Prepare yourself fans. Tonight is the night!! Whether you’re a comic book fan, a DC fan or you just love these awesome TV shows, you’re in for a treat when The Flash (Grant Gustin) visits Supergirl in a cross-network collision that’s sure to deliver.
Supergirl Season 1 – Episode 18
“Worlds Finest” – Kara gains a new ally when the lightning-fast superhero The Flash (Grant Gustin) suddenly appears from an alternate universe and helps Kara battle Siobhan, aka Silver Banshee, and Livewire in exchange for her help in finding a way to return him home, on SUPERGIRL, Monday, March 28th on CBS. Grant Gustin crosses over as The Flash.
#SupergirlXTheFlash – How Did This Happen?
In order for The Flash to appear on screen with Supergirl (Melissa Benoit) a bunch of sciency stuff (things only Cisco could explain) and a few miracles had to take place. But we’re not talking on-screen. No – that is the easy part that we’ll see unfold tonight. It’s the behind-the-scenes stuff that is truly magical.
Via Variety.com : “Both ‘Supergirl’ and ‘The Flash’ are executive produced by Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisbergthrough Warner Bros. Television and DC Entertainment, and The CW is jointly owned by Warner Bros. and CBS — which undoubtedly helped the episode jump some of the hurdles presented by an inter-network collaboration — but the crossover still required approval from WBTV boss Peter Roth, CBS topper Glenn Geller and CW head Mark Pedowitz before getting the green light.”
Are You Prepared for the Crossover?
How did we get here? In order for you to be TRULY prepared for the big event, you had to put in some hours. Here are all the episodes of the DC TV Universe that led to this event:
- Arrow – Four Seasons (85 Episodes) – Yes. The Flash’s original story began on Arrow and there have been a few crossover events. If you truly want to know who The Flash is, this is required viewing.
- The Flash – Two Season (39 Episodes) – It’s The Flash who introduced us to Earth 2 and, from what the trailers seem to suggest, the reason why Barry Allen and Kara can exist in the same place. How else would we have NEVER heard of Supergirl on The Flash?
- Supergirl – One Season (17 Episodes) – Supergirl is the Freshman of this group, but the show has already proven itself and established some big villains. You’d be totally lost if you didn’t catch up on this one, at the very least.
- **Legends of Tomorrow – One Season (8 Episodes) – OK, this one is for Extra Credit. The events of LOT don’t immediately impact the story line for The Flash or Supergirl, but who knows what the Future (or the Past for that matter) might reveal.
The big event goes down tonight – Monday, March 28th on CBS at 8/7c!
