H.R. Wells is in big, inter-dimensional trouble on Tuesday’s episode of “The Flash.”
Earth 19 bounty hunter Gypsy, played by guest star Jessica Camacho, is heading to S.T.A.R. Labs on a mission to capture him and bring him home to face justice.
“She’s very much come to Earth 1 with the knowledge that she will find H.R. and she will bring him back and he needs to stand trial on our Earth in order to face up to breaking one of our most important laws, which is we do not allow inter-dimensional travel,” Jessica told AccessHollywood.com. “And so you kind of find out why that is and why it’s so necessary he come back to our Earth and stand trial. And her mission is just very much about making that happen no matter what.”
That mission will put her on a collision course with the gang at S.T.A.R. Labs, who will defend their new friend.
“I think when she comes in, she’s like, ‘Oh great, there’s my target. Bam!’ And she just goes for him because that’s very much how she functions,” Jessica said. “Gypsy is a bounty hunter at the top of her game, she’s undefeated, she’s the best of the best, so when she’s on a mission, it’s very easy for her to kind of blur everything else outside of her target. But, when she encounters Team Flash, they very much move as a cohesive group. … She kind of encounters this cohesive resistance. She’s like, ‘Oh, so you all want to be my problem now? OK, I see how it is.’ And I think she’s kind of struck by that. She’s struck by how they all stand up for H.R. so quickly and how they refuse to kind of back down as a team.”

Cisco Ramon/Vibe (Carlos Valdes) – as the trailer reveals – will stand up in battle, even after he learns a battle with an Earth 19 bounty hunter require a battle to the death.
“I think that when Cisco initially feels the impulse to stand up for H.R. and to volunteer himself, I don’t quite think he understands that and so she’s like, ‘Cool, let me spell it out for you. Let me let you know what exactly you’re volunteering for,’ and he finds out that it’s a battle to the death,” she said.
Jessica said seeing someone with Gypsy’s same powers who is so willing to “put himself on the line” for H.R., intrigues her character.
“She finds herself kind of being so curious about this person, so interested in them and then having to stand opposite them on the battlefield and entering into a battle where it is life or death. So in that regard, it’s a big deal,” she added.
Barry Allen is involved in trying to save H.R. too, as The Flash.
“I think she has mad respect for The Flash – it’s hard not to,” Jessica said of what Gypsy things of the Scarlet Speedster. “She definitely knows about The Flash, she definitely has respect for him, but she’s like, ‘Hey, that’s cool, you’re awesome, but right now, we’re not on the same side. So, if you want enter into this, I might do so begrudgingly, but I’ll still do it.’ So, yeah, I think it’s an interesting relationship of both respect and acknowledging his ability and that he is The Flash, but also being like, ‘Cool, well, I’ll fight you.'”
“The Flash” continues Tuesday at 8/7c on The CW.
