A new synopsis has been released by The CW for the upcoming third episode of The Flash’s fifth season, “The Death of Vibe.”
The title was announced earlier this summer, and it certainly spells bad things for Vibe, although the synopsis itself smashes a bit of hole in all of that.
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.”
Cisco has played an important role in the show but keeping in mind the show’s habit of twists and turns, it’s safe to assume that there’s more to this than it meets the eye. Either way, it seems like things could get bad for Team Flash in one way or the other.
“It is nice to have a villain that we can change up what Barry’s obstacle and the team’s obstacles are, and how to take somebody down.” executive producer Todd Helbing told ComicBook.com of Cicada after the Season 4 finale. “The Thinker, DeVoe, [was] a lot of fun and we certain see the benefits of doing that. Having a meta that isn’t a speedster and the new ways that we can pose challenges for those guys is fun. So I think for next season, it’s certainly not going to be a speedster.”
The synopsis also suggests that Killer Frost will be dwelling into her past, something that has been teased earlier when Cathleen learned about her Killer Frost powers.
“I think it’s going to be really important,” Panabaker said in a previous interview. “You know, toward the end of the season we saw Caitlin try to understand a little bit more of why she disappeared… so I think also this year she’s uncovering some mysteries about Killer Frost and how Killer Frost came to be and we’re going to see her delve into that.”
“The Death of Vibe” will premiere on October 23 on the CW.
