80% Arrow: Season 7 - Due Process (TV Episode) "Due Process" might have solved the Diaz problem if next episode manages to follow through with same energy as tonight's standout scene. If not, it's hard not to roll my eyes at the whole debacle. - Newsweek EDIT

100% The Flash: Season 5 - Blocked (TV Episode) If Season 5 can make Cicada more interesting than villains of the recent past, and fast, the series might be onto something. In the meantime, more XS would help. - Newsweek EDIT
