Cisco’s “vibing” powers have proven extremely useful on The Flash, but there’s no arguing that he hasn’t quite gotten the hang of it yet. That will all change with the arrival of a new foe in a few short weeks.
Gypsy, a popular character in the DC canon, will soon be appearing on the show (played by actress Jessica Camacho), and her television incarnation will sport powers very similar to Cisco. As we’ve seen in set photos from upcoming episodes, Cisco will soon be sporting the full Vibe outfit from the comics, and it seems we have Gypsy to thank for that.
“We’re going to see Cisco really realize what he can do,” executive producer Aaron Helbing tells EW. “Gypsy is a very formidable adversary. He never realized the extent of his powers, and because of seeing Gypsy, he’s going to become more and more in tune with his powers and what he can do, whether it’s crossing dimensions or opening breaches much faster and quicker. He’s going to be building confidence, and that’ll definitely play into the rest of the season of helping Barry and the team stop Savitar from killing Iris.”
Team Flash 2.0
There have been previous hints from Helbing that suggest a possible romance between Gypsy and Vibe, so there could be more to this story than first appears.
At any rate, Team Flash is suddenly morphing into a whole team of actual metahumans. I’m willing to bet it will take the combined forces of Flash, Kid Flash, Jesse Quick, Vibe, Killer Frost, and maybe even Doctor Alchemy to take down Savitar once and for all.
The Flash returns from hiatus on Tuesday, January 24 at 8/7c on The CW.
