In “Rupture,” tonight’s episode of “The Flash,” Barry will do whatever it takes to get his powers back — even if that means re-creating the events of the particle accelerator explosion, like Harrison Wells suggested. According to Carlos Valdes, who plays Cisco Ramon on the show, this new particle accelerator event is only the beginning.
“This next episode creates an event,” Valdes revealed to MTV News. “The re-creation of the particle accelerator launches something. It launches something that’s very important, and it basically takes us in a new direction. It opens up a new possibility, and that new road leads us to the places we ultimately end up depending on in the fight against Zoom. So that’s why these next two episodes especially are so important. We start uncovering possibilities that allow us to develop a plan to stop Zoom. It really does become a true team effort.”
What’s more, he’s excited for Cisco to take a more proactive role in stopping Zoom. “That’s been one of the most exciting things about Season 2 in general,” he shared. “I’ve been able to play Cisco’s developing maturity, from his reluctance to accept these powers, which has always been an issue with him because of the part Harrison Wells played in giving him these powers — there’s always going to be a seductive taste to the dark side — but overtime, he’s learned to control them. Fans can definitely expect Cisco to step up considerably in these next few episodes. His powers are really going to prove instrumental in helping to stop Zoom.”
As to Cisco’s thoughts on Wells’ plan, Valdes said, “Even though Cisco has the scientific knowledge to be able to see this as a pretty legitimate plan, he still thinks it’s ridiculous. He’s sort of a window for the audience in that way. He thinks it’s absolutely insane! But even though it’s ridiculous, it’s literally the only plan that the team has. They’ve been backed into a corner, and the only way that they can even get Caitlin back, or stop Zoom, is to get Barry’s speed back. So there’s literally no other option. It’s less of a matter of rejecting the insanity of this plan and more a matter of accepting the reality — and Barry is pivotal to that. It becomes his decision to make.”
