After wow’ing us all with one hell of a premiere last week (you can check out our review here), you could say the sky’s the limit for what The Flash can do in its fifth season. The hit DC show may have had its highs and lows just as any series does, sure, but it truly seems as if it’s once again managed to capture lightning in a bottle.
Of course, everybody’s likely still reeling after seeing that awesome poster for the “Elseworlds” crossover, but it’s important we not lose sight of what’ll go down before then. In fact, we’re going to talk about what’s on tap for next week right now, as the video up above teases what’s to come in the ominously titled “The Death of Vibe.”
First, let’s see what the plot summary offers, shall we?
CICADA TARGETS A MEMBER OF TEAM FLASH — After Cicada’s (Chris Klein) attack on The Flash (Grant Gustin), the team realizes they need to think outside the box to stop this dangerous new foe. Desperate to help her parents, Nora (Jessica Parker Kennedy) comes up with a plan that ultimately puts a member of Team Flash in danger. Meanwhile, Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) delves into her past. Andi Armaganian directed the episode written by Jonathan Butler & Gabriel Garza (#503). Original airdate 10/23/2018
So, things aren’t looking too good for Cisco, eh? Usually, such major deaths on TV series come out of nowhere, but to actually follow through on something of this magnitude would be pretty bold. I mean, how often do you see any show blatantly tell you a character dies before it actually happens? If this does indeed pan out, then the producers have some guts.
Either way, with how exciting things have been over the past two episodes, you can bet we’ll be turning in to see what’s in store for Barry Allen and co. next week. Cicada seems like a pretty formidable opponent and whether he actually kills Cisco or not, it’s sure to be another gripping hour of The Flash that you won’t want to miss.
