That eagerly anticipated comic-book crossover between The CW’s two hottest properties is finally happening, with the first pictures and synopsis for Barry Allen and Oliver Queen’s small screen team-up.
Kicking off in The Flash Episode 8, ‘Arrow Vs Flash’, and continuing in Arrow Season 3 Episode 8, ‘The Brave And The Bold’, a synopsis for the first part of this Batman/Superman-style odd couple team-up has made its way online:
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 the Arrow is a bad influence on Barry, and Caitlin and Cisco deal with a new team in STAR Labs.
The Flash Episode 8, ‘Arrow Vs The Flash’, will air 2 December 2014 on The CW in the US and later on Sky 1 in the UK. For more on the comics that have inspired the show, pick up our 100 All-Time Greatest Comics bookazine now!
