Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) breaks free from a hot date to save a proverbial "little old lady" in a new trailer for The Flash midseason premiere, "Revenge of the Rogues", airing Tuesday, January 20 at 8 PM ET on The CW. The trailer gives us another look at the Rogues themselves, Leonard Snart AKA Captain Cold (guest star Wentworth Miller) and his new hotheaded partner Mick Rory, AKA Heat Wave (guest star Dominic Purcell), along with other villains such as Harley Rathaway (Andy Mientus), a.k.a. The Pied Piper, Peek-A-Boo (Britne Oldford) and Reverse Flash (Tom Cavanagh).
The duo plan to steal a multi-million dollar painting, but Cold has another agenda while in town - to set a trap for The Flash (Grant Gustin). Snart and Mick kidnap someone close to The Flash and threaten to kill them unless The Flash shows up for a battle of fire and ice. Barry tells Joe (Jesse L. Martin) he isn't sure he should take on Snart again after the casualties that happened the last time they fought. Meanwhile, Barry asks Dr. Wells (Tom Cavanagh), Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) and Cisco (Carlos Valdes) to help himdouble his training efforts so he's ready for the Reverse Flash when he returns to Central City. Iris (Candice Patton) deals with the aftermath of Barry's confession, and Cisco makes the CCPD a new shield.
