‘The Flash’ episode 7 preview: ‘Power Outage’ brings Clock King to Central City

The Flash -As big fans of Robert Knepper, we are very much thrilled to see Clock King making his jump over to “The Flash” next week. Is the villain someone we associate more with Batman? Sure, but hopefully Blackout will balance things out.

“Power Outage” should hopefully be a fun episode of this show, given that you have a variety of different enemies for Barry Allen to face off against. Sure, there is someone who will challenge him on a physical level, but the great thing about William Tockman as a villain is his intelligence. We’re much more interested in characters that pose a huge challenge on a mental level, and he will have that in spades. (How will he be stopped here with Felicity?)

If you want to see some other updates right now in terms of what to expect from this episode, just be sure to take a look at the official synopsis below:

“The Flash (Barry Allen) goes up against Farooq aka Blackout (guest star Michael Reventar), a metahuman who can harness electricity. During their battle, Farooq zaps The Flash and siphons all his electricity, leaving The Flash without his speed. Dr. Wells (Tom Cavanagh), Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) and Cisco (Carlos Valdes) work to reverse the effects on Barry, but their efforts are disrupted when Farooq comes banging on S.T.A.R. Labs doors in search of Wells, who he blames for his accident. Without Barry’s powers to protect them, the group must figure out a way to save themselves from the metahuman. Meanwhile, Tockman (guest star Robert Knepper) manages a coup inside the Central City police department and takes several people hostage, including Joe (Jesse L. Martin) and Iris (Candice Patton). While Iris is sure The Flash will save them, Eddie (Rick Cosnett) has a trick up his sleeve.”

For those waiting until the “Arrow” crossover episode, don’t worry; that installment will come a week from Tuesday.
