The Flash (2014–…): Season 1, Episode 12 - Crazy for You - full transcript

Caitlin brings Barry out to a karaoke bar, hoping they both meet someone new; Cisco thinks about Hartley's dangerous proposition; Henry's snooping gets him into trouble.

My name is Barry Allen,

and I am the fastest man alive.

When I was a child,
I saw my mother killed

- by something impossible.
- Run, Barry, run!

My father went to prison
for her murder.

Then an accident
made me the impossible.

To the outside world,

I'm an ordinary
forensics scientist,

but secretly,
I use my speed to fight crime

and find others like me.

And one day, I'll find

who killed my mother...

And get justice for my father.

I am... The Flash.

Previously on The Flash...

Cisco, if you don't
seal off the blast,

everyone in this building
will die, including Caitlin.

Don't look for me again.

Ronnie's alive,

and he's out there,
alone and scared.

Hartley Rathaway
Possesses one of the finest

scientific minds
I've ever encountered.

I can't imagine
how you're gonna feel

when you open up these doors
and let me out of here.

Why would I ever do that?

Because I know
where Ronnie Raymond is.

Honey... honey...

Oh, God.


- Help!
- Somebody help us.

See if you can get the power
of that line shut down.

You guys lay down the hose line.

- Please help!
- Help us!

- Help us!

- Hold on!

Stay here, all right?

I gotcha.


How did...

I love you.

Thank you,



That was insane.

I mean,
even I'm having a hard time

getting mad at you
for dirtying up my suit.

Okay, when are we going to
start considering it my suit?

I'd be comfortable calling it
our suit.

"Our suit."

Tonight was the fastest
you've ever run.

Yes, your training is
paying off.

That couple is alive tonight
because of you.

I can still get faster.
I know I can.

And you will one day, I'm sure.

But for today,

I'd say you've fulfilled
your save quota.

Proper rest is what you need,
as do we all.

Better yet, what we all need is
a proper drink.

Who's up for a round?

Oh, dude, it's...
it's movie night with Joe.

I can't.

But I'll see you guys tomorrow,
all right?

- Bye.
- Night.

What about you?

Drinks on me?

I think I'll pass.

You okay?

I was looking for my tablet
at your work station,

and I found this.

I can explain.

I know you said we should
stop looking for Ronnie,

so I...

didn't stop looking for Ronnie.


He said he knew

what happened to Ronnie.

Oh, Hartley Rathaway,

who is currently locked up in
our super-villain basement jail

for going psycho
with sound waves?

He's made some poor choices.

There's no argument there.

But I looked into
what he was saying and...

Ronnie's gone,

and it's time for me to
move on with my life.

Doesn't seem like it.

What's that supposed to mean?

Look, I'm not an expert
on love,

but I think in order to
move on from Ronnie,

you actually have to move on.

The security cameras in
half the prison are shut down.

Then Clay Parker,
according to this data log,

who was still
locked in his cell,

somehow vanishes.

Not completely.

What's that?

It's some kind of
organic particulate residual.

I found it on the floor
in here,

just outside the cell,

out in the hallway.

Trail led me
all the way outside.



Word around here is,

Parker pulled a Shawshank?

Yep, and none of
the other prisoners

heard or saw anything.

Well, they wouldn't talk to you
about it.

Leaves us with
not a lot to go on.

Well, if there's anyone
who can figure out

how Parker got out of here,

it's you, Son.

Come on, Allen, let's go.

Duty calls.

So, my dad just happened
to come by?

The guard owed me a favor.

Thank you.

Thanks for...

getting me
out of that hellhole.

You'd have done the same
for me, right?


How the hell did this
happen to you?

Don't know.

After you got locked up,
I started not feeling right.

I was passing out for
no reason,

waking up in odd places.

It took me a while before
I could control it.

Soon as I could...

I came for you.

What, so you can just

jump wherever you want?

If I can see where
I'm going.

We got a second chance, Clay.

We can leave Central City.

Do... do all the things
we talked about.

I can't leave yet, baby.

I owe Marcus a lot of money.

I skipped town
before paying him back.

He'll find us.

Hey, but with what you can do,

we can pay off that debt.

Then we'll be free, and
we can go anywhere in the world.


Not even Barry's cells
move this fast.

I've never seen
anything like it.

So Clay Parker is a meta-human?

Not so fast.

The particulate residue
Barry gathered

at Iron Heights does contain
Clay Parker's DNA,

but also DNA of a woman.

Run her DNA against
the CCPD criminal database.

See if you get a match.


Her name's Shawna Baez.

Mostly petty crimes,

and this girl likes to party,

Long list of disorderly conducts
at local bars.

So I'm guessing we find her,
we find Clay Parker.

- Barry?
- Yeah.

In the meantime,
let's track these particulates

and see how they work.

I'll be right with you guys.

I've had the biggest craving
for Thai food.

You said you knew
what happened to Ronnie

and how he was still alive.

And you said Professor Stein
was at S.T.A.R. Labs

the night of the explosion.

He was.


The mystery isn't why Stein went
to S.T.A.R. Labs that night.

It's why he didn't leave.

Tell me.

I have to show you.

You are not getting out
of this cell.

Fair enough,
but I know you, Cisco.

I know how much
you looked up to Ronnie.

He was like family.

A family
you built for yourself here.

I know how much you want
to see that family healed.

Let me help you.

I don't believe you.

Well, I'm telling you
the truth, Cisco.

When you are ready,
you know where to find me.

What's that smile about?

I saw my dad today.

No glass, no phones.

Just me and him, face-to-face.

Joe arranged it.

That must have been amazing,

I really needed it.

I'm sure he needed it, too.

Were you there
investigating the breakout?

- Mm-hmm.
- That is a big story.

Which I am not a part of.

My editor wants me writing about
The Flash, and only The Flash.

Is that a bad thing?

I don't know.
I would just like

to be thought of
as more than The Flash PR flack.

I mean,
if I don't write something soon,

I think I might lose my job.

Hey, no.

We will find you
a great story to write about.



You know
I'm always here for you.

I know.

Didn't know you enjoyed yourself
a little rough trade.

If I'm gonna let you out,

I'm not taking any chances.

Curiosity's a maddening thing,
is it not?

What do you mean
you've been asking around?

Do you know
a Marcus Stockheimer?

he's some mid-level gangster.

He works mainly on
the south side.

Word is, Clay Parker was
a runner for Marcus.

When Clay got pinched,
Marcus lost a lot of money.

Apparently Marcus doesn't like
losing money.

So, what?
So Parker can't leave

Central City
until he's paid off his debt?

From what I'm told,

if you're a member of
the Stockheimer crew,

you get out,

first thing you do is
pay him a visit

or suffer the consequences.

All right.

No more playing cop.

Promise me.

I hear you.

All right.

You said you were gonna show me
what happened to Ronnie.

Ronnie died inside the building.

What are we doing out here?

What do you see?

I don't know.

Buildings, walls, dirt.

Wells would be so disappointed
in your observational skills.

Look again.

It's Japanese.

How can you speak six languages

and sound like a dick
in every one of them?

It means "bomb shadow."

They found these
all over Hiroshima

after the first atomic bomb
was dropped.

This shadow belonged to
Martin Stein.

The accelerator explosion
did this to him?

You really don't see it,
do you?

You're gonna kick yourself
when you figure it out.

Oh, man.

You were full of it then,
and you're full of it now.

This is just another one of
your lame-ass tricks.

Come on.

We're going back
into the Pipeline.




You're not the only one who
understands vibrations, Hartley.

Those cochlear devises
you're wearing?

I made a few adjustments.

No, please don't!


If you know how to find Ronnie,

then you better tell me.

Right now.

Please, make it stop.

I'll show you.

I'll show...
ah... aah!

Try that again,

and I won't make it stop.


I'm impressed.

Didn't think
you had that in you.

But you have to
take these off me

if you want to
find out the truth.

And why's that?

It'll look a little conspicuous
where we're going next.

I was analyzing the particulates

that Clay Parker and Shawna Baez
left behind,

and I found
something very interesting.

When Clay's cells come into
contact with Shawna's,

they adopt her properties.

Something bothering you?

Why would you ask that?

You're doing that
biting-your-lower-lip thing

that you do
when something's bothering you.

I'm fine.


Cisco says
I don't have a life.

You don't, do you?

I do!

I cook and I eat

and I read

and I help you.

So, what you're saying is,
you do everything

that has nothing to do with
having a life.

You don't have to be
rude about it.

Hey, I'm not doing any better

than you.
My social life consists of

running at superhuman speed
and Netflix.

We are quite the pair,
Mr. Allen.

Yes we are, Dr. Snow.

There's an armed robbery
in progress.

Two suspects,
male and female in their 20s.

Sounds like our meta-human
Bonnie and Clyde are

at it again.

Time to ruin
their social life.

Just a few bags, baby,
is enough to pay back Marcus.

These things are heavier
than they look.

Oh, I've read about you.

You're The Flash.

I've heard you're real fast.

Let's see if it's true.

Catch me if you can.

I can.

Oh, you gotta be kidding me.

Not too many men can
keep up with me.

This is a bullet wound.

You're lucky it just barely
broke the skin.

Guess I'm a lot faster than
a speeding bullet.

Shawna Baez.

She can teleport.

As in, "Beam me up, Shawna?"

Yes, of course.

Quantum entanglement.

The ability to manipulate
interconnected particles

over an infinite distance.

Or, as Einstein put it,

"spooky action at a distance."

Every time I got close,
she'd disappear.

It was like we were playing
a game of...


Come on.
Can't I name one?

How am I supposed to catch her

if I don't know
where she's gonna be?

Everybody has limits,
Mr. Allen.

Now that we know
Shawna's powers,

we'll focus on those limits.

All right.

Let me know.

I'm gonna change.

I gotta go help Iris.

Hey, Barry.

- Hey, Eddie.
- Hey, what are you doing here?

I thought I'd see if
you wanted help

writing your story
for the paper.

Oh, that is so sweet.
I would love to,

but we were about to have dinner
with Eddie's mom tonight.

And we're late.

Can we do it another time?

Yeah, yeah... yeah.


- All right.
- Bye.

- See ya.
- Bye.


What bars did
Shawna and Clay frequent?

Uh, mostly south side
dive bars.


I was just gonna check 'em out.

See if they fall into
any old habits.

That's a good idea.

I'll join you.

♪ Everyone's wondering ♪

♪ Will you come out tonight ♪

♪ Everyone's trying
to get it right ♪

♪ Get it right ♪




Uh, well, you look...

really nice.

I don't always dress like
a high school principal.

So, this is where

Shawna Baez and Clay Parker
used to hang out?

It is,
according to the files.

I thought we could
kill two birds with one stone.

Look for them and
get ourselves back out there.

I keep making
the same mistake.

Every time Iris falls,
I race to pick her up

thinking that one of these times
things are gonna change,

but I... things are never
gonna change.

I am just destined to be
just the friend.

At least you're not pining for
someone who bursts into flames

and wants nothing
to do with you.

What is wrong with us?

I mean, we're in our 20s.

We should be having fun.

We should meet people,

go on lots of dates.

here's to liquid courage.

♪ Everybody's working for
The weekend ♪

Uh... that is... very fast.

Drank all of it.

Excuse me?

I would like to start a tab.

CCPD confiscated everything
from S.T.A.R. Labs

after the explosion.

Video, audio,
traffic cam footage.

Okay, so?

I saw Martin Stein the night
S.T.A.R. Labs went boom.

He walked right past me.

You see, Stein specialized in

Molecular transmography.

Quantum splicing.

Taking two things
and making them one.

Let's go to the videotape,
shall we?

Okay, stop.

Now zoom in a few clicks.

Now advance it,

His eyes.

They turned white,
just like Ronnie's.

Now, stop there.

In the mass of energy.

- Looks like...
- Ronnie.

And Professor Stein.

The dark matter
merged them together.

Explains why Ronnie hasn't
seemed quite himself lately.

It's because he's not.

He's Martin Stein.


You can't say I didn't keep up
my end of the bargain.

I figure that makes us
even Stephen.


Excuse me,
could I get some water?


Excuse me?

- For real?
- Mr. Barry Allen!

Come on down!

- Or up.
- I'm not doing it.

Come up here with me.

Oh, come show 'em what you got.

Come on.


Barry! Barry! Barry! Barry!
Barry! Barry! Barry!

Ooh, look at him go.
He's so fast!

Ooh, shh!

You know I'm not
much of a singer.

And you're not
much of a drinker.

We are gonna
bring this place down.

Okay, just... good girl.

Get ready.

What can't you do?

Stop you from drinking,

I'm not even sure
that was mine.

I have to go
to the bathroom.


Can I close out my tab,

Hey, Stevie.

Can my friend here tap out?

Sure thing, Linda.

Uh, thank you, Linda.

You're welcome, Barry.

How do you know my name?

"Barry. Barry. Barry."


Sorry about us up there.


Are you kidding?

No, that was some of
the best singing that I've heard

come from that stage.

You definitely
made my ears happy.

Don't worry.


So... was that
your girlfriend up there?

Oh... no, no.

She's a friend.


Hey. Have you heard of
this new phone app?

It's so cool.

Check it out.
You just touch someone's phone

with your phone,
and it automatically

downloads your contact info.


That is cool.

You have my number.

What you do with it now is
up to you.


- Barry?
- Yeah?

I don't feel good.

Come on.


80 grand.

What I owe.

So we square now?



Holy crap.

I'm glad you're impressed.

So we cool now?


Couldn't be cooler.

Which is why I think we need to
keep working together.

With what I know,

and what you can do,

oh, we can be looking at
a very lucrative future.

Everybody down!


- Oh, baby!

Hold it right there.


Are we still running?

No, we are here.

Vodka and super-speed...

not a good combination.

Come on.

So, are you gonna call her?


That girl.

The one who gave you
her number.

I hadn't really
thought about it.

Yes, you have.

But I know you.
You won't.

You'll let her slip
right through your fingers

because you think
you don't deserve happiness.

But what you don't realize is,
you need a little saving, too.

Little help, please.

W... yeah.

There you go again.

Saving me from that
evil dress.

Get in bed.

Did you sneak a peek?

At my goods?

I wouldn't be much of a hero
if I did.

Yeah, but it's okay
if you peeked a little.

You deserve a peek for
all the good stuff you do.

Drink lots of water.

Thank you for tonight.

I sang.

Any time.

Hey, Barry?

Will you stay with me
until I fall asleep?

Sure, yeah.


So loud.

Oh, ho-ho.

I just wanted to make sure
you're okay.

Let's just say I envy
your inability to get drunk.

I don't remember
much from last night.

that's probably for the best.

♪ Summer lovin' ♪

Oh, God.
That I do remember.

What's wrong?

Cisco... has something
he needs to tell you.

Hartley's gone.

He escaped
from the Pipeline?

How is that even possible?

I let him out.

Are you mad?

I can't tell with
those glasses on.

I'd like to yell
and wave my arms,

but I'm afraid I'd throw up.

What were you thinking?

You know how dangerous he is.

Hartley said he knew
what happened to Ronnie.

I told you to let it go.

I didn't want you
looking into that for me.

I wasn't doing it for you.


I sealed Ronnie into the
accelerator before it blew.

He told me to wait
two minutes,

and I waited,
but he didn't come back.

And I can't stop thinking,

10, 20 seconds and...

Ronnie wouldn't be like
he is right now.

I've wanted to tell you
so many times.

I'm so sorry.

So you carried that around
this whole time?

Do you know what
Ronnie would say if he was here?

He would say that
you did the right thing.

It wasn't your fault.

What happened that night
wasn't anybody's fault.

Come on.

Don't we have
a teleporter to catch?

We do have
a teleporter to catch.

And fortunately,
we do have a promising theory.

Take a look at this.

Now, this is the normal behavior

of the particulate
that Shawna left behind.

Watch what happens
when we remove light.

Shawna can only become entangled
with something she can see.

Take away her ability
to do that...

She can't teleport.


So, we just need to get her
into a dark space.

How do we do that?

It's a valid question.



Yeah, I'll be right there.

All right.

What's wrong?

M-my dad.

He's been stabbed.

Dad... what happened?

A rather stern reminder,
I'd say,

not to poke around
Marcus Stockheimer's business.

Dad, I told you to stop.

Your dad called me
with more intel.

It helped us track down Clay and
Shawna and arrest Stockheimer.

I managed to screw up
Marcus's big heist, too, so...

You two kept working together,
and you didn't tell me?

It isn't his fault.

I did it to help you.

You getting stabbed and beaten
is not helping me.

Look, I-I-I-I don't get to

feel useful very much in here.

So if I can help you
for a change,

I'm gonna want to
be there for you.

Just like you've been there
for me all these years.


You said Marcus had
a big heist coming up?


Do you know anything else
about it?

Dad, tell me
who did this to you.

No, it doesn't matter,

But you said
you want to help me.

So help me.

One of Marcus's boys.


What the hell?

Evening, Julius.

How'd I get out here?

You escaped.

They catch me trying to escape,

they're gonna add five years
to my sentence.

Ten, actually.

Unless you tell me where

Marcus Stockheimer's next
job is gonna be.

Oh! Guards will be here
any second.

I'd start blabbing.



It's a TDK
and money transfer truck

coming from the federal reserve
bank in St. Louis.

Supposed to be millions.

Delivery's around 8:00.

That's all I know.
I swear.

That's right now.


Hey, what about me?

I think we got company.

What the...


Let's go.

I got this.

Why the hell
do you care what we do?

Are you a cop or something?


Come on!

Barry, remember: she cannot
teleport if she cannot see.

Limit her field of vision.


He left me.

Is there any way she can
teleport out of this?

It's impossible.

It's one-way glass.

It's mirrored on the inside.

No one dangerous is ever gonna
get out of this thing again.


Clay left you.

He's out there,
and you're in here.

You know what
the crazy thing is?

I still love him.


Crazy is right.

Some people are worth
being crazy for.

I'm sorry if I was a bit of
a drunken mess the other night.

Actually, it was pretty fun.

Yeah, it was.

You know what?

I think everybody's been right
about you and me.

Both of us have been hung up
on people for way too long.

If what Cisco says is true,

that Ronnie merged
with Martin Stein,

then he's not alive anymore.

Time for me to move on.

Find someone new
to be crazy about.

All right, well.

I'll see you tomorrow.

Yes, sure.



That's for you.

I thought maybe
you could help me out,

if you're willing.

This is about
the breakout at Iron Heights.

Clay Parker.
He's still on the loose,

and we need to catch him.

Why are you giving this to me?

'Cause you're a good reporter.

And the only one I know.

You're not the only one
who's fast.

Hey, what are you doing here?

- Hey.
- If you came to check on me,

that is really sweet,

but I think
everything's gonna be okay.

I'm glad.

I actually am not here
to see you.


No, I have a lunch date.

With who?

- Ready.
- Hey.

Oh, hey,
you're our new stringer, right?


I'm Linda Park.

Iris West.

How did you two meet?

Well, it's actually
kind of a funny story.

Yeah, I'll tell you later,
all right?

- You ready?
- Yeah.

- Okay.
- See ya.

Have fun.

So an actual date this time.

Good for you.

You didn't tell her
your dad's in the slammer?

No, I read in a magazine that
that's a big turnoff.



You see this?


I haven't.

The Flash.

I saw him once.

In here.

Watched him save
Joe's life.

Joe told me about that.

I guess he was lucky.


Lucky Joe.

The strangest thing.

I get roughed up by Julius,
end up in here.

Next thing I know, Julius is
caught trying to escape,

claims The Flash
broke him out.

Won't be seeing Julius for
a long time now.

Guess I'm lucky too, huh?


If I was The Flash,

don't you think that you'd be
the first to know about it?


Well, if The Flash were my son,
I'd tell him a few things.

First off, I'd tell him
it's a dangerous world,

so be careful.

Then I'd tell him he's a hero.

And he's saving a lot of lives.

But the most important thing
for him to know, I feel,

is that
his father's proud of him.

Power grid's been going haywire
in this sector.

The system's so antiquated.


What was that?



Greg, move your head.
