Finally! Barry Allen at long last remembered a huge spoiler about his own future that his future-self told him almost a season ago.

One of the big DeVoe spoilers revealed in Season 3 of The Flash was when Savitar (with his suit) strolled through S.T.A.R Labs with Barry and Iris. He wistfully remembered that time Team Flash made the “cerebral inhibitor” to stop DeVoe. Inexplicably, Barry and Iris totally forgot about this hugely helpful bit of information — until now.

In The Flash’s “Subject 9” episode on Tuesday, Cecille and Harry Wells bump into each other and wind up becoming friends. Harry mumbles something about wanting friends his own age, and Cecille needs help blocking out Joe’s dreams. (Remember, her pregnancy gave her telepathy.) It’s a fun, seemingly pointless B-plot until Harry realizes he can invent a device, and he also builds one that can theoretically work on DeVoe.

Except it doesn’t this time around.

Harry Wells might be the one to outsmart The Thinker ... eventually.

The Flash spent a bit of time and energy setting up DeVoe as this season’s big bad even back in Season 3. From the distant future, Abra Kadabra name-dropped DeVoe as one of Barry’s greatest enemies, and then the name came up again from Savitar.

Somehow, both Barry and Iris totally forgot about Savitar’s tip until now. To be fair, it’s been almost a year for them at this point. Barry was trapped in the Speed Force for six months. And then he wound up in jail. Okay, they’ve had a lot going on so maybe we can forgive them for this?

If only they had listened to Savitar-Barry.

Still, The Flash might’ve finally revealed how Team Flash is going to stop The Thinker. We’ve still got three more bus metas left, and DeVoe is now more powerful than ever since he acquired the powers of Izzy Bowen.

But the cerebral inhibitor, once they get it working, will hopefully prevent DeVoe from swapping into any more bodies. It will almost definitely block his telepathy, and for all we know, it could slow down his brain processing enough that Harry Wells might catch up to his level of brilliance.

We can’t possible know what’s in store for Team Flash, but we’ll definitely see them do more with the cerebral inhibitor in the future.

The Flash airs on The CW on Tuesdays at 8 p.m. Eastern.

There are many lists on the internet that rank the greatest fight scenes, or the most impressive stunts pulled off by living human beings. This list is not like any of those. The following items listed below are, with some room for debate, the most influential stunts and action sequences in cinema, the ones that raised the bar and define what action movies looks like today.

The long-awaited Avengers 4 trailer finally delivered a title with Avengers: Endgame (confirming a popular fan theory that the directors had previously shot down). While the first trailer mostly deals with the immediate fallout of the Decimation — when Thanos snapped his fingers and eliminated half the universe’s population — there are a number of details that might be easy to miss.

Fortnite: Battle Royale just made a ton of major changes to introduce Season 7, from new skins to a brand new iceberg biome to powerful new challenges.

Fortnite: Battle Royale Season 7 is finally here, and the infamous “no dancing” signs are once again important. This time around, they’re in some different locations, however.

Season 7 began in the early hours of Thursday, December 6 when the mysterious iceberg crashed right into the island and created a new wintery area in the southwest corner of the map. The new Battle Pass has some exciting new additions, and for some reason there are two dancing challenges in Week 1.
