The Flash

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: 8 p.m. on The CW

When DC Comics relaunched its universe in 2011 with the New 52, Barry Allen gained a remarkable new power, speed thinking, in Francis Manapul and Brian Buccellato's The Flash comic. Well, that awesome ability is finally being brought to the screen in the second episode of The Flash's seventh season, "The Speed of Thought." In Tuesday's episode, the Artificial Speed Force-powered Barry (Grant Gustin) discovers his super-speed now extends to his brain, which means he can process tons of information and several different outcomes of a given scenario faster than a computer. "We took our hint from the comics," says showrunner Eric Wallace, explaining the show's approach to this skill. "I thought the speed thinking was such a great thing in the current run of the comic books. We're gonna take some of the visuals from the comics. But we're going to take it to extremes and there will be some definite humor involved." —Chancellor Agard

Series Debut
After pitting family against each other in the family drama Greenleaf, creator Craig Wright has moved the action from a megachurch to the courtroom for his next OWN series, Delilah. Maahra Hill (Black-ish, How to Get Away With Murder) stars as the title character, a single mom of two who's trying to balance all of that, her friendships, and faith while also meeting the demands of her career as a highly principled lawyer trying to get justice for those who need it the most. Her life is made even more complicated when a new case pits her against her fellow attorney and best friend Tamara, played by Girlfriends' alum Jill Marie Jones. As Delilah gets closer to the truth, it threatens to destroy not just their friendship but also their lives. —Gerrad Hall
