DC Comics character Griffin Grey will square off against Team Flash in the April 26th episode, titled “Back to Normal,” and will be played by Haig Sutherland. Fans may remember Griffin Grey as the super-villain with super strength created by Danny Bilson and Paul DeMeo when they worked on the 1990 TV show The Flash: The Fastest Man Alive. The episode synopsis (courtesy of this article on Comicbook.com) reads:
A meta-human with super strength named Griffin Grey (guest star Haig Sutherland) mistakes Harry (Tom Cavanagh) for Earth-1 Harrison Wells and kidnaps him, demanding that Wells cure him from his current condition. Realizing another brilliant Wells could help track Griffin’s location, Barry asks Jesse (guest star Violett Beane) to help. Meanwhile, Wally (Keiynan Lonsdale) corners Joe (Jesse L. Martin) about The Flash.
Griffin Grey is coming to Central City and setting his sights on Harry. Like many meta-humans before him, Griffin will likely be desperate to get back to who he was before the particle accelerator turned him into something beyond human. And since Jesse will also be involved, I have to wonder how and who finds her. Barry, most likely, but maybe Harry figures out where she is before he gets kidnapped.
Oh, how the tables are about to turn in the Earth-1 Wells family! Harry saved Jesse, and now Jesse will have to save Harry. I’m eager to see how the show continues to explore their father-daughter dynamic. It’s possible Jesse will save her father and then leave again, but not before the two of them share a memorable and heartfelt talk.
Wally and Joe will also be having a meaningful talk, this time about The Flash (and Barry, by extension). Will this be the episode that Wally learns Barry’s secret? I hope so because that will take us one step closer to Wally becoming Kid Flash! But Grey will probably put a wrench in everyone’s plans.
