Reverb’s brother comes to Earth-1 for vengeance in next week’s episode of The Flash

As we saw at the conclusion of last week’s episode, Dr. Wells now has a plan to restore Barry’s powers, but we also saw Zoom vowing to conquer Earth-1. In next week’s episode of The Flash, “Rupture,” we’ll see both plans come to fruition, with Zoom bringing along Reverb’s brother, Rupture — the Earth-2 doppelganger of Cisco’s brother Dante.

The CW has released a gallery of new photos (above) featuring a pensive Barry Allen and an attack on the Central City police department. There’s even one good look at Rupture himself.

In addition to the new images from the episode, The CW also released this new poster for “Rupture” (courtesy of

Here’s the official synopsis for “Rupture,” written by Kai Yu Wu & Lauren Certo and directed by Armen V. Kevorkian:

Zoom (guest star Teddy Sears) arrives back on Earth-1 intent on taking over Central City. Barry (Grant Gustin) and Wells (Tom Cavanagh) come up with a plan to stop Zoom once and for all but it’s extremely dangerous. Unsure if he should take the risk, Barry reaches out to both fathers for advice. Henry (guest star John Wesley Shipp) is adamantly opposed to Barry risking his life again but Joe (Jesse L. Martin) thinks he can handle it which puts the two men at odds with each other. Meanwhile, Cisco (Carlos Valdes) is shocked when he vibes the Earth-2 villain Rupture, who happens to be his brother Dante’s (guest star Nicholas Gonzalez) doppelganger. Rupture came to this Earth seeking justice for Reverb’s death. Iris (Candice Patton) decides she’s finally ready to open up to Barry about her feelings for him.

And, in case you missed it, here’s the extended promo trailer for the episode:
