When Jesse Quick (guest star Violett Beane) informs the team that her father (Tom Cavanagh) has been abducted, Barry (Grant Gustin), Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker), Cisco (Carlos Valdes) and Julian (Tom Felton) voyage to Earth-2 on a rescue mission to save Harry from Gorilla City. As they trek through the forest, Barry and the team are immediately captured and brought to Grodd (voiced by David Sobolov). Grodd tells them he needs their help to stop Solovar (voiced by Keith David), the leader of Gorilla City, as Solovar wants to invade Earth-1. Meanwhile, back on Earth-1, Jesse and Kid Flash (Keiynan Lonsdale) hit the streets to stop a metahuman that can control gravity, with H.R. and Joe (Jesse L. Martin) guiding them from S.T.A.R. Labs.

I loved most of the episode, mainly because of seeing Gorilla City and Grodd again.

I absolutely HATED their escape plan. It was so stupid, made absolutely zero sense. The whole plan hinged on Grodd removing Barry from the cage, after thinking he's dead? Why would Grodd do such a thing? Or why wouldn't Grodd make sure he was dead by breaking his neck or something? And then while in the frost induced coma, Barry is apparently still able to hear them say "Grodd's gone now". And then he literally zooms away carrying like 5 people. Super Strength isn't one of Barry's powers. There is literally no way he could've carried all 5 like that.

Now we come to the cringe worthy Wally and Jessie relationship. It feels incredibly forced. No chemistry whatsoever.

Loved the fight between Flash and Solovar. And loved seeing Solovar.

Looks like the Liberal Elite of Exisle have finally managed to silence the last remaining Conservative voice on the board.

During this episode I got the strangest feeling that the reintroduction of Jesse wasn't innocuous.


I feel that the show writers feel they have to give some pay-off to this build up to Iris's oncoming date with death. What if they pay-off is a major death? And not just someone more tangentially related to the good guys? Some who has gotten relatively lots of screen time? With the shift of focus on Jesse coming back into their orbits, possibly on-going, I was wondering if Jesse could be on the chopping block with them changing the future. You'd think the team would use all the help they could get, but when Barry was in the future there was no sign of any other speedsters.

I suppose we'll have to see if Jesse sticks around at the end of next episode or decides to go back to her Earth. Not that that would exclude for sure exclude her from danger, but I imagine they would want to make the impact greater by spending more time on Jesse, and her relationship with Wally.
