This week, the gang tackles geeky topics that should be safe conversation starters around the Thanksgiving table (we'd stick to Star Wars and Star Trek), plus what to expect from The CW's massive, four-show crossover next week.
Cyborg Superman is (the real!) Hank Henshaw. Jeremiah Danvers is alive, and helps Kara and Mon-El escape from Cadmus. Martian Manhunter is turning into a White Martian after his blood transfusion. Oh, and Alex is still working through her feelings for Maggie.
The CW has somehow avoided cramming pretty much the entire Arrow-verse into one glorious scene up until this point, but all that is about to change. Supergirl, meet the Arrow-verse. Arrow-verse, meet Supergirl.
A climate scientist is infected with an alien parasite and starts sucking the life out of people (literally). James Olsen suits up as the Guardian for the first time. Mon-El actually tries to be a hero (it doesn’t end well). And Alex comes out, but is rejected by Maggie.
