So Tony Curran's Despero has led an alien invasion to Earth to prevent Barry (Grant Gustin) from destroying it in 2031. Must be a case of mistaken identity, right? Nope, at least not according to Cecile (Danielle Nicolet). Thankfully, Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh) was there to help Barry buy some time and offer some quality advice (and a heartbreaking update about his old teammates). Now, Barry needs to convince Despero that he would never bring about the end of the world. But Despero's only giving Barry seven days to do it, and those seven days are going to be brutal for Barry. This week, some quality one-on-one time with Cress Williams' Jefferson Pierce aka Black Lightning might just be the very thing he needs as we take a look at The CW's The Flash.
