The Arrowverse is about to get its next big event in "Crisis on Earth-X," a four-part crossover that sees Barry Allen and Iris West's wedding interupted by an attack on all the Arrowverse heroes, by evil versions of themselves from the fascisitic dimension known as "Earth-X."
Before we get to that epic event, however, the producers of the Arrowverse want to get you caught up on every show in the lineup, so that you'll understand the status quos of each individual show in the Crisis on Earth-X crossover. The team-up event will no doubt also advance subplots of each respective show (while also influencing one another), so unless you already tune in to all four, some catch up is probably needed...
