Sunday night’s Supergirl was loaded with a lot of huge surprises for Kara Danvers and her pals as they adjusted to the brand-new truth of Earth-Prime, but there were surprises in shop for fans. The biggest surprise may have been not the expose of some version of Winn Schott who isn’t the Winn who went into the future, but that as far as the heroes of Earth-38 understand, there is no Multiverse. For the heroes of Earth-Prime the only truth is their own. All others are gone.
Brainy’s remarks on the worlds prior to Crisis on Infinite Earth
This surprise came when Brainy discussed that he ‘d searched for indications of other truths utilizing vibrational frequencies – which is how they were able to find the other worlds prior to “Crisis on Infinite Earths” – but there was just absolutely nothing there. The implication of that little bit of details is that Earth-Prime is it and that only the people who exist there are those restored. When it’s found that an entire bunch of individuals from various now-eliminated words in some way managed to end up part of Earth-Prime, this seems to be rather confirmed.

Here’s the thing, though: there is a Multiverse. Fans have seen it as, in the last minutes of “Crisis on Infinite Earths” viewers saw the various brand-new Earths with their heroes, consisting of Earth-2 with Stargirl and Earth-9 with Titans. The Multiverse certainly lives having been born-again thanks to Oliver Queen’s sacrifice. It just seems that Earth-Prime is locked away from it, something that could suggest that the other Earths similarly do not know the Multiverse exists, either. The idea that Earth-Prime, a minimum of, does not understand about the Multiverse was validated on Monday by “Crisis” showrunner Marc Guggenheim who published on Twitter that “The Earth Prime heroes don’t understand there’s still a multiverse. Shh. Do not tell em.”
Multiverse to be discovered by Earth-Prime’s heroes
Now, with fans mindful that there’s a Multiverse, it’s not impossible that Earth-Prime’s heroes will ultimately discover it (or discover themselves found by another reality). One of the important things that was of specific interest in Supergirl’s midseason best, “The Bottle Episode”, was that one world’s Brainiac-5 had really bottled his universe and waited from “Crisis“. Earth-Prime’s Brainy handled to persuade him not to open that bottle (and thus destroy that world and Earth-Prime while doing so) by keeping in mind that he and his good friends were really wise and would find out a way to bring back that bottled world if he would simply give them the time to do so. While that is not exactly the like offering to find a Multiverse, it wouldn’t be too tough to believe that in their efforts to safely open that bottle they may stumble upon a brand-new vibrational frequency and therefore find the Multiverse.
For now, though, Earth-Prime believes they are alone and there’s something a bit tragic in that. One of the big concerns fans have had considering that “Crisis” is what the status of fan-favorite Earth-2 characters are, consisting of not just Arrow’s Dinah Lance but The Flash’s Harrison “Harry” Wells and Jesse Quick. While it’s likely that, a minimum of in the case of Harry and Jesse, they live and well on that Earth-2, with the Multiverse being a secret from Earth-Prime, it’s possible that Team Flash just believes their beloved friends and teammates are gone permanently.
