The Flash returns to US screens this month for the second half of Season 1. The opener, titled ‘Revenge Of The Rogues‘, is directed by Nick Copus and written by Geoff Johns and Kai Yu Wu. It also guest stars Wentworth Miller as Captain Cold, Dominic Purcell as Heat Wave (who both play brothers on drama series Prison Break) and Andy Mientus (Smash) as Pied Piper. Read the official synopsis below:
Leonard Snart AKA Captain Cold returns to Central City with a new hotheaded partner in tow – Mick Rory AKA Heat Wave. The duo plan to steal a multi-million dollar painting, but Cold has another agenda while in town – to set a trap for The Flash. Snart and Mick kidnap someone close to The Flash and threaten to kill them unless The Flash shows up for a battle of fire and ice. Barry tells Joe (Jesse L. Martin) he isn’t sure he should take on Snart again after the casualties that happened the last time they fought. Meanwhile, Barry asks Dr. Wells (Tom Cavanagh), Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) and Cisco (Carlos Valdes) to help him double his training efforts so he’s ready for the Reverse Flash when he returns to Central City. Iris (Candice Patton) deals with the aftermath of Barry’s confession, and Cisco makes the CCPD a new shield.
‘Revenge of the Rogues‘ airs on 20 January on The CW, a day before the Arrow mid-season premiere ‘Left Behind‘.
The Flash Season 1 returns 20 January 2015 on The CW and soon after on Sky1 HD in the UK. For more on the comics that have inspired the show, pick up our 100 All-Time Greatest Comics bookazine now!
