The Flash Episode 3×07 Title, Synopsis, Stills & Promos
Unleashing Your Inner Kid Flash
In last week’s episode of The Flash, Wally’s dreams of being Kid Flash get stronger and more painful. Barry reveals Wally was Kid Flash in Flashpoint to Joe, Iris and Wally. Although Barry warns them of his fate from Flashpoint, Wally is convinced he should be a speedster. However, Joe is completely against Wally receiving powers. Like the Rival, Wally’s dreams are being controlled by Dr. Alchemy. The team puts Wally in The Pipeline to keep Alchemy from getting to him. Unable to stop the increased frequency and intensity of the dreams and pain, Wally volunteers to be bait for Alchemy. Reluctantly, Joe and Barry go with the plan, using the CCPD Swat Team as backup. Unfortunately, it’s not enough to stop the mysterious villain. Although the plan works and they are able to capture Alchemy for a moment, the villain explains Barry has no idea what’s about to begin. Ominously, the ground starts to shake as a blue/white streak starts moving around them. Since Barry is able to perceive things faster with the Speed Force, he’s the only one able to see the streaks of Savitar. Savitar makes his presence felt by freeing all of Alchemy’s followers and killing the entire swat team. Meanwhile, Wally seems possessed as Alchemy encourages him to take his power. Before Joe or Barry can stop him, Wally grabs the Philosopher’s Stone encasing him in a cocoon.
In order to imbue the Flashpoint powers back into Wally, Alchemy has created an elaborate plan. It first started in previous episodes when Wally began having dreams of being a speedster. With The Rival and Magenta showing up in previous episodes, Alchemy had been distracting The Flash from seeing other parts of his plan with these metas. Creating the belief that Wally should have powers, especially after seeing Jesse with her Speed Force powers, Alchemy is enticing Wally to seek him out. In order to ensure Wally finding him, Alchemy increased the intensity and frequency of pain in Wally’s head and unleashed a meta who can turn into a shadow, Shade, at the same time. Having only seen three of the six metas created by the husks found by Julian Albert, we can only suspect we’ve seen half, if not less, of Dr. Alchemy’s plans. We might be able to guess that Savitar and Alchemy might be two of the three husks remaining. Since Caitlin didn’t have the meta-gene when Earth-2 Harry Wells arrived to stop Zoom, it’s more than possible one of the husks came from her.
A Snow Storm is Brewing
After having met Caitlin’s mother in the previous episode, we know that she is on a path to become Killer Frost. Before the events of Flashpoint, Caitlin was proven not to have any meta-gene by Earth-2 Harry Wells’ meta-detecting watch. However, due to Barry’s selfish decision after defeating Zoom, Caitlin’s fate has changed. As I mentioned above, it’s possible she was transformed into her Flashpoint counterpart by Dr. Alchemy. Unable to pinpoint how and where she’s getting her powers, Caitlin has been terrified of what she’s becoming. So much so, she took Cisco’s power-dampening handcuffs to restrict herself from using her powers. When Cisco accuses H.R. of taking them, she reveals her powers to him. To see if she’ll become Killer Frost, she ask Cisco to vibe her. He sees the two of them battling as Vibe and Killer Frost, but doesn’t reveal it to her, because she believes she’ll have to leave the team.
When the team gathers to talk about Wally and Alchemy, the subject of ignoring a problem comes up. No longer able to keep the secret, Cisco pushes Caitlin to tell everyone she has cold powers. Upset, she tells him it wasn’t his secret to tell, because she’s the one turning evil and has to leave the team soon. Barry goes after her to explain all the problems are caused by him and his creation of Flashpoint. Before they take off to stop Alchemy, Caitlin has a scowl on her face as she realizes Barry is the cause of her becoming Killer Frost. After losing her mentor, her husband, and being fooled by Jay Garrick, on top of Barry creating Flashpoint, this could be the straw that broke the camel’s back. We’ll find out in this week’s episode, directed by Kevin Smith, The Flash won’t be able to fix everything he’s broken. Also, Greg Grunberg of Star Wars and Heroes fame will make a guest appearance.
