    Regarding Sue, I can’t honestly see them continuing with her if there’s no Ralph. They’re kinda’ a pair - at least in the long term. What can that character, by herself, possibly bring to the show?

    It’s sucks for the actress, but hopefully she’ll find work elsewhere. Regarding Ralph though, or more specifically, the elongated man... if they can fabricate another Batwoman out of fresh air, couldn’t they do the same for Ralph? Recast and continue where they left off..?

    Who is this new Elongated Man going to be? Dalph Ribney?

    Why would this new one continue with Sue?

    I suppose though that they could attach Sue to someone else. It's not like Oliver Queen ended up with Dinah Lance (who didn't even have that name) but with Felicity instead.

    As many people have said already, the flash cast is already overpopulated.

    When was the last time Cisco or Caitlin genuinely had a purpose on this show? Next they’re promoting Chester and Allegra? Cisco will be demoted further, and if/when Caitlin comes back, they won’t know what to do with her.

    Chester may take over from Cisco, but once Allegra and Nash make up they’re going to lose the point of having her around too. It’ll be back to the Barry and Iris show.

    Even Ralph hasn’t done that much this season. The focus has very much been on Barry, the mirror verse and the speedforce.

    I wonder how this is going to change the final episodes of this past season they were planning on filming once they could. I imagine they’ll get a massive rewrite.

    Next season should be interesting.

    Villains arent automatically welcomed with opened arms, it takes time usually. We're not running these people out of town, locking them up...they got fired from their job. Look at Billie Bush....he took the brunt of his past interview with Trump, got fired, and is now coming back into the workforce. This hasnt been 10 years where we're still holding Hartley accountable, it's not even one month. Its 72hrs thus far.

    It isn't a either/or situation where either you act like a horrible person 100% of the time or you are a saint 100% of the time. There are plenty of people who can act professional at work and complete *****es in their personal lives/online.

    I think they will resolve the Eva and Mirrorverse story arc by at least episode 2 of season 7 then we will move on to Godspeed.

    I wonder how this will effect the episode originally shot as 6x20 now as 7x01, as it was 90% completed before production shut down.

    If there were Ralph scenes in it, now it's probably even less than 90%.

    Yeah, they might have to reshoot the whole episode again, or even rewrite parts of it, depending on his role.

    They might reuse the action scene with the Flash and perhaps a few others, but that could be about it. They might have to fashion a new episode around it to fill out all the missing Ralph parts.

    I mentioned this in the recasting thread but Ralph is probably one of those few characters that you could recast and provide an believable in-universe explanation for it due to his powers.

    You could always say that he got framed as well and had to permanently take on a new appearance.

    But what about Sue? She was framed as well. I wouldn't want her to take on a new appearance. I liked Natalie Dreyfuss in the role. If she stays as she looks normally then there's no reason Ralph should change.

    They could probably throw in a twist; maybe stating that his secret identity was exposed or that the charges against him are impossible to reverse whereas Sue's aren't.

    Or maybe they could just say that he had an accident involving some meta-gene factor that resulted in him being unable to revert back to his original appearance.

    With all of the crazy things that this show has done before, this wouldn't really be out of the ordinary in comparison.

    Eric Wallace (who's the showrunner) really needs to come out and state on whether they will recast Ralph or not. This will unfortuntely close the door on Hartley Sawyer ever returning but still I would like clarity on this matter.

    But he or Greg Berlanti or someone already said they weren't going to do a "soap opera recast" for Batwoman as that would present an "elephant in the room" supposedly for audiences. So if that's their reasoning for Batwoman, whose actress has only been around for one season, then it's likely they won't want to do the same for Elongated Man.

    In both cases though there were perfectly reasonable explanations for why they would look different, even apart from just ignoring they look different like you'd get for James Bond.

    Sue was the one framed. So, Ralph could take the fall for her and be "on the run". He takes on a new identity and, obviously, appearance.

    Big deal, they slapped something together with existing footage. There’s nothing new because they haven’t started production yet. Honestly they should’ve waited until say November when they’ll hopefully have new footage.
