Supergirl says, “Hey, it’s The Flash, you wanna give me a crossover?”

Illustration for article titled Supergirl says, “Hey, it’s The Flash, you wanna give me a crossover?”

Here’s what’s up in the world of TV for Monday, March 28. All times are Eastern.

Top picks

Supergirl (CBS, 8 p.m.): It’s here! It’s finally here! Listen up, nerds: Barry Allen is finally coming to National City. Thank goodness for alternate realities, right? By the way, it’s not just Supergirl and The Flash who are teaming up: We’ve got Silver Banshee and Livewire getting their tag-team villainy on. This will totally be great and not bizarre, right? Right, Caroline Siede? We don’t know if you can tell, but we’re a little on edge about this crossover.


Crazy Ex-Girlfriend (The CW, 8 p.m.): “Rebecca is determined to get her life on track so when Josh’s sister (guest star Tess Paras) asks her to be a bridesmaid, Rebecca decides to use her role to make things right with Valencia.” You know what? That sounds very healthy of Rebecca. Hey, we wonder how Paula reacts to all of this, especially when it comes to Rebecca trying to better herself. “Paula cannot accept Rebecca’s new mindset.” Paula. Paula, Paula, Paula. We’re going to need you to talk to Paula, Allison Shoemaker. Or sing to her, if that gets the point across better.

Blindspot (NBC, 10 p.m.): Ladies’ night continues with everyone’s favorite show about a tattooed amnesiac, Blindspot. “After a painting featuring one of Jane’s tattoos is heisted from a gallery, the team discovers Jane is the real target.” Ooh, art heist episode! We love it. Also, sorry about your damn luck, Jane.

Premieres and finales

The Fosters (Freeform, 8 p.m.): The Fosters has decided to end its third season as melodramatically as possible, and we say more power to the show for that. “In the wake of a tragic loss, the family pulls together and searches for answers. Callie makes a shocking discovery that has her questioning her loyalties. Nick gives Mariana an expensive gift, adding to her guilt about what happened between her and Mat. Meanwhile, Brandon tells his moms that Cortney has a child, and finds himself in a predicament after her ex-husband kicks Cortney out of their apartment.” In the immortal words of Happy Endings and Marry Me’s Derrick, “drama.”

Recovery Road (Freeform, 9 p.m.): “Maddie finishes her first 30 days in rehab, but is preoccupied after the house loses another member, in the season finale episode of Recovery Road.” Also, Recovery Road says goodbye to its first season with the help of two pretty cool Lauras in guest starring roles: Laura San Giacomo and Laura Bell Bundy. Recovery Road? More like Laura Lane, huh? Wait, don’t take our idea!

Hit The Floor (VH1, 10 p.m.): Hit The Floor also ends its third season tonight, with the episode “Possession.” “Derek’s hiding a secret and Ahsha’s world will never be the same; Sloane fights for her life; the fight for ownership of the Devils reaches a conclusion.” We’re assuming that, in a play on words, at least one of the first two plots will have to do with demonic possession. Please don’t tell us if that doesn’t happen to be the case.

Streaming pick

Vixen (CW Seed): In case you missed Vixen’s “animated” (hey, Arrow made the joke first) introduction to the CW/CBS DC universe, we’d say there are much worse ways to spend your time than with these webisodes. Like superheroes, crossovers come in all shapes and sizes.
