The Flash: The Thinker Finds Himself a Dangerous New Host

SPOILER WARNING: This article contains major spoilers for “True Colors,” the latest episode of The Flash.

The Thinker just found himself a new host in Becky "Hazard" Sharpe. In "True Colors," the latest episode of The Flash, DeVoe turned up just as Barry broke the bus metas out of Iron Heights' metahuman wing. When he arrived, the Thinker used his chair to steal the metahumans' abilities -- and Becky's body.

Though Barry was successful in breaking the metas out of prison, Warden Wolfe and Amunet Black were there waiting for them when they escaped. Wolfe used his knowledge of Barry's secret identity as the Flash to turn the others against him -- all of them but Becky, that is. Becky used her good luck powers to save Barry, only for the Thinker to show up in his floating chair.

Unfortunately for the metahumans, the chair also neutralized their powers. While they were defenseless, the chair latched onto each character, duplicating their powers. The Thinker also transferred his consciousness into Becky's body in the process. With Becky's body and the others' powers, the Thinker has become something of a mega metahuman, with an array of powers from technokinesis to object manipulation to telepathy.

As such, the Thinker's plans for the bus metas has been revealed. It turns out that he created them in order to steal their powers. At the end of the episode, the Mechanic revealed that they initially planned to wait until all of the bus metas got arrested, so that they could collect their powers en masse. However, seeing as Wolfe planned to sell them to Amunet, Thinker had to adjust his plans and steal their powers just a bit earlier, but he began to lose his wife's faith in the process.

Airing Tuesdays at 8 pm ET/PT on The CW, The Flash stars Grant Gustin as Barry Allen, Carlos Valdes as Cisco Ramon, Danielle Panabaker as Caitlin Snow, Candice Patton as Iris West, Jesse L. Martin as Joe West, with guest appearances from Keiynan Lonsdale as Wally West and Hartley Sawyer as the Elongated Man.
