I'm going to agree with Heat Wave: "Best Wedding Ever."
In part one of the four-part epic crossover event, kicking off last night with Supergirl delivered such an entertaining episode and set a great tone for the next episode.
In the parallel world, Earth-X, where the Nazi regime has ruled the planet, and a hooded archer dress in black called Dark Arrow kills the American loyalists and others that are part of the resistance. Dark Arrow takes on The Guardian and after a couple of seconds of battling kills him. He joins his team as they are about to take a machine that will make sure they spread their hatred. Dark Arrow orders his team but changes when his partner Overgirl give her orders.
Meanwhile, there's a wedding coming with Iris and Barry, and they wonder if the others (Supergirl, Arrow and the Legends) have RSVP their invitations. We get to see some kickass fighting scenes with our favorite DC TV heroes, but Kara and Alex get a moment during their bond time and decides to go.
Iris and the ladies are having their time together getting their nails done while drinking wine and catching up. Barry and Oliver have their Groom/Best Man talk about settling down, which was very good and funny with Barry making a joke that Oliver didn't laugh at all. During the dinner, with everyone there, Iris' father gives such a heartfelt speech about how they helped him find his way back to love again. The dinner had other great moments one being Alex and Sara drinking up and having a one night stand. And the other Oliver talking to Felicity about settling down but she doesn't want to and walks away.
As the wedding begins, Kara sings, and just as the wedding starts, Overgirl kills the minister. After a fascinating and entertaining fight scene, Kara injures Overgirl during the fight, and the Nazis retreated, but our heroes captured Dark Arrow's partner Prometheus.
Dark Arrow and Overgirl discuss the plan and meets with the yellow speedster, who discuss their next step. Both Dark Arrow and Overgirl unmasked themselves and reviles to be the parallel universe doppelgangers of Oliver Queen and Kara and the yellow speedster is Barry's presumed deceased nemesis Eobard Thawne, the Reverse-Flash.
"Crisis on Earth-X Part 1" was nothing but stunning. The first part of the crossover event delivered such a kick-ass start with such thrilling to humoring moments, mostly coming from Heat Wave and even the moments with Sara and Alex, for which I'm down with that relationship if anyone has any objections. The drama of Oliver and Felicity was outstanding, and I assume that it'll carry well for the next episode. I think this might be one of the best crossover events than the one last season. The writing was excellent, and the performances go to the equal amount of everyone's effort. Overall, I give this episode 9/10.
