Episode Title: Episode 6
Original Airdate: 9-29-15
As I suspected (though I could have easily just Googled it to find out as well), this was the last episode of this webseries to wrap things up before the CW shows proper start their new fall season next week, this finally rounds out Mari’s origin story to end with her being a fully fledged Vixen, in costume, in Detroit. As this is a very short webseries, I’ll also share my thoughts on the “season” as a whole right after I take a look at the episode. And as usual, since CW Seed doesn’t have any embedding feature, you will have to click the link to watch it on their site, or you can watch it if you have the CW Seed app.

Back again for another Webseries Wednesday, and there’s another brand new episode of CW’s Vixen over on CW Seed. Once again, there’s no embedding so if you’re interested in watching the five minute episode 2 go ahead and click the link below. Last episode brought up a lot of questions about Vixen, a character that I knew nothing about and I still know very little about. This episode answered only a couple of those questions while still leaving much on the table for future episodes, it also introduced what’s likely to be the villain of the season even though all we get to see of her is a mouth.

Welcome to a spin-off of what I’ve been doing lately here on Wednesdays where I feature an episode of a webseries that you can watch right now along with a conversation with the creator. This time around I’m featuring an episode of a brand new studio-driven webseries that ties in with the CW’s Flash and Arrow called Vixen that’s being promoted on their CW Seed site and app. The promising thing about this series is that the protagonist of this series is a Black woman, something that is sorely lacking these days in superhero television or cinema. I don’t know anything about this character’s background so I’m coming at this from a completely clean slate. Also, the CW Seed doesn’t appear to allow embedding so you will have to follow a link to watch the episode as I will not be embedding any pirated versions of this show that may have found their way to YouTube or some other hosting site.
