon.


What had us shouting at the TV:

Julian tattled on Barry for not being a model employee. Sorry he's too busy running around saving the city to adhere to office rules! And we found out why Julian hates metas—because he's jealous. What is this? High school? 

Hipster Harrison Wells is a fake; he's a fraud. Throw him back through the breach, Cisco! *They totally didn't do this (yet), but we thought it was a good idea.

Best quote of the episode: 

"Don't let Cisco touch my pizza pockets." — Caitlin

What we can't wait to see next week: 

Hey, Caitlin, think it's time to tell the team you're turning into Elsa? Although, Wally's problems may take precedence next week. 

Arrow 

What you need to know about this episode: 

Oliver rescued Renee from digging his own grave, but because Renee is a big fat blabbermouth, Oliver had to FAKE HIS OWN DEATH. Ollie pulled a full-on reincarnation to bring down Church, just in time for Prometheus to come along and kill Church, along with all of the cops transporting him to Iron Heights. 


What had us shouting at the TV: 

Wild Dog, you idiot—you told Church that Oliver was the Green Arrow?

We have so many questions about this sketchy Prometheus guy. Why did he tell Church to stay away from the Green Arrow? And who is the other guy in a mask who Church hired to kill Oliver? 

As for you, Felicity—who would ever pick this random Billy guy over Oliver freaking Queen?! 

Best quote of the episode: 

"You must be the new kids on the block." — Diggle 

"More like the Backstreet Boys. It was funny in my head." — Curtis 

What we can't wait to see next week: 

"He calls himself Prometheus, and he is going to end you." Because that worked out so well for you, Church? 

Legends of Tomorrow 

What you need to know about this episode: 

This week on Legends, the team visited an abberation in 1863, in the height of the Civil War. What they (and we) weren't expecting were Confederate soilders who are also…zombies! We bet that would have made eighth-grade history a lot more interesting. 

Best quote of the episode: 

"Even if Mr. Rory wasn't in a zombified state, I doubt he possesses the intelligence to operate a light switch." — Stein

What we can't wait to see next week: 

The Legends go looking for the Reverse Flash in 1987 and find Damien Darhk in the White House instead?
