Is The Flash using people as bait again? It didn't work out so well for him in last week's episode, "Enter Zoom."
Something is up, anyway. In a newly-released photo from the forthcoming Arrow/The Flash crossover that will kickstart DC's Legends of Tomorrow, The Flash and Green Arrow stand beside Hawkman and Hawkgirl...who are handcuffed.
It doesn't look like they're being captured, but rather offered up. To whom? The most likely choice seems to be Vandal Savage, but why?
Based on the filename of the image (which we found at TV Insider), the image comes from the Arrow episode, titled "Legends of Yesterday."
You can check out the synopses for both episodes below.
