After Season 2 of The CW’s ARROW gave us some of the best genre television of recent times, the show’s third season and the debut of sister show THE FLASH have both also been hitting plenty of the right beats. In a move that has fans of both shows and both central characters bouncing in excitement, ARROW and THE FLASH are set to crossover in a two-episode event that begins this very evening over in the US. And yes, The Arrow and The Flash will be butting heads in the crossover. Ahead of tonight’s episode of THE FLASH, The CW has released a new extended trailer for what we can expect to see from the two-part extravaganza.
The first part of the crossover will take place during THE FLASH’s eighth episode, titled FLASH VS ARROW. The official word for that episode reads:
Barry is thrilled when Oliver, Felicity and Diggle come to Central City to investigate a case involving a deadly boomerang. Excited about teaming up with his friend, Barry asks Oliver if he’d like to help him stop Ray Bivolo (guest star Patrick Sabongui), the meta-human Barry is currently tracking. Bivolo causes people to lose control of their emotions and has been using that skill to rob banks. Unfortunately, the superhero partnership doesn’t go as smoothly as Barry expected. When Oliver tells Barry he still has a lot to learn, Barry sets out to prove him wrong by attempting to stop Bivolo alone. However, when Bivolo infects Barry and sets him on a rage rampage, everyone is in danger, and the only one who can stop him is The Arrow. Meanwhile, Iris is furious when Eddie tries to get a task force to stop The Flash, Joe and Dr. Wells agree that The Arrow is a bad influence on Barry, and Caitlin and Cisco deal with a new team in S.T.A.R. Labs.
Following that, ARROW will bring the crossover to a close with an episode titled THE BRAVE AND THE BOLD. The synopsis for the final episode of this two-parter reads:
Oliver, Arsenal and Diggle track down the location of a boomerang-wielding killer named Digger Harkness (guest star Nick Tarabay) but are surprised when they come face to face with an A.R.G.U.S. team. Diggle asks Lyla why A.R.G.U.S. is involved but she defers until Harkness attacks the building, killing several agents and targeting Lyla. The Arrow joins the fight and gets help from an old friend – The Flash. Harkness manages to get away and Oliver teams up with Barry again to find him before he can get to Lyla. When Harkness plants five bombs in the city that are timed to explode at the same time, both teams must come together to save the city.
The first part of this crossover will air tonight in the US, with the second part airing tomorrow. UK-wise, we’re expected to see both episodes around the turn of the year.
