THE FLASH: Season Four - As if meeting your girlfriend’s father for the first time isn’t stressful enough!
From DC Comics
The appropriately fast-paced peek at The Flash’s upcoming fourth season gave us a…well, peek at the return of Britne Oldford’s Peek-a-Boo, a strong-but-grieving Iris West and a once again heroic Caitlin Snow. (Though actress Danielle Panabaker promised that fans of both Caitlin Snow and Killer Frost will be pleased this season.)
However, the trailer didn’t include next season’s central villain, Clifford Devoe, better known to DC fans as the Thinker. Played by The 100’s Neil Sandilands, Devoe is a metahuman with a mega mind who embarks on a season-long battle with the Scarlet Speedster that pits the “fastest man alive” against the “fastest mind alive.” A true genius, he’s devised an intricate plan to fix all that he deems wrong with humanity.

To help with this, it turns out the Thinker has a partner-in-crime—a character known only as the Mechanic and played by Kim Engelbrecht (Dominion). The Mechanic is a highly intelligent engineer who designs devices for Devoe. As Devoe’s right hand, she’s the truest of true believers who’ll stop at nothing to help him implement his plan to fix humanity.
Finally, and perhaps most surprising, was the announcement than none other than Danny Trejo—yes, of Machete, From Dusk Till Dawn and Sons of Anarchy fame—will be playing the new role of Breacher, a feared bounty hunter from Earth-19 and the imposing father to inter-dimensional bounty hunter, Gypsy. His mission is to prevent any inter-dimensional traveler from threatening life on his planet—especially his daughter’s.
Poor Cisco. As if meeting your girlfriend’s father for the first time isn’t stressful enough!
