THE FLASH: “Attack on Central City” RECAP
Just when Barry thought he had seen the last of Grodd, Gypsy arrives, ambushes the team and after being subdued by Earth-2 Harrison Wells, the team learns that Grodd has an army of gorillas ready to attack Central City. Warning, spoilers ahead…
After learning of Grodd’s pending attack, Cisco uses his vibe powers to decipher the when and where this attack will take place. Unfortunately, it turns out to be diversion as Grodd kidnaps an Army general in another part of town. After failing to stop Grodd, Barry tells Iris that he regrets not killing Solovar when Grodd asked him to. Perhaps if he did, none of this would be happening now. Iris comforts Barry by reminding him why his compassion makes him such a hero.
With the General under Grodd’s control, Grodd orders a nuclear strike on Central City. When Barry puts a stop to the strike, Grodd orders an attack on the city with his army of gorillas. As Flash, Kid Flash and Jessie Quick ready themselves for the invasion, Cisco travels to Earth-19 to seek Gypsy’s help. As the speed trio work on the army of gorillas, Cisco and Gypsy return with Solovar where he defeats Grodd and reclaims control once again. All the gorillas return to Earth-2 with Solovar except Grodd.
The closing moments saw Barry propose to Iris and after Jesse decides to stay with Wally on Earth-1, he is confronted by Savitar.
Overall a satisfying conclusion to a this two-parter as we begin the final stretch of the Savitar story-line.
