The Flash seems to be getting decent ratings on its own (and is more universally loved than Arrow, at least to this outsider), so it doesn’t really need to do a crossover episode at this point, even though such a thing has most certainly been in the cards since the show’s inception.
I keep meaning to carve aside some time to dig into both of these series, but they keep eluding me. Maybe if I check out the crossover episode that will be a decent place to dive in to get a flavor of both? Regardless, for existing fans of the shows these images of Grant Gustin and Stephen Amell spending more time together than usual prove to be a nice afternoon surprise. Part one of the Flash vs. Arrow crossover event is technically an episode of The Flash and airs on the CW on December 2nd at 8/9PM ET. Hit the jump to check out the images.
