In web animated show Freedom Fighters: The Ray, we meet alternate version of the character from Flash, Arrow and Supergirl and also Cisco. Pilot, Part 1; I'm not sure if it's okay to also list The Flash S2? Clock King, who previously appeared on Arrow is one of the villains on this episode. While there , Cisco meets Detective Quentin Lance, and Barry and Oliver. "Flash vs. Arrow" is the first annual Arrowverse crossover event, broadcast on The CW, featuring episodes of the Arrowverse television series The Flash and.
He noted while the crossover "does a nifty job of bringing the two series together" it was unlikely "to boost the shared audience between them much more than already exists". Death called the crossover episodes "fun," noting that New viewers to either show could follow along and have a good time, but veteran viewers were rewarded with major storyline motion. Both episodes "put Team Flash in new situations and it was thrilling to watch how they reacted".
Agard felt that while Arrow had "some great and comedic character moments for Team Arrow" none of its stories were advanced so that the episodes "felt like pause buttons" in its action. He said the "Flash vs. Arrow" episode was "fun" with its focus "on the sheer entertainment value in seeing these two heroes and their allies cross paths" As "a largely standalone episode" its scope was limited resulting "in yet another underdeveloped villain.
Club awarded the episode an "A-", calling it "a satisfying showdown" that "actually stands on its own as a mostly self-contained hour of The Flash". Von Doviak complimented writers Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg, and director Glen Winter, for tackling the "clashing tones of the two shows" and the different personalities of their main characters, and "weaving He also highlighted the fight scene between the Flash and Arrow, saying "It's a well-choreographed battle, with each hero appearing to have the upper hand at various points and clever bits of one-upmanship.
He noted that the episode pointed out the many challenges Barry Allen "faces as a young up-and-coming crimefighter". He felt that Arrow's "knocks" made the point that "Barry's superpowers are an amazing gift He felt it delivered "on both the action front" with its impeccable, "epic" fight scene, and "on the character front".
While the viewer can enjoy the interaction between the teams everything that happens in the episode pushes "this The Flash's stories forward".
Arrow" was everything a fan could have wanted from a crossover event," noting it was "tight, well-paced, superbly written and, most importantly, fun She noted this episode demonstrated how comic book ideas "can translate to the small screen if done with this much care, joy and enthusiasm". Given the "hype" she admired, and was "surprised" by the fact that even "with a little added Oliver, Felicity and Diggle thrown in," the crossover was not the focus of the whole episode.
Noting that the crossover "wasted some of its potential by delivering two mostly standalone episodes," the Arrow episode was "more consistently entertaining and satisfying than the first". He enjoyed Captain Boomerang suggesting he could be the "most memorable villain to debut this season".
For him, Laurel and his parents are still alive, his future father-in-law Quentin Lance genuinely seems to respect him and is happy to welcome him to the family, and his father believes him the right man to take over Queen Consolidated.
Ray is engaged to Felicity, Diggle is the Green Arrow in this reality with Felicity working the Arrow Cave with himand Thea is just thrilled to have her family intact.
Once the group is awake, they make their way to a pod and manage to take off, having no idea how to actually fly the craft. An Independence Day-like pursuit ensues with dozens of other space crafts closing in, before the Waverider, captained by Nate Heywood, arrives and disappears with them aboard, heading towards the final chapter in this arc.
Before leaving the Dominator-induced vision, there are a couple of significant moments.
In one, Oliver has to try and convince Thea that none of this is real, but that what it has done is forced him to embrace their responsibility to other people and the world. There is also the moment before they step back into reality, where Oliver is encouraged by the voices of loved ones no longer with him. Two complaints, one minor and one a little more significant. For the former, there are way too many shots of heroes with their hands on their hips, notably Supergirl and The Flash.
Who thought this was a good idea? Indeed, characters like The Flash and Supergirl are very much a part of a B-story although Team Arrow does discover a connection between the Dominator language and Hebrew. Overall, a strong installment of Arrow, and an appropriate celebration of episodes. Season 2, Episode 7 — Invasion Starring: Nate suggests bringing the Waverider back to to capture a Dominator and gather intel of their own.

Oliver asks her to hang back, because he's having a hard time dealing with the situation. Apparently when he goes up against something new, he pushes back and seeks a sense of normalcy. This was born from dealing with human threats, which became meta-humans, to discovering alternate Earths, to being a prisoner on a space ship and the fact that there are aliens. And the fact that nobody fights that?

Yo, Oliver, maybe you want to claw back your normalcy after the aliens have been dealt with? There is also a wistful bit where he reflects on the fact that he used to dream about time travel and aliens, and the reality of both is anything but a dream. On a mission to earlier this seasonhe interacted with his younger self againand he believes that that interaction altered the timeline.
Initially his intention is to go back and correct things, essentially wiping her from existence, though he comes to realize how horrible that would be as he connects with her emotionally. They awaken in a cell, where they start to question the Dominator, who responds telepathically, saying they had come to Earth to investigate the Justice Society of America to determine if they posed a threat.
At that moment, the alien is taken away and presumably tortured, when the group is rescued by Cisco and Felicity, armed with weapons from the Waverider.
Before they leave, Cisco suggests they show some compassion by freeing the alien, returning him to its people as a sign of good will. Barry easily disarms his men, but is told that the Dominators see meta-humans as a future threat.

It is then that Cisco realizes that they also screwed up the timeline by freeing the alien, who history had originally shown was captured by the government. In essence, he is as guilty as Barry was of an unintentional time disruption. This forgiveness is driven home in the next sequence when Barry is determined to hand himself over to the Dominators. Oliver, Supergirl, Heat Wave!
Flash vs. Arrow
All of which leads to the final battle. As the Waverider goes after the meta-bomb, Stein comes in with a device that can be placed on individual Dominators and, when activated, cause extreme pain to them.
Shortly thereafter, on a rooftop, the team runs towards the Dominators and they towards them, in what is an absolute lift from the Captain America: Civil War airport scene.
While the fight is going on, Barry, at super speed, starts attaching the devices to the aliens.

In the meantime, the Waverider has captured the meta-bomb in a tractor beam and has managed to slow its descent into the atmospher, giving Firestorm the chance to land on it and use his powers — under great physical and mental strain — to transmute the device into water, thus saving everyone. This is followed by the smaller devices being activated, causing the Dominators to react in horrible pain and racing to retreat from around the world.
Now, not to rain on the parade that is victory, but exactly why are they retreating?
