As it turns out, the 100th episode of Arrow will transpire during the four-night “Invasion” crossover event between Supergirl, The Flash, Arrow, and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. We already know that all of the DC CW superheroes will be dealing with an invasion from the Dominators. This has led some hardcore Arrow fans feeling that the milestone 100th episode of the series will not stand out since everyone will be involved in that episode and probably steal the spotlight. After all, with Supergirl there, she’s got the most powers and probably will stand out. In addition, the 100th episode also will be a little bit of a blast from the past and include Laurel Lance, Deathstroke, and Robert Queen as well.
Actor Echo Kellum who plays Curtis Holt aka “Mr. Terriffic” says don’t worry, it’s still very much an Arrow episode.
“I definitely think we are handling our Arrow business and still doing this crossover. I think that’s a good thing, you know, um, especially for this magnitude of an episode. I know that the last few cross-overs were, the shows kind of helping set-up other shows, but there’s no element of that here. Every show here is an already-established show. If you’re doing a cross-over to help set-up Legends of Tomorrow then, logically, you’re going to have to spend some time dealing with these new characters who are coming in, because if you don’t then you’re doing a disservice to that new show.”
Rest assured, Team Arrow will get their chance to shine. Is there anything else he can tell us about the episode?
“I literally, when I read those scripts, my mind was like, ‘holy hell, how are we going to do all of this, are we going to all this, is this real?’ And we’re doing it, and it’s coming out great! [Director James Bamford] is back with us, and he’s killing it as always, and I just can not wait for fans to see this crossover.”
The four-way Invasion crossover will take place during the first week of December 2016 on Supergirl, The Flash, Arrow, and Legends of Tomorrow.
