'Supergirl' Post-Credits Scene: Every "Elseworlds" Easter Egg and Superhero
The Arrowverse is headed for an epic crossover this month, and last night, Supergirl helped set the stage for the upcoming “Elseworlds” event. A post-credits scene at the end of Supergirl Season 4 Episode 8 rewrote reality, introducing a world where Oliver Queen and Barry Allen’s lives have switched. The scene also featured a number of other heroes, who you may not have recognized.
Here’s every Easter Egg you might have missed from the Supergirl post-credits scene.
Spoilers for Supergirl Season 4 Episode 8 and the “Elseworlds” crossover below.
The action moves from Supergirl’s Earth-38 to Earth-90 in the end scene of “Bunker Hill.” Earth-90 has been destroyed, and the bodies of fallen heroes cover the ground. DC Comics fans will recognize at least some of them, including Stargirl, Vibe or Huntress, Firestorm, Jesse Quick, helmets for one of the Hawks and The Ray, Captain Cold, and the Green Arrow in his Smallville suit.
Watch the video and then read on for our shot-by-shot breakdown.
Vibe or Huntress and Firestorm
An unidentified hero.
More dead superheroes.
Is that Jesse Quick?
Green Arrow is some old/new clothes.
The only hero left alive is this Earth’s Flash (John Wesley Shipp in his super suit from The Flash series from 1990 to 1991). The Monitor (LaMonica Garrett) picks up a book from the ground before Flash can make it to it.
“You failed,” The Monitor tells him. When The Flash asks why he’s doing this, The Monitor replies, “You did this to yourself. And now, all of you will perish.”
The Monitor opens the book. As some type of energy comes out of it, The Flash runs, presumably to another Earth, since he is part of the “Elseworlds” crossover. Previews and photos (like the one below) show him working alongside Supergirl, Stephen Amell’s Flash and Grant Gustin’s Green Arrow.
“You will not do to this Earth what you did to mine,” Shipp’s Flash says in the “Elseworlds” trailer (above). He’s presumably talking about what’s seen in this tag scene.
The same preview shows The Monitor offering Jeremy Davies’ John Deegan “godhood” in the form of what looks like the same book from Earth-90. Deegan is the one responsible for rewriting Oliver and Barry’s realities in the crossover.
The Flash kicks off “Elseworlds” on Sunday, December 9 at 8 p.m., followed by Arrow on Monday, December 10 at 8 p.m. and concluding with Supergirl on Tuesday, December 11 at 8 p.m. on The CW.
