The season eight premiere of Stephen Amell’s Arrow seemingly killed off two key characters from Grant Gustin’s The Flash series.
Deaths will be galore in the new seasons of Stephen Amell’s Arrow and Grant Gustin’s The Flash as both shows head into the highly-anticipated Arrowverse crossover event Crisis On Infinite Earths. In it, we’ll be seeing almost every character of the Arrowverse meeting with one another, including Stephen Amell and Grant Gustin’s heroes, with the ramifications spilling into each other’s shows. However, deaths have already begun prior to the crossover thanks to Stephen Amell’s Arrow. The two characters who seemingly passed away in Arrow are actually from Grant Gustin’s The Flash, and nobody realized what happened to them.
In Stephen Amell’s Arrow season 8 premiere, Oliver traveled to the alternate reality of Earth-2. Near the end of the episode, Oliver’s mission from The Monitor is complete and he escapes as Earth-2 begins to disintegrate. Everyone in that reality seems to have passed away, including Harry Wells and his daughter Jesse Quick. If you don’t remember Harry Wells and Jesse Quick from Grant Gustin’s The Flash, the two helped the crew out before retuning to their home Earth-2 during the second season of the Arrowverse series.
That being said, Harry and Jesse’s apparent deaths in Stephen Amell’s Arrow is not an oversight. Despite not being directly mentioned, Arrow showrunner Beth Schwartz told TVLine that she was concerned about the ramifications Earth-2’s destruction would have on Grant Gustin’s The Flash.
“We were like, ‘Is this okay? Does this ruin things?’ And you know, they were very gracious.”
Grant Gustin’s The Flash team is cool with it, which means that Harry and Jesse were either expendable characters going forward or their deaths could be used to further advance the series… unless they somehow survived. We can only imagine how the Flash team will deal with this. What do you think? Let us know in the comments!
Crisis On Infinite Earths will span two quarters and consist of Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow, and Batwoman. The five-part Arrowverse event will launch with three episodes in December before concluding with two additional episodes in January.
In addition to the regular cast members of each Arrowverse series, Crisis will also feature appearances by Tyler Hoechlin as Superman, Brandon Routh as Clark Kent/Superman and Ray Palmer/The Atom, LaMonica Garrett as the Anti-Monitor, Jon Cryer as Lex Luthor, Tom Cavanagh as Pariah, Elizabeth Tulloch as Lois Lane, Cress Williams as Black Lightning, Kevin Conroy as Bruce Wayne, Johnathon Schaech as Jonah Hex, Erica Durance as Lois Lane, Tom Welling as Clark Kent / Superman, Ashley Scott as Huntress, Stephen Lobo as Jim Corrigan and Burt Ward in an undisclosed role.
Stay tuned for the latest news on Stephen Amell, Grant Gustin, Arrow, The Flash and the Arrowverse crossover!
