Synopses For Supergirl And The Flash Season Premieres Released


With the next “super season” set to commence in just under three weeks, it’s only understandable that The CW pulls out all the stops in order to assure that viewers come back for another helping. And usually when we’re that close to any specific episode airing, synopses are bound to surface online, effectively bringing some minor spoilers along with them. In this case, that rule applies to fan favorites Supergirl and The Flash.

First, let’s talk about Supergirl, since that particular show will be the first from the Arrowverse to make its fall debut. In “Girl of Steel,” we’ll see the titular heroine face the existential crisis we’ve been expecting ever since the first footage from season 3 was shown at San Diego Comic-Con back in July. Still, we don’t expect her to be down in the dumps for too long since more recent promos have hinted at the Kara Zor-El we all know and love.

Additionally, we can’t help but ponder the “bold move” Lena Luthor will make. Although any possible villainous turn by her likely won’t be made until later in the season, it’s entirely within reason that we could see some seeds planted here. After all, there are many of you out there just waiting for her Luthor genes to kick in.

Anyway, here’s the synopsis for said episode:

DREAM A LITTLE DREAM OF YOU — Kara (Melissa Benoist) deals with the loss of Mon-El (Chris Wood) by focusing all her energy on being Supergirl and the mysterious new threat against National City. Alex (Chyler Leigh) confesses a secret to Maggie (guest star Floriana Lima) about their impending nuptials. A citizen of National City has a mysterious connection to Kara, and Lena (Katie McGrath) makes a bold move. Jesse Warn directed the episode with story by Andrew Kreisberg and teleplay by Robert Rovner and Caitlin Parrish (#301).

Then, over on The Flash, we’ll see how the S.T.A.R. Labs crew have adjusted to life without the Scarlet Speedster in their midst. Obviously, he’ll return before long – but as a changed man, something we’ve been hearing about in recent memory. Regardless of whatever lies ahead, there’s absolutely no way we’ll miss “The Flash Reborn.”

Here’s what we know so far:

COMING HOME — With Barry (Grant Gustin) in the speed force, Iris (Candice Patton), Kid Flash (Keiynan Lonsdale), Joe (Jesse L. Martin) and Vibe (Carlos Valdes) have taken over protecting Central City. However, when a powerful armored villain threatens to level the city if The Flash doesn’t appear, Cisco makes a risky decision to break Barry out of the speed force. However, the Barry that comes out isn’t the same Barry that went in. Glen Winter directed the episode with story by Andrew Kreisberg and teleplay by Todd Helbing & Eric Wallace (401).

Supergirl returns for its third season on Monday, October 9 on The CW, with The Flash bringing up the rear on Tuesday, October 10.
