PaleyFest 2015: Arrow and The Flash trailers

Both the Arrow and Flash PaleyFest panels took place on the 14th, and both sessions mentioned a new trailer with scenes for the remainder of each show’s season. Those watching the panels through video on demand (VOD) were not treated to the trailers that the live audience got. Two days later, both trailers have been uploaded to the Warner Bros’ official YouTube channel. Check them out below and see if you’ve caught the same things I did (The Flash trailer seemed to contain more easter eggs). 
Note: Both trailers are kinda spoiler heavy

0:30- Malcolm Merlyn (John Barrowman) survives Nanda Parbat.
0:43- Shado (Celina Jade) makes a reappearance.
0:46- “Suicide Squad rides again.” There were some rumblings of a Suicide Squad TV spinoff, but with a confirmed film, the TV counterpart might not be as feasible.
0:55 to 1:02- Hey look, Daniel Shaw Ray Palmer’s (Brandon Routh) being a dick.
1:08- Quentin Lance (Paul Blackthorne) appears to be captured by Ra’s al Ghul (Matt Nable). Could he be the upcoming death (see here) that’s supposed to occur later this season?
1:14- A copycat Arrow??
1:22 and 1:30 to 1:36-Captain Lance is uncovering everybody’s secret identity. The scene with Laurel/Black Canary (Katie Cassidy) might just be cut together to look like he does, but he seems to definitely have found out the Arrow (Stephen Amell) is Oliver Queen, as the last few seconds consists of Lance expressing his anger towards Queen and then finally with him busting into the foundry.
Bonus 1:23- Roy Harper (Colton Haynes) and Thea Queen (Willa Holland) makeup kiss. Yayyyyy.

0:35- Cisco Ramon (Carlos Valdes) seems to be working on the ATOM suit in the background
0:47 to 0:55- You get a crossover, you get a crossover, EVERYBODY gets a crossover! Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards) makes her way back to Central City. Palmer joins her and Laurel makes an appearance (though it doesn’t appear as if she arrives with Smoak and Palmer).
1:08 to 1:13- First look at James Jesse/Trickster (Mark Hamill)
1:19- Cisco appears to be wearing the trademark gold tinted visors that Vibe (the hero his comic counterpart becomes) usually wears.
1:30 to 1:36- Eddie, what the F$#k?!
1:42- Here, you get a crossover too, Captain Lance.
1:49- Two Flashes! This somewhat mirrors 1:14 in the Arrow trailer. While the second archer appears to be a copycat, two Flashes could potentially point towards Barry achieving time travel.
1:51- Blink and you’ll miss it, but a blonde turns around in her chair. In her background is several monitors. The actress appears to be Emily Kinney (Beth from the Walking Dead) who will face off against Felicity, according to the PaleyFest panel.

Did I miss anything? Anything you’re particularly excited about? Shoot a comment below!

    1:58 – What in the world is that? Does Heatwave finally gets a costume?

    What is PaleyFest btw? Not one of the comic book conventions I ever heard of.

      My DC knowledge is pretty much limited to the show, but I was super curious who that was at 1:58 on the Flash trailer lol XD

      PaleyFest is kinda like a festival for just TV (I’m fairly certain they don’t do movies). I’ve only ever watched the VODs, but they seem to all just consist of panels.
