First Look At CW’s Solovar, And More

We’ll be getting our first good look at Gorilla City next week with Tuesday’s episode “Attack on Gorilla City”, and the CW has released the first images of Solovar. He obviously looks quite different than his comics incarnation, probably to more easily distinguish him from Grodd and other gorillas. But he looks pretty good in these stills.

He’s obviously going to clash with Barry in some way, although it’s not yet clear how. The synopsis for the episode says that he’s planning to invade Earth-1, but Team Flash gets that information from Grodd, who may not be a truthful source. So we’ll probably see the current geo-political situation in Gorilla City during these episodes and find out if it’s as we might expect, which may be one of the stranger sentences I’ve ever written.

Also, here’s the official synopsis for the March 7th episode of The Flash, titled “The Wrath of Savitar”.

The Flash 3×15 “The Wrath of Savitar”
SAVITAR VISITS WALLY – While training with Barry (Grant Gustin), Wally (Keiynan Lonsdale) starts to have visions of Savitar, which he hides from the team. A dangerous secret threatens Barry and Iris’ (Candice Patton) happiness. Alexandra LaRoche directed the episode written by Andrew Kreisberg & Andrew Wilder (FLA315). Original airdate 3/7/2017.

Looking forward to Solovar and the return of Savitar? What do you hope to see in these episodes? Share your thoughts!

“Attack on Central City” Synopsis

The CW has released the official synopsis for the second half of the two-part Grodd story, titled “Attack on Central City”. It will air on February 28th. You may recall the news reference to a gorilla attack on the city during Barry’s and Cisco’s future time jump, so obviously that part of history is also coming true, which will no doubt make Team Flash very nervous.

“Attack on Central City”
When Grodd (voiced by David Sobolov) and his army of gorillas bring the battle to Earth-1, The Flash (Grant Gustin) and team must find a way to stop them before they destroy Central City. Gypsy (guest star Jessica Camacho) returns to join the fight. Meanwhile, Jesse Quick (guest star Violett Beane) decides she wants to stay with Wally (Keiynan Lonsdale) on Earth-1. Dermott Downs directed the episode with story by Todd Helbing and teleplay by Benjamin Raab & Deric A. Hughes (#314). Original airdate 2/28/2017.

“Attack on Gorilla City” Synopsis, And More

The CW has released some official still images from next week’s episode of The Flash, titled “Untouchable”. You can see the rest of them at

And they’ve also released the official synopsis for February 21st’s episode of The Flash, called “Attack on Gorilla City” (I think that sums up the plot fairly well). It will be part one of a two-episode story arc.

The Flash 3×13 “Attack on Gorilla City”
BARRY AND TEAM TRAVEL TO GORILLA CITY AND FACE GRODD – When Jesse Quick (guest star Violett Beane) informs the team that her father (Tom Cavanagh) has been abducted, Barry (Grant Gustin), Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker), Cisco (Carlos Valdes) and Julian (Tom Felton) voyage to Earth-2 on a rescue mission to save Harry from Gorilla City. As they trek through the forest, Barry and the team are immediately captured and brought to Grodd (voiced by David Sobolov). Grodd tells them he needs their help to stop Solovar (voiced by Keith David), the leader of Gorilla City, as Solovar wants to invade Earth-1. Meanwhile, back on Earth-1, Jesse and Kid Flash (Keiynan Lonsdale) hit the streets to stop a metahuman that can control gravity, with H.R. and Joe (Jesse L. Martin) guiding them from S.T.A.R Labs. Dermott Downs directed the episode with story by Andrew Kresiberg and teleplay by Aaron Helbing & David Kob (FLA313). Original airdate 2/21/2017.

There will be no episode on Valentine’s Day, by the way. Presumably they realized that many people will be busy that evening.

Looking forward to Gorilla City and more Earth-2? What do you hope to see in that arc?

“Untouchable” Teaser

Here’s the extended trailer for next week’s episode of The Flash, titled “Untouchable”. The villain of the episode will be a somewhat different incarnation of Clive Yorkin, who apparently has a death touch instead of the ability to drain fear and energy from a victim.

Flash TV Roundup

This week’s episode of The Flash is titled “Dead Or Alive”, and you can see more official image stills from it at Flash TV News.

Plus, here’s the synopsis for next week’s episode, titled “Untouchable”. The episode will feature an old comics villain I never expected to see in the series!

The Flash 3×12 “Untouchable”
THE TOUCH OF DEATH – Barry (Grant Gustin) and the team at S.T.A.R. Labs work together to bring down Clive Yorkin (guest star Matthew Kevin Anderson), a criminal meta-human who is methodically killing people by causing them to decompose at an accelerated rate. Joe (Jesse L. Martin) becomes his next target but it’s Iris (Candice Patton) who is caught in the crossfire. The Flash mentors Kid Flash (Keiynan Lonsdale) and begins to elevate the newer speedster’s training to another level. Rob Hardy directed the episode written by Brooke Roberts and Judalina Neira.

And finally, a couple of links about the upcoming musical crossover between The Flash and Supergirl. TV Guide tells us a bit about who will sing in the episode (mostly people from the aforementioned two series, but also includes Arrow/Legends of Tomorrow‘s John Barrowman and LoT‘s Victor Garber), and the air date. It will begin on Supergirl on March 20th, and conclude on The Flash on March 21st.

The Music Meister has been cast for the crossover; he will be played by Glee actor Darren Criss, who appeared on the series with Grant Gustin and Melissa Benoist. I was hoping Neil Patrick Harris would reprise the role, but he may have been too busy with a different ongoing series.
