The first official images featuring the return of a few familiar faces and the introduction of Wally West on The Flash have been released.
The 19 new pics are from the Season 2 episode “Running to Stand Still” (that's Episode 9), featuring the return of Mark Hamill (soon to be seen as Luke Skywalker again in Star Wars: The Force Awakens on Dec. 18) in the role of James Jesse, aka the Trickster. Also back for an encore are Liam McIntyre (Spartacus) as villain Mark Mardon, aka Weather Wizard, and future Legends of Tomorrow star and fan favorite Wentworth Miller in the role of Leonard Snart, aka Captain Cold.
The pics show the Rogues assembling (never a good thing) after the Weather Wizard breaks the Trickster and Captain Cold out of prison. Of course, future speedster Wally West (Keiynan Lonsdale) chooses that time to make his long-awated debut on the superhero show -- right on time for Christmas.
Here is the official episode synopsis:
MARK HAMILL, WENTWORTH MILLER AND LIAM MCINTYRE RETURN; KEIYNAN LONSDALE JOINS THE CAST AS WALLY WEST — When Mark Mardon AKA The Weather Wizard (guest star Liam McIntyre) returns to break Leonard Snart AKA Captain Cold (guest star Wentworth Miller) and James Jesse AKA The Trickster (guest star Mark Hamill) out of Iron Heights, Barry (Grant Gustin) must stop these rogues from taking over Central City during Christmas. Meanwhile, Joe (Jesse L. Martin) and Iris (Candice Patton) meet Wally West (Keiynan Lonsdale). Kevin Tancharoen directed the episode written by Andrew Kreisberg.
