**SPOILERS AHEAD** If you are not fully caught up on The Flash or Supergirl, do not read this post!
DC has been working hard to bring its heroes together. We've seen this in their popular shows like Arrow, Legends of Tomorrow, The Flash, and most recently Supergirl. They've even branched out to their movie franchise, bringing the comic smackdown to life in Batman VS Superman: Dawn of Justice.
BUT, like in The Flash, and even in an episode or two of Supergirl, we know there can be more than one version of Earth. Then there is the fluidity of the timestream, as we have seen in Legends of Tomorrow and Arrow/Flash crossover episodes. Between Barry's ability to run fast enough to turn back time, and Rip Hunter's time traveling ship (we see what you did there, Legends) we are thoroughly convinced that anything is possible.
But even so, how can this newest crossover, bringing our favourite scarlet speedster and youngest caped Kryptonian together, be explained?
In a couple of sneak peek videos, we can see Barry and Winn explaining the multiverse theory to a skeptical Kara and Jimmy. Apparently, Barry is now so fast he can hop universes – clear from the CW to CBS! I think we can safely say that Barry's slow streak is over. After Harry from Earth 2 stole 2% of The Flash's speed to save his daughter from Zoom, it was touch and go there for a bit. Barry even talked his team into letting him attempt cliff-jumping!
Thanks again for bringing those drones, Cisco.
In the second clip, we can see Kara's lying abilities fall short of the mark (an unfortunate pattern that has been happening for a while now) as she attempts to explain Barry's appearance to her boss, Cat Grant. The cousin excuse will only work so many times, and as the most influential person (and woman) in the multimedia world, Cat's probably heard her fair share of crazy stories.
Honestly, Kara, you had a better poker face during your first CatCo job interview. After all these years, we expect better!
Kara Danvers and Barry Allen made new headlines when the Supergirl/Flash crossover aired Monday, March 28! While we may not be getting another big CBS to CW crossover episode anytime soon, sources say we can expect a series of smaller crossovers in the future – as well as some multiverse mythology!
