Last week on The Flash, all my dreams came true as Barry and the Barettes did a few musical numbers. Also a Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow, and Arrow-ish crossover (latter 2 and The Flash came from Arrow), a villain called the Music Meister (Darren Criss, Glee) trapped Kara Danvers (Melissa Benoist) in a musical dreamworld, mentioning The Flash (Grant Gustin) as he exited. Mon-El and J’onn (Chris Wood, David Harewood) brought her to S.T.A.R. Labs for help. The Music Meister got pinched, but not before he sent Barry down the rabbit hole as well. The rules were they had to move the story (of forbidden mob love), along with performances of some snappy numbers. Here’s where Gustin, Benoist, Carlos Valdes (Cisco), Jeremy Jordan (Winn), Jesse L. Martin (Joe West), Victor Garber (Stein), and John Barrowman (Malcolm Merlyn) got to show off their chops with some awesome original and cover songs. My favorite, “I’m Your Superfriend,” was written by Rachel Bloom (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend – my new guilty pleasure), and was a complete delight, with Benoist and Gustin using comedy and tap to make me smile. Everything worked out – Barry and Iris (Candice Patton) and Mon-El and Kara reconciled and escaped the dreamworld, because the Music Meister wasn’t a villain at all. He did this for love. This episode also showed off Gustin’s funny side.

Last night on Supergirl, a musical was briefly mentioned as a suggestion for a movie from Mon-El to Kara (Chris Woods, Melissa Benoist). Then… at the end of the episode, an alien was brought in who spoke to Kara, “I’ve been looking for you.” He breaks out of his cuffs and whammies her with his eyes. She passes out and opens her eyes to a dream state where she is all dolled up and pushed onstage to sing.

Last week on The Flash, Savitar kept messing with Wally’s (Keiynan Lonsdale) mind. Julian (Tom Felton) reluctantly went under so Barry (Grant Gustin) could talk to Savitar. Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) confessed she kept a piece of the philosopher’s stone, which turned out to be a good thing. As long as it wasn’t whole, Savitar was trapped in the speed force. Unfortunately, Wally threw the other piece in, freeing Savitar and trapping Wally. Jesse (Violett Beane) turned to HR (Tom Cavanagh) for dad comfort. Barry and Iris (Candice Patton) got engaged, then unengaged.

Last week on The Flash, Grodd (David Sobolov) and his army came to Earth-1 from a breach that Gypsy (Jessica Camacho) made because of mind control. Although it looked completely hopeless that Barry (Grant Gustin) could defeat him without killing him, both Iris and Harry (Candice Patton, Tom Cavanagh) pep-talked him into another way. That way? Tagging Solovar (Keith David) in to defeat Grodd and take the army back to Earth-2. Jesse (Violett Beane) decided to stay on Earth-1 with Wally (Keiynan Lonsdale) and give it a go. Gypsy smooched Cisco (Carlos Valdes) goodbye.

Last week on The Flash, the team sans Wally, Jesse, Iris, and Joe (Keiynan Lonsdale, Violett Beane, Candice Patton, Jesse L. Martin) rolled to Earth-2 to save Harry from Grodd (David Sobolov). It’s a trap! Grodd told Barry (Grant Gustin) he had to kill the Gorilla City leader, Solovar (Keith David), because of a plan to attack Earth-1. Barry fought and defeated (but didn’t kill) Solovar, and then Grodd revealed the real reason… Solovar was the one preventing Grodd from attacking Earth-1’s Central City. They all got locked up again, but Barry played dead via “frost.” When Grodd threw his body onto the trash heap, Barry warmed back up, and they all escaped back to Earth-1. Wally and Jesse grew closer, while Caitlin warned Julian (Danielle Panabaker, Tom Felton) away (he didn’t listen).

Two weeks ago on The Flash, the meta of the day was one that Alchemy aka Julian (Tom Felton) had awakened. His touch had the ability to cause matter to disintegrate, and people to decompose to ash. That meta, Clive Yorkin (Matthew Kevin Anderson), went after cops that collared him in Flashpoint. He touched Iris (Candice Patton) to hurt Joe West (Jesse L. Martin). Barry (Grant Gustin) figured that out, so Cisco (Carlos Valdes) vibed there to find the next target. Yorkin caused a train full of people to be in danger, so Barry vibed the whole train safely through, leaving Kid Flash (Keiynan Lonsdale) to vibe (for the first time) through Yorkin with a neutralizer.

Last week on The Flash, a sexy bounty hunter came from Earth-19 to collect HR (Tom Cavanagh), but he has grown on the team.

After battling through several worlds, including Earth-2, Earth-38 (Supergirl), and a Mustafar-like world, Cisco won and made HR a permanent resident of Earth-1.

Last week on The Flash, HR (Tom Cavanagh) turned S.T.A.R. Labs into a museum, complete with a Cisco (Carlos Valdes) hologram, much to his chagrin. Caitlin asked Julian (Danielle Panabaker, Tom Felton) to join the team. Barry (Grant Gustin) and Cisco vibed back to the future (4 months from now), to figure out what the news was that day, so they could try and change it. Part of that plan was to have Kid Flash (Keiynan Lonsdale) capture villain of the day, Plunder, who appeared in that future news flash.

Last time on The Flash, we saw a bit of Julian’s (Tom Felton) history, which basically explained the Alchemy/Savitar situation with something called the Philosopher’s Stone. Earth-3’s Jay Garrick (John Wesley Shipp) was supportive (almost like a dad), with wise words and a suggestion to get rid of the Philosophers Stone (oh yeah-fixed Julian and “fixed” Savitar), of throwing it in the speed force. Barry (Grant Gustin) accidentally ran 5 months into the future and watched Iris (Candice Patton) die at the hands of Savitar. Barry gave Iris an awesome apartment for Christmas.
