TV Guide has released a new still from the next of episode of CW’s The Flash giving us our first look at Kelly Frye’s Bette Sans Souci a.k.a. Plastique, albeit an unconcious Plastique. The character has been described as a former bomb squad disposal expert in Iraq who gained superpowrs after the S.T.A.R. Labs explosion. She possesses the abilitiy to turn any object she comes in contact with into an explosive. Speaking with TV Guide, EP Andrew Kreisberg described her character and relationship with Barry Allen: “On the run from the shadow forces in the U.S. government trying to turn her into a human weapon, she finds an ally in fellow meta-human: The Flash.”
Check out the new still below and even though it may not be the best first look ever, with the episode still almost two weeks away, it looks as though it will have to suffice for now.
KELLY FRYE GUEST STARS AS DC COMICS’ PLASTIQUE AND CLANCY BROWN GUEST STARS AS GENERAL EILING – After a bomb goes off downtown, the army, led by General Eiling (guest star Clancy Brown), rolls in and takes over the case, much to Joe’s (Jesse Martin) surprise. Suspicious, Joe tells Barry (Grant Gustin) that he and his friends at S.T.A.R. Labs should look into the army’s involvement. Wells (Tom Cavanagh) informs the team that Eiling was experimenting on his men to turn them into super soldiers. Cisco (Carlos Valdes) confirms one of Eiling’s soldiers, Bette Sans Souci (guest star Kelly Frye), was at the bomb site. The Flash tracks her down and realizes that she’s not setting off the bombs, she is a meta-human who can blow things up just by touching them. Meanwhile, when Joe learns Iris is writing about “the streak,” he tells Barry to make her stop. Barry realizes Iris won’t listen to him so he decides to have The Flash pay her a visit. Dermott Downs directed the episode written by Aaron Helbing & Todd Helbing & Brooke Eikmeier (#105).
