One of the recurring mysteries on The Flash is what happened to Caitlin’s fiancé Ronnie Raymond during the particle accelerator explosion.The early episodes indicated that Ronnie perished during the accident, but the ending of “Flash vs. Arrow” revealed to viewers that Ronnie is still alive and has extraordinary flame abilities…and is homeless. Although he helped Flash out of a jam, he’s not quite himself, and the mystery has deepened further with the revelation that Ronnie was involved with a man named Martin Stein and a mysterious project known as F.I.R.E.S.T.O.R.M.

Next week’s episode “The Nuclear Man” brings this saga to a head when Flash comes face-to-face with Firestorm. While there are other things that will occur in this episode - such as Joe enlisting Cisco to assist him in the Nora Allen investigation and Barry’s continuing relationship with Linda Park - the main plot with Firestorm, Barry and S.T.A.R. Labs is definitely going to be the main draw. Here are the three big reasons fans should get hyped for Firestorm’s return on The Flash.

3. We'll Meet The Other Half Of Firestorm
It may be Ronnie Raymond’s body that’s setting itself on fire and flying away, but he isn’t the only person that makes up Firestorm. As in the comics, Dr. Martin Stein (Victor Garber) is the other half of Firestorm in The Flash, and while we’ve briefly seen him in video footage and heard him mentioned several times, next week will be our formal introduction.

In “Crazy For You,” Hartley Rathaway showed Cisco that Martin was at S.T.A.R. Labs the night of the particle accelerator explosion, carrying an unusual glowing object. When the explosion occurred, Ronnie, whose body was vaporized in the core, somehow fused with Martin, and Martin’s body was engulfed in an orange energy. Barry and the team will try to find Martin to figure out how to find Ronnie, and they’ll certainly be surprised to learn that Ronnie and Martin are currently stuck together!
