Barry Allen, played by Grant Gustin, and Oliver Queen, played by the infamous Stephen Amell, wake up one day only to realize that they have swapped bodies with one another. As a result, they decide to find out what happened previously. They want to know what interfered with the timeline that made them switch bodies. You can imagine how the Flash would look in the Arrow’s costume, and vice versa.
But that isn’t such a big deal, until they present their case to Team Flash. The members of the team don’t believe them. This confuses because they think Barry is Oliver and Oliver is Barry. For that, the two superheroes seek help from Supergirl/Kara, played by Melissa Benoist. Supergirl helps Barry and Olive travel to Smallville on Earth-38, where they meet Clark Kent, Supergirl’s cousin.
