There are many reasons to look forward to the upcoming third season of “Arrow,” regardless of if you are talking about the characters, the villains, or the particular story that is being crafted.
One of the more ambitious episodes coming up is the “Flash” crossover that is going to be filmed starting Monday, and we now know the official title for it: “The Brave and the Bold.” This was posted on Twitter by executive producer Marc Guggenheim (see below), and if we are being frank, it’s probably our least-favorite title of the entire season so far. Why? It sounds too much like a soap opera on CBS, and that in turn diminishes a little bit of what this show is. (Guggenheim clarified after posting the first tweet that the episode is in fact filming Monday, and the date on the initial message was wrong.)
This crossover is basically forcing you to watch both versions of the show, which may be both a good and bad thing. For viewers without a ton of time on their hands, they may feel a little more lost given that half of the story will be on “The Flash.” However, everyone else may find quite a bit of awesome stuff to love here, especially when it comes to seeing how we’ve already seen Barry Allen around Oliver Queen already. The only difference now is the presence of all those powers, and the experience that comes with them.
