Ready for the latest “Flash”/”Arrow” crossover? On Monday, Nov. 30, the CW released a sneak peek teasing what to expect in the first part of this year’s event, “Legends of Today,” as Kendra finds out just why she’s being targeted by Vandal Savage.
In this “Flash” episode, Vandal Savage arrives in Central City and sets his sights on Kendra Saunders. After he attacks her and Cisco, they turn to Barry for help, and upon realizing how dangerous Vandal is, Barry takes her to Star City and asks Oliver and the others to hide her until he can figure out how to stop Vandal. To make matters worse, a man with wings (Carter Hall, a.k.a. Hawkman) shows up and flies off with Kendra. Meanwhile, Harry asks Jay to test a serum he has developed to make Barry run faster.
The “Legends of Today” sneak peek shows Carter Hall filling Kendra Saunders in on their history, why Vandal Savage is after them and what he thinks of her current protection detail. They’re soulmates, partners for 4000 years, Carter tells her, drawn to each other in each life and, after they die, reincarnated to find each other again and again. In every lifetime, Vandal Savage hunts them down, and he has killed them 206 times. His life force is tethered to theirs, so that every time he kills them, he becomes more powerful. So why is Kendra safer with him than them, Cisco wonders.
“The Flash” season 2 airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. on the CW. What do you think of the episode 8 “Legends of Today” clip?
