Sorry for the late post, I got swamped and just started watching the shows as I am posting this. Lucifer goes to a Cinnabon, Supergirl packs an umbrella, Barry gets political advice from Caitlin, The Legends need a weapon like Diana Prince, and the team on Arrow struggle to make two subtraction problems equate.

The most ambitious (thus far) of the CSDCTVU crossovers takes place this week. ‘’ll be reviewing the first two eps here; Lex Pendragon will take over with Parts Three and Four.
The Big Day arrives for Barry and Iris. Several invitees encounter trouble getting to town. Two guests are squabbling, while two others have a too-public debate about their relationship. One guest acts like a drunken obnoxious doof. Two others drink a little too much and wake up in bed together.
In short, it begins like every wedding ever—until the point where it resembles every superhero wedding ever, and Nazis, accompanied by alt-reality versions of some familiar heroes, crash the party at the most predictable point imaginable….

This week, Lucifer teases the answer to “Will they/Won’t they” while acting more like a traditional sit-com/cop drama. Supergirl Wakes Up from the story that was all a dream to give us a second Supergirl. The Flash reveals their season’s big bad’s backstory. Legends continues to use well known names as show titles. Arrow airs on Thanksgiving, so uses it as the theme for the episode.1

Supergirl was strong enough to time travel, bring forth a special review, and she even brought Lucifer into the discussion.1 Lucifer’s episode isn’t a typical episode, focusing on a new character for a one-shot type episode, but also decorates it with added Phlox! The Flash trains Elongated Man and gives us much deeper Wells. Legends visits Hollywood, but has nothing to do with the actress from the title. We also get to see Firestorm reversed. Arrow picks up from last week’s Slade Wilson cliffhanger.

For our weekly foray into the Distinguished Competition’s small-screen super-heroes: Supergirl is all about the girlfriends, and similarly The Flash primarily portrays the partying princesses. Meanwhile Legends and Arrow have to run some errands and take gifts (a Deathstroke and a Mack) back to the store. I may be a bit behind and have misinterpreted the synopsis, which appear after the cut.

Supergirl becomes Xenu, The Flash meets another DC fan-favorite, Legends visits another 80s film, and Arrow lets the characters switch seats.

I stopped watching The Flash regularly when it became too mopey, but I finally caught up with it this week, with the in-CWTCDCU introduction of Elongated Man. Flawed though the episode may be, “Elongated Journey Into Night” showcases the gradual return to the comic-book tone that made the first season so appealing.

Three weeks in! Supergirl fights for some more CGI budget on Mars, The Flash gives up on physics entirely and just listens to Frank Sinatra’s show tunes, and I haven’t caught Legends or Arrow yet so I can’t make fun of them. (Episode descriptions below the cut.)

Our heroes have returned, and face low powered psychics, homicidal technopaths, bearded ladies, saber toothed tiger, and local government. (Episode descriptions below the cut.)
