Earlier today, The CW announced that The Flash episode "The Death of the Speed Force" and the DC's Legends of Tomorrow episode "Mr. Parker's Cul de Sac" would be delayed, with re-runs set to air in their place on March 3. No formal reason was given at the time, but the most likely explanation seems to be that they are trying to avoid competing with "Super Tuesday" news coverage, which will go a long way toward determining what Democrat will run against Republican incumbent Donald Trump for the U.S. Presidency later this year. Those delayed episodes, the network confirmed tonight, will intead air one week later on March 10.
In "Death of the Speed Force," Wally West (Keiynan Lonsdale) returns to Central City. In "Mr. Parker's Cul-De-Sac," fans will finally get to see what it is that Ray Palmer is doing in all those ads where he is dressed like Mister Rogers.
You can check out the official synopses for the episode below.
