4.5/5 54% Arrow: Season 4 - Lost in the Flood (TV Episode) My favorite scene was when Donna thought Felicity was pregnant, and she jumped up and down like a schoolgirl, high fiving Curtis. It gets points just for the absurdity of it considering the situation. - TV Fanatic EDIT

3.5/5 85% Arrow: Season 4 - Monument Point (TV Episode) Still, there was a sense of urgency to finding Noah before the bad guys got him. While I thought the fight scene at the cabin was pretty awesome, it seemed rather sloppy for Oliver and Diggle to let Brick go. - TV Fanatic EDIT

3.8/5 61% Gotham: Season 2 - Rise of the Villains: Strike Force (TV Episode) Wasn't it amazing how easily Nygma shifted into his other, bolder self and was finally able to ask Kringle out?
