If you thought The Flash and Joe already make an awesome team, it becomes a lot more awesome-r now that Eddie is aware of the velvet speedster's identity. But having this kind of knowledge comes risks.
Somewhere near Hudson University, a professor named Lindsey Kang enters her car only to discover there were bees hiding inside the air vents, killing her instantly. The following day, Barry is hesitant to get the blood sampling from the victim's body done at S.T.A.R. Labs due to his decreasing lack of trust in Dr. Wells, but Joe advices him to do otherwise in order to maintain the 'natural order' of things, if you get what I mean. The samples quickly reveal that the professor died of Honeybee Toxin. Like Cisco, I am terrified of bees despite knowing how incredibly useful they are to society, but "ain't nobody got time for bees". What's strange about Ms. Kang's death is 1) there are no stingers on the body, and 2) the bees have a significant increase in toxin.
With that kind of information, Cisco (and I) should definitely invest in a bee suit.
Speaking of suits, the A.T.O.M. and Felicity make a sudden appearance at the labs. He still has to work on his landing, though. Anyways, their reason for being there is that he needs to work on his suit, and who can be better than Cisco?
Just letting you know that I am a huge fan of Olicity (Oliver and Felicity), but she and Ray are totes adorable, too.
One of my favorite things about the adorable blonde is that she knows how to give advice, even if the recipient is unwilling to hear any of it, and that she can usually always tell if something is wrong. She tries to get some information out of Barry when they head out to get some coffee at Jitters until Eddie unintentionally interrupts because he needs some serious help, too. With her help, they plan a dinner date. Unfortunately for Barry, he's the awkward fifth wheel.
Iris is one of those women who constantly wants to know what's going on. In this case, she wants to know if her bae is associated with The Flash, but he knows that he can't mention it because he wants to keep her safe.
Sound familiar, Popwrappers?
For those who have seen Smallville, she acts exactly like Lana Lang, which can be annoying at times. I say at times because while I find it troublesome, I can see why they want to know what's going on.
At the labs, a new bromance is growing. #RayCo or #CiscoY
At one point, he 'remembered' what happened in the other timeline. However, they got an alert of the bees' next victim at Folston Tech.
Upon arriving, The Flash is soon attacked by a enormous swarm of bees that come of Bill Carlisle's, a new robotics recruit at Folston tech, mouth. He barely manages to survive, and it's all thanks to a defibrillator in his suit.
People with lots of money can do lots of things like reserve an entire restaurant--and that is exactly what Ray did. What was supposed to be a fun night out speedily turns awkward when Iris drops massive bombs on Eddie and vice versa. In addition, Barry looks like he was about to burst. Good thing Felicity is there for him, but it looks like the Eddie and Iris ship is sinking drastically.
It's Cisco's worse nightmare when a bee attacks the Labs. It's not any normal bee - it's a robotic - and they got a Queen Bee. The Queen turns out to be Brie Larvan, a former employee at Mercury Labs. A brilliant roboticist who originally created those bees for agricultural purposes, but changed her mind. The two victims were the ones who ratted, and bam! It's pretty obvious why Brie is in search for revenge.
The things about having friends is that they should be there for you; Felicity continues to push this idea on Barry in hopes that he could open up to them instead of bottling it all in. In turn, he tries to talk to Iris about Eddie. While it's the sweetest thing for anyone to do, Iris remains firm in her position, even going as far as to threaten what's left of their relationship.
At the labs, Caitlin and Felicity have a moment together in which Felicity says that dating Ray is like dating Barry, but has the body of Oliver. This moment doesn't last long when they find out that Brie intends on attacking Dr. McGee, the lady in charge of Mercury Labs. A.T.O.M. heads off in the direction of Mercury Labs while The Flash speeds off to the Queen Bee's hive. The A.T.O.M. manages to destroy them by going into the ocean. As for The Flash, Felicity assists him by attempting to 'take control' of the bees. However, Brie is pretty darn good with electronics herself, causing Felicity to call her as her nemesis.
Here's the scoreboard:
Brie: 0 and going to jail
Just when things are beginning to get better, Cisco takes a bee for Caitlin and Ray, knocking him out in the process. It's a good thing The Flash learned something from his first encounter: he creates electricity in his hands to uses it as a defibrillator.
The next day, Tina McGee comes by Barry's lab to thank him. Barry, on the other hand, uses this as a way to unearth more information regarding Wells, but there wasn't much. Later on, Barry decides to open up to his colleagues on his suspicion of Dr. Wells. Caitlin doesn't seem to believe that Dr. Wells = Reverse Flash, but Cisco is more inclined towards this since he's been having 'dreams' of the Reverse Flash killing him.
Before Ray and Felicity headed back home, he discovered his solution for his suit problem: go smaller.
Are you sad to see Ray and Felicity go, Popwrappers? Stick with me for next week's episode of The Flash!
