The Flash – S07E16 – P.O.W. [Transcript]

John Diggle arrives in Central City with a weapon to help Barry stop the Godspeed War; Allegra and Ultraviolet's new bond is put to the ultimate test, while Joe and Kristin Kramer are hunted by a former colleague of hers.
The Flash - S07E16 - P.O.W.

Original air date: July 6, 2021

Barry dreams about Nora again, who warns him that her future is in danger. John Diggle arrives and helps Barry trap a Godspeed drone, who reveals that they are searching for the “prime” August Heart, and requests Barry’s aid in killing him, but escapes after Barry refuses. Diggle convinces Barry to go to 2049 to check on Nora, but he is knocked out of the Speed Force by Godspeed drones. Barry then finds Deon protecting Iris, who is inexplicably phasing through temporal planes. Diggle, Cecile, and Frost find an amnesiac Heart, but soon make him remember his identity. Following this, Diggle vows to resolve something he has “been putting off”. Meanwhile, after Caitlin treats her, Esperanza requests Allegra’s help in stopping other Black Hole remnants, but Allegra refuses. However, Barry’s actions prompt her to join Esperanza if only to witness her cousin’s death. Elsewhere, Joe and Kramer trap their attacker, Creyke, who reveals he betrayed Kramer and the military as revenge for experiments he endured due to his abilities. Joe stops Kramer from killing Creyke and they arrest him. Afterwards, Nora arrives from 2049 alongside Bart Allen, Barry’s future son.

The city is in chaos and hospitals are overwhelmed.

CCPD advises you, stay indoors as the violent speedster war escalates…

Iris!

I need to get back out there.

Dad!

Something’s wrong.

Our family…

[chokes]

The future…

It’s all changed.

[choking]

Flash has to do something before it’s too late!

[chokes]

Nora!

What’s happening?

[whooshing]

[sirens wailing]

People are getting attacked in their offices, their cars, their own homes!

And seemingly at random.

[monitor beeps]

So…

Godspeeds are attacking folks in their homes now?

You mean I could just be hanging out at home listening to my Nas-Nasty-Nas, drinking coffee, and a whole Godspeed could just…

Ah, the Godspeeds are gone again.

You’re hurt. What happened?

They ambushed me while I was evacuating City Hall.

I barely made it out in one piece.

Okay, let’s get you to the med lab.

Chester, can you call Iris?

Yeah, sure.

No, no.

She’s still home feeling sick. Let her rest.

Frost is out there helping.

Chester, how long was it before they showed up this time?

About eight hours.

But their movements are unpredictable and we still have no idea where they’re going once they disappear.

Can we figure out when they’re gonna come back next?

I could start working on a predictive algorithm.

Right, okay. If there’s a pattern to their freaky-deaky moves, I’ll find it.

Even if we figure out when they’re gonna attack next, we still have no idea what these new clones want.

The original six want your speed.

And just as they were gonna get it, six more showed up and saved you.

Right, but why?

[gasps in pain]

Why?

I mean, how do we stop a civil war if we don’t even understand why both sides are fighting each other?

Hey.

Has anybody heard from Joe?

He left town with Kramer hours ago.

I haven’t been able to get a hold of him.

I think I know why.

This Godspeed war is causing a buildup of electricity, shielding Central City in what’s essentially a faraday cage.

Any electronic signal is being totally contained inside.

So no one in the city

can text or call the outside world right now.

I’m sorry.

Cecile, if there’s one thing Joe knows how to do, it’s take care of himself.

And right now, anywhere’s safer than Central City.

[both breathing heavily]

So that was Creyke.

How did you know he had us in his sights?

That light.

I’d recognize the signature of Adam’s pulse rifle anywhere.

[sighs]

You okay?

I’m alive, so I’m good.

We need to get backup, though.

[phone beeps]

Damn it. I can’t get a signal.

He’s jamming cell service to keep us isolated.

Which means he knows we didn’t die in that blast.

We need to keep moving.

[winces in pain]

Easy.

You still have six broken ribs and some internal bleeding.

Another hour of speed healing, I’ll be fine.

Those Godspeeds will be back soon.

I need to be ready.

Look…

I’ve patched you up enough times to know that this isn’t about some broken bones or clones, or… even Iris being under the weather.

I had a dream about Nora.

My Nora, from the future.

It was the second dream, actually.

This time, she was so afraid.

She told me the future had changed and… I needed to do something.

I know it was just a dream, but… Caitlin, I’m really worried.

Godspeed was Nora’s enemy from 2049.

If all these other Godspeeds are here now, what does that mean for the future of my family?

What if it somehow means…

Your Nora doesn’t exist anymore.

You could… go check on her.

Run to the future.

I want to, but I’d risk causing another Flashpoint.

Plus, more Godspeeds could show up at any moment.

Then you wouldn’t be here to fight them.

I get it. You’re right.

I can’t leave.

Not while there’s a civil war in the city.

Maybe I can help with that.

John?

Dig!

Barry, Caitlin.

I brought you something.

What is it?

If we’re lucky, a way to end this war before someone gets killed.

It’s called an entropy trap.

And hopefully, it’s gonna save your city.

Wait, wait, wait, wait.

So you’re saying that John Diggle is gonna help us end the Godspeed war?

AKA Spartan, AKA Oliver Queen’s right-hand man, AKA the heart and soul of Team Arrow?

[chuckles]

Yeah.

[laughter]

And this is something that Cisco cooked up after you called him and gave him the 411 on Central City.

Dig, when we reached out for help, I had no idea he was gonna send you.

He didn’t.

I volunteered, man.

You’re fighting a war, Barry.

I know something about that.

And with a battle-tested soldier like you on our side, we’re gonna win.

Chester.

Big fan, man, big fan.

Thanks.

All right, guys, you might want to stand back.

[♪ ♪]

Whoa, dog!

So the plasmatic wave eliminates all entropy from any object or person.

Yup.

Freezing it in time.

Guys…

If we could trap one of these Godspeeds, find a way to communicate with it…

We can find out what they want and why they’re fighting.

And end this thing.

Once we’ve caught one, we’ll bring it back here for questioning.

Whoa, whoa, whoa.

You want to invite the enemy into your house, Barry?

Is that a good idea?

Look, these new Godspeeds saved my life last night.

If there’s any chance of finding allies in this war, it’s with them.

Right.

[winces in pain]

[faint sharp humming]

Are you all right?

Yeah.

Yeah, I’m fine.

[inhales]

Let’s go catch a speedster.

This band is made of the same metal alloy as your mask, so your body won’t reject it.

It’ll maintain the laryngeal structure.

All right, you’re good to go.

No more updates, no more surgeries.

I’ll let you two catch up.

You going somewhere?

I have work to do.

[scoffs]

This is on some old Black Hole security squad.

Wait… are you serious?

You’re going after the dregs of Black freakin’ Hole before your anesthesia’s even worn off?

You have a death wish?

Those who survived Carver’s reign are digging up old bank accounts.

Giving money to those same doctors who hurt me.

Speaking in Spanish…

I get it. These are bad dudes.

Like, really bad.

But they can wait, ’cause you have to heal first.

I have a chance to stop them now.

I may not get another.

What about your chance at a new beginning?

Caitlin just saved your voice and probably your life.

You really wanna risk it for some Black Hole scum?

Damn it, Esperanza, you are not strong enough to fight them.

So help me!

So you can get more blood on your hands?

No!

Fine.

No killing.

But we will do this together.

As a family.

I can’t.

It has to wait.

There is a war going on, prima.

A whole lot of lives are in danger.

This city needs me.

Team Flash needs me.

I need you.

Those doctors will torture others if I do nothing.

Just… wait.

As soon as this is over, I promise…

I will help you.

[intense music] [whooshing]

The clones are back.

Seems like they came back awfully fast this time.

Flash, we got company.

[car alarms blaring]

I’m ready, Chester. Do it.

[monitor beeps]

Signal activated.

[high-pitched tone]

Okay, Flash’s suit is emitting a signal identical to the original Godspeeds.

So the new Godspeeds will think that he’s their rival…

When he’s really bait.

[soft dramatic music]

So… word at A.R.G.U.S. is you are leveling up, Cecile.

Hmm.

Didn’t know you guys kept tabs on us ordinary people.

I guess that means you’re far from ordinary.

Speaking of, can you sense what’s going on inside his mind?

No, Barry already had me try, and the only thing that I could feel was… hatred.

And determination.

Why isn’t he trying to make contact with the rest of his team?

Oh, he’s trying.

But I’m sending out serious interference.

He can’t get through.

She’s our own personal signal jammer.

That’d come in handy in the field.

This whole team is leveling up.

Guys, it might not understand me.

You think it might be a… drone?

Maybe.

Queue up your translator.

A translation will not be necessary.

[mysterious music]

So you can speak.

Yes.

And we have much to discuss, Barry Allen.

[tense music]

[♪ ♪]

Now where, oh, where could you be?

Hmm?

[sighs]

You want to tell me why he’s trying to kill us?

No idea.

Killing’s what the army taught him to do, so… we need to move.

Hey, if we head north, we could hit the main road in about an hour.

I’m not letting him go.

I’m not going into a suicide mission.

Look, you do what you have to do.

The 12 soldiers Adam killed were my family.

I promised I would do whatever it takes to get them justice.

Justice is that way.

So while I’m gonna do whatever it takes to finish this, I won’t ask you to do the same.

Hey, hey, I’m not gonna let you go after him alone.

I got your back, but, Kramer if he did everything he could do to make sure you weren’t part of Operation Griffin, why would he try to kill you now?

He doesn’t know who he’s hunting.

If he doesn’t know who he’s trying to kill, I know how we can catch him.

And I know what we’re gonna need.

Let’s go.

You’ve been listening this whole time.

Why talk now?

I needed to be sure.

In this war, we fight versions of ourselves.

But when two sides are evenly matched, there is no winning.

Only endless suffering.

I know now you are strong.

You are the advantage we need to achieve our goal.

Which is?

To live!

We did not ask to be born, but we do ask not to die.

The others, they want your speed to give to their master, August Heart.

But upon completion of their mission, they will bow down to his final edict.

Total submission.

And once they do, they’ll die?

We do not want that fate.

I understand the need to defend yourselves.

But if you’re from the future, why bring your war here?

We had no choice.

The Prime August Heart is here, in this time.

That’s what they’re all doing.

That’s what they’re doing.

They’re searching for August Heart.

And whoever finds him first… wins the whole damn war.

We are on the same side, you and I.

We have the same goal…

Stop one man from gaining a power so great, it would destroy us all.

So join us, Flash.

And by doing so, you can end this war.

Save your city, save your family.

If I do help… what happens to August Heart once we find him?

We kill him.

Until he is dead, our freedom will be compromised.

I won’t kill.

Not even an enemy.

Then know this…

Anyone who stands in our way will die with him.

[monitor beeping]

Uh, Godspeed’s biometrics show he just tapped into his speed!

Barry, turn on the trap!

Is everyone okay?

How did he get out?

I don’t know.

The meta-cell should have kept him powerless, but…

Oh, man.

Godspeeds are fueled by a velocity formula…

A chemical Speed Force substitute.

Which means he’s an artificial meta, so dampeners wouldn’t do anything.

So why didn’t he just peace out as soon as we unfroze him?

We thought we were interrogating him.

He was interrogating us.

Chester, you have to fix this.

Uh, I’m sorry, but…

Cisco built this core with original Time Trapper tech.

That kind of tech’s one of a kind.

I can’t…

You have to.

It’s the only way to stop one of them.

Barry, this isn’t junk, okay?

Without access to bleeding-edge temporal components, there’s just…

Then find another way!

[sighs]

Chester, Allegra, give me a second with Barry.

[tense music]

[♪ ♪]

So you want to tell me what’s really got you so upset that you’re talking to your teammates like that?

And don’t tell me it’s about some broken tech, Barry.

It’s my daughter.

[breathing heavily]

Nora.

Before she came to join us, she lived in the future.

2049.

The exact time Godspeed’s from.

Okay, and with everything that’s going on, you think it affects the future somehow?

Dig, if… if August Heart is here, wh… what does that mean for Nora?

And the future of our family?

Is she okay?

Will Iris and I still have a family?

Is Nora even alive in the future anymore?

[breathing heavily]

Now all I want to do is run to 2049 and make sure Nora’s okay.

See with my own eyes that my daughter’s safe.

But I can’t do that.

Why not?

Dig, you know better than anyone what could happen if I did.

Besides, man, with this civil war destroying the city staying here to fight is the right thing to do.

No, it’s not.

Barry, I lived a long life here on this earth.

I’ve been a spy, a vigilante, a soldier… hell, I’ve even been the Green Arrow.

The most important job I’ve ever had is as a dad.

And there’s not a bullet I wouldn’t take, there’s not a timeline that I wouldn’t risk changing if it meant protecting my family.

I know that now.

Lyla… my kids, they’re my heart, man.

My soul. My entire world.

How far would I go for them?

As far as it takes.

Everything else be damned.

Don’t be afraid to do the same.

Hey.

Hi.

Godspeeds are gone again.

How you holding up?

Cecile, as long as these Godspeeds are here, I can’t shake the feeling that my family’s future’s in trouble.

That’s why I need to go and make sure my daughter’s okay.

Nora? How?

I’m gonna run to 2049.

[gasps]

It’s… I know.

It’s dangerous, but… I’d risk anything to keep this family safe.

Yeah, well, you and me both.

Which is why I’ve been reading this.

Nora’s journal?

Yeah.

Iris gave it to me.

Apparently… she has been looking for anything

about the original August Heart.

Yeah, I know, even when she’s under the weather, your girl is thinking of ways to help us.

Now, turns out, Nora mentioned a few places that seem personal to Heart.

So if he really is here in 2021, Iris thinks he’s hiding at one of those.

But without the entropy trap, finding Heart first is our best chance at ending this war.

Exactly, and with Iris out of commission, I’m about to go follow up for her.

Cecile, I mean, going after Heart by yourself is dangerous.

Okay.

Then I’ll take John and Allegra with me.

John, maybe you should stay here.

How is this possible?

Look, I don’t know why, but once I sensed it, I knew I had to step in and help.

I’ve been using all my stillness just to stabilize her.

Otherwise she’d fracture through time itself.

I can keep her alive.

Long as she stays here with me.

Well, right now, it’s just a feeling.

Yeah, we need to find a way to prove it.

One way or the other.

It’s what Iris would want.

Based on everything you told us, being with Deon is the safest place for Iris to be right now.

Yeah, I mean, we’ve all seen what the Still Force can do.

If anyone can keep her safe, Deon can.

All right, right now, let’s stay focused on keeping the city safe.

Right, right, okay.

I just finished running the algorithm on the Godspeed disappearances.

Turns out, these clones are coming back exponentially faster each time.

How long do we have?

At first, it was eight hours, then four.

And now?

If we’re lucky, 90 minutes.

This war’s about to go turbo.

Cecile, can you sense anything from this guy?

Yeah, I tried.

The only thing I’m picking up is the same fear that anyone suffering from memory loss would have.

Whoever this person is, he seems like somebody who needs help.

I ran complete diagnostics on him.

There’s no sign of speed powers, organic or artificial.

But take a look at this.

His neurological scans show severe memory degradation.

But his somatic memory cells are still intact, they’re just inactive.

Can we access them?

I could give him a nano dose of neurogenic dark matter.

It might reactivate the cells.

But it’s risky.

And the effects would only be temporary.

I think if there’s a chance that what’s inside his head could save lives, it’s worth trying.

As long as he agrees.

Let’s get the shot ready.

I’ll ask if he’s willing to help.

Tell Cisco that I have scanned every element.

And I am on the case.

If there’s any way to duplicate this Time Trapper tech, we’ll find it.

I know you will.

You got skills, man.

This team is lucky to have you.

[chuckles]

Thanks, man.

So see you soon?

Sure.

Take care of yourself.

Whoa.

[chuckles]

You leaving?

There’s something I’ve been putting off for far too long, and today it nearly got me killed.

And now I have to deal with it.

I get it, it’s… It’s just this war.

We need all the help we can get.

Barry, you think I don’t know that?

And as much as everything inside of me wants to stay and help you fight, in my heart and soul, man, I know I can’t put this off any longer.

All right, well, whatever’s going on, let us know if you need anything.

Yeah.

Thanks, man.

[soft dramatic music]

[♪ ♪]

And Barry?

Good luck.

With everything.

Thanks.

[♪ ♪]

Will this hurt?

No.

Are you sure you want to do this?

I need to know who I am.

And if you think this could really help…

Then… do it.

[exhales]

Can you tell me your name?

My name is…

[gasping]

My name is…

It’s okay.

Take your time.

[grunts]

August.

[♪ ♪]

It’s him, August Heart, the real Godspeed.

Only… that’s all we could get out of him.

His memory loss is too severe.

So even though we found him, we’re back to square one.

Damn it.

Barry, you never said what happened when you went to 2049.

I never made it.

Those clones were blocking my path.

I couldn’t get past them.

Now I can’t check on Nora, plus I can’t help Iris.

This war keeps getting worse.

Cecile, even with all my speed, I’ve never felt so helpless.

Barry… It’s okay to be scared.

And… angry.

But I just need you to save a little bit of room for hope.

‘Cause no matter how bad things might seem right now, we will get through this.

All right, I am, uh, gonna check in with Chester.

He’s trying to help me reach Joe.

All right.

[sighs]

[whooshes]

Hey, Dad!

Nora!

And, yes, before you say anything, I know I’m not supposed to be here, but it’s really important, I promise.

Oh, thank God you’re okay.

[exhales]

Well, like, yeah, why wouldn’t I be?

Because I… Well, I couldn’t get to the future.

And then with Iris gone…

wait, but if you’re here, that means…

Oh, right!

Don’t worry. Mom’s gonna be okay.

I’m proof that everything works out all right.

We both are.

You… you and Iris?

Not… not exactly.

Um…

But, uh… hey!

I mean, if you’re… happy to see me, you’re gonna be twice as happy in just a second.

[whooshes]

Whoo!

Hoo! What did I miss?

Dad, meet your son, Bart.

Hey, Dad!

What’s good?

Or “Pops.” Can I call you Pops yet?

You like it when I call you Pops later.

I can’t remember when that is, though.

Yo, this place is crash!
