It has been a long wait for the return of “The Flash,” but come Tuesday, January 20, that will finally be over! “Revenge of the Rogues” is the title for the winter premiere, and the name of the game is going to be recovery for Barry Allen. Just look at the state of Barry Allen right now: He feels defeated after what happened with Reverse Flash, and he also has to deal with the aftermath of what he told Iris.
Unfortunately, Barry is not going to get much time at all to take a deep breath! Based on the official synopsis below for this episode, the return of Captain Cold is going to prove to be much more than he bargained for:
“Leonard Snart AKA Captain Cold (guest star Wentworth Miller) returns to Central City with a new hotheaded partner in tow – Mick Rory AKA Heat Wave (guest star Dominic Purcell). The duo plan to steal a multi-million dollar painting, but Cold has another agenda while in town – to set a trap for The Flash. Snart and Mick kidnap someone close to The Flash and threaten to kill them unless The Flash shows up for a battle of fire and ice. Barry tells Joe (Jesse L. Martin) he isn’t sure he should take on Snart again after the casualties that happened the last time they fought. Meanwhile, Barry asks Dr. Wells (Tom Cavanagh), Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) and Cisco (Carlos Valdes) to help him double his training efforts so he’s ready for the Reverse Flash when he returns to Central City. Iris (Candice Patton) deals with the aftermath of Barry’s confession, and Cisco makes the CCPD a new shield.”
Based on some early previews, it appears as though this “someone else” is going to be none other than Caitlin, but who knows? Maybe this is some elaborate trick. We’ve learned by now to take everything we see on the show at face value. Heck, we’re still not entirely sure that Harrison is operating from a place of evil when it comes to whatever his plan is for Barry.
