Arrow and The Flash have staged mini-crossovers during the past year — Barry, Cisco and Caitlin made their debuts in the second season of Arrow, while Felicity and Oliver have appeared in The Flash’s first season. But during the Dec. 2 episode of The Flash and the Dec. 3 episode of Arrow, there will be a full-fledged crossover event between the CW DC Comics shows.
“If there is anybody who is watching only one of the shows, [this is an opportunity] to sort of check out the other,” Arrow and The Flash executive producer Andrew Kreisberg told The Hollywood Reporter on Saturday ahead of a fan-screening of the crossover episodes. “You don’t always get that opportunity … but I really feel like there are so many similarities between the shows, as much as there are differences. This was such a great opportunity to give the best of everything we do on both shows: it has great Arrow stunts, it has great Flash humor and heart. We’re just really excited.”
I have added new stills from The Brave and the Bold episode which is Part 2 of the Arrow/Flash crossover. It will air on Wednesday, December 3.

The episode kicks off with a flashback to the night of siege when Ollie, Felicity, and Diggle are rushing through the street to pick up the cure before Slade gets to it. On their way there, however, they decided to make a pit stop to save a cute redhead who’s being attacked by one of Slade’s mirakuru-powered soldiers. The damsel Ollie saves is immediately taken with the Arrow and picks up an arrow he left behind and stares at intently.
We then return to the present day where Quentin and Ollie are checking out the body of a man who was killed with an arrow with a spade-shaped point and dropped off in this location dressed in an Arrow costume; it’s Isaac Stansler. [ASIDE: Where does one order novelty arrows like that? Is someone actually making a living off of this or did Cupid just make these tips on her own?] Having seen the end of last week’s episode, we know Cupid, a.k.a. Carrie Cutter (played by Supernatural’s Amy Gumenick), is behind it, but Quentin and Ollie don’t. All they know, based on the arrow and staging of the body, is that the killer wants Ollie’s attention.
Over at Queen Consolidated, Felicity realizes that she definitely has a type when she walks into Ray’s office to remind him about his upcoming press conference and finds him shirtless and working out on a salmon ladder. As he’s getting cleaned up, Ray asks her out to dinner. And before you get all excited, it’s not a date. Still pursuing his co-generation idea from two weeks ago, he’s meeting with the owner of minerals needed for the project and the owner’s wife for dinner and wants Felicity to ease the boredom. Initially hesitant because she wants to keep things platonic and professional and because she’s still not over Ollie, Felicity says no, but quickly changes her mind once Ray shows her the expensive dress he bought for her to wear to the dinner. I’ll admit it: I’m an Ollie/Felicity shipper. But I can’t help but be excited by the prospect of Ray and Felicity getting together because they have such a great chemistry and Ollie had his chance and gave it up.

Oliver (Stephen Amell), Arsenal (Colton Haynes) and Diggle (David Ramsey) track down the location of a boomerang-wielding killer named Digger Harkness (guest star) but are surprised when they come face to face with an A.R.G.U.S. team. Diggle asks Lyla (guest star) why A.R.G.U.S. is involved but she defers until Harkness attacks the building, killing several agents and targeting Lyla. The Arrow joins the fight and gets help from an old friend – The Flash (guest star Grant Gustin). Harkness manages to get away and Oliver teams up with Barry again to find him before he can get to Lyla. When Harkness plants five bombs in the city that are timed to explode at the same time, both teams must come together to save the city.
