"Crisis" Management: For The Flash, There's No Such Thing as "No Way Out" [VIDEO]

With the new year upon us, The CW's "Arrowverse" is waking from its long winter's nap to the start of some major changes. With only two episodes remaining, Arrow is shuffling off the network's programming coil – making The Flash the "elder states-show" of the "Arrowverse". Ruby Rose-starrer Batwoman continues solidifying her role in the changing universe, as well as developing a "World's Finest" relationship with Supergirl and expanding the Batman mythos in CW's DCU. With "Crisis on Infinite Earths" unleashed, expect even more dramatic changes – including the addition of Black Lightning and DC's Legends of Tomorrow as well as new pilots Superman & Lois and Green Arrow and the Canaries.

But before a new "Arrowverse" can be born, we need to finish making a few "changes" to the multiverse we kinda-sorta still have – which is exactly what will happen when our heroes look to "Take Back the Worlds" as the mega crossover concludes with a double-header of Arrow and DC's Legends of Tomorrow on Tuesday, January 14.

But things are going to get a lot darker before the dawn – can Barry (Grant Gustin) hold it together to be The Flash that they need… now more than ever?

The CW also released a very Anti-Monitor (Lamonica Garrett)-focused poster for the two-part finale – though our biggest takeaway? Stephen Amell's Ollie as… Green Spectre?
