Even as Christmas creeps up on us like stocking full of candy canes to the back of the head. The true worry is what happens after Christmas.
Y’know, when we finish Crisis on Infinite Earths on Tuesday, January 14.
While we’ve finish the first three parts of the long-awaited four-night, five-hour crossover event, there are still those final two hours. In preparation for that day, The CW dropped the synopses for the final two hours of the event Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow.
The hour for Arrow is particularly interesting as it was co-written by Marv Wolfman, who wrote the original Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover event back in the late 80s. The hour seems to confirm that Oliver has indeed become the Spectre (or something similar to it). Also Barry (Grant Gustin) has disappeared for some weird reason?
Plus, we have the origin stories for the Monitor and Anti-Monitor (both played by LaMonica Garrett).
OLIVER HAS BECOME SOMETHING ELSE IN PART FOUR OF “CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS.” EPISODE PENNED BY MARV WOLFMAN & MARC GUGGENHEIM – Stuck in the Vanishing Point, the Paragons search for a way to escape. The futility of the situation is compounded by The Flash’s (guest star Grant Gustin) disappearance. However, hope appears in the form of Oliver (Stephen Amell), who reveals that he has become something else. Meanwhile, the origin stories for The Monitor (guest star LaMonica Garrett) and Anti-Monitor are revealed. Glen Winter directed the episode written by Marv Wolfman & Marc Guggenheim.
Legends of Tomorrow, meanwhile, has the sparsest line of all of the crossover synopses. It merely repeats the classic line of Crisis on Infinite Earths: “Worlds lived, worlds died. Nothing will ever be the same.”
Crisis on Infinite Earths concludes on Tuesday, Jan. 14 at 8/7c and 9/8c on the CW.
