    S05.E13: Where Are Your Parents?

    Easily the best episode this season. Every scene with Annalise and Ophelia was fantastic to watch, even though I didn't like the bit where she seemed to ship Anna with Nate though. Nice to see Tegan take one for the team. Telesco let herself be played pretty easy there. Connor's mom really was embarrassing in this one, even if she made a point about no-one talking to their parents. Gabriel will definitely not go past this season and seemingly neither will Emmett if the last scene is anything to go by. Really hope that Bonnie isn't pregnant, 9/10

    S05.E06: 13 Stitches

    I really liked the episode but Lee being another sleeper agent and Barbara being pregnant were both things I saw coming a mile off. Nice going there, Gordon. Nice to see Walker actually appear on screen and I guess next time we see Eduardo, he'll be this show's version of Bane for good measure. Good teaming up with this week with Bruce, Barbara, Lucius and Nygma/Gordon in taking back the GCPD. Loved that Bullock solved Ed's riddle there. I liked the Oswald and Selina scenes even if I found Magpie a little annoying though. At least part of the Jeremiah and his Bruce obsession will be put to bed next week, 8/10

    S05.E12: We Know Everything

    I've got to admit, I'm getting a little bored with this Miller stuff now. Great, his body has been found and the scenes with Bonnie and his mother were nice, but eh, I find myself caring less and less about this. Gabriel's storyline this week was also a bit boring as well. I can't see him being kept on next season. Bit careless that Instagram photo though. Both Tegan and Emmett seem to be into Annalise but will that actually go anywhere positive? 7/10

    S05.E11: Be the Martyr

    I wasn't that keen on this episode. I know it advanced certain things and brought Tegan into the game but it still felt a bit on the filler side of things. Annalise and Emmett - at least that storyline is done for now but he seems to have a thing for her, so that could raise some future problems in the remainder of the season. Even though Laurel had a point to be worried, she was a bit annoying this week as well. Gabe's been arrested, the FBI might actually work with Nate and there was some decent Frank/Bonnie scenes but other than that, it wasn't the best episode we've had, 6/10
  5. So glad it's been renewed but it does raise a few questions? - Will we keep characters like Constantine, Nora and Mona and if we don't, who will be added into the mix to replace them? - How many episodes will it get? - Will it keep it's Monday slot or be moved again?

    They've gotten a fifth season, so we're good for a little bit longer.

    S05.E05: Pena Dura

    An okay introduction to Eduardo but boy, did they not waste time in telling us that him and Secretary Walker were the ones using Edward to blow up Haven. Strange really will work for anyone if the price is right. Edward and Oswald had some great scenes, so did Bruce with Alfred, Selina and Bullock and Barbara had a good moment with Nygma as well. Loved Edward's reaction to finding out that Oswald named his dog after him. Jeremiah and Ecco at the end, hardly a shock tbh, 7/10

    The DC Extended Universe: To Thanagar and Beyond!

    Who didn't see this coming? I liked Affleck in the role but I think Matt Reeves is completely right to break away from Snyder's take on the role and guaranteed The Batman will have fuck all to do with what Snyder was doing/intended to do with the character and that's for the best really. Don't really care about The Suicide Squad just yet but will do when we get more detailed on the story.

    S05.E10: Don't Go Dark on Me

    Much better focus this week on the main plots. If Miller genuinely was a good guy, then both Bonnie and Nate really are screwed. The mental gymnastics both of them are doing right now is something else. Loved how quickly Michaela and Laurel worked out that Asher knew about Miller's death as well. Oliver, cheer up man. You're meant to be the hopeful one of the group. Connor's words to Christophe about Wes were sweet even if he was never this nice to the latter when he was alive. Gabriel and Miller working together doesn't seem that shocking. Does the show plan to go there with either Tegan/Michaela or Tegan/Annalise? Found Emmett teasing Tegan about Annalise a little amusing too. Annalise and Eve really do have the best chemistry. No wonder Frank even thinks they're endgame. 8/10

    S05.E04: Ruin

    Nice return of Zsasz, loved his deadpan snarking here and it was obvious that he was going to be the thing that would break Gordon and Oswald's little truce. Oswald was more interested in getting even with Zsasz than actually finding the Haven bomber. Edward being the bomber wasn't that shocking but the reveal was done well enough and I did like his team up with Lucius in this one. Jim and Barbara pairing up, that's gonna result in a certain someone being conceived, right? No way did Selina actually succeed in killing Jeremiah this week. Nice shades of Joker/Harley with Jeremiah/Ecco in their brief scenes this episode too, 7/10

    S05.E09: He Betrayed Us Both

    Oliver's comment about Gabriel made me shudder a little until he himself realised that it was the wrong thing to say. That said though, Gabriel is obviously a problem in the making as he seems to want more than getting to know about his father. I enjoyed his scenes with Annalise though and the flashbacks, while too much of them were mostly good as well. Bonnie and Frank had some great scenes this week as did Connor snarking at Asher as well. Eve's return is so welcomed, hope she's around for the rest of the season, 8/10

    Thank frack I have Gotham because the wait otherwise for the second half of Season 4 would be worse than it is. I can't wait to see how this Constantine/Neron storyline will play out.

    S05.E03: Penguin, Our Hero

    I'm still not too sure if Ecco really is meant to be this show's Harley or a precursor to the real deal but at least we got some more of the character and the scenes she had with Selina were the high point of the episode. It didn't take long for Bruce to see that Selina has become more attuned with her dark side and while the latter won't succeed in taking out Jeremiah, I am rooting for her nonetheless. The Gordon and Oswald scenes were nothing new but only the latter could solve a problem he created in the first place. I did like the reunion with Oswald and his dog though. Nice scene with Barbara and Bullock mulling over the old days. Haven getting blown up wasn't that shocking but I guess they could've gotten another episode out of it before going nuclear on the place, 8/10

    S05.E02: Trespassers

    Everything concerning Bruce, Ivy and Selina was the highlight of this episode. I loved Ivy's costume, very comic book accurate and I do want to see more of her before the show ends for good. Despite her attitude, it's nice that Ivy does care enough to help Selina and seeing the latter with the cat eyes after she was cured was an interesting move. Will they go down the metahuman route with Selina? The Gordon/Bullock/Barbara helping the kids part and those gangs felt like filler, though I did like the catch up on Mother and Orphan as well. Edward's side adventure with the biker was amusing enough. Did miss Oswald this week and can we catch up with Leslie already? 7/10

    S05.E01: Year Zero

    Great premiere episode, they're really going for it with the No Man's Land arc and it's pretty interesting to see the city unfold into chaos as a result. Tabitha's death was rushed but with the limited amount of episodes, it makes sense to bring that saga to a close. Barbara is going to fail in her revenge arc, so the show needs to give her something else to do. Oswald eating well, serving "overcooked" meat to his adorable dog while his workers are starving. And he wonders why people turn on him so often. Come on, Ozzie, get a clue, man. Edward's storyline is interesting enough but where did Leslie go. What did Hugo do to the both of them? I'm assuming the witch is Ivy given that we've seen her in the trailer and she's healed Selina in the past. The Bruce and Selina scenes were a bit tough to watch. Jaime Murray's unseen character - friend or foe for Gordon? Oh and hi, Ecco. Good to see you're still alive. Overall, a pretty great opening episode, 8/10
