This week on “The Flash” and “Arrow”, both teams must work together to protect newcomer Kendra Saunders from super villain Vandal Savage, which can be seen in the photos below.
This two-night event will not only reunite both teams, but it will also set up the new series “Legends of Tomorrow” by providing more backstory on Kendra and Carter (Hawkgirl and Hawkman) and shed some light on why Vandal Savage has been hunting them for over 4,000 years.
The strength and intelligence of both teams will be required to bring down a villain as ancient as Savage — but can they do it? Based on these photos, it looks like they get a little help from Malcolm Merlyn, who has some experience in dealing with immortals, now that he is Ra's. It also looks like Kendra's memories begin to return, as she and Carter are suited up to take on Savage towards the end of the two-part episodes.
Below you can find both episode descriptions and a full photo gallery for both crossover episodes. You can also view both trailers here.
