Executive Producer Aaron Helbing previews this Tuesday's "Attack on Gorilla City" episode, in this latest featurette for The Flash.
Before Helbing describes what's to come, an informative clip is shown of Jesse Quick explaining what Gorilla City is to Joe West. "There are sentient, highly-intelligent, evolved gorillas in Earth-2," she says to him, "and they all live in a city deep in the heart of Africa."
Helbing then explains, "Her father, Harry Wells, went to Gorilla City and is missing in action. And so she's hoping that the team can come, with her, and help save her father. Barry and Caitlin and Cisco and Julian go into Earth-2. While they're going through the forest, Grodd appears and captures them. So now they're stuck in these Gorilla City cells, unable to escape. Grodd's dampening their powers."
We then see a clip of Grodd using Harry Wells's body to speak to Team Flash, informing them that they will be "sent to the arena and executed." Noice!
When Jesse Quick (guest star Violett Beane) informs the team that her father (Tom Cavanagh) has been abducted, Barry (Grant Gustin), Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker), Cisco (Carlos Valdes) and Julian (Tom Felton) voyage to Earth-2 on a rescue mission to save Harry from Gorilla City. As they trek through the forest, Barry and the team are immediately captured and brought to Grodd (voiced by David Sobolov).
Grodd tells them he needs their help to stop Solovar (voiced by Keith David), the leader of Gorilla City, as Solovar wants to invade Earth-1. Meanwhile, back on Earth-1, Jesse and Kid Flash (Keiynan Lonsdale) hit the streets to stop a metahuman that can control gravity, with H.R. and Joe (Jesse L. Martin) guiding them from S.T.A.R. Labs.
Dermott Downs directed the episode with story by Andrew Kresiberg and teleplay by Aaron Helbing & David Kob.
The Flash airs Tuesday nights at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
