It’s never easy to meet the parents, but The Flash's Cisco Ramon (Carlos Valdes) is just trying to survive the encounter in a new promo clip for the upcoming “Elongated Journey into Night” episode that debuts tonight on The CW. In the clip, Cisco meets with Breacher, played by Danny Trejo, for the first time. Breacher is the father of Gypsy, an interdimensional Collector from Earth-19 who also happens to be Cisco’s girlfriend.
Breacher wastes no time getting down to business. He’s first glimpsed holding Cisco aloft by his shirt collar before Gypsy walks in on the awkward situation. Breacher is an Earth-19 bounty hunter, and his profession seems to inform the way he treats Cisco. Breacher tells Cisco he’s going to “hunt” him, like he did with Gypsy’s last boyfriend – who died. Not exactly the most productive meet and greet.
Created by Sterling Gates, Pete Woods and Fabiano Neves, Breacher first appeared in Justice League of America’s Vibe #3. Breacher's real name is Quell Mordeth. In the comics, he is known for coming to Earth to try and warn the planet about Darkseid’s approach, but was largely ignored. He was captured by ARGUS but later escaped. Both Cisco and Breacher can harness the same vibe energies in the comics, though in different ways.
Debuting tonight at 8 p.m. on The CW, “Elongated Journey into Night” is the fourth episode of The Flash’s fourth season that stars Grant Gustin, Candice Patton, Danielle Panabaker, Carlos Valdes, Keiynan Lonsdale, Neil Sandilands, Tom Cavanagh, Jesse L. Martin and Danny Trejo.
