The midseason finale for The Flash, titled "The Man in the Yellow Suit," was already scheduled to run 90 seconds beyond its normal time slot, ending at 9:01:30 instead of at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
Today, the network announced that it will in fact run until 9:01:45, adding another 15 seconds for a total of one minute, 45 seconds of extra The Flash.
Of course, one might ask just how much can actually happen in that amount of time...but the answer is that nearly every post-credits sequence in a Marvel movie has been that much time or so. And the last forty-five seconds or so of the series pilot for The Flash had its own bombshells.
You can see the episode synopsis below.
