The CW has released a new promo for the latter half of the television season, titled “Suit Up”. It features the DCTV characters getting ready for action…except Barry, who’s late as always.
The mid-season break ends on January 15th with Supergirl, and The Flash returns the next night with “The Trial of the Flash”. Black Lightning debuts after The Flash does, and includes Peter Gambi amongst its cast; in the comics, Peter was the brother of Rogues’ tailor Paul. It’s not clear if there’ll ever be a connection to The Flash show, as Paul Gambi has yet to debut in it (even if there was an easter egg cameo in the pilot episode).
Looking forward to the shows’ return? What do you hope to see in this half of the season?

Now we know who is really in charge of the underworld in Central City…and where they are hiding out. More than that, there is someone who knows all of Barry’s secrets and is willing to sell him out. What we don’t know is how…and what else may be hiding within the walls of the supposedly impenetrable walls of Iron Heights. This issue we start to see all of the plans coming together, and it is really bad news for the Scarlet Speedster. Want to know more? Follow us after the break!
Not to be too punny, but I’m running behind on this review…and I’ll explain later in this post. But, I didn’t want to miss out on the chance to say a few words about this issue. It gives us an RIP on an interesting character, and sets up a new status quo for the Rogues. Just who died, and what do I mean about the Rogues? Follow us after the jump to learn more!
