The Flash (2014) s04e04 Episode Script

Elongated Journey Into Night

1 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.
But I became lost in time.
It took everything in my friends' power to bring me back, and in doing so our world was opened up to new threats.
And I'm the only one fast enough to stop them.
I am the Flash.
Previously, on "The Flash" Each of these heat scans indicates a human body.
12 markers, 12 metas.
They identified the targets sooner than we planned.
Perhaps.
There's nothing within miles of here capable of even creating dark matter.
There was three weeks ago.
This is where I came out of the Speed Force.
And a wave of dark matter washed out with you.
You think the guy behind the samurai robot Samuroid.
He wanted us to create a busload of metas? I think it's all connected.
Hello, gorgeous.
You ready to get your schmoopy on? Joe, I'm pregnant.
[LEE WILLIAMS & CYMBAL'S "I NEED YOU BABY"] I've been lonely For such a long, long time I've been lonely Look, I was thinking No, no.
Less thinking, more kissing.
[MOANS] [MOANS] Okay, but hold on a minute.
This thing we got going on, this is real good.
It's okay.
What? No, I'm just kidding.
It's better than okay.
Yeah, that's right.
It's better than okay.
But because of that, I think we're at a place in our relationship where the guy says to his girl those three magic words.
What what three words? What's your name? Um, oh.
Well, that is technically four words.
Mmm, actually, technically it's three words 'cause contractions are one word and that's how grammar works.
That's not the point, though.
What's your name? Gypsy.
- My name is Gypsy.
- For real? So, you were born, and somebody was just like, "I'm gonna name you Gypsy?" Gypsy is what I like to be called.
It is mysterious.
And it's moody.
Hmm.
Moody's right.
All right.
I'm gonna go to the bathroom.
And when I get back, you'd better stop asking me my real name.
And be wearing less clothes.
I don't need to know your name.
Mmm, this girl, she 'bout to rock your world [RUMBLING] You're a dead man.
[GRUNTING] [DRAMATIC MUSIC] Those are collectibles.
Aah.
[GRUNTS] [BOTH GRUNTING] Who are you? Daddy? [LAUGHS] Pleased to meet you, sir.
[LAUGHS] Is he gonna put me down? [CAMERA SHUTTERS CLICKING] You know, some of you may not realize, but before I was mayor, I was a cop in this very precinct.
And it's because of these men and women every family in Central City can sleep comfortably at night.
What's happening? Mayor Bellows is on his reelection campaign.
Detective Joe West.
Keep up the good work.
What do you say, Joe? [QUIRKY MUSIC] I'll do that.
And that's why he's not a politician.
I hate that.
Yeah? Thought about running against him? Can't you picture yourself shaking hands and kissing babies? What? Ain't nobody talking about babies.
You said you had a lead on this meta bus situation.
Yeah, I do.
Come here.
Fellow for Bellows! [APPLAUSE] You took the photos down from your mother's case.
Yeah, well, the case was solved.
This one isn't.
We got these two.
Kilgore and Hazard.
But that still leaves ten meta-humans that were created when I came out of the Speed Force.
How hard can it be to track down ten bus passengers? Well, according to the Department of Transportation, over 900 people rode that bus that day.
What about the bus driver? That's where things get more interesting.
He's dead.
Drowned in his own bathtub.
That's not too suspicious.
Harry said it was all connected.
I think he's right.
I mean, the Samuroid pushing you guys to bring me back, me not coming out of the place you thought I would, the bus being in the exact right place to be hit by dark matter It was planned.
Yeah.
By somebody smart.
We're pretty smart.
Well, I think so.
Okay, let's look closer into the bus driver's death.
It may give us a lead.
I'll have Iris pull up the autopsy report from the coroner's office.
Sounds good.
What? I don't know.
This morning, you're, like glowing.
What do you mean, "glowing?" I just mean, like, you got, like, a warmth about you.
Like a Lite-Brite.
There's no warmth.
No glow.
And I ain't no damn Lite-Brite.
You're wasting time.
S.
T.
A.
R.
Labs.
Glowing and irritable.
[CALM MUSIC] How's Cecile? Fine.
The same.
I mean, nothing's changed.
If something changes, I'll let you know.
All right.
[ELEVATOR CHIMES] This facility is poorly guarded.
Clearly.
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey.
Okay.
Power down, buckaroo.
Oh, good.
You're both here.
Cisco, who is this? This is Breacher.
AKA Gypsy's father.
Oh.
Yeah, I, um, can see the resemblance.
There is no resemblance.
So, you know how Gypsy's kind of a big deal collector on Earth-19? Well, her boss is her dad Who decided to pay us a little surprise visit at the perfect time.
Which is why I decided to show him around where I work.
- You know? - I'm Barry Allen.
Cisco's personal assistant.
- His what? - And he is the best personal assistant I've ever had.
He stays late, starts early.
One day, I'll be working for him.
What are you doing? I wanted to impress him, and now I can't stop.
Joe West.
A fellow law man.
You, I can respect.
And Harry Wells back there.
You look like someone I once sent my daughter to kill.
I get that a lot.
Uh, I thought maybe someone would want to give him the, uh, the old look-see.
Great idea.
Um, Allen, Detective West, why don't you give Gypsy's father here the nickel tour of the facilities? Joe.
I've had to pee for, like, three hours.
What is wrong with you? Have you seen his face? The guy's killed people with that face.
I'm not even joking.
Gypsy said that - literally happened.
- You want his approval, right? Yes, I want his approval.
He's my girlfriend's father.
Of course.
Cisco, listen.
You're a fine, upstanding, smart, well-groomed young man.
Any father would be happy to have you date his daughter, except me.
Can't date my daughter, all right? Can't date Jesse.
Jesse's off limits.
Went for the compliment, did not stick the landing.
Just take him for coffee, okay? Go for coffee, get to know him a little bit better.
I bet that you'll be pleasantly surprised at how much you have in common, right? You both have the same powers.
You're breachers.
You have ridiculous hair.
He has ridiculous hair.
Okay, but And you both love Gypsy.
Are you actually giving me decent relationship advice - right now? - I am.
You'll be fine.
I don't wanna be here anymore.
And we're leaving.
[QUIRKY MUSIC] Have fun storming the castle.
Why is the scariest person I've ever seen roaming our halls? - BOTH: Cisco.
- Oh.
Okay, so, I've got the coroner's report for the death of the bus driver, but it doesn't seem like there's any signs of foul play.
Aside from him being the one guy that could have told us who else was on that bus.
They logged his personal effects, let's see Credit cards, cash, receipts, um Wait, go back.
- Ralph Dibny.
- I'll be damned.
Who is Ralph Dibny? He used to be a cop.
Dirty cop.
He got kicked off the force.
For what? It's a long story.
[TENSE MUSIC] - That's him.
- Oh.
He's handsome in a square-jawed Oliver Queen kind of way.
For real? Babe, you know I've only got eyes for you.
The I.
O.
U.
is dated the same day that I came out of the Speed Force.
You think Dibny was on the bus that day? Maybe he's a meta-human now? Let's pay him a visit.
Hey.
You seem something.
What's up with you and this Ralph guy? It's like Joe said.
It's a long story.
Oliver Queen is hot.
Amen, hallelujah.
I promised there wasn't a single case I couldn't crack.
And a promise made is a promise kept.
Dibny detects.
Your husband didn't die in that plane crash, Mrs.
Broome.
He didn't? Then where is he? Well, that brings us to the difficult part.
Turns out he got remarried and moved to Minnesota.
Has two kids now.
Twins.
[CHUCKLES] Twins in the twin cities.
[CRYING] Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh.
Hey, hey, hey.
No, no, no, no, no.
Don't.
Don't cry for that jerk.
He doesn't deserve it.
The sun still shines.
The birds, they still chirp.
Chirp, chirp.
Mrs.
Broome, you are a very attractive woman, and you will find someone else.
Someone who will hold you.
Someone who will wipe away those tears.
Do you like shrimp? - [SLAP] - Ow! Uh This is definitely his place.
[KNOCKING] Reconsidered, huh? - Ralph.
- Joe West.
[DARK MUSIC] Barry Allen.
Been a long time, rookie.
Well, I'm not a rookie anymore, Dibny.
You look healthy.
Yeah.
Got the spare tire out of the trunk.
It happens.
Might even happen to you, too, one day, Slim Jim.
So what brings you boys to Casa de Dibny? Were you on the 405 bus four weeks ago around noon? That's a very specific question.
We found your I.
O.
U.
from the deceased bus driver's personal effects.
Deceased? Hey.
That's one less "U" I owe.
What's it to you two? It's a simple question.
Why don't you just answer it? You walk into my office after five years like nothing ever happened, and ask me for a favor? I smell a mystery.
It's not a favor.
It's information.
And how much is this information worth? Are you shaking us down? I know something you don't.
And you need to know it badly, otherwise you'd never swallow your pride and face me after what you did.
After what I did? Ralph.
The people on that bus were exposed to a dangerous substance.
Dangerous? Dangerous like what? Like Ebola? Were you on the bus? No.
Okay.
Let's go.
Hey, I heard you shacked up with that hot D.
A.
She got a sister? Okay.
Good luck.
All the best.
[DRAMATIC MUSIC] [KNOCKING] So, what's it worth? Ah, crap.
[SCREAMING] Guys, you don't want to do this! I don't know what you want.
Let's talk about this.
Put me down.
- BOTH: Whoa! - Don't put me down! Don't put me down! [FLESH STRETCHING] [WHIMPERING] That guy hasn't changed a bit.
You really expect him to? Whoa! I guess he was on that bus.
[HUMMING] [SCREAMS] [GROANING] [ALL SHOUTING] Hey, guys? What the hell? Yeah, yeah, well, you're welcome.
What happened to me? Breathe, okay? - I am breathing.
- Okay.
Clearly this guy is a bus meta.
This is interesting.
The dark matter has polymerized Dibny's cells.
What the hell is dark matter, and why is it in my cells? You're saying the walls of every cell - in his body have elasticized? - I'm saying they formed an unbreakable bond at the atomic level.
Now you can stretch these cells and stretch these cells.
- Like Silly Putty.
- Like Silly Putty.
I'm Silly Putty? BOTH: No.
Kinda.
I'm Silly Putty? Ralph.
Who were the guys on the roof? Is that really the issue right now? Look at me! Allen, you and your S.
T.
A.
R.
Labs nerds better put me back together.
Get your hands off me.
We're trying to help you.
- You're not trying to help me.
- Shut up.
[ALL SHOUTING] Come on! Oh, come on! You can do this later.
I just need a sample of blood.
- [GASPS] - Whoa.
[GASPS] Ow! [SNEEZES] Oh, is that my face? [VOMITS] [GROANS] Four years seeing this stuff, I finally puked.
[ROCK MUSIC PLAYING] Can I plug in? Daddy.
I know you love me, and I love you.
I really like Cisco, and I need you two to get along.
So do you think that you can try to do that? I'll do anything for you, petal.
Ah, three coffees.
How about you, huh? Ready for some hot java? We don't have coffee on my Earth.
Crops were destroyed.
My world was attacked Invaded by the worst, most evil creatures in the multiverse.
I'll never drink coffee again.
- Two for me.
- It's okay.
Daddy, why don't I get you a tea? Like a relaxing tea? - Yeah.
- Please.
- Okay.
- Thanks.
Pop a squat.
Uh I know from a friend Who is also a father How important his daughter is to him.
And I just wanted to let you know how important your daughter is to me.
And that after you and I get to know each other a little, maybe we might find that we're not so different.
I'm going to hunt you.
[CHOKING] You're not worthy of her.
Isn't that for her to decide? Ten.
Also, I could have sworn you said, uh, you were gonna hunt me.
What, like a deer? I have hunted some of the worst breach criminals in history.
Marla the Dark Lord.
Soolunga of Sheerdra.
The Sand People of Scar.
You will be easy prey.
Nine.
Listen, I have tried to be polite with you, but this is going a little too far.
I get that you're overprotective Eight.
- Are you counting? - For the next 24 hours, I will be hunting you throughout this city.
We will not use our powers.
But when it's over, my daughter will be free of you.
Seven.
Do you do this with all her boyfriends? I hunted her last one, yes.
Where is he now? I don't know.
- He got away.
- I don't know where you go when you die.
Five.
You just skipped six.
I know.
Four.
And don't try to breach.
[CHUCKLES] I'll know it if you do.
You can't hide from me.
So if I were you, I would start running, Cisky.
[DRAMATIC MUSIC] [LAUGHS] Three, two, one.
Damn.
He's hunting him.
I finally calmed him down.
Amazing what 50 milligrams of Lorazepam can do when you get it in aerosol form.
Is there anything you can do to put him back together? Please, my stomach can't take much more.
I think I could stabilize his cells if I had a sample of his DNA from prior to when he was exposed to the dark matter on the bus.
Why? So he can go out and start hurting people, like our other friends here? I think we should lock him up in the Pipeline.
He hasn't done anything.
Yet.
Trust me.
I know this guy.
He's a bad guy.
Barry, I took an oath to help people.
I'm a doctor.
I can't just leave him in there like spaghetti.
Villains? Yeah.
Every person that was on that bus is now 1,000 times more dangerous than they were before.
Dibny included.
- What if he's changed? - People don't change.
- I did.
- When I became Killer Frost, you still believed in me.
You're a good person.
He's not.
Barry, how about you and I go back to Dibny's office? Find a DNA sample for Caitlin? Dad, you go back to CCPD, see what you can dig up on Dibny? Yes, boss.
[RUMBLING] Looks like someone tossed this place.
Yeah.
Probably the same guys that hung Dibny off the roof.
Why do you think? I dunno.
Guy like that probably has a long list of people that wanna toss him off rooftops.
- Why do you want to? - [CHUCKLES] No, seriously.
What happened between the two of you? It was one of my first cases when I was a junior CSI.
Dibny was the lead detective.
What case? A woman named Judy Gimlin was stabbed to death.
Her husband, Reagan, was the prime suspect.
But there was no evidence Nothing to tie him to the crime scene.
And then, Dibny miraculously found a knife with the husband's fingerprints.
Case closed.
Dibny was a hero.
I don't know, maybe because my mom was stabbed, I wanted to be sure.
So I analyzed the knife.
The serrations on the blade did not match the wound on the vic.
So Dibny planted the knife.
Yep.
And then he lied about it.
Under oath.
- And you busted him? - I mean, he didn't just bend the rules, Iris.
He committed perjury Evidence tampering.
He was thrown off the force.
Point is, he was crooked then.
He's crooked now.
Hey, how much DNA do you think Caitlin needs? Not much.
Okay.
Oh, think this will work? [CHUCKLES] - [BEEPING] - Barry! [WHOOSHING] [DRAMATIC MUSIC] I guess someone hates him more than you do.
And that's what it feels like to vibrate through solid matter.
I'm just glad you two weren't hurt.
No thanks to your new buddy in there.
He's not my buddy.
He's my patient.
Caitlin, I just don't understand why you're defending him.
Because I know what it's like to suddenly find yourself with extraordinary powers and be totally freaked out by it.
And so do you, for that matter.
You and I both woke up in this lab once knowing that our lives would never be the same.
So how about you give the guy a little sympathy? - Hey.
- Guys.
I pulled the LUDS on Dibny's phone.
There were 15 phone calls between him and the Mayor's office.
What is Mayor Bellows doing talking to Ralph Dibny? [SCOFFS] [TENSE MUSIC] Oh, look.
It's my good buddy Barry Allen.
Someone just blew up your office.
Sweet.
Insurance claim.
My fiancee and I almost died.
You landed West's daughter? Wow.
Everything's coming up Allen.
The job.
The girl.
Who's trying to kill you, Dibny? Do you know how many people I have pissed off in the last five years? Angry husbands.
Angry wives.
Not exactly dealing with high society taking photos of cheating spouses.
Then why are you talking to the Mayor? Who says I am? Your phone records.
Did did you get a warrant for that? 'Cause I know you're all by-the-book.
What's your business with Mayor Bellows? Nothing.
Just calling to tell him what a swell job I think he's doing.
15 times? 12 of those were butt dials.
All right, look, whatever.
Maybe we'll go talk to the Mayor ourselves.
You know, he's a huge fan of Joe's.
Yeah, you go do that.
All right.
I'm gonna stay here.
Stretch my legs.
Ramon, do you think it's wise to be sneaking around a technologically weaponized facility? It's a lot safer than what I'm up against out there, so Coffee didn't go well, I take it? Well, Gypsy's dad wants to hunt me for 24 hours to see if I'm worthy of his daughter No powers so, don't know what the hell I'm supposed to do - about that.
- Fight back.
I swear, it's like you're trying to listen, but you just nod while you're thinking of something else.
- You're doing it right now.
- Fight back.
Ramon, what did you say? You said no powers? Yeah, go ahead.
Well, in addition to being Vibe, you have another superpower You're smart in here.
All right? Outwardly, you're weak.
All right? Too much.
But use your outwardly weak appearance to your advantage.
He's gonna anticipate a pathetic target.
Well, you're pathetic.
You're pathetic.
You're weak.
Not helping, just hurting.
All I'm saying is, set a trap, okay? Beat him at his own game.
Set a trap.
- Set a trap.
- That's right, a trap.
A trap, I can do.
'Cause he may be the Predator, but I'm the Schwarzenegger.
Where is he? [INTENSE MUSIC] He was here.
Uh, he went that way.
[DOOR OPENS] I farted.
I'm not sure everything's still where it's supposed to be down there.
- Drink this.
- What is it? I don't just drink stuff.
My body is a temple.
Clearly.
Drink it.
I wanna know what it is.
It's 17% alcohol.
You should have lead with that, sister.
[GULPS] Ugh! What was that? It's a serum of sulfur, zinc oxide, and steric acid to cross-link your polymerized cells.
In English.
It's gonna fix you.
[GROANS] [GASPS] Oh.
You did it.
I'm cured.
Well, not cured.
All I did was introduce a stabilizing enzyme to reset your body to default shape through vulcanization.
It's like muscle memory.
Muscle memory, huh? Huh.
How far back memory, you think? I don't know.
Uh, think about the shape you want to be and just be it.
[QUIRKY MUSIC] I'm back.
I look like a Hemsworth.
Joseph.
Thank you for meeting us.
Quick stop on my way to a hospital ribbon cutting.
No problem.
What's with you? You're glowing.
- N-no, I'm not.
- You are.
Well, how can I help you, gentlemen? I've got a lot on my schedule today.
Ah, we won't take up much of your time, Mr.
Mayor.
Uh, do you know a man named Ralph Dibny? Doesn't ring a bell.
Who is he? Well, he's a former cop turned private investigator.
- I don't think so.
- Really? He called your office over a dozen times.
Oh, I'm gonna have to check with my secretary.
[TENSE MUSIC] Anthony, you used to be a cop.
We're not talking to the mayor, here.
It's three cops talking.
Whatever cops say to each other, they don't say to anybody else.
What's going on with you and Dibny? I, uh - Made a mistake.
- A mistake? You mean like the kind of mistake you make with a woman who's not your wife? It was only that one time, Joe.
I regretted it the moment I did it, and I broke it off right away.
And then Dibny shows up, and he's got pictures of us.
And he threatens to show them to my wife unless I pay him.
- How much? - Not enough.
All those phone calls, it was him negotiating for a bigger price.
I love my family, Joe.
Just let me pay him, and I'll be done with it.
No, Mr.
Mayor, you're not gonna have to do that.
We're gonna take care of it.
Joe, Barry.
Thank you.
Mm-hmm.
So much for Dibny changing.
Dibny's alive and talking.
Find him.
I want those pictures and his head.
And the cops? What do I care about cops? Waste 'em.
Your vitals are fantastic.
Yeah.
You're blackmailing the Mayor? Classic Barry Allen.
Enters room and accuses wildly.
We know about the photos, Ralph.
Bellows told us everything.
Hey, I'm not the one who told him to step out on his wife.
That's your defense? It's his fault that you're extorting him? Isn't that a little easy for you to say? Your fancy lab, your good job, and your hot girlfriend? People like me are just trying to get from one bill to the next.
And I wouldn't have to be living like that if you hadn't cost me my job.
You got yourself fired.
You tampered with evidence.
You framed that guy.
Because he was guilty.
And he was gonna get away with killing his wife, and then you let him go.
I was a good cop.
I was a good detective.
I lost everything.
[SOLEMN MUSIC] Mayor's got plenty of money.
He can afford to spare a little.
Consider it the pension you cost me.
Good people don't destroy lives and call it noble.
You were dirty then.
You're dirty now.
Live with that.
You're not going anywhere.
Get off me.
[GARBLED] Are you kidding me? [GRUNTS] Thanks for ruining my life twice, Allen.
Cisky.
Show yourself.
No one can avoid me forever.
I'm not going to.
[WEAPON CLICKS] Are you kidding me? Say good-bye, my little enemy.
[SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC] [GRUNTS] What the Sheol? Guess who's got a hologram? Ho, ho, ho.
Bet you're wondering what this is.
This is an anti-vibrational force field with an oscillating power grid.
It's good enough for the Reverse-Flash, good enough for you.
So you might as well wave your white flag, 'cause you aren't getting out of this thing until the clock strikes Cisco's victory.
Oh, victory.
Feels good.
I pulled this from the body of an Earth-48 hunter-killer.
You can't trap a trapper.
- [GRUNTS] - [STATIC] [DOORBELL RINGS] [SIGHS] [MELLOW POP MUSIC PLAYING] [SIGHS] I just needed to cool off.
I figured.
Dibny seemed to have gotten under your skin.
Why is it so important to you that he be the bad guy? When I first started at CCPD, all I cared about was the rules.
But, you know, these last few years, we've locked up meta-humans without a trial.
Played with time and space, messed with other worlds.
Yeah, but what does that have to do with Dibny? Just that everything that we've done we did because we were trying to help people.
Keep them safe.
Hm.
Is that all Dibny was trying to do back then? Good people don't destroy lives and call it noble.
Did I make a mistake back then? Did I cost a good man his life? I don't know, Bare.
He did break the law Cross the line.
But you didn't make him do that.
And you didn't make him blackmail the Mayor.
But, maybe Caitlin was right.
Everyone who's gone through what you and her and now Dibny's gone through Maybe he deserves a second chance.
[DOORBELL RINGS] I got it.
Allen.
Detective West.
Aren't you two on the Mayor's detail? Sorry to bother you at home, but dispatch just radioed.
Captain Singh needs you down at station ASAP.
All right, let me get my jacket.
- Bare! - [GUN SHOTS] [DRAMATIC MUSIC] That never gets old.
Those two work or the Mayor.
They just tried to kill us.
Dibny's next.
Cisky, Cisky, Cisky.
Cisky.
Cisky.
Come out.
Come out and meet your end.
[YAWNS] Plastoid.
You creatures destroyed my planet.
Now I will kill every last one of you.
[WHOOSHING] Guys, anyone there? Barry, I'm here.
It's me.
What's up? I need you to activate the tracker I put on Dibny.
You put a tracker on Ralph? Plastoid.
Cisco, do you know where he is? He's at City Hall.
You lost weight.
Lap band surgery.
Heh.
Since killing you didn't work out, what we agreed upon.
200K.
Let me have the photographs.
Here's the pictures.
- Keep the money.
- What? - I take it back.
- Take it back? I take my blackmail back.
- Is this some kind of a trick? - I'm not dirty.
And I don't want any part of this anymore.
And don't you forget, I can tie you to that bomb you had your goons plant in my office, so if you don't walk away, I will go to the cops.
- That's still blackmail.
- No, it's not.
Yes, it is.
You're telling me if I don't give you this money, you won't go to the cops.
Okay, fine.
I am blackmailing you into not being blackmailed.
So, we're good, then.
Yeah, we're good.
- [GUNSHOT] - [RUBBER STRETCHING] Bullet booger.
Super gross.
[WHOOSHING] Sorry, Mr.
Mayor.
It's over.
[ELECTRIC BUZZING] Die, Plastoid, die! You will not infest this world as you did mine, Plastoid.
Plastoid, what? Is he talking to me? Breacher, stop.
- [ELECTRIC SHOCKS] - [GRUNTING] - Okay.
- He dies, speedster.
Get in there, Joe.
You're coming with me.
- Flash! - [GRUNTS] [SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC] Look, you don't have to do this.
Yes, I do.
[ELECTRIC SHOCKS] [HEROIC MUSIC] Leave him alone.
This guy didn't invade your planet.
He didn't do anything wrong.
He's like this 'cause of me and my team.
So if you've got a problem with him and his powers, then you deal with me.
Hey, are we good here? Because I definitely gotta change my drawers.
[HELICOPTER FLYING] The Mayor took Joe.
I can't run fast enough right now.
I'll never have enough speed to jump off a building.
Can you breach me up there? No way.
The event horizon would rip that helicopter apart.
But we've gotta save Joe.
What do we do? You can get me up there.
- Me? - Yeah.
- How? - You can stretch.
Grab it.
Are you are you crazy? I can't do that.
Yes, you can.
All right? I know that you have it inside you to help someone other than yourself.
I know you, Ralph.
How could you possibly know me? Dude, are you kidding me? You're the Flash? Everyone else gets struck by lightning and dies, - and you get super powers? - Ralph, yeah, that's right.
Your assistant's a speedster? I liked the Flash.
Now I have to hate the Flash.
Ralph, focus.
I need you to do this.
Joe needs you to do this.
Please.
Show me I was wrong about you.
You said you were a good cop.
Be one right now.
Aah! [RUBBER STRETCHING] What the hell? I got it! [LAUGHS] Ooh.
Ooh-oh - Help! - Hold on, Ralph.
Ooh.
Cecile's pregnant.
Anything you need anything you need You already know you already know That I got you Yeah yeah yeah yeah Whoa whoa Never let them tell you that you can't do your thing I got you Well, we've reached the end of our road.
We had some stumbles along the way, but we pulled it together.
We made it home.
- I hate you.
- Wow.
Really thought that one would work.
But I respect you.
You're a steadfast warrior who would fight the fiercest of enemies to protect your friend and the only person I love.
With my dying breath, sir.
I know that, but I still hate you.
I have never seen him gush like that.
That's gushing? I'm terrified to experience him loving me.
- [WHOOSHING] - Well, that's my job.
Oh, that's right.
It is.
I feel a code-17 breach in progress.
We have to leave now, Cynthia.
Cyn-Cynthia? Cynthia.
What's your dad's name? Josh.
[LAUGHS] Cynthia and Josh.
That's great.
Not so scary now, Cynthia.
Keep calling me that.
See what happens.
All right.
See you around Gypsy.
[ROUSING MUSIC] [OMINOUS MUSIC] [SIGHS] - I fixed up your office.
- Sweet fancy Moses.
Thanks for screwing up my insurance claim.
No payout, no mayor money.
I gotta pick up a case soon.
What if I had a job for you? I wanna laugh really hard right now, but I'm afraid my face will fall off again.
I can't change what has happened between us in the past, but I can offer you a chance to change what happens - in our future.
- How? Let my team and I study your powers, figure out how to improve them, see what your limitations are.
And let me train you.
Train me? For what? To do what I do.
To be a detective again, Ralph.
A real one.
Like, it's not gonna be easy.
I'm gonna push you to your limit.
I think it's safe to say some days you're gonna hate me.
Allen, it's safe to say that I always hate you.
[LAUGHS] Do I get a cool super hero name? What do you think about Plastic Man? I think that's the dumbest name I've ever heard of.
Yeah, Cisco comes up with the names.
It's better that way.
What do you say? There's just one thing I gotta ask you.
What made you look into Mayor Bellows in the first place? Oh, it was a client.
Asked me to follow the Mayor.
Never met him, though.
He did everything over the phone.
Who was it? Only gave me his last name.
DeVoe.
You and I have been enemies for years.
Oh, you've had others, of course.
There's Thawne.
Zoom.
DeVoe.
This is where we came up with the cerebral inhibitor to use against DeVoe.
What's wrong? The name DeVoe mean something to you? I smell a mystery.
