Flash Season 4: Inside The Episode 'The Elongated Journey Into Night'

Tonight we have a much-anticipated episode of The Flash where two new characters are introduced. Both of them were announced during the summer, but since some folks avoid spoiler news, I'll wait to talk about them until after the photo below, where you will also find an look inside the new episode with executive producer Todd Helbing.

Tonight's episode, 'The Elongated Journey Into Night', introduces us to a long time Flash supporting character from the comics Ralph Dibny, AKA the Elongated Man, played by Hartley Sawyer. We also get to meet Breacher, Gypsy's father played by Danny Trejo.

The video opens by showing us that Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) has taken down all of the photos from his mother's murder that he used to have in his office in the police station. This is symbolic of how he's moved on from his past tragedies this season. He's replaced it with images of the new metas, including Kilg%re and Hazard, and that leads us to another new meta: Dibny, a former crooked cop with a past connection with Barry and a new power that he needs Team Flash's help to control.

And Breacher has come because he doesn't like guys dating his daughter. He hunts them. And when Cisco (Carlos Valdes) asks where the last guy she dated was, Breacher says he doesn't know, because he doesn't know where people go when they die. No wonder she was single.

The Flash airs tonight at 8 p.m. ET on the CW.
