Finally, Cisco’s (Carlos Valdes) metahuman secret is out to Team Flash and they took it a lot better than he expected. Of course, it wasn’t Cisco’s choice to come clean but rather the work of Earth Two’s Harrison Wells (Tom Cavanagh) — who’s kind of a jerk.
Luckily, Cisco was able to use his powers to track down the meta of the week — Doctor Light, who also happens to be Earth Two’s version of Linda Park (Malese Jow). That’s quite a conundrum for Barry (Grant Gustin). His ex-girlfriend is a supervillain in another universe and now she’s come to his world.
While Earth Two’s Linda may be contained for now, that doesn’t keep Zoom from thinking she’s live. That’ll come in handy on the next episode when Team Flash tries to use her to lure him out.
As for Cisco, when all was said and done, Barry and Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) were very understanding of the secrets he was hiding behind and even suggested he give himself a name. After all, he’s the master of naming metas.
In this case it was Barry to spring Vibe on him, though. Now fans just have to wait and see if he’ll get a cool suit to go along with The Flash’s.
It should be noted that this version of Vibe is very different from the comics. In print, Vibe has seismic powers, is skilled in hand to hand combat and is quite the breakdancer. There’s still time to introduce elements like these to “The Flash’s” Vibe, but for now that doesn’t look to be the case.
It’s interesting to note that while Earth Two Wells was able to figure out Cisco was a meta thanks to a watch he developed that detects them, Caitlin did not read as having powers. So where, exactly, will her Killer Frost abilities come from? That’s a question that will have to wait for another episode.
