The CW's The Flash season 1's 15th episode airing March 17 at its regular 8:00-9:00 pm Tuesday time slot is titled "Out of Time." Directed by Thor Freudenthal from a script written by Todd and Aaron Helbing, the next installment in the TV adaptation of the DC Comics series will have the Scarlet Speedster going against a meta-human who can control the weather, Cisco-codenamed Weather Wizard.

According to the studio's press release, Mark Mardon aka The Weather Wizard (guest star Liam McIntyre, best known for his starring role in the Spartacus series on Starz TV) appears in Central City intent on avenging his brother Clyde's (Chad Rook) death, and sets his sights on Det. Joe West (Jesse L. Martin), who shot Clyde, as seen in The Flash's maiden episode. When Mardon attacks Joe and Barry Allen (Grant Gustin), Barry acting as the Flash is able to super-speed them to safety, but Mardon gets away. Barry warns Joe not to go after a meta-human alone but Joe doesn't listen and ends up in grave danger. Mark, like the late Clyde, has the power to manipulate the weather.

Meanwhile, Cisco Ramon (Carlos Valdes) looks into the night the team captured the Reverse Flash and realizes something doesn't add up and begins to wonder whether Joe was right about Dr. Wells (Tom Cavanagh). On a lighter note, the episode will also have Barry and Linda (guest star Malese Jow) ending up on an awkward double date with Eddie (Rick Cosnett) and Iris (Candice Patton).

Interestingly, the extended mid-season teaser trailer promises that the 17th episode's "last five minutes will change the course of history." And given its title "Out of Time," it may be that it will here that Barry will finally be able to tap his power to travel through time. In the DC Comic mythology, the Flash can not only travel through space at the speed of light, he can also move back and forth through time.
