The Flash episode 5.08 promo: What’s Past is Prologue
In the promo for next week’s episode of The Flash, the titular hero is told that he has to travel back into the past in order to defeat Cicada in the future. This jaunt through time will have The Scarlet Speedster facing off against some of his most notorious villains — and that’s before things will get “a lot more complicated.” You can check out the teaser in the post below!
The Flash stars Grant Gustin as Barry Allen/The Flash, Candice Patton as Iris West, Danielle Panabaker as Caitlin Snow, Carlos Valdes as Cisco Ramo, Hartley Sawyer as Ralph Dibny, Jessica Parker Kennedy as Nora West-Allen aka the speedster hero XS, Danielle Nicolet as Cecile Horton with Tom Cavanagh as Dr. Harrison Wells, and Jesse L. Martin as Detective Joe West. Chris Klein (Election, Oz, American Pie) has joined the cast to play the new scourge of Central City, Cicada. A grizzled, blue-collar everyman whose family has been torn apart by metahumans, Cicada now seeks to exterminate the epidemic — one metahuman at a time.
