The Flash:
 
Previously, we discovered there are 53 Earths and Earth X is the last one, the planet no one wants to go to because the Nazis won WW2 and Hitler lived into the '90s. Maybe with help from Earth-1 Eobard Thawne, who is wearing Harrison Wells' face again. Earth-X Kara and Oliver are married and Kara has absorbed too much solar radiation. She's dying and needs a heart transplant from our Kara. The Nazis have taken Kara, put the rest of the heroes in a prison/concentration camp on Earth X, and captured Star Labs. Oh, and Earth-X Prometheus was Tommy Merlyn!
