The Flash has decided to take advantage of some of its ties back to Glee. Both Grant Gustin and Melissa Benoist were regular cast members on the musical drama. Add to that Jesse L. Martin and Carlos Valdes’ extensive musical backgrounds and it only seemed logical that Music Meister (another Glee alum, here played by Darren Criss), should bleed over onto Earth-1 and wreak some havoc.
If you find yourself breaking into song more than usual this week, don’t worry. It’s not some bizarre affliction you should turn to Dr. Google to look into—it’s musical crossover time! Supergirl is crossing over with The Flash because Music Meister (played by Darren Criss) has come to town and put Barry and Kara under his spell. Since the super friends are joining forces, it seemed only right that fellow #DCTV Couch Club writer Ashley Victoria Robinson and I team-up to discuss what happens when our heroes get stuck in a musical.
You might think you've encountered maestros of villainy before, but no one conducts a sinister symphony like the Music Meister. The callous crooner is set to appear in The Flash and Supergirl musical crossover, so it's a pitch perfect time to learn all about the rogue. And I promise I'll (mostly) stop with the alliteration, and I won't torture you by attempting to pen a ballad about the Music Meister's past.
When you think about a character like Supergirl, you imagine someone who is a paragon of virtue. Kara's not immoral and is often a representative of all things good, but "Exodus" proved she can slip a little. Maybe. Let's talk about how Kara and Alex broke the rules and whether either of them were wrong to do so.
Miscommunication. It's a thing and having super powers doesn't mean you're exempt from experiencing occasional instances of forgetting how to communicate with others. In fact, I think it's a shared negative trait by almost everyone on Supergirl. The lack of talking things out came to a head in "Homecoming."
Family is important to Chyler Leigh. Fittingly, it’s also really important to Alex Danvers, her character on The CW’s Supergirl. As Kara Zor-El’s adoptive sister, Alex has been the Girl of Steel’s most important connection to her family here on Earth. However, that dynamic is set to change with the long-awaited return of Jeremiah Danvers in tonight’s pivotal new episode, “Homecoming.” Played by Lois and Clark’s Dean Cain, the girls’ once presumed dead father returns to his family and the D.E.O.
Is it ever too late to celebrate Valentine's Day? No.*
*Please note we cannot predict how your loved one will feel about celebrating the holiday after it's passed.
You can't keep a Luthor down. Some families seem to have an unstoppable resilience written into their DNA, and that was on display in tonight’s episode, "Luthors." Lillian Luthor used Metallo to get herself out of prison and out of a trial and managed to manipulate Lena. Note the words "used" and "manipulate" in that sentence. They're methods Lillian wields like sharp weapons.
