Last season of The Flash saw the character of Gypsy come in in a key role of the series. Initially coming in in more of an adversarial role, she eventually left on good terms after helping out the team. She also developed a bit of a relationship with one Cisco Ramon, and from the sound of it, that relationship will continue to blossom.
Joining in on the fun will be her father — Breacher — and the results sound like they’ll be hilarious. Oh yeah, and did we mention that the badass himself, Danny Trejo, will be playing the character? Here’s what executive producer Andrew Kreisberg had to say about the episode:
“Gypsy and Jessica [Camacho], they’re so tough and so strong. We’re like, ‘Obviously she came from somebody strong,’ and we just thought it would be a hilarious idea for Cisco, who’s managed to melt Gypsy’s heart, being unable to do the same with her father. We were in the room and we were like, ‘Who could we get?’ and someone said Danny Trejo and we all started laughing like, ‘He’d be great, but of course Danny Trejo’s not going to do this.’ But as I’ve discovered over these past few years, if you don’t ask, you don’t get it. So we reached out to him and his people, and it turned out he was a fan, and he was eager to do it, and he loved the character. I feel like we wrote him a great script. His character and his storyline with Cisco and Gypsy, it’s part of this slight redirection of the series this year — it’s just doing much more fun stories and much more just out and out hilarious things to match Barry’s newfound optimism and lightness.”
Sounds like it could be fun — but we’re sure it’ll also be all kinds of cheesy. That’s never stopped The Flash from being an enjoyable ride, though.
