The Flash (2014) s04e19 Episode Script

Fury Rogue

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.
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" I'm not a ghost.
I'm Leo Snart, from Earth-X.
I didn't do anything! I understand, but your radioactivity is dangerous.
You are part of this team.
And I'm the only one with a body that DeVoe is trying to snatch.
Now you will die, for me.
- Killer Frost - Is gone.
My new host body holds an ancillary benefit.
Dark matter, siphoned from the room where Dr.
Wells was charging his counterfeit cap.
Maximum capacity, now! Again.
Wells, the odds of a different conclusion - are extremely low.
- Run it again.
Yes, Dr.
Same results, Dr.
The excessive infusion of dark matter into your neural system has disrupted the area of the brain where general intelligence and executive function occur.
My ability to integrate new information is declining.
I'm losing my intelligence.
At some point soon you need to relearn everything you've ever known.
Is there a way to use the thinking cap to reverse this process? Unlikely, Dr.
Your thinking cap and the dark matter is what caused this.
I tried to caution restraint I know! Gideon, how long before everything I know is gone? You know, it's only been a couple days since he died, but it still doesn't feel real.
How close were you with Ralph? We were becoming close.
Yeah, it took me a while to see past the things that I didn't like when we first met, but after a while, I started to see what a good guy he was.
Started to see the hero that he became.
You consider him a hero? Yeah.
Yeah I do.
What about you, Barry? - How are you feeling? - I'm fine.
I mean, you know, I'm working through it.
So you weren't as close to him as Iris was? No, I mean, we were about the same, I'd say.
They used to work together.
- Oh? - Yeah.
And you're fine already? With his death? I've dealt with a lot of death in my life.
Yes, you have.
Your mother, father, Eddie, Ronnie, H.
Has Ralph's death had any impact on you at all? I think I just know how to deal with death now, so it doesn't affect me as much as it once did.
Uh, all right, I guess we'll pick this up later.
Same time next week? Or before if you need.
Barry Grief is a complex emotion that, as you know, deals on its own terms.
There is no "practice makes perfect.
" Thirsty, my love? You're happy.
More than I've been in a long time, my love.
To your return.
I never left you, Marlize.
It felt like you had.
Those days are past us now.
All our sacrifice, our commitment, our planning, everything is as it was.
And more.
There's been no decline in your metabolic processes since your last transference.
My mind, my abilities These elasticized cells can hold another bus full of meta-human powers and I still wouldn't be affected.
That gives me peace, Clifford.
I need your mind focused for what happens next.
- We start today? - Yes.
But we have time, my love.
Could we not spend time together? As husband and wife? I think Mm, that is That is your first mistake.
Leave the thinking to me.
Whoa! Stop, don't bother.
It doesn't work.
- I don't know about that.
- Yeah, well I know about it.
I'm guy who wore it on his head.
And it helped you gain ground on DeVoe, didn't it? Mapping the pocket dimensions, building the Scepter.
We stopped you from using it right when we needed it most, when Ralph got We thought you were addicted.
We shouldn't have stopped you.
We were wrong.
Actually, no you know what, you weren't wrong.
No, I was I was addicted.
Yeah, which is stupid when you think about it.
Because I'm a pretty smart guy.
How much smarter was this Intelligence Booster making me? 10%? I think we both agree that DeVoe is at least twice as smart as that.
Then maybe I should get to wear it too.
Okay, no.
No, this thing would never work on you, because I specifically designed this to stimulate my brain waves.
My brain waves, not yours, okay? My cerebral firings, 'kay? Harry, Harry, I'm saying we should build a second thinking cap.
- "Intelligence Booster.
" - For me.
For you? Yes, for me.
Think about it.
Two heads are better than one.
Your ideas, my ideas.
Put 'em together.
We combine them.
We build upon each other's ideas.
Harry, with two caps With two caps we could get DeVoe.
Get on it.
- Anything new? - No sign of DeVoe.
I meant with you.
No cold signatures anywhere in the city.
Killer Frost is nowhere to be found.
That doesn't make sense, I mean, DeVoe created every bus meta for a reason.
I mean, he had no interest in Barry's powers or Cisco's, or any of the metas in Iron Heights, so I don't know why he would suddenly want yours.
We all saw what happened.
When DeVoe touched me, my powers disappeared.
Had to be him.
DeVoe? Uh, satellite's picking up three different pocket dimensions opening in Key Stone.
Let's each All right, you and me, Ray, let's go.
Whoa, whoa, whoa, wait, wait.
They all just closed.
What? Huh.
Wrong coordinates? Maybe he made a mistake.
He doesn't make mistakes.
He must want something in Keystone.
- Tracy Brand's lab.
- He's going after Fal Fut.
All right, call Tracy.
Tell her we're coming for Borman, okay? Wait, and gonna do what? Just to take him somewhere else.
Well, we can't take him here.
We can't even contain his fallout.
Tracy's barely been able to contain his powers as is.
Yeah, the guy's a nuclear explosion waiting to go off.
And I don't know about you, but I I've had my fill of nuclear bombs this year.
But if we can cool him down, we can get him somewhere safe.
What about Snart's cold gun? I mean, I have a prototype, but to modify it to our needs, that would take at least a day.
We don't have that kind of time.
DeVoe's coming for him.
DeVoe has known our every move.
I mean, we've gotta do something that he hasn't accounted for.
How are we supposed to find a way to cool down Borman and take him somewhere DeVoe won't know about with a plan he won't see coming? Call Lyla.
See if A.
has anything off the grid.
Okay, but even if they do, I mean, what are we going to do about the other two problems? War's over! Bad guys and girls lost.
Nazi regime's been dismantled.
And the rebellion's in charge now.
Why don't you turn yourself in? Save us the Tom and Jerry.
Find some other misguided cause to get all aggro about.
Not this knight.
I will fight until every last one of you finds the same fate as my brothers and sisters.
Your timing is impeccable.
Your timing is impeccable.
We need your help on our Earth.
Right now? I'm kinda busy.
Doing what? Dying? Touché! So, you're trying to stop a guy who thinks he's smarter than everyone and his true-believer lover, who are hell-bent on achieving their evil machinations at any cost.
Well, it's right up my alley.
Except DeVoe actually is smarter than everyone.
He created 12 meta-humans just so he could steal their powers.
And he left everybody dead in the process.
Including Ralph Dibny, who was a team member of ours.
I'm sorry.
That's rough.
All these deaths have been rough.
We can't dwell on it right now.
You know, we have to focus so DeVoe doesn't know what we're doing and we have a shot at saving Borman.
Which is why we came to you.
Oh, I see, and I'm just outside the box enough to catch DeVoe off-guard.
That, and we need your cold gun.
Oh? For what? We've been working on modifying a radiation hazmat suit to regulate his internal temperature to keep his core from raising to the point of detonation during transport.
Your cold gun would be our backup.
It must be happy hour, and I'm the two-for-one.
What about your chilly friend? She doesn't want in on the fun? - She's gone.
- That's too bad.
All right, you get me for 24 hours.
- Not a minute more.
- Wait, why not? Because I thought I'd make Ray an honest man.
- You're getting married? - That's so exciting! I figured if you two could make it, - so could we.
- What? - No, we - I tease.
So, where are we moving this guy to? A.
has a facility in New Brighton.
High tech, high security He should be safe there.
And how long till you're done with the suit? - Few more tweaks.
- Okay.
I'm gonna go call my dad and let him know the plan.
- Hey! - Hey.
Is that it? Are you done? Yeah, well, the truth is, the first one was the hard part.
This one is simply, basically - following the plan's - Precisely! Let's take this for a spin, shall we? Oh, all right, go ahead.
Have a seat.
All right, then I guess Hey.
I trust you.
No, I know that.
Okay, here we go.
- Connection established.
- Hmm, tingles.
Kinda feels like my conditioner! Ooh! That's your synaptic activity enhancing.
Whoa! Boy, is it ever.
It's like a party in my brain.
I can see why you like this thing so much.
I can feel my neurons firing.
Okay! Ooh-hoo! Pikachu! Whoo! Harry! - Harry! - Yeah, yeah, yup, yup, yup.
- Oh, oh, ha-ha.
- Whoo! Yeah, you know what, I think what happened, probably a hyper-limiter valve, that, uh Promethium ion diodes.
- Promethium ion diode, yep.
- They overloaded the cap.
Real bummer.
Oh, well.
We tried.
How the hell'd you get promethium ion diodes? Oh, I got 'em.
I in my lab on my Earth, had 'em there, but I'm all out, unfortunately.
We don't have any here.
It would take us weeks to get some.
Oh, well.
Well, you know what, we'll put in a back order.
I'll see if I can come up with something else.
I see our scare tactics worked.
They're going to move the asset as you anticipated.
Yes, but unfortunately not to a location I predicted.
What is this? Your favorite dress.
And you chose to wear that now? To please you, my love.
What would please me is your understanding of the gravity of our undertaking.
To right the misguided course of all humanity.
- I just thought - Shh, shh, shh.
You see, again, you thought.
Which led you to this trivial emotion.
Now, change into something a bit more appropriate.
Your role, from now until the enlightenment has occurred, is as my technician.
Now leave me be so that I can figure out a way to motivate Team Flash to deliver our quarry to where initially intended.
All right, look, I think we take Highway 14.
It's as rural as we're going to get.
It's a straight shot to New Brighten.
Best chance to get Fallout to safety.
Sounds like a plan, Barry.
You know how I feel about plans.
This was your team member, right? Ralph Dibny? Yeah, Elongated Man.
"Elongated Man"? Don't remember someone with that name being a part of the fight against the Nazis.
No, no, he, um he wasn't ready yet.
Ah, a rookie hero.
So you trained him? As much as I could, yeah.
Even harder death to take, someone you've mentored.
And yet somehow you seem okay, considering this happened, what, just a few days ago? I am okay.
I'm just trying to do what I have to do.
I'm trying to stay on task.
Oh, is that what you're doing? Do you know how many rebels we lost over the years, Barry, trying to defeat those Nazi bastards? - Countless, I'm sure.
- Not countless.
3,769 were under my watch.
And I felt the weight of each of their deaths.
I still do, some years after they die.
- Yeah, look - The thing I realized is that to continue to lead, to be clear-headed, I had to grieve for those men and women I lost.
So I did.
Each and every one.
Look, Barry.
You want me to help you move a meta-human nuclear bomb that some genius with nearly every meta-power on this board is after, I will do what I can, as long as your head is on straight.
Because if I die before Ray and I get married, Ray will kill me.
Suits ready.
And Fallout is ready at Tracy's lab.
So let's get to Keystone.
- You good? - I'm good.
Then let's go get our guy.
Meta-human nuclear bomb Nuclear bomb And Fallout is ready at Tracy's lab Fallout is ready at Tracy's lab Let's get to Keystone Let's get to Keystone Let's go get our guy Yes, let's.
After all, a nuke is a terrible thing to waste.
You're telling me I have to wear this thing the whole time? Yeah, look, that suit protects us from you so that we can protect you from the guy that's trying to hunt you down.
Why is he after me? Honestly, Neil, we don't know, but we want to find out as much as you do.
And we will.
Trust me.
Saved me once, Flash, I trust you to do it again.
What's that? I whipped up this cocktail of atomized DTPA and potassium iodide.
It should flood our thyroids with enough non-radioactive iodine so that if our containment suit doesn't work, it should offer us some protection from radiation.
Some protection, how vaguely reassuring.
- How long will this last? - Two, three hours max.
- You'd better get going.
- All right.
Let's just go over the plan one more time, okay? I'm going to be running ahead of the truck, scouting the route for any signs of trouble.
Right, I will be at S.
Labs tracking any pocket dimension en route.
And I'll be in the truck with Neil monitoring his vitals and RADS.
With me at the ready, in case our meta of mass destruction here goes all mushroom cloud.
- No offense.
- And I'll be driving.
And reciting every prayer that Cecile's ever taught me.
I might join you.
Look, guys, I know DeVoe's hit us pretty hard, but right now let's just Let's try to forget what he's taken from us, and stay focused on taking something from him by getting Neil safely to A.
We do that, whatever DeVoe has planned falls apart.
Winning this battle may just win us this war.
Hear, hear! Let's all make sure we keep our heads in the game.
So we can stay safe out there.
I know what that was about.
It was a good speech, Barry.
Just making sure you heard it, didn't just give it.
What is that supposed to mean? If you don't confront your feelings, they will confront you.
All clear on my end.
There's no pocket dimension activity in the area.
Roads are looking good too.
Joe? Yeah, the rig is secure.
- Caitlyn? - RADS are good.
Heartbeat regular.
On Earth-X, we have a saying.
"If you laugh out loud, you got to share the joke.
" Byproduct of living on an Earth where joy is a scarce commodity.
It's a Post-it note from Killer Frost.
It's how we talk.
"Broke the thermostat again.
I think it hates me.
" Aw, it's cute.
Do you miss her? It's not that it's just that we were starting to become close lately.
And I know how crazy that sounds considering we're talking about someone who actually lived inside of me.
I'm on an alt-Earth transporting a human bomb with an escort that can literally run back to the future.
Your story is the least crazy thing I've heard all day.
One thing's for sure.
I will miss those little notes.
Alter-ego or not, it's okay to miss someone we've lost.
How's he doing? Good.
His RADS are low, vitals seem stable.
I gave him a sedative, and it seems to be working.
Okay, good, we're almost there Guys, there's pocket dimension activity.
- Dad! - I'm trapped in here.
The door's unlocked, but But it's just like It weighs a ton.
Iris? - Iris? - Dad? The comms are out.
It's DeVoe.
He's here? Mr.
As usual, you're a step behind me.
Yay, puns.
You Earth-1 villains sure are a hoot.
You have no idea, Mr.
You're not taking Fallout.
I can, and I will, if not here and now, then after your top-secret transfer to A.
Yes, I know.
Remember? Good, I won't have to feel guilty about doing this.
Well, that de-escalated quickly.
The miniscule sound waves produced by that toy trinket of yours are far too weak for this new body of mine.
What a gift Mr.
Dibny provided.
Well, it was a gift in a manner of speaking.
Right, rookie? Barry.
Why such turmoil in your mind, Mr.
Allen? Allow me to ease your pain.
That's it! I'm leaving! No, no, no, I need you to stay here and calm down.
Neil, wait! I want you all to listen to me very carefully, and hopefully I won't have to raise my voice.
This truck is now mine.
We really have no way of finding Joe and Caitlyn? Not even by tracking Fallout? That hazmat suit is hiding his radiation signature.
So the satellite can't even find him unless he heats up.
Okay, well, what do you know about Laurel Lance's doppelganger? And why was she hunting you? That was Siren-X, all that's left of the Reichsmen.
An elite assassin gone mad, and she is relentless.
Carried a torch for Dark Arrow, unrequited, so she's none too pleased with those responsible for his death, present company included.
So she has the same powers as Black Siren? The Laurel Lance of Earth-2.
And Earth-1's Laurel Lance She died.
She was the second Black Canary after her sister, who also died and came back, but as White Canary, cause - Cisco.
- It's complicated.
Doppelganger confusion aside, Siren-X has my cold-gun and a nuke, and her thirst for vengeance won't prevent her from using either one on me or all of you now.
Hey, are you sure you're okay? - I'm fine.
- I'm just a little worried.
It seemed like she got the jump on you out there.
She didn't.
She just caught me off-guard.
And why does it matter right now? We don't even know where Joe and Caitlyn are.
- I - Cisco, will you just - see if Harry has any ideas? - I'm on it.
Just watch the satellites like a hawk.
Leo, what exactly happened out there? Oh, just your typical deadly combat between two metas from multiple earths.
- I'll go talk to him.
- Thank you.
Where is it? Hey, Ramon, wh what are you doing? A Nazi Laurel Lance just kidnapped Caitlyn and Joe.
We're going to make this thing work, and we're going to make it work now.
Okay, well, we can't.
We can't, I still haven't found a replacement for that Where did you get that? I found this in one of the cubes Gypsy sent me.
How clever of you.
You know what, Ramon? It's still not going to work.
It's not gonna work.
- Why? - Because it's not gonna work.
Okay? Because it's a waste of time.
Because I said so! That's why! - Well, in that case - Listen, Ramon Our friends' lives are at stake.
- You don't - Look! I don't know what's going on with you, but if you're not going to help me with this thing, I What Why would you do that? To protect you.
The cap did this? And dark matter.
You used dark matter? I used dark matter.
It look, Ramon.
It was the only way.
The only way to do what? Fry your synapses? Harry, you promised me.
I know I promised you, I promised you.
Oh, my god.
Harry, how could you be so stupid? - 'Cause I felt so stupid! - We all feel stupid right now! Yes, but you're Vibe, Allen's the Flash.
Who am I? My only job is to be smarter than all the villains who want to hurt this team, and without that, I'm nothing.
I'm about to lose the only part of me that has any value to this team, the only part of me that matters.
And so, yeah, I destroyed the cap.
So that you wouldn't make the same mistake I did.
This should not be happening.
Perhaps you miscalculated.
I calculated everything.
The Flash's involvement with the bus meta, the recruitment of Snart's doppelganger, even the arrival of the Earth-X banshee.
Every event occurred exactly as I predicted.
Except the outcome! You were supposed to defeat Siren-X? No.
The Flash was, but Barry Allen just stood there, frozen.
And now I've lost my only nuclear meta because The Flash failed! Why? Why did he fail? Perhaps there were variables that we just did not consider.
As I already explained, there is no variable beyond my examination.
Even less apparent.
The last time Barry Allen saw you, you took the life of his close friend, and now he sees you and he pauses.
You really don't see it? You can calculate near-infinite outcomes across multiple Earths, but you cannot account for how someone is feeling.
What'd you see out there, Barry? When you froze up? Nothing.
You just got two of your teammates captured and almost got me killed.
So either you explain what happened or I leave.
- I saw Ralph.
- Mm, I warned you.
He is messing with your head.
No, it's not like that.
Do I miss him? Yes.
Do I regret what happened? Of course.
But I don't need lessons in loss.
What I need to do right now is lead my team.
Well, you're gonna lead them to their deaths if you don't deal with this.
Back off, Leo.
You need to grieve him, Barry.
Grief is a luxury I don't have time for.
- Make time! - I can't! Not Ralph, not right now.
So we've finally reached the core.
You don't want to grieve this wound.
So Ralph's death must be different from all the other losses you've experienced, but why? Why? Barry, trust me.
There is no outrunning grief.
If that was a pun, I'm sorry.
Run, run! CCPD, home of the brave land of the dead.
Killing all these people won't bring back your regime.
No, it won't.
But decimating your so-called officers will make it a hell of a lot more even.
I'll make sure of it.
Remove your helmet.
What? Take it off! CCPD.
Why would she take him there? We destroyed her protectors.
Maybe she wants to do the same to us.
Harry, we need eyes.
You know what? Why don't you let me take care of it, all right? You keep an eye on the RADS.
Leo, we're on.
Barry, I'm always on.
- Oh wait, I need a - Oh, got you.
- Thank you, Iris.
- Mm.
How much time do we have left on the injection? Not enough.
Barry! This is for destroying my world! - 7,000 RADS.
- And climbing.
Guys, you gotta cool him down.
8,000 RADS and climbing.
Flash, get up.
Get up! Flash, people are going to die, Flash.
I'm not ready to die.
Rise up.
Let me train you.
- Train me? - Fight it, all right? Fight it! I'll save you.
Flash, Flash! You have to deal with the pain! No! Can't get away from what's inside you, so stop trying! Flash! 9,000 RADS.
The whole place is gonna blow.
Flash! Wasn't your fault! Ralph, I'll save you! You already did, Barry.
He's burning up! Time to get cold-blooded.
8,000 RADS.
7,000 RADS.
Keep icing him, it's working.
And dropping.
He's contained.
They did it.
Where's The Flash? Bar.
What's going on, Bar? He trusted me, Joe.
I let him down.
Ralph, I'm the reason he's dead.
- No.
- No.
- No.
- I failed him, I He was my responsibility.
Now he's gone.
It's all right.
So we're sure that Fallout is secure? Well, Lyla said she had some people who would be very interested in helping Borman control his powers.
She took him to a different A.
black-ops site - way off the grid.
- How far off the grid? Like, it would take Jack Ryan two Tom Clancy novels to find him.
I got to say, on any Earth, Snarts have style.
Perfect fit.
Thought you could do something with it.
- You wear it well.
- Thank you.
You sure you can't come to the wedding? I could put all of you at a table with Ray's uncle Skip.
He murders the "Macarena.
" Yeah, DeVoe's still out there.
Suit yourselves.
But if you're looking for a place to honeymoon, our Earth has some pretty spectacular spots.
What is this? That is an inter-dimensional extrapolator.
It makes small-scale breaches.
You know, in case Ray's uncle Skip wants to see how the other half lives.
Oh, well, look at that.
Something old, something new, something borrowed, something navy.
We're gonna miss you, Leo.
Gonna miss you, too, Caitlyn.
You're quite the badass, you know.
Enough to make your alter-ego proud.
Thank you.
Detective West, I know my Earth-1 counterpart gave you a lot of headaches.
Hopefully I've begun to make up for that.
Man, you prevented a nuke from leveling the city.
We're good.
Cisco, I'm really gonna miss that hair.
Iris West-Allen, thank you for helping me take down Nazi scum, again.
You're welcome, again.
And then there was one.
I could see why the other Snart turned over a new leaf and joined the good guys.
You treat everyone around you with kindness and respect.
Just remember to do the same for yourself, every once in a while.
Thanks for helping me push through.
Anytime, Barry.
Don't be a stranger.
Oh, you never know.
How you doing? I know last night was pretty rough.
I'll tell you about it when we see Dr.
We're seeing Dr.
Finkle? Yeah, I gave her a call.
How's it going? I don't know.
Hauling a nuclear meta across the state, getting kidnapped by a screeching psychopath, and helping to save the city.
I'd say that's pretty impressive for someone without a meta other half to lean on.
You know, the thing I realized yesterday is even though I can live without Killer Frost, I don't think I want to.
Run some more tests, find out for sure.
- I already did.
- And? I've been too afraid to find out.
Let's find out together.
What does it say? It says the reason dark matter isn't registering in my body is because there is none.
So she's gone? It says there's still another cryogenic anomaly in my DNA.
Killer Frost is still a part of you.
I just have to figure out how to get her to appear.
You going somewhere? Yeah, matter of fact I'm gonna go visit my daughter while I'm still of somewhat sound mind.
It's not like I can help you guys around here anyway.
Cause that is the only part of you that matters, - that mind of yours.
- Exactly.
Is that why Jesse turned out so great? Yep.
No, I don't know.
What's your point? Jesse Quick, superhero, scientist Yeah, I know who she is.
All around wonderful person, she turned out that way because I don't know.
I think you do.
You told me you were about to lose the only part of you that has value.
Raising Jesse? Raising a kid that turns out like that.
That takes a lot more than intelligence.
If you asked her, I'm pretty sure she'd tell you learning quadratic equations at age five from her math-obsessed father wasn't nearly as important to her as having a dad who was there for her and who gave a damn.
So, my point is Well-taken.
So now what? Sit around and wait until I regress to a simpleton? Now we figure out a way to fix you.
Just like you did when Barry lost his speed.
We find a way to jump start your brain.
But this is the hard part, 'cause it's gonna take all of us to do it, which means you have to tell the team.
I gotta tell the team.
Yeah, I know you're right, but maybe not today.
When you're ready.
- Ramon.
- Yeah? Thank you.
I knew Ralph since I was a rookie on the force.
And all that time, I thought I knew exactly what kind of person he was.
Why is that? We just never saw things the same way, you know? I was raised to believe that people are good.
And Ralph? He always saw the worst in people, and he knew how to take advantage of it.
But, um he changed.
He did.
He changed, and I couldn't see that for a long time.
And now that I can I think that's what's so hard is, you know, of course, I miss Ralph, but it just took me so long to see what he'd become.
I just I never had a chance to tell him just how proud I am to be his friend.
And I always will be.
I'm sure he knew that, Barry.
What else would you tell him, if you could right now? That I feel responsible.
I feel responsible for what happened.
And he taught me more than I could have ever taught him.
And for that, I'll always be grateful.
Allowing events to unfold naturally turned out in our favor.
Just as you said it would.
And success came our way without the hindrance of that most aberrant of human follies Emotion.
It did, indeed.
And to think, for a moment there, I experienced doubt.
