Warning! Spoilers below for all parts of The CW Crossover, including tonight’s episode of The Flash!

So far, on Crisis on Earth-X, all of the heroes and legends converged on Central City to attend the wedding of Barry and Iris (Grant Gustin, Candice Patton). Of course, happiness can’t happen without hitches and glitches, so Nazis invaded the ceremony, led by evil Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell), evil Supergirl (Melissa Benoist), and the original Eobard Thawne wearing a Wells (Tom Cavanagh) face. They came from Earth-X, the 53rd earth where the Nazis won WWII. The plan? Save dying evil Supergirl by taking the heart of our Kara. Some cool battles ensued, but our heroes were left in a Nazi prison at the end of Arrow last night.

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.

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 night, Barry Allen and Cisco Ramon (Grant Gustin, Carlos Valdes) stopped by Supergirl via wormhole to recruit Kara (Melissa Benoist) for a slight problem. The episode was good, but there was definitely not enough crossover – merely the last 2 minutes. Tonight’s episode of The Flash was the payoff as the gang was all here.

Last week’s Arrow was one of my favorites, as former WWE wrestler, Cody Rhodes, joined the hall of villains as Sampson – a “stardust” dealer, who battled against the Green Arrow (Stephen Amell) in the handsomest fight in town. Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) confessed her part in Haven Rock to Rory (Joe Dinicol). Diggle (David Ramsey) hallucinated Deadshot in the meanest audience trick, but wants to stay in jail for something he didn’t do, as penance for something he did – kill his brother. Lyla (Audrey Marie Anderson) was not having it, and went to get Oliver.

Last week on DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, future Jax (Franz Drameh) told Stein (Victor Garber) that joining Rip (Arthur Darvill) was the right decision, planting the seed of drugging Jax to get him to comply from the beginning of the season. Turns out the Waverider crew were not complete bumbling idiots after all… the Time Masters had been manipulating them the entire time, in order to help Savage (Casper Crump) take over. If he doesn’t… the worse threat of aliens will win. The team defeated the Time Masters, after Snart (Wentworth Miller) sacrificed himself, after getting a goodbye kiss from Sarah (Caity Lotz). Savage escaped with Kendra and Carter (Ciara Renee and Falk Hentschel) as prisoners.

Last week on DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, it was 1986 and they were looking into Operation Svarog, a secret Soviet project that Vandal Savage (Casper Crump) was involved in. Ray and Snart (Brandon Routh and Wentworth Miller) teamed up to get info from this beautiful Russian madwoman, who is trying to build a Russian Firestorm. Ray strikes out, but Snart piques her interest for a while. Predictable fight ensues and half of them are captured. Sara and Hawkgirl (Caity Lotz and Ciara Renee) train as a way for Hawkgirl to control the animal within. But Sara still has limited control over herself, and is humbled. The Timemaster confronts Hunter (Arthur Darvill), offering him immunity and safe passage for the team. But it’s a lie.

Last week on The Flash, Zoom (Tony Todd) was front and center, as Linda (Malese Jow) pretended to be Dr. Light as bait. They did some bad playacting to draw him out, but Zoom wasn’t fooled. He ended up hurting Barry (Grant Gustin) horribly, then dragging his limp body around Central City, showing everyone how their hero has fallen. Barry can’t feel his legs at the end of the episode.

Last week on Supergirl, Kara (Melissa Benoist) learned a lesson and taught a lesson. Her sister Alex (Chyler Leigh) taught her that she needs to learn to fight if she was going to fight people stronger than she was. She had to be smarter about it. She demonstrated this using Kryptonite. Cat (Calista Flockhart) threatened James’s (Mehcad Brooks) job if he did not get her an exclusive interview with Supergirl. Cat dispenses some good advice to Kara. And Kara, in turn, helps James figure out that he can be his own man, and that they were all “stronger together.” Winn (Jeremy Jordan) and James find out that the other knows. Kara’s Aunt Astra (Laura Benanti) tries to get her niece to join her, but is prepared to destroy her if necessary of she gets in her way. Alex gives Kara the gift of her own “Fortress of Solitude.” And Hank Henshaw (David Harewood) has evil red eyes.

The Flash season 1 finale is here! Has this been a fantastic season or what? Little did I know back in October at NYCC, when surprised with a sneak peek of episode 2, that this would end up being one of my favorite shows of the 2014-2015 television season. Who would have thought that the kid from Glee, would end up an awesome superhero? Not this girl! I was happily surprised as Barry Allen and his team (especially my fave, Cisco), continued to wow me every week with this really fun show. It’s gonna be a long summer without them.

Do not continue on if you have not watched the episode. Definite spoilers!
