“The Flash” is heading to Earth-2 and The CW has released the first photos of that excellent adventure. The photos give you the first official looks at the liked of Caitlyn’s (Danielle Panabaker) Killer Frost alter ego, the return of Robbie Amell as Deathstorm and the Barry (Grant Gustin) and Iris (Candice Patton) pairing that many fans have been waiting rather impatiently for.
Everyone knew those were coming based on sneak peeks at the episode, though. The big surprise is that Earth-2 Joe West (Jesse L. Martin) looks like he’s a lounge singer.
There’s only one photo of Joe, but he’s definitely decked out in a suit, drink in hand, singing while Barry and Iris look on with smiles on their face. Given Martin’s background as a star of Broadway musicals, this is a delightful turn of events.
Season 1 saw Barry killing it at a karaoke bar, so why not take advantage of Martin’s talents as well? The only thing the show is missing now is a duet with the two.
What other surprises will Earth-1’s Barry and Cisco (Carlos Valdes) encounter during their jaunt to Earth-2? That much remains to be seen, but a trailer for the episode promises that Barry will meet his own doppelganger, which should be plenty bizarre. Plus Iris has a gun for some reason. Is she the cop of the family, since Joe’s a singer? Maybe she’s just packing heat as a backup plan.
“The Flash” airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
