In the past, a guest appearance by Wentworth Miller’s Captain Cold wouldn’t have seemed out of the ordinary, but you have to admit that it’s now a pretty big deal. The reason for this, of course, is that Leonard Snart is technically dead.
Yes, he did appear in the final episodes of season 2 of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, but let’s not forget that he was plucked from earlier in the timeline by the Legion of Doom, with the Waverider crew returning him to that point and wiping his short-term memory in the finale.
Check out the official synopsis below:
THE COUNTDOWN BEGINS; WENTWORTH MILLER RETURNS AS CAPTAIN COLD – With only 24 hours left until Savitar murders Iris (Candice Patton), Barry (Grant Gustin) struggles to save the woman he loves and makes the choice to use any means necessary to do so. Realizing he has one option left to save her, The Flash turns to Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller) for help.
Michael Allowitz directed the episode with story by Andrew Kreisberg and teleplay by Grainne Godfree .
