The Flash (Barry Allen) goes up against Farooq
aka Blackout, a metahuman who can harness
electricity. During their battle, Farooq zaps
The Flash and siphons all his electricity,
leaving The Flash without his speed. Dr.
Wells, Caitlin, and Cisco work to reverse the
effects on Barry, but their efforts are
disrupted when Farooq comes banging on
S.T.A.R. Labs doors in search of Wells, who he
blames for his accident. Without Barry's
powers to protect them, the group must figure
out a way to save themselves from the
metahuman. Meanwhile, Tockman manages a coup
inside the Central City police department and
takes several people hostage, including Joe
and Iris. While Iris is sure The Flash will
save them, Eddie has a trick up his sleeve
