The Flash Season 3, Episode 14 Synopsis: “Attack On Central City”


This week on The Flash, Gorilla Grodd and his gorilla army attack Central City.

Last time on The Flash‘s “Attack on Gorilla City” episode, the team traveled to Earth-2 to free Harrison Wells from Gorilla Grodd. They soon discovered that a much more devious plan was at play.

More from TV

Jesse Quick alerted Team Flash of Harrison Well’s abduction by Gorilla Grodd. Soon, the team made a plan to find Wells and bring him home. It wasn’t long before Julian Albert got wind of the mission and wanted to tag along. All they needed to mention was that it involved a city full of gorillas and he was sold.

Shortly after stepping through the Vibe-created portal, the team was rendered unconscious by darts and brought to Gorilla City. There, they learned that the leader of the Gorillas, Solovar, wanted to attack Central City.

When Gorilla Grodd appeared, he made a deal with Barry: fight Solovar and instill Grodd as the new leader, and Grodd will vow not to attack Central City. When Barry does defeat Solovar in battle, he quickly learned that it was all a trick.

Solovar never wanted to attack Central City. Grodd’s plan was to use the fight between the Flash and Solovar as an example of how dangerous humans can be. This way, Grodd can rally all the gorillas and invade Earth-1. Grodd will force Cisco to open the portal for him.

With no way out, the team formed a daring plan to have Caitlin use her cold powers to make Barry seem like he died. Barry vibrated himself back to consciousness the second Grodd removed his lifeless body from the cage.

The team narrowly escaped Grodd and his gorillas, but the telepathic simian had a plan—he was going to use Gypsy to open a portal to Earth-1. This week, Grodd and his army will attack Central City, and another prophecy item from Iris’s future will be checked off. Here’s the official synopsis from The CW:

“Attack on Central City”

"THE EPIC CONCLUSION TO THE TWO-PART BATTLE WITH GRODD – When Grodd (voiced by David Sobolov) and his army of gorillas bring the battle to Earth-1, The Flash (Grant Gustin) and team must find a way to stop them before they destroy Central City. Gypsy (guest star Jessica Camacho) returns to join the fight. Meanwhile, Jesse Quick (guest star Violett Beane) decides she wants to stay with Wally (Keiynan Lonsdale) on Earth-1."
