THE FLASH

A synopsis for the fourth episode, titled “Going Rogue,” has arrived — and it includes a crossover cameo from one of “Arrow’s” mainstays.

The Flash (Grant Gustin) stops a robbery but the culprits get away after shooting a guard, and The Flash chooses to save the man instead of following the criminals. Joe (Jesse L. Martin) shows Barry a book of suspects and Barry identifies Leonard Snart (guest star Wentworth Miller, “Prison Break”) as the leader of the group. While investigating the case, Barry gets a surprise visit from an old friend – Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards, “Arrow”), who heard about his new abilities and came to check them out for herself. She joins him at S.T.A.R. Labs to help stop Snart after it’s revealed that Snart his gotten his hands on a stolen “cold gun,” which could kill The Flash. Dr. Wells (Tom Cavanagh) is furious when he finds out that Cisco (Carlos Valdes) built the cold gun without telling anyone and now it’s missing. Meanwhile, Iris (Candice Patton) is getting the silent treatment from Joe because of her relationship with Eddie (Rick Cosnett). Finally, The Flash and Captain Cold have an epic confrontation. Glen Winter directed the episode written by Goff Johns & Kai Yu Wu (#104).

The CW has also released a clip for the upcoming second episode, “Fastest Man Alive,” which sees Barry’s confidence shaken by the arrival of Danton Black.

Cable network Animal Planet has entered into the comic book adaptation business with the announcement that they’ve optioned IDW’s “The Other Dead.” The 2013 zombie comic created by Joshua Ortega and Digger Mesch takes place in a world filled with natural disasters and vicious undead animals.

THE WALKING DEAD

The AMC zombie drama returned last night and brought along a familiar face in a surprising post-credits scene. Entertainment Weekly talked to showrunner Scott M. Gimple about the decision to add that secret scene — and spoilers lurk ahead.

“That was about storytelling rhythms,” said Gimple. “That was about, yes, having a surprise for the audience. It also was about sequestering this story of this episode, ‘No Sanctuary,’ into its own contiguous piece. And that bit with Morgan is another story. It’s another thing. He’s walking off the railroad tracks, going into the forest, following something. It seems like the start of something. It just felt good that way. And I asked AMC, ‘Hey can we do that?’ They were like, ‘Hey, that sounds great.’ And that was enough for me.”

ComingSoon.net has posted the promo for next week’s episode, titled “Strangers.”

Now that the season premiere is out of the way, Deadline has learned that the show’s midseason premiere will air on February 8th.

WYTCHES
