The Flash Mid-Season Finale to Run an Extra Two Minutes

There’s only one more 2014 episode left of The CW’s new hit DC Comics series, “The Flash.” Titled “The Man in the Yellow Suit,” the mid-season finale will air Tuesday, December 9 at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT. You may have to adjust your DVR, however, as The CW has just announced that the episode will run long, extending nearly two extra minutes.

On the heels of this week’s impressive crossover episode, “Flash vs. Arrow,” (read our recap right here), “The Man in the Yellow Suit” teases the identity reveal of Reverse Flash with the following official description:

Barry (Grant Gustin) finds himself face-to-face with his nemesis, the man in the yellow suit, a.k.a. Reverse Flash, who killed his mother. Barry is frustrated when the Reverse Flash escapes, but Dr. Wells (Tom Cavanagh) and Cisco (Carlos Valdes) come up with a plan to trap him. All they need is bait, so they turn to Dr. Tina McGee (guest star Amanda Pays) from Mercury Labs to help.

Meanwhile, it’s Christmas at The West household and Iris (Candice Patton) is in full holiday cheer. Eddie (Rick Cosnett) gives her a surprising gift but also leaves her with a question that could change her life. Joe (Jesse L. Martin) joins the search for the man in yellow and ends up in the crossfire. Plus, Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) finds Ronnie (Robbie Amell).

“The Man in the Yellow Suit” is directed by Ralph Hemecker and written by Todd Helbing and Aaron Helbing.
