The Flash (2014) s03e10 Episode Script

Borrowing Problems from the Future

1 Barry: My name is Barry Allen, and I am the fastest man alive.
To the outside world, I'm an ordinary forensic scientist, but secretly, with the help of my friends at S.
T.
A.
R.
Labs, I fight crime and find other meta-humans like me.
In an attempt to stop the evil speedster Savitar, I was accidentally thrust into the future, and I saw him murder the woman I love.
But I won't let that happen.
I'm going to do everything in my power to change the future, and I'm the only one fast enough to keep her alive.
I am The Flash.
Previously on "The Flash" You wanna open S.
T.
A.
R.
Labs to the public? In two weeks? Soft open.
- I'm Alchemy.
- Turning innocent people into meta-humans worshipping the Savitar? An article used to be written by Iris West-Allen.
Something's changed with our future.
- Barry.
- No! What you saw was one possibility of the future.
Then I can stop this from happening.
I I don't understand.
Where are we? Home.
I don't know what's gonna happen in the future.
All I know is right here, right now, I wanna spend every moment I can with you.
Don't! - Don't do this! - Barry [distorted.]
You lose, Barry.
No! [dramatic choral music.]
[whoosh.]
[roaring.]
[gasps.]
[distressed breathing.]
Babe, are you okay? - Yeah - Yeah.
Just a bad dream.
[pensive music.]
Go back to sleep.
Yeah, sure.
I'm not completely wide awake after hearing you scream in your sleep.
You wanna talk about it? No, you know what I wanna do? Hmm.
I wanna unpack.
It's been a month.
Do not change the subject, Bartholomew.
- Bartholomew? - Mm-hmm.
Am I in trouble? Well, this is the third night in a row.
I know something else that's happened three nights in a row.
- [chuckles.]
- [phones buzzing.]
[groans.]
[sighs.]
It's a fire.
Richmond Heights.
[exhales deeply.]
Go, Wally's gonna beat you there.
- What? - I just I just really love you.
[dramatic music.]
[whooshes.]
[sighs.]
[siren wailing.]
Detective Patterson just ran inside.
He hasn't come out yet.
The fire department will not make it here on time.
[whooshing.]
Help! I'm trapped in here! We gotta get him out of here.
This place is up in flames any second.
You see the soot around this door? - Yeah.
- 'Cause the fire has no ventilation, so if we open the door now, the sudden inrush of oxygen will cause an explosion.
Help! Okay, so what do we do? Create an exit point for the heat and smoke, and remove all the oxygen at the same time.
- Which will put out the fire.
- Help me! When I say so, open the door, all right? [whirring.]
Now.
[fire whooshing.]
[glass shatters, flames roaring.]
[whooshes.]
[panting.]
Flash, thanks.
[whooshes.]
Two of 'em.
Oh, man, that was so dope.
How do you stay so calm? You're like scary calm in the middle of a fight.
It's just experience, Wally.
That's why it's important for you to shadow me for a while, and try to learn everything I know.
And then I get to kick some ass.
Let me give you some advice, Wally.
Being a superhero's not about kicking ass.
Well nope, actually that's a straight-up lie.
There's a lot of ass-kicking involved.
Just keep doing what you're doing watching me.
You're doing great.
I gotta go to breakfast with Dad, but I'll catch up with you guys later.
[whooshes.]
Yo, that's where mm [grumbles.]
Nope.
- You okay? - My suit goes there.
Ah, two suits, one mannequin.
That is what we call a conundrum.
- No, I - [erratic beeping.]
Hey, are you okay? Yeah, these things have just been on the fritz lately.
It makes me feel like a criminal.
Hasn't been on the fritz, okay? Uh, maybe if you charge the battery, like I told you to.
Oh, I'm just supposed to hook myself up to an outlet, like I'm some sort of human tablet? Either you charge the cuffs, or you go all Frozone on us again.
Or you could fix them for me? - Or I could fix 'em.
- [snickers.]
- Sumptuous day, brethren.
- Oh, boy.
- Good morning, H.
R.
- Oh, not just good.
It's g-r-r-eat, and why is that? Because I'm finally ready to announce that the new S.
T.
A.
R.
Labs museum is ready for its opening soft opening so come.
- [electronic revving.]
- Let's take the tour.
This could've been avoided.
You know that, right? Mm-hmm.
[elevator dings.]
I just don't see why you're defending the yellow guy.
Yes, he goes everywhere The Flash goes, but this morning, for example, he's just standing back, waiting for the warehouse to burn down.
Well, maybe he's training with The Flash.
- You know, learning the ropes? - Okay, well, we send rookie cops out on patrol, expect them to perform.
Look, I think the yellow guy's gonna surprise you.
Once he gains a little bit of experience, he's gonna give The Flash a run for his money.
You know what I think? I think maybe he's just not that fast.
- Or maybe he's just a coward.
- You don't get paid to think.
- And Kid Flash ain't no coward.
- Kid Flash? Okay.
There it is.
The name says it all.
- [whoosh.]
- [groans.]
Hey, I say we just send him to Keystone.
We already have a Flash.
Wally.
- Did you hear any of that? - Any of what? Nothing, it was just a cop being stupid.
- Take you to breakfast? - Please.
[upbeat music.]
- Behold.
- Whoa! - You did all this? - Yeah.
Well, I don't wanna take all the credit.
I'm too modest to do that, but yeah.
Uh, who exactly is paying for all this? [laughs.]
That's a great question.
Olga! Allow me to introduce you to your new coworkers.
Everybody, this is Olga.
- Da.
- both: Hi.
Oh, and she doesn't really speak English so much, but she's great.
So right over here, we have the ticketing and the admissions.
Over there, our specialty coffees Oh, uh, that reminds me.
Caitlin Initially, I had you targeted for ticketing, but it occurs to me, with a few lessons in foam art, you could very well man up excuse me woman up our cappuccino stand.
What do you think? H.
R.
, I think Caitlin's gonna have plenty to do as it is.
Can I ask you a question? Do you want to eat pizza pockets for every meal for the rest of your life? You don't; nobody wants that.
What you want is an income, and we collectively need a cover for S.
T.
A.
R.
Labs for our continued operation.
He makes some good points.
Now for the pièce de résistance [electronic beep.]
Welcome to S.
T.
A.
R.
Labs.
[both laughing.]
I'm sorry, did you make a hologram of me? Oh, Francisco, you made it perfectly clear you didn't want to be a tour guide.
You're not.
You're a virtual tour guide.
Guess what.
That falls under the umbrella of not wanting to be a tour guide.
- On we go.
- My name is Francisco Ramon.
I wasn't always the esteemed engineer you see before you.
It was my love of science that allowed me to overcome my tough upbringing and join S.
T.
A.
R.
Labs, before our beautiful and handsome founder, Harrison Wells, stepped down.
I hope my love of science will inspire some among you to join the scientific community.
- Wow.
- Thanks.
Here's the thing.
I don't sound anything like that.
My love of science my love of science - Uh-oh.
- Myloveofscience.
Yeah, I'm gonna need you to take a look at that.
I can't do it [laughs.]
'Cause I have important things to do, so - Oh, wha oh, hey! Ugh! - Right now, so Guys, I gotta run an errand.
See ya later.
Where you going? [erratic buzzing.]
- Ah, hello you.
- Hey.
Am I in for another kidnapping? - Okay, I deserve that.
- [scoffs.]
No, um, I just came to check on you.
We haven't seen much of you since Christmas.
That's very sweet of you.
I'm doing well, thank you.
You know, what Savitar did forcing you to hurt people Savitar was controlling me, okay? As far as I'm concerned, my conscience is clear.
Really? Then why the Zolpidem? Are you having trouble sleeping? Why don't we stop playing games, Dr.
Snow, and you tell me what you actually came for rather than accusing me of having insomnia? [sighs.]
I actually need your help.
How can I help you? Well, you're the world's foremost specialist - on meta-humans - Yes, this much is true.
And I need you to help me get rid of my powers.
I've tried everything.
I've run every test blood, DNA and I can't reverse this.
I need to get rid of my powers before Before what? Before I hurt someone else the way I hurt you.
[tender music.]
I don't cure meta-humans.
I put them in prison.
You're on your own, I'm afraid.
[electronic beeping.]
[tense music.]
No, no, no, no.
[beeping intensifies.]
Please.
[beeping continues.]
- [beeping stops.]
- [sighs.]
[sighs.]
Okay.
Can I open my eyes yet please? Um, yeah, but just one second.
- Okay.
- Just, um yeah okay, open 'em.
[stammers.]
Um I know you wanted to unpack slowly, like a normal couple, but I don't know between our jobs and the S.
T.
A.
R.
Labs museum and do you hate it? Uh, n-no, no, I don't hate it.
You do.
I just I don't I just wanna give you the home that you deserve.
- I - Barry, you have.
I love our loft.
Look what I don't love is you not talking to me about these nightmares.
I don't know.
I mean, I've seen a lot of terrible things in my life.
The nightmares, they're just a part of me.
Yeah, but, Barry, I have been with you through all those terrible things.
This is different.
It feels different.
What are you not telling me? [phone buzzes.]
I'm sorry.
Oh, that's a robbery in progress.
That is a robbery in progress.
I'm sorry.
- Go.
- [whooshes.]
[pensive music.]
[sighs.]
[rifle humming and whirring.]
[glass shatters.]
[alarm blaring.]
[dramatic music.]
[whooshes.]
See, I'm living with someone now, so I can't have criminals constantly interrupting our alone time.
Flash.
Morillo was found guilty of grand theft and aggravated assault after he was caught by The Flash.
[rifle humming and whirring.]
[rifle zaps.]
[engine revving.]
[laughs.]
That gun.
I've never seen anything like that in my life.
- I want a gun like that.
- What happened out there? Your telemetry readings dropped precipitously.
- I don't know, but - [phone buzzes.]
It caught me off-guard.
I've gotta run an errand.
I'll be right back.
Okay, so we're up against a guy with a futuristic rifle that steals jewelry and looks like a pirate.
[gruffly.]
A pirate.
Right, then we shall call this scurvy lad boy the name of Plunder.
Plunder, agreed? Jared Morillo, aka Plunder Okay, aren't you supposed to be working on, like, - your museum, or something? - Aren't you supposed to be helping me, Francisco, with me hologram? Um, that's not my problem.
Yeah, I just wanna show you something.
Why do I feel like I'm walking into a trap? Anyway, I'm gonna get CCPD to monitor all the jewelry stores in the city.
This guys must be pretty full of himself, knowing he escaped The Flash, so ten to one, he'll be back.
- All right.
- When he is, we'll be ready for him, though, right, Barry? No, not we, Wally.
This you're still training.
Have you seen my times in the Speed Lab lately? - I'm almost as fast as you.
- Okay, this isn't about speed.
This is about gaining knowledge and experience, so please just trust me, all right? [sighs.]
Look, I am as overprotective a father as you can get, but I gotta be honest, Barry, I'm I agree with Wally.
I don't know, Joe.
Let's just see what else we can find on this guy before we let Wally loose.
Okay, well, remember, the best way to teach somebody something is to throw them in the deep end.
That's how I taught you how to swim.
That was I'm still mad about that.
You can swim now, can't you? Yeah.
Got your text.
Hi.
Come and take a seat.
Look, I I know I was rude yesterday.
Yeah, you were a world-class jerk.
Yeah, there is a reason.
Because you are a world-class jerk? Fair enough.
Listen, I've been trying really hard not to think about my alter ego, about what he did, and seeing you, it just it brought it all back.
[sighs.]
Look.
What Alchemy did was not your fault.
Yeah.
Tell that to Dave Frieman, Ben Edwards, Jorge Gonzales.
These men were part of the CCPD task force that Savitar murdered.
I should've died, not them.
Julian, what you're feeling, it's completely normal.
It's called survivor's guilt.
But it wasn't your fault, okay? You're a victim too.
I I tortured people and nearly killed my best friends.
I didn't ask for these powers, just like you didn't ask to be used by Savitar.
Yeah.
[sighs.]
I just don't know how to move forward.
Why don't you come join us at S.
T.
A.
R.
Labs? You can help Team Flash fight meta-humans.
- You're being serious? - Yeah.
Barry and the team, they'd be thrilled to have you.
I would be thrilled to have you.
Ah, I'll give it some thought.
Uh, thanks for coming.
[pensive music.]
Tell me why I'm in here fixing your hologram.
Well, I'm just so persuasive.
As a matter of fact, my partner on my Earth, Randolf, used to say, "Why, H.
R.
, you could convince a cowboy to buy dirt in a sandstorm.
" Cappuccino? Didn't you just have one of those? Oh, yeah.
Look, I gotta order more parts for this thing.
Yeah, no, go ahead.
Price is no object.
Mm.
- Hey.
- How's it going? You know, S.
T.
A.
R.
Labs museum, gift that keeps on giving, so - Okay.
- Barry, cappuccino.
- Hi, uh, no uh, good.
- Okay all right.
- Sorry.
- You know I'll double down.
- Yeah, no - Sure.
Um, I just actually wanted to ask you something - Mm-hmm.
- About your scientific, uh, - romance novels? - Oh, my novels, yeah, sure.
Please, ha have a seat, yeah.
Okay.
Ask any anything you want.
Any questions.
- Yep all right, cool.
- Yeah.
Um, well, I was just wondering if you've ever written about time travel.
But more specifically traveling to the future.
Oh, no, my best seller oh, hey, "The Future Ain't What It Used to Be" that was [sighing and murmuring.]
it was all about it was all about this guy who's actively trying to prevent his own murder.
Won the Nebula Award.
It's well-received.
- Wow.
- Yeah.
Um, so this character your character uh, was he able to change his future? More specifically, if he allowed certain events to occur naturally, was he only cementing the very timeline that resulted in a horrible event later? There were two schools of thought.
One faction one group of fans they believed, you know, the future's ever-changing.
You know, it's not fixed, and so you could make of the future anything you wish.
- Right.
- Another group of fans vehemently disagreed with it.
They said, "No, no, no.
"The future is fixed, and you can't change it no matter how hard you try.
" Mm-hmm.
Where do you come down? On a fixed or ever-changing future? Well, I think that a man often meets his destiny on the very road he takes to avoid it.
- Meaning? - Meaning the future is fixed.
- Yeah.
- Yo, there's a robbery at the Payson Hotel.
- Go.
- Yeah.
[helicopter rotor whirring.]
[dramatic music.]
Hey.
[rifle humming and whirring.]
Bring that chopper back.
[whooshes.]
You just couldn't resist another heist, huh? Oh, what's the fun in one and done? Avoiding a 15-year jail sentence in Iron Heights would've been nice, but you're forcing my hand.
I guess it's a little late for that now.
Eh, guess again.
[rifle zapping.]
[whooshes.]
[groans.]
Barry, behind you! [bullets whooshing.]
[whooshes.]
I can't shake these things, Cisco.
- Shake faster.
- Huh? He means phase.
[whooshing.]
[bullets thudding.]
[grunting.]
Barry, what are you waiting for? After he was caught by The Flash [rifle beeping.]
[whooshes.]
- [rifle humming and whirring.]
- Watch out! [whooshes.]
[whispers.]
No, Wally.
[laughing.]
I caught that whole thing, man.
Anything you wanna say to camera? - Oh, for real? - [laughs.]
Uh, what up, Central City? The name's Kid Flash.
[laughs.]
[groans.]
Wally, congratulations.
- That was amazing.
- Great job, Wally.
- Kid Flash! Let 'em know.
- Whoo! - [laughs.]
- That's how it's done.
We just deposited Plunder in Iron Heights.
- Yes, you did.
- His real name is Jared Morillo.
Turns out he's wanted for a string of robberies from here to Star City.
Wally, what was that? I mean, you're supposed to be shadowing me.
Wait, you're mad at me? I thought Observe and learn.
That's it.
- Whoa.
- That's it! Barry, ease up.
Wally just saved your life.
I'm sorry, Wally, but if you can't learn to follow orders, this deal between us, it's over.
[clapping.]
Okay.
Who's ready for oh, man.
Wallace, B.
A.
, you're supposed to be dressed for the museum opening.
H.
R.
, we're speedsters.
We have time.
- Nobody likes a braggart.
- Yeah, but we were actually talking about something important before you showed up, - so - You Okay, you clean up well Thank you.
I like the way you dress.
Guys, this is a very, very big deal for all of us.
Come on! Don't be late to the part-ay! Wally.
[sighs.]
Look, I'm gonna go over to CCPD and fill out this Morillo paperwork.
Whatever the reasoning you have, for ragging on Wally, - please get over it.
- Mm.
[soft music.]
[balloon sputtering.]
Caitlin, where is everybody? Nobody's here.
No one showed up.
Ah! A custom our first customers! Welcome.
Welcome to the grand S.
T.
A.
R.
Labs museum opening, and today, for your ticket price of admission today only you also get a free steaming cup of joe.
- Ticket price? - Yep.
I thought this museum was free.
Oh, did you find us through social media? 'Cause Welcome welcome - Olga! - Da.
The thing it's doing the thing.
Folks, no wait, do oh! Wait no, wait, half-price! Half! Quarter [sighs.]
I'll make a new pot of coffee.
- Don't bother.
- No one's coming.
This isn't working.
I don't know why.
You see this? Do you see what you've done, H.
R.
? You have distracted us for months, so what? So that you could feel useful? You're not useful.
This museum isn't useful.
You know what? - That's mean.
- Yeah, well, I guess I learned that from your doppelganger, and at least he contributed something.
Uh, guys, there's another customer.
Hey, welcome to S ah, it's Julius, you guys.
What are you doing here? Well, uh, I've given it some thought, and I'd like to accept your invitation.
- [clears throat.]
- Invitation for what? - [sighs.]
- Did you ask Julian to join Team S.
T.
A.
R.
Labs? I know, he's an acquired taste, but Yeah, well, he is Dr.
Alchemy, the big bad's little bad, so Yeah, he he gave Wally his powers.
- That, I don't mind.
- Guys, I need his help.
I'm sorry, Cisco, but these cuffs, they aren't cutting it.
Every night, when I go to bed, I'm afraid that I'm gonna wake up be her.
Maybe Julian can think of something that we haven't.
[pensive music.]
Barry when your mom was murdered, Joe and Iris, they took you in.
Cisco, when Dante died, I slept on your couch to keep you company.
The things we see, the things that we face no one can do this alone.
Trying is the biggest mistake that you can make.
He hasn't told anyone that Barry's The Flash.
I think we can give him a chance.
Tell Julian we'll think about it, all right? - Iris - Hey.
I need to show you something.
[whirring and clicking.]
- I forgot this place existed.
- Yeah.
The original Wells used to call it his time vault.
I've been coming down here a lot lately.
I guess I've become as obsessed with the future as he once was.
[electronic whirring.]
[melancholy music.]
After Flashpoint happened, this article reappeared.
"Flash Missing Vanishes In Crisis.
" Julie Greer, April 25, 2024.
I d The byline used to read "Iris West-Allen.
" The future's changed.
So maybe I quit my job.
[laughs.]
Yeah, that's what I'd hoped at first too, or something, but I [sighs.]
Look, Iris, I'm sorry I didn't tell you this sooner.
When I threw the Philosopher's Stone into the Speed Force, I accidentally ran to the future.
I saw Savitar murder you.
And I saw myself, and I I wasn't fast enough to save you.
Barry, no I mean, we We destroyed the Stone.
Savitar's gone, so Maybe not.
I I don't know.
I don't know.
Maybe not.
Is that why you keep having nightmares? You keep seeing me? So what does this have to do with Plunder? He was already in jail in the future, so I don't know.
I thought if I didn't catch him, that I could stop the timeline from cementing.
I could prevent your death.
I don't know.
Barry, you cannot stop protecting the city to save me.
Why? Um, why not? I'm sorry.
Uh, one robber goes free.
It's that versus your life.
Joe would want me to make the exact same choice, Iris.
He [whispers.]
Iris.
- How long? - How long what? How long until it happens? - This is not gonna happen.
- [sobs.]
Hey, look at me.
This is not gonna happen.
Jay said that your death is just one possible future, okay? So that gives us four months to figure out how to stop Savitar.
I swear, on both my parents' lives, I will protect you.
[sniffles.]
We can't do this alone, Barry.
[sobbing.]
Hey, guys, um Iris and I, um we have something we need to tell you.
So you're saying that four months from now, - Savitar will - Kill me.
Possi possibly.
It's okay.
Guys, I am okay.
Really.
- How are you gonna tell Dad? - I'm not.
Iris, he needs to know.
I agree with Wallace.
Joe needs to know.
No, guys, this news would blind him, okay? We all saw how crazy he went when Wally was in danger.
Imagine if he knew that Savitar was trying to kill me.
He would go after Savitar himself.
Wally The future isn't set.
There's still hope.
But, Barry, the future, it's harder to change than you can imagine.
The future wants to happen.
The way it was explained to me was, imagine if you had a row of dominos, okay? Now, those dominos are all set up, and it it's Here.
So convenient yeah uh, Barry, if you wou [whooshes.]
[gasps.]
So imagine, okay, domino each domino is a moment in time.
One moment in time leads to the next, so as one domino falls, it hits the next, it hits the next, and the next, and the next, and so on, leading to the inevitable conclusion, and that is [dominos clacking.]
The future.
And what happens if we alter certain events? Well, you you could conceivably change where you end up, but but, Barry, if you would [whooshes.]
So you could change the future, but you'd have to be very careful about which events you alter.
[dominos clacking.]
We need to figure out everything that happens leading up to Iris's death.
Wait, when I saw the future, there was a news scroll on TV.
I mean, that could offer us some clues.
Absolutely.
I think I can help with that.
Hang on, McFly.
About to vibe you back to the future.
Can you pass me the multi-meter please? Yeah.
- The multi-meter.
- Yep.
- The multi-meter? - Yeah.
I'm better with the tools of the scribe.
There it is.
You sure your buddy Randolf back home didn't just solve that cryptogram to get rid of you? Well, perhaps he did.
Look, I came to this Earth seeking redemption, but I realize now, you're right.
Greatness isn't in the cards for me.
[sighs.]
Okay.
So you failed.
So nobody came to your opening.
Don't end it like this.
Greatness takes time and you know this.
If a string is in a knot, patience will untie it.
Patience can do lots of things.
Have you ever tried it? [reflective music.]
All right.
All right, guys.
You ready? - Yeah.
- Yeah, we're ready.
The machine's souped up and ready to go.
It's gonna be a hell of a vibe.
All you have to do is just sit back, relax or, well, try to relax and concentrate, really focus on the exact date in the future that you traveled to.
Yep.
May 23, 2017.
Barry, whatever happens, I am right here waiting for you, okay? I know.
- Crank it.
- Three, two, one.
[dramatic music.]
What do you see? An empty street.
A bus stop.
[whooshing.]
The me from Christmas just came out of the Speed Force.
[eerie music.]
In other legal news, the highly publicized trial He's watching the news report.
Aka Plunder, comes to a close.
Morillo was found guilty of grand theft and aggravated assault These are the headlines, right? Headlines.
Yeah you know what? Call call 'em out.
I'll write 'em down.
[sighs.]
Um "Music Meister gets six-figure book deal.
" "Luigi's opens after murder.
" "Joe West honored at City Hall.
" Good for you, Joe.
"Killer" What does it say? [sighs.]
"Killer Frost still at large.
" "S.
T.
A.
R.
Labs museum closes.
" "City still recovering following gorilla attack.
" Don't! [dramatic music.]
Savitar has Iris.
Don't do this.
[distorted.]
Now finally, I am free of you.
Look, up on the roof.
Barry I love you.
Hey, no, don't say that, all right? H.
R.
is here.
Me? Are you sure? - Yeah, you weren't here before.
- Future's changed since then.
[gasps.]
[distorted.]
You lose, Barry.
No! [whooshes.]
[sobbing.]
Just get us out of here.
[buzzing and warbling.]
You had a rifle pointed at Savitar.
Somehow telling you about Iris's death, it changed the future.
I was wrong, you were right.
Your theory is correct then.
Guys, my future isn't the only one that we need to change.
No, the these headlines, though, they they tell us what happens in the future where Caitlin becomes Killer Frost and Iris dies.
If we can change the headlines, that means we can change the future.
That's right.
Challenge accepted.
[whooshes.]
Dad's upstairs.
We've been looking for you.
What happened? Plunder escaped.
Morillo assaulted two guards on his way out of Iron Heights.
Any idea where he might strike next? Well, we've got it narrowed down to 35 jewelry stores and 48 hotels in Central City, so What about banks? Auction houses? He was caught by The Flash, robbing the Central City Museum earlier this year.
[murmurs indistinctly.]
Central City Museum.
- That's where he is.
- Where'd you get that? Um, isn't there a jewelry exhibit there right now? - Yeah.
- Uh-huh, with diamonds big ones, so it makes sense.
- Let's suit up.
- I don't understand.
Come here.
I was a dick yesterday, Wally.
It wasn't about you.
I was scared when you caught Plunder.
I didn't know what it meant for Iris's future.
You're ready, far more ready than I was when I started.
What do you say? - I'm in.
- All right.
[dramatic music.]
- [engine turns over and revs.]
- [whoosh.]
Plunder, my man.
Where do you think you're going? Right through you.
[rifle whirs and zaps.]
[zapping.]
[engine revving, tires squealing.]
[rifle whirring.]
[zap.]
- [zap.]
- [grunts.]
- You all right? - I'm good, dude.
You can have this one.
No, Wally.
This one has to be you.
Why? Because if you take down Plunder, the news report that says that I captured him in the future, it's wrong.
We can prove that we can alter the future here and now.
So that's why you sent me out here.
Hey, I sent you out here because you're a hero.
Iris needs a hero right now, Wally.
[sizzling.]
[whooshes.]
[engine revving.]
They are running.
[rifle whirring.]
[zapping.]
[explosions booming.]
Wally, take your next left.
The streets meet up in about two miles.
If you time it just right, - you'll be able to blindside him.
- Got it.
[whooshing.]
[motorcycle crashes.]
[whooshes.]
[growling.]
crowd: Kid Flash! Kid Flash! Kid Flash! Kid Flash! Do you hear that? They're saying your name.
Crowd: Kid Flash! Kid Flash! Kid Flash! Kid Flash! Kid Flash! Kid Flash! Kid Flash! Kid Flash! Kid Flash! Kid Flash! Kid Flash! Today's top story, Jared Morillo, aka Plunder, is back in police custody after attempting to rob the Central City Museum.
Morillo was apprehended by a new speedster, who goes by the name Kid Flash.
Well, that settles it.
I think you're officially Kid Flash now.
- Yeah, it's growing on me.
- [laughs.]
And this rifle is growing on me.
Heat-seeking bullets are just the beginning of what this bad boy can do.
How did you end up with Plunder's rifle? Barry stole it for me.
Right, Barr? - Mm-hmm.
- Oh, so you plundered Plunder? I had to do something while Wally was cuffing him.
Thanks to you, we changed the future.
If we can change one of these events, we can change 'em all.
Nothing is set in stone.
[soft music.]
We'll see you guys tonight.
- Can't wait.
- Yeah.
[indistinct chatter.]
I called the local elementary school, and gave the principal discounted tickets.
I figured, hey, you know, if the kids love it, they'll tell their parents, and, well, the rest writes itself.
You, Francisco are brilliant.
Of course, science is what will inspire these children - not just The Flash.
- [gasps.]
Check it out.

I wasn't always the esteemed engineer you see before you, but after years of hard work and studying, I joined S.

- I hope my love of science - Should we go talk to him? Will inspire some among you to join the scientific community as we strive to reach a new age for humanity.
Thank you.
You're very welcome.
[pop music playing.]
Okay, the quiche is in the oven; the beer and wine are in the fridge; and the candles are on the table.
- Oh, my God.
Oh, my God.
- What? I forgot the ice.
[whooshes.]
Instant party save.
Baby, you've never been sexier.
I know.
Hey, Iris.
How are you doing? For real, are you okay? - Yeah, I'm fine.
- Because if you're not fine, you can talk to me.
You know that, right? I know.
[doorbell rings.]
- All right.
- [laughing.]
- You ready? - Yeah.
- All right.
- [giggles.]

That's like a standard housewarming gift, right? - Yes, perfect.

Careful, she bites.

So we all talked it over, and welcome to the team.
You being serious? - Yeah.

Yeah, it's so exciting.
I mean, my last team, they were all murdered by Savitar, so We need to work on your small talk skills.
Yeah, sure.
Just wanted to be upfront.
- Come on in.

- You want a drink? - Uh, yeah, I'd love one.
- Thanks.
Cheers.
- Is this for me? - Oh, yeah.
- All right.
This place is incredible, Barr.
Thank you.
I have to admit, I miss you around the house.
- Yeah? - But Wally over there keeps me plenty occupied.
Yeah, um, I already talked to Wally, but I'm sorry about yesterday.
You were right.
He's really important to this team.
He's a real hero, Joe.
Both of my sons are heroes.
Julian and I were talking about your battery problem with your cuffs.
Uh, we decided we'd invest in an alternate accessory.
Voilà.
Every time you go outside, solar energy will recharge it.
Guys, this means so much to me.
Thank you.
Of course.
[soft music.]
[whispers.]
Thank you.
- Oh, wow.
- Ta-da! [glass clinking.]
Hey, guys.
I asked myself to say a few words, um, on this occasion.
A home, you know, it's more than bricks and mortar and a turtle.
It's a it's a feeling.
It's a feeling of belonging, isn't it? Of of love, of course uh, hope for the future.
I don't know if I have ever met two people who are more suited to one another than you two.
- To Barry and Iris.
- Barry and Iris.
all: To Barry and Iris.
- To us.
- To us.
[glasses clinking.]
[eerie music.]
[warbling and whooshing.]
[ominous music.]
