The Flash” and "Arrow" crossover was something that you shouldn’t miss, but if you did, read on to learn more about what transpired on Episode 8 “Flash vs. Arrow.” 

Just like every episode of both shows, this one has a villain to destroy. In this particular episode, Barry Allen was faced with a metahuman who looks like Penguin from “Batman.” It all started when he robbed a bank and caused a commotion, and of course, Eddie was dragged into the scene. On the other hand, Ollie, Diggle and Felicity of “Arrow” were in town to solve a case regarding a boomerang.

Ollie heard about the madman running around town, and of course, he knew about Flash, but he really didn't want to work together with him because he finds him undisciplined.

Barry wanted to prove that he’s not who the Arrow people think he is, so he went after the villain. However, he got infected in the process. Sure, he can fight off the infection, but it didn't have an effect on him. That’s when his anger and rage surfaced, which went down to a fight against him and Ollie.

Ollie tried to get to him, but Barry was very cautious and really wanted to prove that he doesn’t need to learn anything new anymore because he knows everything already. He even accused Ollie of being jealous of him and his powers. Things got out of hand that Barry even lashed at Joe, and this made Joe go to the people at S.T.A.R. Labs to report Barry and have them do something about it.

Then things took a turn for the worse when Barry went all crazy and almost killed Eddie, but the good thing was Ollie was there to save the day. They fought, and it was really amazing. Of course, Ollie won the fight, and they were able to normalize Barry once again. However, the damages in Barry’s relationships with Eddie and Iris have been done.
