Despite continuous training for his next encounter with Zoom, Barry's speed ceases to improve. Harrison has only one resort left, a serum he once tried to develop for Jay (The Earth-2 Flash). With Caitlin's help he succeeds, but Jay resolutely warns against its use. Meanwhile, Egyptian immortal Vandal Savage comes to Central City to slaughter the latest reincarnation of warrior priestess Chay-Ara, known to Cisco as his girlfriend Kendra. Barry solicits team Arrow's help in protecting her while he as The Flash, alongside Green Arrow, find dealing with the Egyptian deity difficult. Written by statmanjeff

Not just a great crossover.. it is PERFECT!
2 December 2015 | by Alan_H4See all my reviews

Where do i even start?

First of all i gotta say that in all of the flash episodes this is by far the best one. There are a lot of great episodes, but this one will stand out for a long long time..., just imagine all of the next episodes being like this, having the same quality! yes sir! This is without a doubt a TV superhero show with amazing quality! the special effects, the characters, all of it! PERFECT. It shows that you don't need a million dollar blockbuster movie to be epic. The flash is a great example of that.

Beside the great action and the good performance of the actors i gotta say that the transition from one superhero to the other and bringing them together is just done so well. It's not just done so well, it's done in such good way that you're just baffled as a watcher, to see how much passion is put in to this episode (and some others). Even the small things like how the league of assassins turn up and the humor of cisco etc. Again GREAT performance.

I wish this episode was at least one and half hours long, so we could see more of the new emerging characters (villains), but will just wait for the next episodes. I personally hate waiting for a the next episodes... because the show is just that good!

New villain (vandal savage) +1

Hawk girl +1 (she good and she will get better i see).

Haakman + 2 (This guy can act dammit!) the way he was introduced and the action!

The flash + arrow +2

the league + 1

supporting characters +2

where was constantine?? i mean we are dealing with ancient 'magic', i really thought he was going to pop up somehow and give some advice with. The dude can act and really in this element here.. -1
