Invoking the title of a cult-classic movie, "Streets of Fire" revolves around the ultimate face-off between the forces led by Oliver and Slade (Stephen Amell, Manu Bennett) as an all-out assault on the city begins. Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) is stunned by a message she receives from S.T.A.R. Labs. Thea (Willa Holland) and her father (guest star John Barrowman, "Torchwood") have an encounter.
Theodore Roosevelt (voice of Paul Giamatti) seems to be everywhere, doing everything in "The Fire of Life (1910-1919)," Part 3 of Ken Burns' new miniseries.

Eleanor (voice of Meryl Streep) discovers FDR's (voice of Edward Herrmann) extramarital affair, making their union more practical than passionate.
