The fifth season of The Flash premieres tonight on The CW, but a photo from next week's episode provides the best look yet at primary antagonist Cicada.

Portrayed by American Pie star Chris Klein, an official still from the season's second episode shows the new villain masked and hooded as he stands ominously on the rooftops of Central City.
