After a reveal earlier this month that Robbie Amell will return to the CW's "Flash" series once more as Ronnie Raymond, we now know a little bit more about the circumstances of the character's return. This was a surprising development as Amell's character has already died on the show -- twice.
Entertainment Weekly caught up with Amell, who had just finished shooting his upcoming appearance on "The Flash." “I was there last week,” said Amell. “I can tell you that my scenes are with Grant [Gustin] and Danielle [Panabaker]. And I may or may not be alive.”
Amell was part of the original combination of characters that created the superhero Firestorm. The original Firestorm appeared throughout season one of "The Flash" before Ronnie Raymond sacrificed himself to stop a singularity from Earth-2 from destroying Earth. Later in season three, Amell returned to the show to pay Ronnie Raymond's evil Earth-2 counterpart Deathstorm. The villainous version of the character was killed after one episode.
While we now know that Amell shares scenes with Grant Gustin and Danielle Panabaker, we still don't know exactly who he's playing. These could be flashback scenes or a dream sequence. This could even be a Ronnie Raymond from one of the many other Earths that have been introduced in the series.
Amell also spoke about a sharing a scene with Grant Gustin, something that's totally new for him as an actor as he's surprisingly not done a scene with the Flash until this point. “I love Danielle, she’s so sweet,” he said. “I went to dinner with Victor Garber. It’s always great to work with all of them. I rarely get to have scenes with Grant. The only time he and I had a scene that was just the two of us, I was Stein at the time, I was pretending to be Victor Garber. So it was cool to have a real scene with Grant.”
"Flash's" fourth third season continues on the CW this week with an episode titled "Dead or Alive."
