News from The Flash: We’re getting yet another speedster—I know, you’re completely surprised. Get a look at Jesse Quick in her full costume in today’s TV-Cap, and while you’re here, watch John Cleese recap The Walking Dead, learn all you need to know about Iron Fist, and much more.
Speedy and Stylish. The Flash has found an ally in Jesse Quick. The daughter of Harrison Wells is embracing the superhero lifestyle—Cisco crafted her an outfit and everything. You can see the new super suit in all its glory in the above images, and you can catch Jesse in action in the next episode of The Flash, “The New Rogues.” See more pictures of Jesse at CBR.

Camp and Sci-Fi. I have two excellent pieces of casting news to drop on you today. First of all, Alyssa Milano is joining the cast for season two of Wet Hot American Summer in a secret role. Over at Syfy, 12 Monkeys is getting a new villain in season three, and he’ll be played by Christopher Lloyd. Yes, as in Back to the Future Christopher Lloyd. He’s guesting as cult leader Zalmon Shaw.

Raven Delivery. Game of Thrones offers plenty of material for comedians to plunder and use in skits, and Conan O’Brien has paid a visit to the well of Westeros at least once before. But apparently he knows who really will end up on the Iron Throne. He reveals this colossal secret in the above “scrapped skit.” Watch if you dare. No, really, watch. It’s not a spoiler. [Nerdist]
Bonus Content! Fan of Seeso’s HarmonQuest? Then prepare to be happy because Seeso has granted the role playing animated live-action combo a second season. You don’t have to wait until 2017 for new content though. Seeso will roll out HarmonQuest: Expanded Universe on November 3; it will include bonus videos and deleted scenes from season one.
Catch Up. Season seven of The Walking Dead arrives in mere days on October 23. Thank goodness. A lot’s happened through the years, but thankfully, John Cleese is here to narrate a handy summary of everything that’s occurred—it’s like a highlights reel. Even with the blood and walkers, this is the most charming video you’ll watch all week. [Nerdist]
Connecting Dots. The sixth season of American Horror Story (AHS) is the one that’s supposed to start bringing the past seasons of the series together. Showrunners Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk talked to US Weekly about how Roanoke connects to Coven and Freak Show. Get all the details here at Nerdist.
In the Future. Season three of Black Mirror comes to Netflix tomorrow, October 21 (hey, we have a review for that), and season four is slated to premiere in 2017. Each season has six episodes, and Jodie Foster will direct one them in season four. She’ll direct an installment starring Rosemarie DeWitt. [Deadline]
Educate Yourself. Marvel is bringing Iron Fist to Netflix in March 2017 which means you have months to read all the comics and learn about the character’s history. Or, you could watch the latest installment of The Dan Cave. Dan tells you everything you need to know about the character in the above video in mere minutes. Done and done. [Nerdist]
Recap and Review. Last night brought two fresh installments of shows we recap here at Nerdist. Read about the latest events in both Arrow and American Horror Story. Tonight brings Fox’s presentation of The Rocky Horror Picture Show: Let’s Do the Time Warp Again, and we have an advanced review right this way.
