It’s really easy to run into spoilers online these days and it’s also our responsibilities to prevent ourselves from posting spoilers, especially if it’s about a certain death.
But if it’s about a beloved character returning to a TV series or a movie, it’s A-okay to talk about it. Well, sort of.
According to Entertainment Weekly, The CW revealed that Robbie Amell will return to reprise his role as Ronnie Raymond in an upcoming episode of “The Flash” season 2. However, the actor will return with a major twist!
As most of you may already know, Barry Allen created a spacetime singularity over Central City and accidentally opened up a wormhole-like portal to a new dimension at the end of season one. In that particular episode, Ronnie also sacrificed his own life in an effort to close the wormhole over the city.
Of course, his apparent death doesn’t mean that he’s gone for good.

Amell’s character was formerly the other half of the Firestorm alongside Martin Stein (played by Victor Garber). When the actor returns to the show this month, he will appear as the Earth-2 version of Ronnie, who also happens to be a DC Comics villain known as Deathstorm.
“We are beyond excited to have Robbie back on The Flash,” executive producer Andrew Kreisberg said in a statement.
You can’t keep a good Firestorm down. Only this time, he’s back with a twist, a deadly Earth-Two version of our beloved Ronnie in the form of Deathstorm.
In the comics, Ronnie was resurrected as Deathstorm, a member of the Black Lantern corps, during the “Blackest Night” event. Another version of Deathstorm also appeared in Earth-3’s Crime Syndicate, which features evil versions of all the Justice League members.
In the upcoming episode of “The Flash”, the Earth-2 version of Ronnie will join forces with Killer Frost, the Earth-2 version of his wife Caitlin Snow (played by Danielle Panabaker), to cause havoc and defeat Barry Allen and his team.
