The Flash dropped some intense spoilers on its future (and past) with tonight’s “Tricksters,” but The CW drama has far more secrets in store for the remainder of its first season. The latest trailer surprisingly reveals some major Arrow Season 3 plot points, as well as enough new and returning DC stars to unravel the space-time continuum itself!
OK, well now that’s a lot more like it. The 2015 run of The Flash hasn’t been that strong, with an inability to plot over the long term and a semi-disastrous redo of the timeline last week hurting the overall quality of the program. But “Tricksters” does what the show does best: Dole out a fun villain of the week and incrementally move the overall season along without really giving away the farm. That seems like an odd thing to say given the flashbacks in tonight’s episode, but in reality, this episode told us far less than it initially appears.

On Community, there’s the concept of the darkest timeline. Well, I think we just saw the lamest timeline on The Flash.
The Flash already traveled to the past in advance of Tuesday’s “Rogue Time,” but March 31 installment “Tricksters” will head all the way back to 1990. Mark Hamill himself reprises his role as the Scarlet Speedster’s trickiest foe, even facing off against original Flash John Wesley Shipp in first photos from the upcoming “Tricksters!”

Through the first fifty minutes of tonight’s installment of The Flash, I was thinking it was a middling-to-OK episode of television. Way too much love quadrangle baloney, way too much Joe trying to go alone even though he should know better, way too much of the show starting the slow burn of Cisco figuring out Wells’ true end game. And then the last ten minutes happened and everything changed.
Despite a few recent clarifications from Arrow and Flash producers, we still have no idea what to expect from the forthcoming Atom-centric team-up spinoff. The latest casting doesn’t tip the scale either way, though Wentworth Miller’s Captain Cold will be relieved to have some company, as Prison Break brother Dominic Purcell joins the spinoff in his Heat Wave guise.
We still don’t know what to make of Arrow and The Flash’s untitled teamup spinoff, featuring Brandon Routh’s Atom, a returning Caity Lotz and many more, but producers aren’t shy about teasing new details.
