In this week’s episode, The Flash comes across a new meta-human named Tony (Greg Finley) who can turn himself into girded steel at will, and also happens to be a former bully to Barry. Cisco, Dr. Wells and Caitlin have to figure out a way to protect Barry from the metallic meta-human and take him down. We’re also assuming that he looses his nickname “The Streak” and finally becomes “The Flash,” per the episode title.
Meanwhile, Iris gets into trouble with her blog, as we all knew she would, and Eddie see what Tony can do and becomes suspicious. He starts asking questions that has everyone including Joe concerned.
The network has released the official synopsis along with some stills from the episode titled “The Flash is Born,” airing Tuesday, Nov. 18 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on on The CW.
