The huge DCTV crossover started last night with Supergirl, and has more or less taken the thunder from the mid-season finales of each individual show that will be participating in the crossover, them being The Flash, Arrow, Legends of Tomorrow, and Supergirl. The Flash in particular, will be experiencing a ‘shift’ in what will be the driving force behind every episode when the show returns from it’s hiatus. Executive producer Andrew Kreisberg told reporters today at a screening for the Invasion! crossover that we should expect some distance from Flashpoint, compared to before, as every episode seemed to be a direct result of Barry saving his mother.
“There’s a villain coming up who’s another one of the husk villains that was created by Alchemy, so there’s that to deal with, but the midseason finale kind of creates a new problem for our heroes that they weren’t anticipating — something that they’ve never faced before. And it’s so big we’re actually considering changing the saga sell from talking about Flashpoint to talking about that, because that’s what’s driving a lot of the episodes, actually. Flashpoint won’t loom as large as the threat that presents itself in 309.”
Lots of things have changed as a result of Barry’s decisions, from Diggle’s daughter Sara now being Diggle’s son John, who might eventually become the new Green Arrow, to Caitlin becoming a meta human named Killer Frost. Many of these changes have brought up some in fighting amongst the Flash team, and hopefully, they’ll be able to overcome it before it gets too bad for them.
