Full spoilers ahead: Let’s talk about Marvel’s ‘The Defenders’

To quote Beyonc, "Of course sometimes shit goes down when it's a billion dollars on an elevator." As of this weekend, TV’s answer to The Avengers is officially live: The Defenders hit Netflix with eight episodes, finally fulfilling the promise made by the Marvel deal back in 2013. And the show’s jam-packed with developments we’ve been waiting for. Iron Fist and Luke Cage, together at last! Misty Knight and Colleen Wing, meeting for the very first time! The Hand storyline developed in Daredevil and Iron Fist comes to fruition, and even the literal plot hole of Daredevil Season 2 gets filled up. So why does it all feel so perfunctory? The Defenders is fine. Just fine. It is really cool seeing the whole gang together, though. Image: Netflix To be clear, The Defenders isn’t awful. It’s fine. Just fine! It does what it’s supposed to, which is bring all four heroes together, and those interactions make up the best parts of the show. It’s genuinely thrilling to see Matt introduce himself as Jessica’s lawyer, or Luke and Danny go mano-a-mano in an alleyway. Each main character gets an opportunity to show off their talents and get in some quips. The

Death is officially meaningless on TV: Katie Cassidy’s coming back to ‘Arrow’ permanently

Rumors of her death have been greatly exaggerated. Image: Dean Buscher/The CW Well, this is unexpected. Katie Cassidy will be returning to Arrow as a series regular in Season 6 despite the fact that her character, Laurel Lance (aka Black Canary), was killed off in Season 4. In the world of superhero shows, anything is possible and Laurel’s sister, Sara (Caity Lotz) has already proven that you can’t keep a good vigilante down, having died and been resurrected on Arrow before moving over to spinoff series DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. But Cassidy won’t be reviving the Laurel Lance that fans knew and loved for the first four seasons of Arrow she’ll be playing the Earth-2 doppelgnger version of Laurel, aka Black Siren, a metahuman criminal who was brought over to Earth-1 by the villainous speedster known as Zoom in The Flash Season 2.

This week’s ‘Walking Dead’ was a bloody mess, but things might be looking up

Image: AMC This recap contains spoilers for The Walking Dead Season 7, episode 13, titled “Bury Me Here.” Welp, that was a lot. This episode opens with some of the residents of the Kingdom loading a single melon onto a truck, an image which is incredibly painful once we learn its meaning. After what seems like a rough night of nightmares, Carol can’t stand her self-imposed solitude any longer. SEE ALSO: Live interview with ‘Walking Dead’ star has hilariously unorthodox ending She heads to the Kingdom to make sure that Daryl was letting the truth in last week’s episode, and everyone back in Alexandria is alright. (Side note: No, he wasn’t and no, they are not.) She confronts Morgan, but it’s clear that she already knows something is wrong. Morgan refuses to tell her what the deal is mostly because he’s Morgan and nothing is easy with him. He does, however, offer to bring her to Alexandria to find out what’s happened, but because she’s Carol, she refuses.
