Fan favorite director Greg Beeman (Smallville, Heroes) helmed the new episode of Swamp Thing that is headed our way on Friday, June 28 and DC Universe has released some pictures and a description!
The episode is called “Drive All Night” and here’s how it is described. Also interesting to note: DC Comics icon The Phantom Stranger is in this episode, and if you look closely, there appears to be a photo that includes actor Macon Blair in the role, in a photo with Swampy. The Phantom Stranger was first introduced by DC Comics in 1952 but grew in popularity around the same time Swamp Thing’s Bronze Age comics were produced.
Haunted by the ghost of her childhood friend who reemerges from the swamp, Abby’s forced to confront both her past with the Sunderlands as well as the dark forces at play in Marais. While she continues to search for a cure for Alec, he struggles to come to terms with his transformation with the help of a mysterious Phantom Stranger (recurring guest star MACON BLAIR). When Abby’s life is threatened, Swamp Thing is able to use his abilities to save her, but it’s Matt, ultimately, who saves the day – further isolating Swamp Thing from the human world. Meanwhile, Sheriff Cable learns some disturbing information about her son, while Jason Woodrue shares a revelation about Swamp Thing with Avery Sunderland.
The new photos can be found below. Franklin Rho wrote the episode which guest stars Elle Graham as Susie Coyle, Given Sharp as Shawna Sunderland, Macon Blair as the Phantom Stranger (!!), Al Mitchell as Delroy Tremayne, Scott Deckert as Mike, and William Mark McCullough as Remy DuBois.
