The Arrowverse's annual crossover is well underway now, with the long-teased Crisis continuing to threaten the multiverse and a near-unstoppable team of heroes having been assembled to stop it. But they're struggling to do so - or at least that's what we've been led to believe in the first two installments that took place across episodes of Batwoman and Supergirl.

But alas, the search for the seven Paragons continue, with four of them (Supergirl, White Canary, Batwoman and the Kingdom Come Superman) already found and the identity of the others' remaining a mystery. And while that's been happening, The Flash and Mia Smoak have been busy attempting to revive the latter's father Oliver Queen using the Lazarus Pit, unable to accept that he's gone.

So far, Crisis On Infinite Earths has given us both an all-out war and a somewhat quieter character-driven piece. It's third installment however (an episode of The Flash), 'Crisis On Infinite Earths, Part Three' offered elements of both, pulling the trigger on the Crisis of Earth-1, all while serving as a midseason finale of sorts with an ending that will undoubtedly keep us all in suspense for the next month.

First, the negatives...
