Barry is going on a date! Get your sneak peek into tonight’s episode of The Flash airing on The CW at 8 PM (ET/PT).
Last week on The Flash, season 1, episode 12, “The Sound and the Fury” Hartley Rathaway/Pied Piper (Andy Mientus) came into town to cause drama for his mentor, Dr. Harrison Wells (Tom Cavanagh). In this quest, Hartley let himself be purposely captured by The Flash (Grant Gustin) solely so he could steal The Flash’s molecular composition/frequency. When Hartley breaks out of the S.T.A.R. Labs prison for meta-humans, Dr. Wells uses his super speed to attempt to catch him, only to pass out since his body can’t handle the amount of energy passing through it. And sadly, Hartley’s escape utilizes a bomb that knocks Cisco (Carlos Valdes) unconscious. Hartley’s appearance in town let’s the team and the world know that Dr. Wells was warned of the potential explosion of the accelerator. Learning this information got the team to look at Dr. Wells differently, but in the end the team worked together to capture Hartley and begin to build the trust bridge. Also, new plot points for the series arise when Hartley Rathaway/Pied Piper tells Cisco he knows howl to locate Ronnie Raymond/Firestorm (Robbie Amell), as well as how to fix him. And Detective Joe West (Jesse L. Martin) and Eddie Thawne (Rick Cosnett) team up to find out more about Dr. Harrison Wells.
Love is in the air — Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) decides that she and Barry need to move on from Ronnie and Iris (Candice Patton) and find new loves so she takes him for a night out at the local karaoke bar. Caitlin doesn’t have any luck making a love connection but Barry meets Linda Park (Malese Jow), a sports reporter for the Central City Picture News, and asks her out on a date. When Barry tells Iris he has a date, Iris is surprised by her reaction. Meanwhile, Cisco considers Hartley’sdangerous offer and the team searches for Shawna (Britne Oldford), a meta-human with teleportation powers, who just busted her boyfriend Clay (Micah Parker) out of Iron Heights. When Henry (John Wesley Shipp) snoops around in an attempt to help Joe and Barry solve the crime, he ends up in the infirmary after getting roughed up by inmates. (via The CW)
