Even though we’ve known for weeks now that Mark Hamill is appearing on “The Flash,” we are for some reason just as impressed about it now as ever. Maybe it’s because we know just how important he is to the history of science fiction, and even the CBS version of this show.
Ultimately, you are going to be seeing him on the show during the March 31 episode fittingly titled “The Tricksters,” which will feature both him and a new generation of the character. This will put Barry Allen in a very tricky position, especially when his father somehow gets mixed up in all of this. We have to give the writers some credit for continuing to find interesting things for Henry to do while behind bars. That ultimately cannot be that easy. The entire synopsis, which was released by The CW this week, can be checked out below:
“A copycat killer who goes by the name “The Trickster” (guest star Devon Graye) starts setting off bombs in Central City. In order to stop the villain, Barry (Grant Gustin) and Joe (Jesse L. Martin) meet with the original Trickster, a criminal mastermind named James Jesse (guest star Mark Hamill), who has been imprisoned for 20 years. Things quickly go from bad to worse when the Tricksters unite and take Henry (John Wesley Shipp) prisoner. Meanwhile, Iris (Candice Patton) asks Eddie (Rick Cosnett) for help with a case, and flashbacks show how Harrison Wells (Tom Cavanagh) came up with the idea for the particle accelerator.”
Hooray for Dr. Wells flashbacks! Cavanagh is one of the best parts of this show, so we’ll always petition to have as much from him on the series as possible.
