The Flash Interview: Tom Cavanaugh on Directing the 100th Episode

It's less than a week until the 2018 Arrowverse crossover, "Elseworlds," airs and The Flash leads into that sure-to-be epic event with their own special episode. The Flash Season 5 Episode 8, "What's Past is Prologue," is the 100th episode of the series. 

With Team Flash struggling to stop Cicada, Team Flash does the thing they said they would never do again-- mess with the timeline. Barry and Nora head back into time in order to get materials they believe will help them stop Cicada, while not interfering with the timeline. Hmm... wonder how that will work?!?

On The Flash 100th episode red carpet, I spoke with Tom Cavanaugh about directing the monumental episode. Not only does Cavanaugh direct "What's Past is Prologue," but he also acts in the hour in multiple roles. 

When discussing the plans for the episode, the writers thought he would want to take a back seat in the episode to focus on directing, though Cavanaugh didn't want that at all. He told them, "I don't want you to write me light."
