This is probably going to be the most exciting episode of The Flash all season, as Mark Hamill guest stars to reprise his role as the original Trickster. Now, there seems to be a new Trickster in Central City and Joe and Barry have to visit the OG to ask for his help in finding and catching this new copycat Trickster! So much trickery 🙂
The official synopsis for “Tricksters”:
MARK HAMILL (“STAR WARS”) REPRISES HIS ROLE AS THE TRICKSTER — A copycat killer who goes by the name “The Trickster” (guest star Devon Graye) starts setting off bombs in Central City. In order to stop the villain, Barry (Grant Gustin) and Joe (Jesse L. Martin) meet with the original Trickster, a criminal mastermind named James Jesse (guest star Mark Hamill), who has been imprisoned for 20 years. Things quickly go from bad to worse when the Tricksters unite and take Henry (John Wesley Shipp) prisoner. Meanwhile, Iris (Candice Patton) asks Eddie (Rick Cosnett) for help with a case, and flashbacks show how Harrison Wells (Tom Cavanagh) came up with the idea for the particle accelerator. Ralph Hemecker directed the episode written by Andrew Kreisberg (#117). Original airdate 3/31/2015.
The Flash airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
