The Flash: [SPOILER] Uncovers a Secret Identity

SPOILER WARNING: This article contains major spoilers for “Honey, I Shrunk Team Flash,” the latest episode of The Flash.

Barry Allen is out of the frying pan and into the fire. In “Honey, I Shrunk Team Flash,” the latest episode of The Flash, Iron Heights’ Warden Gregory Wolfe discovered that his latest inmate is actually the Flash. Once he made that discovery, he drugged Barry to neutralize his powers, threw him in a cell in Iron Heights’ metahuman wing and called up his good friend Amunet Black.

Wolfe’s moment of discovery came at the end of the episode, after Barry granted Big Sir’s greatest wish and spirited him out of prison. Though Barry waited for the oscillating camera to be pointed in another direction, he didn’t realize Wolfe had installed a hidden camera focused only on his cell. So, when Barry used his powers to free Big Sir, Wolfe got it all on film.

At first, Wolfe interrogated Barry in order to find out where Big Sir went. Barry feigned ignorance, but his bravado began to fall away once Wolfe revealed his secret weapon. “Did you know the oscillating cameras aren’t the only ones in this wing?” he asked, at which Barry glanced nervously along the wall. “Once you started stroking Inmate Ratchett’s hopes of freedom, I had a camera installed right by your cell, and — when I checked that camera — I learned who you truly are.”

Barry tried to deny Wolfe’s accusation, only for the warden to produce photographic evidence. “Let me be specific: you’re the Flash,” Wolfe said. “There’s no use denying it or trying to run. You’re clearly already feeling the effects of the drug cocktail I put in that snack you so seem to enjoy.”

As Barry began to sway on his feet, he asked Wolfe why he would do this. Wolfe didn’t answer; he just watched Barry crumple to the ground. “I did warn you,” he admitted. “Everyone in here is a monster.”

After Barry blacked out, Wolfe had him thrown in the metahuman wing, which prevents its inmates from accessing their powers using the same technology Cisco developed for STAR Labs’ pipeline. Standing outside of Barry’s new cell, Wolfe made a call on his cell phone. “You said to call you when I was ready to do business,” he said by way of greeting.

The episode then revealed Amunet Black on the other line. “Do you have another fish to sell me?” she asked, indicating that this isn’t the first time they worked together.

“I do,” he replied. “And it’s a big one.”

Amunet, of course, is Killer Frost’s former boss. Though a metahuman herself, Amunet collects and sells other metahumans on the black market. Team Flash interrupted one of her deals in an earlier episode, only for her to slip away in the end. This means that she will very likely try to do the same with Barry; whether or not she will discover his true identity is yet to be seen.

Airing Tuesdays at 8 pm ET/PT on The CW, The Flash stars Grant Gustin as Barry Allen, Carlos Valdes as Cisco Ramon, Danielle Panabaker as Caitlin Snow, Candice Patton as Iris West, Jesse L. Martin as Joe West, with guest appearances from Keiynan Lonsdale as Wally West and Hartley Sawyer as the Elongated Man.
