The Flash has been a great success for The CW. The series premiere drew the highest ratings the network has seen in 5 years and some argued that this show is better than both Smallville and The Arrow. Only a month ago, The CW ordered a full 23-episode season for the show and it seems the writers are starting to flex the additional time they’ve been given.
According to Access Hollywood, Peyton List (The Tomorrow People, Mad Men) will play Lisa Snart, the sister of Leonard Snart AKA Captain Cold who is a returning character seen in the first half of the season.
Lisa Snart is expected to join up with her brother’s Rogues, as she did in the comics. Originally Snart was a famous figure skater who became the supervillain Golden Glider when The Flash killed her lover, Roscoe Dillon AKA The Top. As Golden Glider, she joined the Rogues to destroy The Flash.
We haven’t yet met The Top yet, so it’s unclear what Lisa Snart’s backstory and motivations will be, but we’re excited to find out!
Given the show’s great success, we imagine the writers will expand the Rogues and include villains like The Pied Piper and The Trickster. Plus, the next episode is titled “Revenge of the Rogues.” The show has been impressive so far and we can’t wait to see what they do in the future.
The Flash returns on January 20th, 2015, with Peyton List joining the cast as List Snart in the 16th episode.
