The Flash: New Featurette Teases DeVoe’s Grand Plan


After being forced into hibernation for a few weeks thanks to the 2018 Winter Olympics, The Flash is finally ready to get back to business. And with Barry Allen now finally out of the clink, we hope the show can recapture some of the old magic – or lightning in a bottle, if we’re to be more on the nose.

So, as DeVoe continues to body-hop – this time in the skin of Hazard – Team Flash make a mad dash to locate the rest of the bus metas, as laid out in a new featurette that you can view at the top. Taking us on the guided tour is none other than executive producer Todd Helbing, who gives us a decent idea of what to expect from “Subject 9.”

Speaking of which, one can’t help but assume that “Subject 9” is that of the Fiddler, who’s out to prove that guest characters can get lamer. Fine, we’ll have to see how it’s all executed, but even if this is an adaptation of a character from the classic Flash of Two Worlds story, it’s just fact that not every villain from yesteryear appeals to modern sensibilities.

Come to think of it, it wouldn’t surprise us in the slightest if she were to serve as DeVoe’s next vessel, but you have to think that inhabiting Barry’s skin is his endgame. Really, with his intellect and other powers recently gained, putting him in the body of a speedster would make him virtually unstoppable.

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

RALPH FEARS FOR HIS LIFE — Barry (Grant Gustin) meets a powerful woman whose abilities could help him in his battle with DeVoe (guest star Sugar Lyn Beard). Meanwhile, after learning that DeVoe is targeting everyone who was on the bus, Ralph (Hartley Sawyer) decides he doesn’t want to be a hero anymore, his only concern is staying alive. Harry (Tom Cavanagh) offers to help Joe (Jesse L. Martin). Ralph Hemecker directed the episode written by Mike Alber & Gabe Snyder (#414).

The Flash returns with new episodes tonight on The CW.
