Barry Finds Harrison Wells' Lair On 'The Flash' & Gets A Glimpse Into His Supposed Future
Well, it looks like the cat is officially out of the bag now that Barry found Harrison Wells' lair on The Flash , including the Reverse-Flash suit, Gideon, and all of the mysterious bumps on the walls. I honestly didn't think that our favorite trio would find out this much about Harrison so soon, but at the end of Tuesday's episode we saw Barry, Caitlin, and Cisco gaining access through the secret wall and heading straight in. To some degree, this is a huge relief, because Caitlin has been really reluctant to believe Barry and Cisco about their Harrison suspicions. She said multiple times since they brought it up that she needs "proof," and hopefully this is more than enough of it.
The real question now is what Barry is going to do with this new knowledge. Among the things he saw was the newspaper that Gideon displays showing the supposed date of his future disappearance on April 25, 2025 (almost exactly 10 years from this episode's air date). Just knowing that this is a possibility is more than enough to screw up the time stream, so I'm guessing the headlines reflected on that paper are going to be changing very soon. Barry also saw the Reverse-Flash suit, but at this point, none of them know that Harrison can secretly walk. Will they assume that Harrison also has an accomplice?
Here's hoping they figure it all out soon, because I have some major suspicions about this. Barry got into that wall with absurd ease, and Harrison Wells is an extremely careful and clever man. If Barry, Cisco, and Caitlin got access to that room, it's because he wanted them to be in there and he wanted them to find him out. But why? Looks like The Flash has yet another plot twist coming at us, and judging by the genuine madman we have seen Harrison become, I'm a little scared to find out what that will be.
