The Flash Season 7 Episode 4 Recap

In the fourth episode of ‘The Flash’ season 7, titled ‘Central City Strong’, Team Flash, with help from volunteers, tries to rebuild the city after the destruction caused by Mirror Mistress’s children. However, on a personal level, Iris and Barry are both struggling to cope with the experiences of the past months while Iris was stuck in the mirrorverse.

Elsewhere, we see Abra Kadabra killing a worker at a construction site with a card trick. He then proceeds to reduce a shed to a tiny object and takes it with him. It is clear that Abra Kadabra is more powerful than before as the magician from the 64th century has some slick new tricks up his sleeve. Cisco and Barry soon figure out that Abra Kadabra is behind the murder and try to trace him.

Upon receiving the notification of the next temporal anomaly caused by Abra Kadabra, Barry and Cisco arrive at his location and confront him. In an ironic moment, Abra Kadabra dubs Cisco’s new avatar as “Mecha Vibe.” He then namedrops the Chronarch, rulers of the 64th century. It is interesting to note that Abra Kadabra has a history of foreshadowing future events, so it is likely the Chronarch will appear on the show eventually. After a brief fight, Abra Kadabra is defeated by The Flash, thanks to Frost’s assistance, and ARGUS apprehends him. It turns out to be all part of Abra Kadabra’s plan, and he escapes from the prison after getting his hands on the tech he required.

Cisco identifies the object Frost swiped from the villain as a Martian Memory Restoration Ring that restores pre-crisis memories. The team learns that Abra Kadabra plans to destroy Central City with an atomic bomb he has built. Barry blames himself for not seeing through the trick and confesses his guilt over not realizing Mirror Iris wasn’t his Iris. Iris comforts him by saying the only way to move forward is to face his trauma. Abra Kadabra wants to destroy Central City as revenge for his family.

Barry appeals to Abra Kadabra to deal with trauma and loss by facing it and tells him about losing his dear friend, Oliver, during the crisis. The magician has a change of heart and powers down the bomb. Just then, an earthquake rocks the Central City, and Cisco alerts Barry that the earthquake’s source is swiftly approaching them. It turns out to be a towering man who knocks out Barry and kills Abra Kadabra with his hulking power before leaving. The sudden appearance of the new threat leaves Team Flash puzzled.

In the end, Barry’s appeal to Abra Kadabra makes Iris realize she must face her trauma as well and joins a support group of mirrorverse survivors. The biggest development is saved for the last. The closing moments reveal that Caitlin and Frost are now two completely separate individuals, or are they? We’ll just have to wait to find out.
