Feminism
Feminism. What is it? Why is it important? I get asked this question on a daily bases, and It disappoints me that many people either don't know what it means or have a false impression of it. On the other hand it doesn't shock me that people my age don't kn...

WARNING, THIS REVIEW CONTAINS MASSIVE SPOLIERS.

Episode 8, The Brave and The Bold

Notes before reading: I am NOT a reviewer, I'm merely a huge fan of the Flash comics, and like to believe that I know the series and the characters incredibly well. This review is made purely from the standpoint of a fan, who wants to see his favorite Flash characters hit the big screen in a creative fashion, and that I do this review for no reason other to get my thoughts out. If you agree, more power to you, but if not, honestly, it's fine. Not at all a big deal. Rather inconsequential, even.

Alright so this review will be far different from any other in the past.It will not only be the review of two episodes in one but it will be a review of the show the Flash and Arrow in the idea of group ambience, rather than the two shows an individuals. Without further delays let's hit the fast lane. Now, this crossover starts with the Arrow coming to Central City because he needs to find out who a Boomerang belongs to(which was an obvious nod to the character Captain Boomerang, a notorious Flash villain). The Flash crew is eager to help, and Barry even offers a "team up" when he reveals that he's having a bit of trouble himself catching a metahuman who can incite rage in his victims. At first Oliver is hesitant to accept(which is great, as it shows his full trust of Barry as a hero) but he does only to give Barry peace of mind, though he knows that Barry can handle it on his own. Barry and Olivier begin training together, which is something Barry's unused because Barry constantly rushes in to fights head on. Which was an incredible element for me, because it truly shows the "Experience v.s Power" argument and aspect, of who would win between them. During the battle Arrow uses two hidden arrows to attack Barry, pointing out that he has the time to be aware, and he merely needs to take it. Afterwards Barry bears more resentment towards the Arrow, especially after he hurts a man for information to help Barry. The Flash decides to fight the metahuman on his own, only to lose and become affected with the angry. However Barry's metabolism fights off the affects, only succeeding in making them worse and causing him to lash out. First at his friends, then at his boss, and finally at Eddie(whose Iris's boyfriend) revealing how he truly felt about the relationship. Which was just amazing. Describing his incredible resentment towards Eddie. Barry is about to kill him, when the Arrow steps in, managing to outwit and injure Barry, though he constantly heals. Finally, the Flash crew arrives along with the Arrows gang, shocking Barry back to normal. In the end the two say good bye, proud of their partnership, and they begin to track down the owner of the mysterious Boomerang. The next episode picks up a week later in Starling, where the Arrow is tracking down Captain Boomerang, and seemingly losing, only to be "saved" by the Flash, much to Queens dismay. At first Arrow is once against begrudgingly accepting help, but warns Barry that he must play by his rules, to which he agrees.Throughout the episode Barry seems to be troubled with his methods, but accepts that it's how he gets things done, and that in the end he's still a good person. The two eventually face off and defeat Captain Boomerang, and Barry finally fights smarter, using his friends to stop the 5 bombs at once. While Olivier spares Boomerang's life, stating that this is what separates him from them, and that he's still a human being, unlike Harkness. The episode ends with a final spar between Arrow and the Flash, and the episode ends before they begin.

High Light of the Episode for ME.: Great work here, a lot I could still talk about, but I'll stop here. For me, the best parts were Barry's ability to heal, focusing his speed on that to continue the fight. Another highlight for me was Captain Boomerang, it perfectly captured how he was a completely different kind of rogue. He was willing to kill whoever got in his way, and certainly wasn't above it. Truly remarkable. Not much else to say really, the general review was already incredibly detailed. Oh but side note, I did enjoy when the the Starling city police officer referred to Barry as "Bart Allen" while trying to remember his name.

Over all rating.: Incredible, incredible work, truly amazing and astonishing, it breaks my scale.
