The civil war between the Godspeeds, a deranged August Heart, and Team Flash is gearing towards a wrap-up. The West-Allen adolescents time-traveled from 2049 to help the team but an inexplainable connection between Bart/ Impulse and Godspeed applied everyone’s sciences to exam. Seeing his son Bart’s health comprised after Jay Garrick’s rescue mission, Barry plans to end this once for all by record August’s sentiment to find out his deepest desire.

In this week’s episode, the’ real’ August Heart reacts The Flash inside his dominion to discover what he’s actually after — organic hurry. August, a scientist himself, developed an artificial race serum in the future but that had its own side-effects, one of which made him dementia in the current timeline. He offers The Flash a transaction, to relieve Central City of conflict in return for his speed.

This successful recon simply leaves Team Flash with a larger conundrum than they imagined, and when August discovers out who he really is, he can’t stop feeling guilty for something he does in the future. He shares his concern with Cecile while she comforts him with her empath powers.

As Caitlin is busy trying to get Bart back to normality, Barry raises Nora to S.T.A.R. Labs and facilitates them take down Godspeed. She says the only way to beat him is to have as much acceleration as possible and then continues to boost everyone’s power level including Bart’s and Iris ‘. Remember when she temporarily became the speedster of City center in The Flash, season 4, episode 16? Say hello to the same costume!

In other information, Joe and Kramer are stuck on a flyover with other people trying to leave Central City as an infantry of Godspeeds fight each other. One of them grabs Joe by the collar and is about to kill him when Kramer extends like a speedster to save his life. So Kramer is actually a … speedster? Yes and no, as she introduces it. She’s a meta which are capable of simulated abilities around her, so she was able to become a speedster like the Godspeeds on the flyover. She’s a meta when she need now, how cool is that?

Team Flash is now fighting against another infantry of Godspeeds but this time they are all speedsters, except Mechavibe, Allegra, and Frost, of course. And Caitlin and Chester, who are at the Lab.

They succeed in defeating the army but it makes them exclusively a few seconds to recharge via Nora, the Speed Force. She knew this would happen but still pushed through until The Flash invites her to leave the scene. The rest of them are able to handle the army with Allegra’s improve but they know it’s only a short period of epoch until they return. So Barry asks Nora to send out a homing signal to Thawne for help, and guess what? He actually comes! As selfish as he’s always been, he does come to help.

So…this Star Wars-themed fight sequence was pretty legit. There was no context behind this idea but if you are photo-sensitive, forestalled watching this for a few minutes.

Together, they ultimately hit Godspeed but the Reverse Flash attacks Barry. Why wouldn’t he? To his surprise, Barry became faster than he imagined. He warns him and runs away, which might bring in the possibility of another Thawne story arch. But for now he’s gone. And August has been sent to Iron Heights.
