Candice Patton and Chris Wood are not playing Iris and Mon-El in the alternate reality where Barry (Grant Gustin) and Kara (Melissa Benoist) find themselves in after Music Meister (Darren Criss) put them in a coma in next week’s “The Flash” and “Supergirl” musical.

In an interview with TVLine, Patton revealed that she and Wood are actually lovers in Music Meister’s dream world. “Barry and Kara envision this world where Iris’ character and Mon-El’s character [named Millie and Tommy] are very, very deeply in love with each other,” said Patton. “And that obviously throws them off, because those are their love interests.”

But just like Barry and Iris’ relationship, as well as Kara and Mon-El’s relationship, Millie and Tommy’s romance also has its problems. According to Patton, Millie and Tommy are fighting for their love because their parents — who happen to be heads of rival gangs — don’t want them to be together. Millie, who is very much inspired by “Dick Tracy’s” Breathless Mahoney, is the daughter of a gay couple played by Jesse L. Martin and Victor Garber. Tommy’s father, meanwhile, is portrayed by John Barrowman.

In a different interview published by TVLine, Patton opened up about what it was like to film the musical. “It’s just fun for [me] to do something different, because Iris usually has that ‘girl next door’ thing going on,” the actress said. “Even the sets we’re in are so glamorous and kind of 1940s-style. It’s really fun.”

As previously reported, the first half of the musical crossover event sees Music Meister attacking Kara and putting her in a coma. Clueless about how they can wake her up, Mon-El (Wood) and J’onn (David Harewood) bring the comatose Girl of Steel from Earth-38 to Earth-2 to ask help from Team Flash. However, Music Meister surprises Barry (Gustin) in the second half of the crossover and puts him under a similar coma. Barry and Kara then wake up without their powers in an alternate reality created by Music Meister where life is like a musical and the only way to escape is by following the script.

The crossover event kicks off with Season 2, episode 16 of “Supergirl,” which airs on Monday, March 20. It continues Tuesday night in Season 3, episode 17 of “The Flash,” where the bulk of the action takes place. Both episodes air at 8 p.m. EST on The CW.
