‘Supergirl,’ ‘Flash,’ ‘Arrow’ Release Full ‘Invasion!’ Crossover Synopses
Hard to believe it’s already here, but a scant two weeks will see the combined mights of Supergirl, Flash, Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow assembling for the four-night, three-part “Invasion!” crossover. Just in case you couldn’t wait any longer to find out how each episode interlocks, check out all four synopsis of The CW’s DC series for the week, including Arrow’s 100th episode!
As previously explained by The CW, the crossover actually begins November 28 on that Monday’s Supergirl, “Medusa,” though we won’t see much of Kara’s CW pals until Barry and Cisco show up. As for the episode itself, there’s feelings! And coming-out! See for yoruself:
A NIGHT OF CONFESSIONS; THE EPIC SUPERHERO CROSSOVER KICKS OFF TONIGHT — 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.
From there, Tuesday will backtrack a bit through The Flash to showcase the “Invasion!” how and why of Barry and Cisco popping over to Kara’s Earth to begin with:
IT’S HEROES VS. ALIENS IN THIS EPIC CROSSOVER EVENT — 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.
Shocking secrets, you say, hmm? Well, hard to say if baby Sara Diggle becoming John Jr. is all that shocking, but Arrow’s 100th episode at least now explains why Oliver is seeing so many familiar faces from the past:
ARROW CELEBRATES 100 EPISODES; THE EPIC SUPERHERO CROSSOVER CONTINUES — 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).
Okay! Let’s close this thing out with Legends of Tomorrow:
ALL FOR ONE AND ONE FOR ALL IN THIS CROSSOVER OF SUPERHEROS — 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.
We’ve still got another week of episodes between now and then (save for Arrow and Legends, who sit out next week), but check out the trailer again below, and prepare for the big “Invasion!”
