The Flash Season 4 Episode 13 Recap: The Great Escape

by at . Comments

Amunet continued to cause some trouble on The Flash Season 4 Episode 13 as she made her decision about Barry and the other metahumans holed up inside Iron Heights. 

When the episode got underway, Cecile still had mind-reading abilities as a result of recent events and heard all about the warden's plan to get rid of the metahumans and make a quick buck.

Thanks to Cisco, Ralph learned that he was able to shape-shift into anybody, but involved a whole lot of concentration. This gave Team Flash the leverage they needed to try and get something done about Barry. 

Ralph tried to bring the deal between the warden and Amunet to a grinding halt, but things took a wild turn, and his likeness to the warden started to waver. 

His failure only served to make Ralph question everything, and a chat with a former friend made him wonder whether leaving his life of crime behind was really the best foot forward. 

Concerned Barry Allen

Back inside the prison, Barry managed to escape from his cell after things got a little too convenient for him. The warden then dished to the others that Barry is the Flash. 

While a debate ensued about who could really be trusted, DeVoe appeared and tried to take down everyone. However, he managed to take on the form of someone Barry grew close to. 

Poor Becky.

Cisco and Killer Frost made their way to the scene of the crime and attempted to get Barry out of jail once and for all, but the fastest man alive was not ready to leave the life behind bars. 

The Flash is in Trouble!

All was right, however, because Cecile went to the courthouse to appeal the ruling and she was greeted by none other than DeVoe. In reality, Ralph had taken on the appearance of the villain. 

The judge is blindsided, but there's nothing else that can be done, and Barry is officially let out of his jail cell, but will it be for good?

Marlize was not impressed with the way things were going, and DeVoe took notice of it. He didn't want anyone to ruin their plans, so he slipped some drugs into her drink. 

Yes, The Flash is trying to be a daytime soap opera, and we're all for it. If it ups the ante, then who are we to judge? 

Danielle Panabaker for The CW

While Team Flash celebrated their small victory, Barry got thinking about what was going to come next from the villain because it all seemed a little too easy. 

The episode closed with Barry wondering if The Thinker is going to do something to Ralph. Worse than that, Ralph could have already been compromised. 

And so, the big win became a great paranoia for some of the characters.
