I know everything from Arrowverse but I am not following Supergirl. Only checked it's leaked pilot. Do I need to see the whole Supergirl till the crossover or is the basic knowledge of Supergirl + pilot episode enough to understand the crossover episode?

    Nah. All you really need to know is that Supergirl's gained a bad reputation after going a bit crazy (due to red kryptonite). There's a lot of other plot going on that you'll be unaware of (Kara's ill-chosen romantic triangle) but nothing you'll notice or really care about. – user7812 Apr 11 '16 at 19:52
  • To be honest, I'm not sure you need to watch the crossover episode to get any additional story for The Flash, so you could give it a miss entirely. – Anthony Grist Apr 13 '16 at 12:08
  • @AnthonyGrist - Agreed. It's a completely self-contained episode from his perspective. He doesn't bring anything back with him, physically or emotionally. – user7812 Apr 15 '16 at 12:14

Yes. The episode doesn't go into much lore, and the basic premisses are explained to the Audience via explanations to The Flash/Barry.

The biggest issues would be:

How/Why Livewire became Livewire, why Silver Banshee hates Kara, and the bulk of the Kara/Jimmy UST.

But Callista Flockhart's character sums those up nicely (well, condescendingly) as well.
