If you were waiting for the return of the first Firestorm to The Flash, I have some bad news. Technically, that’s not Firestorm pictured above, it’s someone else... someone sinister. You can tell because this Ronnie Raymond is sporting a black jacket, widely accepted as the most evil of jacket colors.

Rumor—and set photos—had it that Robbie Amell’s upcoming guest appearance would be of the Earth-2 variety, and now we have confirmation. Showrunner Andrew Kreisberg told Entertainment Weekly, “You can’t keep a good Firestorm down. Only this time, he’s back with a twist—a deadly Earth-Two version of our beloved Ronnie in the form of Deathstorm.” Entertainment Weekly also provides a full look at the newest Ronnie, part of which is above. (He should also be sporting a goatee, don’t you think?)

It’s a neat way to bring back a character without getting into time travel or resurrection (yet). Plus, we already met the wife of Earth-2’s Ronnie in a promo. It’s Caitlin Snow (Danielle Panabaker), as the equally evil Killer Frost!

At some point in Season 2 it looked like Snow started wearing more black (especially eye-shadow or mascara) and slightly less conservative outfits, and I started wondering if they weren’t trying to hint that at some point the Earth-2 version had snuck in and swapped places with the Earth-1 version.

It’d fit with the theme so far of Earth 2 villains trying to run and hide from Zoom.
