The Flash 100th episode is going to be coming up on The CW on December 4, and this one is going to be a major blast from the past. We know already that Zoom, the season 2 Big Bad, is going to be returning in some capacity (even if Teddy Sears isn’t playing him). Meanwhile, we also feel like there are going to be some other blasts from the past, as well … ones that may not be altogether welcome. This is an episode that is going to be bringing you surprises, homages, and hopefully a lot of fun along the way.

One of the things that we most appreciate about the 100th episode of The Flash is simply that it is not a part of the crossover. That’s one of the things that we really didn’t care for when it comes to the 100th episode of Arrow –why did it have to be wedged in there with a bunch of other stuff? We like that this episode is going to be special and completely on its own. Also, it’s the midseason finale for the show itself; while the Elseworlds crossover is coming after it, it may not be tied in any way to some of the story that is playing out.
Below, CarterMatt offers up the 100th episode synopsis with some other news when it comes to what’s ahead:
TOM CAVANAGH DIRECTS THE 100TH EPISODE — In the 100th episode, Barry (Grant Gustin) and Team Flash come up with a plan to stop Cicada (Chris Klein). However, the plan calls for Barry and Nora (Jessica Parker Kennedy) to travel back in time to gather some key necessities. However, Barry hesitates, concerned about his daughter seeing certain parts of his life. Meanwhile, Sherloque (Tom Cavanagh) takes his concerns about Nora to Iris (Candice Patton), and Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) turns up a key asset in the fight against Cicada. Tom Cavanagh directed the episode written by Todd Helbing & Lauren Certo (#508).
It would be fun to get a ton of cameos from actors who are no longer on the show, and to have many of them be a surprise. We just wonder if that is wishful thinking given that many of the series’ former cast members are off doing other things right now. (We would do almost anything to get Tom Felton back on the show, even if it was for just one more episode — he was a bright light in a difficult season.)
