After Vandal attacks Kendra and Cisco (Carlos Valdes), they turn to Barry (Grant Gustin) for help. Realizing how dangerous Vandal is, Barry takes Kendra to Star City and asks Oliver and team to hide her until he can figure out how to stop Vandal. However, things quickly go from bad to worse when a man with wings AKA Hawkman (guest star Falk Hentschel) shows up and flies off with Kendra. Meanwhile, Harrison (Tom Cavanagh) develops a serum to make Barry run faster and asks Jay (guest star Teddy Sears) to test it out.

Hawkman offers teams Flash and Arrow a brief origin story of himself and Kendra Saunders in a new promo video. The scene opens with Hawkman tied up in chains, alongside teams Arrow and Flash, as he calls Hawkgirl, "Shayera." But she replies that her name is Kendra Saunders and Hawkman remarks, "In this life, and I am..(pauses) was Carter Hall. But that is not who we are."
He then explains, "You are princess Shayera, and I am prince Khufu. We are lovers, soulmates and partners for more than 4,000 years. We are drawn to each other in each life and after we die, we reincarnate again to find each other again and again and again. And now that I have found you, we should really get out of here."
Cisco interrupts him with, "Okay Romeo, why don't you pump the brakes," but Hawkman says, "These people cannot protect you from Savage any longer." Oliver questions, "Do you know who Vandal Savage is?" Hawkman replies, "In every lifetime he hunts us down and kills us. He has done it 206 times, and I am not planning to make it 207."
"Why does he kill you?" asks John Diggle. Hawkman explains, "His life force is tethered down. Every time he kills us, he becomes more powerful. You do the math." Barry says that all they need to do is find Savage and get rid of him, but Hawkman taunts them.
Can Arrow and Flash together get rid of Vandal Savage? We will have to wait to find out.
