As the last episode came to a close we see Jesse Quick run through to Earth 1 with a warning about Grodd and Gorilla City. This episode opens with Harrison Wells "Harry" running through a wooded are and being attacked by what seems to be a gorilla.
After the opening scene we find out that Harry was invited to Gorilla city and his entire team was killed. We also find out that one of the headlines of the future was about the city recovering from a Gorilla Attack. The team quickly decides that they are traveling to Earth 2. Barry leaves Jesse and Wally behind to protect central city. Cisco, Kaitlyn, Barry and Julian go to Earth 2. So far the episode is moving fast, probably due to being part 1 of a 2 part episode. However even though with the fast moving episode it is good so far.
The group lands in Earth 2 right in front of Gorilla City which has been greatly updated since we last seen it back in season 2. After the group lands we see a conversation between Wally and Jesse. Wally senses something is wrong with Jesse but she doesn't reveal what Is wrong. The pair have to go stop a robbery in progress, Wally of course takes the lead and this seems to upset Jesse. We can tell that she is hiding something and hopefully soon it's revealed, tension and secrets between heroes is never a good thing.
Back on Earth 2 Barry and Team Flash are caught in a trap. The idea was to get Barry to Earth 2 to help Grodd to defeat another ape for him to save Earth 1. We also figure out what's going on with Jesse, she's missing Wally and upset that that can't be together because of his powers. Wally wants to be with her and hopefully they get it figured out, living on two different Earths is probably going to be difficult. I hope it works out!
Barry challenges the ape leader to a duel, and of course it is accepted. Salivar is the Ape leader and doesn't like humans, Barry is hell bent on saving Iris. I will also have to say the CG of this episode is great. Barry does defeat Salivar using a move from the Reverse Flash, except he doesn't kill him. Grodd is now the ruler of Gorilla City and is now attacking Central City. Harry wakes up and notices that everyone is imprisoned. Cisco comes up with an idea of Kaitlyn killing him to change the future, everyone disagrees.
Barry decided that he himself will play dead letting Kaitlyn freeze him to the point that he appears dead. Grodd pulls Barry out of his cell and this allows Barry and the team to escape back to Earth 1. I don't feel though that this will stop the Gorillas from attacking Central City on Earth 1. This may just anger them even more. The group celebrates the win in the end. Jesse and Wally also celebrate, with a kiss. Seems like the entire group is celebrating.
The episode closes with Grodd and Gypsy and she appears to be under mind control. Grodd seems to always have a backup plan, and now has a way to attack Earth one and Central City.
This episode was amazing. The CG was great and the story to include Grodd and multiverse travel was perfect. I did feel like the show moved forward fast in the plot, but I imagine that's because of the two parter. So next week we will get a conclusion to the Gorilla City arc and hopefully see Jesse and Harry stick around. I just can't stand HR he helps, but isn't like Harry or even Harrison Wells.
I give this episode a 8/10 I hope The Flash continues to get better and better. This season has been great so far!
