This week brings a whole lot of new stuff, but arguably the biggest highlight is the musical crossover between The Flash and Supergirl. But that's not all!

We also have a new episode of Supergirl to kick off the week, which introduces Teri Hatcher and Kevin Sorbo as Mon-El's parents, plus the space politics between Earth and Mars heat up on The Expanse. FX's twisted mystery Legion also goes a little deeper into the state of reality, and the Alexandrians make a lengthy journey on The Walking Dead.

Here's our full rundown. Check it out and be sure to set your DVR accordingly.

Highlights

Supergirl (The CW), Monday 8PM - "Star-Crossed"

A new villain comes to National City, putting Supergirl on high alert; at the same time, she faces an attack by the Music Meister. Meanwhile, Winn's girlfriend, Lyra, gets Winn in trouble with the law; and Maggie attempts to help Winn, but old loyalties get in the way.

The Flash (The CW), Tuesday 8PM - "Duet"

A crossover episode with Supergirl concludes. Barry and his team are surprised when Mon-El and Hank Henshaw arrive on their Earth carrying a comatose Supergirl who was whammied by the Music Meister.

Kara and Barry wake up without their powers in an alternate reality where life is like a musical and the only way to escape is by following the script.

Goodbye, Neelix

The season seven episode "Homestead" saw the beginning of the end for Voyager as the crew and loyal viewers had to say goodbye to Neelix. Tim Russ told Blastr he "thought Neelix's leaving the ship was very emotional."

"We all kind of felt that when we shot it because he would also be leaving the show," Russ said.

The fact that Tuvok finally dances for Neelix as a sendoff also makes this one of the best moments of the series.

 

Legion (FX), Wednesday 10PM - "Chapter 7"

David tries to find a way out of his predicament.

Double Doctors

When a chance to contact Starfleet in the Alpha Quadrant arises, the Doctor is sent to the USS Prometheus to discover it has actually been taken over by the Romulans. In "Message in a Bottle" from season four, the Doctor needs to enlist the help of the ship's newer Emergency Medical Hologram Mark II, played by Andy Dick. The two work together with hilarious results, such as this moment when the Mark II has no idea how to enter a Jeffries tube. It shows just how much the Doctor has been able to grow during his time on Voyager.

 

The Expanse (Syfy), Wednesday 10PM - "The Weeping Somnambulist"

Bobbie becomes a pawn in a political struggle between Earth and Mars.

The End of Tuvix

The season two episode "Tuvix" builds to a major ethical decision: When two crew members are merged into one to form an individual being, would you destroy that being to bring them back? The difficult choice was one that stood out to Russ.

"I thought Janeway's decision to destroy Tuvix in order to get Tuvok and Neelix back, and the moment just after it happens, was very powerful and emotional," Russ told Blastr.

 

The Walking Dead (AMC), Sunday 9PM - "Something They Need"

A group of Alexandrians embark on a journey to a distant community; and one group member must make a heartbreaking decision.

Phoning Home

The Doctor may have previously been able to contact Starfleet on behalf of Voyager, but this was the moment that Janeway and the rest of the crew finally had direct communication with home. The emotions on the crew's faces as they share these few moments talking to Starfleet in the season six episode "Pathfinder" are incredibly moving and it seems to give them all even more hope that they will one day reach home.

 

HUMANS (AMC), Monday 10PM - "Episode 7; Episode 8"

In the Season 2 finale, Mattie reveals the synths' agenda and seeks out Max's help; Karen makes a life-altering decision; and Mia and Hester break into the Silo. Then, Niska and Astrid prepare to return to Berlin; and Joe leaves Laura shell-shocked.

While on a mission to repair a turbine at a wind farm, the team must race to save Paige and Happy before the cable holding the gondola they are in snaps and sends them plummeting to the ground.

Janeway crashes Voyager

If you needed even more proof that Captain Janeway is one hell of a kick-ass leader, than this is it. In season four's "Year of Hell: Part 2," she is determined to destroy the ship that has been messing with their timeline. A disheveled Janeway guiding the Voyager to crash into the other ship with a determined "Time's up!" is probably one of the best moments in any Star Trek franchise.

"I am Borg."

The episode "Bride of Chaotica!" from season five is hilarious all around, but this scene, in particular, is Voyager humor at its best. Plus, it just makes us love Seven of Nine's attitude even more! Any opposition, even on the holodeck, won't deter her.

 

DC's Legends of Tomorrow (The CW), Tuesday 9PM - "Fellowship of the Spear"

The Legends devise a plan to retrieve the last remaining fragments of the Spear of Destiny from the Legion of Doom when they find themselves in France at the height of World War I and faced with the knowledge that they must destroy the mystical object. They enlist the help of a soldier named John Ronald Reuel Tolkin and learn that the Spear is leading them into the heart of the war. Meanwhile, the team must all resist the temptation of the Spear; and a former teammate returns.

Unrequited Love

The Doctor may be a hologram, but he has some of the most emotional moments on the show. This one does a great job of showing how he has become more human over the years. In "Someone to Watch Over Me" in season five, the Doctor and Seven of Nine explore romance and dating, and the Doctor develops feelings for the former Borg. At the end of the episode, Seven of Nine realizes there is no one on board she would pursue a romance with and the Doctor doesn't confess his own feelings. He starts playing this song, making more than one viewer tear up, we're sure!

 

The Americans (FX), Tuesday 10PM - "The Midges"

Philip and Elizabeth tell Paige more about the family business, but pressing new questions arise when an operation takes a ghastly and unexpected turn. Elsewhere: a sensitive package jeopardizes Oleg's life back home.

The Borg's Worst Enemy

The Borg are probably Star Trek's most fearsome foes, but in the season 3 episode "Scorpion: Part 1" we meet a new alien even the Borg fear: Species 8472. Given they're responsible for defeating the Borg several times, the moment when the Voyager crew first comes face-to-face with this new species is one we won't soon forget!

Arrow (The CW), Wednesday 8PM - "Kapiushon"

Prometheus goes to great lengths to break Oliver. Meanwhile, in the flashbacks, Anatoly becomes worried about Oliver's increasingly violent tendencies, which come to a head in a brutal confrontation.

"Coffee, Black."

This isn't just one moment, but many scattered throughout the series. Captain Janeway's love for black coffee is hard to ignore in Voyager and is a hilarious depiction of what most of us coffee addicts would probably be like if we were running a starship. This moment from season five's "Bride of Chaotica!" encapsulates perfectly how we all feel: you just can't function without that first sip!

This moment is only rivaled by Janeway's amazing coffee quote in the episode "Hunters" from season four: "Coffee. The finest organic suspension ever devised. It's got me through the worst of the last three years. I beat the Borg with it." You can see a compilation of Janeway's coffee moments and quotes in this great YouTube video.
