Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Laurel Lance (credit only)


A seemingly impossible robbery at Queen Consolidated's Applied Sciences Division brings Central City police scientist Barry Allen to town. Citing a similar case back home, Barry offers to help Oliver and team with the investigation. Oliver senses there is more to Barry than meets the eye, but he's distracted by the similarities between this current case and something that happened on the island. Meanwhile, Felicity takes a liking to Barry, which doesn't go unnoticed by Oliver. Sin asks Roy for help when a friend of hers goes missing. Roy is surprised when Thea not only encourages him to help, but joins the search. Unfortunately, Sin's friend is connected to Brother Bloo, and their search ultimately gets one of them seriously injured. Written by Salman Ali

Did You Know?


Just before the 6 minute mark, Barry Allen describes the stolen industrial centrifuge as "a Kord Enterprises 2BX-900". In the DC-verse Kord Enterprises is run by Ted Kord, AKA The Blue Beetle. See more »


(at around 32 mins) The chemical formula of Ketamine shown here is wrong as well its origins, mentioned by Felicity Smoak. See more »


Barry Allen: So you've seen him, right? The vigilante? I read that he saved you. What was he like?
Felicity Smoak: Green.
Barry Allen: Green. That's interesting, right? I mean, why green? Black would be better for stealth, and urban camouflage. Me, personally, I think that he trained in some sort of forest or jungle environment, and the green is a nod to that.
Felicity Smoak: I don't give the vigilante much thought.

ARrgggg Why!!?!?!!
13 December 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The stupidity level in this episode just jumped up 10 fold with the new guy...

PLEASEEEEE!!! One really bad, hacker chick is bad enough, but now a f8ggy pussy sh!t hacker boi whom blames his faults on other things / people...

Thought the stupidity in this TV series was bearable because of the underline plot... apparently i was wrong.

don't even get me started about the "centrifuge." Come on, you guys just had to make an episode all about find a CENTRIFUGE! A Low-Tech Piece Of Crap that just SPINS really fast. D:::: OMGAWD!!! I R Ub3r Scientist... so i am too smart to go out and build my own centrifuge because i can't afford to buy one for $100... instead i'm going to take this giant ass one that is being guarded for some odd reason...

Just because the world's population has become retarded, doesn't mean that there shouldn't be any TV shows for those who have a REMOTE spec of intelligence.
