While Harry and Wally get to work on upgrading Cisco’s vibe gear, Harry heavily implies that he’s dying from some illness but makes Wally promise not to tell Jesse because he wants her to follow her happiness to Earth-1.

For one thing, the whole premise required a pretty sizable suspension of disbelief.

Barry, Jessie Quick and Jay Garrick slow down time when a … Grodd, who knows Barry’s weaknesses, takes control of Joe’s mind and compels him to kill himself with his own gun.
work through sheer force of will. This is a frightening prospect not only because Barry can’t seem to defeat Grodd for good, but because this means that he didn’t change the future and Iris’ life is still in danger. The battle ends with Barry asking a triumphant Solivar to show mercy by leaving Grodd on their Earth and returning with his army to Earth-2.

"Cause and XS" is one of the more disappointing additions to Season 5, as the premise of this episode held so much potential. He might be mentoring Wally, but he’s still learning how to be hero, too, which is clear from the many frustrating mistakes we’ve seen him make recently.

Meanwhile, Wally goes a Big Belly Burger run for Jesse and ends up running into Savitar, which can’t be good.

Still, it did feel as though more could have been done with Nora’s repeated hour from Hell.

It’s never great when your core conflict hinges on a character behaving very, very stupidly. The fact that Nora finally breaking down and spilling the beans was enough to immediately fix the situation makes the whole premise seem that much more flimsy. There was something weird about Tom Cavanagh’s portrayal of Harry, who was grumpier than usual, but that’s a quibble. But whether because of a lack of room or just an under-cooked plot, "Cause and XS" failed to replicate the charm of that beloved comedy classic. Once they’re done, Cisco does his thing and finds out where Grodd plans on attacking. On one hand, it was satisfying to see the Barry-less Team Flash put their head together and come up with a plan to outsmart Cicada where everyone’s powers came into play.

His fear about losing Iris if he can’t stop the invasion causes him to ponder the unthinkable: killing Grodd. ", Here Are The Games Coming Out in March 2020.

Like Gypsy, Joe got a glimpse inside of Grodd’s head while he was under his control, so Harry suggests they use magnets to recover those lost memories, because science! Having beaten Grodd, Harry accepts Jesse’s decision to stay on Earth-1 and returns home, and Gypsy returns to Earth-19, but not before planting one hell of a kiss on Cisco. After Jesse storms off, Cisco and the rest of the team tease Harry about what just happened as he turns on the device, which puts Joe into a trance and allows him to draw a portrait of the man he saw in Grodd’s head.

The payoff to this latest confrontation with Cicada proved fairly mixed. It’s been a while since the show has embraced the optimism of its premise, so it was nice to see both Barry and Gyspy step up to the plate. On the other, the end result is basically identical to last week’s episode. It failed to mine enough humor or drama out of its repetition.

At that very moment, Grodd and his army are casually yet menacingly hanging out on a cliff overlooking Central City.
The Flash tries and fails to pay tribute to Groundhog Day in "Cause and XS. I look at you out there battling the darkness with honor and hope…” — Wells to Barry. It makes sense that Barry would consider it here because not only is the fate of Central City at stake, but so is Iris’ life. Although I didn’t find tonight’s episode as exhilarating as last week’s, I thought it did a pretty good job of picking up the threads of part one, particularly when it came to the importance of hope. The execution is where “Cause and XS” fell flat. But before the good times can really roll, Gypsy comes through a breach in the speed lab and attacks Team Flash. That’s why they’re so inspiring both to us and to the citizens they protect.

just to stop her from moving to Earth-1. I’ll admit that the possibility of Joe dying was the scariest part of this episode, and the scene succeeds in making Grodd feel even more threatening despite the fact that his physical presence is kept to a minimum (probably for budgetary reasons) until the very end of the episode. But, hey, at least we have the big Gorilla Grodd/King Shark showdown to look forward to in a couple weeks. Gypsy acquiesces, infusing more optimism into the episode, and helps Cisco recruit Solivar, who travels back to Earth-1 with them to kick Grodd’s butt in a video game cutscene-esque CGI battle of gorillas.

Conceptually, this episode is sound enough.

Barry’s warning to Nora at least helped end things on a more foreboding note. The last thing she remembers is tracking a breacher to Earth-2’s Africa.

On The Flash Season 5 Episode 14, Nora races to save her mother as Iris lands in serious danger, and Barry puts the finishing touches on the metahuman cure.

In tonight’s episode, Barry learns one of the most important superhero lessons as he faces off with Grodd and protects his city: Heroes always find another way. Unfortunately, try as it might, this episode couldn’t replicate that film’s appeal. Gypsy wakes up in a pipeline cell and has no idea how she got there. The Flash was so easy to love in its first season because hope and optimism were at the center of the story, and it’s nice to see the show return to its roots in these past two episodes.
