"I found out your weakness, Snart; you'll do anything for your sister."
Barry discovers Cold's humanity
"Family of Rogues" is the third episode of the second season of The Flash, and the twenty-sixth episode overall. It aired on October 20, 2015.


When Barry and the team find out Captain Cold has been kidnapped, they form an uneasy alliance with his sister, Lisa. However, Barry feels double-crossed when he finds out Leonard is working with his father, Lewis Snart on a heist. Meanwhile, Joe is faced with a difficult decision.[1]




  • Interestingly enough, Barry used "Sam" as an alias when talking to Ironside's character, Lewis. Michael Ironside (Lewis Snart) also played the character Sam Fisher in the Splinter Cell series and this alias could be a reference to it.
  • Lewis' line, "Nobody talks to my son that way. Nobody." after killing David Rutenberg is reminiscent of the Justice League episode "Twilight", in which Darkseid (also voiced by Ironside) said a similar line while killing Desaad with his omega beam.
  • In the comics, Ronnie Raymond returns as an evil Black Lantern version of Firestorm named Deathstorm. In this episode, Martin Stein's flames change to blue, much like Deathstorm's in the comics.
