The Flash (2014–…): Season 3, Episode 13 - Attack on Gorilla City - full transcript

Barry and the team travel to Earth-2 to rescue Harry from Gorilla City, where they're captured and brought to Grodd, who claims he needs their help to stop Solovar.

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 that I love.

But I won't let that happen.

I'm gonna 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"...

It's definitely a meta. I
think this is someone new.

I'm Cisco, by the
way. You must be Gypsy.

- So is this good-bye, then?
- For now.

Caitlin, you do not want to do this.

Time for me to own who I really am.

You're one of the strongest
people I've ever known.

You can win this fight.

- Jesse!
- No, no.

- What's wrong?
- Grodd.

He's got my dad.

He has him in Gorilla City.


It's been two weeks
since he disappeared.

I mean, no one's seen
or heard from him since.

Slow down. Just start
from the beginning.

Okay, why did your
dad go to Gorilla City?

Wait, can we slow down even further?

What the hell is a Gorilla City?

Okay, so...

there are sentient, highly intelligent

evolved gorillas in Earth-2.

And they all live in a city
deep in the heart of Africa.

We sent Grodd there when
he went after Fay Wray here.

- Grodd's there?
- Mm.

Why on Earth, any Earth, would
your father want to go there?

I mean, we received a
mathematical cryptogram

at our S.T.A.R. Labs.

It was highly complex.

It took a week to decode
it, but my dad and I did.

What did it say?

It was an invitation...

from the gorillas to my dad.

Why Harry?

They wanted to meet him.

So he mounted an expedition
with ten other people,

and they went into the jungle.

But they failed multiple check-ins,

and a search party went in after them.

But all they found were the bodies...

all of them beaten to death.

But no one's seen my dad.

- I mean, is he...
- No.

No, he's alive. They...

they went to a lot of
trouble to get him there.

They need him for something.

We're gonna figure out what that is.

Oh! There you guys are.

I've been looking all over for you.
Are we going for coffee or what?

- Dad!
- Ah, oh.

Yes, that's how you say
good morning, people...

with hugs. Hi!

Jesse, that's not who you think it is.

This is H.R.

You met him briefly
before you left last time.

At your service, madame.

He's Harry's replacement.

Some would say improvement.

Um, this is Harry's daughter.

- Yeah.
- He's been kidnapped.

He... I didn't know. I'm so s...

- I thought...
- Sorry about that.

I'm sorry, too.

I'm sorry I took the
smile from your face.

What are you thinking about?

The future.

This headline from the future:

the city's still recovering
from a gorilla attack.

So you're thinking this headline

and Harry being taken are tied together.

I mean, it can't be
a coincidence, right?

Harry getting lured to Gorilla City?

Grodd must be planning something.

Seems like he's planning
to come back to this Earth.

And not alone, by the sound of it.

If we rescue Harry,
then maybe that stops

whatever Grodd's planning here,

and maybe that changes the future.

- Which would change my future.
- Mm.

So we save Harry, we save Iris.

But you're not sure.

No, but...

I'm going either way.

Harry's my friend. I'm
not gonna just abandon him.

I'm going back to Earth-2.

And I suppose you'll want
somebody to come with you

who's gonna open those breaches for you?

We had so much fun last time.


I'm in.

I'm gonna come too.

I have a special connection with Grodd.

Maybe we can use that
to get through to him.

- Yes, okay.
- Great, yeah, I'm coming too.

No. I'm sorry, Jesse, no.

Look, I didn't come here
for you to take all the risk.

- I'm going to help.
- Your dad would kill me

if I let you come along.

I'm a Speedster now, okay?

I can take care of myself.

I know, which is exactly
why I need you to stay here.

I mean, this city needs
protecting while we're gone.

Besides, maybe you can
teach Wally a thing or two.

Wait, what is he talking about?



So you're... you're a Speedster now

Yeah, we're both Speedsters now.

Great, yeah, that's, uh...

... that's awesome.

I, um... I thought she'd
be more excited than that.

Hey, Julian, would you
maybe be able to cover for me

at work for the next few days?

Few days? Why?

I... I just, um, have a thing...

we're... it's just... it's Flash stuff.

Such as?

A friends of ours is
lost on a parallel Earth,

and we're gonna go get him back.

- A parallel Earth?
- Yeah.

This is the... this is the multiverse.

I'm fascinated.

And do you often travel to other Earths?

No, I... well, when I have to.

Look, Julian, will you
just tell Singh that,

I don't know, I'm under
the weather or something?

It's... you know, it is kind
of what we do on Team Flash.

We cover for each other.

What does Caitlin think of
all this multiverse hopping?

- Does she approve?
- She's coming with me.

- You're letting her go?
- It's her choice.

Allen, it's not a wise move, surely.

She can barely control
her cold powers as is.

- I mean...
- We might need her for Grodd.

Grodd? Gr...

- Telepathic gorilla?
- Yeah.

Where... where are you going?

Are you going to Planet of the Apes?

No, it's just a city of them, okay?

Will you cover for me?

Are you going to Planet of the Apes?

I'm not going to Planet
of the Apes, okay?

Calm down. Will you cover for me?

I got you. Yeah, of course.

Okay, thank you. See you in a few days.

All right, now.

- And make sure Wally doesn't...
- I won't.

Because, you know, sometimes...

- he can be a little...
- Barry...

You know, if given the opportunity...

Barry, I am very good

at bossing my little
brother around, okay?

- Don't worry.
- All right.

Just please don't do anything stupid.

You mean like voluntarily
going to a city of super apes?

I'm being serious.

Rescue Harry.

But other than that, you...

you don't have to do this for me.

Everything I do is for you.


Y'all know Wally can hear you, right?

Sorry, Wally.

Be safe.

Hey, you see anything hinky, you run.

Listen to me. I don't
need to tell you that.

I promise.

All right.

Detective. Hmm.

Indiana Jones much?

Cisco, my friend, this is
not my first expedition,

and believe me, this
is the perfect attire.

Wait, Julian, what's going on?

I thought you were gonna cover for me.

I spoke to Captain Singh.

He thinks we're at a
morphology conference

up in Bludhaven.

So if it's all the same to you...

All right.

You don't have to come, Julian.

- You don't even know Harry.
- Come on.

A chance to travel to
another dimension...

I mean, I wasn't gonna miss that.

We're not going sightseeing.

Neither am I.

Well, damn.

All right, Jesse, Wally,

you make sure this city's
safe while I'm gone, all right?

We will.

Hey, Barry.

If you... if you see
my dad, just tell him...

You'll see him real soon,
Jesse. Speedster's honor.

All right, let's do this.


Earth-2, here we come.

How was that?

Bloody brilliant.


Well, we made it.

Welcome to the jungle, baby.

Earth-2 Africa.

Not hot.

Guess global warming's
not really a thing here.

But bugs are.

Someone please help me out.

How exactly does saving
someone on this Earth

prevent an attack on ours?

If Grodd is planning to attack,

he's gonna need to open
a breach to our Earth,

and the only one over here
that can open one is...

- Harrison Wells.
- Harrison Wells, yeah.

So if we save him from Grodd,

then he can't get to our Earth,

the attack never happens,
we change the future,

and we're one step
closer to saving Iris.


You want to go for a run?

Uh, yeah, yeah. Maybe later.

Are you okay?

Yeah. Yeah, I'm fine.

Look, I know I haven't been
great at keeping in touch.

It's just everything's been so crazy

trying to train with Barry
and shadowing him, and..

I just haven't had that
much time for other things.

Yeah, or other people.

That is not what I meant.

No, look, I... I get it.

Trust me.

- It's not easy being a hero, is it?
- No.

But I love every minute of it.


Are you sure you're okay?

- Because...
- Yeah.

I'm just worried about my dad.

- Hey.
- Hey.

I hope we didn't interrupt you two.

Nope. Nothing to interrupt.

- Mm.
- Aren't you...

you aren't happy she's back?

I am. I just wish she felt the same.

Ever since she got here, she's
been acting so weird with me.

I... I don't know if
it's because I have powers

or if it's just me.

Wally, she's probably still just upset

because her father's missing, right?

Yeah, it's hard to focus on other things

when something like that
is weighing you down.

Yeah, Wally. She'll be fine. Just...

give her some time, and then,

you know, lock it down.

- Uhh, lock it down, hmm?
- Yeah.

What, you think I didn't notice
that your Facebook profile

still says "single"?

What? I mean, technically,
I'm still single.

What was it?

Ugh, robbery in progress
at O'Sullivan Bank.

You two go.

Come on, let's go.

- Didn't hear the news, huh?
- What news?

That you don't mess with Kid Flash.

We got to get back to our
friends. They're expecting us.

Yeah, they picked some real winners.

I know, which is more
than I can say for you two.

Be right back.

- Sorry, I... I had to stretch my legs.
- Mm.

Hey, guys, come out.

Oh, it's...

it's nothing to see here, guys.

It's just a couple fools getting
their asses handed to 'em.

Thank you.

Oh, my gosh, thank you.


Want some water?

I'm okay, thanks.

It's important to stay
hydrated on a parallel Earth.

So weird being back here
on this alternate universe.

This is where I met my
doppelganger, the evil one.

- Killer Frost.
- Ah.

She's the one I'm always
afraid of becoming.

And where is she now?


That's not gonna happen to you, Caitlin.

I'm glad you came with us, Julian.

You're a nice addition to the team.

Yeah, well,

I live for danger.

We're close, guys.

Do you hear that?

This is it.

It's a trap.


Welcome, Caitlin.

Knew you'd come...


You guys all right?

Yeah, I'm okay.

Yeah, me too.

I've lost my gun, but I'm all right.

Well, looks like you're gonna
have to phase us out of here.

I can't. I...

I don't know. Something's
holding me back.

Can you open a breach?

- No dice.
- Yeah.

I don't think it's the cell. I...

Grodd must be dampening
our powers somehow.



- You're all right.
- Wells.

Hey! You got to help us get out of here

before the gorillas come back.

Hello, Flash.

- Grodd.
- What?

That's Grodd the gorilla?
He's talking through Wells?

- That's a... a thing?
- Yeah.

Yeah, sort of trips you out at first,

but trust me, you get used to it.

Grodd, let him go.

This is between you and me.

Not yet.

- I need him.
- For what?

Why'd you lure him here?

For you.

Need your help.


Got a funny way of asking for it.

You sent me here!


To live in this hell!

Where I am forced to serve

under the rule of Solovar.

Who's Solovar?

Leader of Gorilla Kind.

Ruler of Gorilla City.

And now...

he wants to rule the humans.

He will bring war to your Earth.

- Why?
- He has seen many conflicts

between gorillas and humans.

He is afraid the humans will attack,

but now that you're here,

he will bring the fight to you.

So you lured us here to stop him?

As trespassers...

you will be sent to the arena...

and executed.

What? How about a signpost at the front?

"All trespassers will be executed."

That wouldn't be the
worst idea, would it?

Will be Solovar's great honor...

to kill you...


- Mm.
- But, Flash...

if he were to be defeated,

the other gorillas
would see his weakness

and would no longer follow him.

Well, I'm not gonna kill anyone,

not even a gorilla.

Kill or be killed!

This is the only law
Gorilla Kind understands.

How do you benefit from this, Grodd?

Solovar falls.

I take his place.

I rule the gorillas,

and I promise to keep
them in Gorilla City.

How do we know we can trust you?


even though you sent me away,

your Earth is still my home.

And there are those among you...

I will never forget.

Kill Solovar,

and Central City will be spared.

Fail, and see your home...

turned to ash.

Hey, Jesse, you got a sec?

Did I do something wrong?

I don't... I don't think so.

Okay, then why are you
being so cold with me?

Jesse, come on, you can talk to me.

I know that this is about
more than just your dad.

Look, I guess...

I guess I thought...

one day we'd figure out
a way to be together.

You know, but now that you
have your powers, it's...

it's like I never hear from you.

Jesse, if...

if you would,

I want you to stay.

- I can't.
- Why?

Because of your dad?

Because Barry is going to find him.

Look, you don't know
that, okay? You don't.

When I first got my power,

you were so lost not having yours.

You know, and I thought
maybe part of the reason

why you liked me was...

'cause you were attracted
to the speed and not me.

I know, I know, okay?

But I saw you out there today...

being Kid Flash.

Okay, and you were complete, Wally.

You were scary complete.

I could have all the speed in the world.

I'm not complete without you.


Barry, do you really think
you could kill this Solovar?

Do you think you could take a life?

It is as I feared.

The humans court war with Gorilla Kind.

Why did you not tell me, Grodd,

more humans had entered the city?

I was about to inform you, Solovar.


Why are you here?

To study us like animals?

Make us your pets?

No, no. I'm... I...

We came here in peace.

We entered your city by mistake.

Uh, we mean you no harm.


just let me and my
friends go, and I promise,

we'll never come back here again.

My brethren have seen you.

Your fate is sealed.

You will all die by my hand...

in the arena...

so that all will know
that Solovar's justice

is wise and swift.

All right, I'll make you a deal.

I'll fight you in the arena... just me.

But if I beat you,

you let my friends go,

and you leave us alone for good.

I accept.

Humans and their arrogance.

First you will suffer.

Then I will grant you each...

a horrible death.

Speedster versus super gorilla.

Best worst video game ever.

Do you really think that
Barry can beat Solovar?

Well, he'd better, for all of our sakes.

It's starting.

After you die,

your friends will follow
you into the black.

- We'll see.
- Okay, Barry.

I got a plan for you.

It's all about the speed punches.

Speed punches.

Come on, Barry.

Change of plan, Barry.

It's all about the running away.

What about the lightning throw?

Yes, Barry, lightning throw!

Worth a shot!

That's oh for two.

Come on, Barry, get up.

All my days, this is quite
the reversal of our fortune.


Barry, it's time to
pull a reverse Flash.

Do it!

He did it! He actually did it.

He bloody well did it.

I won't kill him!

I won't!

I know you all fear humans!

You think we want war with Gorilla Kind!

We don't!

We're not all murderers and killers!

We only want peace!

Which is why I'm sparing your leader!

We call it mercy!

Take him out.


what happened?


You won.

What about Harry?

He's still catatonic.

- Flash.
- I won.

Solovar promised to let us go.


No? What do you...

I don't understand.

Solovar's words mean nothing now.

You never had any intentions
of letting us go, did you?

I told you I needed you.

I could not defeat Solovar
in combat, but you could.

You did, and now I am
the ruler of Gorilla City,

and all the gorillas will follow me.

Solovar never wanted
to attack Central City.

You do.

You took my home away from me,

and now I will take it back!

The gorillas saw what you did, Flash.

They saw you defeat Solovar,

and now they are afraid of humans

and will do anything I order,

and I will order them
to invade your Earth,

and your city will burn.

You were planning this the whole time.


Father taught me well.

Always think ahead.

And I had plenty of time to think

in cages built by you

and then by Solovar.

Then why don't you just kill us? Huh?

Since we already did your
damn dirty work for you.

Still need you.

I'm not doing anything for you.

Not you, Flash.



You will open the breach to First Earth.

My army will cross that breach,

and all the humans in Central City

will burn before Gorilla Kind!

Grodd, you are smart,

maybe smarter than all of us,

smart enough to know
that you cannot do this.

Intelligence and violence,

they're opposites from each other.

What you want to do, it's not logical,

not for someone as wise as you are.

You forget, Flash,

I am an animal.

I am a gorilla.

Kill or be killed!

I'm gonna get out of this
cell, and I'm gonna stop you.

No, you won't.

You will die.

- Snow?
- You okay?


I have a headache, I guess.


And I think...

I... is that me? I smell.

That counts as okay.

Jesse, my daughter. Where's...

She's fine. She's on Earth-1.

She's totally fine.



You guys all came for me?

A city of evil genius apes.

Sounded like fun.

Well, I don't deserve it, but...

thank you, Snow; thank you, Barry,



It's Julian Albert, thank you.

And I came along for...

I live for danger.

Looks like you came to the right place.

I still can't phase through the bars.

We have to find a way out
of here so we can stop him.

You keep saying that, but
what if we can't get out?

What if we're stuck here?
What if this is the way...

Well, we can't think like that.

While there's life, there's hope.

And if there isn't life?

What is that supposed to mean?

Grodd needs me to open the breach

so he can attack Earth-1.

What if I wasn't alive to do that?

You planning on dying?

Only if you kill me.

Look, this is something
we have to consider.

Right now, I can't think of
any other way to stop them.

They'd have no other way
of getting to Central City.

He's right.

Cisco's death would change

the newspaper headline in the future.

- Headline?
- It's a long story.

But it would also make
another one come true,

the one about Killer Frost.

You want me to kill you?

Think about it.

Grodd doesn't know you have cold powers.

You might be able to use them.

Cold powers?

She... you have cold powers?

I knew it. I knew that you and I

did not get Barry out of that mirror.

Wait, now. Caitlin.

If you kill someone,

there's no going back.

You'll be Killer Frost
for the rest of your life.

Now, I did not come all
this way to see that happen.

Did you come here because
you "live for danger"

or to protect me?

I just don't want to see you
become something you're not.

Okay, Cisco.

I'm not gonna kill you, and
neither is anyone else, okay?

So let's come up with the next best plan

that doesn't involve
murdering one of our friends.

No, Cisco's right.

It's the only way.

One of us has to die.




What you doing up there?

Just, uh, hanging out.

What're you... what're
you thinking about?

Wally. He wants me
to stay here with him.


Yeah, he does.

Guy is no dummy. Congratulations.

Oh, that's great. Love...

nothing like young love.

Yeah, I just... I don't...

I don't know if it's the right thing.


He's on his own journey.

Besides, my dad just
got captured by gorillas.

And if... if he does come back,

how could I ever tell him I'm leaving?

Well, 'cause you're human.

That's... that's how. That's what we do.

Look, my point is this.

When it comes to love,

you got to go for it.

You know? Everything else be damned.

'Cause if you don't,

you're gonna end up being
the kind of person that lives

the rest of their life with regret.

I mean, I know that telling your
dad that, you know, you're...

you're switching Earths,

that's gonna be a difficult
conversation to have,

but one that you've to go for...

if you want to be happy.

But that's, you know, just my opinion.

What do I know?

I'm just a handsomer guy than your dad

with a song in his
heart. Good luck, Jesse.

He started coughing... violently.

And then he clutched
his side and keeled over.

The injury...

it must have ruptured
one of his kidneys.

He went into shock.

His heart stopped.

I couldn't resuscitate him.


He's dead.

He was of no use to me anyway.

He's gone, Barry.

Grodd is gone.

Come on, mate.

Yo, it worked!


It worked.

Allen, Allen, you all right, mate?

Yeah. Yeah, I'm good.

I didn't freeze you too much, did I?

No. I'm good.

Well, then...

let's get the hell out of here.



- All right.
- Hallelujah.

Let's go.

All right.

We should be far enough out that you
should be able to use your powers.

- We need a breach open right now.
- Guys, we got to go

before they realize we're gone!

It's too late for that.

- Run!
- Run!

Open a breach!

Time to warp out of this madhouse.

All right, go.

Hey, gang, who wants to take
their mind off their troubles

with a "sure to take your mind off
your troubles" game of charades?

I'll go first. Okay.

Ah, let's see. Movie... I mean...

one word.



- You okay?
- Good, yeah.

I'm sorry you guys missed it.

I ain't.


Word of advice:

don't volunteer for these things.

Nothing ever tries to
rip you limb from limb

if you don't volunteer.

I'm fine. I'm so fine, thanks...

thanks to our friends,

our good friends.

You're welcome, Harry.

Wow, I... I think...

I just forgot how handsome you were.

Oh, I forgot.

He's... you're still here.


Still here.

I guess we have your
tactical and technical genius

to thank for getting us out of that fix.

No, no, nah.



You were completely right about him.

He's a total fraud. He's
not even a scientist.

And I'm sure you couldn't even
remember an ATM code if you tried.

All those... all those numbers.

It's only four digits.
Why is he still here?

Because we couldn't do it without him.

I thank you, Francisco.

Fran... Francisco?

Don't ask.

Yo, so what actually happened?

You fight some really
super-smart apes, or what?

Yeah. Yeah, we did.

And they were smart,
but today, at least,

we were a bit smarter.

How's he doing?

He's gonna be okay.

He's got some cuts and bruises,

but Caitlin said he just
needs food and a little sleep.


Hey, I'm...

I'm sorry for being an
epic basket case lately.

My, um... my dad was kidnapped once,

and it turns your world.

You turn my world, Wally.

Look, I... I need you to
be honest about something.

Of course.

When my dad wakes up,

if I tell him that I love him

and I'll always be his daughter

but that I want to move to Earth-1,

what would you think about...

That's what I think.

I'm glad we think alike.

I see you're...

you took my love advice.

You know, when it comes
to scientific advice,

mine is sometimes specious,

but when it comes to
affairs of the heart,

well, I consider myself a genius.

Okay, yeah, we're gonna go now.

- Yeah.
- Yeah.

Okay, great.

Congratulations. I'm happy for you.

Invite me to the wedding.

He's gonna be so pissed.



Listen, if I overstepped, then...

I apologize.

Just, after drinks the other night...

You were willing to
risk your life for me?

I've been doing a lot
of silly things recently.

I thought adding one more to
the list wouldn't do any harm.

I like you, Julian. I do.

And I like that you like me.

But I'm also afraid of my powers...

and not what they could do to me,

but what they could do to
anyone who gets close to me.

- Caitlin, I'm not afraid.
- You should be.

Fear me, Julian.

It's not a threat, just...

good advice.

Okay, fine.

I'll fear you.

You know what really
helps me when I'm scared?


Just a good fillet steak...

bit of béarnaise on the side,

mashed potatoes... does
the trick ever time.

- Really?
- I promise.

I think we should find
a local steak house

and be terrified together.

Sure. Together it is.

- Well...
- Hmm.

- We did it.
- You did it.

No, uh, we all did it.

We changed the future
without changing who we are.

If we can keep doing this,

we can stop Savitar.

Wherever he is, however
he's gonna come at us,

I can stop him.

I know it now.

How do you do that?

Do what?

Stay positive in the
face of overwhelming odds.

Because I plan on living
a long life with you,

and nothing's gonna
take that away from me.


So does that mean no more nightmares?

You're finally gonna
get some sleep tonight?

Well... that last part
is entirely up to you.


Like I told Flash,

always think ahead.

Now you will open the breaches

and very soon,

Central City will fall before Grodd.
