Synopsis: The Flash, Arrow, White Canary, Stien, Franklin and Alex Danvers are in a concentration camp on Earth-X awaiting their fate. While Supergirl’s life hangs in the balance.
Review: Picking up from where things left off. The Flash, White Canary, Stien, Franklin and Alex Danvers find themselves the guests of a very inhospitable Nazi Concentration Camp where they have the misfortune to meet General Quentin Lance who orders their execution. Meanwhile back on Earth 2, Reverse Flash is preparing Supergirl for a deadly operation to remove her heart and give it to her doppelganger. Unbeknownst to him Felicity and Iris are scurrying around in the ventilation ducts of Starlabs making plans to save Supergirl.
Once again Crisis On Earth-X delivers with some new and interesting spins on characters that we all know and love but in Nazi and rebel form.
We get to meet The Ray who is played by the fantastic Russell Tovey, who many will recognize from the original UK version of Being Human in which he played the Werewolf. We also get the Earth-X version of Leonard Snart who on this version of Earth is a hero that goes by the name of Citizen Cold and works with the Freedom Fighters who happen to be led by General Winn Schott, who is a complete inversion of the more playful Winn from Earth One. We also get to see the Robot Red Tornado in action toward the end of the episode, which sees Flash and The Ray pulling all the stops out to try and prevent Red Tornado from fulfilling his mission.
The episode ends on a very dramatic note as Arrow leads an attack to clear a path so they can get to the device, which will return them to Earth 2. The episode leaves us with the question of whether or not Firestorms days are numbered?
Overall. This was a brilliant episode, which was filled with action, suspense and drama. I look forward to the conclusion, which I will hand over to Raissa to review.
