Earth-2 villain Rupture has a bone to pick with Cisco
The Flash is all-new tonight with episode 2×20, “Rupture.” Most of us will recall from the promo trailer that this is the episode where Dr. Wells will attempt to recreate the particle accelerator explosion and give Barry his powers back.
But there’s another major plot taking place in tonight’s episode, and it’s the reason the episode is titled “Rupture.” We’re going to see Zoom make good on his promise to Caitlin and return to Earth-1, but with a group of Earth-2 meta-humans in tow. One in particular is Rupture, the brother of Cisco’s Earth-2 doppelganger, Reverb. It seems Rupture (the Earth-2 equivalent of Cisco’s brother, Dante) is hell-bent on revenge for the death of his brother and is coming after Cisco.
The CW has released a new preview comic for tonight’s episode, and it features the scene when Cisco first encounters Rupture:
Here’s the full synopsis for “Rupture”:
DC COMICS’ CHARACTER RUPTURE COMES TO CENTRAL CITY WITH ZOOM – Zoom (guest star Teddy Sears) arrives back on Earth-1 intent on taking over Central City. Barry (Grant Gustin) and Wells (Tom Cavanagh) come up with a plan to stop Zoom once and for all but it’s extremely dangerous. Unsure if he should take the risk, Barry reaches out to both fathers for advice. Henry (guest star John Wesley Shipps) is adamantly opposed to Barry risking his life again but Joe (Jesse L. Martin) thinks he can handle it which puts the two men at odds with each other. Meanwhile, Cisco (Carlos Valdes) is shocked when he vibes the Earth-2 villain Rupture, who happens to be his brother Dante’s (guest star Nicholas Gonzalez) doppelganger. Rupture came to this Earth seeking justice for Reverb’s death. Iris (Candice Patton) decides she’s finally ready to open up to Barry about her feelings for him. Armen V. Kevorkian directed the episode written by Kai Yu Wu & Lauren Certo.
The Flash airs tonight at 8/7c on The CW. We’ll have full coverage — including preview clips — later today, followed by live-tweeting of the episode and a full episode recap tomorrow morning.
