It feels like we’ve been waiting for the Flash/Arrow crossover for ages now, but that’s probably because time is relative and only Barry Allen knows how to make things speed up in just the right way. The first installment, “Flash vs. Arrow,” aired earlier tonight and pit our two main characters not only against a dangerous villain with glowing red eyes, but against each other (with Barry also having glowing red eyes for a while). Eek!

Without further ado, here are the five biggest and best parts of “Flash vs. Arrow.” And though the big bank fight in the beginning didn’t make the list, that was a pretty fun sequence.

The Big Fight
TV often has a tough time making big budget fight scenes look real, especially when dealing with superpowered characters whose rumbling skills outweigh those of the average person. But The Flash has a ton of money backing it, and this was a fight for the ages. The entire episode is basically Flash trying to prove that he is the master of his domain without having the discipline to match his superspeed. And Arrow proves this to him time and again, using his wiles and explosive, tranquilizer-filled weapons to always stay a step ahead of Flash. Of course, Roy G. Bivolo had Flash under his spell, which caused him to react blindly to just about everything, but he still puts Arrow through the wringer before the non-hero teams get there and save Barry from himself. Not quite sure why Flash did the whole “I’m going to run around you for a long time, sometimes while punching and sometimes not” instead of just delivering the most powerful clothesline imaginable, but it was still a good fight.
