Team Flash are about to take a page out of their good pal Ray Palmer/The Atom’s book in the next episode of The Flash when they’re shrunk by the metahuman-of-the-week.
Following on from the previous installment, Barry Allen has asked his friends to try and clear the name of his new pal Big Sir/Dave (Bill Goldberg). As they investigate, Cisco, Ralph and Joe come across Sylbert Rundin (Derek Mars), a supervillain known as Dwarfstar in the comics, who leaves them at a fraction of their size. Obviously, we’ll have to wait for the episode itself to see this effect in action, but the photo showing Joe looking at the ground seems to depict the moment they’re shrunk.
Elsewhere, the pics give us a look at Joe and Cecile having a chat at the West house and then going for a couples therapy session. The official synopsis for the episode reveals what this hiccup in their relationship could be about: as a weird quirk of being pregnant in the metahuman-filled Central City, Cecile will temporarily develop telepathic powers. This will apparently start a trend for supporting characters gaining abilities for a week, as recent set photos show that Iris West will become a speedster for a day in an upcoming episode.
For more, here’s the plot summary for “Honey, I Shrunk Team Flash”:
