Everything You Need To Know About The CW Crossover Event

We are less than two weeks away from the four-night crossover event. Given that these crossovers grew from the simple Arrow/Flash crossover two years ago, which is still my favorite, we have grown to cover not only all three CW originals but will include the newly arrived Supergirl that will actually start off the event. This news may seem a bit old but this is a post that has all the information about the event, including trailers, synopsis and pictures from all four episodes.

The crossover even starts on Monday, November 28th with Supergirl. The trailer below is the trailer for the entire event but here is the synopsis for the episode which will have a crossover from The Flash that brings Barry and Cisco to her universe.

Eliza (guest star Helen Slater) comes to town to celebrate Thanksgiving with her daughters. Alex (Chyler Leigh) decides it’s time to come out to her mother; Kara (Melisa Benoist) is shocked when Eliza suggests Mon-El (Chris Wood) has feelings for her, and Winn (Jeremy Jordan) and James (Mehcad Brooks) consider telling Kara the truth about the Guardian. Meanwhile, CADMUS unleashes a virus that instantly kills any alien in the vicinity so Kara enlists an unexpected ally – Lena Luthor (Katie McGrath). The epic superhero crossover kicks off tonight when Barry Allen (guest star Grant Gustin) and Cisco Ramon (guest star Carlos Valdes) seek Kara’s help with an alien invasion on their Earth.


This will continue with a move over to The Flash as we get to Tuesday, November 29th, which seems to set up as a prequel to the arrival of Barry and Cisco to the Supergirl universe.

When aliens called the Dominators attack Central City, Barry (Grant Gustin) speeds over to Star City to ask the Green Arrow (guest star Stephen Amell) for help in stopping them. Realizing the battle against the Dominators is bigger than they thought, they track down the Legends of Tomorrow, and Barry and Cisco (Carlos Valdes) create a breach to bring back a secret weapon – Supergirl (guest star Melissa Benoist). Once all of the super friends are assembled, they come up with a plan to attack but a shocking secret related to Flashpoint is revealed and suddenly no one is sure who they can trust. Meanwhile, Wally (Keiynan Lonsdale) wants to join the battle against the aliens but Iris (Candice Patton) tells him he’s not ready.


This episode of Arrow will not only be part of the crossover event, but this episode will serve as the 100th episode of the series. A huge milestone given that no one thought it would make it this long. On Wednesday, November 30th, it would seem that Oliver is in a weird state.

Oliver (Stephen Amell) wakes up to a life where he never got on The Queen’s Gambit. Robert (guest star Jamey Sheridan) and Moira Queen (guest star Susanna Thompson) are alive and well. Laurel (guest star Katie Cassidy) is his loving fiancée and their wedding is imminent. Everything seems perfect, but Oliver starts to notice small imperfections that make him question this new reality. Meanwhile, Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) and the recruits take on a new threat with help from The Flash (guest star Grant Gustin) and Supergirl (guest star Melissa Benoist).


Lastly, on Thursday, December 1st, the four-part episode comes to a close on Legends of Tomorrow.

After learning the Dominators’ plan for the world, the Legends must work together with The Flash (guest star Grant Gustin), Supergirl (guest star Melissa Benoist), and Green Arrow (guest star Stephen Amell) to kill them once and for all. Meanwhile, Stein (Victor Garber) figures out, with the help of others, how the team can terminate the Dominators, but is distracted by the aberration he realizes he created in 1987. Brandon RouthFranz DramehDominic PurcellMaisie Richardson-SellersNick Zano, and Caity Lotz also star.


While some people may consider the nation is on superhero overload, this will be a good reason as to while shows like this are great for comic book fans. The proximity of all these shows, and characters, will allow them to crossover on a whim. This is one of the few shows that makes everything seem like a comic book and doesn’t make a huge deal of it, unless you are bringing all series together for one main storyline. It cannot come fast enough.
