The Flash Episode 100 Preview Teases a Trip To the Past

Spoiler Warning: Make sure you’ve seen last night’s episode of The Flash before reading this post!

Barry Allen and his friends finally know that Cicada is Orlin Dwyer, a dangerous man with a vendetta against metahumans. Unfortunately, there’s no way for them to directly confront Cicada without his dagger draining away their powers. However, Team Flash will come up with a plan in the penultimate installment of 2018. For the 100th episode, Barry and Nora are set to go back in time to get everything they need to beat Cicada.

It’s too bad that Barry has a track record of screwing up his own timeline in the past. As you can see in the trailer below, several of the previous big bads are going to get in Barry’s way. Savitar, Zoom and Eobard Thawne / Reverse-Flash are all prominently featured in the footage. But there may be a few deadly surprises as well.

Meanwhile, Sherloque (Tom Cavanagh) takes his concerns about Nora to Iris (Candice Patton), and Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) turns up a key asset in the fight against Cicada.”
