According to EW, Arrow star Emily Bett Rickards is likewise showing up in this episode as Felicity Smoak. The on-screen character is the fifth Battlestar Galactica alum to join the Arrowverse, following in the strides of Aaron Douglas, James Callis, Tahmoh Penikett, and Rekha Sharma. Some of Sackhoff’s different past credits incorporate 24 and Riddick.
You can read the abstract for The Flash season four underneath.
Running up against an evil time remnant version of yourself is something no one should ever have to do, but that’s exactly what faced Barry Allen (aka The Flash) as he fought to save the life of fiancée Iris West from the God of Speed known as Savitar. Barry’s victory was short-lived, however, as an unbalanced Speed Force began to wreak havoc on Central City, forcing Barry to sacrifice himself for the greater good. With The Fastest Man Alive now trapped inside an extra-dimensional energy, and unknown dangers lurking in the shadows, it will be up to Team Flash to free Barry from his own personal Hell.
The Flash season four premieres on Tuesday, October 10 at 8/7c on The CW.
