Barry and Iris’s wedding brings the gang together, but things go awry when villains from Earth-X attack the ceremony. All of the superheroes band together with help from their super friends like Citizen Cold, The Ray, Felicity Smoak, Iris West, and Alex Danvers to take on their most formidable villains yet. Earth’s mightiest heroes – Green Arrow, Supergirl, The Flash, and White Canary – lead their teams into battle to save the world.
This was fun. I have no time to watch the other three shows just to find out what happens, but from what I gather, they’re also a lot of fun. It’s all good. I don’t think I’ll miss much in the grand scheme of things. I’ll just watch the Felicity/Oliver marriage in clips or through gifs.
I know this whole thing is controversial and I’m going to side with (probably) the majority and say that Felicity and Oliver also getting married during Barry and Iris’ wedding might have been in poor taste. I just might watch the Legends of Tomorrow part of the crossover just to see how the whole wedding thing went down since it’s caused a lot of controversy and Olicity backlash.
LOVED Tommy’s return even though he’s Tommy from Earth-X. Colin is always welcome to come back. Loved that he was Prometheus in that iteration of Earth. I was amused by everyone’s reaction when they found out that Oliver and Kara from Earth-X were married. I actually thought Stephen and Melissa had very good romantic chemistry together.
Felicity not wanting to marry Oliver, ouch. I get her reasons, but man, that had to hurt Oliver. Good thing he didn’t let it get to him too much and was able to compartmentalize that part of himself so he can concentrate on fighting Nazis.
I stopped watching Supergirl (because it stopped being about Kara once that character showed up) so I enjoyed the little Danvers scene we got. I miss that relationship and wish I didn’t have to give it up. Unless that character goes away for good, I will never watch Supergirl ever again. Alex and Sara by the elevator was hilarious. Loved how Sara just took it in stride and got enjoyment at getting Alex all flustered.
Rory continues to be funny. It was cool to see Caitlin’s power. I miss Cisco! What happened to him? I know the mention that he was unconscious, but why? I stopped watching The Flash several seasons ago. Black Canary, Wild Dog, and Curtis showing up only to get their asses handed to them by Oliver-X had me laughing. Useless. Please get rid of all of them and bring back Thea and Roy.
