We now know when the DCTV shows are airing their midseason finales as The CW finally confirms the dates for Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, and Legends of Tomorrow. Several days ago, the network announced the return dates for their Arrowverse programs following the mandatory winter break as well as their other hit shows, such as the Archie Comics-based series Riverdale. For the DC small screen offerings, Supergirl, The Flash, and Arrow will be all back with brand new episodes in the second week of January, while Legends of Tomorrow still awaits its comeback date due to its chances of being moved to a new timeslot.
With that already marked on our calendars, we can now set the dates as to when all shows, including Legends, will air their equally anticipated midseason finales. Since the interconnected TV series block will return to its original programming in a single week come January, it also makes sense that all their midseason capper offerings also roll out in the same week.
That's exactly the case as THR is reporting Supergirl‘s fall finale is scheduled to air on Monday, Dec. 4 with The Flash and Legends following on Tuesday, Dec. 5. Capping it off is the franchise's original show, Arrow, debuting its season 6 midseason finale on Thursday, Dec. 7. Aside from the dates, The CW also released the synopses for each episode which you can read below:
SUPERGIRL “Reign” – REIGN CHALLENGES SUPERGIRL – Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) investigates a mysterious symbol popping up all over National City, tracing its origins back to an ancient prophecy and the mark of the World Killer, Reign (Odette Annable). Meanwhile, the tension between Lena (Katie McGrath) and Morgan Edge (guest star Adrian Pasdar) continues to build, causing James (Mehcad Brooks) to step in and offer up some protection, and possibly igniting a spark in the process.
THE FLASH “Don’t Run” – KATEE SACKHOFF RETURNS AS AMUNET – Amunet (guest star Katie Sackhoff) kidnaps Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) and puts meta-dampener handcuffs on her to keep her from turning into Killer Frost. Amunet tells Caitlin she needs her to perform a tricky medical task and if Caitlin fails, Amunet will kill her. Meanwhile, The Thinker (guest star Neil Sandilands) traps The Flash (Grant Gustin) in a speedster-proof prison. With the clock ticking, The Team doesn’t have the time or resources to track both Caitlin and Barry so Iris (Candice Patton) is forced to choose who to save.
DC’S LEGENDS OF TOMORROW “Beebo the God of War” – FOLLOW YOUR HEART – Rattled by recent events, the Legends dive into work which finds them investigating an Anachronism in a Viking settlement in the New World. The Legends realize that the Norsemen are worshipping an artifact as their god and are surprised by the artifact’s origin. For the first time, Sara (Caity Lotz) is worried that they might need back up when Damien Darhk (Neal McDonough) shows up. Meanwhile, Jax (Franz Drameh) finds a loophole that could potentially change history, but it is a risk he is willing to take.
ARROW “Irreconcilable Differences” – BLACK SIREN KIDNAPS LANCE – Quentin Lance (Paul Blackthorne) is kidnaped by Black Siren (Katie Cassidy) and Cayden James (guest star Michael Emerson), who are looking to trade Lance’s life for a weapon of mass destruction. Oliver (Stephen Amell) and Team Green Arrow must figure out a way to save Lance while still keeping the city safe.
Despite what can be considered as telling episode guides, the synopses are crafted in a way that they do not give anything away about the upcoming Arrowverse crossover, 'Crisis on Earth-X'. This year's annual offering will be a two-night, four-show special that will air a week before the midseason finales debut. On top of attending Barry and Iris' wedding, the heroes will find themselves going up against their alternate reality villain counterparts. While we currently don't know how that will pan out, the promo images for 'Crisis on Earth-X' released tease nothing short of a massive spectacle for fans.
The CW’s special ‘Crisis On Earth-X’ Arrowverse event will air on Monday, November 27 and Tuesday, November 28.
