Last episode “stretched” our imagination bringing a new member to Team Flash. Felicity waltzes into an unsecured Star Labs and sees Ralph flexing these peculiar abilities. Nevertheless, she arrives ready to celebrate! They round up Caitlin, who is feeling uneasy about a night out, but they coax her into tagging along.
Girls Night Out
The girls begin their night with a toast, which Cecile [responsibly] gives to Caitlin. Looking up, Caitlin’s sees the shady guy from the bar coming to summon her back to her job. She refuses, so he menacingly pops out his eye and brandishes a snake-like extension. Caitlin is forced into a stare down and loses -or should I say gains- her cool by flinging SnakeEye through the window with a frosty blast.
#Feminism – We’re Strong Women
The ladies return to Star Labs with Killer Frost. She briefs them on Amunet’s criminal history and prepares to run away. The remaining ladies initiate a plan to take down Amunet. Iris approaches Frost to highlight her decent, endearing qualities. She tells Frost Caitlin is afraid of being Killer Frost and Frost is equally afraid of being Caitlin.
Caitlin returns to Star Labs and doctors her wounds. Iris asks Caitlin why she never told her or Team Flash about Frost’s ability to reemerge. She withheld truth because she and Iris are “work” friends but not quite real friends.
Felicity runs a test on the Weeper’s terrific tears and sees they function similarly to an opioid. Next, she tracks Amunet’s location, but Caitlin chooses to stay behind fearing she might lose control and become a liability. Amunet takes the Weeper to exhibit his abilities and gain distribution. Felicity and Iris prepare to charge in but are stopped by henchmen. Frost arrives and tries to leverage her protective services in exchange for Iris and Felicity. Amunet attacks, which forces Frost to protect the ladies in an igloo-shaped barrier while Cecile activates a large magnet that strips Amunet of her power wielding glove. Since Amunet is rendered powerless, Frost creates a dagger and closes in for the kill, but Iris talks her down.
Guys Night In
Cisco makes way to Joe’s house to prepare for Barry’s bachelor party. They begin watching old videos of Barry’s childhood -borrrrrrrring! Ralph, who apparently isn’t invited, walks into the lame event and insists they spice it up, so he leads the fellas to a strip club – where he is unsurprisingly known as the top patron. They approach the bar and order drinks. Since Barry’s metabolism is elevated, drinks do nothing for him, yet Cisco brings a concoction to keep Barry inebriated all night.
Oh Hell No
Ralph uses his stretchy abilities to pilfer dollars while Barry drunkenly tells small audiences that he’s the Flash. Luckily they think he’s clowning and dismiss it as drunken antics. Dancers take the stage, and guess who the first dancer is – you guessed it – Cecile’s daughter!
Everything Went Well – Not!
The fellas arrive at Star Labs to culminate a chaotic night. At first Barry and Iris try to play it like their nights went swimmingly before, ultimately, telling the truth. After emerging victorious from a perilous night, Iris thinks her and Caitlin have successfully bonded and asks Caitlin to be her Maid of Honor.
As usual, all is not well that ends well. The Weeper walks down a dark alley sensing a presence behind him. The Thinker swoops in telling him he has not fulfilled his original purpose and must get back to work. With the ability to create a love-like drug, what is the Weeper’s true purpose? How will Ralph become a functioning hero within Team Flash? For the latest development tune in at 8 to Atlanta’s CW!
