The two magical twins are adorable little McGuffins this week, as everyone—including the police—scrambles to find them before the Sirens can feed them to Cade in exchange for freedom.

This was a fun little episode. Which sounds a little cruel since it was all about death closing in on Coulson, Fitz, and Robbie.
This one was a little bit quieter than last week's exceptional episode. But I am still enjoying this end-of-the-series direction toward brutal honesty, come what may, as well as the strong hints that the twenty-year-old murder mystery will finally be solved and resolved.
Here we are. The final installment of our first (but probably not last) four part mega crossover event. How did it fare?
This episode is full of tension, as Julius Caesar marches with his single legion on Rome. It opens with Caesar's niece Atia whipping her slave Castor to vent her frustration, because she assumes that Caesar cannot possibly take Rome, and that she and her children will suffer as a result. Pompey can’t comprehend what Caesar is doing and is preparing his legions with the expectation of crushing his old friend. Even Caesar and Mark Antony have doubts – but they march anyway.
One hundred episodes ago I sat down to write the review for the pilot of Arrow. The series started in the shadow of Smallville which had ended only a year before, which also had a much more charming (at the time) version of Green Arrow that had been recast for reasons that didn't seem to make much sense. This was a show standing alone, without the long mythology of a very long running series to back it up. Could it survive a hundred episodes without that exhaustive DC comics related history? Of course the answer is pretty obvious now, but in retrospect there was no way to know we'd be here: in the middle of a four series crossover.
In an excellent and huge Flash episode, Barry and an extended pool of friends have to find a way to deal with invading aliens when a meteor falls from the sky and crash-lands in Central City, while at the same time helping Wally handle his growing powers.
