Much as we’ve enjoyed reviewing and recapping Arrow for the past three years, tonight’s “This is Your Sword” brought it all to a screeching halt, killing off … well, just about everyone. Sure, there’s Season 4 to think about, The Flash, and even that much-hyped spinoff, but what can we do? Everyone’s dead. It’s been real, y’all!

Good news, iZombie fans. The CW has decided to renew the hit television series for a second season, providing a nice counterbalance to the grimy, broody world of The Walking Dead. Zombies aren’t all doom and gloom, you know. The show, based on the comic book series of the same name, recently ended its first season — and you won’t have to wait long for Rose’s next chapter to arrive.
Both Arrow and The Flash have sustained plenty of crossover in their first seasons occupying the same cinematic universe, but with either finale only weeks away, worlds in crisis will undoubtedly collide. Now, we know for certain that Barry Allen will race over to Arrow once more for the Season 3 finale, putting some flash in “My Name is Oliver Queen.”
‘You Think You Know TV?’ is a ScreenCrush original series that dives deep into the worlds of your favorite TV series and freeze frames a few tidbits you might not have known, as with our first installments for Arrow, Mad Men, The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones. Our companion series ‘You Think You Know Movies?’ has already tackled everything from Star Wars to The Avengers and Spider-Man, but now it’s time to hit the ground running with some Flash-y facts from our latest video!
If The Flash titled its episodes like Friends, this one would have been called “The One Where Iris Finds Out”. But it’s not, so it’s called “Grodd Lives” instead. What many of us watching this show all season have been waiting for finally happened, this time without any time travel shenanigans undoing the reveal. I’m of two minds here: Of COURSE I’m happy Iris is finally on the inside, but in no way did the show justify waiting this long to do so.
Warner Bros. and DC Comics will undoubtedly roll out a more elaborate reveal of its Arrow-Flash spinoff series in the weeks to come, but series star Victor Garber may have beaten them to the punch. Not only has Garber reportedly confirmed the still-untitled drama going straight to series, but also its placement in January 2016.
We’ve known since The Flash pilot that Gorilla Grodd haunted Central City, and even seen the lumbering beast in shadow onn a few occasions, but fresh looks at the monkey madness of next week’s “Grodd Lives” will never get old. Go in-depth with the psychic primate and the Reverse Flash with a new full-length trailer for the final three episodes!
Arrow Season 3 has been a bit slow to build its main engine, but with only two episodes remaining, “Al Sah-Him” put the pedal to several metals. Not only did Oliver’s new League persona introduce us to a major Season 4 H.I.V.E. of villainy, but so too do we know how Season 3 will throw down in its final hours, and what new heroes will suit up for the cause.
The CW’s Arrow is still going strong in Season 3, but did you know that the emerald archer has never once chosen his own superhero name? Or that the famed Starling City is actually a composite of Germany and Philadelphia? These are just some of the Arrow points targeting you in the fourth episode of ‘You Think You Know TV?,’ which will not fail this city!
Last night’s Flash saw “The Trap” springing plenty of trouble on Barry’s past and present, though it’s the Scarlet Speedster’s future that caught our eye. Justice may be coming to The Flash before long, bringing some Arrow spinoff heroes in League with a major easter egg from the future.
