Welcome back! This week it’s bachelorette party time for Iris and the girls but things look like they may take a very chilly turn. As always, spoilers from this point on.

The episode starts with Barry, Cisco, Harry and new team member Ralph Dibny working out who DeVoe is. Well, Ralph is mostly playing with his powers. Anyway. Felicity from Arrow shows up because it’s time for Iris’ bachelorette party.

Upstairs at the lab, Caitlin has booked a plane ticket out of town and tries to tell Iris and Felicity that she’s just not up to going out. Iris manages to convince her to come out.

Meanwhile at Joe’s house, Cecile is sharing her ultrasound photos with her daughter Joanie when Barry, Cisco, and Harry show up for Barry’s bachelor party. The ladies leave and Cisco sets up a screen for some home videos. This is definitely not a wild party, but then Ralph crashes things and ends up dragging the guys out with him for something a bit more fun.

The ladies are also trying to have a low key night, though Caitlin is drinking a bit more than normal and suddenly, that creepy guy from the bar she worked at shows up. He demands she come with him, but Caitlin refuses. That prompts him to take out his eye to reveal a snake-like appendage in the socket and all hell breaks loose with the ladies fighting him and Killer Frost coming back. Probably good considering Frost chucks the guy out a window.

As for the guys? Ralph has taken them to a strip club. As they all get drinks, Cisco gives Barry a special drink he’s made for him so he, too, can get drunk. Oh and the bouncer takes the guys’ phones which means Iris can’t call him for help in regards to the snake eye guy and Frost.

Back at STAR, Frost explains that Caitlin was planning to leave because of the trouble she’s in while at the club a very, very drunk Barry is telling everyone he’s the Flash. Joe gets him wrangled back to the table when a new dancer takes the stage who turns out to be Cecile’s daughter. Yikes!

Frost goes after snake eye guy and heads into a club to confront her old boss, Amunet who might just be the best villain ever. The other girls have followed her and Iris specificallyf follows her to where Amunet has a new meta chained up. Amunet calls him The Weeper and his tears? They’re drugs. Amunet wants Frost to come back and be her bodyguard. That doesn’t go well but Iris steps in and stops the two from a meta fight to the death.

At STAR, Frost explains that Caitlin agreed to work with Amunet in exchange for tech that would help Caitlin manage the Frost situation. Iris confers with the other ladies and the decide the need to save Weeper and Iris is able to persuade Frost into going back to Caitlin instead of fleeing Earth-1.

At the strip club, Joe talks with Joanie about the stripping thing. Turns out Joanie is using the job as research for a book. Barry is crazy drunk and it’s funny. A dancer accuses Ralph of stealing money from her. A fight breaks out that results in the guys all being arrested.

Frost meets up with Amunet in an alley. They fight and it looks like Amunet is going to kill her but the police show up. This allows Frost, who is Caitlin again, to escape while Amunet uses her metal powers to kill the two cops. Amunet turns around to find Caitlin gon.

At STAR Iris and Caitlin bond a bit, in jail Joe reveals how scared he is to have another child and Barry gives him a pep talk. The ladies then figure out how to track Amunet and decide to go deal with her themselves so they head to an industrial park but are stopped by the henchmen of a mobster Amunet is trying to sell Weeper to. Things look bad, but Caitlin shows up and quickly turns to Killer Frost, working with Iris and Felicity (and Cecile, who is in the van) to stop Amunet by taking away her metal. Frost is about to kill the disarmed Amunet, but Iris stops her by telling her she gets to choose who she wants to be.

Harry gets the guys out of jail and everyone reconvenes at STAR. Killer Frost is also there and explains to the team what she’s been dealing with. Back at Joe’s Joanie tells him she’s going to open up to her mom. Cecile admits to Joe she’s scared to be a parent again, too.

Iris asks Caitlin to be her Maid of Honor as the pair leaves STAR. Caitlin accepts and they hug. And as for Weeper? Well, he fled after the ladies saved him but he didn’t get too far. The Thinker shows up to collect him.

Next week? Ralph Dibny gets his own suit! See you then.
