So Cisco's got some prototypes of a metahuman cure that could end up being the answer to so many problems – and absolutely not abused in any way, shape, or form… right? Then Caitlin and Ralph discover that said prototypes have been nabbed and are now in the hands of someone who had a more widespread – and permanent – "cure" for the metahuman "problem": Cicada II (…Electric Boogaloo).


The Flash season 5, episode 21 "The Girl With The Red Lightning": CICADA II MAKES HER MOVE — Team Flash is on high alert after Cicada II (guest star Sarah Carter) threatens to unleash a dangerous virus that would put all meta-humans at risk.
