EARTH-2

“I know that this is hard to believe, but I mean, it is just like that sci-fi series, Commander Carl, Space Marshal of the Galaxy, where Carl gets sucked into a black hole and ends up on another planet that he thinks is Earth, but really it’s Earth… of another universe. Have-have you guys not s-… oh, it’s a seminal episode. You should check it out.”

Votes were cast. A unanimous decision was made: FIELD TRIP TO EARTH-2, BABY!! 

If someone told me I’d be willing to fight for Dr. Wells after he straight up stole Barry’s speed, I’d have you committed. So why am I? Family. I can’t blame Wells for wanting to protect his daughter. If anything ever happened to Barry or Caitlin, the family I got to choose, I would commit the most heinous crimes—deceive any person that gets in my way—to ensure their safety. 

I’m pumped. I’m literally going to a whole new world—heck, I’ve never even been out of the country! I need to keep my guard up and play it cool, though: this world is RUN BY ZOOM. He’s got the home-field advantage so no one can be trusted from the get-go—Wells is proof of that. I bet he has his own Weather Wizard, too, who’ll strike at his command. Oooh I wonder what the weather’s like this time of year – blisteringly hot, or toe-numbingly cold? But the real question is: what’s my doppelgänger like?! I mean, he’s gotta have major smarts and swag. I’m thinking Steve Jobs, but sexier. Nix the turtleneck; I’m talking David Beckham style. A smooth-talker who all the ladies pine for. Kinda hoping I’ll run into him… Now, I have some extreme packing to do! (Note to self: Ask Wells if there’s a size and weight limit for traveling through breaches with luggage.) I can’t leave without the essentials:

  • Climate-Controlled All-Weather Jacket. But seriously, what is the weather going to be like?? 
  • My homemade Anti-Zoom tech-kit: the Cisco-S.T.A.R.Box 3000, equipped with everything from wires and pliers to night-vision goggles and laser beams, explosive compound chemicals and radioactive agents—and everything in between. Cisco Ramon’s got you covered.
  • Hazmat suit. See above. 
  • Camera. Obviously! Forget Nikon – with some Cisco fine-tuning, I’ll have the ultimate Tech Crunch showstopper. I’m totally going to put my paparazzi skills to the test. Especially if Beyoncé’s doppelgänger happens to walk by. And when I get home, I’ll put the scrapbooking skills I learned from Mama Ramon to keep a book of memories…locked up in S.T.A.R. Labs, of course.  
  • My vibe goggles. How else are we going to locate Zoom’s lair? 
  • My Big Belly punch card. If they accept it out there, I’ll be eating my burger for free!

Have I mentioned that I’m a kinda scared to travel to a galaxy far, far away? Luke made it look so easy… This is real life, and we are about to face against a villain that even The Flash can’t outrun. Thank goodness for my ride-or-die crew. Hopefully with our forces combined, our mission will be successful.
