The Flash's newest episode took things to a whole other level, and that includes giving one unexpected character a set of powers.
Spoilers for tonight's episode of The Flash, "Honey, I Shrunk Team Flash", below!
Tonight's episode opened with Joe West (Jesse L. Martin) and Cecile Horton (Danielle Nicolet) getting ready for work. After Cecile got upset about Joe's comments toward her, she realized that they weren't comments at all -- she was able to read his mind.
Cecile and Joe then went to STAR Labs, where tests determined that Cecile now had telepathic abilities. As Caitlin Snow/Killer Frost (Danielle Panabaker) explained, Cecile probably had latent dark matter hiding in her body since the first particle accelerator explosion, which her pregnancy has now sort of activated. According to Caitlin, these powers will probably go away once Cecile actually gives birth.
This certainly throws a wrench in Cecile's pregnancy, something that will already complicate things amongst Team Flash.
"He's really happy to be having a baby with Cecile, but both of them are scared to death about being older and dealing with a little baby," Jesse L. Martin, who plays Joe West, told reporters late last year. "We both have full-time careers and of course I'm fighting crime with Team Flash so baby's going to put a monkey wrench in the program but I guess it's going to be a good monkey wrench. And who knows what kind of baby is going to show up in Central City, right?"
"I think she's super excited and happy for Joe," Candice Patton, who plays Iris West, added. "It's been a long time coming for him to have a relationship on the show. They're definitely older and going to have a newborn and that's a weird, strange thing. We'll delve into more of that as the season goes on. I think Iris is really excited to be a big sister. Maybe it will inspire her to want to have children sooner rather than later too."
The Flash airs Tuesdays at 8/7c on The CW.
