Although Gypsy (Jessica Camacho) has to fight Team Flash for getting in the way of her mission to bring H.R. (Tom Cavanagh) back to Earth-19 for his crime of inter-dimensional travel in tonight’s episode of “The Flash,” Camacho suggested in a couple of interviews that her character may have some admiration for the team, particularly for the way they all stand up for the Earth-19 fugitive.
“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,” Camacho told Access Hollywood of how Gypsy thinks of Team Flash after meeting them.
As for why Gypsy is a little taken aback by the way the team protects H.R., Camacho told Collider that her character seems to be longing for this kind of bond.
“Being a bounty hunter, and an undefeated bounty hunter, is probably a really lonely experience, so I feel like she is interested in people and the bonds that they have,” the 34-year-old actress said. “I think she wants that, and she doesn’t have that. She’s always somebody who’s thinking about the next criminal and bringing them to justice, and that’s very much her life.”
Camacho revealed that Gypsy is most curious about Cisco (Carlos Valdes), who volunteers to fight her character to the death in an attempt to save H.R. from his crime. “She feels this instant connection with him, and I think that’s so important because she doesn’t have that,” Camacho said of Gypsy’s reaction to meeting Cisco for the first time. “She doesn’t have the ability to have that closeness with somebody.”
In addition to the fact that both of them can Vibe, Gypsy is also intrigued by Cisco because of his one of a kind personality. “Cisco is so unique,” the “Sleepy Hollow” alum said of Gypsy’s first impression of the S.T.A.R. Labs mechanical engineer. “From the get-go, she recognizes that there’s something different and really unique about this guy, and she wants to know what it is. … She also just thinks he’s cute.”
Tonight’s episode of “The Flash” airs at 8 p.m. EST on The CW. Check out the trailer for Season 3, episode 11, titled “Dead or Alive,” below:
