The Flash (S03E10) “Borrowing Problems From the Future”

This episode, I will say was interesting but it doesn’t matter I still have a bad feeling about what will come to be in the next 4 months for Iris West fate. But this episode was all about trying to change those events that will happen sometime in May. But I will get to that in a bit. And we got our first look at the beautiful and amazing Jessica Camacho’s character Gypsy at the ending of the episode.

In this episode: Barry (Grant Gustin) awakes from another nightmare of seeing Iris (Candice Patton) being murdered by Savitar (Andre Tricotreux). When Barry gets notice about a fire he almost doesn’t want to go but to just stay with Iris in bed. Iris encourages him to go and save the day. When Barry and Wally (Keiynan Lonsdale) get to the scene they see Detective Patterson (Greg Grunberg) trapped in the fire. Barry and Wally work together to get Patterson out of the flaming building.

After Patterson is saved and the speedsters speed back to Star Labs; H.R. (Tom Cavanagh) has a surprise for them and wishes for them to come and see the Hall of the Museum of Star Labs. Barry and Cisco (Carlos Valdes) are sort of impressed by what H.R. had done with the place but they have an issue with Olga (Lindsay Maxwell) because shes a new face and doesn’t want her to stumble upon something like the flash suit, etc. When the hologram of Cisco comes online the team, especially Cisco is very distraught about the whole idea of having Cisco sounding not like himself with the hologram.

Barry then gets an alert about a robbery in progress, when Barry gets to the location to stop the robbery. He finds out its Plunder (Stephen Huszar) [who in the future is serving a life time sentence in Iron Heights after the Flash puts him there] Barry then gets distracted and Plunder gets away. When Barry is distracted at Star Labs he gets encouraged to try to stop Plunder again which he gets the chance to when he tries to rob a hotel. Barry works on trying to stop Plunder but ends up having to run for his life from futuristic tracking bullets when Barry phases through a concrete wall which stops the bullets he then tries stopping Plunder but then Wally stops Plunder instead.

After Barry chews out Wally making him feel bad for helping Barry; Barry then takes Iris to the time vault, he shows her an article from the future ‘Flash Vanishes World in Crisis by Julie Greer’ Barry then explains that the article used to be written by Iris West-Allen. Iris then thinks maybe she quit her job but Barry then tells the truth about Savitar killing her in the future but its only a one in million possibilities that could happen in the future. Barry and Iris then choose to tell the team about what Barry saw in the future, Barry then gets the idea about going back to find out any news bi-lines that might help them try stopping the events that lead up to Iris’s death.

Barry and Cisco then use his vibe powers to take Barry back to the events that Barry went to the future. When they reveal the bi-lines they reveal Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) is Killer Frost and is at large. Joe West is at City Hall, and there were others. After Barry and Cisco witness Savitar killing Iris once again they chose to end the vibe. Barry and Wally then get word from Joe (Jesse L. Martin) Plunder has escaped from prison. Barry then knows where Plunder is and asks for Wally’s help. After Wally and Barry chase Plunder through the streets Wally finally catches Plunder and sends him back to jail.

In the end of the episode: Gypsy (Jessica Camacho) jumps through a breech and is now on the hunt for H.R.
