Barring a few new episodes of Legends of Tomorrow, us fans of the Arrowverse have had to endure another brief hiatus due to the 2018 Winter Olympics. Fortunately, though, that’ll come to a close next week and we can once again enjoy our favorite superhero shows.
Today, however, we’re going to discuss what’s to come a few weeks down the line, specifically the week of March 12. And if the synopses offered today are any indication of what to expect, well, then we should be in for one hell of a ride.
Let’s start with Legends, shall we?
On Monday, March 12, it appears as though the Waverider crew will finally close in on the final Totem in “Amazing Grace,” thus making the current arc feel somewhat like a video game. (Come on, don’t tell me this scavenger hunt didn’t make you think the same thing.) In this instance, it’s the Death Totem, which sounds every bit as ominous as a Black Lantern ring:
IT’S ALL ABOUT THE MUSIC – When the Legends learn that a mysterious tragedy destroyed Memphis in 1954, thus eradicating the birthplace of rock and roll, they embark on their most important mission – to save music. Nate (Nick Zano) is excited to show Amaya why music is important to him and he is surprised it leads to a rock legend as well as the sixth and final totem, the Death Totem.
Meanwhile, Zari (Tala Ashe) helps their newest member try to adjust to the team. Caity Lotz, Brandon Routh, Dominc Purcell, Maise Richardson-Sellers and Keiynan Lonsdale also stars. David Geddes directed the episode written by Matthew Maala & Tyrone B. Carter (#314). Original airdate 3/12/2018.
Then on Tuesday, March 13, Iris West suits up as a superhero on The Flash in a creative move that’s already met its share of detractors on social media. But regardless of that, we’re still going to tune in for “Run, Iris, Run,” in order to see what happens.
IRIS SUITS UP – Team Flash confront a new bus meta, Matthew AKA Melting Pot (guest star Leonardo Nam), who has the ability to swap people’s DNA. During a battle with Team Flash, Matthew accidentally takes Barry’s (Grant Gustin) speed away and gives it to Iris (Candice Patton). Now, with a new threat unleashed on Central City, Barry must act as the team leader while Iris takes on the mantle of superhero speedster in order to defeat their new foe. Harry Jierjian directed the episode written by Eric Wallace (#416).
MORE FROM THE WEB
And while not technically part of the Arrowverse (at least for now), we’re sure that many of you will stick around later that night for Black Lightning. In “Revelations,” expect for Jefferson Pierce to attempt to clear the name of his alter ego, hinting that perhaps Tobias Whale will succeed in turning the police and public against our hero very shortly.
TRAINING DAY – Black Lightning (Cress Williams) works with Anissa (Nafessa Willaims) to help find information to clear Black Lightning’s name. Jennifer (China Anne McClain) begins interning for Lynn (Christine Adams). Meanwhile, Gambi (James Remar) finds himself in a precarious situation. Marvin Jones III and Damon Gupton also star. The episode was written by Jan Nash and directed by Tanya Hamilton (#108). Original airdate 3/13/2018.
As you may have noticed, no synopsis has been given for an episode of Arrow for that week, so we can only hope that it’s not going on hiatus again after coming back for only two episodes. Either way, we’ll keep you posted on it and other Arrowverse shows as usual.
