The CW has released the official synopsis for “Attack on Gorilla City,” February 21’s episode of The Flash.
You can check it out below.
When Jesse Quick (guest star Violett Beane) informs the team that her father (Tom Cavanagh) has been abducted, Barry (Grant Gustin), Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker), Cisco (Carlos Valdes) and Julian (Tom Felton) voyage to Earth-2 on a rescue mission to save Harry from Gorilla City. As they trek through the forest, Barry and the team are immediately captured and brought to Grodd (voiced by David Sobolov).
Grodd tells them he needs their help to stop Solovar (voiced by Keith David), the leader of Gorilla City, as Solovar wants to invade Earth-1. Meanwhile, back on Earth-1, Jesse and Kid Flash (Keiynan Lonsdale) hit the streets to stop a metahuman that can control gravity, with H.R. and Joe (Jesse L. Martin) guiding them from S.T.A.R. Labs.
Dermott Downs directed the episode with story by Andrew Kresiberg and teleplay by Aaron Helbing & David Kob.
Each season so far, The Flash has had at least one episode dealing with Gorilla Grodd, a superintelligent gorilla who battles The Flash in the comics.
Originally a gorilla being kept in STAR Labs for study, Grodd was hit with dark matter during the particle accelerator explosion and became a brutal killer, battling it out with The Flash and becoming obsessed with Caitlin Snow.
After their second major battle last season, The Earth-2 version of Harrison Wells helped The Flash banish Grodd to Gorilla City on Earth-2…which apparently wasn’t such a great plan.
