Supergirl and The Flash musical episode description revealed
Ahead of the episode’s premiere later this month, The CW has officially released the episode description for the Supergirl and The Flash musical crossover episode!
Things kick off during Supergirl episode 2.16 on March 20 which is titled “Star-Crossed” and described as follows:
“A new villain (guest star Teri Hatcher) comes to National City, putting Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) on high alert. Meanwhile, Winn’s (Jeremy Jordan) girlfriend, Lyra (guest star Tamzin Merchant), gets Winn in trouble with the law. Maggie (guest star Floriana Lima) attempts to help Winn but old loyalties get in the way. The Music Meister (Darren Criss) attacks Supergirl.”
And then continue with The Flash episode 3.17 which is titled “Duet” and is where all the singing starts. It is set to air on March 21 and is described as follows:
“Barry (Grant Gustin) and team are surprised when Mon-El (guest star Chris Wood) and Hank Henshaw (guest star David Harewood) arrive on their Earth carrying a comatose Supergirl (guest star Melissa Benoist) who was whammied by the Music Meister (guest star Darren Criss). Unable to wake her up, they turn to Team Flash to save her. However, the Music Meister surprises The Flash and puts him in a similar coma, one that Team Flash can’t cure. Kara and Barry wake up without their powers in an alternate reality where life is like a musical and the only way to escape is by following the script, complete with singing and dancing, to the end.”
Dermott Downs directed the episode with story by Greg Berlanti & Andrew Kreisberg and teleplay by Aaron Helbing & Todd Helbing.
Crazy Ex-Girlfriend creator and star Rachel Bloom has written one of the songs that will be performed by Gustin and Benoist in the upcoming crossover, titled “Super Friends.” In addition, the Oscar/Tony/Emmy-nominated songwriting team of Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (Dear Evan Hansen) have written a song for the episode titled “Runnin’ Home to You,” which will be performed by Gustin in the episode.
Title heroes Grant Gustin and Melissa Benoist are confirmed to have singing parts in the episode along with Jesse L. Martin, Victor Garber, John Barrowman, Jeremy Jordan and Carlos Valdes.
