Supergirl Season 2 will connect to the rest of the Arrowverse shows, but the how and when is still a secret. We know it will be a complex work around. Surely it will be revealed by the 4-night midseason crossover event. But that too remains a mystery, as details on the crossover episodes are limited. Thankfully, at SDCC (via CBR), Marc Guggenheim offered a bit of a tease. The connective tissue driving all of these heroes together will be none other than the Girl of Steel.
“It’s an external threat from outside the shows that will involve Supergirl coming over to The Flash, then Arrow then Legends of Tomorrow.” Of course, Guggenheim didn’t divulge what the threat is. However, it sounds as though this threat will directly connect to the Girl of Steel. Could it be alien, Kryptonian even? We’ll have to wait and see.
Each show will be dealing with its own threat. The Flash will face off against Doctor Alchemy, Arrow is bringing on Prometheus (!), and the Legends are teaming with the JSA to battle the Legion of Doom. Supergirl’s over-arching threat and villain is unknown. Although, the character in the pod will offer plenty of mystery to the narrative this season. Cadmus will also play a part, but how much has yet to be specified.
Whatever the threat, it must be pretty formidable, considering Superman’s involvement. Whether or not he appears in the crossover is another mystery, that will hopefully be kept secret until it airs. Wouldn’t it be awesome if it was in relation to Superboy? Or is that too many super people for one super show to manage in its sophomore effort?
The Flash returns on October 4, followed by Arrow’s Season 5 premiere on October 5. Supergirl Season 2 premieres on The CW on Monday, October 10. Legends of Tomorrow will round out the line-up with its October 13 premiere.
