Tuesday is the big day, folks!
After months of speculation and weeks of teasers, we’re about to see the long awaited Supergirl and The Flash crossover “Duet”. It has certainly promised to be a little goofy, a lot of fun, and to explore character pathos.
You know, that old chestnut. Barry (Grant Gustin) and Kara (Melissa Benoist) have both been going through a lot of crap on their respective shows. Granted, Barry’s is largely of his own making because Flashpoint. But let’s not kick that metaphorical dead horse again.
So really who doesn’t want to be stuck in an old school musical? Well, them, but they’re there at the behest of the Music Meister (Darren Criss). I’m sure that if he didn’t put them in a coma and invited them along things would turn out different.
Entertainment Tonight paid a set visit on the episode where Benoist and Gustin were clearly having a lot of fun with this episode. While there, they also got a snippet of the duet between the pair “Superfriends” which was written by Crazy Ex-Girlfriend star, Rachel Bloom.
Honestly, I hope we get to spend more time in the musical world and less time in the real word. You don’t get to dangle a gimmick like that without going whole-hog.
Benoist also confirmed that it’s not all fun and games. This is also for some real personal growth.
“They’re on a journey. They’re both on personal journeys sort of figuring things out together as a team.”
Check out the video below.
“Duet” will start at the tail end of Supergirl on Monday at 8/7c and the full episode will air Tuesday at 8/7c on The Flash.
