The CW’s Flash isn’t slowing down by any means and is on a bit of a streak, if you will. After a week off due to midterm elections, The Flash is back and with a new villain. This week’s episode marks the debut of Bette Sans Souci a.k.a. DC Comics villain Plastique played by Kelly Frye (Rake).
After a bomb goes off in Central City, General Eiling (Clancy Brown) leads the army in and essentially takes over the case, which Joe is not too happy about. He tells Barry about what’s going on and that he and his buddies over at S.T.A.R. Labs should look into the army’s involvement and why they’re so interested. According to Dr. Wells, Eiling has been experimenting on his men, turning them into super soldiers (Of course he has). We find out that the one and only Bette Sans Souci was at the bomb site and is not only setting off the bombs, but that she IS the bomb. She can blow things up just by touching them.
Meanwhile, Iris is completely obsessed with “the streak,” and has even started a blog about him and is tracking all the sightings that are being reported around town. Joe isn’t too keen on this and tells Barry to make her stop, only she won’t listen, so he has to tell as The Flash. I mean, we all know that will only make things worse and pique her interest even more so than before.
The network has released the official synopsis along with some stills from the episode titled “Plastique,” airing Tuesday, Nov. 11 at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
KELLY FRYE GUEST STARS AS DC COMICS’ PLASTIQUE AND CLANCY BROWN GUEST STARS AS GENERAL EILING — After a bomb goes off downtown, the army, led by General Eiling (guest star Clancy Brown), rolls in and takes over the case, much to Joe’s (Jesse Martin) surprise. Suspicious, Joe tells Barry (Grant Gustin) that he and his friends at S.T.A.R. Labs should look into the army’s involvement. Wells (Tom Cavanagh) informs the team that Eiling was experimenting on his men to turn them into super soldiers. Cisco (Carlos Valdes) confirms one of Eiling’s soldiers, Bette Sans Souci (guest star Kelly Frye), was at the bomb site. The Flash tracks her down and realizes that she’s not setting off the bombs, she is a meta-human who can blow things up just by touching them. Meanwhile, when Joe learns Iris is writing about “the streak,” he tells Barry to make her stop. Barry realizes Iris won’t listen to him so he decides to have The Flash pay her a visit.
