While The Flash may be on a mini-hiatus, that will finally be over as of this upcoming Tuesday when it returns for episode 18. The CW has released the official description for the 20th episode which will air on May 3 titled “Rupture” and this is a huge deal for DC Comics fans, in particular fans of Cisco Ramon. This will also mark as the directorial debut for the special effects supervisor Armen V. Kevorkian. You can check out the description below, but beware of some possibly big spoilers.
“DC COMICS’ CHARACTER RUPTURE COMES TO CENTRAL CITY WITH ZOOM – Zoom (guest star Teddy Sears) arrives back on Earth-1 intent on taking over Central City. Barry (Grant Gustin) and Wells (Tom Cavanagh) come up with a plan to stop Zoom once and for all but it’s extremely dangerous. Unsure if he should take the risk, Barry reaches out to both fathers for advice. Henry (guest star John Wesley Shipp) is adamantly opposed to Barry risking his life again but Joe (Jesse L. Martin) thinks he can handle it which puts the two men at odds with each other. Meanwhile, Cisco (Carlos Valdes) is shocked when he vibes the Earth-2 villain Rupture, who happens to be his brother Dante’s (guest star Nicholas Gonzalez) doppelganger. Rupture came to this Earth seeking justice for Reverb’s death. Iris (Candice Patton) decides she’s finally ready to open up to Barry about her feelings for him. Armen V. Kevorkian directed the episode written by Kai Yu Wu & Lauren Certo (#220). Original airdate 5/3/2016.”
The Flash returns next Tuesday, April 17th with episode 18 titled “Versus Zoom” at 8/7c on The CW.
