She explains that once all the craziness in their lives settles down that it could be a possibility. There were some narrative missteps, but this is like nothing we have ever seen on-screen before: a true comic book-style crossover event that ties hours of superhero serials together in one epic story. The same can be said for the show's other Jewish character, Felicity Arrow , who had very little reaction to seeing Nazis. His death spurs the heroes to declare war on Earth-X's Nazi forces. Crisis on Earth-X managed to tell a good story and make sure it has long-lasting effects on the rest of the Arrowverse. You're basically juggling four shows' worth of schedules. But even that was just the tip of the iceberg no pun intended.
While this crossover could have just been a political message about the events of Charlottesville, Virginia, it managed to evolve the characters. One would hope that a company with such history and long-loved characters would attempt to be good stewards of the legacy. There are certainly worse ways to kick off a crossover. There's plenty of banter and character drama from all directions, and it all culminated nicely as it became clear that Barry and Iris were practically the only people at the wedding not feeling miserable. When you have a mere three metahumans and a small army of disposable foot-soldiers, bringing the entirety of the Arrowverse to bear against them seems like overkill. Someone has to check those boxes and set up what comes next, and it seems that this time, Arrow drew the 'event' short straw.
In other words: the Nazi villains dangled in front of the audience as potentially character-altering figures were really just another plot device. In 1973, members of the from Earth-One and the from Earth-Two arrived on Earth-X by way of a accident. This episode is a strong opener because it showcases the danger of Earth-X but manages to balance the seriousness of it all with some fun. The comedy stars starring Michael Douglas and Alan Arkin recently won two Golden Globe Awards, one for best comedy series and the other for Douglas in the best actor in a comedy series category. The heroes come together and take down the Nazis while Flash, Supergirl, and Green Arrow deal with their counterparts. However, I'm making a point of watching and reviewing each chapter of the crossover in turn rather than binging the whole thing and then trying to keep track of what happened where. The graphics showcased a dark tone, with a red sky.
During the fight with Kara, Overgirl's solar radiation goes nuclear and Kara carries her into space, where Overgirl explodes. 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. Reverse Flash threatens to kill Felicity, but Supergirl allows herself to be captured to let Felicity live. This episode was crammed with great little character moments. You can watch all of Arrow Season 6 on Netflix. Between the bathrobe incident and his run-in with Captain Singh, there was never a dull moment watching Mick trying to interact with everyone else in a normal setting. The show began with the wedding of The Flash's Barry and Iris — the Arrow-Verse's only main interracial couple — getting interrupted by Nazis from another Earth.
Labs' particle accelerator, to create artificial that can weaken both Karas' invulnerability, allowing Thawne to conduct a from Kara to Overgirl. Among the characters taken to this alternate Auschwitz were Martin Stein Legends of Tomorrow , an established Jewish character in the Arrow-Verse, and Jefferson Legends of Tomorrow , a young black man. Face palming was what I spent a lot of time doing. The solution so far seems to boil down to never allowing the entire combined might of Team Arrow, Team Flash, the Danvers sisters and the Legends to unite against their Nazi enemies. Finally, I should mention that this episode also captured the emotional heft of Barry and Iris' big moment right up to the point where it was predictably ruined. The show's decision to include Auschwitz in the crossover made the problem even more glaring.
The heroes continue fighting them back and eventually cause them to retreat. The single hardest factor in doing the crossovers is actors' availability because the shows keep going on. Despite all these Nazi doppelgangers, Oliver still finds time to confront Felicity about her not wanting to marry him. It gets you excited for the next two episodes and makes you want to know how these heroes will stop the conquering of their world. Japan was originally an ally of the Nazis, but, when they seemed to have won the war and laid down their arms, the Nazis betrayed them.
After Supergirl takes down the Earth-X flyer, the Nazis retreat — aside from the masked swordsman, who the heroes lock up beneath S. Oliver allows the timeship to enter Earth-1 to avoid jeopardizing his cover, but he is ultimately exposed when he refuses to kill Felicity's Earth-X doppelgänger, a concentration camp prisoner. Barry and Iris's wedding brings the gang together, but things go awry when villains from Earth-X attack the ceremony. Harry, who pilots the Waverider, destroys the Wellenreiter after the heroes disable its. When the wedding finally happens, all seems to be going well. There are certainly worse ways to kick off a crossover. Emboldened by President Trump and glossed over by modern labels such as the , Nazi sympathizers are more vocal than ever in the U.
After being freed, the heroes are brought to the base of the rebels. It gave Franz Drameh and Victor Garber a chance to stretch their acting wings, and it closed out a timely, wall-to-wall entertaining four hours of television. General , the commander of the Freedom Fighters, is determined to strand Dark Arrow and Overgirl on Earth-1 by destroying their temporal gateway. One might think that The Flash would use this opportunity as a way to discuss what might be some complications in any interracial relationship, or to hint at the difference between Iris' reaction to the Nazis as a black woman to Barry's reaction as a white man. The festivities had clearly gotten to Oliver, who decided to try for his second proposal to Ms. Barry spares Thawne, who vows to return.
