The Flash Recap ‘There Will Be Blood’
Barry has revealed the truth behind the coming crisis, and Team Flash isn’t processing the news very well. Cisco, especially, refuses to sit back and allow his best friend to die. The two have an argument that threatens to destroy their friendship, with Barry asking Cisco to help him save Ramsey’s life. Barry believes that Ramsey is doing important work, and he is a man that deserves to live.
Unfortunately, even with S.T.A.R. Labs delivering a “cure” to Ramsey, it doesn’t work. The doctor instead continues to examine Romero’s blood, realizing that the only way to have it attack the cancer cells in his blood, he has to feel fear. He also has to feed it. Ramsey attacks a hospital, attacking and feeding off the patients and doctors. Barry and Killer Frost answer the call. Ramsey uses the blood in his victims to bring them back to life and attack the heroes. They try to appeal to Ramsey, but he is too far gone. Ramsey kills one of the doctors before fleeing the hospital. With Ramsey out of range, his reanimated victims die again.
Back at S.T.A.R. Labs, Barry apologizes for the situation with Ramsey, but still believes that there is a way to save his life. It’s the least he can do before facing the crisis. Barry and Cisco make amends for the moment, Cisco saying he doesn’t want to have to continue living without his best friend. Then, we have the second gut-wrenching moment of the episode when Barry and Joe finally have a heart-to-heart about the whole situation. Joe tells Barry that the whole thing isn’t fair. Barry has given his everything to the city–the world–and yet he still must make the ultimate sacrifice. Barry says that he has been blessed with an amazing family and is lucky to have been the Flash.
While Team Flash was dealing with Ramsey, Nash Wells has been doing some investigating of his own. With some help from Barry and Cisco, he stole a piece of tech that allowed him to track the location of the Monitor. What is Nash up to? Is he trying to figure out some way to save Barry? He has been acting suspicious, but honestly, weren’t all the Wells a bit suspicious at first? We are getting closer and closer to the crisis and The Flash is certainly preparing us for the worst.
Next week’s episode is entitled ‘Kiss Kiss Breach Breach.’
