Arrow - Invasion!

The Invasion! crossover continues, focusing mainly on current and former Arrow cast members who are abducted by the Dominators and thrown into a virtual-reality world in which Oliver (Stephen Amell) and Thea‘s (Willa Holland) parents are still alive, Diggle (David Ramsey) is the Green Arrow, and Oliver is set to marry Laurel (Katie Cassidy). Haunted by memory flashes of their true lives, Oliver, Thea, Diggle, Ray (Brandon Routh), and Sara (Caity Lotz) come together to fight their way out of the fake reality and back into the real world where they wake up to discover they are aboard a Dominator mother ship in outer space.

We get to see the Flash (Grant Gustin) and Supergirl (Melissa Benoist), but they are relegated to a far-shorter B-story working with the new Team Arrow members tracking down a D-List villain in Cyberwoman (Erica Luttrell) who has tech they hope can help decipher the alien language and code. Although short, the segment does include some pretty sweet tag-team movies by Flash and Supergirl (and way too much whining about meta-humans by Wild Dog). As for the guest-stars, the set-up allows for a return of Oliver’s parents and Laurel (and a few familiar villains), if only for a single episode.
