We’re a week out from the highly anticipated Arrowverse crossover and we’re starting to see a lot of new content!
In the latest episode of Supergirl, we saw an Easter-egg filled post-credit tag setting us up for next week’s three-night crossover event! This particular teaser of the “Elseworlds” episode features John Wesley Shipp as an alternate version of The Flash akaJay Garrick and newcomer LaMonica Garrett as Mar-Novu, a.k.a. The Monitor.
The Arrowverse showrunners say that this post-credit tease will also appear at the end of this week’s episodes of Arrow and The Flash.
In an interview with EW, the showrunners explained that the original plan was to only air it at the end of The Flash, but then they [the showrunners]realized that not all of their fans follow all three shows appearing in the crossover.
Because the audiences are coming to it from our separate shows, we wanted something that [connects them together].
So what exactly happens in this post-credit scene? Well, you can either watch it above or continue reading. In 60 seconds, give or take, we’re no longer in Crystal City or anyplace we recognize. Instead, we find ourselves on a ravaged Earth-90, where the ground is scorched and dead bodies of our beloved superheroes are everywhere. The only one person who apparently survived the destruction? Jay Garrick’s The Flash.
We see him crawl toward the mysterious book that we see The Monitor’s holding in many promo stills. But The Monitor picks it up before Garrick can reach it and says, “You failed.”
When The Flash asks him “Why are you doing this?”, The Monitor simply replies, “You did this to yourself, and now all of you will perish.” He opens the book, the Flash speeds away, and we’re left to wonder what exactly happened and what will The Flash do to make everything right in the world again.
So set your alarm. It all begins Sunday, Dec. 9, with The Flash at 8 p.m.
