"Arrow"/"Flash" Crossover Unveils Hero-Filled Plot

Perhaps the most anticipated episodes of the season are swiftly approaching for "Arrow" and "The Flash." The two CW shows are set to cross over with each other in early December, as the arrival of Vandal Savage (Caspar Crump) causes the heroes to team-up with each other and their friends -- including Hawkgirl and Hawkman.

The first half of the crossover takes place on "The Flash" with an episode titled "Legends of Today." The spoiler-filled description is as follows:

In its 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 Renee). After Vandal attacks Kendra and Cisco, they turn to Barry 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 develops a serum to make Barry run faster and asks Jay (guest star Teddy Sears) to test it out.
