The Flash is coming off one of its best episodes of the season that saw the loss of a team member, technically two if you count the removal of Killer Frost from the equation for now as well.

There are still five episodes to go in the season, and now The CW has revealed an episode description for the third of those five episodes that included that is titled "Harry and the Harrisons."

Team Flash has been a step behind pretty much all season from DeVoe, aka the Thinker, as he has now taken the powers from every single bus meta, including Ralph Dibny in the most recent episode.

This is setting up for a very personal confrontation as we head towards the finale, so Team Flash is going to need some help, which they will be doing so according to the following episode description.

THE TEAM TURNS TO AMUNET BLACK FOR HELP — With DeVoe’s Enlightenment device nearly complete, in order to disable it The Flash (Grant Gustin) and his team must put their faith in an unlikely ally – Amunet Black (guest star Kattee Sackhoff).  Meanwhile, Harry (Tom Cavanagh) hits an all-time low when the “Council of Wells” kicks him out but then Cisco (Carlos Valdes) introduces him to the “Council of Harrisons.”   Kevin Mock directed the episode written by Judalina Neira & Lauren Certo (#421).  Original airdate 5/8/2018.

Kattee Sackhoff's Amunet Black was a new character introduced early on in season four as an antagonist for the team, most specifically for Caitlin and Killer Frost. The character has unique powers where he can wield a special sort of metal on her arm that she typically gets from a bucket that she carries around.

This definitely is an interesting team up to be sure, and I'm not really too sure how exactly she'll be helping the team with her specific powers. Perhaps she will try to trick DeVoe or something.

The actual name of the episode however is focused on Harry, who we recently saw get overloaded with dark matter with his thinking cap.

There have been theories that the dark matter overloaded his brain, perhaps removing his intelligence in some way as we saw him very flustered when trying to help at the end of the last episode.

That remains to be seen though, but it would make sense as to why he would get kicked out of the Council of Wells.

I'm am absolutely looking forward to seeing the Council of Harrisons, as the Council of Wells was absolutely hilarious when they debuted earlier in the season.

This is the kind of hilarious moments that work well as levity during what is likely to be a darker few episodes after the loss of Ralph, so hopefully it will deliver.

Look for "Harry and the Harrisons" to air on The CW on May 8th, with the next episode titled "Fury Rogue" airing this Tuesday, April 24th.
