Last week The CW teased its fans with a brief look at a teaser of the upcoming The Flash episode called “Duet.” However, we didn’t get to see the full version until today. With a little help from Supergirl, stars Grant Austin and Melissa Benoist have confirmed singing parts in the episode. Is it me or are comic book shows going a little too far with this stuff? Crossovers are awesome and I appreciate them greatly but a musical? Isn’t that just a tad askew? I don’t know. Just seems weird. But if you’re into musicals…..
The Flash musical episode is set to air on March 21. Titled “Duet,” the episode is described as follows:
“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.”
