New comic reveals the return of the meta-human Girder

The Flash is all-new this week with episode 4×21, “The Runaway Dinosaur” — the highly anticipated episode written by Zack Stentz (Thor, X-Men: First Class) and directed by geek icon Kevin Smith (Clerks, Mallrats, Tusk).

The CW has released a new preview comic that dramatizes an interesting scene between Cisco and Iris. The two are in the S.T.A.R. Labs morgue (yes, they have a morgue) when a familiar foe returns from the dead:

That’s right — not only is Barry gone, but his old elementary school buddy Girder is back. And what do you know? His old crush Iris is standing right in front of him. Not good.

Girder (AKA Tony Woodward) was last seen in Season One’s “Power Outage,” being electrocuted to death by Farooq Gibran (AKA “Blackout”).

Here’s the full synopsis for “The Runaway Dinosaur”:

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.

The Flash airs Tuesday night at 8/7c on The CW. We’ll have full coverage leading up to the episode and we’ll be live-tweeting on Twitter when it airs, so be sure to follow us on Twitter, Facebook, and Tumblr for all the latest news!
