Worlds Finest - S1-E18

Trivia: Cat says "you look like the attractive yet non-threatening, racially diverse cast of a CW show." This episode crosses over with The Flash, from the CW (this show was broadcast on CBS). From season 2 onwards Supergirl moved to the CW, to join the other Arrowverse shows.

The Faithful - S3-E4

Trivia: James and Winn find a meeting of Coville and his followers to be "a little cult-y." Melissa Benoist plays Rachel Koresh, the wife of cult leader David Koresh, in the miniseries Waco, a dramatization of the Waco siege - the 1993 standoff between the ATF and FBI and Koresh's Branch Davidians that lasted 51 days and resulted in 86 deaths.

Supergirl Lives - S2-E9

Continuity mistake: As they are fleeing the alien base, Supergirl and the others run towards the portal, Winn activates it and jumps through. In a following shot (after a 'friendly' alien helps them), he is standing behind Supergirl again. (00:32:00 - 00:32:35)

Answer: For one, it's usually cheaper to film in Vancouver because of the tax breaks. But all the CW Arrowverse shows (with the exception of "Black Lighting") are/were filmed in Vancouver. So it makes it easier and cheaper for sharing set designs, crossovers, etc ("Black Lightning" filmed in Vancouver during its crossover). Originally "Supergirl" wasn't part of the Arrowverse when it was on CBS, but it was too expensive to produce and wasn't reaching the wider audience the CW shows had. So CBS moved it to its sister company, The CW.
