We finally have the official descriptions for both episodes of this season’s “Arrow” and “Flash” crossover event!
Here is the description for the first part of the crossover, which will be a “Flash” episode titled, “Legends of Today:”
PART ONE OF THE EPIC CROSSOVER WITH “ARROW” —
In its second major crossover event with “Arrow,” Vandal Savage (guest star Casper Crump) arrives in Central City and sets his sights on Kendra Saunders (guest star Ciara Renée). After Vandal attacks Kendra and Cisco (Carlos Valdes), they turn to Barry (Grant Gustin) for help. Realizing how dangerous Vandal is, Barry takes Kendra to Star City and asks Oliver and team to hide her until he can figure out how to stop Vandal. However, things quickly go from bad to worse when a man with wings AKA Hawkman (guest star Falk Hentschel) shows up and flies off with Kendra. Meanwhile, Harrison (Tom Cavanagh) develops a serum to make Barry run faster and asks Jay (guest star Teddy Sears) to test it out. Ralph Hemecker directed the episode with story by Greg Berlanti & Andrew Kreisberg and teleplay by Aaron Helbing & Todd Helbing
And here is the description for the “Arrow” episode of the crossover, which is the eighth episode of season four titled, “Legends of Yesterday:”
PART TWO OF THE EPIC CROSSOVER WITH “THE FLASH” —
Oliver (Stephen Amell) and Barry Allen (guest star Grant Gustin) take Kendra Saunders (guest star Ciara Renée) and Carter Hall (guest star Falk Henstchel) to a remote location to keep them hidden from Vandal Savage (guest star Casper Crump) while they figure out how to defeat him. Malcolm (John Barrowman) arranges a meeting between Vandal, Green Arrow and The Flash that doesn’t go as planned. Meanwhile, Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards), Thea (Willa Holland), Diggle (David Ramsey) and Laurel (Katie Cassidy) work with Team Flash to come up with a weapon powerful enough to destroy Vandal Savage. Thor Freudenthal directed the episode with story by Greg Berlanti & Marc Guggenheim and teleplay by Brian Ford Sullivan & Marc Guggenheim
Last year’s crossover event was a real highlight of both show’s seasons last year, and just by reading the descriptions, this year’s event sounds even better! I love that Vandal Savage will be introduced in these crossover episodes, and I’m sure by the end of the crossover, things will be set up pretty nicely for “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow” series.
The crossover event kicks off on “The Flash” Tuesday, December 1st, and continues on “Arrow” Wednesday, December 2nd.
