The Flash Super Trailer: Grodd's Arrival, Oliver's New Look and More Surprises

Some very famous faces are coming to Central City in the next few weeks — and one of them happens to be a psychic gorilla.

Following Tuesday’s revealing episode of The Flash, The CW aired a minute-long trailer teasing the final episodes of Season 1 (which ends Tuesday, May 19). And yes, the elusive Grodd does show his glorious mug.

But that’s not the only bananas surprise from the new trailer. Additional moments to get pumped about include:

* An incredible interaction between Cisco and Arrow‘s Laurel, which ends with him confessing his love for her. (No shocker there.)
* Detective West and Captain Lance teaming up for an investigation.
* The arrival of Ray Palmer (ahem, the Atom) in his super-suit.
* Oliver dressed as… the new Ra’s al Ghul?

Hit PLAY on the trailer above, then drop a comment below: What are you most excited to see as The Flash‘s freshman season comes to a close?

    I noticed Arrow’s Al Ghul’s new hood as well. Meh.

    • Wordsmith says:

      Yeah, that looks an awful lot like a League of Assassins uniform that Oliver is sporting in those quick shots…

    • Alichat says:

      Also, it looked like Lance and Joe found the real Harrison Wells’ body, yes? Oh….and Ray seriously needs to learn how to land in that suit.

    • Will says:

      I’m gonna throw this out there right now!

      That outfit Oliver is wearing is a ‘Dark Arrow’ outfit. Barry will go back and save his mother…resulting in a ‘Flashpoint’ type universe in the season finale.

      They’ve already shown how history can change on a small choice. I’m telling you they’ll do Flashpoint for like half next season. You’ll see Cisco be Vibe…Kaitlin will be Killer Frost…Wells will be a good guy (cause Thawne didn’t come back)…and Barry won’t have his speed right away.

      Just my thought.

      • Will says:

        OH and that’s why the ‘all-stars’ show will exist. Cold will be Citizen Cold etc.

        • Will says:

          And if it does happen…I don’t see how they WOULDN’T cross that over to Arrow. Have Arrow’s universe be different. It’d let them play with Felicity and Oliver together…Sarah would be alive again…maybe make Laurel actually able to DO something…

  2. Mason says:

    Wow…. That was quite impressive, too excited

  3. Chris says:

    Since Robbie Amell isn’t going to be in the Flash/Arrow spinoff, will his character get killed off on The Flash?

    • Wordsmith says:

      They already have the other half of Firestorm on the spinoff, so maybe the character just swaps bodies for a while and lets Robbie’s half of the duo take a back seat?

  4. Dj says:

    I saw the Arrow Ra’s outfit a few days ago and it was supposed to be from the season finial of the Flash. Firestorm was in the same picture.

  5. Drew says:

    I have to admit, I really hate the Atom suit… I hate everything about how the character has been portrayed on the show. It is like Iron Man and RoboCop had a love child and I’m not sure why they’re calling him The Atom since he isn’t like the comic book character. Why not go with Blue Beetle or Booster Gold?
    But other than that, the preview looks really cool.

  6. Shannon says:

    Could that be Cisco’s ‘Vibe’ glasses from the comics at 0:30?

  7. Robert says:

    Maybe I missed something,but if Thawne got stuck in the past,what happened to the future Flash he was fighting?Was he stuck too and if so where is he?

    • Gail says:

      We haven’t seen the scene from Barry’s point of view yet, so we don’t know what happened to him when he went back to save his mother. Maybe he succeeds but then young Barry dies instead and Barry fades from existence. That would be a good Season 1 cliffhanger.

    • Gerald says:

      Eobard lost his juice when he time travelled and got stuck. The Flash (Barry) I assume didn’t loose his juice and he then time traveled back to his own time. (Which is still in our present day future.)

  8. Gail says:

    Looks like Cisco is about to get killed again when Welles says “Hello Cisco” What will happen this time?

  9. BP says:

    The alternate look has to do with the fact they MUST be doing the “Flashpoint” story.

  10. Joey Padron says:

    preview for new episodes looks good! glad some more Arrow characters will be on the show. I guess Oliver will take Ra’s offer to join the league from looks of his new costume.

  11. Gail says:

    Interesting that “Welles” told Barry that he must do everything he did before when he went back in time in order not to change the time line but that “Welles” changed the time line when he moved up the development of the particle accelerator from 2020 to 2015.

    • Matt Webb Mitovich says:

      Except that “Wells” (just one e) told Barry that long after he had meticulously set in motion his plan to get “home.” He just wants to make sure Barry doesn’t now go and screw it up by stepping on a butterfly.

    • sporting4231 says:

      Yes, but it may be the fallout from that change that is causing Wells/Thawne to warn Barry not to change the past. After all, 2025 is when the crisis happened (that Barry averted) according to the newspaper. If Barry hadn’t averted the crisis, Wells wouldn’t have a future to return to. Thawne’s actions killing and absorbing the real Wells also left him with emotions that he apparently wasn’t used to having (like for Wells dead wife.) So Wells/Thawne may be helping Barry in order to prevent the end of the world as triggered by Wells/Thawne changing time.

  12. Gail says:

    Isn’t it getting a little ridiculous that everyone knows Barry is the Flash except Iris? Even Eddie knows now and Captain Cold. They keep saying its to protect her but from whom?

    • sporting4231 says:

      I didn’t understand why it was necessary to reveal him to Eddie either. It seems like they could have gotten his cooperation without the reveal.

    • Luke says:

      and if you think it’s ridiculous just imagine how Iris will feel when she invitably finds out; the list of people that know is crazy long (including villans not just friends), because telling Iris will put her in danger but not Eddie and the fact that Cold knows is no problem because for a criminal he is soo trust worthy; it’s becoming increasingly obvious that Iris will have a fallout with Barry and dad when she finds the truth and franklly I can’t really blame her the lack of trust they have in her is kind of insulting;

  13. Maddy says:

    Based on the temporary look, I think Oliver is going rogue until he can find his imposter on Arrow

  14. Doozie says:

    All looked awesome until, urgh, Palmer showed up. Can’t stand that guy. Can’t wait till he’s spun off, hopefully permanently, and they can find him a less irritating personality while transitioning to his new show.

    • sporting4231 says:

      I agree, the less Palmer and Felicity the better.

      • BeckyBoo says:

        Oh, I love Felicity – or at least I did, until they made her unrecognisable this season in her weird-placeholder least-interesting-love-triangle-of-all-time relationship with Palmer. Fingers crossed she gets her old spark back once he’s off the scene.
