Crisis On Infinite Earths
This review will contain spoilers! Stop now if you haven’t watched it!!!
Wow!!! That’s the only way to describe hour three of this crisis! This episode blew me away!! I don’t even know where to begin!
This episode started off like the others, you seeing worlds being destroyed with some cameos on those earths. One the major surprise cameos was Lucifer. I didn’t expect to see him, nor do I recall seeing him on any of the flyers that were floating around. Kudos for that surprise.
In a way I wish Oliver had went back, but I’m glad he didn’t, that would have made the episode too easy and predictable. Now his purpose is another story all together that we’ll have to wait and see. I really like how Diggle and Mia accepted that even though it was heartbreaking.
The death of Flash from Earth 90, the return of Vibe and the introduction of Black Lighting were all key components. The ultimate tear jerker came watching the waverider disappear. I liked seeing them still stand together acknowledging that the others will still defeat the anti monitor. I appreciated how they threw in Superman’s acknowledgement nod to Iris before they disappeared.
The biggest surprise to me had to be Lex Luther changing destiny at the last moment to replace Brandon’s Superman. Can we say double wow for that well played twist!?!?
One big question for me was answered here. We saw the flyers with Vibe, and wanted to know how that was possible. We got that answer with this episode. It was from the Monitor.
Overall this was the best of the three hours so far, even though they were all good. I enjoyed all the plot twist and the cameos in here. Now the only downside is that we have to wait until Jan 14th to catch the last two installments!!!!
