‘Elseworlds’ Pays Homage To ‘Smallville’ In An Awesome Way

Elseworlds Arrowverse Batwoman SmallvilleThe new Arrow, The Flash & Supergirl Elseworlds crossover pays homage to Smallville in a unique way.

*SPOILER WARNING FOR THE FLASH EPISODE OF THE ELSEWORLDS CROSSOVER*

Smallville is the series that started all of this super hero hype on The CW. If Arrow is the series to launch all recent DC Comics tv series, then Smallville is like their great grandfather. During tonight’s Elseworlds episode of The Flash, Barry and Oliver swap bodies and need to go to another universe to get Supergirl and Superman’s help. When they enter earth-38’s Smallville a familiar theme song plays in the background. That’s right folks, Remy Zero’s Save Me plays as The Flash and Green Arrow get to the Kent farm in Smallville.

Here is the synopsis for the first chapter of the Elseworlds event:

EPIC ELSEWORLDS CROSSOVER KICKS OFF TONIGHT — When Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) and Oliver Queen (guest star Stephen Amell) wake up one morning and realize they have swapped bodies with each other, the two set off to find out what disturbed the timeline to cause such a shift. However, things quickly go from bad to worse when they present their case to Team Flash and the gang doesn’t believe them. Barry and Oliver realize they need Supergirl’s (guest star Melissa Benoist) help and travel to Smallville on Earth-38 where they end up meeting Kara’s cousin, Clark Kent (guest star Tyler Hoechlin), and intrepid reporter, Lois Lane (guest star Elizabeth Tulloch). LaMonica Garrett guest stars as The Monitor. Kevin Tancharoen directed the episode written by Eric Wallace & Sam Chalsen.

The 2018 Elseworlds crossover starts with a special episode of The Flash on Sunday, December 9 and continues with Arrow on Monday, December 10. The three-night event will then conclude with Supergirl on Tuesday, December 11.

All three entries will air at 8:00 p.m. ET on their respective nights.
