Barry and Iris’ wedding brings the gang together, but things go awry when villains from Earth-X attack the ceremony. This is the finale to “Crisis on Earth-X”!
DC’s Legends of Tomorrow wraps up this year’s big crossover between Supergirl, Arrow, The Flash, and Legends. The Nazis are now on Arrow and the Flash’s world and have a bomb that can do serious damage but they’re still after Supergirl’s heart, which is so weird to be the goal of this entire event.
This episode brings everyone together in one final battle that sees Nazis running around and killing individuals indiscriminately. There’s a brutal aspect to it all but something that’s also heroic at the same time. There’s good, there’s bad, but the action is plentiful.
What’s more surprising is the death of the event and a return in some ways. While I expected the return once that character arrived the death threw me. Not only because it’s a death but who it is and who he represents considering it’s Nazis. That aspect is front and center during the funeral. While I don’t expect it to last, the event’s willingness to present pink triangles and yellow Stars of David make me respect the event for not washing over the reality of it all.
“Crisis on Earth-X” wraps up with what looks like repercussions that will continue on at least for the short term and isn’t an empty event that has no impact. The ending too was damn near perfect with… not going to surprise that. While there’s absolute flaws to the event, it’s one that has balanced everything well in 4 episodes that packed a hell of a lot in and give us lots of payoff.
