What do you do when some of your team has been shrunk by a meta?

That was the thing much of the team questioned on The Flash Season 4 Episode 12 as Barry remained inside Iron Heights.

When the episode got underway, the mayor was proudly introducing the latest R&D facility that was secure against metas, because metas are all about destruction these days. 

In a hilarious turn of events, the facility disappeared, and the mayor could only whine about hating the city. 

While Joe and Cisco joined forces to find out what was really going on, they were asked by Barry to help him get Big Sir out of prison.

Wells felt like they needed to take it seriously because Barry has not asked for much since he was put in prison. 

The meta they were looking for looked similar to Big Sir all those years ago. It was a little too convenient to take seriously, but logic has never stopped The Flash before. 

When Ralph, Cisco, and Joe confront Rundin, he makes an exit into the alley below his apartment. That’s when he decided to shrink both Ralph and Cisco. 

Ralph thought he could use his powers to help him back to his normal size, but it resulted in him sitting in pain. Wells made a big blunder and actually almost killed the two of them in the quest to save them. 

The Flash is in Trouble!

While Barry tried to help Big Sir, the warden reiterated to him that a prisoner was once stabbed to death after unsuccessfully getting someone out. 

Rundin tried to shrink Wells, but Cisco and Ralph were inside his pocket and it allowed them to return to full size and fight another day. 

Rundin was not amused when he was arrested and refused to confess to the crime from all those years ago. 

This meant Big Sir was not getting out of prison, but there was a big twist in store. The warden had installed a security camera in Barry’s cell and had confirmation that he was The Flash. 

He hit up Amunet to let her know he had something great for her. Yeah, it looks like Barry is in the meta wing and he’s going to be in a lot of trouble if everyone fails to save him. 

Concerned Barry Allen

Elsewhere, Cecile was shocked that the dark matter in her brain interfered with her pregnancy in a big way. 

She could hear the thoughts of other people, and she did not like what she heard. 

Does this mean her child is going to have some sort of power? 

We’ll need to wait to find out!
