New Previews for this Week’s The Flash and Arrow!

ON

The CW has brought online two new promos for this week’s new episodes of their hit DC Comics series, “The Flash” and “Arrow”! Check them both out in the players below!

Titled “Fastest Man Alive,” the second episode of “The Flash” is officially described as follow:

Barry escorts Iris to a university gathering honoring scientist Simon Stagg (guest star William Sadler). When six gunmen storm the event, Barry changes into The Flash and tries to stop them. While he does save a man’s life, he passes out before he can capture the robbers, which frustrates him. As Dr. Wells, Caitlin and Cisco scramble to find out what’s wrong with Barry, Joe comes down hard on Barry for taking the law into his own hands and risking his life. Barry realizes that it wasn’t six gunmen but a metahuman named Danton Black (guest star Michael Christopher Smith), who can make multiples of himself. Meanwhile, Iris becomes even more intrigued by the ‘red streak.’”

Directed by David Nutter with story by Greg Berlanti & Andrew Kreisberg and teleplay by Andrew Kreisberg & Geoff Johns, “Fastest Man Alive” will air on October 14 at 8:00pm ET/PT.

Meanwhile, “Arrow” returns for its second third season episode, “Sara,” officially described as follows:

Lance calls the Arrow when another archer appears in town and starts skewering businessmen. Diggle uses A.R.G.U.S. to find the archer’s identity; he is a man named Simon Lacroix (guest star Matt Ward), who goes by the codename Komodo. However, the team hits a rough patch with the mission and gets help from a surprising source – Laurel. Meanwhile, Oliver begins to worry that he hasn’t heard from Thea, which forces Roy to tell him the truth about why she left town. Ray Palmer pursues Felicity. In the flashback, Maseo (guest star Karl Yune) tells Oliver that Amanda Waller has ordered his first kill. As Oliver looks down the scope of the rifle, he sees the target is his best friend, Tommy (guest star Colin Donnell). Despite her promise to her sister, Laurel debates sharing a secret about Sara with Lance.

Directed by Wendey Stanzler and written by Jake Coburn and Keto Shimizu, “Sara” is set to air October 15 at 8:00pm ET/PT.
