As the fall season continues to wrap up, this week brings finales for two DC Comics shows, plus some interesting new episodes well worth checking out. As for the weekend? We'll just assume everyone is watching Solo: A Star Wars Story.

The CW's Flash ends its fourth season with a final fight to save the world from Devoe, while SYFY's Krypton also brings its battle against Brainiac to an end. AMC's frightening horror series The Terror is also wrapping its first season.

The season-enders might take the spotlight, there's still plenty of new stuff to check out. The CW's Supergirl and iZombie are both new, along with more than a few A-list interviews on James Cameron's Story of Science Fiction. FX's Legion is new, SYFY's The Expanse is new, HBO has a new Westworld and Freeform has the season finale of Siren.
