Since the start of The CW’s The Flash, the biggest question is this: Who is the man in the yellow suit? Who killed Barry Allen’s mother? We will find out more in the December 9th episode, “The Man in the Yellow Suit.”
Previously we only knew the appearance of the man in the yellow suit who was confirmed to be Reverse-Flash but now we have a better look at the character and his upcoming episode in the trailer below.
In the comics, Reverse-Flash is simply the name taken by several of The Flash’s supervillains, including Professor Zoom AKA Eobard Thawne. Since we know time travel is an element in the series, many fans speculated if our very own police detective Eddie Thawn will turn out to be Professor Zoom from the future.
The official synopsis of the episode tells us more about what to expect:
In “The Man in the Yellow Suit,” Barry (Grant Gustin) finds himself face-to-face with his nemesis, the man in the yellow suit, a.k.a. Reverse Flash, who killed his mother. Barry is frustrated when the Reverse Flash escapes, but Dr. Wells (Tom Cavanagh) and Cisco (Carlos Valdes) come up with a plan to trap him. All they need is bait, so they turn to Dr. Tina McGee (guest star Amanda Pays) from Mercury Labs to help. Meanwhile, it’s Christmas at The West household and Iris (Candice Patton) is in full holiday cheer. Eddie (Rick Cosnett) gives her a surprising gift but also leaves her with a question that could change her life. Joe (Jesse L. Martin) joins the search for the man in yellow and ends up in the crossfire. Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) finds Ronnie (Robbie Amell).
The trailer primarily focuses on Barry’s hunt for the Reverse-Flash but we all know that there’s a lot to expect in next week’s episode. At the end of this week’s The Flash vs. Arrow cross-over episode, we saw what happened to Ronnie.
We still have so many unanswered questions. Is Eddie’s question to Iris a proposal? Should we prepare ourselves for tears over Joe West, a character who’s become an integral and beloved part of the series? What are you looking forward to most? Share your speculation and excitement in the comments below!
“The Man in the Yellow Suit” airs on The CW on Tuesday, December 9th at 8PM.
