Extended Promo For The Flash Midseason Premiere Arrives


Aside from having the opportunity to join Batman in a sure to be epic comic book team-up this spring, the immediate future for The Flash looks to be every bit as intense as it is exciting. Thanks to this newly released extended promo, counting down the seven remaining days until the midseason premiere, “Borrowing Problems from the Future,” just got even harder.

While we await the return of Rick Cosnett, we’ll turn out attention to Barry Allen attempting to avert the brutal murder of his beloved Iris West at the hands of Savitar that’s set to occur several months in the future. I think Barry’s obsession with changing the past has now been eclipsed by his desire to shape the future, which may very well be the moral of season 3. In other words, so many of us may focus on our past, which we have no ability to change, and should instead work toward a brighter tomorrow.

Also of note is Caitlin Snow continuing to struggle with becoming Killer Frost. Although she averted the transition in the episode that bore her very name, let’s face it: We all know it’s coming and I, for one, hope that she starts having an ice day on regular basis sooner rather than later.

For more details, be sure to check out the official synopsis below:

Barry (Grant Gustin) is tormented by his vision of the future where Iris (Candice Patton) is murdered by Savitar. When a criminal named Plunder (guest star Stephen Huszar) shows up in Central City, Barry recalls the villain’s presence in his vision of the future and fears that if he catches Plunder, it will cement Iris’ fate. Confused about Barry’s hesitation to stop Plunder, Wally (Keiynan Lonsdale) decides to step in as Kid Flash. Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) offers Julian (Tom Felton) a job. Millicent Shelton directed the episode written by Grainne Godfree & David Kob.

The Flash returns with new episodes on Tuesday, January 24 on The CW.
