Season two of The Flash has gotten off to a great start, and while the series has done an excellent job of bringing us up to speed with where the main characters are, much of the focus has been on introducing new heroes and villains, like Jay Garrick and Zoom. However, next week’s instalment of the hit show will bring back fan-favourite villain Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller).
While he briefly appeared in the premiere as part of a dream sequence, this is the first time we’ll be seeing Cold since it was announced that he’ll be taking on a starring role in DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. As a result, it’s going to be very exciting to see if this episode helps to set the stage for his appearance there in any way or if that’s being saved for the upcoming Arrow/The Flash crossover episode.
We’ll just have to wait and see on that, but The CW has today released a new batch of promotional images from “Family of Rogues” which give us a better idea as to what we should expect from the episode, which is described as follows:
When Barry (Grant Gustin) and the team find out Captain Cold (guest star Wentworth Miller) has been kidnapped, they form an uneasy alliance with his sister, Lisa (guest star Peyton List). However, Barry feels double-crossed when he finds out Snart is working with his father, Lewis Snart (guest star Michael Ironside) on a heist. Meanwhile, Joe (Jesse L. Martin) is faced with a difficult decision. John Showalter directed the episode written by Julian Meiojas & Katherine Walczak.
Interestingly, Captain Cold isn’t pictured here with his suit on, but with the villain’s father coming into play in this instalment, this most definitely looks set to be a very different episode of The Flash.
