Ramsey (Sendhil Ramamurthy) is closer than ever to actualizing his dark potential. But to do it, he needs Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) on his side. And as seen in this preview of next week’s show, Bloodwork will present Barry with a very literal temptation. As showrunner Eric Wallace told us recently, “what’s great about [Ramsey’s] character is he has a really good point of view that when you hear it … it’s insane, but it kind of makes sense and that’s what’s tempting to Barry.” Does he possess a way to save everyone from the coming Crisis? With only two episodes remaining before the antimatter wave comes for our favorite Earths, Barry will have to discern the truth quickly.
Meanwhile, this week’s episode was fabulous, funny, and an early indication of what Ralph’s (Hartley Sawyer) life will be like once Sue Dearbon (Natalie Dreyfuss) makes her debut sometime in the new year. “Let’s just say that it’s a really Ralph-centric episode, to put it mildly,” Wallace said of her first story, which is currently in production. “We’ll pick up kind of directly from this.” He also teased the bad guys assembled for the auction may prove to be a bigger deal for Ralph and Team Flash when the season’s second story commences following Crisis. If that story can be lighter like this week’s episode, we’ll definitely be eager to watch. We’ve pretty much hit the breaking point on all this grief.
Also, we hope we get to see more of Cecile’s (Danielle Nicolet) new practice. She’s such a great pairing with just about every character on the show. Hopefully, she and Nash (Tom Cavanagh) will interact after Crisis.
The Flash airs Tuesdays on The CW.
