Hey, so remember when Arrow completely blew up the show with last night’s “Public Enemy,” forcing us to wonder how Season 3 would close out its final five? We now have a pretty fantastic answer, in the form of an Atom-smashing, League-leading, Olicity-shipping trailer for the final episodes of Arrow Season 3!

Arrow producers have made no secret of the fact that tonight’s “Public Enemy” would completely change the DC drama as we know it, and by Grodd, they weren’t kidding. What more insanity can Arrow Season 3 offer after the central shock of tonight’s vigilante-busting “Public Enemy?”
The Flash dropped some intense spoilers on its future (and past) with tonight’s “Tricksters,” but The CW drama has far more secrets in store for the remainder of its first season. The latest trailer surprisingly reveals some major Arrow Season 3 plot points, as well as enough new and returning DC stars to unravel the space-time continuum itself!
OK, well now that’s a lot more like it. The 2015 run of The Flash hasn’t been that strong, with an inability to plot over the long term and a semi-disastrous redo of the timeline last week hurting the overall quality of the program. But “Tricksters” does what the show does best: Dole out a fun villain of the week and incrementally move the overall season along without really giving away the farm. That seems like an odd thing to say given the flashbacks in tonight’s episode, but in reality, this episode told us far less than it initially appears.
We barely know what to make of Arrow or The Flash’s proposed teamup spinoff, but already the landmark DC series has a major superhero taking flight. Ciara Renée has been cast in the role of Kendra Saunders, current incarnation of DC’s Hawkgirl!
Arrow’s most recent Suicide Squad venture seemingly set up a larger team presence in the CW super-drama’s fourth season outing this fall, but DC may have taken Task Force X off the table. At least one fan-favorite Suicide Squad character may not return to Arrow in the near future, and he may have taken the team with him.
Arrow Season 3 lets loose its 17th installment of the year with “Suicidal Tendencies,” as the Suicide Squad's return complicates Diggle and Lyla's wedding, while Oliver uncovers a rash of Ra's al Ghul's copycats archers, forcing him to square off against Ray Palmer in his A.T.O.M. suit.
On Community, there’s the concept of the darkest timeline. Well, I think we just saw the lamest timeline on The Flash.
The Flash already traveled to the past in advance of Tuesday’s “Rogue Time,” but March 31 installment “Tricksters” will head all the way back to 1990. Mark Hamill himself reprises his role as the Scarlet Speedster’s trickiest foe, even facing off against original Flash John Wesley Shipp in first photos from the upcoming “Tricksters!”
Arrow Season 3 lets loose its 16th installment of the year with “The Offer,” as Oliver returns to Starling to consider Ra's al Ghul's proposal, while Laurel bonds with Nyssa, and Quentin breaks away from the Arrow.
