Following up on a highly emotional, pivotal episode directed by the one and only Kevin Smith, The Flash looks to crank things up to “11” in this season’s penultimate episode, which is set to air next week.
Now, I would normally say that a fine show such as this isn’t resting on its laurels, but “Invincible” will see the debut of the much talked about Earth-2 doppelganger of Laurel Lance (see what I did there?), also known as Black Siren. The kicker is that actress Katie Cassidy gets to see how the other half lives by inhabiting the role of a villain. That’s right, it’s likely time to cast aside theories that this incarnation of Laurel will join Team Arrow, for she is the one leading Zoom’s army of metahumans.
Personally, I think we should keep an eye on Wally West, who is said to get in on the action. Although he didn’t exhibit any speedster-like abilities when failing to catch Joe’s ill-fated coffee mug last night, the young man will likely take his first strides toward becoming the iconic Kid Flash sometime soon.
For more details, check out the official synopsis below:
KATIE CASSIDY GUEST STARS AS BLACK SIREN – After Zoom (guest star Teddy Sears) unleashes an army of Earth-2 meta-humans on Central City, Barry (Grant Gustin) is shaken when he sees their leader is the Black Canary’s Earth-2 doppelganger, the Black Siren (guest star Katie Cassidy). Meanwhile, Wally (Keiynan Lonsdale) takes to the streets to help The Flash stop the meta-humans, which worries Joe (Jesse L. Martin). Iris (Candice Patton) and Henry (guest star John Wesley Shipp) are concerned about Barry taking on Zoom. Jesse Warn directed the episode with story by Greg Berlanti & Andrew Kreisberg and teleplay by Brooke Roberts & David Kob (#222). Original airdate 5/17/2016.
