The Flash (2014–…): Season 7, Episode 10 - Family Matters, Part 1 - full transcript

Psychgoes on a vendetta against those he believes have wronged him. Barry tries to train Alexa to draw on Fuerza, while Deon teams up with Nora to take down his "brother" and "sister". Meanwhile, Joe makes a drastic decision when he learns what Kramer's plan for the future hold.

You back off, lady.

Oh, Deon.

Past, present or future,
you can't run from me.

Who said I'm going to run?

Maybe I could just
snap my fingers...

send you back a
thousand years in time.

By the time you get
back? Oh, I'll be long gone.

Now that is no way
to treat your big sister.

I don't have a sister.

Yes, you do.

Look inside yourself.

Your stillness knows
my speed, little brother.

We're connected, you and I.

I know you can feel it.

Well, hey, maybe
we are the same.

Okay, who cares?
I don't know you.

Yes, you do. We were
born at the same time.

What? Lady, you're nuts!

First, you show
up trying to kill me,

now you want to chat like
we're in Sunday school?

Nah. I ain't falling for that.

Oh, Deon.

We may have come
into this world together,

but this isn't my first time.

Which means...

I could kill you at any moment.

And I still might.

Then do it or get
out of my face.

You're right.

I don't want you dead...

but I do want your help.

You and I have a common enemy.

Our father, Barry
Allen, rejected me.

Just like he rejected you.

Tell me something.

How does that make you feel?

Wait, let me get this straight.

I'm a Force of Nature...

Barry's the Flash and
you two birthed me.

That makes you,
what? My parents?

Something like that.

And I have three siblings,

one who just tried to kill me.

Technically, Alexa,
she did kill you,

but your biometrics are
stable, so I think you're fine.

Wait, how did you
bring me back anyway?

We don't actually know.

But according
to my initial tests,

the three of you share the same
bio-kinetic genome sequence.

Kind of like how a parent and
their child share the same DNA.

Exactly, except we're
talking about cosmic DNA.

So you can sense their cells on
a quantum level, and vice versa.

So they can sense one
another? That is so damn cute.

Wait, if we're all connected,

can't the other Forces
sense each other, too?

- If Nora finds them before we do...
- She's gonna kill them.

All right, well, where are we
with finding Deon and Psych?

Chester and I are working
on a tracking system

to locate Deon's temporal
isotopes across timelines.

I'm monitoring the data while he's
out there setting up the sensors.

And The Citizen is
looking into Psych.

We're going to see if we
can ID his human identity.

If we can do that,
we can find him.

Well, we better do it fast.

I've been seeing
intermittent spikes

of Nora's isotopic
signature all across the city,

and there's been a ton of
reports of spontaneous lightning.

Your firstborn is pissed.

She's going to
come after me again.

And if she does,
we will protect you.

How? You couldn't the last time.

She's not going to this time.

We're gonna train you
to control your powers.

Wait, you want me to
control that monster?

Think about it. Nora needed
me to help to take you down.

If you could
control your powers,

I don't think she'd be
able to hurt you again.

What if I hurt you or kill
someone else during this training?

I can't hurt anyone else.

We'll make sure you don't.

Let us help you.

You leaving?

Yeah, Iris put me on Psych duty.

It is an all-hands-on-deck
kind of day.

Yeah, this whole
fighting Big Bads thing?

Definitely not gonna miss it.

Hey, what do you
think about Miami?

Great mojitos,
excellent NBA team.

What, are you thinking about
booking a vacation, like, now?

No, I meant to live after
we leave Central City.

I've been submitting my
work to a few art galleries,

and this one in South
Beach is interested.

Plus, I do love a good mojito.

You're already job hunting.

Yeah. Aren't you?


Okay. Well, we should
probably tell the team soon.

I've got to give Iris enough
time to find a new photographer.

- Bye.
- Bye.

Fine. Just call me
when the deal's done.


That's my name, you idiot.


Who said that?

Who's here?


Seems like your short
game still needs some work.

Who are you?

- And what do you want?
- Aw.

You don't remember me?


Let's see if I can't
jog your memory.


How are you doing this?

It's kind of a long story.

To be honest with you, it's
been a bit of a nightmare.

How about I share it with you?

That was Caleb Fairweather,
the billionaire tech guy.

What happened to him?

According to the paramedics,

mental distress and symptoms
consistent with narcolepsy.

That was the mayor's office.

It turns out that Caleb is
the fourth billionaire today

they found like this.

Hold on.

Yeah, I'm picking up a ton of
electrochemical isotopes in here.

Caleb was attacked by Psych?

I don't get it.

You both were attacked by Psych
and you didn't end up like that.


I'm needed at C.C.P.D.

Let me know if you
find out anything.

What are you thinking?

Well, we both assumed Psych
had an axe to grind with the system,

because he was attacking
banks and the stock market.

But now he's going
after individual people.

- Why the change?
- Yeah, I know. Feels personal.

Maybe there's something
here that explains the escalation.

I'm guessing that's not
Caleb's college chess club.


More like an Ivy League society.


My dad did say that four other
wealthy targets were attacked today.

If Psych is targeting
people in this group, then...

Start training Alexa
as fast as you can.

I'm going to try and figure
out who's next on Psych's list.


I thought you were
headed upstate.

As a result of the Frost case,

the governor wants me
to stick around a bit longer.

Have a seat, Captain.

I'm trying to find the
source of this city's

meta-criminal problem.
And I need your help.

There seem to be
a whole lot of cases

where meta-criminals
simply disappear around here.

Like this Rainbow Raider.

One minute he's in C.C.P.D.
custody, the next, missing.

Any thoughts?

None whatsoever.

Okay, then.

Who else worked these cases?

Patty Spivot. Reassigned.

Julian Albert. Also reassigned.

Hm. Barry Allen's still here.

Can you do me a favor?

Send him in.

Maybe he knows
something we don't.

He's on a case.

I'll see if I can pull him off.

Thank you.

Don't worry. This force field
can handle just about anything.

futuristic meta-villains.

You've done this before?

Oh, yeah.

But you should know

I've reinforced this baby
with inverse surge capabilities.

The harder you push against
it, the stronger it's going to get.

Even Fuerza can't
fight herself, right?


You named it "Strength"?

I guess that makes sense.

What now?

You initiate a change.

The key is to focus,

control the transformation
into Fuerza from the start.

So try to stay calm
when I change?

Are you gonna
teach me to meditate?

I mean, it's really just
about your breathing.

Focus on that
while you transform

and we'll keep track of
the physiological effects.

You sure I'm ready for this?

If Nora shows up again, you
need to be able to protect yourself.

We'll go slow.

I don't think I can do this.

Yes, you can. Just try to
remember how you felt the last time.

I can't.

Alexa, you have to.

Excuse me, Ms. LaSalle?

Hi. I'm Iris West-Allen with
The Central City Citizen...

If you're looking for a
quote on our recent merger,

you'll have to
contact publicity.

No, actually, we're here because

you were the president
of the League of Lions.

Is this for that
alumni newsletter?

Here's a quote. I'm wealthier than
the whole League combined now.

Ms. LaSalle, please.

There is a meta-human that is
targeting members of that League.

And four of your Richie Rich
friends have already been attacked.

We believe you and the other man
in this photo are the next victims.

If you could just
tell us his name.

Lucas Sharpe.

He's into apps and
alternative energy sources.

Bit of a do-gooder.

Prosperity equals power.

And judging by this empire
that you've built up for yourself,

it appears you followed the
League's motto to a tee, Naomi.


I know that voice.

Smashing costume, Bashir.

It's not working. I don't know
how to bring that thing out.

It's because
you're holding back.

I've got isotopes downtown!

So, Naomi...

I've been catching
up with the old gang.

Swapping stories. It's
been a lot of fun for me.

And now it's your turn.

Last time I saw you, you got
thrown out of the yacht club

because you couldn't
pay your dues.

It's true.

The regatta life
was never for me.

I was so right about you.

The others thought
you deserved a chance,

but I knew you'd never fit in.

Let me guess.

You're broke again and now
you want another handout?

Sorry, Bashir. You want help?

Help yourself.

- Don't mind if I do.
- Bashir!

You don't have to do this.

Oh, yes, I really do.

Whew. Back for another
round, huh, Flash?

Psych, you need to listen to me.

You're in danger.

There are other Forces
out there who are trying to...


So you're Dad?

Life is just full of
little surprises, isn't it?

Your scans show pattern
bruising from where Psych...

Bashir attacked you.

What did he show you this time?

He didn't show me anything,
but his powers are growing.

I mean, somehow he was able to

manifest tentacles that
could move as fast as me.

So we've got a fifth comatose
billionaire in the hospital

and an evil magenta
Sage guru with tentacles?

Magentacles, if you will.

We're gonna have to
change up our plan, I think.

Well, Iris is trying to
locate Bashir's final target.

We need to be ready.

Right. To do what exactly?

I mean, maybe I'm not
strong enough to stop Bashir.

But Fuerza is.

Wait, you want me to fight him?

Hey, uh...

Just long enough
to subdue Bashir,

so hopefully we can
get through to him.

What if I accidentally kill him?

Well, you won't if you can
get a handle on your powers,

which is why we've got
to continue your training.

Cisco, are the isotopic
arc radiators still functional?

They need a couple
tweaks, but yeah.

I'm sorry, you want
to force Fuerza out?

Yeah, yeah. I mean,
we're running out of time.

Barry, you can't push
Fuerza out until Alexa's ready.

It's too dangerous.


This is about more than
protecting yourself from Nora now.

If Bashir uses these new powers
on the city, people will get hurt.

I know you're scared,
but we still need your help.

And this Bashir
guy, he's really bad?

He's pretty much the worst.


Bashir Malik.

His name was listed on the
League of Lions' member page.

Class of '08. He is the adoptive
son of Adrita and Paul Malik,

owners of Malik Hotels.

He was a rich
kid, but it says here

the Maliks died in a
plane crash 13 years ago.

He was orphaned twice?
First by his birth parents

and then by his
adoptive parents.

And it gets worse.

When the Maliks' plane went
down, there were $50 million in debt.

They were fleeing the
country for tax evasion,

and they left Bashir behind.

And I thought my
family was messed up.

That's why he hates his parents.

They abandoned him, and
they weren't the only ones.

Naomi told him
he never belonged.

You think when he went broke,
his friends just bailed on him, too?

Yeah, that's why
he's targeting them.

He felt burned by
his parents, his friends

and the system that made him.

Now he's out for revenge.

So who's next on the list?

Lucas Sharpe. I ran
his picture and got a hit.

He wasn't at his
home or his work,

and all of his social media
accounts were recently deleted.

He's on the run.

I called Cisco. S.T.A.R.'s search
protocols are up and running.

But, Iris, even if we find
Lucas, what's our plan?

I mean, you've tried
talking to Bashir twice now,

and it still hasn't worked.

Well, because I didn't
know what to say.

I think I was trying
to be a mother figure

when I should have
been a journalist.

Getting all of the information
before running a story.

And do you think
there's more to his?

Yeah. We need to dig deeper.

Find what you're looking for?

I checked out the armament
delivery you signed for this morning.

Seeing as I didn't authorize it.

These bullets contain the
meta-human cure, don't they?

Thirty cc's each, yes.

If meta-humans are
threatening the public good,

we need to be able to
protect the people of this city.

This is illegal.

No, there's just no
precedent for them. Yet.

You didn't get the results
you wanted in court,

so now you're trying to
figure out another way

to eliminate meta-criminals.

Meta-criminals are
dangerous, Captain.

The people of this city
can see it. Why can't you?

The last time we talked,
I asked you to make sure

you're on the right
side of the line.

Now you're going to go out there
and shoot up metas with the cure?

When it comes to meta-human
affairs, I have full authority

to use extreme measures in
emergency combat situations.

This is still my precinct.
Around here, we take the time

to deescalate the situation
before it becomes combative.

That's what this precinct did,

and your city hasn't been safe.

So we're doing
things my way now.

I don't think so. I'll contact
the Governor's office...

The Governor
authorized the order.

I'm still hoping that we can
work together on this, Captain.

But this is the new line now.

Figure out which
side of it you're on

and let me know.

All right, remember,

the radiators release
isotopes that'll bring out Fuerza.

So you don't have
to do anything.

Just try to stay conscious
during the transformation.

That's the first step
to maintaining control.

If I start to lose control,

promise me you'll
turn these things off.

Of course we will.

Also, I've got backup.

You ready?

Releasing isotopic waves... now.

Remember, Alexa,
you're in control.

I can't. I don't want to do it.

You can.

I said, I don't want to do this.

Guys, her biometrics
are spiking,

I'm going to reduce
her isotopic exposure.

Don't. Alexa, you can do this.

Uh, that's a problem.

Guys, she's getting
blue and angry.

It'll take 30 seconds for the
isotopic effects to wear off.

We don't have 30 seconds.
She's overloading the force field.

If we don't shut it down,
this thing's going to blow

and then we're all toast.

I'm shutting it down now.


I told you I
couldn't control it.

Is he gonna be all right?

He needs to rest, but
he'll make a full recovery.

All right, we should
get back to work.

Barry, why don't we take
a break from training?

Look, I know this is a
setback, but we can't stop.

Lives are on the line.

Don't you know
what just happened?

- We can't train that thing.
- Alexa, we don't have a choice...

You don't. I do. And I
won't be your weapon.

I'm done with this,
and I am done with you.

- Wait, Alexa...
- Barry.

- What?
- What are you doing?

She needs to train.

She just found out two days ago
that she has this Force inside of her.

She needs time to process that.

Look, I'm trying to
teach her how to survive.

- Well, she's not ready.
- Well, she has to be.

All right? Look, it's my fault
that Nora wants her dead.

That means it's my
responsibility to keep her safe.

Training her is the only
way I know how to do that.

I am not saying that we don't
train her when she's ready.

Right now, what Alexa
needs from you is patience.

When you first got your powers,
Thawne spent months training you.

Your greatest enemy
was more patient with you

than your being with
your own... daughter.

Think about that.

While I try and stop you
from pushing another kid away.

Kramer's going to start a war.

She's going after every
meta with a record.

And she's being smart about it.
She's doing everything by the book.

Oh, you almost
respect her, don't you?

I know that there is a good
cop in there somewhere

that cares about the safety
of people. But not like this.

What's all this?

These are all the purchases made
by Kramer on behalf of C.C.P.D.

I also have former case files coming
from Keystone, Gotham, Coast City

later today.

It's about time somebody
investigated her.

Joe, I just I went
up against Kramer.

That woman knows
how to handle herself.

Plus, she's got the
Governor on her side.

What are you saying?
I should back down?

Joe, it has got
to be her choice.

Otherwise, she is never
going to back down.

So until that happens, what are
you gonna do to help her get there?

Should you be working right now?

You're still recovering.

I'm just a little
sore, I'll be all right.

Oh, my gosh.

That gallery in Miami wants
to schedule an interview.

And you don't seem that excited.

Did you know that I'm qualified

for 7,685 jobs in the US alone?

Eighty-three of them in Miami.

And trust me, I know how
lucky I am to be able to say that.

But if I'm being honest,

I have no clue what I'm
supposed to be doing right now.

I never told anyone this, but
when we were at Cleary Capital,

and Psych whammied
me and Barry and Frost

and he showed us
our worst nightmares,

you know what I saw?

I saw myself 40 years from now,

I was still working
at S.T.A.R. Labs.

And that's a bad thing?

No, not entirely.

I mean, I've learned a lot
here, and I've made family here.

But in this nightmare...

everybody had moved on.

And I hadn't.

It was just me.

And I felt this insane regret,

not even trying to do
anything else with my career.

I don't want that future.

So, what the hell
am I supposed to do?


I know this is a big decision.

But you don't have
to make it right now.

Just give it time. The
right job will find you.

I know it seems safer,

but running away
won't solve anything.

I don't have a choice. When
you turned that machine off,

I could feel that monster
fighting against me

as I was changing back.
It wanted to stay out.

What if I never control it?

You will. Just like I did.

Do you know the
meta-human Frost?

She and I used to share a body.

When Frost first surfaced,
she did horrible things,

and I was terrified.

I tried to control
her with meta-cuffs.

I didn't even try
to understand her.

But then, after
a while, I realized

that there was good
inside that other part of me.

How'd you do that?

By talking to Frost. With this.

It's a mental activity dampener.

It uses neural pathways to
connect multiple consciousnesses.

It's how we talked
to each other.

- I could hear that thing in my head?
- Mm-hm.

It will take time, but I think
that's just what you two need.

Or maybe you just want
me to start training again.

Forget the training.

I should have listened to you

when you said you weren't ready.

I wanted to say I'm sorry.

If you need more time
to process this, you got it.

Whatever you want
to do, we'll do it.

Thanks for saying that.

I guess what I want to do is...

try to get in sync
with my other half.

Satellites are picking up
Lucas Sharpe's license plate.

He's headed north on I-95.

Hang on.

We've got Bashir's Force signal
heading Sharpe's way, and fast.

Fill the jet. I'm
ten minutes out.

Hi, Lucas.


Oh, my God, where have
you been all these years?

That's an interesting question.

You know, I guess I
could have been out there

trying to find myself,

traveling to Prague
or the Amalfi Coast.

Really living the
dream like all of you did.

But I couldn't do that...

because I couldn't get
my friends out of my mind.

I tried to get in touch. I
was worried about you.

You did? Oh, that's so sweet.

I'm sure you thought
about me every day.

Sure, sure, sure. Hey, listen.
Now that I've got you here,

could I pick your
brain about something?

For old time's sake.

Guys, Lucas Sharpe is the
last person on Bashir's hit list.

- And if Bashir gets to him first...
- There's one more thing.

There's more to Bashir's
story than we knew.

If you can get him to listen,

then I can tell you
what to say to him.

- Okay, stay on comms.
- I'm coming with you.

Alexa, you don't have to.

I know. I want to.

Look, Bash. Come
on. We were friends.

Whatever you want,
we can work it out.

Oh, Lucas, you
always were the optimist

in our little cabal
of spoiled rich brats.

Of course, that's not
going to help you now.

No, no, no, please, please.

You couldn't stop the others,

so instead you watched
them destroy my life.

That makes you just as guilty.

Now you're going
to pay, just like them!


Why don't you come
out and show yourself?

Are you afraid?

Do you fear me, Flash?


You know, it doesn't matter
where you stashed him.

I will hunt Lucas down.

No, you won't. We
won't let you hurt him.

We? Who's this?

Oh, I have a baby sister.

Don't care.

Bashir, listen. Iris and I know
what your parents did to you,

but you can't keep
punishing the world for it.

Actually, yes, I can.

I don't know if you can hear me,

but I'm not afraid
of you anymore.

What if Alexa's not ready?

Fuerza might be the
muscle, but after everything

she's been through, I think
Alexa might be stronger.


And Fuerza, together.

You are a very big baby sister.

Not that it's going to matter.

Bashir, you don't
have to fight us.

Yes, I do, Dad.

Can't you see we're
just trying to help you?

Don't bother.

Bashir, listen!

It doesn't have to be this way.

Tell him that we're
not like his parents,

- and neither were his friends.
- Caleb, Lucas and the others,

they never gave up on you.

That's a lie. All they ever
cared about was money.

No, they cared about you more.

After your parents died,

they started a fund to help
you get back on your feet.

Iris found bank statements
and donation receipts

all in your name,

Bashir Adil Malik.

You didn't know because you pushed
them away when they reached out.

No. No, no, no.

Naomi would never help me.

You're right about that.

Naomi turned her back on you. So
you assumed the others would, too.

But they didn't.

They wanted to help.

So do we.

No, no, no. There's no
way. This can't be true.

No, it is. Don't push us away
like you have with everyone else.

You always wanted a real family.

Give us a chance.

We can be your family.

There's no such thing.

You don't know my pain.

You're right,
Bashir, they don't.

But I do, because my
past is just as dark as yours.

I've been clean for five years.

But when I was at my lowest, I
drove away everyone I ever loved.

My own parents won't
even talk to me anymore.

I know what real
loneliness feels like.

But at some point,

the walls we build need to
come down or they will crush us.

And when they do, the people
who still want to be there for you,

that's real family. That's us.


We'll wait for you,
Bashir, as long as it takes.

The choice is yours... brother.

Okay, thanks.

Bashir's victims are awake.
They're going to be okay.

What are you guys doing?

Barry and Alexa are bringing
a monster into our house.

- Two, actually.
- Can't be too careful.

That's probably wise.


There's a lot of
fear in this place.

I like it.

It's okay.

He's decided to
give family a try.

For now.

I'm not sure if I'm
sticking around.

Hey, you know those rifles

and whatever those
gloves are supposed to be,

that's not going to help
you. You know that, right?

Just a heads-up.

Don't make me angry.

You got lucky the first time.

You wanna roll the
dice on round two?

- I think I have to...
- I gotta call Frost.

- I have a thing...
- Sorry.

You guys got this, right?


Look, both of you, stand down.

We're on the same team now.

Her first.

Yeah, this is new for all of us,

so let's just take
it slow, all right?


You wanted to see me?


I need to talk to you about
what happened today.

Okay, I'm listening.

As Captain, it's hard
to watch the ideals

that you built your whole
career on get stripped away.

I know, you're just doing
your job. I respect that.

It's just that I wish...

I wish...

that you could try to understand
what this city really needs.

Because, see, it's not just
black and white, or even gray...

I do things by
the book, Captain.

Maybe, but it's gonna take

a whole lot more than that
when it comes to protecting

the people of Central City.
Only you can't see that.

And since your "by the book"

is nowhere near mine...

Do you realize
what you're doing?


I'm staying on the
right side of the line.

So now you know
everything we do.

Okay, so you got four kids,

two of which are so pissed
off, they want to kill you.

This is why some people
shouldn't have children.

You are such an ass.

I'm direct, sis.
There's a difference.

Look, the point is, Nora
will come after you, too.

Yeah, only if she's as
nuts as you say she is.

She is. Trust me.

Yeah, well, we'll see. Either
way, I'm not scared of her.

- It's not that simple.
- You're not that simple.

Alexa's right. We can't
underestimate Nora.

As the Speed Force, she is
different than the rest of you.

She's been around
since the dawn of time.

And I thought I was dramatic.

You can't beat her. Not
alone. None of us can.

Which is why we need to
find Deon as soon as possible.

You're welcome.

I'm sorry.

Nora, please...

You made me do this, Barry.

It's done.
