Happy Fall, everyone! The weather’s getting cooler, the leaves are changing color, and, tonight, we received synopses for all four DC CW shows! What a glorious time of year!
The first week of full-on Flarrow-verse kicks off with Supergirl on Monday night. Here’s the synopsis for the season 2 premiere, ‘The Adventures of Supergirl’, directed by Glen Winter with story by Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg and teleplay by Kreisberg and Jessica Queller:
THE CW HAS A NEW HERO AND SHE’S BRINGING SUPERMAN WITH HER — When a new threat emerges in National City, Kara/Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) teams up with her cousin, Clark Kent/Superman (guest star Tyler Hoechlin), to stop it. Kara is thrilled to have family in town but it leaves Alex (Chyler Leigh) feeling a bit left out. Meanwhile, Hank (David Harewood) and Supergirl are stunned by the pod that came crashing to Earth.
Next up on The Flash is the second half of the Flashpoint arc, appropriately titled ‘Paradox’. Here’s the synopsis for the episode, directed by Ralph Hemecker and written by Aaron and Todd Helbing:
THE AFTERMATH — Barry (Grant Gustin) realizes the effects from Flashpoint are much greater than he thought. Meanwhile, Barry meets new co-worker Julian Albert (Tom Felton) and is surprised by Julian’s immediate disdain for Barry.
An interesting thing to note here: When Tom Felton was cast, it was announced that his character will be named Julian Dorn, not Albert. Does this have anything to do with the fact that Dr. Alchemy’s real name in the comics is Albert Desmond…or is this merely a coincidence?
On Wednesday, Arrow wastes no time jumping into action with ‘The Recruits’, directed by James Bamford and written by Speed Weed and Beth Schwartz. Here’s the synopsis:
SUIT UP — Oliver’s (Stephen Amell) new recruits for Team Arrow are Curtis (Echo Kellum), Wild Dog (guest star Rick Gonzalez) and Evelyn Sharp (guest star Madison McLaughlin). Unfortunately, the Green Arrow’s training methods prove to be too much for some of them to handle. Meanwhile, in the flashbacks, Oliver’s initiation into the Bratva continues.
Finally, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow will be premiering on Thursday with ‘Out of Time’ (no, not The Flash episode), directed by Dermott Downs and written by Marc Guggenheim, Phil Klemmer, Greg Berlanti, and Chris Fedak. Here’s the synopsis:
LOST AND FOUND — GUEST STARRING STEPHEN AMELL — After the defeat of the immortal villain Vandal Savage and the exposure of the corrupt Time Masters, a new threat emerges. Dr. Nate Heywood (Nick Zano), an unconventional and charming historian, is thrust into the action. After making a shocking discovery, Nate seeks out Oliver Queen (guest star Stephen Amell) for help in finding the scattered Legends. Once reunited, the Legends continue their new mission to protect the timeline from temporal aberrations – unusual changes to history that spawn potentially catastrophic consequences. Their first stop is 1942 to protect Albert Einstein from being kidnapped before the Nazis destroy New York City with a nuclear bomb. Meanwhile, Ray (Brandon Routh) notices that Sara (Caity Lotz) has a mission of her own, which leads them both to face her nemesis, Damien Darhk (guest star Neal McDonough). Victor Garber, Arthur Darvill, Dominic Purcell and Franz Drameh also star.
