"Untouchable" is the twelfth episode of the third season of The Flash, and the fifty-eighth episode overall. It aired on February 7, 2017.


Barry and the team at S.T.A.R. Labs work together to bring down Clive Yorkin, a criminal meta-human who is methodically killing people by causing them to decompose at an accelerated rate. Joe becomes his next target, but it’s Iris who is caught in the crossfire. The Flash mentors Kid Flash and begins to elevate the newer speedster’s training to another level.[1]

  • Al Capone's Earth-19 counterpart being referenced on the episode named Untouchable might be a reference to The Untouchables, which was also referenced multiple times on "The Chicago Way", an episode of DC's Legends of Tomorrow featuring Earth-1's Capone as a supporting antagonist.
