Barry has his hands full in next week’s episode of “The Flash.”

According to the synopsis for Season 4, episode 2 of the CW series, Barry (Grant Gustin) takes on a dangerous metahuman who can control technology, while also confronting an obstacle in his personal life.

Details about the metahuman have been scarce, but the character is going to be played by Dominic Burgess. Interestingly, just earlier this week, the 35-year-old actor shared a link to a news article announcing the addition of DC villain Kilg%re to the show’s current season. Does this mean that Burgess’ mystery character is actually Kilg%re?

Meanwhile, Barry and Iris (Candice Patton) go to couples therapy in an attempt to resolve their issues that arise from his six-month stint in the Speed Force.

“It’s a lot of fun in episode 2,” executive producer Andrew Kreisberg told Entertainment Weekly. “Barry and Iris keep comically clashing inadvertently because she’s used to being in charge [of the team], and he’s used to being in charge, and so they wind up going to couples therapy to work through it. The two of them with the therapist is some of the funniest stuff we have ever done on this show, but it also leads to a deepening of their relationship.”

Elsewhere in the episode, Cisco (Carlos Valdes) tells Barry and the rest of the team about the recent upgrades he made to Barry’s suit.

“I’ve built a self-repairing armor, nano-liquid circuitry, full-spectrum scanning and other bunch of big words,” Cisco says in the trailer for next week’s episode.

When Barry asks what else the new suit could do, Cisco hands him a thick instruction manual.

Cisco, however, realizes that the new suit still needs more tweaking when Barry experiences some issues with it after going out to the field.

Also in the next episode, Gypsy (Jessica Camacho) prepares for a hot date with Cisco but gets annoyed when his work keeps them apart.

“The Flash” Season 4, episode 2, titled “Mixed Signals,” airs on Tuesday, Oct. 17 at 8 p.m. EDT on The CW.
