Rick Cosnett (Eddie Thawne) gave a very interesting interview to The Hollywood Reporter. He never says anything outright, but his hints are telling, to say the least — unless they’re misdirection, of course.
Possible spoilers for upcoming episodes behind the jump.
Next week’s episode (titled “Going Rogue”) features the debut of Captain Cold! It’s co-written by former Flash writer Geoff Johns, and Johns has never made a secret of his love for Cold, so I have high hopes for it.
We have no fewer than three trailers for the episode, and I’m posting them all because they’re distinctly different. First off, the American trailer:
Secondly, the Canadian trailer. I’m not going to lie — I was incredibly excited when this aired at the end of the last episode (Flash and Arrow simulcast on CTV in Canada).
And finally, the trailer from New Zealand:
There’s also an official synopsis for the fifth episode, titled “Plastique”:
KELLY FRYE GUEST STARS AS DC COMICS’ PLASTIQUE AND CLANCY BROWN GUEST STARS AS GENERAL EILING — After a bomb goes off downtown, the army, led by General Eiling (guest star Clancy Brown), rolls in and takes over the case, much to Joe’s (Jesse Martin) surprise. Suspicious, Joe tells Barry (Grant Gustin) that he and his friends at S.T.A.R. Labs should look into the army’s involvement. Wells (Tom Cavanagh) informs the team that Eiling was experimenting on his men to turn them into super-soldiers. Cisco (Carlos Valdes) confirms one of Eiling’s soldiers, Bette Sans Souci (guest star Kelly Frye), was at the bomb site. The Flash tracks her down and realizes that she’s not setting off the bombs, she is a meta-human who can blow things up just by touching them. Meanwhile, when Joe learns Iris is writing about “the streak”, he tells Barry to make her stop. Barry realizes Iris won’t listen to him so he decides to have The Flash pay her a visit.
Finally, there’s a major hint about an upcoming element of the show. I won’t spoil it here, but you can see for yourself.
What do you think of the trailers? Are you going to watch the episode?
