The crossover event of the fall TV season (for me anyway) is absolutely going to be when a story starts on The Flash and finished the next night on Arrow. Anticipation is high. To help with that, we have a gallery of images from the first of those two episodes, as well as the official synopsis down below.
I’m just gonna start it off with my favorite image in the batch. Barry Allen and Oliver Queen are holding one of Digger Harkness’ boomerangs on TV. That’s a sentence I never thought I’d be able to type.
And here’s the official synopsis of The Flash half of the crossover, titled, appropriately “The Flash vs. Arrow.”
PART ONE OF THE EPIC CROSSOVER EVENT WITH THE FLASH AND ARROW — Barry (Grant Gustin) is thrilled when Oliver (guest star Stephen Amell), Felicity (guest star Emily Bett Rickards) and Diggle (guest star David Ramsey) 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 Paul Anthony), 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 (Candice Patton) is furious when Eddie (Rick Cosnett) tries to get a task force to stop The Flash, Joe and Dr. Wells (Tom Cavanagh) agree the Arrow is a bad influence on Barry, and Caitlin and Cisco deal with a new team in S.T.A.R. Labs. Glen Winter directed the episode with story by Greg Berlanti & Andrew Kreisberg and teleplay by Ben Sokolowski & Brooke Eikmeier (#108).
The Flash “Flash vs. Arrow” airs on December 2nd.
