‘The Flash’ season 2 premiere reaction: Show boss mum on Robbie Amell’s future

Firestorm -Tonight, it is fair to say that “The Flash” unleashed plenty of fire and fury with its season 2 premiere; you even saw some of that in the first few minutes with the death of a major character. (Spoilers ahead.)

Ronnie Raymond died in the episode after making a sacrifice to save Central City from the Singularity, a sweeping force that spread across the city like a vortex. The guilt that Barry felt over his death is something that caused him to doubt his ability to work with anyone for a full six months after the events unfolded, and it took Iris and Joe talking some sense into him before realizing that he needed to start to move forward.

Has Robbie Amell moved forward beyond this show? It’s a fair question, given his uncertain status at present; however, there is no definitive word just yet on what his future will be. Executive producer Andrew Kreisberg was asked this question by Variety in a postmortem, and he responded with a far-ranging answer that touched on some of the show’s themes, and not so much whether or not specifically we will see him again in the future:

“Getting to see who’s over there and who’s not, and getting to see some of our actors getting to portray different versions of their characters, that’s really the fun of when you look at the great sci-fi shows like “Star Trek” and “Doctor Who,” when they go into the mirror world. Not everybody will have a sharp Van Dyke to signify that they’re evil. [Laughs.] But that has been part of the fun of the show. Unfortunately our imaginations are far grander than the pile of money we have, because we would be going the whole hog on some of these things, but so far it’s been really great, we’ve had a lot of fun exploiting the idea.”
