Supergirl and the Flash team up to deliver an great interactive, light hearted crossover that inspired the path to many more crossovers in the future.
When it comes to superhero crossover, directors and producers of the two hit DC Comics superhero show were not afraid to skip channels to bringing the ultimate crossover in TV history yet.
We are talking about the CW Flash and CBS’s own Supergirl crossover. The Flash currently in its second season and Supergirl in its debut season have both got an established audience although Supergirl has been lacking in gaining a quick fan base like the Flash did in its debut season.
Many people thought that the purpose of this crossover would be to bring the Flash audience to watch Supergirl. However, executive producers Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg of both the shows clarified on that the crossover was an attempt to explore the possibility of the success of the crossovers and the audience reaction to the idea.
The episode however covered too much in so little time that it left the audience wanting more. We saw that Barry Allen aka The Flash was able to travel between alternate universes due to hyper speed. We witnessed these abilities for the first time when Scarlet Speedster raced back to his own universe over on The CW.
So in this episode, it was like a one sided crossover that starts with The Flash hyper speeding to another Earth where our superheroine is the saviour. It is none other than Kara Denvers aka Supergirl who meets Barry on his day in the alternate universe. Instead of the clash that we saw in the latest Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice between the two DC Comic superheroes, these superheroes are actually intrigued with each other and spend the day talking and discussing views including their nerdy interests to their personal and romantic lives to their PR issues.
Barry has some advice to give Kara on every matter as we can say that chronologically, he has more experience than her. A whole season older and wiser, Barry tells Kara to wait out both her love interest James and the National City to except her again after her rampage caused by red Kryptonite.
His advice seems to work and we would have enjoyed the episode much more if the events that followed might have gone a little slower than they did.
We saw the development of the Silver Banshee on the episode. In this episode, we saw the Silver Banshee team up with Livewire to bring down Supergirl and Cat Grant.
Although Brit Morgan and Italia Ricci brought their A-game to bring life to the characters, the development of Banshee was a little lacking and bland.
All the DC Comic fans knows that tragic story behind this villain and the lack of that story left plenty of room to doubt whether she was a very bad supervillain or not. Although her wailing did cause Superwoman to bleed from the ears, which is a scary concept in itself.
Both our superheroes faced off against Banshee and Livewire to save the days and consequently win the support of the public for Supergirl as they saw her risk her own life for them. It was the National City firefighters who save her after the Banshee attack.
So Barry’s advice finally worked as Supergirl not only won over National City but also got that kiss with James at the end, reported Variety.
Barry went back to his own Earth at the end and producers explain that the crossover will not affect The Flash much. It will just be one day that he was gone and he has returned with a positive outlook knowing that there is an ally out there he can call on in time of need.
