The original Guardian complete with a shield more clearly based on a
policeman's badge…



Don't laugh at me, guys… I never realized that the Guardian's shield was based
on a policeman's badge. (Come to think of it, I don't know much about the
character at all!)

To be fair, the similarity between the Golden Age and 'Supergirl' versions of the characters is almost non-existent, beyond 'wearing a helmet and using a shield'.
 If Oliver Queen is the 'stealth Batman' for the CW shows, then Guardian is more like their 'stealth Dark Knight/heavily body armored Batman'. 
The nods to Captain America in 'Guardian-X's costume were a nice touch.

Eric Sofer: "I will miss Victor Garber's acting chops."

I will, too. He's leaving Legends of Tomorrow because he's going back to Broadway for the Hello, Dolly! revival in January, 2018.

I wasn't paying attention while streaming off the CW website, and started with ARROW's part 2. Which turned out to be kind of perfect, since it's pretty much how I experienced every crossover in the Eighties.

So what you are saying is that you were confused when Magnum was arrested for murder and Jessica Fletcher had to clear his name.

Or the 'Happy Days' kids were going to be forced into a country bumpkin 'shotgun wedding', and Richie ran back to Milwaukee to call the A-Team...oops, I mean, the cast of 'Laverne and Shirley'.
(Usually, they filmed 'new endings'  of very quick exposition for episodes like that when they went into syndication).

Did I miss the explanation for how the Nazis knew Kara would be on Earth 1?

We all did!  She didn't even decide to go until the last minute!

Based on the dialogue, they had been surveilling both Earths before they attacked. They had two missions that happened to coincide: 1) They wanted to conquer Earth-1, which is why Reverse-Flash was involved; and 2) Dark Arrow wanted to capture Supergirl to get a replacement heart for Overgirl.

Well, it was entertaining, regardless of the usual flaws that the CW shows have. 

I'm glad Reverse-Flash is back. The comics make it clear that he's very, very hard to kill, so I don't see why the TV show(s) can't follow suit.

I still yearn for a regular Superman CW series with Tyler Hoechlin. He looks and acts the part well enough. Just keep "Jimmy Olsen" (sic) out of the show. And put Hoechlin in a Superman suit that at least looks more like what Superman is wearing in DC comics today. 

Meaning: no more "cape straps," a yellow Superman-emblem-shaped belt buckle, traditional Superman boots, shorter cape, brighter red cape, boots, emblem.

Oh, a "spitcurl" would be good too.
