Arrowverse “Crisis on Earth-X” Crossover Recap

Okay, last week was another amazing November sweeps crossover extravaganza in the Arrowverse, and this year’s “Crisis on Earth-X” was totally worth the hype! Starting slow on Supergirl, the story initially followed all the pre-wedding preparations. It was an episode that went heavy on the soundtrack, a theme that peaked in Kara singing a beautiful song, that I think(?) was an original tune, at Flash & Iris’s wedding. Until – of course – the alternate dimension Nazi Super Villain Army burst in. For real. It was rad. It was what we signed up for. And this round the good guys won.

The second episode in the series was on Arrow, which revealed some key plot points to us but didn’t end great per se for the good guys. We learned that the army of genetic purists from Earth-X were led by that dimension’s version of Oliver “Green Arrow” Queen & Kara “Supergirl” Danver, who were also in evil-love and unhappily married. Unhappy why? Cause of a super-cancer that was destroying her heart. So they needed Earth-3 Kara’s heart. A veritable War of the Worlds erupted, and by the end of this one, everybody but Iris & Felicity were in an Earth-X concentration camp.

Next up in The Flash, they got rescued from certain death by that Nazi boot stomp dimension’s version of Captain Cold. And as if him being a good guy wasn’t surprising enough, he was also there to rescue his gay lover and fellow fascist fighting superhero, The Ray. But Kara was still held by the evil version of Oliver and would soon go under the knife. Professor Stein took a bullet (that would eventually kill him), saving the day in this chapter, and at the end, tables were slightly turned with only Kara, Iris, & Felicity being captured. But everyone else didn’t have it easy – they were fighting the Red Tornado, who was summarily kicking their collective asses.

I’m thoroughly enjoying this season of Man With a Plan. Last week was especially funny because Adam learned that he and Andi weren’t legally married. The man who’d married them years before showed up on their doorstep, wanting to make amends – turned out he had some issues and had forgotten to renew his license back then. Of course, it was also Adam’s fault… He’d hired this guy instead of the man Andi told him to hire since her pick was so much more expensive. He was going to tell her, but then they got into a discussion about how he cheaped out on everything from napkins to the single-use coffee pods, and he decided to keep it to himself. He convinced her to do a “vow renewal,” but the guy showed up again, needing to make amends to Andi as well, and the truth came to light. In the end, it turned out to be a simple trip to the courthouse off screen, and then we got to see how their “second wedding night” went…with all three kids in bed with them. It was a sweet moment.

On tonight’s episode, “The Parents Strike Back,” when the kids won’t do their chores, Adam and Andi decide to go on strike too.

To see what happens when the house falls apart one pile of stuff at a time, tune in to CBS at 8:30/7:30c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Holiday Baking Championship, Superior Donuts, 9JKL, Christmas Cookie Challenge, & Scorpion.

Last week’s The Big Bang Theory was really great. Sheldon was stressing big-time as he tried to plan the perfect wedding, starting with the wedding date. He couldn’t settle on one because everything he tried turned out to be the birth or death date of a famous scientist, a “con” of some sort, or something similar. It was so bad that he was working it out through his subconscious while he slept, becoming completely unlike himself – laid-back, unopinionated, etc. And when he showed up at home looking like something wet the cat dragged in after pulling it through the mud, he just looked pitiful. In the end, he agreed gratefully to let Amy take control – again unlike him but showing his growth through the series. The other story line was Bernie’s new coworker, who both Raj and Stuart wanted to pair up with. Raj’s thought that he should get her because they were both Indian was hysterical, but poor Stuart is just…well, pitiful. In the end, they both acted like asses and neither got the girl. Surprise, surprise. LOL

On tonight’s episode, “The Explosion Implosion,” Wolowitz and Sheldon bond when they drive to the desert to shoot off a model rocket. Also, when Leonard’s mom, Beverly (Christine Baranski), finds a new best friend in Penny, it rubs Leonard the wrong way.

Find out why Leonard gets upset tonight on CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Dancing with the Stars, 9JKL, The Gifted, Halloween Baking Championship, Halloween Wars, Scorpion, & The Brave.

My favorite new show so far this season is NBC’s The Brave. I’m loving Mike Vogel as Dalton, but the dynamic of the whole team together is great. The premise is a lot of fun too. I’ve loved last week’s episode, where a bad-ass female CIA officer walked into the undercover CIA office in the Russian-stronghold portion of Ukraine to find her two coworkers shot to death and bad guys still in the office. She ended up taking them all out herself even after being shot. During the hour, she was kidnapped and stabbed, but she rocked it, able to keep herself pretty damn safe until Dalton and his team arrived. We also learned a surprising fact about Noah, in that he was top of his class at “spy school.” One thing I was disappointed about was that after the major cliffhanger of the premiere, where the bad guy drove the truck bomb onto the beach where the team had been hanging out and playing soccer with the kids, we didn’t jump back into that story line. In fact, we only got one mention of it at all, where we learned that there had been deaths and injuries of some of the civilians. It was kind of a letdown. Other than that, I’m really enjoying the show, as is my family.

On tonight’s episode, “The Greater Good,” after receiving intel that a serious player in dealing international arms, Ranier Boothe (guest star Andrew Howard), will be visiting Caborca, Mexico, Patricia makes a controversial decision that could lead to a big breakthrough. With Dalton’s team on the ground, they must find a weak link in Boothe’s men in order to carry out the mission. Meanwhile, Noah learns about Hannah’s complicated past in the field.

Find out more about Hannah’s past and see if Dalton’s team can take down some arms dealers tonight on NBC at 10:01/9:01c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Big Bang Theory, Dancing with the Stars, 9JKL, The Gifted, Halloween Baking Championship, Halloween Wars, Scorpion, & The Good Doctor.

Tonight, Supergirl returns from its holiday hiatus. When we last left off, CADMUS had unleashed its deadly Project Medusa virus, which had originally been created by Kara’s father as a precautionary weapon to kill all non-Kryptonians but has now been altered to eliminate all non-humans. A small-scale test of the weapon left Mon-El infected and Eliza looking for a cure. Supergirl tried to stop Lillian from dispersing more of the virus, but she arrived too late – Lena had already launched the rocket. However, it turned out that Lena was only pretending to help her mother and that she had replaced the virus with an inert gas. Elsewhere, J’onn was locked in a battle with Cyborg Superman and was forced to use his White Martian mutation to defeat him. At the end of the episode, Alex finally got a chance to come out to her sister, just before Kara was whisked off by Barry Allen and Cisco for her big DC crossover adventure.

How will Kara’s other-earthly adventures affect her now that she’s back on her own Earth? Can Lena be trusted – is there really such a thing as a good Luthor? Has J’onn finally accepted the fact that he’s going to become a White Martian, or will he continue to look for ways to fight the mutation? I really enjoy Supergirl because it is one of the lighter, more fun shows in The CW’s DC lineup. The series has already been renewed for a third season, so there’s plenty more fun adventures for Kara to come.

On tonight’s episode, “Supergirl Lives,” the story of a missing woman named Izzy moves Kara to investigate, even though Snapper Carr has told her to leave the matter alone. When Kara and Mon-El check out the last place Izzy was seen, they end up thrust through a portal to another planet, where the downtrodden are sold as slaves as part of a trafficking ring run by Roulette. Meanwhile, Alex blames herself – and her new relationship with Maggie – for her sister’s disappearance.

Find out how Kara gets home tonight on The CW at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Quantico, Man With a Plan, The Celebrity Apprentice, Timeless, Gotham, Lucifer, Jane the Virgin, Beyond, and The Young Pope.
