CW Crossover Week Synopsis and Trailers

The CW’s big four crossover Heroes vs Aliens begins TONIGHT!!!  This is the biggest crossover event ever on television spanning across four days on four shows, Supergirl, The Flash, Arrow, and Legends of Tomorrow.  


CW has produced crossovers between The Flash and Arrow before.  The Flash even crossed networks when Supergirl was still on CBS.  The Arrow cast has also shown up on episodes of Legends of Tomorrow.  And there have been random appearances of characters from Arrow and The Flash showing up on each other’s shows from time to time.  But this is the first time Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow have been included in a Flash/Arrow storyline.  

The synopsis for each show is as follows:


Supergirl ‘Medusa’

Eliza (Helen Slater) comes to town to celebrate Thanksgiving with her daughters. Alex (Chyler Leigh) decides it’s time to come out to her mother; Kara (Melisa Benoist) is shocked when Eliza suggests Mon-El (Chris Wood) has feelings for her. Winn (Jeremy Jordan) and James (Mehcad Brooks) consider telling Kara the truth about the Guardian. Meanwhile, CADMUS unleashes a virus that instantly kills any alien in the vicinity so Kara enlists an unexpected ally – Lena Luthor (Katie McGrath). The epic superhero crossover kicks off tonight when Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) and Cisco Ramon (Carlos Valdes) seek Kara’s help with an alien invasion on their Earth.


The Flash ‘Invasion’

When aliens called the Dominators attack Central City, Barry (Grant Gustin) speeds over to Star City to ask the Green Arrow (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 (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.

Arrow ‘Invasion’ (EPISODE 100!)

Oliver (Stephen Amell) wakes up to a life where he never got on The Queen’s Gambit. Robert (Jamey Sheridan) and Moira Queen (Susanna Thompson) are alive and well. Laurel (Katie Cassidy) is his loving fiancée and their wedding is imminent. Everything seems perfect, but Oliver starts to notice small imperfections that make him question this new reality. Meanwhile, Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) and the recruits take on a new threat with help from The Flash (Grant Gustin) and Supergirl (Melissa Benoist).


Legends of Tomorrow ‘Invasion’

After learning the Dominators’ plan for the world, the Legends must work together with The Flash (Grant Gustin), Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) and Green Arrow (Stephen Amell) to kill them once and for all. Meanwhile, Stein (Victor Garber) figures out, with the help of others, how the team can terminate the Dominators, but is distracted by the aberration he realizes he created in 1987.
