Enjoyed the huge grin on Barry's face when Green Arrow shows up. Diggle being startled when Barry ran up was pretty funny. Felicity's burnt shirt. Updated version of the Rainbow Raider. "How can you have super speed and still not be on time?" made me laugh as well. Whoa was that Firestorm at the end?!

Today's episode was AWESOME! Totally loved seeing them face off against one another!

Also - Oliver is spot-on when he remarked to Felicity that something is a little off about Dr Wells.

I feel bad for the people who only watch Flash and not bother with Arrow as it's essential to watch it from the beginning to really understand references that was made in this episode. A lot of people are probably very, very confused about the lady at the end, or who Flash are referring to when he slides in a comment about Arrow's adversaries.

Indeed. There's more than something off with Dr Wells, and to be honest, he's stinking sky high on being somewhat evil. Just look at him grinning when he reveals Arrow's secret identity as that's not good.

Maybe. We don't know for sure.

If you watch the other half of this double bill you'll have no choice but to accept that the producers of these shows are closing in the Justice League, and in my mind Arrow and The Flash presents the best superhero series that you can see in the television at the moment. In my honest opinion the double bill proved that Marvel Agents of Shield doesn't come to bar with these two shows.
Another thing, if you watch the other half is that you cannot stop think that if the (Green) Arrow would had been replaced by the Batman and the Flash by the Superman, they could have had similar kind of talk about the morality of their actions and the cities they are protecting, could you?

Thoroughly enjoyed both crossover episodes this week. What I really liked - especially in the Arrow episode - was the contrast between the two teams and the light-hearted approach of The Flash against the dark approach of Arrow. Caitlin and Cisco really brought that across, I thought.

Right now I'm just wondering why Barry, Caitlin, Sisco, and Detective West aren't seeing what Ollie saw - that there's something off about Dr Wells...

I might end up being wrong here but, I don't think Dr Wells is the reverse Flash. I starting to think that he might possibly be Firestorm.

Forest for the trees. I think they're just too close and are too dependent. Another question is why Oliver doesn't trust his instincts and pass the thought on to Barry. "Eh, that guy's probably an evil criminal mastermind who will try to kill or otherwise ruin my friend but, whatever - I've got people to shoot." :)

After feeling a little tired with both series, this was a breath of fresh air. Brilliantly done - and loved all the humour in it. The writers went out of their way to make this a stand-out episode, and it showed. :)

Oh - and especially loved the comparison between both "heroes", and how beside Barry, Oliver's Arrow looks like a thug. They underlined that he is a murderer, something we tend to overlook.

And the training! "You're not really going to shoot me with an arrow, are you?" Lol!

Btw, I didn't get who the woman was at the end that Oliver met and recognised - but my wife suggested that it might be the woman that Oliver's mother paid off after she became pregnant with Ollie's baby, before the island...
