A new promo for next few episodes of The Flash gives us our first look at Danny Trejo's upcoming character in the CW offering, Breacher. Season 4 of the series will officially welcome the inter-dimensional bounty hunter who is also the father of Gypsy -- Cisco's current girlfriend. While we do not necessarily know how his trajectory will affect the overall narrative for the show's ongoing installment, we can expect that an interesting dynamic with his daughter's boyfriend will pose some fun sequences between the two.
The actor's casting was first announced back in July alongside a slew of other newcomers including Hartley Sawyer as the Scarlet Speedster's supposed new ally, Ralph Dibney with the alter-ego Elongated Man, Katee Sackhoff as Blacksmith who will be a recurring new threat and finally, Neil Sandilands who will take the role of this year's big bad, the genius Clifford DeVoe, also known as The Thinker.
In the newly rolled-out promo titled Therapy (which you can watch above) mainly saw Iris and Barry going through couple's therapy to hopefully help the two of them settle back into their old lives after everything that has transpired -- especially the latter's six-month stint in the Speed Force. But despite clocking at just a little bit over a minute, the spot was able to cram a flurry of new footages include our very first look at Breacher in a blink-and-you-miss-it fashion. In it, we see Gypsy's dad looking surprised and perplexed with both his hands raised as if he was caught doing something mischievous.
Aside from Breacher, we also got to see snippets of both Elongated Man and The Thinker (who was looking all sorts of cool wearing his infamous Thinking Cap paraphernalia). Although similar to the bounty hunter, the preview is too short to really get a good look at the new characters and come-up with some theories as to what they are up to.
The promo is a collective teaser for all the upcoming episodes of The Flash, presumably rolling out during the first half of the season so it is difficult to know when we would see the full cut of the scenes used in the trailer. In the meantime, we can all look forward to a rather lighthearted episode next week after all the heavy stuff brought about seeing the return of delusional Barry in season 4's primer. The upcoming installment titled "Mixed Signal" will see Team Flash operating as usual, especially with the arrival of villain Ramsey Deacon (Dominic Burgess), a metahuman who can control technology. However, Cisco's upgraded suit for his friend suddenly becomes a nuisance instead of helpful as it starts to malfunction in the middle of the mission.
The Flash season 4 airs Tuesday nights at 8pm on The CW.
