Tonight we get the back-to-back return of The Flash and Legends of Tomorrow. But focusing on The Flash right now, we last left Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) after he saved his love Iris (Candice Patton) — but the Speed Force was upset and needed someone trapped inside. Savitar was there for a while, as was Wally (Keiynan Lonsdale) and Jay (John Wesley Shipp)… and it was Barry's turn and his responsibility. He left his friends behind and gave himself over.
Now it's six months later, and Team Flash has been trying to survive with just Wally, Iris, Joe (Jesse L. Martin) and Cisco (Carlos Valdes). Not on the team is Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker), who ended last season somewhere between herself and Killer Frost. Where has she been, and who has she been?
We see in the clip below that she's been working at a dive bar when Cisco tracks her down. She is Caitlin again, but won't say how she got back there or why she didn't return to the team. They are interrupted by a man with one milky-white eye that may be Norvok (Mark Sweatman).
Norvock is a character from the comics tied to Clifford DeVoe/the Thinker (Neil Sandilands), the big bad for the season. He is a mob boss who funds the Thinker in the early days when he switches from being a D.A. to helping criminals. Here he looks like he's involved with having 'cured' Caitlin.
The Flash Season 4 premieres tonight at 8 p.m. on the CW. (Video courtesy of TVline.)
