Elseworlds Crossover: Why Does Alex Have It Out For Kara?

Arrowverse Crossover, Alex, Kara

The bond of sisterhood is everything in Supergirl. So, why is Kara locked up in the STAR Labs pipeline in the Arrowverse crossover?

Barry, Oliver, and Kara will deal with an alternate reality and new friends in a day. Barry and Oliver become each other while Kara loses her sister, Alex. Help somebody! We’ll need larger TV screens to capture the Easter eggs in this year’s Arrowverse crossover.

A promo dropped last week of our third hero, Kara Danvers (Melissa Benoist), behind bars. Dressed in her Supergirl suit, Kara gets locked up at STAR Labs on what appears to be Earth-1. To make matters worse, her jailer is her sister, Alex (Chyler Leigh). She tries to talk Alex around, but her human sister is adamant that Kara is a threat. Also, she’s wearing a black House of El symbol.

What the hell is going on here? Why is Alex suddenly afraid of Kara? How doesn’t she see Kara as her sister? Alex and Kara have had a close relationship since their friend Kenny was murdered, and they solved the case. So, why is Alex suddenly afraid of a sister she alleges she doesn’t know? This crossover is getting stranger with every promo. Also, could it have to do with Alex and Kara’s dad?

It looks like Kara will maintain her memories of her original life-like Barry and Oliver do with their lives. Whatever the reason for Alex’s sudden fear and anger towards aliens, there’s got to be an explanation, right? Indeed, it’s an alternate reality where Kara’s a threat. Maybe someone screwed with time (NORA! BARRY!) until reality became warped. Who the frick knows?

The crossover begins December 9 with The Flash and will run to December 11, ending with Supergirl. Please note the dates are for The CW’s airing of the crossover.

The Elseworlds crossover event is the fifth crossover in the Arrowverse since The Arrow vs. The Flash.
