At the start of the year during the Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour, it was announced by CW President Mark Pedowitz that the nerdy filmmaker Kevin Smith would be directing an episode of The Flash this season as he is a huge fan of the show himself. All that we have known about his episode for the past few months is that it would be episode 21 which will air on Tuesday, May 10, as we begin to conclude Season 2.
The CW released the official description for Smith’s episode which is titled “The Runaway Dinosaur” which was written by Zack Stentz (X-Men: First Class, Thor). We will also see Smith’s longtime friend Jason Mewes, best known as Jay from the Clerks films, Jay and Silent Bob Strikes Back and Mallrats. It will also feature the return of another familiar face from Season 1. You can check out the full description below, but be aware of some possible spoilers!
“KEVIN SMITH DIRECTS – With Barry (Grant Gustin) gone, the team must figure out a way to handle the return of an old enemy – Girder (guest star Greg Finley). Realizing Girder is retracing his steps from his last attack, Iris (Candice Patton) volunteers to act as bait to trap him in S.T.A.R. Labs. Meanwhile, Barry fights to return to his old life. Kevin Smith directed the episode written by Zack Stentz (FL221). Original airdate 5/10/2016.”
