The Flash and Arrow crossover episode gets a trailer
James R | On 26, Nov 2014
One of the exciting elements of the autumn TV schedule has been the release of The Flash on Sky 1. Set in the same universe as Arrow (also on Sky) – and made by The CW too – the shared universe makes the presence of DC Comics on the small screen feel that bit bigger.
It came as no surprise, then, when The CW revealed that there would be a crossover between the two shows – whole episodes, rather than just the odd cameo (such as the appearance of Felicity Smoak in an earlier episode of The Flash, pictured above).
The episode in question is the eighth of each season, set to be broadcast in the UK on Tuesday 16th December.
The plot will see Arrow’s Oliver (guest star Stephen Amell), Felicity (guest star Emily Bett Rickards) and Diggle (guest star David Ramsey) come to Central City – home of Barry (Grant Gustin) – 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), whom has the ability to control people’s emotions and behaviour.
There are no prizes for guessing what happens next…
Here’s the trailer:
