Arrow (S06E08) "Crisis on Earth-X, Part 2"

Before I start saying anything, I have to admit I’ve fallen out of the Arrowverse, because I haven’t been watching either The Flash or Legends of Tomorrow since the previous season. Furthermore, I’ve never seen a single episode of Supergirl. Having said that, the linking episodes between these series are indeed confusing for me. I didn’t even know Iris and Barry were marrying, for instance!

What I can understand, though, is that we now have an Earth X, run by Nazis. Also, guess who came from Earth X? Tommy (Colin Donnell). He used to be one of the best characters of Arrow that were cut off way, way too soon. The Tommy from Earth X wasn’t alive long either, so it looks like these directors are repeating their mistakes, but it was nice to see him nonetheless.

I recognized another face, Alex (Chyler Leigh), who was once upon a time a really lovable doctor on Grey’s Anatomy. 

Back to other things … Arrow, The Flash (Grant Gustin) and Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) had a fight with EVIL Arrow, EVIL Supergirl and Eobard Thawne? Confusing. Not to say that there were too many characters in this episode. They tried fitting everyone together to make something whole, but it felt too much.

Needless to say … This could have been more interesting to me have I watched the entire crossover. Obviously. It’s not my wish to overly criticize this. Yet … I simply fell out of it all.

I’ve heard that Olicity got married in the crossover? I sadly have no intend to check that out by watching more episodes from the crossover, oops, so I hope they adress this in the next Arrow episode. I’ll comment on it then!
