The second season of "The Flash" is nearly here, and The CW has released the official synopsis of the season premiere -- highlighting Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) feeling guilt for Eddie's death, leading him to try and protect the city on his own -- which appears to be a poor decision once new-to-the-series villain Atom Smashed (Adam Copeland, better known as former WWE Champion Edge) gets involved.
BARRY DECIDES HE NEEDS TO PROTECT THE CITY ON HIS OWN - Picking up months after the Singularity attacked Central City, Barry (Grant Gustin) is still struggling to forgive himself for Eddie's death. Concerned about putting his friends in danger, Barry has pushed everyone away and has chosen to protect the city on his own. When a meta-human named Atom Smasher (guest star Adam Copeland) attacks the city, Iris (Candice Patton) tells Barry that he needs to let his friends help him protect the citizens of Central City. Meanwhile, Cisco (Carlos Valdes) helps Joe (Jesse L. Martin) with his Meta Task Force. Ralph Hemecker directed the episode with story by Greg Berlanti & Andrew Kreisberg and teleplay by Andrew Kreisberg & Gabrielle Stanton (#201).
"The Flash" returns to The CW on Tuesday, Oct. 6.
