In a new promo for tonight's episode, Cisco challenges Gypsy (Jessica Camacho) to a duel to the death. While he talks tough, as soon as his foe (who appears to have similar powers) departs back to Earth-19, Cisco has a moment of clarity where he realizes he may be out of his league.

There also appeared to be a slight romantic tension between Vibe and Gypsy, though it may not matter since Cisco has stepped in save H.R from a potentially deadly fate according to the official 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. Harry Jierjian directed the episode with story by Benjamin Raab and Deric A. Hughes and teleplay by Zack Stentz (FLA311). Original airdate 1/31/2017.
