Unlike last year’s crossover, which was essentially two separate stories where our heroes crossed from one show into the other, this is a true single story being told over two different nights in two different shows, harkening back to the classic crossover stories which happened over multiple issues in DC comic books.
And now the CW was released via Twitter a new featurette which spotlights Vandal Savage and the danger he poses. The cast also joins in with a few thoughts regarding Vandal as well as the direction being taken by this crossover event.

In The Flash’s second major crossover event with Arrow, Vandal Savage (guest star Casper Crump) arrives in Central City and sets his sights on Kendra Saunders (guest star Ciara Renée). After Vandal attacks Kendra and Cisco (Carlos Valdes), they turn to Barry (Grant Gustin) for help. Realizing how dangerous Vandal is, Barry takes Kendra to Star City and asks Oliver and team to hide her until he can figure out how to stop Vandal. However, things quickly go from bad to worse when a man with wings AKA Hawkman (guest star Falk Hentschel) shows up and flies off with Kendra. Meanwhile, Harrison (Tom Cavanagh) develops a serum to make Barry run faster and asks Jay (guest star Teddy Sears) to test it out. Ralph Hemecker directed the episode with story by Greg Berlanti & Andrew Kreisberg and teleplay by Aaron Helbing & Todd Helbing.
The Flash airs Tuesday at 8 PM ET and Arrow airs Wednesday at 8 PM ET, both on CW.
