It was Vibe versus Vibe in this week’s episode of The Flash. Gypsy arrived in Central City to reclaim a fugitive from Earth 19. The fugitive being H.R. Wells.
Gypsy arrived at Star Labs to gather H.R., shooting him with a futuristic stun gun and then proceeded to use her vibing abilities to knock Cisco over. Cisco returned fire and simultaneously asks her out on a date. Wally then joined the group and attempted to use his superspeed to his advantage but Gypsy was able to freeze him in his tracks, literally. Gypsy then went on to reveal to Team Flash that H.R. is being sought after because he broke their non-authorized breach law which on Earth 19 is punishable by death.
Unfortunately for H.R. the only way he can stay on this Earth is if he challenges Gypsy to a trial by combat. Fortunately Cisco is up for the task once he learns that H.R. came to their Earth because he wanted to rewrite his story. H.R. was a powerful and wealthy man but when it came down to it he knew he was a fraud who didn’t matter and he wanted to change that. This was enough for Cisco to want to invest in him and their budding friendship.
Julian and his lousy interpersonal skills get him into hot water in this episode. Especially when he tells Barry that he isn’t fast enough and most likely won’t ever be fast enough to change the future and save Iris.
Iris herself had a death wish in this episode. She decided now would be a good time to start that brother/sister crime fighting duo with Wally. Wanting to take down the arms dealer infecting Central City, Iris had Wally snag CCPD’s file on the criminals in order to get her a story for work. She nearly gave Joe a heart attack when she distracts him by telling him that Barry and her are thinking of expanding their family…. with a pet. We all thought she was going a different route with that one.
Barry and H.R. also tried a different route with Gypsy. Hoping to ambush her, Barry got handcuffed instead. She saw the entire thing coming and decided to take H.R. as insurance that the battle between her and Cisco would commence. Thankfully for Cisco, Julian figured out Gypsy’s weakness; she comes off the ground for a split second when she exists her breach during her breach-blast signature move. This is a huge advantage for Cisco who is basically just learning to combat his powers.
During battle Gypsy took Cisco to Earth 2 via breach. He returned the favor by taking her to Kara’s Earth and then she pulled him into another breach that brings them to a volcano where the two flirt once more. Gypsy then brought Cisco back to his Earth and told him that his fear and insecurity are holding him back. He is just as powerful as she is; they vibe at the same frequency.
That is when Cisco decided to use Julian’s inside knowledge and knocks her off her feet. He wins the battle, gains H.R.’s freedom and the life of Gypsy. Fortunately for Gypsy Cisco doesn’t play that game and let her live. Gypsy returned to Earth 19 (exiting just before kissing Cisco) with word that H.R. has been killed by her. Unfortunately this means that H.R. can never return home.
Iris also returned home safely thanks to Wally who saved her from being shot by the arms dealer after she was caught snooping around. She almost cost CCPD their case but was able to get her front page article. After talking to Barry we discover that Iris was reckless because she is afraid she won’t leave something behind; she wants to become a great reporter before Savitar kills her.
Fortunately Barry has a new found plan that will hopefully change the future and save Iris. That plan involves Wally saving his sister. Although Barry has ceased to gain speed, Wally is gaining it at an alarmingly fast rate. He will have to be the one to save Iris, not Barry.
