What will Simon Stagg be up to when he visits Central City on The Flash in two short weeks?
Nobody knows yet, but the first official photos of the longtime Metamorpho antagonist have surfaced online, along with 15 other stills from the series' second episode, titled "The Fastest Man Alive."
Of course, if you'll remember, Barry loses his powers for a bit in this episode...so that's a curious way to refer to him. Could they be hinting that there's somebody...else...who's pretty darn fast himself? Well, there's an awful lot of Eddie Thawne in these photos.
You can check out the gallery, along with the official synopsis for the episode, below.
The Flash debuts on Tuesday at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW. The following week, "The Fastest Man Alive" will air on Tuesday, October 14 at 8 p.m.
“Fastest Man Alive” – (8:00-9:00 p.m. ET) (TV-PG, LV) (HDTV)
BARRY HAS FUN WITH HIS NEW POWERS BUT A SETBACK MAKES HIM QUESTION HIS ABILITY TO BE A HERO —Barry (Grant Gustin) escorts Iris (Candice Patton) to a university gathering honoring scientist Simon Stagg (guest star William Sadler). When six gunmen storm the event, Barry changes into The Flash and tries to stop them. While he does save a man’s life, he passes out before he can capture the robbers, which frustrates him.
As Dr. Wells (Tom Cavanagh), Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) and Cisco (Carlos Valdes) scramble to find out what’s wrong with Barry, Joe (Jesse Martin) comes down hard on Barry for taking the law into his own hands and risking his life. Barry realizes that it wasn’t six gunmen but a metahuman named Danton Black (guest star Michael Christopher Smith), who can make multiples of himself. Meanwhile, Iris becomes even more intrigued by the “red streak.”
David Nutter directed the episode with story by Greg Berlanti & Andrew Kreisberg and teleplay by Andrew Kreisberg & Geoff Johns (101). Original airdate 10/14/2014.
