The CW Network is giving fans a proper introduction to S.T.A.R. Labs founder Harrison Wells (Tom Cavanagh) in a new featurette for The Flash. Tom Cavanagh himself explains that Wells is on the verge of a breakthrough, before the particle accelerator explosion happens, which gave Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) his powers. The accident left Wells in a wheelchair, as he realizes that Barry may hold the key to new advancements that could change the world.

In addition, the network has debuted nine new photos from the pilot episode, airing Tuesday, October 7 at 8 PM ET on The CW. Check out these images below, which feature Grant Gustin, Candice Patton, Danielle Panabaker and Tom Cavanagh.

After a particle accelerator causes a freak storm, CSI Investigator Barry Allen is struck by lightning and falls into a coma. Months later he awakens with the power of super speed, granting him the ability to move through Central City like an unseen guardian angel. Though initially excited by his newfound powers, Barry is shocked to discover he is not the only "meta-human" who was created in the wake of the accelerator explosion - and not everyone is using their new powers for good. Barry partners with S.T.A.R. Labs and dedicates his life to protect the innocent. For now, only a few close friends and associates know that Barry is literally the fastest man alive, but it won't be long before the world learns what Barry Allen has become...The Flash.
