It’s not often that advance promotional material paints such an odd picture of what’s to come, but next week’s episode of The Flash looks to be one of those instances. To be more specific, I’m talking about when the trailer and promo photos seemingly have nothing to do with each other and focus on drastically different plot threads.
If you’ll recall, the first video circulating ahead of “News Flash” showed Nora in an altered state of mind, looking hellbent on killing her father, that being the Scarlet Speedster himself. And oddly enough, the gallery we have for you today focuses on what appears to be a charity softball game.
So, as you navigate the slideshow found below, be prepared to see a side of Barry Allen we don’t often encounter. If anything, he’s finally living up to the nickname “Slugger” given to him by his late father.
For some reason, Nora gets involved in the game – and in her XS costume, no less – so maybe this’ll factor into whatever is messing with her head. And speaking of Ms. West-Allen, we’re given the impression she’s made a new friend at Jitters, so we’ll have to see where that goes.
