The Flash will be sitting out Valentine’s Day not just for all its coupled viewers, but presumably the task of extended Grodd VFX in its two-part “Attack on Gorilla City” arc. As such, the extended trailer for next week’s return brings with it just a hair more Gorilla, and a dash of Indiana Jones.

Arrow sleuths were quick to figure out after Laurel’s Season 4 death that Katie Cassidy hadn’t necessarily sought out a next gig, potentially keeping an Arrow-verse return in play. Cassidy even supposedly signed the same “franchise regular” contract as a few Legends, though producers now explain what’s holding up another appearance.

We’re still at least a month out from The Flash and Supergirl teaming up for a musical “Duet,” but things are definitely seeming different in Central City.

Well, they had to come back from Gorilla City eventually, right?

You’d think The Flash had enough on his plate, between Savitar’s deadly prophecies and musical warm-ups ahead, but we’ve got a two-episode pit-stop in Gorilla City in the meantime. See the first trailer for Grodd’s return, as The Flash prepares for an “Attack on Gorilla City” to come.
