Barry Allen: “I see aliens!”
Barry (Grant Gustin) faces a global threat as aliens begin to invade. His response? To go get the prettiest, friendliest, strongest alien that he knows: none other than Kara Zor-el. Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) herself. Which instantly makes you wonder, why didn’t she ask Superman to come with them as well? But we’ve still got heroes a’plenty in this second episode of the 4 part CW super crossover. It’ll be the closest thing to seeing the Justice League on TV that we’ve had in a while. Dermott Downs directed the episode with story by Greg Berlanti & Andrew Kreisberg and teleplay by Aaron Helbing & Todd Helbing. Here’s the official synopsis:
IT’S HEROES VS. ALIENS IN THIS EPIC CROSSOVER EVENT
When aliens called the Dominators attack Central City, Barry (Grant Gustin) speeds over to Star City to ask the Green Arrow (guest star Stephen Amell) for help in stopping them. Realizing the battle against the Dominators is bigger than they thought, they track down the Legends of Tomorrow, and Barry and Cisco (Carlos Valdes) create a breach to bring back a secret weapon – Supergirl (guest star Melissa Benoist). Once all of the super friends are assembled, they come up with a plan to attack but a shocking secret related to Flashpoint is revealed and suddenly no one is sure who they can trust. Meanwhile, Wally (Keiynan Lonsdale) wants to join the battle against the aliens but Iris (Candice Patton) tells him he’s not ready.
