Next week’s new episode of “The Flash” is entitled “The New Rogues,” and there is a perfectly good reason for that. Not only is Wentworth Miller poised to appear for the first time this season as Leonard Snart, but we’re also getting a chance to see two other notable villains from the world of The Flash in Mirror Master (“Friday Night Lights” alum Grey Damon) and The Top (“Awkward” actress Ashley Rickards).
In the photos within this article, you can see these two newcomers in action for the first time. We like the look of each one of them, given that they’ve always been some of the more lighthearted villains in the comic lore, and it’s nice to see that reflected. Given that you have characters here powered by mirror travel and spinning, that does make a little bit of sense. We have a feeling that “Awkward” fans may not even recognize Rickards right away thanks to her new, blonde look.
We’ve also got a photo below of Jesse Quick (Violett Beane) in costume for the first time, and we certainly think that it does suit the character. The one complaint we’ll give is that the costume does look almost like a re-purposed version of the Trajectory costume from last season with the Flash logo stuck on it.
In general, we expect this episode to be very chaotic. How could you expect anything less given that Barry Allen could be tasked with taking out not only a returning villain, but also two new ones while training a new speedster at the same time? He may have more help than before, but that doesn’t necessarily mean he’s in better shape.
