Hiding secrets is certainly an issue and can cause more damage when revealed. In “The Flash” Season 1, Episode 18 it seems like one person is lying to another. Read below for the full recap.
Since Barry learned that Wells is the Reverse Flash he has been trying to stay away from him as much as possible and work with Joe and Eddie instead. Aside from that, he’s hiding what he knows about Wells from Cisco and Caitlin because Joe advised him not to since they don’t know where their loyalties lie.
However, before they dive deeper into the Wells issue, a bee problem occurred. A professor at Hudson University was killed by bees so Barry had no choice but to work with the people at S.T.A.R Labs to catch the killer. Ray and Felicity were also there to help as they were in Central City to ask the lab to help them with Ray’s suit.
Felicity could already feel the tension in the lab but she couldn’t tell what it is. On the other hand, Eddie hates the fact that he’s keeping something from Iris and Iris knows Eddie is hiding something from him, which has been causing them to fight a lot. Eddie tried to talk to Barry to tell him that Iris should know but still, Joe and Barry were against the idea.
Another bee attack occurred but Barry was too late but one bee managed to stung Barry and he got sent into cardiac arrest but luckily his suit has a built-in defibrillator. After that incident he went out to dinner with Felicity, Ray, Iris and Eddie. Since he’s hiding the whole Wells thing from the people he was out with he had a panic attack and had to excuse himself. Felicity followed him and that’s when he told Felicity about Wells. Also, Eddie and Iris fought because she knows that she’s hiding something from her and then they found out that the bee that stung Barry was still in his suit and is now in the S.T.A.R Labs, watching their every move.
It turns out that those are robotic bees made by Brie and Barry caught the bee and they found out that the bee has a camera, too which meant that Brie now knows that Barry is The Flash. Felicity found out that the bees were original developed by Mercury Labs so she, Well,s Barry and Joe set off to Mercury Labs to talk to Dr. Tina McGee. She was able to tell them about Brie whom she fired when she found out that Brie was weaponizing the bees. Again, they offered her protection but Tina turned them down again.
Brie then attacked Tina with her bees so the team decided to send Flash to Brie wearing Ray’s suit but they were surprised that there were more bees waiting for Barry. Luckily, Felicity managed to disable the bees and Barry was able to catch Brie. One bee got to Ray but before it could stung Ray Cisco jumped in front of it, saving Ray’s life then Barry sped down there and saved Cisco’s life.
Later on, Tina went to Barry to apologize for turning down their help and Barry asked what happened between her and Wells. Tina said that Wells has become a different man. Iris went to Eddie and told him that if he doesn’t tell her the truth they’re over.
Meanwhile, before leaving Felicity talked some sense into Barry when she made him realize that Cisco and Caitlin are good people and won’t betray them. That sold Barry out so he finally told Caitlin and Cisco the truth. He showed them evidence but Caitlin can’t still believe it while Cisco does as he has been having dreams even when he’s awake about Wells being Reverse Flash.
