Your favorite angsty magicians are saying goodbye for the year, the battle for the Iron Throne continues, and the Arrowverse is back in action — all in this week on TV.

After a brief hiatus, The Flash returns this week with an episode that looks to bring Barry face to face once again with his arch nemesis Reverse Flash. Arrow is also back, with Black Siren going rogue. On SYFY, The Magicians is wrapping up its twist-filled season (there's also a new episode of the indescribably weird Happy!), while Fox has a new episode of Gotham that looks to set up that future-set series finale.

The big story this week is pretty much the same as last week — the final season of HBO's Game of Thrones continues, as fans clamor to find out who will rule, and if anyone can survive the onslaught of the White Walkers. Digging a bit deeper, there are new eps of Legends of Tomorrow, Knightfall, Into the Badlands, Supergirl and a whole lot more.

Check out our full rundown below and let us know what you'll be watching this week. You know, other than Game of Thrones, of course.
