The Flash is due to return for the second half of its fifth season this week, and it sounds like Barry Allen and Ralph Dibny will be delving into the criminal underworld.

The pair – aka The Flash and Elongated Man – will enter Central City's underworld in episode 13, with star Hartley Sawyer teasing what's in store.

"I’m maybe most excited for episode 13," he told Superhero Insider. "That’s like Ralph and Barry, for the whole episode, that’s like their storyline and that was just a blast to shoot because I love working with Grant and I love those two characters together.

"In our fight against Cicada, we need to find something sort of in like the underworld kind of thing, the criminal world. Everybody’s like, 'I don’t know where to look,' and Ralph’s like, 'I do, I spent a lot of time there. I know where to look.'

"So it takes those two characters on this journey into this world that Ralph knows well and Barry and the others don’t, and some really really fun stuff happens."

Sawyer also teased more between Dibny and Killer Frost, continuing: "Episode 11 is a great one because we get to see more of Ralph/Elongated Man with Killer Frost, and like some real heart-to-heart stuff there.

"I actually love those two characters together because I feel like he totally gets her and he’s not by thrown by it. He’s like, 'Yeah, whatever, frosty Oprah.' She’s like, 'I’ve killed people' and he’s like, 'I mean, yeah, who hasn’t? Moving on. How are you doing?'

"So we get to do some of that, and then Ralph also really steps up in that episode and helps save some meta-humans and all of that. So that was a super-fun one to do."

The Flash airs on Tuesdays at 8pm ET/PT on The CW in the US. The series airs on Sky One in the UK.
