A DC TV universe timeline guide: Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl

Robbert de Koeijer Sep 23, 2016

Wondering how all the DC universe TV spin-offs, crossovers and webseries fit together? We have the answer...

In October 2012, Us network The CW launched the first season of Arrow, after wrapping up no fewer than ten seasons of Superman origin show Smallville a year before. Arrow was a completely new take on the DC Comics character Green Arrow, in a new universe that had nothing to do with Smallville or its version of Oliver Queen/Green Arrow. The series proved quite the hit for The CW, and a second season renewal inevitably followed. In season two, we were introduced to forensic scientist Barry Allen, better known to DC Comics readers as The Flash. Arrow got a third season, The Flash got his own TV show with great success, and the live action shared DC Comics universe on TV was born. And with it the question: how does it all fit together?

Arrow Season 4 Blu-Ray Release Date And Featurettes Revealed

See Full Gallery Here

While the fourth season of Arrow proved to be highly divisive among fans, it’s probably safe to say that many will still want it to adorn their shelves. And for those who do, you’ll be glad to know that on August 30, you can bring home Oliver Queen’s latest adventures on either Blu-Ray or DVD.

Something that I found to be cool about this upcoming set is that it actually includes an episode of The Flash, so you can enjoy both parts of the mid-season crossover in case you elect to buy only one series. Furthermore, several bonus features focus on the likes of Hawkman, Hawkgirl, and Vandal Savage, which seems appropriate given that said crossover served as a backdoor pilot for DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.

For more information on what to expect, you can check out the full press release below,

Director Lexi Alexander got to do something on 'Supergirl' she's never done before
Lexi Alexander knows her superheroes. To some, she even is a superhero. After directing Punisher: War Zone in 2008 and this year’s “Beyond Redemption” episode of Arrow, she’s set her sights on Supergirl. Tonight will premiere Alexander’s first foray into directing a female superhero as Supergirl takes on a serial killer in “Truth, Justice, and the American Way.” HitFix Harpy spoke with Alexander by phone last week about working with Melissa Benoist, what superhero project Lexi hopes to take on next, and what it’s like to be at the forefront of the push for diversity in Hollywood. Image Credit: CBS Hitfix Harpy: How did you get involved with Supergirl? Did you reach out to them or did they reach out to you? Lexi Alexander: It was kind of a mix. Andrew Kreisberg — he's the showrunner — he tracked me down in the first place. Even for Arrow.

Arrow season 4 episode 12 review: Unchained

Between the Lazarus Pit, Nanda Parbat and the return of an old friend, the latest Arrow season 4 episode is swimming in deja-vu...

This review contains spoilers.

4.12 Unchained

If there's one salvageable thing to come out of last season's Ra's al Ghul storyline, it was Nyssa. Previously a love interest for Sara and a foil for Oliver, Nyssa has quietly become one of Arrow's most intriguing figures, a person outside of Team Arrow, outside of Malcolm's new League of Assassins, operating largely in the background.

This gives her a certain edge over the rest of our heroes as, while still being humanised at various points thanks to her aforementioned romance with Sara, she's often more level-headed than anyone else on the show. Her mission to take down Malcolm is one that makes complete sense after what we've witnessed, and her manoeuvrings to get there were revealed across

Arrow season 4 episode 11 review: A.W.O.L.

Arrow season 4's latest filler episode delivers two sidekick-centric storylines for Felicity and Diggle...

This review contains spoilers.

4.11 A.W.O.L.

Until now, Arrow has always, disappointingly, made the struggles of its supporting characters all about Oliver. When it was confirmed that the outcome of Darhk's attack would leave Felicity wheelchair-bound, it was a significant worry that her paralysis would simply be an excuse for the show to backtrack on Oliver's attitude adjustment. He doesn't handle tragedy well and, despite his relatively lighthearted demeanour this season, old habits die hard.

And to a certain extent this can be expected given the fact that Oliver is the show's solo protagonist. But at a certain point fans attach to the supporting cast and, on Arrow especially, the hero becomes one of the least interesting ingredients in the recipe.

What a relief, then, that the episode decided to focus

Arrow season 4 episode 10 review: Blood Debts

Arrow returns with an episode that hinges on whether you cared about that mid-season cliffhanger...

This review contains spoilers.

4.10 Blood Debts

So Felicity isn't in the grave, which was obvious to anyone paying attention to dates, and we're still no closer to finding out it's true occupant. Our enjoyment of Blood Debts relied on how much we cared about that cliffhanger, and with the combination of obvious writer trickery to throw us off the scent over the break and an episode that was busy with several non-Felicity plotlines to set up and pay off, it's hard to know how to feel about the outcome.

The attack in the mid-season finale has consequences, which is nice, but it's again very unlikely that Felicity will actually remain paralysed for the rest of her time on the show. Sadly, primetime Us dramas just aren't there yet (but they're free to

Arrow season 4 episode 9 review: Dark Waters

Arrow's fourth mid-season finale delivers a cruel cliffhanger for Oliver and the gang. Here's our review of Dark Waters...

This review contains spoilers.

4.9 Dark Waters

It's a rule on Arrow that no one can be happy for more than three weeks. Whether it's self-fulfilment, becoming a capable superhero or finding contentment with a loved one, it's all going to get taken away in the most horrendous, violent way possible, and it's all in aid of our sick, twisted viewing pleasure.

Because, though the end of this episode was extremely cruel, you can't deny that it was also the capper to an excellent episode full of personal stakes and a connection to the main themes running through season four in a way last year never grasped. You can track Oliver's evolution from the moment he rode off into the sunset to now, and also more or less

Arrow season 4 episode 8 review: Legends Of Yesterday

This year's Arrow/The Flash crossover was hugely entertaining, with the Star City gang injecting some lightness to proceedings...

This review contains spoilers.

4.8 Legends Of Yesterday

What does one do when you're Greg Berlanti (and team), building an empire of modern superhero shows that has become increasingly interwoven, to the point where the first two series are being used to launch a third? Unsurprisingly, the most sensible place to do this was in the now-annual crossover event, somewhat inconveniently placed the week before each individual series' mid-season finale.

The first half of this Legends two-parter consisted of a lot of set-up done incredibly well, cashing in on the expectations of Flash viewers for more humour and camaraderie. Legends Of Yesterday, then, gets to do some more drama, finishing off the Kendra origin story and moving a few more chess pieces into place.

Arrow season 4 episode 7 review: Brotherhood

Arrow finally devotes an episode to exploring John Diggle's four-season-long storyline in this week's Brotherhood...

This review contains spoilers.

4.7 Brotherhood

John Diggle is more important to Arrow than fans tend to give him credit for. He's mainly kept in the back, wheeled out to keep Oliver in check whenever he's being particularly 'difficult' and, as the only minority character on Team Arrow, that's often been a problem. But this year he's got a costume and a secret identity and, with Brotherhood, an episode more or less dedicated to exploring his four-season-long storyline.

The fact that the through-line of Diggle's brother, Deadshot and Hive has been going since the pilot just shows how little effort Arrow puts into dealing with the character on a week-to-week basis but, probably by accident, it does mean that episodes like this have a ton of history to lean on.

Arrow's Olicity experiment is paying surprising dividends, as season four episode Lost Souls proved...

This review contains spoilers.

4.6 Lost Souls

We all know that one of the first rules of television writing is that getting your two main characters together, short of giving someone a baby, is the biggest show-killer there is. It ruins the suspense and forces the writers to give at least some focus to indulging fans of said couple, while all the while coming up with new and creative ways to add drama to the mix. Getting Oliver and Felicity together at the end of last season, then, was a worrisome move.

Not for those clamouring for them to live happily ever after, of course, but hardcore shippers tend to overlook the bigger picture when it comes to their chosen Otp being together or not. There's nothing particularly wrong with that approach, it's

'Arrow' Recap: Ray Palmer is Back

'Arrow' Recap: Ray Palmer is Back
"Lost Souls" like "Haunted" and "Beyond Redemption" was another Arrow episode setting up Legends of Tomorrow. However, like both of those previously mentioned episodes, this was more than a spin-off set up. The events effected the main characters of Arrow in meaningful ways. "Lost Souls" brought Ray back from the (kinda) dead but the episode was really about Felicity. Specifically, Felicity trying to figure out how her relationship with Oliver has changed her and if that's a good or bad thing.

Here's what we made of the now-defunct Constantine crossing over with on Arrow in season four episode, Haunted...

This review contains spoilers.

4.5 Haunted

I didn't watch Constantine. I feel like it's best I get that out in the open before attempting to write about Haunted because, as much as I enjoyed the episode and as excited I am about the precedent it sets for the shared universe in general, I have zero prior knowledge of the character aside from one pilot episode half-watched over a year ago. But, yeah, Constantine was in an episode of Arrow, guys. What a world we live in.

First and foremost, I was kind of impressed with how the episode wasn't entirely constructed as a way to bring in the character, but rather the character was slotted into this point in the season pretty seamlessly. Yes, he was given a fair bit

Arrow season 4 episode 4 review: Beyond Redemption

The Sara saga continues in this week's Arrow episode, an hour elevated by some strong performances...

This review contains spoilers.

4.4. Beyond Redemption

Quentin has posed a problem for Arrow writers since the start of the show. They want him to be an antagonist, but not a villain. They want him to be morally ambiguous, but not unlikable. They want many of our main characters to be at odds with him, but also for his emotional moments to land with the audience. These things are all at odds with each other and, as with this week, they're also more often than not happening at the same time.

But without the character, I suspect some of Arrow's strongest episodes just wouldn't be as strong. Beyond Redemption, for example, isn't particularly remarkable on paper, but is lifted by several performances that range from near-over the top to surprisingly nuanced.

Arrow: 10 Questions We’re Asking After Beyond Redemption

The CW

This week’s episode of Arrow was called Beyond Redemption, yet it continued to prove that the show very much isn’t that.

Arrow Season 3 was a low-point for the show, but the start to the fourth year is already making up for it and then some; it may be the strongest, most consistent opening bunch of episodes they’ve delivered so far.

You could even use the death and revival of Sara Lance to draw a parallel to the show’s quality. It took a big dip following her death, as that hung over the show for an entire season, and it was impossible to shake the feeling of misery. Now she’s back, and while her own storyline is pretty dark, it’s coincided with the show getting back to its best as well.

Beyond Redemption, then, continued that run of form. We returned to Oliver’s Mayoral campaign,
