Ashley Rickards has been tapped to play a villain in the third season of “The Flash.” She will be arriving in the fourth episode of Season 3 as Rosalind “Rosa” Dilon, who is better known as The Top.

Spoiler alert! This article contains "The Flash" spoilers. Read on if you would like to know what happens next before the new episode airs.

This villain, one of the most dangerous in the comics, has a unique power to literally make heads spin. The character appears in the comic books as a man but the TV version will feature a partnership with Mirror Master in a manner very similar to Bonnie and Clyde. Together, these two will wreak havoc on Central City with a little romance on the side. Mirror Man will be played by Grey Damon.

Rickards was one of the lead characters on “Awkward” for five seasons. Earlier, she also appeared on “One Tree Hill” and two episodes in the first season on “American Horror Story.”

Executive producers Aaron and Todd Helbing revealed to E! Online that the episode would be an origin story for Mirror Master. It wil alsol mark the return of “Prison Break” alumnus Wentworth Miller. They add that they are both very excited for how this will turn out and viewers will get to see who comes out on top between Mirror Master and Captain Cold’s struggle.

They also reveal that everyone on set was very excited for Miller’s return because he “always brings this amazing presence.” Miller has been able to strike a unique deal with DC TV, which not only made him a regular on “Legends of Tomorrow” but also in other DC TV series including “The Flash,” “Arrow” and even “Supergirl.” The role of Captain Cold has transcended far above what it was originally made for.

After the announcement of The Flash appearing in Gorilla Town to the untimely activation of the Flashpoint Paradox, and now the addition of exciting new characters, it appears that viewers are in for a lot of the show’s boldest plays for the upcoming third season. “The Flash” season 3 will premiere on October 4, 2016 on The CW. It also airs on Fox8 in Australia.
