Supergirl #14

I'm not sure why every version of Supergirl seems to go through a storyline where her powers go on the fritz at some point, but that's the case in Supergirl #14 where Kara travels to China to seek help from Super-Man and I-Ching.

SEAL Team - Ghosts of Christmas Future

Jason Hayes (David Boreanaz) and his team head to Estonia to grab a Serbian war criminal turned weapon supplier who Mandy's (Jessica Paré) mentor (Brian Howe) has been after most of his career. The already complicated snatch-and-grab is made even harder when one of the target's bodyguards turns out to know Jason, his team, and their methods. Things don't get any easier for Mandy when she discovers her old friend is so invested in the operation he has played fast and loose with the facts to get her team to put themselves in a dangerous position. The CIA intrigue is a nice twist while once again the action in the field, the planning, and necessary improvisation, all play to the show's strengths.

Legends of Tomorrow - Freakshow

Trying to prove their worth, and using a list of time anachronisms stolen from Rip Hunter's (Arthur Darvill) new organization, the Legends head back to a circus in 1870 where they turn a low-level disturbance into something far more dangerous before eventually saving time once more. Given that the threat involves a sabertooth tiger out of its natural element, the group also decides to call on the help of Vixen (Maisie Richardson-Sellers) whose reasons for returning to the past are finally explained. Most of the humor is at the expense of our main characters, as they make a situation ten times worse before making things better, but that seems to be the theme of the show's Third Season which I'm happy enough to see continue (and I still think Booster Gold would fit in perfectly as a Legend).
