It's almost time for the Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover event. In celebration, The CW has released the synopses of the first three episodes and an epic movie-style poster that looks like a riff on Avengers: Endgame. There's only two weeks left for fans to get their first look at the highly anticipated annual event. It seems that the network has really outdone themselves this time around because everything looks massive.
Supergirl Episode 5.09 is titled Crisis on Infinite Earths: Part One. The Arrowverse episode is directed by Jesse Warn from a story by Robert Rovner and Marc Guggenheim wrote and teleplay by Derek Simon and Jay Faerber. From the sound of things, Melissa Benoist is going to have a lot of help before things start to get really bad. Since their worlds are in imminent danger, the crew is going to need all of the help they can get. You can read the synopsis below.
"The Kickoff To The Epic Television Crossover Event, Crisis On Infinite Earths - The Monitor (guest star LaMonica Garrett) sends Harbinger (guest star Audrey Marie Anderson) to gather the worlds' greatest heroes - Supergirl (Melissa Benoist), The Flash (guest star Grant Gustin), Green Arrow (guest star Stephen Amell), Batwoman (guest star Ruby Rose), White Canary (guest star Caity Lotz), The Atom (guest star Brandon Routh) and Superman (guest star Tyler Hoechlin) - in preparation for the impending Crisis.

Batwoman Episode 8 is titled Crisis on Infinite Earths: Part Two. The episode is directed by Laura Belsey from a script written Don Whitehead and Holly Henderson. Kevin Conroy is guest starring on this special episode and comic book fans are already excited to see what he brings to the table in this bonkers storyline.

The episode is directed by David McWhirter from a story by Eric Wallace and teleplay by Lauren Certo and Sterling Gates. Keeping with the spirit of the first two installments, the third chapter is packed with guest stars. Black Lightning is joining the team this time around for what should be an action packed episode.
