Ahead of tonight's episode of CW's the Flash—the first in a two-part series—a new clip shows the Scarlet Speedster and his allies trapped by Solovar and Grodd in the bowels of Gorilla City.
In the episode, Grodd lures Team Flash to Earth 2 by capturing their friend Harry Wells.
Wells was revealed to be bait, as Grodd wants the heroes to prevent Solovar's planned invasion of Earth-1.
Obviously, as evidenced by this clip, things don't turn out too well for the team.
Solovar has the Flash, Cisco, Caitlin, and Julian locked in cages. After laying down the law on Grodd, he turns his attention to the invaders of Gorilla City.
Barry pleads for their lives, promising never to return, but Solovar demonstrates his power by taking control of one of his allies and speaking through him.
Solovar promises a certain doom for the heroes, increasing the scope of Team Flash's goals beyond a simple rescue mission. Now, they have to escape with their lives.
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.
