A promo for next week's episode of The Flash shows Katee Sackhoff's Amunet joining forces with Team Flash to defeat The Thinker (Neal Sandilands). As their situation becomes more desperate with every episode, the team may have to look to their enemies for help.
Amunet, a metahuman crime lord, first appeared in the fifth episode of the season as Caitlin's former boss. Amunet crashed Iris' bachelorette party to get Caitlin back. It was eventually revealed that Amunet was in the business of imprisoning metahumans and trading them on the black market. Amunet even tried to buy Barry from Warden Wolfe, who had learned Barry's secret identity.
In a promo for "Harry and the Harrisons", fans can see members of Team Flash mulling over the possibility of turning to Amunet for help in defeating DeVoe. Caitlin argues that Amunet could be useful due to the fact that she's immune to DeVoe's powers, while Joe, Barry, and Iris all give reasons why Amunet can't be trusted. Apparently, Team Flash will come to an agreement and find a way to convince Amunet to team up with them, as one scene shows the character in S.T.A.R. Labs where Iris tells her, "No killing."
It's unclear how Team Flash will be able to sway Amunet into working with them. Amunet's past activities indicate that the character is only interested in herself, which means that if she helps the Flash, she'll only be doing it to pursue her own goals. It's possible that finding out what DeVoe is up to will be enough to push her into siding with Barry and the others. It's certainly true that taking away everyone's intelligence is a threat to the whole world, including Amunet. However, this doesn't mean that Amunet is trustworthy. Depending on the conditions, Amunet could work out a deal with DeVoe that would lead to her betraying Team Flash.
Though Harry isn't in the promo, we can assume from the title that the episode will dive deeper into the current storyline involving Harry's deteriorating intelligence. In Tuesday's episode, a breakthrough was made when it was discovered that Cecile can use her telepathic powers to read Harry's thoughts before they disappear. The synopsis for the episode reveals that Harry will be kicked out of the Council of Wells, prompting Cisco to introduce him to the Council of Harrisons.
Season 4 of The Flash continues Tuesday, May 8 at 8pm ET on The CW.
