Warning: spoilers forward for the sixth episode of The Flash Season four, known as “When Harry Met Harry…”
The Flash has been dealing with its supervillain quite differently in Season four, and never simply because the massive unhealthy this time round is not a speedster. The Thinker, a.ok.a. Clifford DeVoe, has been ten steps forward of Group Flash all season, and so they spent the primary a number of episodes chasing after his metahumans with out cottoning on to the truth that there’s one man pulling all of the strings. Elongated Man lastly dropped the name “DeVoe” a few weeks in the past, and now The Flash has superior the Thinker plot in an enormous means: Group Flash positioned his lair.
We discovered final week that the Thinker is definitely capable of depart his lair in his high tech chair, so it appeared possible that his preliminary assembly with Group Flash would come about on their turf fairly than his personal. In “When Harry Met Harry,” the Harrison Wells of Earth-2 was capable of recruit the assistance of his doppelgangers from different Earths within the multiverse to assist work out a psychological and logistical profile for the mysterious DeVoe. Whereas Barry was attempting to show Ralph learn how to be a hero as Elongated Man, the Council of Wells and Cisco have been making an attempt to slim down the seek for the suitable DeVoe. After they in the end discovered DeVoe’s handle, Barry determined that Group Flash ought to go after him themselves fairly than contain the Central Metropolis Police Division.
The shock got here when Group Flash did not uncover a supervillain, his crony, and his high tech lair on the handle. As a substitute, the Mechanic was dressed and styled like a civilian, and she or he opened the door of what regarded like a wonderfully regular suburban home. She was joined by her wheelchair-bound husband Clifford, who simply so occurred to be the Thinker in common garments, with no headpiece of wires hooked up to his head, and searching like nothing greater than a person in his completely regular home.
Apparently, “When Harry Met Harry” was the primary time that we actually noticed the Thinker and the Mechanic disagreeing in an enormous means. The Mechanic appeared to imagine that Group Flash was shifting too shortly in monitoring them down, whereas the Thinker appeared fairly assured that he was an excessive amount of smarter and had too many benefits for Group Flash to pose him any actual risk. From what The Flash has proven thus far with regard to the Thinker, his conceitedness would be the solely flaw for Group Flash to use if they are going to defeat him. After all, the discord between the Mechanic and the Thinker might be attention-grabbing if it progresses by Season four, but it surely’s too quickly to say what’s in retailer with their dynamic.
You’ll be able to catch new episodes of The Flash on Tuesdays at eight p.m. ET on The CW. There are nonetheless some metas made by the Thinker wandering round, so Group Flash will in all probability have their fingers full for some time. The massive four-show crossover will hit the airwaves in a few weeks, and the promo indicates that we’re in for a doozy of an occasion because the heroes of The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, Arrow, and Supergirl be a part of forces.
