supergirl the flash

On March 28th, Supergirl comes face to face with the Worlds Fastest Man when Grant Gustin guest stars as the Flash in an unprecedented superhero event only on CBS! ‘The Flash’ originated as a spinoff of ‘Arrow’ and both shows continue to weave their stories together with characters from one show often popping up on the other, but CBS’ ‘Supergirl’, despite being created by the same team behind those two shows, was considered off-limits since it was on a separate network.  But those differences were ironed out and now Grant Gustin is zooming onto the March 28th episode of ‘Supergirl’.

Here is the brief episode description:

“Kara gains a new ally when the lightning-fast superhero The Flash (Grant Gustin) suddenly appears from an alternate universe and helps Kara battle Siobhan, aka Silver Banshee, and Livewire in exchange for her help in finding a way to return him home.”

Italia Ricci guest stars as Siobhan Smythe/The Silver Banshee, while Britt Morgan plays Livewire.  Melissa Benoist stars as the title hero. Here is a photo featuring both villains in full costume:
