so she doesn't turn out like her father.
So, Miss West, can you explain what effect So, Miss West, can you explain what effect these conditions had on the Sheldon County Airport? these conditions had on the Sheldon County Airport? The facility was hit by winds The facility was hit by winds ranging from 150 to 250 miles per hour.
ranging from 150 to 250 miles per hour.
Wow, that's That is pretty dangerous.

I would say that is pretty lucky indeed.
I would say that is pretty lucky indeed.
Your Honor, the prosecution rests.
Your Honor, the prosecution rests.
So that's it? You're not gonna ask me anything else? Well, it would appear so.
Mr.
Lee, I think you're up.
Miss West, is my client a meta-human? No, but she used meta-tech.
Specifically a weather staff that was corrupted by dark matter.
So one could say it was the staff, not my client, that attacked the Sheldon County Airport that night? No, one couldn't.
She used that staff.
But isn't this just an ordinary weather staff corrupted by dark matter? These are your words.
- Yes, but - And since dark matter was able to corrupt a tool and turn it into a weapon of destruction, isn't it also possible it could corrupt the defendant? No.
Dark matter doesn't make you do things.
She pointed lightning at a hangar full of scared families.
Your Honor, there were little kids in that hangar.
Did you know that that lightning is five times hotter than the surface of the sun? That is the kind of power that the defendant unleashed upon those people.
[SCOFFS] She did this.
This was her choice, and she can't be trusted.
No, Miss West, you must sit down.
- I know, but, Your Honor - [GAVEL BANGING] - Sit down! - No! She's right.
I'm guilty, and I should pay for what I did.
- What you doing? - Get a load of this.
You know those shards you removed? I ran a biochemical analysis on them and the tissue from my hands.
You know how to do that? I picked up a thing or two from Caitlin Snow MD over the years, and I found this.
[COMPUTER BEEPING] That's my tissue right after I got sliced.
Mm-hmm.
That's from today.
Almost all the dark matter is gone.
The shards weren't dampening my powers.
They were removing them.
So the dagger has anti-dark matter properties.
Yes! Cisco, if we can synthesize that into a serum, we could get rid of Cicada's powers entirely.
And not just his powers, everyone's.
- Everyone's? - Caitlyn, we could make a meta-human cure.
You think we need a meta-human cure? Don't you? Um Okay, maybe not.
But I seem to remember a time when you did? Sure, when I first discovered Killer Frost, I wanted to get rid of her.
But when she was gone, it felt like a piece of me was missing.
Besides, we have seen meta-human powers do really good things.
Okay, yeah! If you can build an ice bridge to avoid rush hour traffic, but what if my existence gives everyone around me radiation poisoning like "Fallout"? Those metas, we created them against their will.
No, Thawne created the particle accelerator and he sabotaged it.
And who shattered the satellite full of dark matter and created God knows how many metas? We did that.
This cure could give meta-humans a second chance at having a normal life.
Maybe not everyone wants a normal life, Cisco.
[OMINOUS MUSIC] [ENGINE REVVING] [TIRES SQUEALING] Watch out! [TIRES SCREECHING] [BRAKES SQUEALING] Who does this lady think she is? [DEVICE BEEPING] - [PULSATING] - [LOCKS CLICKING] What the hell? [GRUNTING] Who are you? Your ride.
Let's go.
So Joss Jackam never made it to Iron Heights.
Nope, and the transport driver said that the woman who took her used something that completely shut down his truck.
Pause.
That.
Look familiar? Ugh, another piece of satellite shard.
So the fob is the meta-tech? Yeah, probably sends out some kind of dark matter pulse that overrides any guidance system in seconds.
So as long as she has an engine, she can control it and we still don't even know who we're looking for.
Maybe we do.
Hey, can you fast-forward? Stop.
Yeah, look, that salute.
She's definitely military.
Okay, let's run that face through the DOD database.
[COMPUTER BEEPING] Raya Van Zandt.
Former air force, ace pilot, mechanic, and expert in vehicle operations.
She was dishonorably discharged.
Call sign was Silver Ghost.
Huh? The rest of her military record was sealed.
Okay, well, I'm gonna see if my dad can call in a favor and maybe we can get a copy.
Yeah, and in the meantime, it looks like we have two bad girls to track down.
I'm not so sure, Nora.
I mean, Cecile said that she could feel Joss' remorse.
Come on, Mom.
That was a show.
I mean, do you think this escape was a coincidence? Uh, well, we don't know yet, Nora.
Yes, we do.
Raya got that fob to break Joss out of the prison transport.
I guarantee you Joss is a part of this.
How do you know that? Because bad people don't change.
[COMPUTER BEEPS] Hey, guys, any way you could send down some food? Welcome to home base.
Home base of what? The Young Rogues.
There's been enough old men running this town.
Our turn.
I have my eyes on a few candidates, but for this job, plan on it just being you and me.
Um, I'm not planning anything! I don't even know who you are! Just take me back! You ever heard of A.
R.
G.
U.
S.
? It's an off-the-grid facility primed with bleeding-edge tech, and it's protected by one of the most advanced security systems on Earth.
The only thing that can short it out is a billion jolts of electricity.
So a few bolts of lightning.
You're the Weather Witch, right? Beneath this wall is the facility's power junction.
You hit that and we have a four-minute window to get something that will make us unstoppable.
No, look, even if I was gonna help you, and I'm not, I need my weather staff to control any of that, and right now, that is in police holdup.
So if you could just take me back.
Okay.
[CLEARS THROAT] To do what? Turn myself in.
I see.
You don't want to be like your dad.
I get that, but it's too late.
You're a criminal.
So am I.
And those people out there, trust me, all they think is, "Like father, like daughter.
" But I guess you need to find that out for yourself, don't you? [SIGHS] [DRAMATIC MUSIC] Find me when you do.
Thank you.
- Well right.
- Yeah.
[CLEARS THROAT] That will hold you until you get out oh! [SLURPING] Uh, can I ask you a question? Uh, do you have a minute? - Yeah.
- [CHUCKLES] Yes, you're not going anywhere.
So, um, last year, you came out of the Speed Force and you were writing a kind of a symbol language.
Do you remember that? - Yeah, I remember.
- And apparently, Cisco could only translate one of these phrases.
Right? So far, yeah.
I mean, Gideon couldn't even do it.
Gideon.
Right, Gideon.
So what do you think that language was? I don't know.
It was some kind of, uh, chronolinguistics.
Chronolinguistics that you got from your time in the Speed Force, which is all time at once, right? Past, present, future.
What do you think this language was? Future, maybe? Why? Is this about Cicada? Cicada? No, no.
No, It's just, um le mystère, huh? I'm a detective.
I see mystery everywhere, so - Uh-huh.
- Uh, all right.
Thank you.
See you next time.
Okay oh! Ah, before I forget, the Legends, uh, dropped off some, um, books to help you pass the time.
- Huh.
- "Uncaged Desire.
" Your kind of caged desire.
- Hope you enjoy it.
- Huh.
- See you next time.
- Thanks.
Yeah, probably not very good.
See you! [SIREN BLARING] What is it? According to Doppler, it's a hurricane in Central City.
No, it's not a hurricane.
It's Joss.
I'm on it.
[WHOOSHING] What, no Flash today? Figured he wasn't needed to stop a fake hurricane.
Guess we can add damaging private property to your résumé.
Look, I just need your help.
Oh, stop with the sorry act.
That ended when your friend helped you escape.
She is not my buddy, and I did not escape.
Look, I want to turn myself back in.
Oh, you really expect me to believe that? My dad is the career criminal, not me.
I just I want to show everybody that I'm not the person that they think I am.
Then what do you need me for? You're a hero.
If you vouch for me, people will know that I'm telling the truth.
Look, I will tell you everything.
I'll even show you where that woman took me.
Just give me a chance.
If anyone asks, you never saw this.
Thank you, Major Morgan.
Please tell the lieutenant general that my dad and I owe him one.
[WHOOSHING] Special delivery.
One Weather Witch.
What? I thought you were gonna help me.
I'm trying to turn myself in.
No, I-I didn't escape.
I-I was kidnapped.
Will you please tell them? Sorry, I don't trust criminals.
She's all yours.
No! No, no! This is a misunderstanding! This is unfair! If I could just talk to her, please! [WHOOSHING] [DRAMATIC MUSIC] [EXHALES HEAVILY] Your father does the exact same thing.
When something's on his mind, he runs.
Nothing's on my mind, Mom.
I got to take a look at Raya Van Zandt's DOD file.
Oh, yeah, did you find the connection between her and Joss? Well, there doesn't seem to be one.
Really? Yeah, she left the air force after a failed mission overseas, and then she spent two months on desk duty, and then she was dishonorably discharged.
[SCOFFS] But it seems like she has a pretty good service record.
Exactly, so clearly the DOD had egg on its face and Raya became its scapegoat.
I'm just saying, Nora, not everyone is as bad as they seem.
Raya, Joss.
I think everyone deserves a second chance.
If you don't believe me, ask your father.
He gives more second chances than anyone I've ever met.
[MACHINE BUZZING] Come on.
Come on.
Yes.
Yes! Yes, yes, yes! - [KEYBOARD KEYS CLACKING] - [COMPUTER BEEPING] Yes! [COMPUTER BEEPING] What the hell are you doing? What the hell are you doing? Well, I was distilling dark matter ore from Cicada's dagger shards.
But I can't really do that anymore, can I? Whoops.
Why did you do that? You're smart.
You can figure it out.
When are you gonna figure out that a meta-cure could actually help people? Listen, I heard all about it, short stuff.
But you know what? Caity and I, we're doing just fine, and so were you until Cicada got all up in your head.
Don't do that.
This isn't just about me.
Oh, the hell it isn't! And and you know what? I get it.
He tried to kill you.
You're trying to create something that'll save us all.
Yeah, I am! All of us! Barry, Iris, Nora, they have a family.
Even you and Caitlyn have your weird little family.
But what about my family? I want a wife to grow old with.
I want a kid.
And I don't want them to wonder all the time if their dad is in trouble, if he's even gonna make it home tonight.
Cisco, you don't have to choose between having powers and having a family.
Yeah? Well, some of us do.
I'm not the Flash.
I don't want to be the Flash.
I want to be me.
A cure is the only way.
Or it was.
What? Oh, come on, girl.
[SIGHS] You're reading Mick's book? This is surprisingly well-written.
What's going on? [SIGHS] Just having a hard time believing some people can change.
How come? 'Cause after everything that you've seen, don't you think that bad people stay bad? Not always.
When I first met Leonard Snart, he was a criminal.
Probably the worst criminal in the city.
But I You know, I knew that there was a good person in there somewhere, and look at him.
Turned out to be a Legend.
Died a hero.
If he can change, anyone can.
You really believe that? Yeah.
I do.
What about Eobard Thawne? I think part of being a hero is being able to see the good in people.
So yeah, maybe someday in the future even Thawne could change.
Besides, if we don't believe in people, who will? [SIREN WAILING] [TENSE MUSIC] [SIRENS WAILING] Very funny! [SIRENS WAILING] I got 595s! [SIRENS WAILING IN DISTANCE] We got a lot of vehicles! Let's go.
Copy that.
Suit up! We've got multiple 595s in our own parking lot! Get out there quick! Requesting more backup! We've got a lot! What are you doing here? Doing what no one else is gonna do for you Offer you a second chance Weather Witch.
That's it.
That's where the power junction is.
Give it everything you got.
[DRAMATIC MUSIC] [THUNDER BOOMING] [LIGHTNING CRACKLING] - What the hell was that? - I don't know, sir.
But it knocked out security grids 41 through 60.
[SIREN BLARING] Ten years and $24 million later, the stealth automobile, AKA the SAM, was born.
Rumor has it that everything under its hood comes directly from WayneTech.
This is a $24-million prototype? What can it do? Let's find out.
[DEVICE BEEPS] [PULSATING] [EXCITING MUSIC] [GIGGLES] [LAUGHS] [ENGINE REVVING] Is it Joss or Raya? I'm guessing both because someone just stole a very expensive vehicle from A.
R.
G.
U.
S.
after a very precise lightning strike.
It's a next-gen prototype with all the bells and whistles.
If bells and whistles could explode and murder people.
And supposedly it's untrackable.
So how do we find it? - We don't search for the car.
- We search for them.
If Joss made lightning strike again, it means she has her staff.
Oh, so we can track the dark matter in it.
Nice! I got the location.
Okay, remember, Nora, whatever you do, don't touch the car while using your powers.
Hey, Caitlin, can I steal you for a second? [ENGINE REVVING] [WOMEN CHEERING] [LAUGHS] [TIRES SQUEALING] [TIRES SCREECHING] Joyride's over, Silver Ghost.
Joss, I need to talk to you.
Hard pass.
[TABLET BEEPING] [GRILLE CLICKING] [TABLET BEEPING] [MISSILE BEEPING] [GRUNTING] Got to love remote detonation.
[TIRES SQUEALING] [TIRES SQUEALING] Icy roads ahead.
Oh, my God.
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, Raya! - Raya! - [TABLET BEEPING] [TIRES SQUEALING] [GASPING] [TIRES SQUEALING] - [SIGHS] - [LAUGHS] Holy Buckaroo Banzai.
It phases? Whatever phase-trick they just used, it jammed our tracking.
We can't get a lock on them if she doesn't use that weather staff.
XS is gonna come after us.
Let her try.
[TABLET BEEPING] Hear no evil, see no evil.
We're invisible.
Hey, Cisco? Can you connect me to the car's comm system? No, but best I can do is have you send out radio waves, and if the car's nearby, it'll pick them up.
Do it.
[COMPUTER BEEPING] Joss? Joss, it's XS.
I hope you can hear me.
You tried to tell me something earlier.
You tried to tell me that you wanted to pay for the crimes that you committed.
You said you weren't a criminal like your father.
You asked me to give you a second chance, but I didn't listen.
Now I'm asking you for a second chance.
Joss, this isn't who you are.
[ENGINE REVVING] Nora, the car's headed straight for you.
I don't see anything.
[ICE CRACKLING] Nora, look out! [TIRES SQUEALING] How the hell did I lose control? [PULSATING] Hey, hold on to me.
This is gonna feel weird.
[TABLET BEEPING] Well, at least we got their wheels.
What's left of them.
Thanks for the last-minute rescue.
- For the what? - Icing up the road.
I didn't ice the road.
What? Who And time! 24 hours are up.
Okay, I double-checked with Caitlin, and there doesn't seem to be any unstable dark matter in your biometric scans.
Okay.
[SIGHS] [DRAMATIC MUSIC] [SIGHS] [CHUCKLES] Man, it feels good to be out of there.
We definitely missed you, Dad.
Sorry I haven't been able to help with everything.
Do we know where Joss and Raya are now? No, we got nothing yet.
But you were right about Joss.
She saved my life.
If she hadn't iced over the road But she did because you connected with her.
It's like Dad said, she just needed someone to believe in her.
Sounds like you found your own Leonard Snart.
Well, time might prove me wrong, but I think so.
I hope so.
I'm sorry I messed up your first day back.
It's all right, Nora.
There's always day two.
- I'm happy you're back.
- Thanks.
Hey do you wanna help me find Cisco? I gotta get this extrapolator thing recalibrated.
I went to go see Joe in Tibet, and I ended up in Fiji.
[CHUCKLING] Being a parent sure is hard sometimes.
Yeah, it is.
But there's nothing like it.
[SIGHS] [FOOTSTEPS TAPPING] Okay, well, we can't both be the basket case.
"We're all pretty bizarre.
Some of us are just better at hiding it.
" Come on, "Breakfast Club"? It's one of the only movies Killer Frost and I actually agree on.
Let me guess, she's into Bender? - Totally.
She loves him.
- Yeah, makes sense.
- I'd ship that.
- Put that on.
It's cold where we're going.
Your dad's old lab.
- Mm-hmm.
- Cool.
Caitlin, why did you bring me here? Because despite our last encounter with him, he did create a meta-gene.
So I was thinking that you could use his research to do the reverse.
Um, okay, don't look now, but if I didn't know any better, I'd say this feels a lot like you helping me make a meta-human cure.
I couldn't stop thinking about what you said about how a cure would give you a second chance at a normal life.
No friend would stand in the way of that.
But there is a difference between you standing in my way and you actively helping me.
I still think this is dangerous, but maybe if I'm involved, we can have some ground rules.
Like the first and most important, we will never, ever force a cure on anyone.
Okay.
Rule number one.
We're not just here to make a cure.
We're here to make a choice.
[WHOOSHING] Nora.
You either trust me, or you don't.
There's no in-between.
Fine.
- I don't trust you.
- [SCOFFS] But I'm willing to give you the chance to change my mind.
Well, that might take some time.
And time, as you may recall, is not on my side.
Minutes are minutes, seconds are seconds, and there's very few of them left.
[TIMER BEEPING] I want to believe that there is good inside of you somewhere, Thawne.
Let me prove there is.
Okay.
What's next? [PULSATING] [LIGHTS CLUNKING] [DEVICE WHIRS, BEEPS] Hello, Dr.
Wells.
Hello, Gideon.
I have access to all the files? - Right? - Of course.
Which files would you like me to locate? I would like you to locate the files from Nora West-Allen.
I'm sorry, Dr.
Wells, but all entries have been permanently deleted by Nora West-Allen.
