Grant Gustin’s ‘The Flash’ Pays Homage To Arrowverse Crossover ‘Invasion!’

Last night’s episode of Grant Gustin’s The Flash featured an unexpected tie to a previous Arrowverse crossover event.

Realizing that Cisco Ramone is having an understandably difficult time accepting the inevitable death of Grant Gustin’s Barry Allen, the Scarlet Speedster enlists his friend on a mission to help Ramsey Rosso find a cure for his fatal form of cancer, hoping to groom Ramone as the next Team Flash leader. With the help of Harrison “Nash” Wells, Grant Gustin’s The Flash and Cisco acquire a vial of serum that could theoretically duplicate Rosso’s healthy cells and eradicate his cancer.

The serum was taken from McCulloch Industries, leaving Grant Gustin’s The Flash and Cisco curious as to how the company could develop such advanced technology. However, Nash reveals that the company had actually uncovered the technology from the homeworld of the Dominators during “some invasion.”

Of course, fans might remember that the Dominators were the primary antagonists to Grant Gustin’s The Flash and the rest of Arrowverse heroes in the crossover titled “Invasion!” Released in 2016, the three-part event was the first Arrowverse crossover to feature characters from each CW superhero show, including Grant Gustin’s The Flash.

The Flash continues next week with the episode “Kiss Kiss Breach Breach” and you can read The CW’s official synopsis below:

DANNY TREJO GUEST STARS – Cisco’s (Carlos Valdes) faith in his ability to fill Barry’s (Grant Gustin) shoes as Team Leader is upended when he learns of a shocking murder. Meanwhile, Killer Frost (Danielle Panabaker) trusts no one except herself to hunt down the dangerous Ramsey Rosso (guest star Sendhil Ramamurthy). Menhaj Huda directed the episode written by Kelly Wheeler & Joshua V. Gilbert (#605).

The Flash stars Grant Gustin as Barry Allen / The Flash, Candice Patton as Iris West, Danielle Panabaker as Caitlin Snow / Killer Frost, Carlos Valdes as Cisco Ramon / Vibe, Tom Cavanagh as Harrison Wells, Jesse L. Martin as Joe West, Danielle Nicolet as Cecile Horton, and Hartley Sawyer as Ralph Dibny / Elongated Man.

The Flash airs on Tuesdays at 8:00 p.m. on The CW. Stay tuned for the latest news on the Grant Gustin series and the next Arrowverse crossover event.
