‘Arrow’ season 3 lets loose its eighth installment of the year with “The Brave and the Bold,” as ‘The Flash’ comes to town to aid Oliver in pursuit of a boomerang-throwing killer, only to find the spree has deeper ties to A.R.G.U.S. and Diggle’s wife Lyla.

Currently mitigating a ‘Flash’ crossover (and soon to deal with Deathstroke’s return), ‘Arrow’ season 3 hasn’t made very much of the appearance of DC baddie Ra’s al Ghul beyond the pursuit of Sara’s killer. That all changes with next week’s midseason finale “The Climb,” the first photos of which show Oliver (shirtlessly, of course) taking on the legendary Batman villain in a snowy duel!
The CW’s ‘Arrow’ staged the first half of a major reunion with ‘The Flash’ last night, only to continue tonight with ‘The Brave and the Bold,’ but the DC drama’s next big return may not prove so friendly. Manu Bennett’s Slade Wilson will bring the Deathstroke to ‘Arrow’ season 3, returning in a 2015 episode!
Well that was a LOT of fun. There are times to get super serious in the world of episodic reviews, and there are times to pass around a few beverages and raise a glass. I don’t know if this was the “best” episode of ‘The Flash,’ whatever that word really means, but it was almost certainly the most entertaining. As light on its feet as The Flash (and ‘The Flash’) has ever been, ‘Flash Versus Arrow’ delivered on the promise of its title and provided some pulpy thrills while also providing conflict for future installments.
We weren’t entirely surprised to find CBS getting in on the TV superhero game with Greg Berlanti’s development of DC’s ‘Supergirl,’ but the titular superheroine’s first casting rumor may yet surprise fans of The CW’s existing DC dramas. ‘The Vampire Diaries’ and spinoff The Originals’ star Rebecca Holt is the first name tossed into the goblet for CBS’s forthcoming superhero series, but how likely is she to be our new ‘Supergirl’?
Tomorrow night will see ‘The Flash’ kicking off part one of the big “Flash vs. Arrow” crossover, but why wait a whole 24 hours for some flashy new goodness? Get an extended look at Oliver and Barry’s buddy brawl, as well as DC villains Captain Cold and Heat Wave, and we’ll even throw a shirtless Felicity into the latest ‘Flash’ trailer, because why not?

‘Arrow‘ and ‘The Flash‘ fans are already eagerly anticipating the upcoming two-night crossover event, but could an even more ‘Super’ hero lie in their future? We’ve heard time and time again that DC intends to keep its TV and movie continuities separate, but a new report suggests CBS’ upcoming ‘Supergirl‘ series could well come to play with The CW’s red and green-suited superheroes in the future.
‘The Flash’ hung around this week, despite a “Power Outage” and the approaching holiday festivity, but December 2 will see the Scarlet Speedster really heating things up when Oliver Queen comes to down for two-part crossover “Flash vs. Arrow.” We’ve seen the photos, but watch for yourself what happens when Barry takes on the emerald archer in the first “Flash vs. Arrow” trailer!
