The hallowed halls of the TCA press tour nearly caught fire this afternoon with the assembled casts of ‘Arrow’ and ‘The Flash’ onstage, both reveling in their recent renewals.

It’s a fine day to air on The CW, as the network’s TCA press tour panel brings some seriously good news.

In honor of the Fall finale of ‘The Flash,’ I thought I’d steal a page from fellow ScreenCrush writer Mike Ryan and ask twenty questions about tonight’s episode, “The Man In The Yellow Suit.” Did the reveal of The Reverse-Flash make any sense?
