Flash fans had a pretty feels-intensive mid-season finale, and the show’s now trademark post-credits sting has left us all screaming at our televisions, “THAT’S how the end it???” Thanks to an episode description from the CW, we now know what is in store for us when the show returns on January 20 with the episode “Revenge of the Rogues”.
If you’re not caught up on The Flash, read no further! There will be spoilers ahead!
The mid-season finale brought us a few big moments. Eddie and Iris are moving in together, Barry confessed his love to Iris--and Iris didn’t really reciprocate--, Caitlin’s fiancee, Ronnie, is alive and a metahuman, and most of all, we learned that the creepiest doctor around, Dr. Harrison Wells, is actually Reverse Flash. So will Iris and Eddie break up? Will Barry and Iris finally live happily together? What the heck is going on with Ronnie? And what in the world is up with Dr. Wells/Reverse Flash?
We might get the answers to all of those questions in the mid-season premiere, the CW’s description has given us a few clues on what to expect. So here’s what we know so far.
Captain Cold is back, and he’s got a toasty partner.
Leonard Snart AKA Captain Cold (guest star Wentworth Miller) returns to Central City with a new hotheaded partner in tow – Mick Rory AKA Heat Wave (guest star Dominic Purcell).
We knew that we’d be seeing more of Captain Cold/Leonard Snart when Barry let him go a few episodes back. However this time, the Captain has got a sidekick, Mick Rory or “Heat Wave”. So even though Captain Cold proved to be a formidable enemy to Barry, it seems that he’ll have an extra fight on his hands as he battles fire and ice. We’re going to have some epic fights on our hands, guys. Of course, the addition to Heat Wave is also pretty awesome for an entirely different reason. Captain Cold is played by Wentworth Miller, best known for his role in Prison Break, and Dominic Purcell also starred in the hit show. So Prison Break fans will get to see Lincoln Burrows and Michael Scofield together again.
