The Flash (2014) s05e02 Episode Script

Blocked

Previously on "The Flash" You never come back.
You are not stuck here, are you? - Bye, Cisco.
- Bye, Sandy.
My father's death certificate.
The ME who signed off on it, he doesn't exist.
- So this death certificate - Is a fake.
- Who the hell are you? - What do you want? For all of you to die.
What the Damn, man.
Another fight? Yeah.
I'd hate to see the other guy.
See you on the floor.
So you're not stuck here.
No, I'm not.
So they will reverse tachyons in your system? Were put there because of me.
Are you kidding? You know how many credit card points I just blew trying to get rid of your negative tachyons? I just bought a brand new spectral tachyeometer when I could have my Fiji get away.
Not that I have anyone to go with, anymore.
I'm not taking you to Fiji, Ralph.
Why didn't you guys tell us about this before? Oh, my God! Barry never returns? That's why you came here.
To see you father, because you were raised without him.
So what? Iris.
So what that that article says that you never come back.
So what if the other one says that you vanished.
I mean, it's said other things before, right? We made it say other things before.
So whatever the future brings we are gonna deal with it when it gets here.
And change it if we need to.
She has a point.
If there's anything Team Flash is good at, it's handing the future its own ass and then some.
What he said.
Well, looks like Nora's gonna need more training after all.
- Oh, okay.
- She's hungry.
Yeah, why don't we, uh, all meet back at S.
T.
A.
R.
Labs, all right? Wow, first you meet your adult daughter from the future and now this.
I mean, it's a lot.
Yeah.
Well, I guess now I know why she never wants to leave her dad's side and why she Never wants to be by mine.
Nora will reach out at some point.
The trick is you gotta keep yourself busy.
- Yeah.
- Thanks, Dad.
Joe! - Cecile? - Cecile, what's wrong? I can't hear what she wants.
I can't hear anything.
I think I'm losing my powers.
Hey babe, uh, it's me, just checking in, for my dad.
He - Hello there.
- Hey.
- What are you doing? - I was just trying to get Barry's new suit into this ring.
Oh, it's it's tiny.
Yeah, you weren't watching old holograms of Gipsy.
- Why would I be doing that? - Because you miss her.
We just had something so special.
Shouldn't it have work? Of course now it's not so special anymore now she's just rattlin' around inside my head.
I'm sorry this is so hard for you.
But it's okay that you are still thinking about her.
I don't think you understand, Caitlin.
I mean, she's literally inside my head.
I can't vibe.
Everything I vibe connects to her.
I put some music on, I hear her voice singing along.
I'm painting my figurines, I see her face on Captains Kirk's body.
Shh Do you smell that? Of course you don't.
'Cause that's her perfume and I'm only one smelling it.
- Of course.
- Your powers linked you guys over pan-dimensional spacetime, so it makes complete sense that your vibes echoes would still be Connecting us to each other.
Yes, I know.
Thank you for the diagnosis.
- I'm sorry.
- You don't need a doctor.
You need a friend.
I'm sorry.
I'm just I'm a mess.
- Oh, perfect.
- Been looking for you two.
We need to talk.
I've hit a real wall trying to figure out who forged this death certificate, so I was thinking maybe Cisco could give this a little bit of a Cisco is not available right now.
Please leave a message.
Oh, hey, Cisco, it's Ralph.
Hope you are doing well.
Just get back to me.
I need to vibe this as soon as possible.
Bye, bye.
Ralph, um, Cisco can't vibe right now, so we're just gonna have to deal with this a little later.
- Why can't he vibe right now? - What's going on? Because we need to help him get over Gipsy.
I mean, like you said, Cisco get his vibe back, - we can crack this case.
- Please, stop caring about me.
Ralph, I mean, you don't have any ideas about how to help a man get over a heartbreak, do you? Oh, my God, you stop it, girl.
You know I have plenty.
Cisco, you wanna know why I'm perfect guy to help you get over this and get back into the game of love? Because trust me, buddy, nobody, I mean nobody, has been kicked out of that more than me.
- Hello, Bobby.
- Vanessa Jansen.
You got out of the slammer.
Now I'm gonna loosen up that chokehold you and that punk-ass brother of yours have on all the big arms deals in this city.
I don't think so.
What the hell? Do you know what four years in Iron Heights will do to you, Bobby? It makes you very, very, angry.
Vanessa, you Cain't gonna do this.
Vanessa, please.
Okay.
So this is where the Moretti brothers - have been running guns.
- Yeah.
Stealing from these guys takes some cojones.
Any idea who our bold thieve might be? - Not yet.
- Made my rounds too.
So far the only prints belong to Bobby and Bruno Moretti.
Well, whoever did this, they're running fast and loose.
- Mm-hmm.
- If we don't stop this, a lot of high powered weapons are gonna flood the streets.
Central City is gonna be a war zone.
Don't worry about the city, friend.
CCPD's finest are on the case.
- And you are - Nora, CSI intern.
- Who are you? - The captain of CCPD.
Captain David Singh.
Oh I've read so much about you.
It's really nice to meet you.
You hired an intern, Allen? I am very sorry, sir, but I needed help with, um, the cases that accumulated while I was suspended and you said the Mayor wasn't going to give us any money to help solve them, so I hired an intern to help for free.
Mm.
Well, make her official when you get back.
- Yeah.
- Yeah.
I know you're surprised to see me but I found this badge and this jacked and thought, "I'm a CSI too" so I should help my dad.
Right, okay.
You said you were still a rookie, right? Well, yeah, but forensic sciences in the future is like way advance, so I can totally handle a robbery scene.
- Like, not a prob.
- Ah, got you.
- That's great.
- What is that? That I haven't gotten to yet.
But it looks like somebody wanted their pound of flesh.
- Nora, wait.
- Wha - What are you doing? - You can't touch that.
You'll contaminate the evidence.
Sorry, you mean you don't have a scene-wide modified bosonic frequency field to avoid cross-contamination? I don't even think we have some of those words yet.
Oops.
Well ugh.
It's just this seems way denser than human tissue.
Yeah, you're right, actually.
I can't even move this thing.
This isn't a pound of flesh.
This is a whole human body.
That is so schway.
Let's hold off in telling the Mayor about this until we have some more info.
She's still be upset about the Lang homicide.
Hey, Captain, did you mean Gridlock? I thought he was locked up in Iron Heights.
Iris, it's a pleasure to see you.
Can we secure the crime scene, please? You know I can't make a comment on the record.
Okay, well, how about off the record? Just once and that's it, and only because it's you.
Okay.
While in transport to Iron Heights the convoy was attacked.
Lang was killed by something strong.
- We think maybe a meta.
- Were there any survivors? Four guards, they are still in the hospital.
- So if you hear anything - Yeah, I got you.
Thanks.
Put this away, and, hey.
- Here, put these on.
- Okay.
You do have The book of Ralph.
Yep, and we are gonna start with a page of Ralph 'cause he's nowhere near ready for this whole book.
"Ralph Dibny's 27 steps to getting over the love of your life.
" Are you kidding me with this? We just want to help you get past Gipsy.
And if this has worked for Ralph Multiple times I will add.
Then I think it's worth trying.
Come on, what's step one? Shark cage diving.
- What's step two? - Affirmations.
- Oh.
- Okay.
Ralphy is kind.
Ralphy is great.
Ralphy is a brilliant detective.
Yeah, buddy, I mean, I know all that.
But it works a lot better if you use your name instead.
Cisco is creative.
Cisco is good.
Cisco is smarter than your average bear.
That's Yogi's.
You stole Yogi's affirmation.
Yeah, I did, 'cause it's a winner.
You don't see him moping over any lady bears.
Okay, you know what, Caitlin? I changed my mind, all right? I I don't care about the Gipsy vibes.
I'll just muscle through them, let's just help you with your thing and just get me the hell out of here, please? No, Cisco, after Ronnie and Jay you helped me get back past it.
Now it's my turn to help you.
Okay? So We don't have time to find ourselves in Thailand.
And we are certainly not watching "Beaches" while painting each others toes.
That's a really important one, though.
But step twelve isn't so bad.
Holy Kafka.
Come on, Cisco, change is good.
No, no, no.
Change is pain.
It's not as painful as seeing you like this, buddy.
Fine.
Whatever you say, doc.
Um, Officer Matthews? Yes.
Hi, I'm Iris West-Allen.
I'm reporter, and I'm doing a story about William Lang.
- Gridlock.
- Pardon? You call him Gridlock.
In your blog I've read it.
It's good.
Thanks.
Um, I understand that you were part of the convoy that was escorting him to Iron Heights when you were attacked.
- Something like that.
- What do you mean? I mean I really don't remember what happened.
One minute I was in my vehicle there was a pile up, I got out to see what's going on.
Everything went black.
Finally came to and Lang's laying there on the ground, beaten to a pulp.
He was beaten to death? Beaten, then stabbed.
- Was anyone else hurt? - No.
Everyone else on SWA was concussed like me.
So, Lang was the only target? Looks like it.
Thanks for your time.
- Oh, hi, sorry, sorry, sorry.
- Hey.
- I just - I got a little too excited.
Okay, guess what? You know my powers have been fading in and out.
Mostly out.
Well, I am definitely losing them.
You weren't that excited about that this morning.
- No.
- No, I was not.
But I'm excited now because I have a fix.
I have a fix! Mental activity dampener 2.
0.
2.
0.
Harry altered it so that you can hear the thoughts of whoever is wearing it.
And why would we wanna do that? So we can make sure it works before we put it on Jenna.
Uh-uh.
Oh, honey, it's completely safe, Harry used it on his own daughter, It doesn't mean we have to use it on ours.
Oh, ok okay.
Honey, listen.
I have had a constant telepathic connection to our child since before she was born.
It's been constant.
Babe, now when she cries half the time I don't know why.
Look, she's an infant.
They cry and you always get to know why.
No, not me.
You don't understand.
I haven't been the mother to a newborn in a long time.
When I got pregnant, baby, I was so scared.
But then I got powers.
These powers that gave me a chance to be a perfect parent.
The parent that our child deserves.
And now they're going away? I'm scared I can't live up to that.
I know you're struggling, babe.
But that device isn't the solution.
We'll figure out, okay? But I got it.
Ugh, these old-timey computers are even slower than the ones in storage at the Flash Museum.
DNA analysis used to take a lot longer even just ten years ago.
So, Mom took the news about you being gone better than I thought she would.
Iris is as though as they come.
I'm sure you know that.
Got a match.
Vanessa Jansen.
Low level weapon dealer affiliated with the East Street Skulls gang.
I ran into a couple of them when I was in prison.
- You were in prison? - Mm-hmm.
That wasn't in the museum.
The Skulls make the Hell's Angels look like a knitting club, drug trafficking, armed robbery.
Any places Jansen's known to frequent? East Street Auto Haven.
Looks like it's probably a front for Skull's activities.
Yes, time to take down my first baddie! Uh, with your permission, of course.
Let's do it.
What is the hold up? These you are gonna move fast.
Well, I guess, I heard right.
You got something you're selling.
Too late, another interested customer just showed up.
You're looking to buy, Bruno? From the broad who killed my brother and stole our stash? This is way out of your league, Vanessa.
See, I would've agree with you before prison.
But then I got out and it hit me I'm tougher now, Bruno.
I got connections with people that would pay big money for my weapons.
Except, they're not your weapons.
Like I said I'm tougher now.
All right, I'm gonna take Vanessa and the gangster.
Why don't you just scan the perimeter for any back up she might have.
- I can do better than that.
- What? Whoa, what're you Crap.
Sorry, I can't let you hurt him.
Or take this.
Didn't know I was a meta.
Don't feel bad, it's my new look.
- Vanessa! - The Flash! I guess I better put my hands up.
How long do you think it will I think Nora is good to go.
She didn't even need an Ibuprofen.
- You sure you feel okay? - I'm totally okay.
Come on, let's get back to work, Flash.
Okay.
All right, well let's figure out where Vanessa went.
If she sells those stolen weapons to the wrong people I Um, Cisco, were you able to get the satellite up and running? Cisco? We weren't able to track Vanessa, but we did find a scientific anomaly that we've never seen before, right, Cisco? - Han shot second.
- That doesn't even make sense.
Ralph, it's you.
Sorry to lie like that, man.
- We just we need the CCTV - CCTV, yes.
Vanessa Jansen's concentrated air squares are dense very dense, stupid dense.
The kind of dense reserved for people who still believe In love.
I think what Cisco is trying to say is that Vanessa can manipulate the movement of atoms to created concentrated air molecules in cube form.
The space between the molecules is so compact that That there isn't enough room for a speedster to vibrate trough them.
What do you call someone who can compress air molecules - into solid blocks? - I don't know, Block.
So, I guess Cisco is still taking the Gipsy thing pretty hard? Well, we're working on it.
But you can't expect real progress till you hit step 17.
It's this thing we're working on with Cisco.
You can do without us for a little while, right? I mean, we are blind without our satellite so we're just gonna have to wait until Vanessa makes her next move anyway.
What about you? Gonna hang out here for a bit? Actually, I am working on a lead.
- Huh.
- Can I use your lab? There's something I wanna follow up on.
- Yeah, of course.
- Okay.
Okay.
Uh, what kind of training is this? Well, speedsters need to know about physics, aerodynamics, trajectory formulas.
And after your last encounter with Jansen, I think is time for you to get back to basics.
- My training is math? - Yeah.
I think chapter one is probably a good place to start.
Al right, you're in for a real treat.
He initially said no, but after I told him that your cousin was John Stamos.
My cousin is not John Stamos.
He agreed to you on.
I proudly present my personal stylist, Bruce.
This guy does it all, hair, makeup.
He picks everything I wear.
- That explains that.
- Come on.
Bruce is gonna help us accomplish step twelve.
Metamorphosis.
Does that mean you think there's something wrong with me? Even a Ferrari needs a tune-up every once in a while.
This feels like purgatory.
You cut my hair, I cut you.
My work here is done.
So I hate it.
I hate it all.
Great, now that that's over and done with.
Why don't we focus on the death certificate? Well, I mean, we need to vibe it.
Or we can ask Joe to do some good old fashion police work.
Did you ever think of that? Let's not worry about it, okay? No, I mean, it's a good idea.
- We'll just ah - Let's give him a call.
Guys, stop.
Seriously, cut it out! Okay? Forget about the death certificate and let's just focus on helping our friend, okay? I need a break.
Okay, so the key with Higgs particles isn't the math per se but the effect they have on the mass of other particles.
- Yeah.
- Question.
How would one go about performing a supersonic punch on one of those particles? - Nora.
- Dad, I'm sorry, but I already know all of this.
My high school textbooks had laws of physics that this time hasn't even discover yet.
I don't need this kind of training I need to learn how to be like you.
What do you think it means to be like me? You know, running so fast you can stop a tsunami.
Or vibrating something bigger than a plane.
Or how about defeating a sand demon by throwing lighting at him.
Nora, look, all those things are way behind your current skill level.
You gotta stick to what you can handle right now.
Uh, just because I'm your daughter doesn't mean you have to baby me.
I can handle way more than you think.
Watch.
Dad! - Dad, are you okay? - I'm okay.
I've been hit with lighting before.
Ow.
- It's okay.
- It's not okay.
I guess greatness isn't hereditary.
Body cam footage.
Officer Matthews.
Bingo! What the hell was that? Stay where you are.
Freeze don't move.
What was that? Hey, I need your help.
- That's blunt.
- Yeah, so Nora, isn't really spending any time with Iris.
So she's kind of with me all the time, you know? And I've been training her a lot by myself and I just don't get it.
I mean, it's like She keeps taking things on that she can't handle yet.
It's like she wants to go big for big sake and I try to walk her back, but it's like she's not listening to what I'm teaching her, you know? It's actually that she hears the opposite of what I'm saying.
Why are you nodding? Are you agreeing with me? Do you remember your 4th grade science fair? Yeah, but what does that have to do with this? All you had to do is make a baking soda volcano.
- And what did you do? - I You built a robot with wheels, pretty much set the gym on fire.
Almost got Mrs.
Dumas too.
- But that was different.
- How so? That was the first year you took me in.
I mean, you took me when I had no one.
I looked up to you.
I mean, you were my hero.
I I really wanted to impress you.
Bar, all the information this girl has on you comes from that museum.
There're literally statues of you on pedestals.
How do you think she wants to impress her hero? So what do I do? Well, show her it's okay not to be perfect coming out of the gate.
There's no shortcuts.
Takes time to get things right and that's not a failure.
That's life.
And also show her that no matter what you're always gonna love her.
That's what parents do.
Yeah.
- Yeah, thanks, Joe.
- Mm.
See you later.
Mm.
Mm.
Mm.
What was that for? Just 'cause.
Uh-uh.
I got her.
Yeah, you do.
Ah, yes, the sugary pastry.
I think as far as avoiding your feelings goes, cinnamon bun was a solid choice.
You look nice.
Yeah, well, I think Bruce burned all my clothes, so Hmm.
Why don't you want to investigate your dad's death certificate? Because if it's true if he has been alive this whole time I just means he didn't want to see me.
Step 27: Accept that she isn't the love of your life because if she were, she'd still be in it.
- Pretty deep for Ralph Dibny.
- Yeah.
Granted it took him 26 swings before he could hit the ball.
I don't know I think he might of knocked out of the park with that one.
Gipsy isn't the one.
I know that.
And there's no amount of new clothes or crazy makeover distraction that can change that fact.
Because some truths you can only hide for so long.
The truth is, it's too late for me to change things with her.
But it's not too late for you.
It's not too late for you to change things with your dad.
But what if he doesn't want anything to do with me.
Maybe he doesn't.
But wouldn't you rather face that truth instead of spending the rest of your life wondering? - Is this part of my training? - Just watch.
- Schway, is that you? - Yeah.
A few weeks after I got my powers.
OG Flash.
God, look at you move.
Yeah, just wait for it.
And this.
And this.
- Yeah.
- Oh! It takes time to hone your skills, Nora.
You can't just can't just skip rungs on a ladder or jump right to the big stuff.
It's not how it works.
All right, that's enough of that.
Look, when you first got here you said that you weren't a great speedster.
But obviously neither was I when I first started.
Um, do you think one day I will be great like you? You punched out a satellite while I was falling to the earth and on fire.
And you were moving so fast even I couldn't see who you were.
- Yeah, that was pretty epic.
- Yeah.
I'm sorry I didn't listen to you today.
I just wanted to make you proud.
Sometimes for people with our abilities the most impressive feat is restraint.
I want what's mine, Vanessa.
Now step aside.
Because you brought a bigger gun this time? Not happening.
- You sure about that? - Yeah.
I'm sure.
Hey, guys.
Any luck with Block? Nothing.
No.
Anything at the lab? Uh, maybe.
It's still a little too early to tell.
Unit 7-5-2 requesting a 10-61.
- What is that? - Nothing.
An officer requesting to go on a coffee break.
Not having our satellites is killing us.
I mean, we can't scan the city for dark matter we don't have facial recognition.
All we'd need to do is see if there any pockets of compressed air around the city and we'd have her.
You mean gauging atmospheric pressure like a barometer? Yeah, but it would have to be a big barometer.
You mean like channel 52 Doppler radar relay? Yeah, I mean, Vanessa's blocks are constructed of highly dense air, so they'd have the same composition as an extreme atmospheric system.
So, we track the weather and we find her.
- That's so schway.
- Okay, yeah.
Let's do it, yeah.
- Go Team West-Allen.
- Yeah! Okay, look, there's a high-density low-pressure zone in a six block radius around Pacific and Davies.
Okay, cool.
All right, let's go.
Hey, maybe I should just stay here.
Or you could put some of that training to use.
Last chance, Vanessa.
To do what? Just give me the keys so I can drive my weapons out of here.
Come on.
Just hand them over nice and easy.
Yeah, right.
Light her up! You two.
I swear She's getting tired.
We got her.
Yeah, we did.
- Gotcha.
- Uh-oh.
- Uh-oh.
- Flash is trapped! What's wrong? What's happening? Barry's in trouble.
She gets tired.
Hey, blockhead! Try that on me! Bit off more than you could chew, huh? Well, my work here is done.
Looks like she's a regular chip off the ol' block.
- Am I - Don't.
Okay, yeah, I know.
Hey, hey, hey, hey.
Get her to a hospital.
XS! Now! Barry? What is it? - Who's there? - I don't know yet.
I just lost my speed.
- I got nothing.
- Negative, Ghost Rider.
Guys, I know we're three against one, but something tells me this guy's got the advantage.
Barry! What is that sound? Oh, my God.
Barry! Barry, you got get out of there right now! Dad! Dad.
- Dad, are you okay? - I'm okay.
I mean, this is definitely dark matter, but these levels of concentration are unlike like any dark matter levels I've ever seen before.
Yeah, well, that wasn't quite like any ass kicking I've ever gotten before either.
That dagger he had, I think that negated our powers.
And he control it too, like Mjolnir.
That's Thor's hammer.
I'm just glad you guys are okay.
This could've been a lot worst.
Yeah.
Careful.
Those cuts are pretty deep.
It could take a while for them to heal.
Cisco, that's not important right now.
Look, if you wanna know, this is your chance.
I support you either way, Caitlin.
I'm sorry.
I don't know what happened.
Caitlin, did you see something? Yeah, I did.
My mother.
Hey, guys.
Let's go.
Hey, we got a big problem.
So I talked to Captain Singh and he said that Gridlock was killed during his transport to Iron Heights.
- Gridlock's dead? - How? I'm not sure.
I interviewed everyone that was there and no one knows.
But I did some digging What the hell is that? Stay where you are! Freeze! Don't move! Okay, so what are we looking for here? Not looking.
Listening.
It sounds like the guy who just attacked us.
Sounds like an insect.
Yeah, it does.
- Like a - Like a cicada.
Who's Cicada?
