Is it October yet? Unfortunately, for those of us who are eagerly awaiting the return of Arrow and the arrival of The Flash, it isn't. But Stephen Amell was kind enough to share this excellently leggy tease of the planned crossover episode(s) of Arrow and The Flash:
That would be The Flash's left leg on the right, and Arrow's right leg on the left. And I'm a big fan of how worn both of their shoes look. As they should be... especially for The Flash. Arrow star Stephen Amell confirmed via Twitter that they're shooting Episode 8 of The Flash...
We knew previously that there was an Arrow/Flash crossover episode planned for later during The Flash's first season. In fact, there are two crossovers set to happen around that time, both taking place in Episode 8 (for The Flash and Arrow).
Spoiler alert about another Arrow character that's set to appear in The Flash:
So, what is this crossover going to be about? We'll have to wait and find out. But is it a coincidence that one of Arrow's villains will be dropping by The Flash in Episode 7? Does the Clock King's arrival in Central City somehow lead to Oliver Queen's arrival there one episode later? Or are they unrelated? Regardless, the crossover element is exciting, and it's going to be very interesting to see how often these two series' collide and affect one another.
It'll also be great to see how Oliver and Barry interact in Arrow and The Flash. Barry was very impressed by the Arrow when he appeared in Arrow's second season. That was before he got his superpowers, however, so it'll be fun to see what kind of dynamic develops between the two characters now that things have changed for the young scientist.
The Flash is set to premiere on Tuesday, October 7. Meanwhile, Arrow returns for Season 3 on Wednesday, October 8 on The CW.
