The Flash (2014–…): Season 3, Episode 10 - Borrowing Problems from the Future - full transcript

Barry and Team Flash try to figure out a way to change the future to save Iris from her inevitable death. The only way for them to do that is to go back to the future. Wally West will be ...

Barry: My name is Barry Allen,

and I am the fastest man alive.

To the outside world, I'm
an ordinary forensic scientist,

but secretly, with the help
of my friends at S.T.A.R. Labs,

I fight crime and find
other meta-humans like me.

In an attempt to stop
the evil speedster Savitar,

I was accidentally thrust into the future,

and I saw him murder the woman I love.

But I won't let that happen.

I'm going to do everything in my power

to change the future, and I'm the only one



fast enough to keep her alive.

I am The Flash.

Previously on "The Flash"...

You wanna open S.T.A.R. Labs to the public?

In two weeks?
Soft open.

- I'm Alchemy.
- Turning innocent people

into meta-humans worshipping the Savitar?

An article used to be written
by Iris West-Allen.

Something's changed with our future.

- Barry.
- No!

What you saw was
one possibility of the future.

Then I can stop this from happening.

I... I don't understand. Where are we?

Home. I don't know...



what's gonna happen in the future.

All I know is right here, right now,

I wanna spend every moment I can with you.

Don't!

- Don't do this!
- Barry...

[distorted] You lose, Barry.

No!

[dramatic choral music]

[whoosh]

[roaring]

[gasps]

[distressed breathing]

Babe, are you okay?

- Yeah...
- Yeah.

Just a bad dream.

[pensive music]

Go back to sleep.

Yeah, sure. I'm not completely wide awake

after hearing you scream in your sleep.

You wanna talk about it?

No, you know what I wanna do?

Hmm.

I wanna unpack.

It's been a month.

Do not change the subject, Bartholomew.

- Bartholomew?
- Mm-hmm.

Am I in trouble?

Well, this is the third night in a row.

I know something else that's happened

three nights in a row.

- [chuckles]
- [phones buzzing]

[groans]

[sighs] It's a fire.

Richmond Heights.

Detective Patterson just ran inside.

He hasn't come out yet.
The fire department will not

make it here on time.

[whooshing]

Help!

I'm trapped in here!

We gotta get him out of here.

This place is up in flames any second.

You see the soot around this door?

- Yeah.
- 'Cause the fire has

no ventilation, so if we open the door now,

the sudden inrush of oxygen
will cause an explosion.

Help!

Okay, so what do we do?

Create an exit point
for the heat and smoke,

and remove all the oxygen at the same time.

- Which will put out the fire.
- Help me!

When I say so, open the door, all right?

Oh, man, that was so dope.
How do you stay so calm?

You're like scary calm
in the middle of a fight.

It's just experience, Wally.

That's why it's important for
you to shadow me for a while,

and try to learn everything I know.

And then I get to kick some ass.

Let me give you some advice, Wally.

Being a superhero's not about kicking ass.

Well... nope, actually
that's a straight-up lie.

There's a lot of ass-kicking involved.

Just keep doing what you're doing...

watching me. You're doing great.

I gotta go to breakfast with Dad,

but I'll catch up with you guys later.

[whooshes]

Yo, that's where... mm... [grumbles] Nope.

- You okay?
- My suit goes there.

Ah, two suits, one mannequin.

That is what we call a conundrum.

- No, I...
- [erratic beeping]

Hey, are you okay?

Yeah, these things have just
been on the fritz lately.

It makes me feel like a criminal.

Hasn't been on the fritz, okay?

Uh, maybe if you charge
the battery, like I told you to.

Oh, I'm just supposed to
hook myself up to an outlet,

like I'm some sort of human tablet?

Either you charge the cuffs,

or you go all Frozone on us again.

Or... you could fix them for me?

- Or I could fix 'em.
- [snickers]

- Sumptuous day, brethren.
- Oh, boy.

- Good morning, H.R.
- Oh, not just good.

It's g-r-r-eat, and why is that?

Because I'm finally ready to announce

that the new S.T.A.R. Labs museum

is ready for its opening...

soft opening... so come.

- [electronic revving]
- Let's take the tour.

This could've been avoided.
You know that, right?

Mm-hmm.

[elevator dings]

I just don't see why
you're defending the yellow guy.

Yes, he goes everywhere The Flash goes,

but this morning, for example,
he's just standing back,

waiting for the warehouse to burn down.

Well, maybe he's training with The Flash.

- You know, learning the ropes?
- Okay, well, we send

rookie cops out on patrol,
expect them to perform.

Look, I think the yellow guy's
gonna surprise you.

Once he gains a little bit of experience,

he's gonna give The Flash
a run for his money.

You know what I think? I think
maybe he's just not that fast.

- Or maybe he's just a coward.
- You don't get paid to think.

- And Kid Flash ain't no coward.
- Kid Flash? Okay.

There it is. The name says it all.

- [whoosh]
- [groans]

Hey, I say we just send him to Keystone.

We already have a Flash.

Wally.

- Did you hear any of that?
- Any of what?

Nothing, it was just a cop being stupid.

- Take you to breakfast?
- Please.

[upbeat music]

- Behold.
- Whoa!

- You did all this?
- Yeah.

Well, I don't wanna take all the credit.

I'm too modest to do that, but yeah.

Uh, who exactly is paying for all this?

[laughs] That's a great question.

Olga!

Allow me to introduce you
to your new coworkers.

Everybody, this is Olga.

- Da.
- both: Hi.

Oh, and she doesn't really
speak English so much,

but she's great. So right over here,

we have the ticketing and the admissions.

Over there, our specialty coffees...

Oh, uh, that reminds me. Caitlin...

Initially, I had you targeted for ticketing,

but it occurs to me,
with a few lessons in foam art,

you could very well man up...
excuse me... woman up

our cappuccino stand. What do you think?

H.R., I think Caitlin's gonna
have plenty to do as it is.

Can I ask you a question?

Do you want to eat pizza pockets
for every meal

for the rest of your life?
You don't; nobody wants that.

What you want is an income,

and we collectively need a cover

for our continued operation.

He makes some good points.

Now for the pièce de résistance...

I'm sorry, did you make a hologram of me?

Oh, Francisco, you made it perfectly clear

you didn't want to be a tour guide.

You're not. You're a virtual tour guide.

Guess what. That falls under the umbrella

of not wanting to be a tour guide.

- On we go.

I wasn't always the esteemed
engineer you see before you.

It was my love of science

that allowed me to overcome

Guys, I gotta run an errand. See ya later.

Am I in for another kidnapping?

- Okay, I deserve that.
- [scoffs]

No, um, I just came to check on you.

We haven't seen much of you since Christmas.

That's very sweet of you.
I'm doing well, thank you.

You know, what Savitar did...
forcing you to hurt people...

Savitar was controlling me, okay?

As far as I'm concerned,
my conscience is clear.

Really?

Then why the Zolpidem?
Are you having trouble sleeping?

Why don't we stop playing games, Dr. Snow,

and you tell me what you actually came for

rather than accusing me of having insomnia?

[sighs] I actually need your help.

How can I help you?

Well, you're the world's
foremost specialist

- on meta-humans...
- Yes, this much is true.

And I need you to help me
get rid of my powers.

I've tried everything.

I've run every test... blood, DNA...

and I can't reverse this.

I need to get rid of my powers before...

Before what?

Before I hurt someone else...

Um, so this character... your character...

uh, was he able to change his future?

More specifically, if he allowed

certain events to occur naturally,

was he only cementing the very timeline

that resulted in a horrible event later?

There were two schools of thought.

One faction... one group
of fans... they believed,

you know, the future's ever-changing.

You know, it's not fixed, and so

you could make of the future
anything you wish.

vehemently disagreed with it.
They said, "No, no, no.

"The future is fixed,
and you can't change it

Today's top story,

Jared Morillo, aka Plunder,

is back in police custody

after attempting to rob
the Central City Museum.

Morillo was apprehended by a new speedster,

who goes by the name Kid Flash.

Well, that settles it.

I think you're officially Kid Flash now.

- Yeah, it's growing on me.
- [laughs]

And this rifle is growing on me.

Heat-seeking bullets are just the beginning

of what this bad boy can do.

How did you end up with Plunder's rifle?

Barry stole it for me. Right, Barr?

- Mm-hmm.
- Oh, so you plundered Plunder?

I had to do something
while Wally was cuffing him.

Thanks to you, we changed the future.

If we can change one of these events,

we can change 'em all.

Nothing is set in stone.

We'll see you guys tonight.

- Can't wait.

I called the local elementary school,

and gave the principal discounted tickets.

I figured, hey, you know,
if the kids love it,

they'll tell their parents, and, well,

the rest writes itself.

You, Francisco... are brilliant.

Of course, science

is what will inspire these children...

- not just The Flash.
- [gasps]

Check it out.

Welcome to S.T.A.R. Labs.

My name is Francisco Ramon.

I wasn't always the esteemed
engineer you see before you,

but after years of hard work and studying,

I joined S.T.A.R. Labs.

- I hope my love of science...
- Should we go talk to him?

Will inspire some among you

to join the scientific community

as we strive to reach
a new age for humanity.

Thank you.

You're very welcome.

Hi. I hope I'm not too late.

- Right on time.

Good, good. This is a... it's for you.

Um, yeah. So we all talked it over,

and welcome to the team.

You being serious?

- Yeah.
- Thank you.

Yeah, it's so exciting.
I mean, my last team,

they were all murdered by Savitar, so...

We need to work on your small talk skills.

Yeah, sure. Just wanted to be upfront.

Yeah, um, I already talked to Wally,

but I'm sorry about yesterday.

Hey, guys. I asked myself

A home, you know,
it's more than bricks and mortar

and a turtle. It's a... it's a feeling.

It's a feeling of belonging, isn't it?

Of... of love, of course...

uh, hope for the future.
