Grodd is coming. Of course we could go into the intricacies of Flash’s history (through a series of Flashbacks [lol. sigh splendid]) Or we could just show the CW trailer that has finally decided to go all Planet of the Apes on us, bring Flash’s greatest nemesis to life, a supreme intelligent, psionic gorilla with rather the oofish name of Grodd. We’ve seen the signs from the beginning. From the teaser poster to the ‘oh-by-the-way’ moments in episode 5 as a former test subject of General Wiling and the end of episode 12 where the primate goes apesh*t on some workers in the underground sewers as well as that LEGO buildup. See the trailer in the player below:
The Flash synopsis reads:
After a particle accelerator causes a freak storm, CSI Investigator Barry Allen is struck by lightning and falls into a coma. Months later he awakens with the power of super speed, granting him the ability to move through Central City like an unseen guardian angel. Though initially excited by his newfound powers, Barry is shocked to discover he is not the only “meta-human” who was created in the wake of the accelerator explosion – and not everyone is using their new powers for good. Barry partners with S.T.A.R. Labs and dedicates his life to protect the innocent. For now, only a few close friends and associates know that Barry is literally the fastest man alive, but it won’t be long before the world learns what Barry Allen has become…The Flash.
The Flash airs Tuesdays at 8pm ET on the CW.
