Have you ever been at a loss as to what to watch? Too many shows to pick from? We’re here to give you our opinions on what we feel is worth watching. Check it out and then let us know in the comments below what you’re choosing for tonight!
One thing that the Arrowverse shows do better than almost any other group of shows is crossovers, and the “Crisis on Infinite Earths” crossover has been epic in proportion, with a whopping five episodes. The first three episodes aired before Christmas, and we have been waiting, not so patiently, for the final two episodes that air tonight.
In the first three episodes, there was a lot that happened, so I’ll just give you a brief recap so that you are caught up enough for tonight’s episodes, but I do highly recommend that you watch the first three parts because it has been an incredible block of television.
The heroes gathered on Earth 38 because an anti-matter wave was set to hit there next after already taking out Argo, with the last of the Kryptonians. The heroes tried to stop the wave and made a stand against the Anti-Monitor’s army, but the Monitor later declared it a lost cause and started to force them to retreat. However, Oliver refused to leave and fought until his bitter end to save as many lives from Earth 38 as he could. Unfortunately, he later paid the ultimate price when his took his last breath, surrounded by many shattered family members and friends.
Mia and Barry struggled to accept Oliver’s death and enlisted Sarah’s help in resurrecting him. However, he told them to let him go and that he knew was destined for something greater. We were graced with the guest appearances of Constantine and Lucifer during this episode, which was strange but exciting for the viewers. Elsewhere, Supergirl and Batwoman attempted to locate the Paragon of Courage, who after some interesting moments turned out to be Batwoman herself. During this episode, we also saw Tom Welling, who was Clark Kent from Smallville, but we found out that he had given up his powers in order to be a dad.
When we left off at the end of the last episode, the seven paragons were all that were left standing after an anti-matter wave wiped out the whole universe. The shocking twist was that the Lex Luther replaced Brandon Routh’s Superman as the Paragon of Truth after Lex got his hands on the Book of Destiny.
Whew. Are you still as confused as I am? Thankfully tonight will bring us much-needed closure and answers!
First up on Arrow, “Crisis on Infinite Earth Part Four,” stuck in the Vanishing Point, the Paragons search for a way to escape. The futility of the situation is compounded by The Flash’s disappearance. However, hope appears in the form of Oliver, who reveals that he has become something else. Meanwhile, the origin stories for The Monitor and Anti-Monitor are revealed.
Then we conclude with DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, with “Crisis on Infinite Earth Part Five,” and we are left with the fact that Worlds lived, worlds died. Nothing will ever be the same.
Tune in for the beginning of the end on The CW starting at 8/7c.
I’ll also be watching This Is Us, FBI, The Resident, NCIS, Ellen’s Game of Games, FBI: Most Wanted, New Amsterdam, and Gordon’s Ramsay’s 24 Hours to Hell and Back.
