As many of you know, it is less than three weeks away from the debut of season two of the CW’s The Flash. The red-hot series had a great freshman season and will soon show fans if it could keep that momentum going after the three month hiatus. On Thursday, the CW released the synopsis of the season premiere slated for October 6th.
The episode will guest-star WWE Hall of Famer Adam “Edge” Copeland as Atom-Smasher, which we got a early preview of this week in their trailer for the upcoming season. The episode will be directed by Ralph Hemecker and will roll out the big concepts for the coming season.
Check out the synopsis below:
“The Man Who Saved Central City” — (8:00-9:00 p.m. ET) (TV-PG, V) (HDTV)
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).
