'The Flash': Barry will face Reverse Flash-but who is he?!

Even before the debut of The Flash, diehard fans had a pretty good idea about the show’s future uber villain. During Barry Allen’s (Grant Gustin) initial introduction on Arrow last season, the forensic scientist shared the tale of witnessing his mother being murdered by a blurry figure, a clear nod to DC Comics villain Professor Zoom, otherwise known as the Reverse Flash.

What’s more, when the spin-off began filling out its cast, Rick Cosnett was tapped to play Eddie Thawne, seemingly a play on the name Eobard Thawne, the alter-ego of Professor Zoom. If the producers hadn’t quite hit the nail on the head, the upcoming Dec. 9 episode is titled “The Man in the Yellow Suit.” In other words, we’ll finally see the Reverse Flash in the flesh, not just as a blur from Barry’s memory or a flash of yellow light threatening Joe (Jesse L. Martin) to drop the case or suffer the consequences.

“We’re building towards a confrontation between Barry and the Reverse Flash,” executive producer Andrew Kreisberg tells EW.

'Arrow' producer says that Olicity date is not a 'fake-out'

When Arrow fans first met Oliver Queen in season one, he was Laurel’s ex-boyfriend. You know, the one who had cheated on her when he took her sister, Sara, on a boat trip, only to have the boat sink and Sara die. Or, at least, that’s what viewers thought.

By the end of the first season, Ollie is a changed man, and he and Laurel rekindle their flame—for a time. But by that point, another girl had caught the audience’s eye. Enter Felicity Smoak, the witty IT girl who nearly drooled every time Oliver walked into a room. Their relationship seemed so impossible that fans started rooting for it.

But as time went on, romance didn’t seem so impossible anymore. To recap: By the penultimate episode of the second season, Oliver and Felicity have exchanged loving glances, had loaded conversations, and even hugged, but it wasn’t until the season-two finale that fans got something bigger. When Slade kidnapps Laurel in the season-two finale, Oliver hides Felicity at the Queen mansion, where he tells her that Slade is after the woman he loves and that Slade had taken the wrong woman when he took Laurel. He then tells the awestruck Felicity that he loves her. READ FULL STORY

'Arrow' scoop: Oliver's 'new and fun dynamic' with Laurel (and 'threesome' with Dig and Felicity)

On the Arrow season 1 DVD, which is out today, there’s talk of what the show might do down the line with Laurel (Katie Cassidy) as Black Canary. See an exclusive clip from the extras below. But in the meantime, producers will begin the Black Canary mythology in the Oct. 9 season 2 premiere with Caity Lotz in the role. “She’s a new player in town, a vigilante who avenges wronged women and seems to have a fixation on the Arrow and our team is trying to figure out why,” exec producer Andrew Kreisberg says. (Because it’s a mystery that may take a few episodes to solve, we’d encourage you not to read that particular spoiler online. It’ll be more fun to play along.)

As for what awaits Laurel in season 2, which picks up five months after the earthquake that leveled the Glades: “Both Laurel and Oliver are dealing with the death of Tommy. Even though Tommy had broken up with her, she really feels like she betrayed Tommy by sleeping with Oliver — and certainly after Tommy died trying to save her,” Kreisberg says. “So Laurel’s energy this season early on is to try to make amends for that. Unfortunately for Oliver, that means she wants to catch the vigilante in her new job as the District Attorney. So as she and Oliver are trying to deal with their respective grief at having betrayed and lost Tommy, their hunting each other at night. It’s a new and fun dynamic for us to put them in.”
