What to Watch This Week: Arrow, Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, and Vixen All Crossover with Each Other
Sadly, all great (or formerly great) things must come to an end, and The X-Files miniseries is signing off this week (for now). But in happier news, the Flarrow universe is playing musical characters, as the Diggles are heading to Central City (along with King Shark), Vixen is headed to Arrow, and Oliver Queen is heading to Legends of Tomorrow. Monday, February 22nd The X-Files finale - 8pm on Fox Supergirl - 8:30pm on CBS
The finale of the X-Files miniseries (promoted as a season finale, not a series finale, incidentially), is a mythology episode that continues the story from the lackluster premiere. That's the bad news. But there's good news too, as we'll get to see the Cigarette Smoking Man, Skinner, Monica Reyes, Joel McHale's Tad O'Malley, and possibly get some answers about Scully's mysterious alien DNA.

Supergirl is going all out with the DC villains recently, and tonight's episode features the genuinely creepy Silver Banshee, a metahuman with superstrength, agility, speed, and endurance.
