Flash Season 4: Where Are All The New Metas Coming From?

On Tonight's episode of The Flash, when the team meets a new meta named Hazard (Sugar Lyn Beard), the discussion leads to the existence of luck and just where the new metas are coming from. Here we see Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) conferring with Cisco Ramon (Carlos Valdes), Caitlin Snow (Danielle Panabaker), Harry Wells (Tom Cavanagh), Joe West (Jesse L. Martin) and Iris West (Candice Patton). He describes his encounter with the woman as being straight out of a cartoon, explaining that he slipped on a barrel of marbles. No word if they were ACME marbles.


This leads to a discussion of Quantum Entanglement and how luck doesn't exist. This of course means that Hazard aka Becky Sharpe is a meta, but has only lived in Central City for three years. She wasn't there for the particle accelerator explosion. But the sensors in the Flash suit picked up traces of Dark Matter, meaning that another Dark Matter event has happened and likely caused both Hazard and Kilg%re. What was the event? Where did it happen? And how many new metas are there? And there is the added question, does the Thinker wanted Hazard too? Is he going to try and collect all twelve in Iron Heights? Would his plan be different if the Metas were still kept in the S.T.A.R Labs pipeline instead?

The Flash airs Tuesdays at 9 PM on the CW.
