Watching Oliver try to balance his jobs as both the mayor and also the protector of Star City, Felicity suggests he form a new team, but Oliver resists.

The four shows will host a big crossover event this season on the CW and the network has just revealed that the sueprheroes will be battling alien race The Dominators.
“We’re taking inspiration from a DC crossover from the late 1980s known as Invasion!, which featured an alien race called The Dominators, who’d previously vexed the Legion of Superheroes,” Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow executive producer Marc Guggenheimshared with press. “We’re using cutting-edge prosthetics and computer effects to achieve a feature film-quality look which is faithful to Invasion! artist Todd McFarlane’s interpretation of the characters.”
In Invasion!, The Dominators — or Dominion as the race was called — “were extremely technologically advanced, skilled geneticists and lived in a very strict caste system where your place in society was determined by how big of a red circle was on your head.”
The Flash premieres on October 4th, Arrow on October 5th, Supergirl on October 10th and Legends of Tomorrow on October 13th.
Showrunner Marc Guggenheim just teased a table read from the 100th episode — which is at the center of the four show crossover with DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Supergirl and The Flash.
Katie Cassidy and Jamey Sheridan will also return for the episode.
In the upcoming season, the newly appointed Mayor Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) finds himself challenged as he fights on two fronts for the future of Star City. With Diggle (David Ramsey) back in the military and Thea (Willa Holland) adamant about hanging up her hood as Speedy, Team Green Arrow is down to just Oliver and Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) – but they’re no longer the only vigilantes in town.
