TVLine Items: Flash Return, Lucy Liu's Marvel Gig, Umbrella Academy & More

Barry Allen needs to find his way out the Speed Force, and quick, because a familiar foe is about to “pop” back into town.

Teleporting metahuman Shawna Baez (Britne Oldford), aka Peek-a-Boo, will return to stir up trouble in The Flash‘s Season 4 premiere (airing Tuesday, Oct. 10 on The CW), reports.

Peek-a-Boo was first introduced in the Season 1 episode “Crazy for You” after she broke into Iron Heights prison to free her boyfriend/partner-in-crime Clay Parker. She was last seen escaping from Team Flash at the end of Season 1 after Captain Cold double-crossed Barry & Co., releasing five of the metahuman prisoners imprisoned in Star Labs.

Peek-a-Boo has also been featured in three episodes of The Flash: Chronicles of Cisco, a web series that follows Cisco’s after-hours work making improvements to Barry’s supersuit.
