The Flash will be exploring the multiverse to order to bring multiple versions of Harrison Wells together. The Flash, like Legends of Tomorrow, has never been afraid to use its sci-fi setting to introduced some wacky story lines. Time travel and dimension hopping alone open the door for some idiosyncratic plots, and The Flash's lighter tone has always allowed it to dip into those waters comfortably. With a rash of metas constantly attacking Central City, there's no end to the inventiveness the show is capable of.
Now that The Flash has gone back to basics, the fun and wonder of season 1 has also returned. The Flash episode 'Luck Be a Lady', for instance, used a meta with the power of luck to wreak havoc in a series of clever and entertaining scenarios. (After all, what show could realistically unleash a barrel of marbles without viewers batting an eye at the logic?) The past few seasons of The Flash have also had a lot of fun with the idea of the Multiverse, especially when it comes to the revolving door of different versions of Harrison Wells on the show. Now, the series is set to take things to a whole new level.
The CW has released the synopsis for 'When Harry Met Harry...', the upcoming November 14 episode of The Flash. In it, Barry will face a new meta, while Cisco and Harry will seek out some interesting help in their effort to stop The Thinker:
When collectors of Native American artifacts are attacked by a meta named Mina Chayton (guest star Chelsea Kurtz) who can bring inanimate objects to life, Barry (Grant Gustin) turns to a surprising ally for help. Determined to crack the identity of The Thinker, Harry (Tom Cavanagh) enlists Cisco’s (Carlos Valdes) help to summon the ultimate think tank: “The Council of Wells’,” a roundtable of the brightest Harrison Wells’ from various Earths.
The concept of an alternate Wells started out simple enough, but The Flash season 3 really had fun with the concept. Seeking out a replacement for Harry, Barry and Cisco searched through a number of comical takes on Wells, each allowing Cavanagh to have a blast with his character. In the end, H.R. proved to be the most absurd character on the show, helping to buoy the somewhat dour nature of last season. Harry is now back in the mix on The Flash, but he clearly won't be alone.
Rather than replace Harry with another Wells, it looks as if Cisco and his Earth-2 frenemy will seek out a whole gaggle of of them. The rest of the synopsis teases a new meta who seems to be an original invention of the show. It's also teased that Barry will seek out some surprising help. While this could point towards someone villainous, it could also be Ralph Dibny. Next week, the Elongated Man will arrive on The Flash, and we know he and Barry won't get along. Could the threat of Mina Chayton force Barry to bury the hatchet with Ralph?
The Flash continues next Tuesday with 'Elongated Journey into Night' on The CW.
