Borrowing Problems From The Future, the 10th episode of The Flash season three, was written by Grainne Godfree and David Kob and directed by Millicent Shelton.
Barry has been having nightmares about Iris’s murder. Jared Morillo attempts a robbery, but is confronted by Barry, who recalls a news report during his visit in the future when the latter captures the former. The distraction allows Morillo to overpower Barry and escape. H.R. launches the museum, but no one attends it. In a second confrontation, Wally intervenes and captures Morillo, gaining praise by everyone except Barry. He eventually reveals the future he saw to everyone but Joe. The team decides to change the course of other events in order to prevent Iris’s death. Using Cisco, Barry accesses the future memory, in which the news reveal that the S.T.A.R. Labs museum will close and Caitlin will become Killer Frost. Morillo escapes, and Barry decides to change the first event by letting Wally capture him. Cisco relaunches the museum, starting with an exhibition for elementary school students. Julian is persuaded by Caitlin to join the team. A mysterious woman from another Earth arrives searching for H.R.
An overall solid episode, couple of slow points towards the end but overall, it’s a competently made episode.
Who Are You? is the 10th episode of Arrow season five, written by Ben Sokolowski & Brian Ford Sullivan and directed by Gregory Smith.
Laurel states that Sara revived her after her murder. Oliver welcomes her into the team; but Felicity soon realizes that she is Laurel’s doppelganger from Earth-2, having broken out of S.T.A.R. Labs by Claybourne’s help. Laurel escapes and calls Oliver for an arrangement near the Black Canary statue. Though he remains optimistic towards Laurel, Felicity orders the others to attack Laurel, leading to the destruction of the statue, though she is captured. Learning about Paul, Rene convinces Curtis to move on and focus on his capabilities, not his flaws. Felicity lures Laurel into escaping after placing a tracker on her. The team confronts her and Claybourne in a warehouse, where Oliver fails to dissuade Laurel from accepting her evil side. Curtis disables her powers using a device he made. Though Claybourne escapes, Laurel is captured; and Oliver places her in an A.R.G.U.S. facility, hoping to change her one day. Meanwhile, Oliver convinces Adrian to represent John. The latter’s corrupt superior, General Walker, arrives to assume his custody; but Adrian manages to bring John to his own jurisdiction. In flashbacks, Gregor, the Bratva traitor, attempts to force Oliver’s obedience; but the latter is rescued by a female archer named Talia.
So, yeah, we’re bringing Talia Al Guhl into the Arrowverse now, does that mean some point down the line we’ll see more characters from Gotham showing up including a certain superhero? Maybe?
Regardless, I did appreciate a lot of what they did, there was a lot of good story, good character development, and good overall material to work with.
