The CW Releases Intriguing Episode Descriptions For Arrow, The Flash And Supergirl


Earlier today, The CW released episode descriptions for instalments of Arrow, The Flash, and Supergirl which air the week beginning May 8th. With just a handful of chapters left in each series before they wrap up for the year, big things are on the way for our beloved heroes, something which is evident from each of the synopses below.

For starters, we have Supergirl. In “City of Lost Children,” James Olsen’s Guardians will take centre stage as he steps up to help save National City alongside Kara.

When an alien attacks National City, Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) and the DEO learn the alien is a Phorian, an otherwise peaceful race with telekinetic powers. Guardian (Mehcad Brooks) gets a lead on the Phorian’s address but instead of finding the culprit, he finds a very scared boy named Marcus (guest star Lonnie Chavis). Marcus will only trust James so it is up to Guardian to stop the attacks on the city. Rhea’s (Teri Hatcher) plan escalates. Ben Bray directed the episode with story by Robert Rovner and teleplay by Gabriel Llanas & Anna Musky-Goldwyn.

That sounds like it’ll be a pretty fun outing, but The Flash looks even better thanks to the return of Killer Frost and what appears to be a big step forward in the mystery surrounding Savitar. Whether we’ll know who’s beneath the mask by then isn’t clear, but Caitlin’s villainous transformation should definitely make for compelling viewing in “Cause and Effect.”

Barry (Grant Gustin) takes drastic measures to stop Savitar. Meanwhile, H.R. (Tom Cavanagh) continues to push Tracy Brand (guest star Anne Dudek) to design the trap for Savitar and Killer Frost (Danielle Panabaker) returns with an interesting proposal. David McWhirter directed the episode written by Judalina Neira & Lauren Certo.

Finally, there’s Arrow. With Prometheus’ identity now revealed, Adrian Chase is going to use his powers as District Attorney against Mayor Oliver Queen and that doesn’t sound good for the Green Arrow. Interestingly, “Honor Thy Fathers” will also provide a mystery in the form of an unknown corpse trapped in concrete.

Oliver (Stephen Amell) returns to the mayor’s office and faces one of his most pressing issues yet – the forced release of dozens of violent criminals prosecuted by Adrian Chase (Josh Segarra). Meanwhile, a crate is delivered to Oliver’s office containing a mysterious corpse encased in concrete. Laura Belsey directed the episode written by Marc Guggenheim & Sarah Tarkoff.

It appears as if we can expect this to be a huge week for The CW’s DC TV Universe then and it’s hard to decide which show sounds the most exciting. The war between the Emerald Archer and Prometheus has been pretty compelling thus far though, so Arrow might just have Supergirl and The Flash beat, at least for the immediate future.
