Tscc i am not going to watch the 4 part dominator story, I think you will, so how about a brief summary in the flash thread, and any details I might need to stay up with flash show. just answer me in flash thread.
Well, you actually don't need to watch Supergirl 2x08 at all for the crossover. It only started it in its last scene (maybe one and a half minute long), when Barry and Cisco showed up through a portal at Supergirl's place and asked her for help. That scene was then repeated also in the Flash episode 3x08, which actually is part 1 of the crossover called "Invasion!". I continues with Arrow 5x08 "Invasion!" as part 2 and concludes with LoT 2x07 "Invasion!" as part 3. I've finished the whole thing now with the LoT ep 2x07 and all I can say is, that it was just a lot of fun to watch. And look at the ratings thread, it looks like the ratings confirm that. So which eps do you want to skip? The whole crossover? Or only the Arrow and LoT ones? I think you should watch the whole thing and just consider it a two-hour speacial of The Flash. They deal with the issues of Team Flash, especially the ramifications for the whole "Arrowverse" created by Barry's alternative Flashpoint timeline, throughout the whole crossover and resolve some of that in the LoT crossover finale. But if you insist on skipping, it's your loss, so you may jump directly to the reviews for each of the three episodes:
The Flash: "Invasion!" Review
Arrow: "Invasion!" Review
DC's Legends of Tomorrow: "Invasion!" Review
