The Flash - Harry and the Harrisons

Reaching out for help in questionable places is the common theme throughout "Harry and the Harrisons." First, Harry (Tom Cavanagh) and Cisco (Carlos Valdes) attempt to enlist two separate versions of the Council of Wells in order to get some help with Harry's diminishing intellect. Neither proves useful. Meanwhile, Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) enlists the help of Amunet (Katee Sackhoff) whose powers might just be the key to stopping DeVoe (Neil Sandilands) from launching his satellites (and who may be able to help her reconnect with Caitlin's chillier alter-ego). In order to get Amunet's help, Team Flash must track down more of the villain's missing shards which have been taken by a meta-human (Mark Sweatman) the group has crossed paths with before.

Not surprisingly, Amunet doesn't end up sticking around to help the team with their long-term problems. However, she does leave behind a gift for DeVoe's satellites and a bit of wisdom for Caitlin in her search for Killer Frost. As for Harry, while the Council may not have helped him recover his intellect it may have helped the scientist in another way that may help him easier to live with as well as offer the team some insight on why the super-villain hasn't begun his Enlightenment. The other thread of the episode is a disagreement between Barry and Iris () over her plans on writing an article to expose DeVoe's plans to the world. Barry's decision to trust his wife, and his city, may have given the hero a new tool in the fight to save the world from the dumb-dumb satellites (sorry, not sorry, that's what I'm calling them from now on).
