This week on The CW’s The Flash, the latest adversary was a real gas, flashbacks revealed how Caitlin’s fiance was felled on a stormy night, The Old Flash “met” the new one and we learned a shocking truth about how Barry landed on the fast track.
Whereas last week I took issue with the kiddie-centric flashbacks, this time around I couldn’t get enough of the particle accelerator backstory. In fact, it almost had me wishing the series had picked up with events a day or two prior, though I suspect the sum total of flashbacks still to »
On “The Flash,” Grant Gustin’s titular hero isn’t the only character with special abilities, and in the Oct. 21 episode, we’ll meet another DC Comics icon: Robbie Amell’s Ronnie Raymond, aka one half of Firestorm — DC’s “Nuclear Man.” In the series, Ronnie is an engineer on Star Labs’ particle accelerator, the device that imbues Barry, Ronnie and many other bystanders with unforeseen powers after it malfunctions. He’s also the fiance of Caitlin Snow (Danielle Panabaker), and this week’s episode will flash back (no pun intended) to the night when the accelerator exploded, supposedly killing Ronnie even as it gifted Barry with super speed.
Amell is no stranger to super powers — having headlined Greg Berlanti, Phil Klemmer and Julie Plec’s “Tomorrow People” for The CW last season — and it’s safe to say that heroics are in his genes, given that his cousin is “Arrow” star Stephen Amell. »

Viewers were introduced to Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) during Season 2 of The CW’s hit drama series Arrow, in a way that made the character both likeable and intriguing, and it was easy to see why he immediately got his own TV show. With The Flash having made its debut to huge ratings, Barry is now getting his own backstory and mythology and villains to fight, while also playing into the bigger DC universe and, at times, characters will cross back and forth between the two shows. In Episode 3, “Things You Can’t Outrun,” viewers will revisit the painful night the particle accelerator exploded and killed Caitlin Snow’s (Danielle Panabaker) fiancé, Ronnie Raymond (Robbie Amell), who also becomes one half of Firestorm, in future episodes. During this exclusive phone interview with Collider, actor Robbie Amell talked about how he was offered the role, how excited his mom is that he booked the show, »

The Flash is about to heat up. Robbie Amell makes his grand debut in tonight's episode of the CW's hit Arrow spinoff show as half of one of DC Comics' most powerful superheroes: Ronnie Raymond, aka Firestorm. And yes, we do mean half. The other half is Dr. Martin Stein—who will be played by Victor Garber—and the two polar opposite men find themselves fused together after the particle accelerator explosion...the same one that left Barry Allen with a set of speedy legs. But when we meet Ronnie for the first time in tonight's episode, "Things You Can't Outrun," he won't be the Firestorm fans know and love. "You don't meet Firestorm yet. You're just going »
Fans of The Flash will get their first look at Ronnie Raymond (Robbie Amell) in tomorrow night's episode "Things You Can't Outrun". The character is one half of Firestorm, with Dr. Martin Stein (Victor Garber) portraying the other half. Before fans are introduced to Ronnie, Robbie Amell offers the first details about his character in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter.
Firestorm isn't as big a name in the DC comic book universe. Amell reveals that he wasn't too familiar with the character before he landed the role.
"I knew of him and I knew a little, but I hadn't been a huge Firestorm fan. But I'm actually kind of glad that it happened that way because I got to be introduced to a new superhero. I got a care package from DC with a couple comics and a couple action figures. My mom went out to a comic book »
The Flash is headed to the past — well, the very recent past. The CW's Arrow spinoff is about to introduce former S.T.A.R. Labs mechanic Ronnie Raymond in Tuesday's episode, who — as a result of the same particle accelerator explosion that turned Barry Allen into The Flash — becomes half of the powerful dual identity Firestorm (the other half is played by Victor Garber). With Ronnie's fiancee and S.T.A.R. Labs employee Caitlin Snow (Danielle Panabaker) coming to terms with the possibility that her true love may have perished in the accident, things in

Life is sweet to Victor Garber. The famous actor who starred in Alias just cannot shake his crime fighting roles. He has been confirmed to have a guest role for an upcoming November 21st episode of Blue Bloods. His role will be New York real estate legend named Donald Stein who finds himself concerned over the deaths of his people, Jewish men. Donald will be concerned by how he feels the cops are not doing enough to protect his people. This news comes at heels of his upcoming role on CW’s The Flash. No word on if his Blue Bloods role will be a reoccurring role or not.
Congratulations is in order for Victor. I have always enjoyed his big ego characters, as well as his acting chops as a whole. He plays the role of being a jerk very well. We cannot wait to see what kind of »

Victor Garber is a man in demand, folks.

The Performer | Grant Gustin
The Show | The Flash
The Episode | “Pilot“
The Airdate | October 7, 2014
The Performance | He may not have leapt a tall building in a single bound, but Gustin’s performance in the pilot episode of The CW’s The Flash was pretty darn close to super-powered.
Despite having the hefty weight of a DC Comics legacy on his back, Gustin made it look effortless as his geeky crime-scene investigator Barry Allen transformed into the fastest man alive after a snafu involving a lightning bolt (generated by S.T.A. »
The CW's "The Flash" is adding some more villains to its ranks.
Andy Mientus ("Smash," "Chasing Life") has joined the cast as Hartley Rathaway, a former Star Labs tech who later becomes the sonic weapon-slinging villain The Pied Piper. In both the comics and the show the character is openly gay. Mientus will appear in the show's eleventh and twelfth episodes.
Next, "Alias" regular Victor Garber is slated to play the DC Comics character and arrogant nuclear physicist Dr. Martin Stein in the series. The character discovers the particle accelerator accident fused him with the impulsive Ronnie Raymond (Robbie Amell) and he races to find a way to separate the two. Together they become 'Firestorm'.
Meanwhile its progenitor "Arrow" returned to The CW on Wednesday night to solid ratings with 2.8 million viewers and a 1.0 in Live+Same Day results. The third season premiere jumped 2% in total viewers and 11% in the »

If you’re up-to-date with The Flash, you’ll know that we can expect plenty of super-powered guest stars for a long time to come.
Thanks to the particle accelerator acting as a Smallville/Misfits-esque superpower distributor, there’ll be no shortage of unique abilities over the course of the show.
Today we’ve learnt about two more new additions to the show's roster – Pied Piper and Firestorm.
The former will be played by Chasing Life actor Andy Mientus, in this season’s 11th and 12th episodes. Following the explosion, jilted scientist Hartley Rathaway lost his hearing, but began utilising sonic weapons under the guise of the Pied Piper to get revenge against his rival Dr Harrison Wells. We’re assuming there will be a supernatural element to this incarnation too, but we could be wrong.

Back in July, The Tomorrow People actor Robbie Amell joined the cast of The Flash as Ronnie Raymond, who becomes the DC Comics superhero Firestorm. Fans know though that Amell’s character only serves as one half of the famous Nuclear Man. The other half is arrogant nuclear physicist Dr. Martin Stein, who serves as the disembodied voice within Ronnie’s head when the two become fused together after a freak accident.
Now, Variety has provided the answer to the other half of the Firestorm equation, and reports that Emmy Award-winning Alias and The Good Wife alum Victor Garber has been cast in a “major recurring role” as Dr. Martin Stein, who is described as follows:
“As one half of the Firestorm entity in the DC Comics universe, Martin Stein is described as a brilliant but arrogant nuclear physicist who has sacrificed everything, including a marriage, for his work in transmutation. »

The Flash is a hit and has an exciting season ahead. The CW has released banner art that shows The Flash (Grant Gustin) speeding away from an explosion. They have also released photos for the third episode ahead of the airing of the second. I'm guessing they really don't want ratings to drop on the second one.
Official synopsis for episode threem titled "Things You Can't Outrun," airing October 21st — via Coming Soon:
The Flash Battles The Mist, Caitlin Tells Barry About Ronnie -- As Barry (Grant Gustin) and the team at S.T.A.R. Labs work to capture Kyle Nimbus (guest star Anthony Carrigan), a.k.a. The Mist, a dangerous new meta-human with toxic gas powers, they revisit the painful night the particle accelerator exploded and killed Caitlin's (Danielle Panabaker) fiancé, Ronnie (guest star Robbie Amell). Meanwhile, Joe (Jesse Martin) decides to finally visit Henry (John Wesley Shipp »

We first reported on The Pied Piper's involvement in the show last month, who is one of the original members of the Rogues. That supervillain group is formed by Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller), who will be introduced in the show's fourth episode, "Going Rogue" on October 28.
