The CW’s big crossover events are something that a lot of fans, me included, look forward to. Like so many other things, last year’s was cancelled due to complications from COVID. In part to try and make up for that, The Flash began season eight with a five-part event called Armageddon.
The five part Armageddon event on Flash has been busy already, bringing in various guest stars to face the menace of Despero. This version of Despero is from the future and is determined to kill Barry because, in Despero’s time, Flash goes mad and destroys the world. Now, Team Flash needs to find out what’s going on with Barry, figure out a way to stop Despero, and keep things from going utterly bad for the Scarlet Speedster. Part 3 shows Barry looking for special help from a character we haven’t seen for a while.
he five part “Armageddon” event kicked off with Flash’s first episode of season eight. Billed as a special crossover to help make up for the lack of big events due to COVID, this is supposed to feature Barry Allen and company teaming up with various other Arrowverse characters to battle a great menace.
Flash’s eighth season starts off with “Armageddon,” a five part event with each episode guest starring a hero from elsewhere in this world of heroes. Part one sets up the new status quo, introduces a new villain and some updated older ones, and puts things into motion.
