Picking up directly following the events in "Empire Day," the Ghost is able to escape the Empire in the latest episode of Star Wars Rebels keeping Ezra's (Taylor Gray) old friend Tseebo, and the vast amount of Imperial knowledge rolling around his head, safe from the Empire. In order to buy time for the others to escape, Kanan (Freddie Prinze Jr.) and Ezra lead The Inquisitor (Jason Isaacs) and his Star Destroyer to Fort Anaxes where Ezra will have his first big breakthrough, and first huge misstep, as a Jedi Padawan.
Supergirl goes to Sky High? New writers K. Perkins and Mike Johnson start Kara's latest adventure with another attempt to live among humans by attempting once again to carve out a normal life. Of course that soon goes to hell when Supergirl is abducted by an exclusive school for super-beings and put through a series of test to determine whether or not she is worthy to join.
Methinks he doth protest too much. In an episode where Walter (Elyes Gabel) scoffs at the need for people to keep souvenirs and remembrances of their loved ones, he and his team head into Bosnia with a covert squad to recover stealth tech (for the U.S. Government) and the remains of the plane's pilot (for the soldier's widow and child). The B-story introduces Camille Guaty as Walter's sister Megan who remains at Scorpion headquarters with Sylvester (Ari Stidham) while the other members of the team risk their lives overseas. The B-story offers a bit more insight into the team for audiences while also demonstrating to both Megan and the show's viewers that Walter is far more nostalgic than he has ever let on.

An investigation into the murder of a government investigator leads Esposito (Jon Huertas) to be taken hostage in a subway car with more than a dozen other hostages by a cyber activist whose motives, including plans to target a group of one-percenters and demand the release of his incarcerated girlfriend, seem more about buying time than getting the demands actually met. Through a hidden surveillance camera the 12th Precinct can observe events on the subway car while Castle (Nathan Fillion), Beckett (Stana Katic), and Ryan (Seamus Dever) race to find answers as to what is really going on.
