"The Flash" episode "Rogue Time", written by Brooke Eikmeier, Kai Yu Wu, and directed by John Behring, features DC Comics super-villain 'Golden Glider' aka 'Lisa Snart' (Peyton List), airing March 24, 2015 on The CW:

" 'Captain Cold' (Wentworth Miller) and 'Heat Wave' (Dominic Purcell) return to 'Central City'...

"...the 'Flash' (Grant Gustin) learns that Cold's baby sister 'Lisa Snart' (List) will also help to wreak havoc on the city..."

"...'Lisa' is a wild child, anxious to prove to her older brother she’s got what it takes to be in his criminal gang. She is sly, charming, and even a little sadistic. 

"She's also not afraid to use her sexuality to get what she wants...

"...which will put her on a collision course with 'S.T.A.R. Labs' employee 'Cisco Ramon' (Carlos Valdes)..."

The 'Golden Glider', enemy of "The Flash", first appeared in DC Comics' "Flash" #250 (June 1977). The evil alter ego of 'Lisa Snart', she is an Olympic level figure skater. Thanks to a pair of experimental skates that create their own ice, she is able to skate on any surface, including mid-air. She acquired a number of jewel-themed gadgets and weapons, including poisoned rings and 'hypnosis jewels', using them with devastating effect against the 'Flash'.
