Mark Hamill and John Wesley Shipp

The CW has released the official synopsis for The Flash‘s first season’s 17th episode: “Tricksters”.

If you thought the show couldn’t get better, we are happy to prove you wrong! Mark Hamill returns to reprise his role as Trickster, from the 1990 series of The Flash. The show seems more and more like a continuation of the 90’s series – or that’s just my inner fanboy.

Anyways, Hamill is a fan-favorite, and bringing him back to reprise such role just adds him to the homage galore the 2014’s The Flash has shown us. John Wesley Shipp, who portrayed Flash in the 90’s series will reprise his role as Barry’s father in said episode, making this a reunion of sorts.

Official Synopsis:

Tricksters” — (8:00-9:00 p.m. ET) (TV-PG, V) (HDTV)

MARK HAMILL (“STAR WARS”) REPRISES HIS ROLE AS THE TRICKSTER — A copycat killer who goes by the name “The Trickster” (guest star Devon Graye) starts setting off bombs in Central City. In order to stop the villain, Barry (Grant Gustin) and Joe (Jesse L. Martin) meet with the original Trickster, a criminal mastermind named James Jesse (guest star Mark Hamill), who has been imprisoned for 20 years. Things quickly go from bad to worse when the Tricksters unite and take Henry (John Wesley Shipp) prisoner. Meanwhile, Iris (Candice Patton) asks Eddie (Rick Cosnett) for help with a case, and flashbacks show how Harrison Wells (Tom Cavanagh) came up with the idea for the particle accelerator. Ralph Hemecker directed the episode written by Andrew Kreisberg (#117). Original airdate 3/31/2015.
