The Flash’s 7th season will meet the return of some fan-favourite villains, according to star Danielle Nicolet. We already know about Killer Frost, but who else is Grant Gustin’s Barry Allen going to find himself up against?

Ahead of The Flash’s return, Nicolet – who plays attorney Cecile Horton in the Arrowverse series – has revealed that “some bad guy favourites” will be “paying a visit or two”.

During The Flash’s presentation at the virtual CCXP in Brazil, Danielle said that although she can’t tell us too much about the new season, she will admit to time travel – and some exciting villainy.

“Do you think she has the best table manners? Probably not.”
