The CW has released the synopsis for 9th episode of The Flash. It is titled, “The Man in the Yellow Suit“, which you can probably guess means the Reverse Flash. This will be the first time Barry comes face to face with his biggest arch-nemesis. Yes technically he did as a kid, but did you get a good look at him? Joe West also had a brief encounter with “the man in the yellow suit” in this past week’s episode.
Images from the filming of this episode surfaced back in October that showed us our first look at Reverse Flash. So who is the man under the mask? Is it Det. Eddie Thawne? A future relative of Thawne? Or is it Dr. Wells? We shall be finding out soon enough. The episode “The Man in the Yellow Suit” will premiere on December 9th at 8pm ET/7pm CT, which is also the midseason finale date for The Flash.
BARRY COMES FACE-TO-FACE WITH THE MAN IN THE YELLOW SUIT/AMANDA PAYS RETURNS TO THE FLASH — 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). Ralph Hemecker directed the episode written by Todd Helbing & Aaron Helbing (#109). Original airdate 12/9/2014.
