Brandon Routh and Emily Bett Rickards to Appear on The Flash. We won’t see Arrow and The Flash crossing over, but that doesn’t mean the supporting characters won’t. Arrow’s Emily Bett Rickards will be joined by Brandon Routh when they cross over to The Flash sometime this season.
In what is a second meet-up between the characters of Arrow and The Flash, Routh’s Ray Palmer and Rickards’ Felicity Smoak will be crossing over to The Flash during the upcoming 18th episode. The episode, titled “All-Star Team-Up” will have Palmer and Felicity heading to Central City to check in with Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) and his team at S.T.A.R. Labs.
Talking with Variety, executive producer Andrew Kreisberg spoke about what will cause Felicity and Palmer to show up on Barry’s home city. “In episode four of Flash when Felicity came by, it wasn’t just a gag to have Felicity come by,” said Kreisberg. He further explained how the meeting comes at the right time for Barry.
It really was integrated into the story. When you reach what’s going on in ‘The Flash’ at that point in the season, Barry is really at a crossroads. Having Felicity come by exactly when he needs her really plays into the whole storyline. It’s fine because as [‘Arrow’ executive producer] Marc [Guggenheim] said, Ray Palmer is all about technology and STAR Labs is all about technology. We get to see Ray so happy to be in STAR Labs… With Cisco [Carlos Valdes] and Ray, they’re new best friends. The STAR Labs team is going to help Ray further his ATOM project.
This will be Rickard’s third appearance on The Flash while this will mark the first time for Routh to appear. The episode will air sometime this spring, so fans will have to wait for this upcoming crossover episode. Are you guys excited to see Felicity and Palmer heading to Central City?
