Crisis On Infinite Earths Unveils Synopses For First Three Hours

Credit: The CW

Crisis on Infinite Earths is a little over two weeks away from debuting.

For fans who have been waiting for the event since The Flash premiered back in 2014, this is a time of terror and joy. Mainly terror because oh God what is going to happen to the Arrowverse? This is going to fundamentally change so many shows. It signals the end of Arrow.

The three synopses released for the event have all kinds of freaking out. Let’s take a look at them.

Supergirl: “Crisis On Infinite Earths: Part One” (Check out the photos!)

THE KICKOFF TO THE EPIC CROSSOVER EVENT
Sunday, Dec. 8 at 8/7c (special time)
The Monitor (guest star LaMonica Garrett) sends Harbinger (guest star Audrey Marie Anderson) to gather the worlds’ greatest heroes – Supergirl, The Flash, Green Arrow, Batwoman, White Canary, The Atom and Superman (guest star Tyler Hoechlin) – in preparation for the impending Crisis.  With their worlds in imminent danger, the superheroes suit up for battle while J’onn and Alex recruit Lena to help them find a way to save the people of Earth-38.

There is a theory that somehow Earth-1 and Earth-38 combine during the event, bringing in Supergirl in the main Arrowverse Earth. Could this is what we be seeing? (Also hopefully things work out well in Supergirl‘s midseason finale for Lena to work with everyone again.)

Batwoman: “Crisis On Infinite Earths: Part Two” (Check out the photos!)

CAN THE REAL CLARK KENT PLEASE STAND UP? ‘CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS’ CONTINUES WITH SPECIAL GUEST STARS TOM WELLING, ERICA DURANCE AND KEVIN CONROY
Monday, Dec. 9 at 8 pm (special day)
The group uses Ray’s invention to track new recruits to help save the universe. The Monitor sends Iris, Clark and Lois (guest star Elizabeth Tulloch) in search of a mysterious Kryptonian, while Kate and Kara head out to find Bruce Wayne (guest star Kevin Conroy). In addition, Mia challenges Sara, Rory discovers a hidden talent, and Lex Luthor (guest star Jon Cryer) returns.

SO. MANY. SUPERMEN! We’re so excited to see Smallville, which Arrow owes so much to its existence, back on our screens in a way. Brandon Routh returning as Clark Kent? Excited! Plus Kevin “The Real Goddamn Batman” Conroy? Please.

The Flash: “Crisis On Infinite Earths: Part Three”

BLACK LIGHTNING JOINS THE ARROWVERSE IN THE THIRD CHAPTER OF THE CROSSOVER
Tuesday, Dec. 10 at 8 pm
Pariah (The Flash‘s Tom Cavanagh) enlists Black Lightning (guest star Cress Williams) to help stop the Anti-Monitor (guest star LaMonica Garrett) after Flash-90 (guest star John Wesley Shipp) shares what he learned from his battle in “Elseworlds.”  With the help of Black Lightning, Barry, Cisco and Killer Frost come up with a plan that could save them all.  Meanwhile, Iris has a heart-to-heart with Ryan Choi (Legends of Tomorrow newcomer Osric Chau), while Oliver and Diggle return to an old, familiar stomping ground.

The fact that Chau is called “Legends of Tomorrow newcomer” is definitely making us think that he’ll take over when Brandon Routh leaves later in the season, despite attempts to squash the reports as “rumors”. The major exciting thing is seeing Jefferson Pierce/Black Lightning (Cress Williams) officially make his Arrowverse debut. John Wesley-Shipp gets to return as 90s Barry Allen! It’s so much fun!

Crisis On Infinite Earths airs Sunday, Dec. 8 with Supergirl, Monday, Dec. 9 with Batwoman, and Tuesday, Dec. 10 with The Flash. The crossover will conclude on Tuesday, Jan. 14 with Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow.
