Captain Cold may be dead, but since when has that been enough to keep a good villain down?
Leonard Snart (Wentworth Miller) returns to Central City to plague his scarlet-hued nemesis, the Flash (Grant Gustin), in late-October, and he's bringing trouble with him.
New meta human Mirror Master (Grey Damon) initially ingratiates himself to Barry, but once the Top (Ashley Rickards) arrives, it's revealed that the new pair of faces are more interested in targeting Cold than being heroes. And when Jesse Quick (Violett Beane) uses her newly-obtained speedster powers to get involved in the unfolding chaos, things are going to accelerate from bad to worse.
WENTWORTH MILLER RETURNS AS CAPTAIN COLD; MIRROR MASTER AND THE TOP BATTLE WITH THE FLASH — Barry (Grant Gustin) continues to train Jesse (guest star Violett Beane) and when a new meta human, Mirror Master (guest star Grey Damon), appears on the scene he lets her tag along. Mirror Master has teamed up with his old partner, Top (guest star Ashley Rickards), and is looking for Snart (Wentworth Miller) to even a score. Jesse is quick to join the chase but defies one of Barry’s orders which results in disastrous consequences. Stefan Pleszczynski directed the episode written by Benjamin Raab & Deric A. Hughes (#304).
"The New Rogues" arrive October 26, 2016.
Miller's character underwent a hero's journey through the first season of "DC's Legends of Tomorrow," a transformation that ultimately led to his demise while saving no less than the entire universe. Immediately after his character's death aired, however, it was announced that Miller had signed a deal to play Captain Cold across all of The CW's DC Comics based series during the 2016-17 season.
It was subsequently revealed that Miller's Cold will be a member of the Legion of Doom, joining villains from "Arrow" and "Legends of Tomorrow" on the supervillain team.
“For season two of ‘Legends,’ we decided that the perfect antagonist for TV’s first-ever team of super heroes would be TV’s first-ever team of super-villains, recruited from the ranks of Arrow and The Flash’s deadliest adversaries,” Executive Producer Marc Guggenheim explained of the decision to bring the Arrowverse's bad guys together. “Being huge fans of the ‘Challenge of the Super Friends,’ we’ve come to call this group our ‘Legion of Doom.'”
While it's not yet explained how Cold is alive, nor why he's once more a bad guy, the prevailing theory is that he's been snatched from a point in the time stream prior to his adventures on "Legends."
Starring Grant Gustin as the Scarlet Speedster, "The Flash" airs Tuesdays at 8 pm ET/PT on The CW. The series also stars Jesse L. Martin, Tom Cavanagh, Carlos Valdes, Candice Patton, Danielle Panabaker, Keiynan Lonsdale and more.
