Mark Hamill (Star Wars) makes his The Flash debut in Episode 17, titled ‘Tricksters‘, which was written by Andrew Kreisberg and directed by Ralph Hemecker.

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.

The Flash Season 1 continues every Sunday on Sky1 in the UK. Find out more about the comics that inspired the series with the 100 All-Time Greatest Comics bookazine!
