The CW has released the official synopses for its programs airing on the week of March 5, 2018 -- including new episodes of Riverdale, iZombie, and various shows set in the network's shared DC Universe.
DC's Legends of Tomorrow kicks off the week with "No Country For Old Dads," followed by an iZombie episode titled "Blue Bloody." Tuesday, The Flash will air "Enter Flashtime." Wednesday, Riverdale returns with "Chapter Twenty-Seven: The Hills Have Eyes." Then on Thursday, Roy Harper returns to Arrow in "Doppelganger."
A new episode of Black Lightning, titled "Equinox: The Book of Fate," will air on March 6, but no further information is yet available about that episode.
Equinox is the name of two different villains and a hero in the DC Universe, but none of them are particularly tied to Black Lightning, so it is difficult to know whether they might be introducing another super-powered character, or just using the word to mean something else.
You can check the synopses out below.
