CW has released a preview of “Pay the Piper”, the next episode of the sixth season of “The Flash” that will air on May 5. The episode will see the return of Hartley Rathaway / Pied Piper (Andy Meintus), a character first introduced as a villain in the show’s first season, but Pied Piper is not the only blast from the past.
Godspeed will return, too, although this is the first time Team Flash has dealt with the speedy speedy since the events of “Crisis on Infinite Earths,” meaning that anything is possible, given that event dramatically changed reality.
In preview, Barry is willing to risk his rapidly decreasing speed to stop Godspeed, something that can have a catastrophic impact not only on Barry himself but on how the Flash Team can handle the rest.
Among the challenges they face this season is the Black Hole. Even if Barry spends the last of his speed against Godspeed, he will eventually regain that speed.
It will be just a journey to get there, though it’s one fans could first see on Tuesday night’s “Liberation” with a first effort at creating the artificial speed force.
