After revealing Zoom’s identity last night, The CW debuted this promo for the next Flash episode. Although it’s not airing until March 22, the “Trajectory” episode will introduce us to the title speedster played by “Days of Our Lives” star Allison Paige.
In the comics, Trajectory only lasted as a character for five weeks. She made her debut in issue #17 of the post-“Infinite Crisis” weekly series, “52,” and died in issue #21. Emerging from Lex Luthor’s Everyman Project (a program designed to give ordinary human beings super powers), Eliza Harmon found herself granted the power of super speed. Unfortunately for Harmon, she was unable to move at regular speed without access to a special drug.
Episode 2.16 features the following official description: “Having arrived in town intent on creating maximum chaos, Trajectory’s antics are misinterpreted as having been perpetrated by the Flash himself. Barry thus must quickly! uncover the mystery of who is the girl under the mask — as well as what is driving her mad desire for speed and destruction.”
The Flash stars Grant Gustin as Barry Allen/The Flash, Candice Patton as Iris West, Rick Cosnett as Eddie Thawne, Danielle Panabaker as Caitlin Snow, Carlos Valdes as Cisco Ramon and Jesse L. Martin as Detective Joe West. The new season saw the addition of newcomers Teddy Sears as Jay Garrick, Keiynan Lonsdale as Wally West, Shantel VanSanten as Patty Spivot, Violett Beane as Jesse Quick, Demore Barnes as Tokamak, and Candyman himself Tony Todd as the voice of the new “big bad,” Zoom.
