Blacksmith is the boss of an underground black market for supervillains.

With a lot of metahumans at her disposal, Blacksmith will stop at nothing to make sure her business thrives in every way possible.

Her first appearance is slated for The Flash Season 4 Episode 5, which is aptly titled "Girls Night Out."

That installment will also feature an appearance from Arrow veteran, Emily Bett Rickards, who will reprise her role as the talented Felicity Smoak.

Considering the title of the episode, are we to assume that Felicity is stopping by to embark on night out with the likes of Iris and Caitlin?

I have no idea, but that's my best guess based on the episode title alone. 

If you're a fan of genre fare, then the chances are that you've witnessed the awesome acting chops of Sackhoff before. 

Her extensive TV credits include Battlestar Galactica, Bionic Woman, 24 and more recently, Longmire.

With Longmire confirmed to be ending, fans have been questioning which role the actress would take on next, and this news is fascinating. 

Sackhoff is not the only Battlestar Galactica veteran to make the jump to The Flash. In recent years, Rekha Sharma, Tahmoh Penikett, and James Callis have appeared. 

As previously reported, Neil Sandilands has been cast as the big villain for Season 4.

His right-hand will be played by Kim Engelbrecht. She will be playing The Mechanic, the brains behind all of The Thinker's crazy operations.

The Flash Quotes

One mystery I cannot figure out is why some people come into our lives and why some people go. Others become a part of you. Some friendships feel like they'll last forever and others end far too soon. Not every friendship is meant to last forever. What does last forever is the pain when that person is gone.
