I'm assuming the footage in this trailer is from what was shot when it was intended to be episode 20 of season 6.

Maybe the shutdown will get the writers to tighten up their storylines and work in smaller chunks, giving more flexibility to pivot if the season gets cut short again. Season 5 was bad about having more episodes than story, and even though they tried to tighten up in season 6 by having two half-season arcs, there was still a bit of running in place going on.

Still, the trailer got me excited for the eventual return.

They showed it at the DCFanDome Flash panel yesterday. They said about 85% of episode 20 had been shot and that is where most of that footage comes from.

There was a question to the cast and creators about whether having the two half-seasons for Season 6 was a good idea. They were uniform in liking that for most of the logical reasons. So, it would seem they will continue with at least two chunks in Season 7.

That’s really too bad. She was terrific and I really enjoyed her on the show.

Season 7 Premiere Tuesday February 23


TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 23

8-9 p.m. THE FLASH (Season 7 premiere)


Disappointed its not starting in January. I guess this means fewer episodes or less reruns.

Since The Flash won't start until March 2 what are the chances that CW will just air 13 or 14 episodes this season but film 18 episodes with 4 or 5 episodes saved for the fall so that next season can start in October. Seems like Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow, and Stargirl will all be summer series this season. Since they are doing a final season of 20 episodes of Supergirl, I think at this point it would be best just to hold it until the fall instead of running it over the summer. The CW has a lot of local sports programing during the summer.

More than most, this show suffered from the truncated previous season. It was a decent premiere tonight, with a big swing on the Wells front and with regard to Barry's powers, but it's frustrating that Iris is still stuck in the mirror universe and Eva is still the big bad.

Yes, this was definitely an episode from last season. It had the feel of one that should be episode 20 or so. I am hoping that they don't drag out those plotlines longer than originally planned for then.

I would really like to know which scenes were added to replace the scenes with Hartley Sawyer that were filmed for this episode last year. I would also like to see the Hartley Sawyer scenes cut. I am sure the cut scenes will never be shown as a blu ray extra. They will not show any previously unseen Hartley Sawyer scenes. They cut his scenes from the blooper reel on the Season 6 blu ray.

Guessing that Wells will show up in the speedforce or in someone's dreams going forward.

It's entirely plausible that they didn't have any Ralph scenes in the original version of the episode. Ralph had just run off with Sue, and the show regularly has cast members sit out of episodes.

I believe Eric Wallace stated in interviews that about 20% of the premiere episode had to be reshot mostly to replace cut Ralph footage. Tonight's episode was rewritten to include Killer Frost who was not scheduled to return for the 3 episodes of season 6 that were postponed due to Covid 19. Next week would have been the Season 6 finale so you would assume Ralph would have been in it. I am guessing and I have read that others have guessed too, that "Ralph" will disguise himself as Harrison Wells when he is written out of the series.

My big issue with the speed thinking is that all of the speedsters had previously been shown to have a version of that; while it didn't make them any smarter, their perception of time is very different than non-speedsters. The major example that comes to mind was the fourth season episode where a nuke has just gone off in Central City and the entire episode takes place in the second immediately after the chain reaction has been initiated. Barry and Jesse spend a lengthy about of time trying to figure out a solution in a span of time that is infinitesimal to everybody else.

Awesome ending to this week's episode. Never thought that person would return.
I figured something was coming when the actor in question was still listed as a series regular in the credits. It's an interesting way to give us yet another new Harrison Wells: The original Harrison Wells that Eobard Thawne killed and took the place of.

Spock Flash tonight. Read Grant Gustin interview on TVline.
I was thinking him more as Brainiac than Spock, but it fit.

As far as the ending I was thinking the only Wells we were going to get was Zoom. Getting the "original" back is a complete surprise.
