It's been a while since there was even the thought of The Flash's Cisco Ramon having some kind of personal life -- but it seems to us that he really needs one right about now.
Still reeling from the death of Dante and the later revelation that it was somehow Barry's fault that his brother died, Cisco has been lost and vulnerable for a while now. He's finally starting to recover...
...and in comes Gypsy.
A character who teamed with Vibe, Vixen, and a handful of other heroes on the '80s' notorious "Justice League Detroit," Gypsy is expected to make her way to Central City soon...and earlier today we guessed that whether it's a standard romance or just a "very close super-friends" relationship, Gypsy will be the one to help him really power through the challenges ahead while shedding some of the baggage of the last few months.
It now looks like we're onto something, as TVLine teases, “Cisco will find in the 'badass' Gypsy 'a very strong adversary' as well as 'someone he can’t stop thinking about.'”
That comes out of an interview with showrunner Aaron Helbing.
In addition to their long-ago histories, Gypsy was an important player in Justice League of America's Vibe, the short-lived comic book series from writers Geoff Johns and Andrew Kreisberg, both of whom get producer credits on The Flash.

While up to this point in season 3, The Flash has dealt with the fallout of "Flashpoint," an alternate timeline he created at the end of season 2, that's taking a backseat in the second half of the season to Barry's attempts to prevent the speed god Savitar from killing Iris West -- something he saw when he accidentally traveled to the future. The second half of season 3 will also see another crossover with Supergirl - this one a musical crossover featuring the singing talents of stars Melissa Benoist and Grant Gustin, who both appeared on Glee before their superhero careers.
Supergirl airs Mondays at 8 p.m. ET/PT; The Flash on Tuesdays at the same time, followed by DC's Legends of Tomorrow at 9 p.m.; Arrow on Wednesdays at 8. New episodes return the last week in January.
