If you like Batman references and hate elevators, then this was the week for you. Welcome to “Watch the Arrowverse,” the weekly show where we take a look at some of the Easter eggs, important moments, and theories from all of CW’s DCTV superhero shows. On this episode, we’ll be looking at week 2 of “Supergirl”, “The Flash”, “Legends of Tomorrow” and “Arrow.” As we’ll be discussing the heroic details from all of those shows, we’re putting up the spoiler signal.

#5: Teschmacher and Luthor Reunite
“Supergirl” (2015-)

Eve was ecstatic to work with Lena… but did you know that a Teschmacher has worked for a Luthor before. Their meeting is a throwback to the original “Superman” film, where Teschmacher served as Lex Luthor’s assistant. But she was more than just a snarky secretary. When the man of steel was drowning because of Lex’s kryptonite necklace, Teschmacher dived in, pulled him to safety and stole a kiss. With Lena committed to being better than her brother, Teschmacher probably won't have to choose between Luthors and Kryptonians, but she will have to choose a repairman for that hole Supergirl made in the elevator shaft.

#4: The Babel Protocol
“The Flash” (2014-)

Barry’s new suit has several functions that are walking Easter eggs, but we had to go with “the babel protocol.” In the comic storyline “The Tower of Babel”, Batman creates the protocol to come up with weaknesses for each member of the Justice League just in case they turned to the dark side. In the show, the protocol is used to blow up the suit for an almost identical reason. Both storylines see the plan hijacked by a villain, but have different endings. On Team Flash, Cisco goes on to date night with Gypsy whereas Batman’s actions get him voted out of the Justice League.

#3: The Greatest Show on Earth One
"Legends of Tomorrow" (2016-)

The cast didn’t hide their connections to “Titanic” this week, but they did tiptoe around one phrase. This week, the gang visited a 1900’s Barnum and Bailey’s circus. The ringmaster himself, played by “Titanic” alum Billy Zane, tries to come up a catchy slogan for the circus and just misses saying the “Greatest Show on Earth” - twice! This comic slip-up was actually necessary. In 2006, the circus filed a $5 million dollar lawsuit after Sephora used a variation of the famous slogan for a holiday campaign. To avoid the legends having to fight real lawyers, Zane never says the actual phrase. At the end of the day, we still enjoyed their workaround.

#2: The Origins of Robin?
"Legends of Tomorrow" (2016-)

There are always easter eggs to be found in the background of the Legends’ adventures through time. As the crew enters Barnum’s circus, a group of acrobats can be seen in the background. If you look closely, you’ll notice the costumes look awfully familiar. Batman fans will recognize the getup as the Flying Graysons’ trademark outfit and what Dick Grayson - A.K.A. the first Robin - originally wore to fight crime. Although we haven’t seen the leader of the Teen Titans in the Arrowverse yet, Rip has alluded to Batman in the past. Dick Grayson will be joining the fray of DCTV when “Titans” premieres on the CW in 2018.

Here are some of the best lines from this week’s episodes:

“Less likely to get jiggy on the dancefloor”

“We accept the charges!”

“Something even the time bureau is afraid of…”

“Secret jobs”

#1: Outsiders Connection
"Arrow" (2012-)

The small nation of Markovia could potentially open up the Arrowverse. In the comic series “Batman and the Outsiders”, the caped crusader needs to go to Markovia to save ally Lucius Fox. When diplomatic reasons prevent the Justice League from getting involved, Batman goes in solo but ends up forming a new team there called the Outsiders. Though he eventually leaves the team behind, other heroes keep the alliance going. We know that a few members of the original Outsiders like Katana and Black Lightning exist in the Arrowverse. On top of that, Katana once referred to herself and Oliver as outsiders. Could Oliver take a trip and assemble a new version of this squad in the future? It would be a great way to bring Black Lightning into the crossover mix once his show premieres on the CW later this season.
