'The Flash' Season 6 Episode 15 Preview: Another Barry vs Thawne scrimmage sets the tone for a new villain
It all started with Eobard Thawne's Reverse-Flash as the primary antagonist in 'The Flash' Season 1 and as Season 6 nears an end, the charismatic, evil speedster is back. His entrance in 'Death of the Speed Force' was something close to a horror film as he managed to get himself inside Harrison Nash Wells (Tom Cavanagh).
The post 'Crisis' episodes of 'The Flash' are a lot different as it not just sees the Scarlet Speedster, Barry Allen (Grant Gustin), deal with the aftermath of the multiverse-shattering battle, but also sees his foes go through some major changes.
Trouble brewed for the speedsters in the form of the Speed Force being obliterated rendering them powerless.
And that's not all as the members of Team Flash have their own storylines that are yet to be resolved. The Mirror Iris (Candice Patton) plot is sure to take up a few more episodes before the identity of the new Mirror Master (Efrat Dor as Eva McCulloch) is exposed.
Carlos Valdes (Cisco Ramon) is yet to find out about Kamilla Hwang's (Victoria Park) dire fate, while for Barry, it's about creating an artificial Speed Force.
The idea comes after Barry realizes the Reverse-Flash used the Negative Speed Force, an energy source that served as the exact opposite of Barry's Speed Force. For now, the plan is to replicate Thawne's method.
Moving on to the upcoming episode, 'The Exorcism of Nash Wells', The CW has released the official synopsis for the episode after the title being borrowed from the 2005 horror drama, 'The Exorcism of Emily Rose'. While we can guarantee there wouldn't be gore horror, there's a rather different version of it in the form of Thawne's return.
The synopsis reads: "A DANGEROUS NEW META HITS CENTRAL CITY – The Flash (Grant Gustin) takes on a dangerous new meta named Sunshine (guest star Natalie Sharp). Cisco (Carlos Valdes) sets out to help Nash (Tom Cavanagh). Eric Dean Seaton directed the episode written by Lauren Barnett and Sterling Gates."
While there will be a new Meta, it is safe to assume the Thawne and Mirror Iris storyline will get a bit more of an explanation. You can watch the promo clip here:
