All shows need to figure out ways to stretch a season-long production budget, especially those with moderate to heavy special effects. So it’s not a huge surprise to get an episode of ‘The Flash’ like “Power Outage,” which functioned as something akin to a double bottle episode. Crafting a sequence like last week’s SUPERSONIC PUNCH costs a pretty penny, and sometimes that means cutting corners in other episodes. So this week’s episode turned off the superpowers for the most part, turned the lights down low, and also turned off most of my interest in the process.

‘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!
Both ‘Arrow’ and ‘The Flash’ will understandably take a breather next week for the holidays, something they’ll need to gear up for the big “Flash vs. Arrow” crossover December 2, but The CW isn’t quite finished putting the heroes through their paces. After the two slug it out, Barry will head to Starling City to help Oliver take on DC’s Captain Boomerang, as seen in the first photos from December 3 crossover conclusion, “The Brave and the Bold”!
‘Arrow’ season 3 lets loose its seventh installment of the year with “Draw Back Your Bow,” as Oliver tangles with obsessed “Cupid” Carrie Cutter (Amy Gumenick), while Felicity finds herself in an unexpected encounter with Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh), and Thea auditions DJs for the club’s reopening.
We’ve known forever that ‘Arrow‘ and ‘The Flash‘ would come to blows in a December crossover event, but between Girders and Cupids on either side, Warner Bros. has kept the battle somewhat under wraps. No longer, as ‘The Flash’ speeds out the first photos of its own crossover lead-in “Flash vs. Arrow,” along with the first footage of our CW superheroes clashing!
Both 'Arrow' and 'The Flash' slowed things down a bit this week, but next month will see the two going fast and furious at one another with the arrival of hotly anticipated crossover episodes "Flash vs. Arrow" and "The Brave and the Bold." Find out what brings Barry and Oliver together across two episodes in the first full synopsis from the big 'Arrow'-'Flash' crossover next month!
‘Arrow’ season 3 lets loose its sixth installment of the year with "Guilty,” as Laurel is forced to defend her trainer Ted "Wildcat" Grant (J.R. Ramirez) from accusations of murder, while Roy wrestles with his guilt and recurring nightmares that suggest he was the one to kill Sara Lance.
The CW's 'Arrow' will push Laurel (Katie Cassidy) further down the path of her Black Canary future with tonight's "Guilty," continuing her training under Ted "Wildcat" Grant, but the hit DC drama isn't wasting any for the character to assume the mantle. Check out Laurel's badass new black "Canary" costume from upcoming 'Arrow' episodes in the first photos!
We’re in that phase of ‘The Flash’ in which what’s new has worn off and the season’s true narrative hasn’t yet arrived. As such, we’re in a holding pattern, in which the same basic moves are repeated until the audience learns what’s what in the world of Central City. As mentioned in the last recap, this is all perfectly fine, and even though "Plastique" was a step down from "Going Rogue," it still has some core things that suggest long-term health for the show.
'The Flash' took something of a breather this past week in order to prime for tonight's explosive "Plastique," but the newest trailer for the CW 'Arrow' spinoff picks up the pace double-time. Not only do we get new looks at the likes of DC's Girder, General Wade Eiling and a returning Clock King, but so too does an epic look at 'The Flash''s future tease a new name beyond the "Red Streak," and a deepening time travel mystery to the enigmatic Harrison Wells!
