The CW have released a new batch of episode descriptions for their third week of superhero TV. We’re introduced to the Justice Society of America, plus see who Cody Rhodes is playing on Arrow. It’s hard to top the introduction of the JSA, especially when that’s going to be a key part of Legends of Tomorrow this season.
Starting with the Legends, their second episode is titled, “Justice Society of America”. As you can tell from the description, they’re about to get a crash course in the JSA:
TEAM WORK — The Legends travel to Nazi-occupied Paris, but find themselves surrounded by the Justice Society of America (AKA JSA.) The Legends discover a time aberration that threatens the JSA, but the JSA wants nothing to do with them or their help. Nevertheless, the Legends force their way into the JSA’s mission to intercept and seize a mysterious package. Nate (Nick Zano) is desperate to prove that he should be part of the team, but he has a secret that he shares with his grandfather Commander Steel (Matthew MacCaull) that might make it difficult. Ray (Brandon Routh) is so focused on impressing the JSA, he puts himself and Vixen (Maisie Richardson-Sellers) in danger. Meanwhile, Stein (Victor Garber) has stepped in as the leader with Rip (Arthur Darvill) gone, but when decisions aren’t being made Sara (Caity Lotz) seems to be the one calling the shots. Dominic Purcell and Franz Drameh also star. Michael Grossman directed the episode written by Chris Fedak & Sarah Nicole Jones.
Supergirl’s open episode seems light and happy, but things are about to change. Once a new enemy appears, seemingly Metallo, Superman is far from pleased with the DEO:
IAN GOMEZ STARS AS SNAPPER CARR — CADMUS attacks National City with a kryptonite powered villain who ends up seriously hurting Supergirl (Melissa Benoist). Superman (guest star Tyler Hoechlin) blames Hank (David Harewood) because the kryptonite was stolen from the DEO. Meanwhile, Kara’s first day at her new job doesn’t go as planned after she meets her new boss, Snapper Carr (guest star Ian Gomez). Glen Winter directed the episode written by Robert Rovner & Caitlin Parrish.
The Flash gets a few returning faces in episode 3, with Harrison Wells and Jessie Quick coming back to Earth-1. This doesn’t seem linked to Flashpoint, but maybe they’re telling that secret. We’re getting full blown Jessie Quick here, now she’s got speedster powers too:
EARTH-2 WELLS AND JESSE RETURN TO CENTRAL CITY — Barry (Grant Gustin) and Team Flash are thrilled to reunite with Earth-2 Wells (Tom Cavanagh) and Jesse (guest star Violett Beane). Wells confides to Barry and Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) that Jesse has all the powers of a speedster and has been saving people on his Earth. He is concerned about her safety and wants them to talk her out of using her powers. Meanwhile, Magenta, (guest star Joey King) a new meta who can control metal, terrorizes the city. Armen V. Kevorkian directed the episode written by Judalina Neira & David Kob.
Finally, Stephen Amell’s rivalry with Cody Rhodes goes up a notch this week. The Green Arrow needs to step in when one of his new charges steps out of line. Who thought a character named Wild Dog could possibly be uncooperative? At least this sounds like the grounded approach we’ve been asking for:
WWE STAR CODY RHODES BRINGS THE SMACKDOWN TO STAR CITY — Now that Oliver (Stephen Amell) has his new team, they are ready to hit the streets but Oliver doesn’t feel they are ready. Headstrong Wild Dog (guest star Rick Gonzalez) defies the Green Arrow’s orders and sets out on his own after a new drug dealer, Garret Runnels (guest star Cody Rhodes), who is terrorizing Star City. Runnels proves more powerful than Wild Dog and it is up to the Green Arrow to go head to head with Runnels to save his teammate. Gregory Smith directed the episode written by Ben Sokolowski & Emilio Ortega Aldrich
Supergirl episode 2 airs October 17, followed by new episodes for all of The CW’s DC dramas.
