Before Arrow goes on winter hiatus, the show ends the year with a two-part mid-season finale which introduces Barry Allen (Grant Gustin), the future Flash. Queen Consolidated is at the center of the story when there's a break-in at one of its facilities. Oliver has to balance his role with Team Arrow with that as an executive at the company.
With Moira out of prison, she'll be able to come back and help at Queen Consolidated and Isabel Rochev is still around and not going anyway. Is Sebastian Blood at the center of the troubles? From the below sneak peeks, that definitely appears to be a possibility.
Executive Producer Andrew Kreisberg in this preview
There's a break-in at Queen Consolidated's Applied Science Division. Hello, Barry Allen! He's from the Central City Police Department CSI Unit. The robbery is similar to one that happened in Central City.
Are sparks going to fly between Felicity and Barry? She asks him to go with her to a party, so anything's possible! Though, Barry doesn't want to dance, "I'm just not too good on my feet." We'll see if that changes!
The producers were looking for a Flash that's different from Arrow. Andrew Kreisberg said, "We weren't looking for someone who was another big square-jawed hero."
"The Scientist" Trailer
It certainly appears Blood's experiments to create a super strong following has worked. If he mass produces the serum, that could lead to anarchy in the city.
Something's going to happen that threatens Oliver's secret identity. How many people will find out he's the Arrow?
Introducing Barry Allen Clip
Barry Allen shows up at Queen Consolidated to help with the robbery investigation. "Do your parents know that you're here?" Ouch! He has some insight into the robbery. One guy ripped through the door? And used one hand to break someone's neck? That's one scary dude!
Oh, these exchanges between Barry and Oliver are going to be awesome if this clip is representative of their meetings.
Barry: "I'm guessing you don't know how hard it is to break someone's neck?"
Oliver: "Hmm. No. No idea."
Arrow airs on Wednesdays at 8 pm ET on the CW.
