The much anticipated musical episode of The Flash is finally here. Ever since Glee alums, When Grant Gustin and Melissa Benoist, were cast as Flash and Supergirl, fans were hoping if they would ever incorporate their singing skills. What’s also fun is that another person from Glee, Darren Criss, is playing the Music Meister. He has the ability to make everybody sing in song. Apparently Mon-El and Hank Henshaw come to Flash’s Earth to get Supergirl out of a coma caused by the Music Meister. Then the Music Meister puts the Flash into the same coma, with Kara and Barry waking up in an alternate musical reality. Watch the preview below.
The Music Meister put Supergirl and Flash in a musical film, and it looks those two have to sing their way out. It kind of resembles the style and look of the recent La La Land, which is also a homage to old Hollywood musicals. Other characters from other shows like Professor Stein and Malcolm Merlyn will also join in on the fun.
This looks like a very fun episode, that will most likely end up being a fan favorite. After an important episode of The Flash, one has to wonder how this episode will integrate what’s currently going on the show.
The official synopsis is as follows
“Duet” — (8:00-9:00 p.m. ET) (Content Rating TBD) (HDTV)
DARREN CRISS (“GLEE”) GUEST STARS AS THE MUSIC MEISTER IN THE FLASH AND SUPERGIRL MUSICAL CROSSOVER – Barry (Grant Gustin) and team are surprised when Mon-El (guest star Chris Wood) and Hank Henshaw (guest star David Harewood) arrive on their Earth carrying a comatose Supergirl (guest star Melissa Benoist) who was whammied by the Music Meister (guest star Darren Criss). Unable to wake her up, they turn to Team Flash to save her. However, the Music Meister surprises The Flash and puts him in a similar coma, one that Team Flash can’t cure. Kara and Barry wake up without their powers in an alternate reality where life is like a musical and the only way to escape is by following the script, complete with singing and dancing, to the end. Dermott Downs directed the episode with story by Greg Berlanti & Andrew Kreisberg and teleplay by Aaron Helbing & Todd Helbing (#317). Original airdate 3/21/2017.
