I don't know why they decided to destroy the Lazarus pits on Earth 1 if the writers keep bringing it back. Roy last season, now Oliver. I like all the references made in the episode such as Kingdom Come Superman mentioning he fought himself before which I assume is a reference to the Christopher Reeve Superman movie, Superman 3. I think the introduction of Kevin Conroy, where you hear the voice before seeing him was perfect. In fact I thought he sounded the most like the animated Batman during that first scene then he did in the rest of the episode. I do have some pluses and minuses about this episode. The integration of supporting characters was still done better on Crisis On Earth X. All of Supergirl's cast from episode 1 disappear in this episode. Iris shows up out of nowhere and thinks more about how Oliver dying early may mean Barry will live while showing no sympathy or mention of her friend Felicity, who just lost her husband. Still pissed at Oliver and Felicity hogging in on their wedding, no doubt. The Rory (Heatwave) in this episode is from another Earth but he is exactly like the Legends Rory. Loved Leonard Snart as the voice of the Wave Rider's computer. Constantine just shows up. Barry Allen has had little to do so far, presumably he will be featured tomorrow on The Flash episode. Mia is back on Earth 1 but notifies no one that Oliver has died. TVline just published the dates of when shows return after the upcoming break. The Flash doesn't resume until February 4th after Arrow ends. Is this significant? The other Arrowverse shows resume in January. I know the Arrow finale will be proceeded by a tribute/clip show but there is no new Flash episode the prior week when the Mia pilot airs. Maybe the CW didn't want to air one new The Flash episode and then take another week off. As for problems hearing the episode on the CW. I assume the CW is like the other networks and transmits it's shows via satellite to its affiliates. Everyone should be seeing the same quality sound and picture unless the local station's equipment has a problem. There are usually East and West Coast feeds. The East, Central, and Mountain Time Zones use the East Coast feed.
