In case you haven't heard, The CW released a new and extended trailer for The Flash, just a day away from the release of its new episode. As awesome as all of the new footage looks, however, there are three extremely important things to take note of in this new trailer.

The Cosmic Treadmill = Time Machine

Fans have already seen Barry's famously tricked out treadmill multiple times before in the show's history. However, unlike its comic book counterpart, the live action version of the Cosmic Treadmill has never (successfully) been used as a time machine. Until now. Take a look at the following still from the trailer (or skip forward to the 0:50 mark in the video):

That's definitely what you think it is.

That's clearly the Reverse-Flash, and the device he's running on is definitely the Cosmic Treadmill! Thanks to EW, we already know that time travel plays a huge part in the return of the Reverse-Flash, and thanks to this trailer, now we know how that will play out.

Barry Allen in Earth-2

Much like the previous point, EW made the claim that Team Flash will eventually take the fight to Zoom on Earth-2, and now we have the stills to prove it.

Why's Barry wearing that suit? He seems to be wearing the same (if not a similar looking) suit earlier in the trailer, when Zoom kidnaps Patty right in front of him. Maybe she was kidnapped during a date when he was going to reveal his dual identity, causing him to go after her immediately? How many times will he travel to Earth-2?

The Crimson Comet Is Back

Despite claiming that his speed was gone for good in the earlier episodes, we can clearly see former speedster Jay Garrick at timestamp 0:40, back in his Earth-2 Flash costume. Will he also join in the fight to take down Zoom?

Maybe he, Barry, and Reverse-Flash will all team up against Zoom in the final battle of the season!

Of course, there's a ton of extra stuff we didn't cover here, so be sure to check out The Flash when it returns to TV on Tuesday, Jan. 19 at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
