Vibe to the rescue! In new photos from "Dead or Alive," the next episode of "The Flash," Cisco Ramon suits up in order to fight for Harrison Wells. As it turns out, inter-dimensional travel is illegal on Earth-19, so HR is in big trouble with his home world. However, Cisco will step up to the plate to help his friend in need. A handful of new photos show Cisco in his Vibe costume as he prepares to face off against a bounty hunter.
"Dead or Alive" will also introduce Gypsy, who has vibe powers like Cisco. Created by Gerry Conway and Chuck Patton, Gypsy, aka Cindy Reynolds, was introduced in 1984’s “Justice League of America Annual” #2, the same issue in which Vibe debuted. In the comics, she had the ability to cast illusions, but it looks as though she'll have the same powers as Cisco in the show.
"He never realized the extent of his powers, and because of seeing Gypsy, he’s going to become more and more in tune with his powers and what he can do, whether it’s crossing dimensions or opening breaches much faster and quicker," executive producer Aaron Helbing teased in an interview last week. "He’s going to be building confidence, and that’ll definitely play into the rest of the season of helping Barry and the team stop Savitar from killing Iris.”
The photos show Gypsy interacting with most of Team Flash, not just Cisco and HR. It looks like she'll also be able to breach the security of STAR Labs, as she appears to be in their training facility in several pictures.
According to the official episode synopsis,
DC COMICS’ GYPSY ARRIVES ON EARTH-1 – H.R.’s (Tom Cavanagh) past catches up with him when a bounty hunter with vibe powers named Gypsy (guest star Jessica Camacho) arrives in Central City to bring him back to Earth-19 to stand trial for his crime. It turns out inter-dimensional travel is illegal on their Earth. H.R. surrenders but when Barry (Grant Gustin) and Cisco (Carlos Valdes) find out that H.R.’s only hope would be to challenge Gypsy to a fight to the death, they intercede and Cisco offers to fight Gypsy instead.
Airing Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW, “The Flash” stars Grant Gustin, Candice Patton, Danielle Panabaker, Carlos Valdes, Tom Cavanagh, Jesse L. Martin and Keiynan Lonsdale. “The Flash” returns on January 24.
