The CW has released the first clip from their upcoming crossover of “The Flash” and “Arrow” which you can check out in the player below! Starting tonight, the crossover begins with “The Flash” and its eighth episode, “Flash vs. Arrow.” Featuring a story by Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg and a script by Ben Sokolowski and Brooke Eikmeier, “Flash vs. Arrow” is directed by Glen Winter and is officially described as follows:
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 S.T.A.R. Labs.
Then, the story continues in the eighth season three episode of “Arrow,” “The Brave and the Bold.” Scripted by Marc Guggenheim and Grainne Godree and directed by Jesse Warn, “The Brave and the Bold” is officially described as follows:
Oliver, Arsenal and Diggle track down the location of a boomerang-wielding killer named Digger Harkness (guest star Nick Tarabay) but are surprised when they come face to face with an A.R.G.U.S. team. Diggle asks Lyla why A.R.G.U.S. is involved but she defers until Harkness attacks the building, killing several agents and targeting Lyla. The Arrow joins the fight and gets help from an old friend The Flash. Harkness manages to get away and Oliver teams up with Barry again to find him before he can get to Lyla. When Harkness plants five bombs in the city that are timed to explode at the same time, both teams must come together to save the city.
