    Hopefully this means Batwoman show will get some Batman villains to deal with. I really know jack crap about Batwoman so have no idea who she fights if they are her own villains.

    I do expect Joker and Harley are off limits since they are movie-level characters.

    THANK YOU! I was hitting my head trying to figure out what 90's Flash meant with the ring comment! I thought it had something to do with the Legion's ring. But a LAntern?!?! DAMN!!!!

    This episode was butt-loads of fun! Now to see the ending!

    I am going to repeat myself and say: CW DC is doing a so much better work at building their universe than the DCEU. I mean..come on! that handshake between Batwoman and Supergirl? F--k's sake! I wanna see the crisis already!!!!!!!

    With the Crisis talk, sounds like they are setting up next year's crossover already.

    Man, what a mess Arrow's part was.

    First off, that was the most awkward way of continuing (or ending) Slade's son's story arc from last season. Like seriously, what the flying fucking hell was that? If I had been watching these episodes on DVR I would swear that I missed an episode between last week's and this part. That was just a dreadful way to open up Part 2.

    On the other side of the spectrum, I did like the opening segment being narrated by Grant Gustin. That was hilarious.

    Then we have the Gotham City stuff. The city itself was way too clean looking, especially if Batman has been gone for 3 years. Like even the "bad area" looked too normal to be Gotham. I did love Barry's talk about "The Batman" before they arrived and when he called Ollie "The Original Vigilante." I did like how they were having that argument as to whether or not Batman is actually real, but apparently he IS real on Kara's Earth. Interesting.

    Of course, they have been hyping the hell out of Batwoman and she was in the episode for like 2 minutes, if that. Once again, WHAT THE FUCK?! She did jack shit. Oh, and then we have Shipp's Flash who did absolutely NOTHING!! Well, I guess he did reveal that Diggle IS John Stewart, so that's cool I guess.

    Back to the positive, I did love when our trio were in prison talking about how they should have handled the sitation and Kara says it will never happen again and then we get, "What was that about it never happening again?" Oh yeah, and the, "Yep, I apparently did sleep with her." lol

    I guess we now know what next year's crossover is going to be, Crisis on Infinite Earth's. I hope they plan it out to be epic and encompass all 500 of the CW shows out by then.

    The Arkham Asylum stuff was a mixed bag. We never got to see any actual Batman villains outside of whomever that masked dude was supposed to be (no idea since he looked generic with an orange jumpsuit on). Seeing Freeze's gun being used and Scarecrow's fear gas was cool. Also, "Nolan and Burton." Hahahahahaha.

    Now the fight between Ollie and Barry was pretty damn awesome due to the way it was choreographed and shot. Arrow might be hit or miss a lot these days, but god damn do they know how to film fight scenes. I wish they would do that with Flash. Oh hey, the Book of Destiny is written in Flash speak. Interesting.

    Where the hell is Nora in all of this? Lastly, did they seriously try to hide what was actually going on from Felicity? Are you guys friggin morons?!

    Overall, it felt very rushed with too much going on in such a short time span.

    Hilarity throughout "this isnt even your real face!"
    As i said before this crossover is bringing shit from Amell we have not seen in what...7 years of him being Oliver....i love it.
    Im all for fan service, but the Worlds Finest line was heavyhanded I will admit but all the other easter eggs landed for me.

    And John Being an Earth-90 Green Lantern...is it too much to hope that if Earth 90 is restored at the end to see even a glancing image of Dig as the Green Lantern? Probably is, but one can dream.

    Loving this crossover and the Legends reason for being absent as stated on their show...f'n hilarious

    And I may be in the minority as i am totally tired of Bat related ish period, but even with that, I am not clamoring for more Batwoman. I love Ruby Rose and I was curious to see what she would do, but based on last night's appearance, I would not be wanting her show. Now I know we will at least get a pilot so we will see her world and characters fully fleshed out and maybe that will change things for me, but at this point, I just don't see it being worthwhile. Ruby's delivery was kinda monotone as hell too.

    Yeah, I was not impressed with Batwoman at all, especially since they hyped her up for so long and she was there for like 2 minutes.

    Hilarious joke on Legends.

    Gideon "You missed calls from Barry Allen, Oliver Queen, and Kara Zor-el"
    Ray "Sounds like the annual crossover."
    Nick "ugh that's going to be a hard pass"
    :lol

    Really surprised how much is was. While sprinkles of Batman were mentioned before, he was pushed hard here.

    Good ep besides some small quibbles.

    I was cracking up. LoT just doesn't care and it's fabulous.

    I have a question. I started watching Arrow when it started airing on TV, then I don’t know what happened, I stopped watching for a while, I believe it was season 5. Now the show is in Season 7, do I have to watch season 5 all over again in order to understand season 7?

    If you saw all of season five then maybe you should start with season six before moving to seven
