Tom Felton’s CCPD CSI is finally “unmasked” in the fresh batch of photos from The CW’s The Flash.
In Season 3’s second episode, titled “Paradox” and airing Oct. 11, Barry realizes the effects from Flashpoint are much greater than he thought. On top of that, he meets co-worker Julian Albert (played by Felton) and is surprised by the new forensics wizard’s immediate disdain for him.
“We went two seasons with Barry in this CSI lab in CCPD with no one really with him,” executive producer Todd Helbing tells TVLine. “He was able to go investigate metahumans and crimes and take that information back to S.T.A.R. Labs, but he can’t do that anymore because he’s not top dog in CSI. He’s got Julian, who is like his boss that he has to answer to. It’s like, ‘How am I supposed to get around this when all I need is this little thing and I could probably solve the case, but I can’t get to it anymore?'”
But more importantly, is there more to Julian than meets the eye? “You’ll see what happens to his character,” the EP hedges. “Right now, he is the biggest threat in the CSI world.”
Also on display in the Episode 2 photos: an intense moment between Barry and Joe (perhaps stemming from what happens at the end of Tuesday’s season opener…?), plus John Wesley Shipp suited up as that other Flash, Jay Garrick.
