Season 1/ Episode 10/
Barry Allen is back and running on the west side highway in Central City but it is not all good from where we left off a a month ago. Barry got his ass MOLLY WHOPPED by the honey mustard flash (I’m not going to stop calling him that). Barry ain’t the fastest in the game no more. So what he do? He breaks out the Nintendo track and field pad to get them experience points up. He pushing himself against Cisco’s drone (non government issue) in order to get his speed up. Barry got the Need For Speed : Hot Pursuit on his mind as the drone is set to God Mode difficulty. It ain’t a blue shell tho soo.
Meanwhile, we see the garage door of a wall freezing and what appears to be either Superfly’s or Dollemite’s Cadillac crash through it. Leonard Snart (Captain Cold) hops out the whip fresh as fuck and this time he’s joined by his boy Mick Rory.
They’ve broken into a customs warehouse filled with more imported cars than your favorite The Fast and The Furious film. Snart ain’t here to move these whips though. He’s waiting on the police to arrive. Mick pulls out a case with which I assume contains his burner but Snart tells him Snart telling him to hold that noise down cause they waiting on The Flash to arrive… aaaaaaaand a good minute later he doesn’t. Snart got the confused screw face on thinking “WTF?” He tells Mick they bouncing and Mick looking at these whips thinking “We really not about to steal none of these million dollars cars?”.
Barry peeps the crime scene and knows (I assume by all the icicles left around) that this is Snart’s work. Back at their hide out Mick is fed uuuuuuuuuup. He telling Snart, “So this is what we do now? Break into places and not take shit? I dunno anybody that ever got guap of that but what do I know right? Fuck me right?. Snart then lays out the plan to steal a painting called “Fire and Ice” which is worth 25 million. Pause. Who the fuck decided to go so hard in the not so subtle to give the painting that name? For real this is the equivalent to when Edward Nigma was on Gotham holding a cup with a question mark. You’re better than that guys… come on.
Barry is ready to square up against Snart since he feeling fucking froggy and trying to leap all up in Central City. Wells tells Barry to calm that down. That if he keeps focusing on his training instead Snart will get bored and leave…Barry tries to it Joe with that I’ma let that shit breathe logic and gets the “the fuck is this” retort face.
At the West house we see its move in day as Iris is clearing her stuff out to live with Eddie. Joe West finds an old stuffed turtle of Iris’ that he hide cause she broke his Duke Ellington record when she was younger… Iris, you broke bruh’s record tho? My dad wouldn’t have taken my shit away, he’d have repoed my life. You got off easy. Barry stops by and the awkward is so thick in the air as Iris bounces. Barry tells Joe he let Iris know how he feels. Joe said, “You did what now? Loooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooort…. I’ma let you finish but you know Iris ain’t coming back to clean up this mess soooo…if you could just”
Meanwhile Caitlin is out following up on some research on Firestorm (an acronym for a project dealing with transmutation) which leads her to talking to Jason Rusch (Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaas Jason cameo Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaasssss) who tells her shit is crazy right now. The government ran their shit and the dude behind the plans was Professor Stein. Back at STAR Labs Cisco came up with a way to take out Captain Cold and Mick whom he calls…
Since Cold’s gun reaches absolute zero and Heatwave’s reaching the critical boiling point they can cancel on another out if they cross streams… Yes and I know what movie you’re going to say and it’s covered.
YOOOO SNART ALL UP IN THE CAMERA LIKE A HYPE WILLIAMS VIDEO THO!! HE CALLING FLASH OUT HIS NAME AND ALL THAT SHIT LIKE CENTRAL CITY BRINGING BACK THE SOURCE AWARDS. He told Flash where to meet them to get stomped out or Caitlin doesn’t make it to season 2. This would have only been better if Snart had the Funk Flex bomb sound effect dropping after each bar he said.
“Yo Flash. Ya website is trash *bomb sfx* That blog Iris made for you is trash! It does no numbers *bomb sfx*”-Captain Cold
Flash showed up on the scene but couldn’t do much but out run Cold and Heatwave’s advanced super soakers. It got to a point Flash was catching them beams nasty. My man was running up buildings trying to get his plan to work to no avail. At one point Eddie had to grab a shield and step in to prevent flash from catching the fade. Barry got Eddie’s ass out then realized the best way to beat them was slowing down…and apparently getting hit so they would cross streams.
Barry decides to move back in with Joe which helps him when he needs to duck out. Barry moving back in was the most heart warming scene in the episode. Woulda only been better if Joe told Barry his ass would be paying rent.
The Icyhot Boyz are being transported to prison till we see that Snart even had a plan for this shit. The transport comes to a halt and we see that Snart’s plan has only just begun to take place as his sister comes and bails them out. Female villain tiiiiiiiiime!
