The last time we saw Grodd, Team Flash relocated the telepathic and hyper-intelligent gorilla to a jungle on Earth-2, where he could hang out with like-minded apes in Gorilla City. We'll get to explore Gorilla City for the first time when the next episode of The Flash airs Tuesday, February 21.
To setup the two-part event, Jesse Quick (Violett Beane) transported to Earth-1 in the closing moments of Tuesday's "Untouchable" episode. "Grodd. He's got my dad," she urgently told Wally. "And he has him in Gorilla City."
So, what happened to Earth-2 Harrison Wells? "Jesse's dad got a message from some of the sentient gorillas, who asked to meet him — as gorillas do — and you know Harry, he loves an adventure," Beane told TV Line. "So he mounted an expedition and took 10 people into the forest with him." When he goes missing during the expedition, she rushes back to Earth-1 to get help from her friends.
Barry, Wally, Caitlin, Cisco and Julian all travel to Earth-2 to help find Jesse's father. Once they get to Gorilla City, they will encounter warring ape factions. "It's going to be pretty massive," Beane shared. "There's a battle between Grodd and his own gorilla friends. There's a stampede, and there's a huge gorilla fight towards the end of the first episode."
Fans can also expect an awkward and funny moment when Jesse meets H.R., her father's Earth-19 doppelganger, and more flirting between her and Wally. "There's always that moment of, 'Are we still…?'" said the actress. "But ultimately they really missed each other a lot. There are some cute scenes."
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.
