‘The Flash’/’Supergirl’ EP Talks Impact Of Musical Crossover

Supergirl The Flash Musical Crossover ImpactYesterday it was reported that the character of Music Mesiter would officially be the big bad for the upcoming musical crossover between Supergirl and The Flash. Greg Berlanti, the show-runner of all the four DC TV shows on The CW, confirmed that casting hasn’t started yet for the character.

In the latest edition of Matt’s Inside Line on TV Line, a fan asked for some scoop on the musical crossover and Matt Mitovich revealed the following statement from executive producer and show-runner Andrew Kreisberg who also confirmed that the crossover will start on Supergirl and what kind of impact the crossover will have on both shows afterwards.

“What I always loved about what Joss Whedon would do with [Buffy The Vampire Slayer’s] ‘Hush’ or ‘The Body’ is he’d have these very special episodes, but they were intrinsic to the ongoing storytelling. So when we get to the musical episodes, both Barry and Kara will find themselves at pivotal crossroads on their respective series, and the experience of going through the musical will have a great impact on both series moving forward.”

“Supergirl Lives” — (8:00-9:00 p.m. ET) (TV-PG, V) (HDTV)

KEVIN SMITH DIRECTS; ROULETTE RETURNS — Kara (Melissa Benoist) is moved by the story of a missing woman named Izzy (guest star Harley Quinn Smith) and decides to investigate despite Snapper Carr’s (guest star Ian Gomez) order to leave it alone. Kara takes Mon-El (Chris Wood) with her to the last place Izzy was seen and the duo find themselves thrust through a portal to another planet, Slaver’s Moon, where the downtrodden are sold as slaves. The leader of the trafficking ring is none other than Roulette (guest star Dichen Lachman). To make matters worse, Slaver’s Moon has a red sun, which means Kara and Mon-El are stripped of their powers and stuck on the planet with no way home. Meanwhile, back on Earth, Alex (Chyler Leigh) blames herself for Kara’s disappearance, fearing she’s become too focused on her new relationship with Maggie (guest star Floriana Lima) and too complacent in watching out for her sister. Kevin Smith directed the episode with story by Andrew Kreisberg and teleplay by Eric Carrasco & Jess Kardos (#209). Original airdate 1/23/2017.”

“Borrowing Problems from the Future” — (8:00-9:00 p.m. ET) (TV-PG, V) (HDTV)

Confused about Barry’s hesitation to stop Plunder, Wally (Keiynan Lonsdale) decides to step in as Kid Flash. Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) offers Julian (Tom Felton) a job.
