Monday: Supergirl

“Medusa” starts the crossover off with an interrupted Thanksgiving dinner. Both Barry and Cisco Ramon/Vibe (Carlos Valdes) stop by Kara’s apartment to recruit her to join their fight. Although Kara is part of their universe, she’s not part of their “universe.” Producer Greg Berlanti and his team used the DC Comics idea of the “multiverse,” so Kara lives on a different Earth. Barry accidentally visited Kara’s Earth in the season one episode “World’s Finest.”

“Medusa” was mostly a straight Supergirl episode, a Barry and Cisco didn’t arrive until the very end. They tried several times to open the inter-dimensional portal, but weren’t successful until after Kara finished her fight with Cadmus.

Supergirl airs on Monday, November 28 at 8 p.m. ET. Here’s the full episode description:

Eliza (guest star Helen Slater) comes to town to celebrate Thanksgiving with her daughters. Alex (Chyler Leigh) decides it’s time to come out to her mother; Kara (Melisa Benoist) is shocked when Eliza suggests Mon-El (Chris Wood) has feelings for her, and Winn (Jeremy Jordan) and James (Mehcad Brooks) consider telling Kara the truth about the Guardian. Meanwhile, CADMUS unleashes a virus that instantly kills any alien in the vicinity so Kara enlists an unexpected ally – Lena Luthor (Katie McGrath). The epic superhero crossover kicks off tonight when Barry Allen (guest star Grant Gustin) and Cisco Ramon (guest star Carlos Valdes) seek Kara’s help with an alien invasion on their Earth.
