While The Flash Takes A Break, The Villains Can Play

The Flash has been stopped in his tracks, and not by a super villain. This time it’s the U.S. elections causing The Flash to take a break on Tuesday. The next episode will air on November 11 and feature guest stars Kelly Frye as Bette Sans Souci, better known as villainess Plastique, and Clancy Brown as General Eiling.

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. Dermott Downs directed the episode written by Aaron Helbing & Todd Helbing & Brooke Eikmeier (#105).

“On the run from the shadow forces in the U.S. government trying to turn her into a human weapon,” said executive producer Andrew Kreisberg, “she finds an ally in fellow meta-human: The Flash.”

Plastique and The General aren’t the only villains that will keep the Scarlet Speedster on his feet, and it seems like fans of the show may finally see Barry Allen officially take on his superheroic name. During this week’s episode, Barry Allen almost told Detective Joe West that he wanted to be called “The Flash,” and The CW has revealed the synopsis for the series’ November 18 episode, “The Flash is Born.”

GREG FINLEY GUEST STARS AS DC COMICS’ VILLAIN GIRDER — The Flash (Grant Gustin) faces a new meta-human named Tony (guest star Greg Finley, “Star-Crossed,” “Secret Life of the American Teenager”), who can turn himself into girded steel at will. While Dr. Wells (Tom Cavanagh) and Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) are concerned about Barry’s safety, Cisco (Carlos Valdes) comes up with a plan to take Tony down. Meanwhile, Iris’s (Candice Patton) blog on The Flash gets her into trouble, and Eddie (Rick Cosnett) witnesses Tony’s abilities firsthand and begins to ask questions that Joe (Jesse L. Martin) doesn’t want answered. Joe asks Dr. Wells to help him solve Nora Allen’s murder. Millicent Shelton directed the episode written by Jaime Paglia & Chris Rafferty (#106). Original airdate 11/18/2014.
