The Flash is back! And I'm so so happy about it. After an endless hiatus, the show returns to The CW tonight at 8/7c, and we have a preview of Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller) and Heat Wave (Miller's Prison Break co-star Dominic Purcell) getting up to some climate-related antics in their attempt to ensnare our pal Barry.
Other villains to look forward to in the latter half of the season, according to Executive Producer Andrew Kreisberg at a recent TCA presentation:
We have Pied Piper played by Andy Mientus, who’s in two episodes, who’s great. We have Liam McIntyre as the Weather Wizard — continuing our strong run of stealing from ‘Spartacus.’ And Mark Hamill is The Trickster. It was an idea that we had early on. We’re actually going to have both the James Jesse Trickster and Axel Walker Trickster. So the episode is called ‘Tricksters.’ There’s a lot of callbacks to the old show… but it’s a [new] version of the character. Geoff Johns and I got to talk to Mark on the phone and he said he couldn’t believe his luck that his two favorite roles had come back to him this year. That made us really happy and we’re really excited about it.
A bunch more quotes from the cast and crew at the link. Meet me here tomorrow morning to discuss tonight's episode - finally!
