Here's Andrew Kreisberg on how The Flash and Captain Cold's relationship changes ahead of the character heading to the Arrow/Flash spinoff:
A couple of the Rogues — Captain Cold and Heat Wave — are planned to appear in the pending spinoff series. Does that factor into the "Flash" storyline as planned?
Yes, entirely. I think what you'll see on both shows is we'll be building up to the spinoff. As much as "Flash" and "Arrow" are connected, "Flash" and "Arrow" and the new show are going to be interconnected, so you'll be seeing the evolution of some of these characters. And obviously, that was part of the decision to have Snart find out Barry's identity, because we knew the trajectory that those characters would be going on and how they'd be playing off of each other. And there's some great scenes coming up between Wentworth [Miller] and Grant [Gustin] in episode 22 which is further evidence of Snart's changing character and where we'll find him in the new show.
Here's a press release for "All-Star Team Up":
ARROW'S FELICITY SMOAK (EMILY BETT RICKARDS) AND RAY PALMER (BRANDON ROUTH) ARRIVE IN CENTRAL CITY; EMILY KINNEY ("The Walking Dead") GUETS STARS AS BRIE LARVIN — Barry (Grant Gustin) is surprised when Felicity Smoak (guest star Emily Bett Rickards) arrives from Starling City along with her boyfriend, Ray Palmer (guest star Brandon Routh), who flies in as the Atom. They've come to visit S.T.A.R. Labs as Ray needs help with his suit. Their timing turns out to be fortuitous because it's all hands on deck after a meta human named Brie Larvin (guest star Emily Kinney) unleashes hundreds of robotic bees to attack and kill her former co-workers, including Dr. Tina McGee (guest star Amanda Pays). A group dinner with Barry, Felicity, Ray, Iris (Candice Patton) and Eddie (RickCosnett) turns into a disaster.

HENRY AND ABE FINALLY DISCOVER THE GUT-WRENCHING TRUTH, ON ABC'S "FOREVER" "The Night in Question" – Henry tackles the most important case of his career: the disappearance of the love of his life, Abigail, after she left him. Desperate to find out where she might have gone, Abe, unbeknownst to Henry, secretly contacts Lucas to help find clues to her whereabouts. Already involved in a murder investigation with Jo, Henry involves Lucas and the team of detectives under the guise of searching for "Abe's mother" — never letting on his own relationship with Abigail.

J. August Richards talks about Deathlok's powerset following his return to the show:
Let's see — I do have some new powers, though I think you'll see them unfold over time. I mean, at the core he still is who he is. He has a bunch of mechanical parts that do a bunch of interesting things. This armpiece shoots rockets, and he's still super-strong from the Centipede that he got in the first episode. Even in the comics, I feel like he's a character with a thousand powers that constantly unfold. It's a character with a lot of possibilities. And again, even with reading the comic, I feel like I can't put a finger on *all* of his powers and the things that come over time.
Ari Millen discusses the difference between the Castor and Leda Clones:
Unlike the Leda clones, the Castor brothers were raised self-aware, which attributes to their "very close-knit wolf pack of a military upbringing," according to Millen. "Just like any sets of brothers, there's a real closeness. They like taking the piss out of each other. They can be vicious. There's also a lot of love there."

Ronald D. Moore talks about a slight change of setting for a scene from the books in the show:
"Instead of going to France and playing all the abbey scenes there, I chose to keep the abbey in Scotland so there is still a danger to them and a need to escape." But, he reassures fans of the books, "the abbey scenes are still there."

Cory Michael Smith talks about what's in store for Edward Nygma:
We've ended in [Episode] 18 where he finally — he's taking bigger challenges, getting a little more brave. He finally goes up to Kristen [Kringle] and actually asks her on a date rather than just giving her cupcakes and bullets and stuff. So he's really reaching out. That's a big deal. It's a *really* big deal, and he totally gets shot down. And I asked the director — I'm like, "Look. We've been following this little love interest for a while now. At a certain point, this is just really frustrating, really frustrating." I've been nothing but kind to her and enthusiastic and shown her exactly how I feel. And to get just shut down because there's another guy already, it's frustrating. So that's a moment, a flash of very much darker things that Edward has inside that we will unlock the door to and take a peek at. It's quite horrifying, really, the man inside.
There's also a bevy of clips from "Beasts of Prey" that have been released: 8 in total. Check out four below, and go to the link to see the rest. [ Coming Soon]
