At the end of last week’s episode of the CW‘s The Flash “Memorabilia,” Barry and Cisco decided to use Cicada as the guinea pig test subject for Cisco’s breakthrough in a meta cure–which is great!
Now comes the problem: getting someone like Cicada to play along–and somehow we don’t think that’s going to happen with just a polite ask and something from Edible Arrangements. As we can see from the following preview for this week’s episode “Goldfaced,” it’s going to require Barry and Ralph “breaking bad” undercover to secure a weapon that would help their “debate” with Cicada, a name that Nora might have been better off forgetting this episode…for her own good:
THE FLASH s05e13 “Goldfaced”: BARRY AND IRIS EACH TAKE DANGEROUS STEPS TO STOP CICADA — Barry (Grant Gustin) and Ralph (Hartley Sawyer) must go undercover as criminals in an illegal black market to purchase a device that could help them stop Cicada (Chris Klein). Once inside, Barry and Ralph find their morality tested as they slip deeper into the criminal world, eventually having to choose between committing a crime, or losing the means to defeat one of their greatest foes. Meanwhile, Iris (Candice Patton) investigates a lead on Cicada’s whereabouts and ends up in a dangerous situation. Alexandra LaRoche directed the episode written by Jonathan Butler & Gabriel Garza
THE FLASH stars Grant Gustin as Barry Allen/The Flash, Candice Patton as Iris West-Allen, Danielle Panabaker as Caitlin Snow/Killer Frost, Carlos Valdes as Cisco Ramon/Vibe, Hartley Sawyer as Ralph Dibny/Elongated Man, Danielle Nicolet as Cecile Horton, Jessica Parker Kennedy as Nora West-Allen/XS, Chris Klein as Orlyn Dwyer/Cicada, with Tom Cavanagh as Harrison Wells and Jesse L.

If a “breaking bad” Barry and Ralph aren’t enough to get you psyched, take a look at some preview images as the CW’s The Flash returns on Tuesday at 8 p.m. ET.
