Synopsis for "Suicide Solution"
With some difficulty, Vibe attempts to rescue Gypsy from A.R.G.U.S.' soldiers in the middle of a public market. He attempts to call his brother for help, and Dante suggests that they go to the place their father used to take them when they were sad, choosing not to be specific, in case Cisco's bosses are listening in.
Meanwhile, Agent Gunn pleads with Amanda Waller for more backup so that his charge doesn't have to be retrieved by Waller's own team of murderers: the Suicide Squad. Unfortunately, Waller thinks it's too late for Cisco, and has already sent her team after, him and Gypsy too.
Reluctantly, Cisco destroys any of his equipment that might be allowing A.R.G.U.S. to track his actions, turning off the camera within his mask. In the meantime, Gypsy explains that she came from a trading people who move between dimensions, bargaining and bartering their way through life. Her father is the leader of that caravan and her stepmother led another. Though the marriage bound their two tribes together, Gypsy hated the woman from the start. When they came to Earth, her stepmother caught her giving a local trader a deal, and forced the tribe to leave without her. When her father found out, he began sending emissaries from different dimensions to send her messages - some of whom encountered Vibe - but she was captured by A.R.G.U.S. and imprisoned in the Circus.
Intending to be helpful, Cisco shifts his visual perspective to see the if he can find the portal through which Gypsy came. Unfortunately, he is unprepared for the numerous doorways he sees, and it overloads his senses, causing him pain. In order to focus him, Gypsy plants a kiss on his lips, and it has both the effect of making him flustered and letting him see the energy pattern that her portal left on her. With that, he may be able to find the path to get her home.
A sudden explosion, though, portends the arrival of the Suicide Squad. Immediately, the pair begin to combine their powers to hide from the Squad's sight. Unfortunately, Deadshot's eye-piece manages to pick them up, and he manages to nick Gypsy with a bullet. While Cisco angrily retaliates, King Shark attacks Gypsy, and prepares to eat her. Before Cisco can respond, he is attacked again by Crowbar, whose weapon redirects and absorbs energy. In response, Cisco grabs the weapon itself, and sends such a blast of energy into it that Crowbar himself disappears, leaving only his weapon behind. Confused, Deadshot knocks Cisco out with a haymaker, and though Gypsy tries to escape by disguising herself as King Shark, Harley Quinn sees through the act, and soon, both fugitives are unconscious and captured.
Elsewhere, Dante waits all night for Cisco to show up at the Patton Highschool trophy case, where their older brother Armando's athletic achievements are on display. Worriedly, he wonders where Cisco is.
Cisco, meanwhile, wakes in the Circus - placed there because of his insubordination. Though Gunn pleads his case, Waller is insistent, and Vibe is punished for his efforts, with Waller warning that if Gunn questions her again, he'll be out.
