Duh-nuh… duh-nuh… duh-nuh, duh-nuh duh-nuh duh-nu ~~~^~~~ We’re gonna need a bigger Flash!

Mr. and Mrs. Diggle drop by Central City to let Barry and the rest of the S.T.A.R. Labs team know that King Shark is back!

A lot happened last week and we all thought the team, especially Caitlin, might get a break after what Zoom did to Jay, but apparently not. If you recall back in episode four titled “The Fury of Firestorm,” King Shark made a brief appearance before Patty Spivot tried to shoot him and then a hooded figure, later revealed as Harrison Wells from Earth 2, saved her before it was too late. We never really knew what happened to him…until now.

In the trailer for this week’s episode titled, none other than “King Shark,” Diggle lets everyone know that good old A.R.G.U.S. had him this whole time. But then he somehow got away because all he wants to do is kill Barry.

The Flash airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on the CW.

The official synopsis for “King Shark”:

“ARROW’S” DIGGLE (DAVID RAMSEY) AND LILA (AUDREY MARIE ANDERSON) CROSS OVER TO “THE FLASH” TO TAKE ON KING SHARK — When King Shark escapes from an A.R.G.U.S. holding tank, Lila (guest star Audrey Marie Anderson) and Diggle (David Ramsey) travel to Central City to warn The Flash (Grant Gustin). King Shark shows up at the West house and attacks Joe (Jesse L. Martin), Iris (Candice Patton), Wally (Keiynan Lonsdale) and Barry.

‘The Flash’ Preview: “Escape from Earth-2”

Earth-2 is all sorts of crazy and the team needs to find Zoom and a way home back to Earth-1 before it’s too late.

Warning: Spoilers Ahead if you haven’t watched last week’s episode.

Not everything is as it seems over in Earth-2 and things are happening back home that need the teams attention. Iris is a detective, Joe is now dead, Barry is, well, not The Flash, and Caitlin aka Killer Frost, Firestorm and Cisco are bad guys working for Zoom. Well, Cisco aka Reverb and Firestorm were working for Zoom, but they were killed for not following his instructions to bring The Flash in unharmed.

Now, Iris, Earth-2 Barry, Cisco and Dr. Wells need to find Zoom before he kills our Barry and Wells’ daughter. The only way to find Zoom is with the help of Killer Frost who is probably pretty angry at Zoom for killing her beloved Firestorm. Ugh…Drama!

Anyways, back on Earth-2, Caitlin is struggling to perfect the Velocity serum so that Jay can become The Flash again and protect their city while the rest of the team is gone. Metahumans have noticed that The Flash isn’t in Central City and they’ve been roaming around doing what most bad guys do and causing problems. Jay needs his speed to protect everyone and to be himself again. I don’t think Caitlin can handle losing yet another lover.

The Flash airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on the CW.

The official synopsis for “Escape from Earth-2”:

THE EXCITING CONCLUSION TO THE EARTH-2 JOURNEY — On Earth-2, the team races to find Zoom’s lair and asks for help from the most unexpected source. Meanwhile, back on Earth-1, Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) rushes to perfect Velocity-9 so that Jay (guest star Teddy Sears) can stop the Geomancer (guest star Adam Stafford).

New ‘Flash’ Trailer Teases the Return of the Reverse Flash, Introduces Killer Frost

The Flash’s midseason finale left us with feeling sorry for Harrison Wells from Earth 2. We knew that Zoom was holding his daughter hostage but we didn’t exactly know why. He is forcing Wells to make Barry faster so he can take his power by sending villain after villain down to fight the Flash.

The CW has eased our pain of waiting for more episodes, only slightly, by releasing a teaser for their midseason premiere. The trailer shows us the return of the reverse flash (isn’t he dead?) and the newly transformed Caitlin Snow sporting blonde hair as Killer Frost and saying things like, “It’s so much more fun to be bad.” Dayum!

The Flash returns with all new episodes on Tuesday, January 19 at 8/7c on the CW.

Now that they were able to separate Ronnie (Robbie Amell) and Dr. Stein (Victor Garber), things can finally get back to normal. And by normal, I mean, continue to save the people of Central City from metahumans. But mostly, the team is dealing with the aftermath that is the nuclear explosion of splitting up FIRESTORM.

Meanwhile, Barry, Joe and Cisco are figuring out how Barry’s adult DNA was found at the crime scene in his childhood home all these years later. Can Barry’s abilities let him run back in time? Can the Flash change the past?

Let’s not forget about General Eiling (Clancy Brown) and his men wanting FIRESTORM for their own military needs and will hunt down both Ronnie and Dr. Stein down to get it.

Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) is thrilled to have her fiancé back and prepares to resume their life together while Dr. Stein returns to his wife. However, when General Eiling (guest star Clancy Brown) targets Firestorm, Ronnie and Dr. Stein must decide if they are safer together or apart. Meanwhile, Mason Bridge (guest star Roger HowArth) tells Iris (Candice Patton) that there is something secretive going on at S.T.A.R. Labs and Dr. Stein gives Barry some important information about time travel.

You guys, Ronnie is alive! Well, sort of. Basically, he and Dr. Stein (Victor Garber) have merged into one person, creating the one we call Firestorm, who made his fiery debuted in the midseason finale back in December. If you remember from last week’s episode, Ronnie (Robbie Amell) was vaporized the night of the particle accelerator blast along with Dr. Stein, merging them together into one person.

On this week’s episode titled “The Nuclear Man,” Barry struggles to be the Flash while trying to date Linda (Malese Jow). Meanwhile, Joe and Cisco go back to the beginning and investigate the murder or Nora Allen (Michelle Harrison).

They deduce the best way to track Ronnie is to find Dr. Martin Stein (guest star Victor Garber) who was working on a project called F.I.R.E.S.T.O.R.M. Barry struggles to balance his duties as The Flash and his relationship with Linda Park (guest star Malese Jow), and Joe (Jesse L. Martin) enlists Cisco’s (Carlos Valdes) help to reinvestigate the murder of Nora Allen (guest star Michelle Harrison). General Eiling (Clancy Brown) returns to Central City.

Hooray! The Flash is back!

Last we saw, The Flash was up against a former S.T.A.R. Labs employee by the name of Hartley Hathaway a.k.a. Pied Piper (Andrew Mientus), who happened to know a few of Dr. Wells’ secrets. He also knows what happened to Ronnie Raymond.

In this week’s episode, Caitlin decides that she needs to move on, and so does Barry. She takes him out to a local karaoke bar to, you know, sing and make new friends 🙂

Unfortunately Caitlin strikes out, but Barry meets a girl named Linda Park (Malese Jow, The Vampire Diaries & Star-Crossed), a local sports reporter for the Central City Picture News, the same place that Iris works! Dun-dun-dunnnn! Anyways, he asks her out and Iris seems to have a reaction she wasn’t quite expecting. We know, Iris, deep down you truly love Barry, you just haven’t admitted it to yourself yet.

Meanwhile, Cisco is contemplating taking up Hartley’s offer while the team searches for Shawna, a new meta-human with teleportation powers, played by Britne Oldford.

Arrow-Flash-Producers-Talk-Upcoming-Seasons

The CW Network has picked up eight of its current series for the 2015-2016 season, it was announced today by Mark Pedowitz, President, The CW, during the network’s session at the Television Critics Association Press Tour in Pasadena.

The renewals include some obvious choices like Arrow, The Vampire Diaries, Supernatural, The Originals and The Flash, which is the most-watched show in the CW’s history. Some shows that don’t have the best ratings but definitely fan-favorites include The 100, Reign and Jane the Virgin, for which title star Gina Rodriguez is nominated for a Golden Globe.

In essence, The CW picked up all of the scripted series from its Fall 2014 schedule to next season.

“Each of these series have helped define what The CW is today, a network that is home to smart, provocative, quality programming, targeting a savvy adult audience,” said Pedowitz.  “By picking up these shows now, our executive producers can start planning next season’s storylines, and rolling these shows out throughout next season guarantees The CW will have more proven original series for our fall, midseason and summer 2016 line-ups.”

‘The Flash’ Casts ‘Spartacus’ Star Liam McIntyre as Weather Wizard

liam mcyntireWeather Wizard

If you were a fan of Spartacus then you’ll be thrilled to learn that Liam McIntyre has been tapped to play Mark Mardon, a.k.a. Weather Wizard on The CW’s Flash.

According to ComicBook.com his character will appear in the 15th and 16th episode. If you recall from the pilot, The Flash fought Clyde Mardon (Chad Rook), who was presumed dead after his helicopter was caught in a storm the night the particle accelerator exploded, and was the first “metahuman” they discovered (besides Barry of course).

Mark Mardon, the new Weather Wizard, returns to Central City to get justice for his brother and uses his powers, similar to Clyde’s, to find the man that shot him.

The Flash returns on Tuesday, Jan. 20 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on on The CW.
