Hard as it is to believe that October is nearly upon us, a return to The Flash and Arrow more than smooths over the changes. And speaking of changes, see for yourself what Flash has to offer in a new synopsis for Season 3 premiere “Flashpoint,” and ditto for the kickoff of Arrow Season 5's “Legacy”!

First and foremost, the October 4 synopsis for The Flash Season 3 return sees Barry adjusting to the big timeline changes, and seemingly starting to lose his own powers in the process:


Barry (Grant Gustin) is living his dream life – his parents are alive, he’s asked Iris West (Candice Patton) on a date and he can finally be a normal guy as Central City has another speedster, Kid Flash (Keiynan Lonsdale), running around saving the city. When Barry starts forgetting parts of his old life, the Reverse Flash (guest star Matt Letscher) taunts his nemesis and tells him that there will be serious repercussions for Barry and the ones he loves if he continues to live in this alternate universe. In addition to losing his memories, his powers will also start to fade. When disaster strikes, Barry must decide if he wants to continue to live in this world as Barry Allen or return to his universe as The Flash.

Not to be outdone, Oliver seems to have his hands full as Arrow adjusts to both a new mayor, and a wave of criminals taking up residence in Star City:


After Laurel’s (Katie Cassidy) death and the departures of both Diggle (David Ramsey) and Thea (Willa Holland) from Team Arrow, Oliver (Stephen Amell) takes to the streets solo to protect Star City’s citizens as the Green Arrow. With Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) guiding him from the bunker, Oliver is forced to deal with a city that has become overrun with both criminals and a slew of new (and painfully inexperienced) vigilantes. Watching Oliver try to balance his jobs as both the mayor and also the protector of Star City, Felicity suggests he form a new team, but Oliver resists. However, when a deadly new criminal, Tobias Church (guest star Chad L. Coleman), enters the picture, Oliver realizes the best thing for the city might be a new team of superheroes. Meanwhile, the flashbacks take us to Russia where Oliver faces off against the Bratva.

We’ll likely soon have Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow synopses to follow, but in the meantime, watch the latest Flash and Arrow trailers below.
