The big CW Elseworlds crossover continues over on Arrow. The episodes debuts the new voiceover for the series, but it’s being done by Barry because of the body swap, which is a really nice little detail that they probably spent more than they needed to on.
I’m a superhero geek, and I really enjoy it when someone does something particularly good in the genre. The last several years, the CW/DC Comics shows have done an annual crossover, and I think they’ve been getting better and better.
The Flash celebrates a special 100th episode with, “What’s Past is Prologue,” which is not only a very eventual episode for the show, but leads into this year’s big crossover, Elseworlds.
“O Come All Ye Thankful” starts off with a near miss, as Barry follows up on a lead from last episode and damn near comes face to face with Cicada himself.
The STAR Labs crew has to face a new threat from the pages of DC Comics when things go awry as “The Icicle Cometh.”
Flash takes something of a break from the Thinker this week to deal with an entirely different threat in “Enter Flashtime.” It’s a better done story than many of them have been lately and it shows some interesting ideas.
Barry and Iris’ wedding is creeping closer, and on any tv show that means it’s about time for some kind of disastrous and/or humorous bachelor/bachelorette party. The title “Girls’ Night Out” should give you an idea about what they’re going to be focusing on, although we see a bit of both sides. It’s also an excuse for a guest star or two, and a new introductory voiceover.
