The episode will introduce two new characters at the same time. The first one is Danny Trejo as Gypsy’s father and the second one is Hartley Sawyer as Ralph Dibny AKA Elongated Man. Recently, Tom has been doing double duty for the episode 4 as Harry Wells and as a director. When EW asked him about Ralph’s character, he reply from Harry’s point of view,

“Personally, having Hartley play such a massive part in the episode and basically how Hartley played was how the episode was going to play essentially. So I’m overjoyed at having Hartley Sawyer on board, but Harry Wells can’t stand him. He couldn’t stand HR Wells, some smooth-talking idiot. Now there’s another handsome boy coming in here prancing around and Harry doesn’t cut into chains that well.”

So according to Cavanagh, he has filled the episode with full touches of humor like never seen before by introducing these two guest stars.

“Cisco is shocked when Gypsy’s father, Breacher (Danny Trejo), shows up on Earth-1. Breacher takes an immediate disliking to Cisco and decides to hunt him. Meanwhile, Barry runs into an old nemesis, Ralph Dibny.”

The Flash airs Tuesday at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
