Familiar Faces Make Shock Returns In Descriptions For Upcoming Episodes Of Arrow And The Flash

Flash Zoom

The CW has released the official descriptions for two more of this month’s episodes of Arrow and The Flash, and they both feature the return of some familiar faces.

A foe of Barry Allen’s will be making their presence felt in Star City, while the Scarlet Speedster will come face to face with two members of the Thawne family when he travels back in time.

For starters, here’s what’s to come in Arrow‘s “Beacon Of Hope”:

Brie Larvan (guest star Emily Kinney) breaks out of jail and turns up at Palmer Tech threatening to kill everyone unless she gets the bio-chip that is implanted in Felicity’s (Emily Bett Rickards) spine. When Oliver (Stephen Amell) realizes that Felicity, Thea (Willa Holland) and Donna (guest star Charlotte Ross) are trapped in Palmer Tech with everyone else, he looks to a surprising ally to help Team Arrow save the day. Michael Schultz directed the episode written by Ben Sokolowski & Brian Ford Sullivan.

That sounds a bit like a filler episode in all honesty, but it should still be good fun for fans and we’re definitely looking forward to it.

Over on The Flash, Barry is going to get one step closer to Zoom by journeying back in time in order to use the sinister Harrison Wells (Reverse-Flash in disguise) to learn how to get faster.

Here’s the official synopsis for the episode:

After the shocking revelation that Zoom is Jay Garrick (Teddy Sears), Barry (Grant Gustin) is more determined than ever to get back to Earth-2 to stop Zoom forever. Desperate to find a way to increase his speed, Barry decides to travel back in time and masquerade as his earlier self in order to get his arch-nemesis, Dr. Harrison Wells/Eobard Thawne (Tom Cavanagh), to teach him how to run faster. However, things don’t go as planned and Barry is stunned to face familiar foe Hartley Rathaway (guest star Andy Mientus), as well as old friend Eddie Thawne (guest star Rick Cosnett). Iris (Candice Patton) makes peace with her past in order to embrace her future. Alice Troughton directed the episode penned by Aaron Helbing and Todd Helbing.

So, big things are on the way for both Arrow and The Flash then, and we can’t wait to see what the two shows have in store for us when they return.
