The CW has released the first clip from next week's episode of The Flash, titled "Plastique."
In the clip, a fire endangers a window washer...and the only way Barry can think of to save the man is by running at him -- up the side of the building. It's a cool visual and the first use of one of Barry's more iconic powers that's undercut only slightly by the fact that ever since they wrapped production on this episode, the shot has been used in a number of trailers and promos.
You can check it out, along with the official synopsis, below.
“Plastique” — (8:00-9:00 p.m. ET) (Content Rating TBD) (HDTV)
KELLY FRYE GUEST STARS AS DC COMICS’ PLASTIQUE AND CLANCY BROWN GUEST STARS AS GENERAL EILING — After a bomb goes off downtown, the army, led by General Eiling (guest star Clancy Brown), rolls in and takes over the case, much to Joe’s (Jesse Martin) surprise. Suspicious, Joe tells Barry (Grant Gustin) that he and his friends at S.T.A.R. Labs should look into the army’s involvement. Wells (Tom Cavanagh) informs the team that Eiling was experimenting on his men to turn them into super soldiers. Cisco (Carlos Valdes) confirms one of Eiling’s soldiers, Bette Sans Souci (guest star Kelly Frye), was at the bomb site. The Flash tracks her down and realizes that she’s not setting off the bombs, she is a meta-human who can blow things up just by touching them. Meanwhile, when Joe learns Iris is writing about “the streak,” he tells Barry to make her stop. Barry realizes Iris won’t listen to him so he decides to have The Flash pay her a visit. Dermott Downs directed the episode written by Aaron Helbing & Todd Helbing & Brooke Eikmeier (#105). Original airdate 11/11/2014.
