With only two episodes left of the Flash and Arrow left in their respective seasons, viewers must prepare themselves for post season withdrawals – having to cope with the reality of “well sh*t, what am I gonna watch now”. While we can’t help you there, we can tell you that the last two episodes of each show are going to epic. How epic? We don’t know, we haven’t seen them. But, CW is labeling the series end as a “cage match”, so if that tells you anything. To sell this season showdown even more, The CW has released several spiffy looking character posters. They feature Matt Nable’s Ra’s al Ghul, Robbie Amell’s Firestorm, and several other characters from the series. If anything, they’ll make for great autograph material should you ever get to meet either of the shows stars.
This week’s episode of The Flash is titled “Rogue Air” and is officially described as follows:
“As Wells (Tom Cavanagh) once again gets the upper hand on the S.T.A.R. Labs team, Barry (Grant Gustin) realizes he needs to make a big move and reaches out to an old foe, Captain Cold (guest star Wentworth Miller), for help. Joe (Jesse L. Martin) and Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) warn Barry that Cold can’t be trusted. True to form, Cold has his own agenda that involves the meta-humans trapped in the containment cells. As things seem to be going from bad to worse, The Flash gets reinforcements – Arrow (guest star Stephen Amell) and Firestorm (guest star Robbie Amell).”
Written by Aaron Helbing and Todd Helbing and directed by Doug Aarniokoski, “Rogue Air” is set to air May 12th.
The Arrow finale is titled “My Name Is Oliver Queen” and The CW offers the following official synopsis:
“Everyone’s lives are in danger as Ra’s al Ghul (guest starMatt Nable) puts forth his final plan. Oliver/Al Sah-him (Stephen Amell) must decide if he’s strong enough to take on this new role and what it will mean for everyone on Team Arrow, and his soul.”
Directed by John Behring with story by Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg and teleplay by Marc Guggenheim and Jake Coburn, “My Name Is Oliver Queen” is set to air May 13th.
