This week’s episode of The Flash “Magenta”, showed us even more consequences of Barry’s altering of the timeline. In the previous episode (episode 2), Barry realizes that the world he is now living in is still different and that nothing will ever be exactly the same again. Flash from Earth 2 explained to Barry, after he ripped him from the speedforce, that every action has an equal and opposite reaction. Therefore, a separate but similar timeline was created. One where Cisco can control his powers and where Caitlin is developing Killer Frost’s powers. The changes even rippled across the arrowverse. Diggle now has a son and Oliver has sleeves again.
Meta’s from the Flashpoint are also being given their powers back by none other than Dr. Alchemy. First it was The Rival, Edward Clarss and now Frankie Kane aka Magenta. Magenta has the ability to control and bend metal at her will. Kind of like a female Magneto. Magenta is a second personality of Frankie who is out to kill her foster father John James for abusing her. Unfortunately Barry cannot take on Magenta alone. Luckily for him a breach is opened at the lab and Wells and his daughter Jesse come through.
Jesse is now a speedster, which bums Wally out as they were both hit by the dark matter and only Jesse has powers. Well’s brought her back to in hopes to convince her not to become a superhero. That doesn’t go as planned as Jesse ends up being the one to help Barry; she creates a figure-8 while running to propel the tanker Magenta is trying to drop on the hospital in order to kill her adopted father. While Jesse is keeping the tanker in the air, Barry is trying to reach Frankie and get Magenta to stop. He is successful and is able to learn how Dr. Alchemy is getting the Metas to come to him; Dr. Alchemy reaches out to them in dreams. First the dreams are at night only, then all the time and they slowly become more painful until they Metas finally hear Dr. Alchemy’s voice calling to them.
We then learn that Wally has also had dreams about being Kid Flash. Will he go to Alchemy in order to get his powers back?
After saving the day, Barry gets Magenta into a good home and makes sure she is alright and Jesse gets a suit and a new name Jesse Quick. Iris and Barry then try going on a second date but once again Barry has to leave and go to the station. At the station Joe shows Barry Clarss getting killed by Dr. Alchemy. Sidebar: how is Iris getting back?
We meet a Bonnie and Clyde couple of sorts. One of which is a Meta that can travel through mirrors and traps Barry inside one.
